PC does not mean “Politically Correct.“— Stefan Molyneux (@StefanMolyneux) April 30, 2019
PC means “Pro-Communist.“
MILO and PJW are violent? What did I miss? Did they have a pillow fight? https://t.co/rEMQB9i0Aq— EMPEROR ‘KINGFISH’ WHITEPILL (@CptBlackPill) May 2, 2019
“New York (CNN Business)Facebook announced Thursday afternoon that it had designated some high-profile people, including Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who’s notorious for using anti-Semitic language, and right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, as “dangerous” and said it will be purging them from its platforms.
Jones and his media outlet InfoWars had previously been banned from Facebook (FB) in in August 2018, but had maintained a presence on Instagram, which is owned by Facebook. On Thursday, Jones and InfoWars will be barred from Instagram as well.
Other people banned Thursday include fringe right-wing media personalities Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos and Paul Joseph Watson. Also included are Paul Nehlen, an anti-Semite who unsuccessfully ran for Congress in 2016 and 2018. …”
I don’t even really use Facebook anyway because it sucks and it seems like 90% of internet drama is started there. I also hate the clunky interface and can’t even be bothered to post my own content on the Facebook page. Perhaps I am just not as disciplined about that as PJW though.
As for this latest purge, it is just the latest proof that political correctness is an evil and divisive ideology which pits groups against each other, suffocates our traditions like free speech and individual liberty, intensifies animosity by making issues like race and immigration toxic and banning disagreement in the public square and that it is unsustainable in the long run and that all of this censorship of the populist Right over the past three years is going to come back to wallop Big Tech.
.@voteojeda2020 Richard Ojeda is right. Universal Basic Income would help millions of Americans do much more. $1,000/mo. no strings attached. It will be spent locally, help pay off debt, the occasional night out. Thank you for the shout out Richard.???? pic.twitter.com/a1BGEZQfqY— Andrew Yang (@AndrewYang) May 2, 2019
What do I mean by this? Sooner or later, more people on the populist Right are going to figure out how to beat Silicon Valley’s censorship. Instead of using these social media platforms to talk about race and Jewish influence and all these other social issues, the populist Right is going to shift gears and go back to its roots and start talking about busting trusts, regulation of Silicon Valley, dismantling free-market capitalism, expropriating billionaires, raising taxes, Universal Basic Income, how Silicon Valley developing AI, automation and robotics is getting rich by robbing the working class blind.
I predict the issue is going to boomerang on Silicon Valley by stoking so much anger in Middle America about the arrogance and economic privilege of our liberal tech overlords who have the audacity to try to rig our politics that the peasants are going to come after them in the same way they once went after J.P. Morgan and John D. Rockefeller and all the other bloated capitalists of the Gilded Age.
Note: The Chinese will laugh all the way to the bank as their rivals in global markets in San Francisco come under siege and are trust busted and broken apart like Standard Oil and AT&T. This is also why I cheer them on as they clone Silicon Valley’s technology. I also can’t wait to see Chinese corporations destroy American multinational corporations in global competition in the 2020s and 2030s. I want to see Silicon Valley trapped in a pincer movement between Chinese global competition and populist and progressive regulation of Big Tech in Washington.
joking/not joking why aren’t you getting on Facebook and Twitter to talk solely about Universal Maximum Income and regulating and trust busting Big Tech?
