Conservative Social Media Site Gab Is Taken Down By Paypal and Microsoft

Start your own social media network they said. You can have free speech over there, they said.


As I have said previously, we need to fight this out in the public square.

Never retreat to a Conservative ghetto, or to Setppin' Fetchit public behavior.

Stand tall publicly for what you believe in.

Big tech (which was founded by people who at one time were proud of how tech allowed freedom) may be able to shut Gab up at the moment. But there will be some companies somewhere who will host them and handle their payments. And then they will be back on the air. So the only real damage that has been done will be to the public reputations to Big Tech and to allow the public to plainly see what some of us have plainly known for years about woke secular Progressive post-modernists. That being it is now the Official Religion of people who claim to not believe in religion and thus who have no values.

Since such people reject moral principles, they are left to continually adjust what passes for morality by relative comparison with both the people they admire and the people they loathe. Thus the phenomena of "virtue signaling", and even "virtue beaconing", whereby you must continually broadcast your own progressive values so that you can position yourself in virtue space with others of the same ilk.

The ultimate in virtue signaling is to act in concert to "murder" someone or some group that has values you reject by ejecting them from the same social space that you occupy. Well happily, ejecting Gab from this social space will not succeed for long.

I have moved to Gab and away from Twitter. Twitter is empowered only by increasing users. It is nothing without users. The same for all other social media platforms.

I believe that freedom of expression brings societal homeostasis.

By allowing each individual to have a voice, Americans find distinct "communities" whose company they enjoy; find challenges to our own thoughts and preconceived ideas (many installed in childhood by our parents); and the sensible are also more readily able to spot insensible fools. I have gotten away from the word "racist" because it provides cover for lack of wisdom. Folly/foolishness/fool are my preferred descriptions.

The foolish, whilst feeling empowered within their digitalized spaces actually undergo a process of marginalization of themselves as they increasingly not only refuse to leave the reservation, but then refuse to leave the small corral in which they have placed themselves. Locked up instead of open range. They just do not grasp it.

Freedom of expression is a win-win situation. It is a winning proposition for rational, intelligent human beings. And it is a winning proposition for those who congregate with their fellow jesters. Keep's 'em out of the way for the rest of us.

Under the Big Top - the bigger picture presents as one of healthy society. In America, we have the healthiest of democratic societies. MSM would try to tell us otherwise.

Saturday - one man attacked a synagogue. The rest of us? We engaged responsible behavior.
The statistics continue to be pretty darn good regarding 1st and 2nd Amendment Rights with regard to healthy human interactions in America.
