You may agree or disagree with the efficacy of Hydroxychloroquine against the coronavirus, but everyone should agree on this point:
No Big Tech company should have the power to erase from the internet the medical opinions of licensed practicing doctors simply because they do not like what they have to say about the coronavirus or their experience treating it. Americans and other free peoples do not need leftist computer programmers deciding what the best course of medical treatment is for them.SIGN PETITION
Google/YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Apple, and their Big Tech friends want to control what you see, what you read, what you think, and ultimately, how you vote. Not only do they spend hundreds of millions of dollars on lobbying congress and buttering up big Washington DC think tanks, but now they brazenly and directly censor any content they don’t want you to see.
This must stop, but it won’t unless we demand it as forcefully as legally possible. We believe that we have reached the point were Big Tech must be broken up if legitimate free speech is going to survive and continue to thrive on the internet.
Please CLICK HERE to sign our petition to demand real consequences for Big Tech’s suppression of legitimate free speech.
In an era where almost everything is polarized, there is an overwhelming support for breaking up the Big Tech monopolies. A recent Pew poll found that 75% of Americans believe that Big Tech companies have too much influence.
It is time to bring serious accountability to Big Tech for their attempts to use their monopolies to kill free speech.It is time to break up Big Tech.
PLEASE SIGN THIS URGENT PETITION, TODAY!

Tonight Facebook censors deleted my post of America’s Frontline Doctors. The main form of communications for many people must now please and pander 2 Zuckerberg. If ma Bell did this to phone lines & communications would we be so accepting? #onpoli#cdnpoliQuote Tweet
Randy Hillier@randyhillier · 14hEarly this morning Facebook removed over 2500 likes and 2000 shares from my post regarding America’s Frontline Doctors. It appears the only freedom we truly have, is the freedom to comply with and obey the orthodoxy. #onpoli #cdnpoli twitter.com/randyhillier/s…
Facebook Censorship of Humour & Commentary
Videographer Diane King Reports
THIS CARTOON GOT FLAGGED BY FACEBOOK – I had posted it once in response to a like-posted comment
They are likely elected to office and also running FB. Diane
(Tea Party 247) – Facebook is stepping up their censorship game. Natural News was just recently banned for content that was never even shared on the social media platform and that’s a scary occurrence. Just when we thought Big Tech was already the most powerful industry in America, they prove they have even more tricks up their fascist sleeves.
What Facebook is looking to create is an online echo chamber where everything posted, and not posted, is lockstep with the Leftist agenda including all things LGBT and baby murder.
As Ethan Huff points out in an article on Evil News,
Soon, if you don’t brand all of your profile photos with the over-layered, six-colored “rainbow” of LGBTQP during “Pride Month,” for instance, Facebook might decide to terminate your account for committing “hate silence.” This is the direction where things are headed as the Tech Cabal increasingly targets free-thinkers who break from the herd with suspension, shadow-banning, de-platforming, and even permanent bans for violating their ever-evolving litany of “community guidelines,” which always cater to Leftists at the expense of conservatives.
Now the truth is deemed hate speech and whether you post it or just quietly support it, you are likely to violate Facebook’s ever-changing “community guidelines,” as they are dictated by the ever-devolving Leftist agenda. Don’t be surprised when conservatives are soon being targeted for committing “hate silence” by simply holding different views than the loving, tolerant Left. Once Facebook sees that you are not publicly supporting Pride Month or the mutilation of pre-pubescent “trans” children you will be flagged and targeted.
This kind of censorship is absolutely insane and a direct violation of our First Amendment right. It’s also extremely hypocritical of the Left, which is something that has become par-for-the-course. Literally every idea, cause, or movement the Left pushes is somehow in contradiction with either itself or other Leftists ideas, causes, or movements.
Just look at how their victimhood hierarchy is constructed. At the very pinnacle of the caste system are “transgender” people, then women are somewhere towards the top but not higher than transgender. Now biological men are dominating women’s sports simply by claiming to actually be women. The “transgender” agenda is at odds with “women’s rights and equality.”
Now we have the Left yelling “fascist” at conservatives all while they blatantly censor us across all forms of social media. Now they want to control our thoughts and take away our right to have our own opinions and beliefs! This has to stop.
There is no way they don’t see how hypocritical they are which makes it even more disturbing. As Huff puts it, “This is what today’s Left expects, after all: absolute compliance with every single one of their “progressive” dictates, no matter how insane or ridiculous.”
If you even so much as dare believe that abortion is murder and that dismembering unborn babies is violent and evil and should be illegal, you are deemed a threat to the Left. If you post these obvious truths they will accuse you of “hate speech” and if you don’t post content that shows you support baby murder they will accuse you of “hate silence.” This is a scary direction we are going in.
Our only hope is that President Trump makes good on the allegations he has recently leveraged against Big Tech and follows through on his promises to end the censorship by Big Tech tyrants.

