Fascists Attack Popular Penn Delco President

Fascists Attack Popular Penn Delco President — Leon Armour, who overwhelmingly won a four-year term on the Penn Delco School Board in November and was picked by his peers as board president, is under fire for Facebook comments.

Leon Armour, one of the good guys

A petition is being circulated to remove him. It’s part of the Cancel Culture. No, there is a better name for it. It’s the Karen Culture. Yeah, the Karen Culture. Pompous, merciless bullies who are certain they are so righteous they can destroy anybody who disses the beliefs they have become conditioned to parrot.

Remember, the Supreme Court just ruled Karens can be males too.

In February 2018, Armour posted a photo of a rifle with the comment “I’m still monitoring it to see if it goes on a killing spree. So far it hasn’t moved.” Oh, the horror. The weapon never did go on a killing spree. It’s actually an excellent way to make a point and tell a truth.

He posted other, less inspired, comments involving illegal immigration, Islam and crime but just the same we are getting sick and tired of people having their lives ruined for moments of social media stupidity. Wonder how those passing the petition would fare with a Twitter exam. Frankly, only the most insipid and banal would likely pass.

Armour is only getting grief because he is the face of a board that is not a rubber stamp for the progressive God-is-dead types that run the teachers union.

The progressives are pushing to defund the police. What would be far better for a happy society would be to abolish school districts and take all that money we spend on education and give it directly to parents so they can choose their kids schools.

Gab Growing Up, Usability Improving

Gab Growing Up, Usability Improving — The free-speech social media platform Gab has gotten more usable and getting some well-known names who have banned or shadow-banned on Twitter. Sharyl Attkisson is posting there and just posted a link to her interview with President Trump. Milo Yiannopoulos is also a regular poster as is Alex Jones.

You don’t have to like these people to defend their right to speech. Al Sharpton, after all, is a regular contributor to Morning Joe. We don’t want him banned.

Here is the direct link to Sharyl’s interview, which you probably haven’t heard, with the President.

8chan Watkins Posobiec Interview

8chan Watkins Posobiec Interview — 8chan owner Jim Watkins, yesterday, Sept. 6, told OANN’s Jack Posobiec that his feared free speech site will soon be back and that he will continue his policy of not proactively censoring speech. It would be unAmerican to do otherwise he said.

8chan was forced off the web, Aug. 5, after the mass shootings two days earlier in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. Big tech web security firm Cloudflare killed 8chan as a client after they accused it of inspiring the shootings by allowing the posting of a manifesto by El Paso killer Patrick Crusius.

Watkins has pointedly noted that Crusius had posted his screed on mainstream Instagram and that it was someone else who put it up on 8chan as others did on other boards.

Let’s note that it was Facebook that allowed the live streaming of the New Zealand mosque massacre, YouTube that allowed threats by Parkland killer Nikolas Cruz, and Twitter who let their platform be used by the Saudis to stifle dissent.

It’s the epitome of irony that 8chan is being attacked by the establishment as a “hate site”.

Watkins testified before the House Homeland Security Committee, Sept. 5, in a closed-door session. Watkins told Posobiec that he described his site, and explained that it wasn’t funded by any foreign governments. He said he never worked with a foreign intelligence agency. He noted that Russia has blocked access to 8chan.

Watkins said he cooperates with U.S. law enforcement agencies and that, in fact, Congress and the executive branch should seek input from tech companies to make it easier to do so.

Here is the interview.

OK, here’s a link to the full interview:

Forgive the nasty label they give Posobiec, a Norristown native. He is a outspoken Qanon skeptic and 8chan is the official medium of the Q movement.

Ads Banned For Gender Stereotyping

Ads Banned For Gender Stereotyping — Free speech defender Bob S of Swarthmore sent us this link about bureaucratic bullies in the U.K. banning ads for Volkswagen and Philadelphia Cream Cheese for “gender stereotyping.”

It is just as wrong to ban ads teasing women or showing a woman doing a traditional female task as it is to ban ads teasing men or showing a woman doing a traditional male task.

Let freedom reign and the proper and desired social equilibrium will be found.

Gab Dissenter May Rock Web

Gab Dissenter May Rock Web — Gab.com, the free-speech Twitter alternative that we have been following for the last 15 months or so, has taken a big step with the release of Dissenter, a product that will allow uncensored commenting on any website.

Gab Dissenter

That means the Washington Post and CNN cannot keep you from pointing out their falsehoods. It means Facebook and Twitter can’t stop you from responding. It even means Wikipedia can’t stop you from correcting their articles.

Dissenter is also a great news feed and information source.

Dissenter is fully described here.

Fastest Growing Social Media Platform Is Gab

Gab.com — a social media alternative to Facebook and Twitter — has published the below statement regarding its commitment to free speech and noting that now the fastest growing social media platform in the world. It’s worth posting here considering the revelations of Orwellian group-think coming out of Silicon Valley.

Gab.com operates according to one principal rule: if speech is allowed under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and our User Guidelines, it is allowed on our site. This is because, per Sir Stephen Sedley in the seminal English free speech case DPP v. Redmond-Bate, “freedom only to speak inoffensively is not worth having.”

We are proud to have recently met our fundraising goal of $1.07m raised directly from The People. We have made considerable progress this month making Gab the home of free speech, free association, and the free market online. This includes an update to our mute system that gives more control to individual users to shape their own experience. Unfortunately we still have not been able to get a new payment processor, although we are accepting checks to our PO Box and will be integrating bitcoin as a payment option shortly.

