Universities To Be Banned From No Platforming Speakers

Sam Gyimiah – education minister for universities (Source: Daily Telegraph)

Universities in the UK are in “danger of developing a mono-culture” where only certain political and ideological views may be expressed, Mr. Sam Gyimah, the Conservative MP for East Surrey, and a minister in the education department has warned.

Mr. Gyimah said one student he met during a nationwide tour of university campuses had “Conservative bitch” written on her bedroom door after airing her political views in a lecture.

In another university, a student had his car egged for expressing his political opinions, the Member of Parliament said.

Speaking to students at King’s College London, Mr Gyimah said attempts to suppress free speech and open debate at universities are ‘chilling.’

The minister will announce a “tough guidance” program on the issue at a free-speech summit that he is chairing today in London, reports The Times.

Under the proposals, the Department for Education would take steps to protect free speech on UK campuses; the first government intervention on the issue since the free speech duty was imposed on universities as part of the Education Act in 1986, says the newspaper.

The guidelines will state that all shades of opinion must be welcome at universities, as long as it does not violate existing laws – for example, on encouraging terrorism. Any university or student union in breach of the rules may be “named, shamed or even fined” by the new Office for Students (OfS) regulator, which will have the power to deregister universities, according to the Daily Mail.

“A society in which people feel they have a legitimate right to stop someone expressing particular views on campus simply because they are unfashionable or unpopular is rather chilling,” Gyimah is expected to tel his audience at King’s College, London. “There is a risk that overzealous interpretation of a dizzying variety of rules is acting as a brake on legal free speech on campus.”

The Times reports an investigation by MPs which found “campaigners against abortion, Christian groups and conservative secularists were among those who have been denied a hearing, and even subjected to violence to prevent tem speaking at British universities”. Feminists who oppose transgender self-identification have been met with similar resistance.

Political figures have also been subjected to this form of censorship by left wing activists at universities. In February, pro-Brexit Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg was caught in the middle of a fight on Bristol University campus when protesters violently disrupted a student event to prevent him speaking.

The new proposals were criticised by Labour’s shadow universities minister, Gordon Marsden, who said that Gyimah was trying to “micromanage free speech issues”. Marsden added that any discussions about regulation should be conducted in the open, rather than at private meetings inside the Department for Education, The Guardian commented.

Marsden might have a point except for there having been an outraged response from the public at reports of people such as Prof Germaine Greer, a lifelong feminist and author of the book The Female Eunuch being prevented from speaking because of her views on transgenderism.

Greer, an uncompromising Aistralian, said, “Having your dick and balls lopped off does not make you a woman, these people will never have periods, they have no ovaries. They cannot know what it’s like to have a big, hairy, smelly vagina.

War On Free Speech Killing Comedy?

 

Sophie Passmann (image: Twitter)

German comedian Sophie Passmann has become probably the first person to have a tweet deleted for being funny under Germany’s new online hate speech law, which is one of the strictest ‘hate’ laws in Europe, although it does not prohibit Muslim Imans from calling on their followers to kill all infidels

Fraulien Passman commented: “There shouldn’t be a law against bad jokes, because that would mean that half the comedians in Germany wouldn’t be allowed on stage.”

Some worry that such laws  have an adverse effect on freedom of speech and thus curtail important civil rights. But others, mostly the snowflake generation, contend that the law, which came into force at the start of this year, is a step in the right direction. I wonder do these people understand how closely their behaviour resembles that of the 17th century Puritans, the people who banned Christmas, music, dancing, and thoroughly disapproved of laughter.

So what did Sophie Passmann do to trigger the snowflakes? Well it wasn’t very funny but it certainly wasn’t offensive. A bit of background is necessary first:

Passmann is a 24-year-old comedian who lives in Cologne, host to a large immigrant community and consequently the place where racial tensions run highest. Every New Year’s Eve Sophie becomes the butt of her friends’ jokes because of one of Germany’s most enduring year-end traditions: the airing of “Dinner for One” across German television. A British sketch originally, it’s about the 90th birthday party of an Englishwoman named Miss Sophie who has outlived all her friends. So her butler makes his way around the dinner table, impersonating each of the guests.