The Secretary of State welcomes this ” huge news “, “They told us (that) they would transmit the IP addresses for the hate content online that would be requested by the justice,” he explains. , quoted by Le Figaro . A step forward specific to France, which according to Cédric O, will allow the “judicial process” to “proceed normally”.
Facebook used to deliver IP addresses to the courts only in cases involving terrorism and child pornography . Now, this cooperation extends to hate online.
|My 65 years as a free writer—and censorship|
How would you like to be thinking this? “I’m a censor. I spend my waking hours keeping people from writing and speaking, by cutting off their access to the public. That’s my job and I love it. I love the feeling of shutting someone down…”
I picked up a pen and started writing when I was 16, in 1954. I knew I had struck gold. WRITING. Freedom. Words. Sentences. Poetry. Images. Ideas. This was my universe. It wasn’t run by some tin-pot teacher or official. I could keep making worlds. What could be better?
I’ve never changed my mind about that. So when someone tells me—or a faceless company tells me—that I’m censored, I don’t take to it kindly. And I immediately know the faceless ones are rank filthy idiots. Or scrupulously clean robots. Either way, they’ve jumped species. Downward.
Why did they censor me? Was it my articles about toxic vaccines, about freedom of the individual vs. the State, about the CIA, about Obama, about Trump, about political liars, about medical drugs killing millions of people? Lots to choose from. Who really cares what it was exactly? It was CENSORSHIP.
I wasn’t laying out charts for building H-bombs. WordPress shut down my blog without notice or warning or explanation. However, I see no reason to stop writing. So I’m keeping on. I’ve got people employing “other means” to get the blog back up. Regardless, here I am.

“If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all.” —Noam Chomsky
The real job of society is educating people so they are “immune” to other people’s views. What does that mean? This immunity, what is it? It’s the ability to understand and analyze someone else’s statements and make a decision about them. Agree or disagree. Accept one part, reject another part. The immunity consists of not impulsively buying what others are selling.
In the 1950s, we had, in the US, a Red Scare. It consisted of Communist ideology. The question was, should students be allowed to read the Communist Manifesto, or should Marx’s pamphlet be burned and banned? The knee-jerk reaction was: ban the booklet. The minority opinion was: let students read it and understand it. But of course, the American school system hadn’t prepared pupils to analyze ANYTHING.
So there was no solution. The whole Red Scare faded away eventually, as a “kinder, gentler” Leftist ideology spread through the country like ink on a blotter.
EDUCATION SHOULD PREPARE PEOPLE TO MAKE UP THEIR OWN MINDS THROUGH THOUGHT AND LOGIC.
Censorship is the coward’s way out.
Censorship works when evil people accumulate enough power. This power CAN BE affected when a strong enough public reaction occurs. That’s called a clue.
I’m a writer. I’m writing my way out of censorship. Help spread my articles, past and present, far and wide. At nomorefakenews.com, consider ordering my three Matrix collections.
When I was 15, our history teacher was gone for two weeks. In strode a substitute. He basically said—“I’m going to use this time to teach you logic. I’m going to show you what a vague generalization is, so you can recognize it and not fall for it. I’m going to show you how to analyze what you read. This is WORK, class, but you’ll be glad you did it. So let’s dig in.”
It took me about three minutes to see a light go on. It was very bright. I felt a surge of power. Nothing was ever the same after that.
Years later, when I had my first encounter with censorship, I shrugged it off immediately. I was in possession of something much stronger.
This article is dedicated to that substitute teacher. And to you, the reader.

