Joe Rogan: Big Data’s Censorship Increases Risk Of Civil War (Video)

Jordan Peterson and Bret Weinstein Agree

Political censorship from technology companies such as Google, Facebook, Twitter and other internet-based technology companies increases the likelihood of political polarization and politically-motivated criminal violence, said professors Bret Weinstein and Jordan Peterson during a Friday-published appearance on Joe Rogan’s eponymous show.

Rogan offered his iteration of the phrase “sunlight is the best disinfectant” in defense of free speech, expression, and debate. Censorship — formal and informal — prohibits open dismantling of immoral and destructive ideas:

The importance of having uncensored discussions [is that] when you have forbidden discussions, you energize those topics, and the topics grow in the absence of discussion; in the absence of being picked apart and analyzing for what their core components are.

“Open communication and debate [and] analyzing all the components of [an] issue completely objectively” is the best solution to combating immoral and destructive ideas, said Rogan.

Pamela Geller: The Coming Civil War

The left has been at war against America for decades. The right represents those of us who favor individual freedom and capitalism — and the left are those who want government controls and socialism.

Political violence became an essential and successful means of leftist warfare in the 60’s, the decade of destruction. The success of the violent “student rebellion” in 1964 and the so-called Free Speech Movement has set the table for the left’s warmongering and treason. It was clear from the outset that the “student revolution” violently ushered in at Berkeley in the mid-sixties would come to this. The left is evil, and they mean to destroy our way of life, our freedom and us. It took decades to norm their anti-Americanism, their hatred of freedom and individual rights, but they have reached their tipping point. And the long beaten and battered among us have had it.

Ayn Rand explained why the left is seeking nothing less than the breakdown of American society:

The attempt to solve social problems by means of physical force is what a civilized society is established to prevent. The advocates of mass civil disobedience admit that their purpose is intimidation. A society that tolerates intimidation as a means of settling disputes—the physical intimidation of some men or groups by others—loses its moral right to exist as a social system, and its collapse does not take long to follow.

Politically, mass civil disobedience is appropriate only as a prelude to civil war—as the declaration of a total break with a country’s political institutions.

When the Civil War Came to San Diego

As for San Diego County, in 1859, by a vote of 207-24, voters overwhelmingly supported the idea of splitting the state into two, with Southern California becoming the Territory of Colorado. There was talk that the new territory might cozy up to the slave states, but the war snipped the plan in the bud.

Union troops were more than a little suspicious when they ran into a group of 16 men traveling east through San Diego’s backcountry in the early days of the Civil War. The men declared they were peaceful miners, but they each packed a rifle and a pair of revolvers instead of shovels and picks.

Most of them were Southerners, and their leader, a red-headed Confederate sympathizer named Dan Showalter, was famous. A few months earlier, this “fascinating and baffling character” had fired a bullet straight into a fellow state legislator’s mouth at 40 paces. Now, he was heading east to slaughter Yankees.

This confrontation — near the landmark Dudley’s Bakery in Santa Ysabel where modern-day drivers grab loaves of date nut raisin bread on the way home from Julian — wasn’t destined to be bloody. Showalter’s gory end was still to come, just not that day in 1861. But the story of his collusion with the enemy shines a light on how the Golden State was mightily divided over the Civil War, so much so that the Union sought to derail the “underground railroad” of Confederate sympathizers heading east to fight the North.

The Next American Revolution | Nicholas J. Fuentes and Stefan Molyneux (Video)

While the conservative establishment remains hostile to those who have supported President Donald Trump and his America First platform – a new generation of thought leaders are quickly emerging. Stefan Molyneux is joined by Nicholas J. Fuentes to discuss his personal intellectual evolution, the challenges of multiculturalism, why decades of communism seems to be the inoculation against mass migration, winning the culture wars, misconceptions about liberty, the changing mentality of the next generation, the importance of perseverance and much much more!

Pat Buchanan: We’re ‘On the Verge of an Uncivil Conflict in This Country’ (Video)

He then added, “Here in [Washington D.C.] itself we have a civil war inside the government of the United States where the deep state, the permanent regime is leaking criminally to the media to bring down the president of the United States who was elected by the American people.”