“New Year’s Eve is terrible for a person called Sophie,” says Ms. Passmann. “My friends think it’s funny to call me Miss Sophie all night.” So this year she shot back. On the day the NetzDG law went into effect, she posted a tweet at 9 a.m. that played on the idea that immigrants are destroying German culture: “As long as it’s a tradition in Germany to watch ‘Dinner for One,’ refugees can totally come to Germany and destroy our culture.”

It’s not her best joke, as she is the fist to admit, but it should have been obvious that it was humor. As far as the new puritans are concerned it is unacceptable to mention immigrants or Muslims in any humourous context. By the evening Passman had received multiple notifications from Twitter that users found it offensive, and by nightfall the company had removed it.

Some people may ask why should bad taste be acceptable in humour. My argument is that not only should be acceptable in humour, it is absolutely essential as a tool for puncturing the bubbles of pomposity and self righteousness with which those who would impose their moral prejudices on the whole world like to surround themselves.

Far-Left Group Successfully ‘Bullies’ Newspapers Over Migrant, Transgender Stories

A group of left-wing extremists who have been active campaigners against democracy and free speech are attempting to use legal trickery to limit what newspapers report about immigration, Islam, and transgenderism. They have also been found to have successfully “bullied” business into withdrawing ads from publications that defy their diktat and published honest reports on the efforts of the GBLT lobby to take sexual propaganda into schools or promote ‘gender fluidity’ as something supported by science and something entirely natural to humans and animals.

The Stop Funding Hate (SFH) campaign accuses the popular newspapers The Sun, Express, and Daily Mail of “using hate to sell newspapers,” influencing the gullible masses, and links their reports to an alleged rise in “hate crime.” In fact as any impartial observer will have noted, it is the ‘left’ that bases its political agenda on hate, launching vitriolic cks on people who express non – approved opinions and issuing death threats agains the families of people who openly oppose them.

Ironically the recent rise in what left wing extremists risibly refer to as hate crime includes attacks of Jews and their businesses and property by Muslims, and gang wars between members of street gangs made up exclusively of migrant ethnic groups.

“History has shown us time and again the dangers of demonising foreigners and minorities,” SFH add, seemingly implying news coverage could lead to fascism and genocide. In fact, history shows us that fascism and ethic cleansing most frequently happen in tyrannies where there is no free press, yet that is exactly the situation “Stop Funding Hate” are trying to engineer.

How Can The ‘Left’ Talk Of Equality When They Don’t Tolerate Diversity Of Opinion

<!– http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/11/25/one-thing-left-wont-tolerate-diversity-opinion/ –>

One of the first things I learned at my Grandfather’s knee, as it were, was the importance of free speech and of exposure to different ides and shades of opinion. Grandad had been a member of the Labour party before World War One and had lived through the class wars in the early decades of the twentieth century. My Dad was a Labour man too, until as a newspaper reporter, he learned things about socialism that shocked him.

What dad had discovered was that some time after the 1918 Represtentationn Of The People Act was passed by the national government under David Lloyd George, which extended voting rights to all men and to women over 30, thus paving the way for the working class vote to enable The Labour Party to compete with The Conservatives and eclipse The Liberal Party, certain elitists, aristocrats, wealthy business people and academics feared their elite social class would lose its grip on power. Led by The Fabian Society these new upper class leaders of the party that claimed it was a grass roots working class movement had only contempt for the working classes, whom they regarded as inferior beings.

