Free Speech: And… It’s Gone, by Tom Luongo

There’s free speech and there’s acceptable speech, but you can’t have both. From Tom Luongo at tomluongo.com:

It’s no surprise to me that the war against speech is accelerating. There’s desperation in the air everywhere.

From the barricading of the U.S. Capitol since January 6th to the shrill calls for continued lockdowns over a virus mostly behind us, we see those with power lashing out trying to hold on to it.

Twitter alternative Gab was immediately dropped by PayPal without specific reasons.

Then immediately, Gab’s latest hosting service unilaterally gave the company a 48-hour termination notice of its contract.

Murder in Pittsburgh and the Targeting of Alternative Social Media, by Kurt Nimmo

Now an alternative media site is being ostracized because the Pittsburgh shooter used it. From Kurt Nimmo at theburningplatform.com:

Robert Bowers, the suspected shooter at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, is being used to denounce social media not on the corporate reservation.

Bowers had an account on Gab, the free speech social media alternative to Twitter and Facebook, where he posted antisemitic content, and this is now being used to portray the site as a haven for antisemites.

Gab posted the following on Twitter:

I don’t believe this will work. Gab, often described as a refuge for alt-righters bounced from corporate-government social media, is targeted for destruction.
