“The days of Wikipedia’s robust commitment to neutrality are long gone”
Long understood to be a an unreliable resource by serious academics, journalists, and bloggers, Wikipedia has more recently gained a broader reputation for leftwing bias.
Indeed, one of its co-founders notes that Wikipedia entries on
socialism and communism are little more than propaganda and that he is
launching a competing free-speech encyclopedia site.
Once considered a somewhat viable place to get a rudimentary handle
on a topic, Wikipedia has arguably become a repository of “left-wing
advocacy essays.” This change does not sit well with one of Wikipedia’s
co-founders, Larry Sanger.

“Kevin just got digitally assassinated by Facebook” for posting his conservative views, she said.
The left is “out for blood” in its effort to debase and degrade
language in order to render it useless, Actor and Conservative Filmmaker
Kevin Sorbo and his wife, Author Sam Sorbo said in a radio interview at
CPAC on Friday.
By distorting the meaning of words like “fascism,” the left seeks to
rob language of meaning, creating a society where violence, not words,
becomes the only means of resolving conflict and disagreement, Sam Sorbo
told Host Larry O’Connor:
“We are in a war, as much as we don’t want to be, because the left is
out for blood. And that’s why I wrote the book ‘Words for Warriors,’
because the left has taken fascism and made it right wing. There’s
nothing right-wing about fascism.
“And, we need to stop them in their tracks. They have to stop taking
our language and debasing it and degrading it and making it useless.

Superintendent told principals to talk about Capitol riot as ‘teachable moment’
“I’m not going to tell you what to think, I just want to help you
think,” Principal Barton Thorne told Cordova High School students last
month, a few days after the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol.
His recorded video message, which plays weekly in homeroom, went on
to explain the threat of social media platforms deciding who gets to
speak. President Trump and many of his supporters had been removed from
their accounts, and the competing social media platform Parler removed
from its web host, in the wake of the riot.
Tennessee’s Shelby County Schools quickly put Thorne (above) on administrative leave and opened a disciplinary investigation for “professional misconduct.” Thorne’s lawyers demanded the district immediately reinstate him and “publicly apologize for suggesting his actions were inappropriate.”
My fear for France is grounded in its lack of courage to fight for its civilization and the right of its people to speak their minds.
I am worried about France, because it is the cradle of European culture.
I love its writers and
ideas, Henry James in his 1903 masterpiece “The Ambassadors” speaks of
Paris as the epitome of civilization, it is the country that has given
so much and to which we owe so much as Europeans, the country that gives
us the only intellectuals in Europe to reflect on our world.
But it is the country that no longer knows how to defend that culture.
I am worried about France, because it is the “eldest daughter of the
Church”, because my favorite pontiff (Benedict XVI) was at home there
and now its churches are burning, these are sold, converted, demolished,
abandoned and its priests and faithful sacrificed in front of the
I am worried about France because its Jews have been physically attacked for twenty years, they are fleeing that country, they have to hide their symbols, they have buried their children as in Toulouse and then in many other massacres, and we know that Jews are the canaries of the coal mine.

During this period, Facebook says it plans to explore a variety of alternate approaches to ranking political content in people’s feeds using different data points.
Facebook said Wednesday it will temporarily reduce the visibility of political content for a small percentage of users in Canada, Brazil, Indonesia and the U.S. amid questions about the platform’s ability to moderate hateful content and misinformation, some of which may have played a role in helping to organize the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last month.
Last month, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg claimed that the insurrection on the Capitol was largely organized on other social platforms that don’t have Facebook’s “standards and transparency.” However, Forbesreported that Facebook was mentioned 73 times in charging documents filed by the Justice Department in relation to the siege, compared to 24 mentions of YouTube and 20 of Instagram. Parler—despite being popular with the far-right—was only mentioned eight times. The data indicated that Facebook was strongly preferred by the rioters who have been charged and earlier reports showed cases of Facebook users publicly posting their intention to participate in the insurrection.