George Orwell exposed this soon after it had happened, in the second half of his polemical book The Road To Wigan Pier. Orwell had been commissioned to write a study of the terrible working and living conditions endured by the working classes in British industrial towns. What the wealthy, elitist members of ‘The Left Book’ club, which commissioned the study, hoped Orwell would produce was an argument for paternalistic socialism, with a government of enlightened, socialist elitists presiding like the Patrician caste of ancient Rome over the ignorant, stupid, ineducable, almost bestial lower orders.

What Orwell did produce was indeed a study of working class life, but he found among them intelligence, sensitivity and a rough edged kind of nobility in the way they endured the privations of life. In the second part of the book however, Orwell wrote an exposé of the patronising, condescending, self righteous attitudes of these wealthy, virtue signalling socialists. And he was probably the first to identify one of the most despicable traits of these people, their inability to tolerate anybody disagreeing with their utopian vision or pointing out the very obvious flaws in their ideas for solving social problems.

This was no trivial matter, just as it was becoming clear that both Germany’s National Socialists and Russia’s Communists were monstrously tyrannical regimes under which the working classes were as badly off as they had been under the old monarchies, Orwell had revealed that the Fabian socialists rather liked both, particularly Hitler’s policy of eugenics. So long as those born to rule continued to rule and those born to toil were kept in their place, The Fabian’s idea of Utopia stood.

I became a member of The Liberal Party in the early 1960s, at the time The Liberals in parliament were a tiny remnant of the once great party, but at local level they were much stronger. Though the party had become more collectivist and less libertarian than the party of 1918, it was still possible as a liberal to hold and express an unorthodox opinion. The same was true of Labour, but free speech was a privilege extended only to older members. Among the younger ones hatred of anyone opposed to “the agenda” was starting to become de rigeur.

The left, traditionally the political position of individual freedom, personal development and self – determination has since then continued on its path to authoritarianism.

It is very revealing to observe how opinionated Labour supporters women who dare to stray from the party line are treated by ‘new’ Left in Britain today? Just fine, provided one stays on message. Dare to dissent and the mask of diversity and benevolence, over which the Left claims to have a monopoly, slips.

The latest name to be added to the list of people in the Labour Party who have fallen foul of Fabian authoritarian for expressing an unsanctioned view is German born M.P. Gisela Stuart, who, it was reported last week, was allegedly reminded that she “had another country to go to” by former press officer to Tony Blair, Alastair Campbell. Her crime: daring to campaign for Brexit (Mr Campbell called the story “truth mangling”).

First, can you imagine the furore had anyone said that to Jamaican born Diane Abbot with regard to her racist, black supremacist view of white people in Britain? Secondly, it has been established beyond doubt by the attitude of the EU bureaucracy to Brexit negotiations and by the perdormance of the UK economy since the Brexit vote that is was the Remain campaign, supported by campbell and his crony Blair, that mangled the truth in theiur campaign. Thirdly, recent events in Europe have demonstrated that the intention of the E.U. was to create a bureaucratic dictatorship that would swallow all member states into a single European superstate.

What adds to the insult is the suspicion that if any Conservative or Liberal Democrat behaved towards dissenters like that, they would risk their career – but that the Left gets away with so much by invoking a philosophical “get out of jail free” card, they are the party of diversity and multiculturalism.

Incredibly, the now suspended Labour MP Jared O’Mara actually said as much a little while ago, when he refused to resign over his own derogatory comments but suggested that had such bile been uttered by a Tory MP, the situation would have been different because Conservatism doesn’t foster “equality and egalitarianism”. Eventually, and reluctantly it must be said, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was forced by public pressure to act.

What breathtaking arrogance! What stunning hypocrisy! What is the source of this benefit of the doubt the Left is prepared to allow itself but not its opponents? What gives socialists the right to demand that they be held to a lower standard than those to which it holds its opponents? What credibility can this veneer of egalitarianism and tolerance have if its prozelytizers consistently fail to practise what they preach, behave in an increasingly elitist manner and yet continue to take the support of their historic working class constituencies for granted?

