Jew-run Breitbart, like other “conservative” media operations, is feeding bullshit to their readers about how we can’t regulate Big Tech while selling them on impractical solutions.
Right now there’s a push from all sides of the political spectrum to sell people on hoax solutions to the problem of social media censorship. What’s disturbing is how so much of it is coming from alleged “conservatives.”
Let’s review some of the bullshit these “conservatives” are selling people.
Charlie Kirk, the founder of Turning Point USA, said that sites like Facebook and Twitter should be banned from being able to receive contracts from the federal government.
RT if you believe it is time for @realDonaldTrump to sign an executive order banning tech companies from getting federal contracts due to viewpoint discrimination

Tiana Lowe, a 20-something e-thot from the Washington Examiner (trained by National Review), was rambling on Twitter about how the government shouldn’t regulate these companies. She says we can’t do this because they are private entities and that regulating them would violate free market principles.
Two things can be true at once:
1. It’s immoral for social media platforms to call themselves objective platforms and then inconsistently regulate speech.
2. The government has neither the right nor the competency to regulate this problem out of existence.

David French, a National Review writer, claimed that social media censorship would eventually be corrected by the free market.
As a matter of principle (private companies enjoy the blessings of liberty) and pragmatism (social media is unlikely to improve under the watchful eye of, say, President Kamala Harris), I oppose government efforts to regulate social-media speech policies. But publicly exposing inconsistency and hypocrisy lays the groundwork for a market correction. The most powerful check on social media remains the user base; the companies’ economic models depend not just on user loyalty but also user growth.
These are all ridiculous arguments.
Kirk’s argument makes no sense, as sites like Facebook and Twitter derive little if any revenue from federal government contracts. So banning them from getting such a contract would not motivate them to change their policies.
And this gibberish about not regulating these companies because of free market principles is insane. We don’t have a free market and this makes all of these free market-related arguments null and void. What we have is a cartel of tech companies that conspire together to crush competition through tortious interference. All you have to do is look at some of the things that’s happened to Gab and the many failed attempts to build alternative payment processors.
Now we have the Jew-run website Breitbart publishing an article by John Nolte saying that we should stop whining about the existing situation and just build our own Facebook, Twitter and PayPal. And do you know why we can do it? Because the Jews found a way to create Israel even though six million of them were allegedly gassed in fake shower rooms during World War II.
Yes, conservatives can beat the prejudice and blacklists and build our own Facebook and Twitter and Apple and PayPal; of course, we can. The first step, though, is to stop playing the victim and admit that we can.
You want to know what the country of Israel is? The greatest workaround in the history of mankind.
After World War II, and for reasons no one need explain, the Jewish people believed they had no place in a world that rejected and discriminated against them. So what did they do? They created a workaround — the great State of Israel. Their own country.
The Jews were only able to create Israel because they had already gained enormous power through their control of the West’s financial, media and political systems. We do not have this type of power, so such a comparison is invalid.
But it isn’t surprising to see Nolte make this bizarre argument. After all, Breitbart per their own admission was born in the United States but conceived in Israel. It is unquestionably a Jewish operation.
Nolte makes other weird comparisons to the Mormons and NASA before calling us quitters and crybabies. He even says that he’d trade ten of us quitters for an illegal alien with a dream and work ethic.
But you’re still going to sit there and crybaby and tell me we cannot come up with our own Facebook, YouTube, Apple, Instagram, Twitter, Paypal, or whatever-the-hell other platforms these Silicon Valley fascists are using to silence us, persecute us, and discriminate against us.
That’s it? We’re just going to sit here and play the victim because it’s too hard?
Yes, I’ve heard all the excuses coming from the professional quitters and crybabies… Facebook is too powerful, too big, too dug in; we’ll never draw enough people away from it. Same with Twitter, YouTube, Instagram… If we build our own Twitter, they’ll blacklist us on PayPal; if we build our own PayPal, they’ll blacklist our credit cards; if we build our own credit cards, they’ll blacklist our bank… They’ll blacklist our URLs, they’ll remove us from their servers. It can’t be done!!! Now watch me run around in a helpless puppy dog circle to prove it!!!