Although Sorbo has been blacklisted for being a Christian in Hollywood, it has not stopped him from pursuing acting. Sorbo has since turned to faith-based movies.
On February 13 , Christian, conservative actor Kevin Sorbo, best known for his role in the popular 1990s television show “Hercules: The Incredible Journeys,”tweeted that Facebook deleted his official Facebook account with over 500,000 followers.
“BREAKING: Facebook has deleted my official account with over 500,000 followers. I have created a new page; spread the word!” Sorbo tweeted, along with a link to his new Facebook account.
The actor, who has been outspoken about his conservative Christian views, is no stranger to social media or Hollywood controversy.
Sorbo, a supporter of former President Trump, has been critical of president Joe Biden via social media and has faced backlash from Twitter users for his comments. Most recently, Lawless, who played the warrior Xena on “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” before starring in her own spinoff show, got into an ugly Twitter feud with Sorbo over the US Capitol riots in Washington, DC.
In the same post, Varga explained that Hungary must act quickly if the European Union is too slow regulate Big Tech’s unchecked power:
“We keep cooperating with the EU in the preparation of similar
regulations but recent events have shown that we need to act faster to
defend people. Today, everyone can be arbitrarily switched off from the
online space without any official, transparent and fair proceeding and
“They can switch off bakers, hairdressers, pensioners, teachers, SMEs and state leaders as well.”

Jason Miller, a senior adviser to former President Donald Trump, revealed on Saturday that the former president is considering launching his own social media platform in the not-too-distant future.
The news, which comes after Trump was banned permanently from Twitter
and indefinitely from Facebook, came during Miller’s appearance on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel.
“I would expect that we will see the president reemerge on social
media,” Miller said when asked what Trump plans to do next. “Whether
that’s joining an existing platform or creating his new platform, there
are a number of different options and a number of different meetings
that they’ve been having on that front. Nothing is imminent on that.”
Asked about what a Trump social network—called something like “Trumper” or something similar—would look like, Miller was circumspect but said the former president is considering both joining existing new platforms or launching his own competitor to the tech giants in Silicon Valley.

Amid a nationwide movement to remove statue and symbols in the name of social justice, colleges have begun banning certain words and phrases. Campus Reform rounded up examples of the words and phrases that have been banned by some colleges.
Amid a nationwide movement to remove statues, symbols, and words in the name of inclusion, Campus Reform rounded up recent examples of words that have been banned on college campuses.
State University announced it would no longer use the terms “foreign”
and “alien” in order to create a more inclusive environment. In October,
Provost Teresa Woodruff addressed the Associated Students of MSU
general assembly to announce the new “non-pejorative” language. Woodruff
stated that moving forward, international students should be referred
to as “non-domestic” or “international” to help “create a culture of not
us vs. them, but of each other.”
After the University of Pittsburgh’s Alumni Association called for a policy change to end the use of the terms “king” and “queen,” the university announced in October that it will no longer use the traditional titles. Vice Chancellor for Alumni Relations Nancy Merritt called the terms “antiquated” language. Instead, the school will provide a “Spirt of Pitt” award to homecoming royalty.
Posted onFebruary 3, 2021byifnm|Comments Off on Poland’s ‘Freedom Act’ Will Empower People to Overturn Big Tech Shadowbans
Poland’s new Freedom Act against Big Tech censorship will see members of the public automatically notified of “shadowbans” and empowered to overturn restrictions if their speech online is lawful.
Speaking exclusively to Breitbart News, Deputy Minister of Justice
Sebastian Kaleta, who is spearheading the new legislation, confirmed
that “every time an algorithm is used to limit reach, the user will be
informed if and why his reach is being limited.”
The Polish government has previously confirmed that its new laws
against tech censorship will give Polish citizens a statutory right to
appeal against bans and content removal if their speech was lawful under
the Polish constitution, with a new Free Speech Board able to order
tech firms to restore removed accounts and content on pain of huge
Some tech censorship is more insidious, however, with Silicon Valley
drastically curtailing some users’ reach and ability to build a
following — sometimes openly, sometimes not — through so-called
“shadowbans”, without ever outright banning them or deleting content.
Kaleta told Breitbart London that “the process of using algorithms to suppress particular views, as long as they do not break Polish law, (will) be regulated” and that “if social media platforms break this law, they will be fined.”
I watch Hollywood awards ceremonies where a supposed artist screams out for punching people in the face for political disagreements, and the entire horde of Botoxed brain zombies leaps to their feet in an ungodly and unholy howl of rampant bloodlust approval.
“We can call it Cultural Marxism, but at the end of the day, we experience it on a day to day basis, by that I mean a minute by minute, second by second basis. It’s political correctness and it’s multiculturalism.” – Andrew Breitbart