The Left’s obsession with the quasi – religious dogma of diversity and equality of race and sex has reduced these important matters to a lazy box-ticking exercise, which a huge section of the population now holds in contempt, ultimately harming the cause of the very groups it claims to be supporting.

If the Left truly values diversity, it must celebrate dissent. People must have the right to oppose same sex marriage, affirmative action hiring policies, academic upliofts for minorities and the promostion of transgenderism in schools. When differing opinions can be houted down and earn those who express them threats of violence, the echo chamber may well sound harmonious, but the while the voices bouncing the walls repeat the same ideas, a dangerous anger is simmering silently on the back burner.

The Demise of Dissent: Why the Web Is Becoming Homogenized

Increasingly what we see on the web is chosen for us, search results and category listings are filtered by algorithms, “Artificial Intelligence” as some insist on calling it. One of the things it is being used for is to fill our newsfeeds with content ‘based on your interests,’ that does not present us with controversial ideas to consider, and silences certain voices and certain opinions.

Post an article critical of the ‘open doors’ uncontrolled immigration policies operated by many nations in the developed world and if it is not removed by search or hosting companies as ‘hate speech’ the chances of it showing up in search results on Google, Bing or Yahoo, or in a users newsfeed on facebook or any of the bigger social media sites are slim and will soon become anorexic as politicians and left wing activists demand constant narrowing of what is considered acceptable within the definition of free speech.

Use DuckDockGo or Dogpile and you will see much more diverse results at the top of your listing. Wolfram Alpha is not exactly a search engine but as the owners put it, “a computational knowledge engine.” Pretentious maybe, but their product is good. One of the main attractions of DuckDuckGo is it does not track users, which is ideal for privacy nerds like myself.

Bing and Yahoo are still around and while they share many of the drawbacks of Google, they are not so inclined to take liberties with our privacy.

One rather unusual choice many are making is to use the Internet ArchiveAlternative (also known as Wayback Machine,) as their search tool of choice. But it’s not my intention to name the best alternatives, a search for “Alternative search engines to google will offer you plenty to choose from.” I did my search on DuckDuckGo and obtained many listings a user could browse.

One of the excuses for the clampdown on diversity of ideas (which comes from those who screech the loudest about diversity of skin colour,) is that it is necessary to prevent the spread of ‘fake news.’

If we do not push back the danger is, we will be left with officially generated and sanctioned fake news and “approved” dissent. Which would be rather like the public debate, such as it is, in Russia, a place the people screeching about the threat posed by fake news to democracy seem to spend a lot of time demonizing.

We’ve all heard a the problem of fake news, i.e. unsubstantiated or erroneous content that’s designed to mislead or sow confusion, on the web, in fact many of the reports about it would leave one thinking it is a new phenomenon, which makes these reports themselves fake news.

Until the mid 1970s my dear old Dad worked for the right wing British newspaper, The Daily Express. This might lead contemporary readers to conclude he was a right wing conservative. On the contrary, like most of his colleagues on the Express news staff he was very liberal in his politics.

“Why did they work for a right wing newspaper then?” modern liberals might well ask. It’s very simple really, they had families to feed and clothe, they had to pay rent or mortgage to keep a roof over their heads and they had to keep themselves supplied with rather disreputable looking raincoats and trilby hats.

Dad told me in the early 1960s, when I was becoming old enough to understand, that everything in newspapers or on television or radio news should be questioned. “It is not fabricated,” he’d say, it just represents a point of view the editor thinks will appeal to people who buy the paper.

Most of the news community in the area he covered, like Dad, had as younger men supported The Laour Party, Britain’s socialist party but being in the news industry were aware that many of the party’s senior figures had, in the 1930s, thought Britain should be making alliance with a certain German gentleman, Herr Hitler. It was a dirty little secret the party did not want not widely known among the public. And as newsmen depend on information from sources with inside knowledge they could not afford to alienate the fast rising left wing party.