On a daily basis, our company uses the protection afforded by the First Amendment, federal data privacy law, and American global hegemony to provide a utility for users all over the world, wheresoever they might be, to publish their innermost thoughts and engage in open dialogue without fear of recrimination from unfriendly and repressive governments. Put another way, we structure our affairs to afford all our users the full measure of due process rights available in the United States.

As a result, Gab is now the fastest-growing social media platform in the world. We have acquired over 800,000 users and new Gabbers are joining the site at a rate of nearly 100,000 a month from across the planet. Gab has over 10.6 million visits a month and is quickly becoming a home for those who wish to think, speak, and express themselves freely.

One unintended consequence of our moderation policy is that Gab has attracted, shall we say, a colorful user base. Most if not all of the team, from the CEO down to our external contractors and service providers, can find an enormous amount of content on the site which we each find morally or politically objectionable, even personally hateful.

However, we understand that adopting a moderation policy that mirrors the First Amendment will result in users of our site expressing views with which we disagree, including “the thought that we hate.” See Matal v. Tam, 582 U.S. ___ (2017). We do not, unlike virtually every other social media company in existence, think we have any right to try to change what our users think.

The mainstream media strongly implies that Gab’s provisioning of a forum for this speech runs the risk of encouraging expression “(escalating) from online speech to real-world action.” We dissent. Hateful speech may be found on every platform with millions of users, including Twitter and Facebook; Gab is not alone in this regard.

Furthermore, we actively monitor the site for speech that crosses the line from the merely outrageous into the truly threatening or unlawful. Where criminal activity is brought to our attention, we act swiftly to curtail it and, where possible, cooperate with law enforcement to ensure our users’ safety – real, physical, safety, not wishy-washy millennial “safe space” safety – is secured.

When one creates a space where controversial speech is permitted, controversial speech should be expected. This is only news for anyone who doesn’t understand what “free speech” actually means. And today, Gab stands as the largest social network in the world that willing to take the heat involved in standing by this oldest and most classically liberal principle of liberal democracy.

Much has been made recently of social media companies’ moderation policies seeking to strike balances between civility and liberty. Civility-oriented moderation strategies are referred to as the “European tradition” and liberty-oriented strategies are referred to as the “American tradition.”

We follow the American tradition to the letter. We will continue to do so as long as the company exists.

Season Reason Bugs HOA In Gettysburg

Season Reason Bugs HOA — A homeowners association in Gettysburg ordered Mark and Lynn Wivell to remove the word “Jesus” from a Christmas display.

HOAs are notorious for their enforcement of conformity and lack of respect for the wishes of the residents to personalize their abodes, still this association allowed for Christmas decorations.

A resident, though, apparently offended by the reason for the season, complained and the timid mice who run things danced to the complainer’s tune rather than let matters run their inevitable course namely the word’s removal in mid-January.

The Wivells say the plan on keeping the word as part of their display until the schedule time to take it down on Jan. 15.

Good for the Wivells. How about just following the principle that if someone is not hurting you just let them be?

Hat tip Bob Small.

Free Speech, Political Correctness And Hate

Free Speech, Political Correctness And Hate — Attention-seeker Kathy Griffin who some call a comedian circulated a photo of herself holding our President’s bloody head.

This isn’t speech to be defended. Speech to be defended concerns telling objective truths i.e. Nigger Jim was a character in Huckleberry Finn, and expressing opinions i.e. the theory of evolution is wrong.

Speech that unambiguously incites violence, much less murder, must not be defended. Note the word “unambiguously”. Certain snowflakes, who are ironically far more likely to be fans of Ms. Griffin than the rest of us, would claim that saying MAGA or that homosexuality is sinful incites violence. That is the Kafkaesque sea in which they swim.

In the 1960s and 1970s, funnymen like Redd Foxx, Don Rickles and Mel Brooks used ethnic humor in ways that would give the children who now set our social standards vapors. There was no hate in what they said, though. One always felt they actually liked the people they teased.

That is not the case for the “edgy” garbage that passes for “humor’ today. Holding the bloody head of a living person can only be construed as hate.

George Gawrych Shouted Down At Cal State Northridge

George Gawrych Shouted Down At Cal State Northridge — Bob Small of Delco Debates forwarded from Eugene Volokh about how a group of Armenian students shut down a lecture by scholar George Gawrych at California State University Northridge.

Gawrych’s subject was Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. It was part of “Ataturk Week” which involved events in Southern California scheduled for Nov. 9-13.

Kemal was an Turkish army officer who became leader of that nation in 1923 after years of war and chaos. He modernized the nation and was bestowed with the surname “Ataturk” meaning “Father of the Turks”. George Gawrych Shouted Down At Cal State Northridge

Armenians, however, blame Ataurk for expunging their people from Turkey claiming he drove off those Armenians who survived 1915 Genocide during the Turkish War of Independence.

Ataturk is not considered to have been involved with the genocide itself.

Regardless, speakers should never be shouted down at any university and schools must respect the rights of all invited speakers to have their say.

Danish Free Speech Defender Nearly Killed

Danish Free Speech Defender Nearly Killed — Lars Hedegaard is a 70-year-old academic who founded Denmark’s Free Press Society in response to the threats and violence surrounding the publication of cartoons depicting Mohammed by Danish newspapers in 2005.

He is now living in secret after an attempt on his life. A young Muslim dressed as a postman came to his door and when Hedegaard answered he pulled a pistol — one should note he was violating Denmark’s restrictive gun laws by doing this — and fired at his head. The elderly scholar then punched him  causing him to drop his gun. The assassin wannabe then picked it up and tried to fire again only to have it jam, after which he scurried off.
