Microsoft Threatens to Shut Down Gab After Anti-Semitic Posts by User

Looks like even unbiased platforms are being targeted. Time to develop their own web hosting platforms now also.

Quote:Microsoft Azure, the web hosting provider for Gab, has given the company 48 hours to delete some anti-Semitic posts or face a Big Tech shut-down. Gab is a Twitter alternative that claims to protect the right to free speech. It's not a very good alternative, as the numbers just aren't there to keep it interesting. Most of the time it's just righties and ultra-righties fighting amongst themselves. But Gab's claim to fame is that they won't kick people off for having unpopular views or engaging in insult trading that morons refer to as "hate speech." For some, that's a worthwhile promise.

It should be noted that in America the term "hate speech" is not a legal one, at least according to the Supreme Court. So-called "hate speech," be it racist, bigoted, anti-Semitic or just plain mean, is protected as reaffirmed in Matal v. Tam in 2017. "Speech that demeans on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, or any other similar ground is hateful; but the proudest boast of our free speech jurisprudence is that we protect the freedom to express 'the thought that we hate,'" wrote Justice Alito.

It is, therefore, maddening when tech companies attempt to infringe on the public's right to speak (acting like the government) based on a specious "hate speech" claim, which is whatever they say it is because there is no legal definition. In America, speech that is obscene or incites violence is the only speech that is unprotected

Timing of this is interesting. This is about censoring Patrick Little who's been running for office with the slogan "Name the Jew".

My guess is some violence will break out tomorrow, and Microsoft will use it as an opportunity to shut down Gab, in the same way that Charlottesville last year was used as an opportunity to pressure Cloudflare (and GoDaddy) to disconnect The Daily Stormer.

You heard it here first.

Good argument can be made to shut down daily stormer as they were preaching extreme hate and arguably they were pushing for racial violence.

in fact YOUTUBE PUSHES A LOT OF HATE VIDEOS on both sides of the spectrum

There are some people that think conspiracy theories should be censored on Youtube. There was a long thread about it on the OG.

If they start going after CTers how long before they go after smaller sites like this one even?

Well no shit the OG, that censors critical thinkers and skeptics and historical researchers/revionists, would think that is a good idea. That is why their forum is slowly dying.

That place has become freeze and ban happy. You can't really speak freely there any more because it's controlled by really sensitive mods and admins with an agenda.

Basically what happened is Tiresias, myself and a handful of others wore down the uber-leftist Zionists over there, and rather than just let us give us our opinion, they decided that would be too convincing, so better to just ban the lot. I do not even browse there any more.

what's funny is.. these people waited until they cornered the entire market.. then they started doing this

if they started saying HEY YOU CAN'T DO THIS back in the day... then people would have created their own platforms

Not only do free sites need their own web sites, but based on this thread it looks like you can even get banned on your web hosting platform. To be truly free and open websites will need to control the whole thing from server to customer experience where nobody can ban you. Of course the next wave of suppression will be to block by IP address. Once they get the right wing websites off on their own platforms they can then just block their IP address and make them invisible again.

they are playing a dangerous game because the cat is out of the bag now. the young people are very sensitive to censorship.

they can sniff out fear from the establishment.. and that anti-establishment mindset is well entrenched among american youths

they've done the big data analytics. young ppl are turning more conservative.