I mention this to illustrate how silly the current obsession with fake news is. While I suspect that what is written or said about election meddling by Russia or whoever is nothing but propaganda, most of what is labelled ‘fake news’ is simply news reported from a perspective that people of a certain political position disagree with. It applies to both sides.

But as Dad taught me news publishers and broadcasters are in business to make a profit and sensation sells. And in Britain where the traditional wrapping for our traditional fast food, fish and chips, was a sheet of greaseproof paper for cleanliness and a sheet of newspaper for insulation, there was a saying, “Todays news is tomorrow’s fish and chip wrapper.”

The problem isn’t just fake news of course -it’s the threat to free speech, one of the foundations of a democratic society, by the homogenization of the web, and the elimination or marginalization of independent voices of skepticism and dissent.

There are four political drivers of this push to control information:

The suppression of free speech under the guise of ridding the web of ‘hate speech’ propaganda and mischievous falsehood (aka humour and satire), when diversity of thought is labeled fake news as a cover for silencing critics of the orthodoxy and skeptics who question such dogmas as climate change.

The rapid decline of sales due to the trivial and anodyne nature of published content and the sharp fall in advertising revenues as budgets have been reallocated to web publishers, both major traffic gatherers and small independent publishers like Of Two Minds.

Thanks to a lot of help from governments, the majority of advert revenues now flow into the coffers of the quasi-monopolies Facebook and Google rather than to small publishers representing the true diversity of ideas current in society.

With progressively less diversity in the search market and social media, small publishers have been made increasingly dependent for readers and visibility on these quasi-monopolies most of which share a commitment to the politically correct thinking of parties which though described as left wing or liberal by mainstream media, are in fact illiberal and authoritarian. Thus any publisher who runs incurs the wrath of automatic moderation software used by Facebook and Google, is sent to a digital equivalent of The Chateau d’If, and like the man in the iron mask of Alexander Dumas’ novel, effectively vanishes.

The reason why publishers’ advert incomes are plummeting are four-fold:

Most advertising revenues in the digital market are skimmed by Facebook and Google, whose ‘Artificial Intelligence’ software favours their own business model. This skimming is achieved by the simple expedient of forcing business clients to pay for traffic, no pay, no display.

As the web became more corporate, and the global advertising agencies muscled in on the web market, the ad servers directed increasingly intrusive adverts to web users desktops. Users responded by becoming increasingly ad blind.

Ad blockers have become ubiquitous.

Few people who actually see the ads will click on the display panels that are the standard in desktop web publishing; in other words, these ads are simply not effective, and much of the revenue (up to 60% according to estimates,) is being generated is from bots, software which follows every link on a page, or click fraud, people clicking on adverts not but to generate revenue for the adverstiser. As a result, advertisers are pulling away from these type of ads as they search for advert models that aren’t so vulnerable to click-fraud.

The web is increasingly shifting to mobile, a development I’m not part of as I can’t stand Smart Phones, when I’m not in I am out, end of conversation,) but obviously a phone a smaller display area and responsive page design will move ads out of sight in favour of content.

This systemic loss revenues for everyone other than FB and Google is increassingly evident from the smallest publisher to the giants: Buzzfeed, which attracts millions of page views per day was reported by WSJ to be Set to Miss Revenue Target, Signaling Turbulence in Media. Prospects for a 2018 initial public offering by the high-profile publisher now look likely to be deferred.

BuzzFeed’s troubles are the latest sign that the online-ad business is in trouble, making it tough for new-media startups to live up to expectations and ludicrously inflated stock valuations of recent years.

As a result of this censorship of dissenting views (and sensation which according to my Dad is what sells news,) under the excuse of limiting fake news, and the erosion of advert income reaching independent publishers, those sites that try to offer an accurate and thoughtful news service are losing ground. While private individuals who post on on Facebook and other social media sites have little expectation of monetizing their content, many web publishers have in the past made enough income off adverts or affiliated income (from YouTube channels, for example) to justify the enormous time and effort they expended keeping their channel/site going.

