A brief statement of principle.
I’m going to postpone the post I had planned for today; instead, I want to make a statement about the ongoing Alt Right deplatforming, now manifested in a Twitter Purge of some on the Far-Right, including Taylor and Amren (as well as others, and one can expect the list to expand in coming days).
Readers of this blog know I have my differences with American Renaissance, and with some of the other “movement” precincts that have been, or will be, banned from social media. That’s not relevant here. Regardless of what I think of these individuals, organizations, and their work, I fully, and without reservation, support their rights of free speech, of free expression, and I unalterably oppose what has happened, what is happening.
Nitwits will of course start the song and dance that “Twitter is a private company, so they can do as they please here.” Two points. First, Twitter, Amazon, Google, PayPal and all the rest have become, basically, akin to public utilities and should be regulated as such. While I’m sure the SJWs think that Alt Righters should be deprived of electricity, heat, water, telephone service, medical care, etc. most reasonable people would disagree. In the digital age of global communication and commerce, the aforementioned digital entities are analogous to analog service utilities and thus the issue should not merely be one of private preference. Second, the hypocrisy here is breathless, in that bakers – private businesses! – are being forced to service homosexual marriages, and the same progressive have no problem with freedom of association being violated in that case (or in the case of race, for example – why can’t realtors or property owners discriminate based on race with respect who they sell to or rent to?).
I may also add that Twitter’s rationale that Amren promotes “violence” against “citizens” is ludicrous. Taylor denounced Spencer merely for Hailgate – how do a bunch of suit-and-tie HBDers threaten “violence” to anyone? All these Alt Right types are actually the victims of leftist violence, not the perpetrators of any sort of attacks.
The whole thing is a travesty.
But, this looks like the future. Despite my disagreements with Der Movement, I oppose it being censored. After all, from the broad perspective, I’m involved as well. At times like this, all the “heroes” of the “movement” need to put aside their petty feuds and figure out approaches to bypass dependence upon a System that is opposed to all of us on the Far-Right.
The money and resources are available for this, as I’ve written many times, and apparently, KMacD agrees (emphasis added):
We have to hope that racially conscious Whites will eventually create an infrastructure that begins to match the multicultural, anti-White infrastructure that is already in place. The money is certainly there and the situation on the ground can only convince more and more Whites that Rep. Mo Brooks is right — that there is indeed a war against them.
More money for real projects and less money for “frilly things” for mudsharks and less money for happy penguins to live the good life, and maybe we’ll be getting somewhere.
