Zuckerberg The Censor


Facebook claims it has ‘community standards’ enforced to remove hate speech. In part one of this two part cartoon series, I proved that was a lie. To refresh memories, see the screen shot image at the end of this post as another example. Bear in mind that a Facebook spokesman recently said this:

“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology,” 

What I reported was clearly a ‘hate speech’ page, even though they were using my cartoons which they vandalized to express their quest for murder. Facebook, as usual, said it did not violate their community standards. As long as conservatives are made to look like monsters, Zuckerberg seemed to be A-OK with it.

Now the CEO of Facebook is blatantly censoring conservative people such as Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Laura Loomer. Facebook will not even allow on ‘his’ site praise for these people by others. Zuckerberg wants them digitally erased from history. He labeled them ‘dangerous individuals.’ The lefty media teamed up and parroted the defamation, calling them ‘controversial figures of hate.’ It’s all ridiculous, but at least Facebook’s lies have been exposed. We know how the Deep State, including the CIA and Silicon Valley, consider those of us who want to preserve our Republic to be ‘figures of hate.’

Silicon Valley companies will increasingly allow conservatives to be banned as we approach the 2020 election. What’s next, will they call us ‘terrorists?’ Will we be sent to gulags? Facebook now has around 2.7 billion users. People depend on it to easily connect with friends and family. It has become a public utility of sorts and it all may have started with CIA funding.

Before you call me a conspiracy theorist, consider that the CIA has for a long time been funding Silicon Valley tech companies that interest them. They created a venture capital firm called “In-Q-Tel,” and that firm helped fund many up-and-comers including Peter Thiel’s “Palantir,” which was an all-encompassing means to gather data on everything. Although Thiel is a self-professed ‘libertarian,’ his Palantir destroys privacy. It is literally the Eye of Sauron. In the hands of the CIA, it would make that institution that much more powerful and tyrannical. Thiel may have also recommended funding for Facebook. He got in early and made a large part of his billions through Facebook stock. The CIA must love their honeypot that is Facebook. After all, billions of people voluntarily release their personal details. Zuckerberg loves it because he sells the dumb effers' data to advertisers. Facebook users are also the product. Zuckerberg is the pefect nerdy front man for the CIA. As a bonus, Zuckerberg spent some time at Harvard, which is a known and very corrupt pipeline feeding the Deep State Swamp.

Now the billionaire tyrant wants to introduce a social credit system that rewards users for politically correct behavior on his platform. It sounds suspiciously similar to China’s system, designed to keep their citizens in line. Everyone there wants a high rating. Those with low ratings are unable to travel, get a loan, or even get a job. Zuckerberg wants that for Americans.  

The CIA commands way too much power and control and they always want more. I doubt many taxpayers know they are funding their own enslavement by allowing a ‘security’ agency to fund Silicon Valley companies, who now control most of our digital free speech. The CIA seems to love billionaires like Zuckerberg, Soros, and Bezos, who are working together to silence patriots who value freedom.

My Doomed Attempt to Converse With Young Socialists

https://www.apnews.com/7825d0df3fda4799a78da92b9e969cdc

Update: Facebook kicked off Alex Jones and many others today--and defamed them for being bigots, racists, and purveyors of 'hate speech.' That's richly ironic since FB for years allowed the theft of my name and face to spread hate and terrorist threats. BUT--since I'm conservative, it's just funny, right Zuckerberg? I didn't get the boot today but I have been temporarily banned for 'hate speech.' What I said wasn't hateful at all--but functionaries at Zuckerberg's CIA-created platform, they get to make up whatever they want. Zuckerberg is the hater--he hates our First Amendment. He's a traitor and a twerp.