One of the changes now happening in the world of online content is that income generation is switching from advertising to sponsorship vial small donations. PayPal and other systems for processing small transactions make this possible for individials publishing online, services like Paetreon act as collectors for small donations, and there are signs that users are coming round to the idea that if they want to read well written content with well chosen graphics, hear decent music or talks, see well put together video, and all of it well presented, then the people who create such content deserve to be paid.

People who do not agree are welcome to the piano playing cats, sad eyed puppies and selfies on Facebook.

No Advertising – No Government Grants – This Is Independent Media

As advert income has dwindled, there are only two other revenue models available to publishers: a subscription service or donations button, i.e. the direct financial support of users/readers/viewers. Major publishers are struggling to build a subscription base large enough to fund their operations, a task made more difficult by the expectation that all content is free or should be free.

Patreon has been a boon for thousands of independent writers, journalists, cartoonists, filmmakers and other creators of content. The Patreon model (as I understand it, and yes I have a Patreon campaign) is not based on content that’s behind a paywall available to subscribers only, but on providing incentives in the form of content or other rewards to those who choose to contribute.

The Patreon model only works if enough users/readers/viewers step up to support content creators they value. I think the success of Patreon suggests that many people are willing to support the content creators they value. But like all voluntary revenue models, there’s the free-rider issue: people who may have the income to pay a bit for content choose not to, and in essence free-ride on those few who do contribute/pay for content.

Some people have advanced the model of micropayments as the solution to the problem of compensating content creators fairly. While this model has some obvious benefits–pennies charged for access to content might add up to a living for content creators if their audience was large enough–it would still be a voluntary system, and thus it would have the same free-rider issue as every other voluntary payment-for-content idea.

Posting “free” content on social media ends up driving advert revenues to the social media and search monopolies, leaving nothing for the content creators. There is only so much serious content that can be created for free.

If what we’re left with is “free” content (i.e. the creator gets no income for creating and posting content), Facebook, Google and click-bait link farms of sensationalist headlines, we’ll end up with a thoroughly homogenized web of “approved content” underwritten by lobbyists, the entertainment industry and elitist foundations/think tanks, and little in the way of real dissent or diversity of independent analysis.

In other words, we’ll be left with officially generated and sanctioned fake news and “approved” dissent: unemployment is at record lows, inflation is near zero, the “recovery” is alive and well, Russia is the enemy and any suggestion to the contrary is propaganda that must be eradicated as fake news, etc.

Simply put, the web is becoming Orwellian. There’s plenty of approved “diversity of opinion,” but dissent is being sidelined to the fringes as a risk to the perfection of managed content.

When Is Speech Or The Written Word Violence?

Political totalitarianism is coming to America, and via The United States Of America it will spead through the rest of the developed world if we do not resist. This week we have seen the latest social meltdown in a U.S. city people meeting to attend an officially authorised protest against the removal of a statue depicting the Confederate General Robert E. Lee were attacked by left wing rent-a-mob thugs who though not authorised to protest had decided to disrupt the rally.

Unfortunately rent-a-mob were not the only ones who learned of what was planned. Right wing thugs from the KKK and other extremist organisations decided they were going to make sure the rally in support of General Lee went ahead. And the rest is reported in the newspapers, though you may foind many contradictory accounts. just as truth is the first casualty of war, so objectivity is the first casualty of civil unrest, and if you have the impression that in the U.S.A. it is now impossible to be a neutral observer, you are not the only one.

