Like all forms of Information Control, book burnings in the modern era may look different than in the past, but they are the same in intent and effect. Whether it’s deplatforming, demonetizing, or silently limiting the reach of posts, it’s all just the book burning of the Internet Age.
Some things only change in detail and specific methodology. Whether it’s Goebbels’ Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda (RMVP), Facebook, Twitter, or the insinuative monster that is Google, the strict control of information is a prerequisite for the sought after tyrannical rule. Changing the name or the specific methods of control doesn’t change the fundamental fact of it or the effects it has upon Peoples.
Newbie Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not a shy and retiring flower; nor is she prone to the basic humility expected of a freshman politician. No, she’s just another nasty Chola whose prone to threatening people.
First, it was Donald Trump Jr. being threatened by Ocasio-Cortez, and now it the CEO’s of Microsoft, Facebook, and Google receiving threats.
And, unlike the thoughtless threat against Donald Trump Jr., these threats are ideologically based and, hence, are more serious. Even more serious since they’re a direct attack on basic rights that are both constitutionally enumerated and set forth in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Dear Mr. Nadella, Mr. Zuckerberg and Mr. Pichai,
We are writing to you today in light of the important role that your companies play as we prepare to take comprehensive action on climate Change. As Members of the House of Representatives, we have already begun our individual, committee, and caucus efforts to make this issue a top priority in the 116th Congress. That is why we were deeply disappointed to see that your companies were high-level sponsors of a conference this month in Washington D.C., known as LibertyCon, that included a session denying established science on climate change.
The past commitments of your companies to address climate change have been well documented. We are encouraged that each of you have pledged to reduce your carbon footprint and have committed other efforts like pursuing renewable energy. We need more of this commitment from corporate America. Disappointingly, though, the example you have set promoting sustainability and evidence-based science is compromised by your implicit support of the session organized at LibertyCon.
We understand that sponsorship of an event or conference is a common occurrence and that these sponsorships do not automatically indicate that the company endorses the variety of political viewpoints that may be presented at these events. However, given the magnitude and urgency of the climate crisis that we are now facing, we find it imperative to ensure that the Climate-related Views espoused at LibertyCon do not reflect the values of your companies going forward.
As you are well aware, the spreading of misinformation can be dangerous to our society. Today’s coordinated campaign to deny climate change, or to put a positive spin on its effects, is not unlike that of the tobacco companies which once sought to discredit their product’s link to cancer. Their propaganda kept the nation from addressing a public health crisis for years, leading to many preventable deaths. We cannot afford to make the same mistake again with Climate change. We must be resolute against granting this campaign any credibility, whether intentional or otherwise.
We look forward to hearing from you in the hope that we can continue to count on you as allies in the fight for a more sustainable future.
Now think about that. Ocasio-Cortez is “concerned ” that the three big tech firms were among the sponsors of an event that included among many other Libertarian and Libertarian-leaning sessions, one that spoke against the AGW position that she believes in. She concerned enough to write to the CEOs of those companies in order to make sure that they won’t do that again.
Essentially, the puta said to them, “Those are some nice stock prices you’ve got there. It’d be a shame if we subpoenaed you and something happened to it.” And she made sure to have Rep. Pingree involved to lend muscle to her implied threat of the loss of 10s of billions of dollars.
That, my fellow Americans, is the beginnings of tyranny. When a worthless politician is comfortable with threatening corporate leaders if they don’t make sure to never again lend support to any event or gathering that might include something that the politician doesn’t like, liberty and America are already moribund.
And, nor is this completely unfounded hyperbole or hysterics on my part. Ocasio-Cortez has already framed Global Warming as an existential threat that must be fought without limits.
Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us are looking up and we’re like: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?
This is our World War II.
Just pause a moment and think about her language and the belief structure it is evidence of. It’s the language of extremism and fanatical belief. And, it is the language that led to World War II; it was just couched in German instead of English. It’s the language used by those who have already accepted any moral cost for the sake of their cause.
Think about this carefully and act accordingly.

Your Privacy…Going Away Fast
Yeah, with companies like Googly, Amazon, and Facebook, all of whom consider people to be product as least as much clients, your privacy isn’t so much in danger as already eradicated. This is especially true of Google and Facebook since their business model is literally predicated upon being able to sell your personal data and habits to third parties.
Not That You Have No Right To Privacy; You Surrendered It
Of course, the brouhaha over this “violation” of people’s privacy only exists because one of the third parties sold or gave the information that they gathered to entities that the Lamestream Media and the Liberal and Progressive enemies of we Deplorable hate. After all, nobody has either the right to- or expectation of privacy when one has already surrendered it willingly – nay, eagerly – to persons or companies who never made any secret of their using of it for their own purposes.
And please do remember that both the Obama and Clinton campaigns similarly mined data from Facebook users, albeit more openly when it came to the actual users. In all the cases though, their friends’ data was accessed without prior knowledge or consent, used to create profiles of those friends, and said profiles then used to target campaign strategies. And yet, when done by either Obama or Clinton this was either lauded, excused, or ignored by the very same sorts complaining now.
Google modifies, tweaks, and just plain changes its search algorithm on a regular basis, most often to disrupt the effectiveness of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) efforts. Now, however, a Google research team is trying to change the algorithm, to measure the “trustworthiness” of a page, rather than its reputation across the web.
The system – which is has not yet gone live – counts the number of “incorrect” facts within a page to determine its ranking in search results instead of its reputation or popularity, as measured by incoming links, across the web.
Google – The Internet’s Gatekeeper
This, of course, begs the questions of whose facts? Whose truths? Who will decide what is innacurate and, hence, to be downlisted and effectively censored by Google?
Google’s answers are that facts that the web unanimously agrees upon are considered to be a reasonable proxy for truth. Web pages that dissent from this consensus by containing contradictory information are to be bumped down the rankings, effectively censoring them by removing them from the bulk of the web’s users.
So, insofar as the internet’s greatest gatekeeper, Google is concerned, consensus reality will be the only reality. And, of course, Google will be the arbiter of that consensus.
I guess, if Google’s plan is allowed to be implemented, nobody will read where you wrote, “And yet it moves.“
