Now Vimeo Also Deletes James O'Keefe's Journalism

There's no coordination here between a monopolist company and other semi-monopolies.

No, none at all.

Except for the fact that they share many of the same personnel and keep in frequent contact to make joint decisions which they then all impose together.

33 Propaganda is totally useless and has absolutely no effect on the tastes or preferences of the public. Trust us, this is a nothingburger, a meal only for paranoiacs.

47 Coordinated messaging cannot shift opinion. Trust us, it's impossible, and only crazies would suggest otherwise.

YouTube deplatforms people for exposing the bias and targeting of Pinterest, and YouTube and Vimeo both deplatform people for exposing the bias and targeting of Google.

And more:

Within 2 days of Carlos Maza calling for The_Donald Subreddit to be censored Reddit has taken action and quarantined one of the largest Pro-Trump forums.

Meanwhile, commenters say that established monopoly platforms are banning links to social media upstart BitChute, and earlier came reports that the Apple store was banning Parler, the competitor to Twitter, unless Parler imposes all of the same censorship policies as Twitter (and Apple).


This is how Robust and Free Capitalist Competition is supposed to work, David French assures me. An tiny number of coordinated monopoly concerns -- ten or so in total-- all offering products with the same speech restrictions and political biases.

And all competitors to this Ruling Caste Order squelched and stamped out by their other conspirators, like Mastercard and Patreon.


The nation's entire political discussion controlled -- controlled -- by a small group of people who all know each other and are all on the far left and in fact all live a mile from each other in the richest suburbs of San Francisco.

A bunch of soybottomed hard-left oligarchs and venture socialists having a hippie high tea meeting and deciding who the next president will be, and who has the right to speak in the public square.

Isn't that what America's really all about?



Boy, it's too bad that the country didn't vote in reaction to this in 2016 and install a Republican president and Republican Congress to do something about the increasingly censoriousness and controlling nature of the tech monopolies.

But the important thing will always be blowing Kochs.


As Tucker Carlson said last night, people vote for politicians to protect them from unfair practices aimed at harming them -- but the Republicans affirmatively aid those seeking to harm Republican voters.

The Republican Party will deserve it when they wake up one day and discover that their former voters have deserted them.



Here's an older editorial from Carlson.

Tim Pool on Carlos Masa demanding that Reddit censor The Donald subreddit, and Reddit, of course, eagerly agreeing:

The knitting site -- KNITTING SITE!!! -- has forbidden any advocacy for Trump or anyone but NeverTrump Republicans.

Of course, they're still allowing -- encouraging -- anti-Trump and leftwing agitation.

I wouldn't say that the knitting site is in the same class as the others; that's more of a small blog that isn't a monopoly (or a market-dominating company).

Update: Commenters disagree, noting that Ravelry is a monopoly in the small market of pattern-vending:

Ravelry is in pretty much a monopoly position for people selling patterns. As someone noted above, it has 8 million users.

But they're all joining together on this.

And where is Bitch McConnell?

Where, for that matter, is Trump?

Breaking just now: Trump has called for a censorship summit, for whatever that's worth. He notes that "we" might sue Google and Facebook, I guess through the FTC.

A researcher -- and Hillary Clinton supporter -- named Dr. Robert Epstein ran double-blind large-scale experiments to determine how much search bias could affect an election -- stuff like eliminating all negative search results for Hillary Clinton, while permitting the results for Trump to be stocked with negative results.

In experiments with more than 10,000 people, he found that 20% of undecided voters will switch their votes to the Google-favored candidate based on such manipulation.

In that latest Tucker Carlson appearances, he says the number of voters who will be flipped by Google's tactics is 15 million.

He found -- based on controlled experiments involving over 10,000 subjects in total -- that undecided voters who were 50/50 to vote on either major candidate would shift to a 90-10 split when the search result manipulation was applied. (That is, suppressing all negative returns or search suggestions for the candidates Google and Facebook favor.)

People who keep relying on their ideology, untainted by evidence, facts, or reading into the subject, should explain why their simplistic dogma should trump the facts and research.

They should also be made to explain why they compare about the minor media manipulating public opinion -- CNN, newspapers, etc. -- but don't think the real current Major media -- Google and Facebook and twitter -- are also capable of such manipulation, despite being ten times the size and reach of the old, shriveled, dying media.
