Freedom of screech

"JTA: "Progressives Have a New Definition of Racism: ‘Prejudice Plus Power’. What Does That Mean for Jews?"" (Sailer).  (((Progressives))) out on a limb, sawing away.

"Bannon on the Age of Milken" (Sailer).  The big quote from Bannon:
"Go back and look at the postwar period. These companies had profit margins, and they traded on Wall Street, but there wasn’t this maniacal focus on the financialization. Companies forgot about the social fabric, forgot about your workers. Everything became commoditized. That led to the financial crisis of 2008. It all came home to roost. …
There’s a direct correlation between the factories that left, the billets and jobs that left with them, and the opioid crisis. This is what the Democrats miss: Tariffs are more than economics, it’s about dignity and self-worth.
… Here’s the concept of right-wing populism. If the ’80s and the way we got in this debacle was this radical idea of maximization of shareholder value, here’s what right-wing populism stands for. It’s very simple concept. We’re going to maximize the value of citizenship. We’re going to maximize citizenship value. If you’re an American citizen, you get a special deal. I don’t care if you’re Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, black, white, red, pink, green. I do not care. If you’re an American citizen, you get a better deal.
Here’s how many H-1B visas I want: none. Until we get Baltimore, Detroit, and St. Louis with, you know, youth unemployment down to zero, and people making high value-added jobs, I don’t need any foreigners. And I’m not a racist. What I want is our citizens to get the jobs. Right now illegal immigration is used as nothing more than a scam to suppress workers’ wages.
All the economic textbooks you’ve got before 2008? Throw them out. They’re totally irrelevant.
Your generation, the readers of New York Magazine, you’re nothing but 18th-century Russian serfs. You’re better fed, and you’re better dressed, and you’re better educated. But you don’t own anything. And you’re not going to own anything.
The state capitalism of the big technology companies has taken away your digital, your data sovereignty. They’ve totally taken it away. You generate intellectual property all day long, and they don’t pay you for it. They take it for free, they monetize at huge margins.
Q. But what right-wing populism does is break that. You agree with that?
Bannon: There are parts of it that are not exclusive to right-wing populism —
But on the left, your problem is that identity politics is stronger than your populism, and that’s why you can’t lift out of it. You can’t be a populist and buy into the globalist system — and the globalist system is open borders. It’s the Kochs. It’s Wall Street. The Kochs are the biggest open-borders guys in the world. The libertarian Cato Institute, look how radical they are. Cato hates my guts much more than the left.
In 2013, I sit there with Jeff Sessions at the Breitbart Embassy, and we’re looking at the 2012 election. A lawyer named Sean Trende did a three-part analysis of the working class on RealClearPolitics. About how the working class did not come out to vote for Romney. And I told Sessions, I said, “That’s the path to victory right there."
"'Canada is the world's worst oppressor of women': Saudi Arabia's bizarre propaganda campaign"(Hopper).  "Saudi Arabia Crucifies Man In Mecca While Decrying Canada's Human Rights" (Durden).  "Yemen: 50 Dead (Mostly Children) as Great Ally Saudi Bombs Random Bus in Yemen" (Anglin). ("Guided Bomb Fragments At Site Of Yemen Bus Airstrike Trace Back To Lockheed Martin" (Durden)).  I always thought if you typed the words 'Saudi moral authority' your computer would blow up:  "Yemen War Challenges Saudi Moral Authority" (Dorsey).

"US complicit in air strike that murdered dozens of children in Yemen":
"At the same Pentagon press conference, Votel suggested that the resistance of the Houthis and the bulk of the Yemeni population to Saudi Arabia’s attempt to reinstall the puppet regime of President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi is being directed by Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, the leader of Iran’s Quds Force of Iranian Revolutionary Guards."
"BBC bows to pressure from Israel and changes Gaza headline".  Looks like somebody in the censorship department fell asleep at the switch.  Also:  "‘NYT’ has run nonstop defenses by its columnists of killing protesters in Gaza" (Weiss/Johnson).  What's the point of owning/controlling all the (((media))) if you aren't going to abuse your power for your supremacist ends?

"Gas-Chamber Blues Revisited: More on the “Stain and Shame” of Labour Anti-Semitism" (Langdon).  Freedom of screech.  A lot of people are getting an education on how much of their future well being a tiny group is willing to risk for their own selfish supremacist goals.

Warner is the ringleader of the simultaneous platform attack on free speech:  "Scoop: 20 ways Democrats could crack down on Big Tech" (McCabe).

"I Was Banned for Life From Twitter" (Van Buren). Also:  "What if a #MAGA Guy Ate Twitter’s Face?"

Lots of players in the Censorship-Industrial Complex named here:  "‘Hyperactive French Russophiles’ study lands Soros-backed DisinfoLab in Twitter data abuse scandal" (Malic).

"YouTube Is Censoring New 1.5-Hour Long Video “Russian Military Campaign in Syria 2015-2018”" (SouthFront).

"Venezuelanalysis: Official Statement on Facebook's Removal of Our Page".  Tweet.

"Venezuela Assassination Attempt: Maduro Survives But Journalism Doesn’t" (Vaz).

"Election Results Could Be Good for Pakistan, Bad for US" (The Graham Fuller, of, amongst other things, Boston Bombing fame).

Innocent mistakes were made, Goyim, and we'd like you to see our secret report about it:  "Secret Israeli Report Reveals Armed Drone Killed Four Boys Playing on Gaza Beach in 2014" (Mackey).  Pierre has a two-for-one deal:  "PayPal closes pro-Palestinian group’s account in collusion with Israeli government" (Shaoul). "Meet Wikipedia Founder Jimmy Wales: Ex Porn Peddler Paid by ‘Israel’ to Spread Zionist Propaganda".  "Wikipedia founder Wales sides with Israel against Gaza, suggests Corbyn is ‘antisemite’" (Weiss).  Shekels, just shekels.

"Israel celebrates 40 years of illegal settlement".

"US-German tensions rise as construction starts on Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline" (Tyler).

"The World's Largest Cybercrime Empire" (Kimani).  The Ukrainians.  Do you think they might be Khazars?  Anyway:  "Neocons Concoct Threat of “Iranian Hackers” to Justify Preemptive “Counterattack” Against Iran" (Webb; but see this, a confused and incoherent mess).