--------

I noticed a page on Facebook set up to bash me and my cartoons. This seemed a little strange. If they hated my cartoons so much, they could simply not look at them. Regardless, the page was a great improvement over what I had to deal with about five years ago. In 2014, Facebook allowed 10 instances of pages using my name and face along with vandalized cartoons—all designed to destroy my reputation. The pages had a lot of followers—and they received far more traffic than our own website was receiving at the time. The pages were peppered with quotes attributed to me calling for the murder of Jews, African Americans, gay people, and so on. Facebook would not immediately remove the pages even though they were calling for violence and murder. It would take weeks of complaints from me to get a page removed, only for another page to spring up and take its place. In 2014 alone I spent over 100 man hours trying to remove troll material and impersonators from Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere. It took years of struggle to finally regain my own identity and make people realize I was not the Nazi doppleganger the trolls had created.

Still, I was a little surprised to come across a page set up to allow left-leaning and mostly young socialists to attack and make fun of my cartoons. That’s fine—at least the cartoons got under their skin enough to do such a thing. The trolls have long been defeated by us, and at this point there’s no such thing as bad publicity. The moderator there said no conservatives would be allowed except temporarily—so that he would have time to encourage his socialist members to laugh and crudely insult them—until they’re driven off the page. 

I asked the moderator if I could join the board and to my surprise he allowed it and even asked if I would do an impromptu AMA. I agreed. The AMA lasted well over an hour and I furiously typed answers to most questions thrown my way. Of course, there were some gross insults tossed my way too, but I expected that. I was pleasantly surprised because even though they disagreed with nearly all of my cartoons, most were polite and happy to have a chance to exchange words with the cartoon creator—me.

This was short-lived. Soon the board was getting chastised for ‘sucking up to Ben just because he’s a celebrity.’ I don’t consider myself or care about celebrity, but shortly thereafter reasoned debate and decorum were out the window. I continued to reply to the AMA threads as well as comment on new cartoons that were posted. The trolls multiplied and began to get more aggressive. They kept calling me a ‘coward' for not ‘debating’ them, but I didn’t consider vile insults to be debate. I was told that when the socialists took over I would be sent to a gulag and forced to draw pro-Marx cartoons. Socialism doesn’t work. It always devolves into naked tyranny that forces people to work. They were already expressing this mindset in their comments.

Bear in mind that I expected to be called names and I was—very frequently. Many expressed their sadistic delight at having a chance to ‘shit’ on me. That’s how they put it. Everything posted by me was met with hearty laughter. I was repeatedly called a ‘coward’ for avoiding answers to questions that I was in no way avoiding. The once polite pack of mostly young people seemed to smell blood in the water and went after me like piranhas. I was told what I was doing was a ‘crime’ and that I lacked humanity. Dehumanizing someone by calling them names such as ‘racist’ or ‘bigot’ or ‘Nazi’ is what allows Antifa to commit violence. 

The so-called debate devolved into even worse name-calling spree at about the 7th grade level. Without wit or subtly, the pathetic hatred spewed by many of the lost chuckleheads was sad. No wonder Alexandria Ocasio Cortez was elected, I thought. She’s one of them. Their behavior was similar to the new Congresswoman. That is, they seemed very certain and completely confident that they had truth in their corner. In reality they epitomized the militant ignorance of socialism. 

Anyway, eventually I was insulted about my sagging face. So what? I’m an old man—what can be done? Tina was insulted for her looks, too. I tried to tell the young chuckleheads that old age will happen to them, too--and far sooner than they imagine, but it was no use. None of the insults bothered me. After receiving endless hate mail and getting trolled for years on end, I’m now well-calloused to insult, but the participants were all acting on a very low-level of consciousness and it became pointless and sad. It was time to for me to leave, and so I did. Shortly thereafter the moderator accused me of being ‘afraid of debate.’ The truth is he encouraged his socialist members to laugh and crudely insult me--until I was driven off the page. 

I’m hoping I didn’t get a slice of what most young people are about these days. They all seemed to think socialism is the way to go. If they have their way in the future, America as we know it will be gone.