Saturday on Fox News Channel’s “Watters’ World,” conservative political commentator Pat Buchanan said that the country is “on the verge” of what he described as an “uncivil conflict.”

Buchanan told host Jesse Watters that there is a “clear objective” among political elites and the media to take down President Donald Trump and reverse the 2016 presidential election.

“We have real violence going on in many of these demonstrations against Trumpites who are out demonstrating on the weekend. You have battles. You have brawls. You have fistfights. Cops are having trouble breaking them up. We really are on the verge, I think, of an uncivil conflict in this country and here in Washington, D.C. there is a clear objective of corporate elites, or rather the political elites and the media, basically, to bring down the president of the United States and reverse the election of 2016,” Buchanan explained.

Will the Second Civil War Turn Violent?

It’s beginning to dawn on many Americans that mayors, police chiefs and college presidents have no interest in stopping this violence. Left-wing officials sympathize with the lawbreakers, and the police, who rarely sympathize with thugs of any ideology, are ordered to do nothing by emasculated police chiefs. Consequently, given the abdication by all these authorities of their role to protect the public, some members of the public will inevitably decide that they will protect themselves and others.

In a recent column, I made the case that Americans are fighting the Second Civil War. The deep chasm that has opened up between the left — not liberals, the left — and the rest of the country is so wide and so unbridgeable that there is no other way to describe what is happening. But I noted that at least thus far, unlike the First Civil War, this war is not violent.

Unfortunately, there is now reason to believe that violence is coming. In fact, it’s already here. But as of now, it’s only coming from one direction.

Left-wing thugs engage in violence and threats of violence with utter impunity. They shut down speakers at colleges; block highways, bridges and airport terminals; take over college buildings and offices; occupy state capitals; and terrorize individuals at their homes.

In order to understand why more violence may be coming, it is essential to understand that left-wing mobs are almost never stopped, arrested or punished. Colleges do nothing to stop them, and civil authorities do nothing to stop them on campuses or anywhere else. Police are reduced to spectators as they watch left-wing gangs loot stores, smash business and car windows, and even take over state capitals (as in Madison, Wisconsin).

Fed-up French voters warn ‘CIVIL WAR’ could be needed to liberate nation from EU (Video)

French voters who are backing Marine Le Pen have said a civil war may be necessary to liberate the country from the control of Brussels.

Voters who are angry at the political establishment have said a civil war is on the cards if France does not break away from the European Union.

The French presidential election is fast approaching, with two candidates advocating a Frexit gaining the most ground in recent days.

Both left-wing Jean-Luc Melenchon and right-wing Marine Le Pen are pushing for a campaign to leave the European project.

Several voters in the historically industrial town of Amiens told German channel DW that they were backing Marine Le Pen so she could take back control over their borders.

One young worker said he was voting for the Front National because they were the only party with answers to France’s growing unemployment, which sits just over 10 per cent.

But, he warned, the country may need to fight on the streets for their freedom from the European Union.

The young man told DW: “Leaving the euro will hurt at first and make a lot of people very angry. It could even trigger a civil war to get there.

The Civil War is Here

The left doesn’t want to secede. It wants to rule.

A civil war has begun.

This civil war is very different than the last one. There are no cannons or cavalry charges. The left doesn’t want to secede. It wants to rule. Political conflicts become civil wars when one side refuses to accept the existing authority. The left has rejected all forms of authority that it doesn’t control.

The left has rejected the outcome of the last two presidential elections won by Republicans. It has rejected the judicial authority of the Supreme Court when it decisions don’t accord with its agenda. It rejects the legislative authority of Congress when it is not dominated by the left.

It rejected the Constitution so long ago that it hardly bears mentioning.

It was for total unilateral executive authority under Obama. And now it’s for states unilaterally deciding what laws they will follow. (As long as that involves defying immigration laws under Trump, not following them under Obama.) It was for the sacrosanct authority of the Senate when it held the majority. Then it decried the Senate as an outmoded institution when the Republicans took it over.

It was for Obama defying the orders of Federal judges, no matter how well grounded in existing law, and it is for Federal judges overriding any order by Trump on any grounds whatsoever. It was for Obama penalizing whistleblowers, but now undermining the government from within has become “patriotic”.
