Schiff-Head Threatens Social Media Companies

Adam Schiff's Creepy Eyes (@schiff_eyes) / Twitter

Would you buy a used country from this man?

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Mordor), last heard from whipping up fake impeachments and colluding to smear President Donald Trump, went on TV this past weekend to threaten the social media companies (

Said he, “If you’ll be responsible moderators of content–” censors, he means–“we will give you immunity.” Play ball with us, boys, or you don’t play ball at all.

Currently, a law called Sec. 230 gives the social media immunity from lawsuits over content written by others. Schiff wants to take that away unless they continue to censor conservatives and Republicans.

How did this nasty little bug-eyed monkey ever wind up in Congress? It’s a shame to us, to be governed by the likes of him.

To Schiff et al, anything that’s not strictly the party line is “hate” or “misinformation” and needs to be silenced by the government. The Democrat government, that is.

They’d wipe out our freedoms in an hour, if they could.

PayPal Backs Down

So they wanted to fine customers $2,500 a pop for “promoting misinformation”–or, in plain English, for being… wrong. By “wrong” we mean “PayPal doesn’t want to hear it.”

In just a day PayPal’s stock shares dropped 6%, a PayPal ex-president was slamming his former company for trying to stifle dissenting opinions, and PayPal scrambled to declare the controversial policy was just… “an error” ( They didn’t mean it–come on back, everybody.

I would imagine just about everybody is wrong about something every day–probably several times a day. Should you be fined for it–by a private business, no less? Can you imagine the screaming, the wailing, the gnashing of teeth we would have heard… if you could be fined for criticizing Donald Trump? But who ever gets shut down for promoting Far Left Crazy?

How long does Big Tech mean to maintain an adversarial relationship with half (or more–way more) of its customer base? How is this good business? “Buy Bigbee’s Bread–Unless You’re One Of Those Democrat Skunks Out There!” How does Big Tech get away with it? But of course no one would ever be allowed to insult Democrats.

Let’s just see how long it takes for PayPal to try it again.

NY to ‘Require’ Social Media to Rat Out ‘Hateful Conduct’

One way to create a police state is to turn every man into a a policeman–and, at the same time, a policeman’s prey. Always be ready to turn in your neighbor; and watch out he doesn’t turn you in first.

As our ruling class labors to turn America into a communist hell-hole, the new governor of New York (the old one, you may remember, had to resign in disgrace) has announced that from now on, social media providers will be “required (they love that word!) to monitor and report hateful conduct on their platforms.”

Gee, Kathy–what’s “hateful conduct?”

“Shut up!” she explained.

But that is the crux of it. Who gets to decide who’s “hateful”? And while we’re at it, are we talking about some absurd pretense by government of getting rid of a natural human emotion that’s part of who we are? Do they think they can change that? Just by having people report each other?

I lived in a police state for a time–my grade school. It was horrible. The kids who were, um, “safety patrols” had absolute power to pick on any kid they pleased: and the “school officials” always backed them up. There was one teacher who thought it was outrageous, but they got rid of him.

Wait’ll you get penalized because some malicious little twerp “reported” you for something that you didn’t do.

Hey, welcome to Kathy Hochul’s New York.

Too Crazy to Wait for Tomorrow!

Censoring social media over hunting photos is utterly absurd - Action  Namibia

This nooze item is too crazy to hold off for tomorrow.

Last year Texas passed a law to prevent social media companies from banning users based on their viewpoints. A district judge blocked it. But this week a federal appeals court reinstated the law.

Now for the crazy part. If you can buy this argument… you belong in collidge!

The social media companies claimed it was their free speech to ban other people’s free speech ( Like, how can they have free speech if they couldn’t silence speech with which they disagreed? (“My free speech depends on me silencing yours!”)

They put it this way: the law was “banning them from exercising editorial discretion over their private platforms.”

When I was a newspaper editor, there were letters to the editor, and rafts of press releases, that we didn’t publish for a variety of reasons. 1) We simply didn’t have the space to publish everything. 2) Some were so poorly written that we couldn’t figure out precisely what they were trying to say. 3) We didn’t publish crazy-talk.

What we didn’t do was systematically ban everyone whose point of view we disagreed with.

Big Tech has made a habit of banning conservative comment. They have also ruled that any recitation of facts that they don’t want to hear is “misinformation.” They can’t claim, as an actual newspaper can say, that they don’t have the space. My newspaper, The Bayshore Independent, published letters and press releases representing many different points of view, some of which we, the editors, strongly disagreed with. We sometimes interviewed people, and tried to treat them fairly, whose positions we strongly opposed.