You’re telling me that the same species that built its own freakin’ country cannot come up with a workaround around Mark Zuckerberg?
You’re not an American, you’re an American’t — and I’ll trade ten of you for one illegal alien with a dream and work ethic.
Needless to say, this is a totally ridiculous argument. A real American is somebody who seeks practical solutions. What Nolte is proposing is not the least bit practical.
Even if we had all the resources in the world, you can’t just build an alternative digital public square. That’s because there can only be one digital public square at any given time. Just look at how Gab is perceived compared to Twitter. Gab is looked at as a digital ghetto for people who have been banned from participating in mainstream political discourse. There are very few if any important political figures posting on both Twitter and Gab.
Gab doesn’t somehow make Twitter “not a monopoly” because it is “alternative social media.”
It also took over a decade to build Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to the point where these sites were able to comprise parts of the overall digital public square. Plus, it would take many years to build new infrastructure and attract the same amount of users that are actively using these sites. And all of this would come with zero guarantees that people would actually move over to use this new infrastructure.
The practical solution is to regulate the existing infrastructure that has already been built so that it serves the public interest. This means that sites like Facebook and Twitter would be classified as public utilities with the government guaranteeing universal access and quality of service. So political censorship, manipulated algorithms and other dirty tricks to suppress content would be strictly forbidden. The government would mandate a level playing field for all people on these platforms.
It is not practical to build completely new infrastructure to try and compete with a cartel of tech companies that already use their vast resources to sabotage competition.
Hilariously, Nolte admits that he has no idea how we would go about building any of this new infrastructure. But he wants to criticize us as whiners for simply identifying the logistical challenges of the impractical nonsense he is proposing.
Hey, I’ll admit I have no idea how to do it, and other than opening people’s eyes to the possibility, I’ll probably have no role in doing it.
But my God, can we please stop mewling about how impossible and difficult it will be?
And no, I am not arguing we stop fighting these un-American Silicon Valley fascists. My proposition is not an either/or. We need to continue to fight for our free speech rights, our fight against their blacklists and discrimination. In fact, that fight must intensify. We cannot allow these con artists, these monstrous swindlers, to capture the public square promising free speech only to pull the rug out from underneath us after that capture is complete.
But at the same time, let’s build our own workarounds, our own Facebook, our own YouTube, our own Apple, and if we must, our own banks, credit cards, and domain registrars.
He literally wants us to sit idly by while a cartel of tech companies stifle free political speech on the Internet. All while we wait for someone to build brand new social media infrastructure on par with the existing digital public square. And he wants us to do this in an environment that does not operate in a free market that is totally dominated by a Silicon Valley tech cartel no less.
This is entirely unacceptable. Our free speech rights are being violated by a private consortium of tech companies who have complete administrative control over the digital public square – largely due to the support these companies have gotten from the government directly, along with their use of taxpayer-funded infrastructure. The American people are literally paying to be banned from Twitter and Facebook, and these sonsovbitches want to tell you that’s “the free market.”
We should not have to wait years for a solution when the government can provide an immediate fix. These “conservatives” are giving Donald Trump a pass for his total lack of action on what is arguably the single most critical issue of our generation.
They can go ahead and try to claim they don’t have an agenda. But the whole thing is transparent. Breitbart is a part of the new Jewish-approved controlled-opposition right-wing, which is being led by Ben Shapiro. That is why they are coming out in defense of blacklisting unapproved publications like the Daily Stormer and Infowars – who just happen to be their direct competitors.
If “conservatives” like Nolte really believed in free political speech, they wouldn’t claim that a hoax-free market is more important than the First Amendment. It’s an insane argument that the founders of the country would have absolutely rejected if they were alive today. Because hell, if George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were alive today they would have already been banned from sites like Facebook and Twitter.
