The Modern Day Nazis Are Taking Over: The Rise of the Social Media Gestapo

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

My father’s side of the family escaped the ravages of Nazi Germany. My German grandmother and my father made certain that I learned the lessons of oppression, discrimination and genocide very well. These principles were ingrained into my upbringing.
At one time, German was the envy of most of the world. They had the best scientists, German education was outstanding and they were leaders in the arts. So how did a highly sophisticated educated and intelligent Germans fall victim to the corrupt Nazis which set the tone for genocide? More to the point of this article, does America need to fear the rise of the same totalitarianism that infested and destroyed Germany? The answer to this question has its roots in the demise of the legitimate church and the compromising of the media and both things are happening in today’s environment..

CONFIRMED: MARK ZUCKERBERG PERSONALLY MADE DECISION TO BAN INFOWARS

from InfoWars:

A New York Times report confirms that Mark Zuckerberg personally made the final decision to ban Infowars.

In an article entitled Facebook Banned Infowars. Now What?, Kevin Roose reveals how, “Late on Sunday, after returning to his hotel room on a trip away from home, Mark Zuckerberg made a decision he had hoped to avoid.”

The report adds that the Facebook CEO “got personally engaged” and “discussed Infowars at length with other executives,” while speculating that Jones may have wanted to get banned to get media attention.

The war to destroy Alex Jones, Part 2

by Jon Rappoport, No More Fake News:

“You see, censorship is good if the person being censored is someone you don’t like. That’s right. You didn’t know that, did you? That’s the secret meaning of the 1st Amendment.”

—Here is how foul the political air is now, how low the ‘logic’ has sunk. If you don’t agree that Facebook censoring a particular person is a good thing, then you must be supporting that censored person. You must be on his side. There is no middle ground. There is no Bill of Rights. There is only like and hate, and hate implies there is a target to be censored—

Whole generations are being raised to think of censorship as a pleasant solution to speech they don’t like, people they don’t like, ideas they don’t like.

Homeless people given barcodes so they can accept online payments

by Jonathan Nicholson, RT:

In an attempt to adapt to the cashless society they now face some homeless people have been wearing barcodes around their necks so passersby can give them money by using their smartphone, in a Oxford University-backed scheme.

‘Greater Change’ – a social innovation project being trialed in Oxford – has issued homeless people with a QR code. Members of the public who want to give them money, but have no change, can use their smartphones to scan the code before completing an online payment.

Is The Censorship Of Conservatives Part Of The Reason Why Facebook Is Losing Massive Amounts Of Traffic?

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

The amount of website traffic that Facebook receives in the United States has “fallen by about half” since 2016, and it is anticipated that this decline in traffic will not end any time soon. Coincidentally (or perhaps not), 2016 also happened to be the year when the censorship of conservatives on Facebook really became noticeable. The events of this week made headlines all over the globe, but the truth is that Facebook has been an egregious censor of conservative viewpoints for a very long time, and it appears that it is really taking a toll on the company. In business, one of the golden rules is to never make your customers angry, but Facebook has chosen to make conservatives very angry over and over again. It was inevitable that many of them would begin to leave, and that is perhaps part of the reason why monthly page visits are down by about four billion over the past two years…

Graphic Video Shows Cop Publicly Execute Man, Shooting Him in the Back as He Ran Away

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Graphic video footage was just released showing a police officer execute a fleeing man by shooting him in the back as he ran away.

Nashville, TN — A disturbing trend seems to be happening among police in America in which they are shooting people in the back as they run away. The latest victim to be publicly executed for running from police is 25-year-old Daniel Hambrick of Nashville. His execution by officer Andrew Delke was caught on a graphic video.

Hambrick was shot and killed during a traffic stop in North Nashville on July 26. Nashville Mayor David Briley called for the release of the graphic video on Wednesday to ensure the “transparency of the investigation.”

Where They Burn Books, They Will Soon Burn People

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

Fact: President Trump is sitting in the White House, today, largely because of the Independent Media.

Fact: President Trump just thumbed his nose to one of his biggest supporters, Alex Jones, when he refused to use the power of the President to reign in the illegal behaviors of the social media monopolies.

Fact: One-time staunch supporter of Trump, Gary Heavin, retired owner of curves, philanthropist and movie producer, stated on The Common Sense Show, that he no longer supports Trump and that he is clearly compromised. In the interview, I was shocked but I could not deny his supporting evidence. I desperately wanted Gary to be wrong! Sadly, everything he said was true.

Alex Jones Censored: Why it Matters and Who’s Next?

by Luis Miranda, The Sleuth Journal:

With Jones’ ban from major social media platforms, we can rest assured that both free speech and freedom of the press are in serious danger.

Different from most people who demand censoring alternative view points, who cry like babies so Freedom of the Press and Freedom of Speech are decapitated, Alex Jones, as imperfect as he is and as much as he has drifted from his roots, serves a greater purpose than most mainstream media.

Jones has been called anything and everything under the sun because of his speech, his stances on real issues and his vociferous tone, which has remained unmatched since he appeared in radio over 20 years ago.

Americans Are Begging the Government and Corporations to End Free Speech

by Carey Wedler, The Anti Media:

This week, internet giants like Facebook, Youtube, Spotify and others banned the notorious Alex Jones and InfoWars from their platforms, and the purge is enjoying widespread support among the left, which has made a reputation for itself as intolerant of differing opinions (last year, for example, a group of Antifa protesters beat one of our own Anti-Media reporters and destroyed his camera equipment at a rally simply because he was filming).

INSIDE GOOGLE’S EFFORT TO DEVELOP A CENSORED SEARCH ENGINE IN CHINA

by Ryan Gallagher, The Intercept:

GOOGLE ANALYZED SEARCH terms entered into a Beijing-based website to help develop blacklists for a censored search engine it has been planning to launch in China, according to confidential documents seen by The Intercept.

Engineers working on the censorship sampled search queries from 265.com, a Chinese-language web directory service owned by Google.

Unlike Google.com and other Google services, such as YouTube, 265.com is not blocked in China by the country’s so-called Great Firewall, which restricts access to websites deemed undesirable by the ruling Communist Party regime.

The “Free” State Steals $39,000

by Eric Peters, The Burning Platform:

Armed government workers in New Hampshire – the supposed “free” state – pulled over Edward Phipps for a minor traffic violation in October of 2016. Apparently, he was driving slightly faster than the posted speed limit and may have been tailgating.

It cost him $39,000.

Phipps made the mistake of carrying an “excessive” amount of cash – a mistake he didn’t know not to make since there’s no law against carrying any amount of cash, in New Hampshire or anywhere else.

The censorship racket EXPLAINED: No due process, no evidence, no defense

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

When government takes away your rights in a criminal prosecution, there’s a “due process” that must be followed. Even though the criminal justice system is corrupt and dishonest in its own way, there is at least recognition that those who are accused may face their accusers; that the accused has the right to see the evidence against them; and that evidence may be presented in their defense.

But in the world of online censorship by tech giants, no due process exists. You’re banned without explanation… you cannot face your accusers… you cannot present evidence in your defense… and no evidence even needs to be cited against you. You can be de-platformed, censored, smeared, slandered and have your entire reputation and business utterly destroyed based entirely on rumors and lies backed up by extreme censorship to silence your dissent.