“Yeahbut, yeahbut! You ban liberals from your blog!”

But I’ve made my standards clear. I publish no comments from those who personally insult other readers, attack me personally, use profanity, or just waste everybody’s time with a lot of inanity.

Big Tech abuses its editorial discretion. If they didn’t, the Texas law would never have been passed.

Nope, no extremists here!

Some of you have received these Facebook “extremist” warnings. Honk if you think “extremist” means Antifa or BLM.

Not to Facebook, it doesn’t.

Are You an “Extremist”?

And note the continuing efforts by leftids worldwide to train people to rat each other out. Do you know someone “at risk of becoming an extremist?”

Well, yeah, it happens that I do! Her name is Nancy Pelosi and she’s really gone off the deep end, I think she might be crazy. Isn’t it about time you guys carted her off?

They are out to erase our liberties, and they don’t mean maybe.

Help? Help?

My viewer numbers this evening are almost as bad as CNN’s.

You can say Big Tech isn’t doing this on purpose to a lot of Christian bloggers, but I won’t believe you. Yes, their algorithms are squeezing us hard. No, we’re not giving up; but these numbers are, quite frankly, discouraging.

They cut us off from our audience by making it hard to find us on the search engines. They’ve gotten very good at it.

So… Don’t be asking, “Whatever happened to so-and-so? Did he quit blogging?”

We’re not quitting. We’re getting stifled.

Notice: To All Christian Bloggers

The Real Story of Paul Revere's Ride - Biography

If Paul Revere were here, he’d be wondering why so many of us are still in bed.

Big Tech is trying to cut us off from our audience by shoving us all the way down to the bottom of the search engine rankings. They don’t dare ban us outright, it might blow up in their faces; but what they’ve been doing to silence us has been pretty effective so far.

We need to support each other! That’s why I make a point of displaying posts by other Christian bloggers on my page. We should all be doing that!

If you are a Christian blogger and would like to see one of your posts displayed here, please let me know! There must be hundreds of your blogs out there that I haven’t yet discovered.

I will charge nothing for this service, so the cost to you will be only a minute or two of your time to drop me a line–and however much time you devote to doing the same on your site.

We have to stick up for one another.

Return of the Big Words!

60 Godzilla and King Kong ideas | king kong, godzilla, movie monsters

See the shock! Hear the fear! Vicariously, of course.

How could I ever have been so pusillanimous even to think of dumbing down my blog–in a vain hope that if I stuck with a sixth-grade reading level, I’d get more readers. What? Did some perverse fragment of my psyche want to be thought of as a latitudinarian?

All right, all right, you’ve made your point. Now stop showing off.

The problem here is that Big Tech is subverting Christian bloggers. They’re afraid to just ban us all outright. The pushback just might be strong enough to push them into a tar pit. But if they play with the search engines and use algorithms that shove conservative thought down to the bottom of the lists, that’s just as good as banning us.

And they ain’t doin’ that to us because they don’t like big words.

So let that sixth-grade reading level be Tokyo, and multi-syllabic words Godzilla. I’ll use the words I want to use, I’ll enjoy and share the richness of the English language, and I’ll be horsewhipped if I do any different. [Cue in Godzilla music]

Way to go, Ifukube-San!

I’m On MeWe Now

Okay! Thanks to Weavingword, with a little boost from SlimJim, I am now on MeWe and I’ve just made my first post there. I have no idea where this is going to take me. I’m trying to rally Christian bloggers to fight the censors by reblogging or linking to each other’s posts, and I hope MeWe can be part of that.

What I should be seeing is referrals from MeWe. At least, that’s what I think I should be seeing. But it’s very easy for me to go wrong when dealing with computer stuff.

Soon I should be able to put all my blog posts on my MeWe page.

A big part of taking our country back has to be to break the Big Tech oligarchs’ stranglehold on social media.

And get those incredibly wasteful and harmful “colleges” and “universities” defunded!

Big Tech is suppressing speech by Christian and conservative bloggers. What to do?

Unite! Come together in mutal support. See, I’ve already started it.

Christian Bloggers, Unite!

If they thought they’d get away with just banning us all outright, they would’ve done it by now. That hesitation points to an achilles heel somewhere. They may be huge, wealthy, and powerful; but they are not invulnerable.

We can do this together! And what are we waiting for?