Facebook has shut down 23 major populist Italian pages with 2.5 million followers just two weeks before the European elections.
[It’s time to demand legislation that will treat these near monopolies — Facebook, You Tube, PayPal, Twitter — as public utilities which will be forbidden to discriminate against people because of their views or beliefs. Spread the world! — Paul Fromm., Director, CANADIAN ASSOCIATION FOR FREE EXPRESSION.]
According to Italian media, the majority of the pages supported the populist parties La Lega (The League) and the 5-Star Movement (M5S) — who currently govern Italy in a temporary coalition.
Facebook has justified its dramatic move by claiming that the sites shared fake news, so-called “hate speech”, and “divisive content” regarding immigrants, vaccines, and Jewish people.
Facebook used information from a report produced by a left-progressive NGO called Avaaz, which deals with “human rights” and environmental campaigns.
“We thank Avaaz for sharing its research so we could investigate,” said a Facebook spokesperson. “We are committed to protecting the integrity of the EU elections and around the world. We have removed a series of false and duplicate accounts that violated our policies on the subject of authenticity, as well as several pages for violation of the policy on changing the name.”
“We have also taken action against some pages that have repeatedly spread misinformation. We will take further measures if we find other violations,” the spokesperson warned.

Delingpole: Then Facebook Came for Paul Joseph Watson…
President Trump retweeted a Breitbart News story about Facebook’s blacklist of prominent conservatives including Paul Joseph Watson. Good.
In its report, which was presented to Facebook on May 3, Avaaz said it had identified 14 Italian networks on Facebook comprising 104 pages and six groups, with a total reach of 18.2 million followers.
This week, Facebook took punitive action against 23 pages in these networks, with a total of 2.46 million followers and 2.44 million interactions over the last three months.
Facebook has also reportedly “weakened” pages that spread content with allegedly false news, presumably making them less visible to Facebook users.
The technical motivation for the closing of the pages is linked to name changes: it is claimed they initially suggested themes that did not seem to allude to political parties or movements, but later changed the theme.
Among the closed pages are “We want the 5-star Movement in government”, which had 129,000 followers and almost 700,000 interactions in three months, “Beppe Grillo for President”, “Lega Salvini Sulmona” — which had 307,000 followers” — “Lega Salvini Premier Santa Teresa of Riva”, and “We Are 5 Stars.”
The most active page in support of the Lega party was among those closed, just as polls are showing that the Lega is currently the party with the most support among Italians for the upcoming elections.
Facebook’s efforts in Italy to influence the European elections are just the tip of the iceberg, Italian media noted.
According to the Italian daily La Repubblica, on May 2 Facebook opened a “war room” in Dublin devoted full time to the European electoral campaign, with 40 teams of engineers, scientists, researchers, threat specialists, and experts for each country.
There are 500 people working on the elections, with the assistance of 21 supposed “fact-checkers,” operating in 14 different languages.
Facebook Officially Bans White Nationalism
Facebook will begin banning “white nationalist or white separatist” content on its platform starting next week, the social media giant announced on Wednesday.
Facebook officials formally decided to ban “white nationalism” and “white separatism” on the Jewish-owned platform at a content moderation meeting on Tuesday, according to Motherboard.
The increasing censorship comes a year after Motherboard, a tech news outlet, reported that Facebook’s jewish-liberal content moderation ideology had allowed “white nationalism and separatism” on the platform, though it barred explicit “white supremacy”, while it was never true.
Facebook, in training documents for moderators last year, wrote that white nationalism “doesn’t seem to be always associated with racism (at least not explicitly),” incurring immediate backlash from civil rights groups and experts while actually they always banned any form of nationalism.
Brian Fishman, Facebook’s policy director of counterterrorism, told Motherboard this week that after speaking to a range of experts Facebook has concluded “the overlap between white nationalism, [white] separatism, and white supremacy is so extensive we really can’t make a meaningful distinction between them.”
