Is the Internet Dead? The Take down of GAB, Free Speech, and Alternative Media


Over the past week, it’s grow to be fairly clear that the free and open web is lifeless; sadly, this is because of a handful of so-called “American” firms who despise and detest the freedoms this nation was based upon.

Yesterday, GAB, another social media platform constructed upon giving folks their first modification rights to talk freely, was systematically focused and brought down by the corporations that run the infrastructure of the web.

This was all accomplished as a result of a single consumer on their platform allegedly dedicated a horrific act of violence towards a Jewish synagogue. So to avoid wasting the world from hatred and bigotry, the web elites determined free-speech might not be allowed on the web and set their crosshairs on GAB.

GAB takedown

PayPal and Stripe, two of the corporate’s cost suppliers, dropped them making it unimaginable for GAB to course of funds. Then, Joyent, their web server supplier, suspended theirs servers making their web site and social media platform unavailable on the web.

“When a website is permitting the perpetuation of hate, violence or discriminatory intolerance, we take fast and decisive motion,” mentioned PayPal spokesman Justin Higgs in an announcement.

However the web elites weren’t accomplished. After GAB refused to be intimidated and began wanting into different internet hosting choices — they had been already thrown of Microsoft’s Azure servers week’s earlier — GoDaddy, the positioning’s area registrar, which offers the Gab.com handle, gave GAB 24 hours discover of its suspension, threatening to remove their .com title.

“We’ve been systematically no-platformed by App Shops, a number of internet hosting suppliers, and a number of other cost processors,” GAB mentioned in an announcement posted to its website. “We’ve been smeared by the mainstream media for defending free expression and particular person liberty for all folks and for working with regulation enforcement to make sure that justice is served for the horrible atrocity dedicated in Pittsburgh.”

Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety

This has nothing to do with security; it’s about killing the web and shredding the primary modification. In any case, the alleged shooter in Pittsburgh had a profile on Fb and Twitter, but no one goes after them. Hell, the alleged “hoax bomber” solely used Twitter to unfold his ideology;

The New York Instances discovered quite a few cases of the so-called “MAGA Bomber” Cesar Sayoc sending Twitter threats. And at the least one individual reported these threats to the corporate however was ignored.

Oddly, no one is threatening to chop off Twitters skill to perform as an organization?

In the meantime on Twitter and Fb

It’s value stating that Twitter and Fb each host terrorists equivalent to Hamas on their platforms and each refuse to take motion. In truth, YouTube, Twitter, and Fb have even allowed their providers for use to stream lively shooters, suicides and pedophile content material.

Right here is only a small pattern of what Twitter permits: ( I assume hate and threats towards some pores and skin colours is suitable on Twitter)

Twitter Posts

For years, this site has warned this was coming.

We went via our personal blacklisting years ago, and fairly frankly the positioning actually by no means recovered. We had been suspended from Facebook, shadow-banned on Twitter, demonetized by Google, and had our name stolen and our content copied by a large media conglomerate. A number of within the so-called different media wrote about it; most unconsidered it both fearing it will occur to them subsequent, or as a result of they had been a part of the issue — Wolves in Sheep’s Clothes!

Welcome to America; A land now run by a handful of firms who’ve efficiently killed the First Modification!

Essentially the most ironic, and albeit unhappy a part of this entire factor was summed up by GAB in a single Tweet…

Gab’s official assertion:

GAB Banned

Gab has spent the previous 48 hours proudly working with the DOJ and FBI to convey justice to an alleged terrorist. Due to the info we offered, they now have loads of proof for his or her case. Within the midst of this Gab has been no-platformed by important web infrastructure suppliers at each stage. We’re essentially the most censored, smeared, and no-platformed startup in historical past, which implies we’re a menace to the media and to the Silicon Valley Oligarchy.

Gab isn’t going anyplace.

It doesn’t matter what you write. It doesn’t matter what the sophist speaking heads say on TV. It doesn’t matter what verified nobodies say on Twitter. We’ve loads of choices, sources, and assist. We’ll train each attainable avenue to maintain Gab on-line and defend free speech and particular person liberty for all folks.

You might have all simply made Gab a nationally acknowledged model as the house of free speech on-line at a time when Silicon Valley is stifling political speech they disagree with to intervene in a US election.

The web just isn’t actuality. TV just isn’t actuality. 80% of regular on a regular basis folks agree with Gab and assist free expression and liberty. The net outrage mob and mainstream media spin machine are the minority opinion. Persons are waking up, so please maintain pointing the finger at a social community as an alternative of pointing the finger on the alleged shooter who holds sole accountability for his actions.

No-platform us all you need. Ban us all you need. Smear us all you need.

You possibly can’t cease an concept.

As we transition to a brand new internet hosting supplier Gab will likely be inaccessible for a time frame. We’re working across the clock to get Gab.com again on-line. Thanks and keep in mind to talk freely.

Andrew Torba, CEO Gab.com