The same is going on around Europe of course as those who style themselves ‘the left’,n an orgy of virtue signalling, increasingly adopt the position of reverse racism by demanding governments prioritise the interests of minorities over those of the majority and are imposing their warped view by describing any criticism as racism, fascism and ‘hate speech.’ Authoritarian attitudes are being ushered in not by paramilitary thugs in jackboots but by progressive activists and their allies in Silicon Valley and in the mainstream media. Increasingly free speech is being threatened by Google and Facebook algorithms that filter out from search results anything the ‘liberal’ elite do not approve of.

In a chilling oped, When Is Speech Violence published in The New York Times on July 14, psychology professor Lisa Feldman Barrett, who teaches at Northeastern University, argued that the risibly misnamed crime of “hate speech” is the same thing as physical violence because it may possibly cause emotionally fragile individuals stress. Without defining what exactly constitutes hate speech, the professor argues that should be made illegal. This is of course making opinions illegal, for example if a white Christian or atheist is guilty of hate speech for demanting tighter controls on immigration, how can it be OK for an Islamic fundamentalist Imam call on Muslims to ‘rise up ans slaughter the infidel.

While politicians are mealy mouthed when confronted with this contradiction, internet technology companies are taking it upon themselves to stamp-out so-called “hate speech,” smothering free speech and the free exchange of ideas in the process.

A number of troubling actions by internet companies — Google (Don’t be evil – that’s our job,) being most prominent among them — are making it increasingly clear that some in Silicon Valley have proclaimed themselves defenders of the politically correct creed, of the new fascism and that those firms will silence any and all heretics who challenge the dogmas of these techno – inquisitors.

“Silicon Valley lives in a politically regressive, exclusive bubble. They are not aware of their own biases in how they talk, have a limited understanding of the philosophy behind free speech, and find it difficult empathizing with other points of view,” says Aaron Ginn, co-founder of the Lincoln Network, a think tank that seeks to promote libertarian ideas in the tech industry.

It is not just that Google is not promoting points of view which dissent from the techno – orthodoxy, the search giant, aleady in trouble with regulators around the wortld for abusing its near monopoly position, is also actively trying to suppress diversity of opinion. Google recently and controversially fired software engineer James Damore for authoring an internal memo questioning the company’s ideologically motivated but hypocritical diversity policies by highlighting the gap between policy and practice and citing sound scientific evidence suggesting that possible biological differences between men and women, not discrimination, could be a factor in the tech field’s high percentage of male professionals.

In the aftermath of Damore’s firing, former Google employees stepped forward and on condition of anonymity revealed the true extent of the company’s efforts to silence non – liberal voices among its staff. One anonymous employee identified as “Hal” told Breitbart News last week that some employees in Google’s ad sales department are “openly encouraging Adwords customers to pull their ads from Breitbart and Rebel Media.”

Another employee identified only as “Emmet” confirmed this with Breitbart News, and also revealed the existence of “efforts to demote anything non-PC, anti-socialist, and anti-Islamic from the company’s search results.”

Emmett says he personally witnessed efforts from leftists within Google to bias YouTube’s algorithms to push anti-PC content off the platform’s ‘related videos’ recommendations. Breitbart reported “The software could just ‘astroturf’ your Related Videos section [an effort to hurt overall ratings], and you would be none the wiser.”

“Sure, if you know what to look for, perhaps you’d notice,” he continued. “But the vast majority of the viewership would never ever know. That’s the whole point of such a disinformation program, right? If you can tell it’s disinformation, you would never, ever believe it,” the whistleblower added.

People familiar with the process have told reporters recently that YouTube, a Google spin – off, is also laboring to cleanse its platform of alternative voices that challenge the mainstream liberal narrative, removing videos crotical of Islamic extremism, but contunuing to show videos of stonings and beheadings in Muslim countres, content advocating sex with young children and anti – Christian violence, including video of white women being gang raped by Muslim men in northern Europe. The video-sharing site has in the past few months systematically demonetized videos of right-wing commenters and journalists, such as Infowars editor-at-large Paul Joseph Watson and former Rebel Media reporter Lauren Southern.