Additional: One of the twerps there said I need to answer for my cartoon 'crimes.' I jokingly said, "Call 911! Call the FBI! Arrest me now!" For that, Facebook sent me a warning that I was engaging in hate speech.

Additional update: The young socialists hate free speech. They continue to attack me and now Facebook gave me a three-day ban. Bear in mind that I don't like hate speech, but I definite it differently. I consider hate speech to be libel, defamation, death threats, and terrorist threats. NOPE! It now includes making an offhand remark or joke that hurts the feelings of someone, whether intentionally or unintentionally. Once upon a time Facebook allowed pages to be created by trolls. They used my name, my face, and vandalized cartoons while calling for murder--the murder of gays, blacks, jews, and so on. Facebook refused to remove these pages time after time. There were 10 instances in 2014. In one case I had to enlist the help of lawyers to get them removed. So now we know--Facebook hates conservatives and libertarians. We can talk about the weather or the food we like (promptly sold to advertisers) but we're not allowed to talk about social issues or politics--that's 'hate speech.' It will get worse for Trump supporters as the 2020 election approaches.

Go to Hell, socialist trolls. Go to Hell, Zuckerberg. You're a traitor to the First Amendment.

Roger Stone's Arrest



Last week Roger Stone was awakened by over one dozen FBI agents who conducted a pre-dawn raid at his home in Florida. Mueller’s goons wore flak jackets and sported weapons design to intimidate. Beria and Stalin would have been proud.

There was no reason for a raid of that scope. Stone is a peaceful man who was cooperating with Mueller’s investigation. Stone has done nothing wrong and there was no collaboration with Russia. He’s stands accused of invented ‘process’ crimes. So why was he treated like a narco kingpin or arch villain?

This excessive abuse of government power by jackbooted thugs were condemned by Democrats. Oh wait…no….they heartily applauded such action. HBO comedian Bill Maher said Stone was an upper echelon bad guy who deserved it because he’s so unlikeable. He’s expecting them to arrest President Trump next, whom he constantly calls a ‘traitor.’ Maher continues to cling to the Russian collusion lie and jokes that Trump is working for Putin. The dossier used by the FBI to conduct surveillance on Trump and his campaign was based on that lie, which was bought and paid for by Hillary. Hillary is an arch criminal and traitor who should be in jail. She lied to the FBI, destroyed evidence, sold her country out for money (Uranium One) and dozens of other crimes I won’t get into here. Suffice it to say she’s exacting revenge on the ‘deplorables’ who helped get Trump elected. Roger Stone efficaciously made that happen.

A big fuss and show had to be made over Stone’s arrest. The rogue criminal cartel known as the Deep State must make something out of literally nothing to justify the arrest of more targets—their final target being Trump himself. This is a coup being carried out by the Deep State and its special prosecutor is especially corrupt–and without oversight or accountability. Mueller has an unlimited budget while being responsible to no one. He does what he wants and sends his Gestapo out to get the job done. No, I won’t say how great some FBI agents are and that they’re good people and ‘patriots.’ They are going along with an unconstitutional take down down of a lawfully-elected president. The FBI and CIA need to be broken up. They have accrued way too much power over the decades. They all share in the blame, as does the traitorous Deep State media arms. CIA-NN in particular. Their tipoff to make the show more scary was absolutely disgusting. The government watchdogs who were once supposed to be journalists have become lying, filthy rats in charge of brainwashing citizens.

We are hurtling toward very dark times if we don’t stop this. First they came for Stone—eventually they’ll get to all of us deplorables for invented crimes. They already have enough illegally obtained info on us all. They have our email, browsing history, phone calls, purchases, financial and medical records—everything. It’s all stored up and ready to use against us for some concocted process crime. They will then send us to prison or gulags. What’s next, a shot in the back of the head? Ha ha, very funny, right Bill Maher? I’m sure many Democrats would applaud that, too. Anything to further their cause of communism.

Wake up, Trump! As Alex Jones said, it’s time to go on offense!
