Now that the corporate state has decided to destroy any social network not on the reservation, we are seeing a spate of stories attacking the founder of Gab, Andrew Tobra.

Gab CEO Andrew Torba claims alleged Pittsburgh synagogue shooter Robert Bowers is not reflective of the platform.
That is demonstrably false. Torba has spent years recruiting racists and looking the other way as Gab users posted death threats on the site https://t.co/owypaBU8Ne

Meanwhile, according to the attorney general of Pennsylvania, the First Amendment begets “hate crimes.”
"Hate speech begets hate crimes. We need to understand that words matter in this country, and perhaps no one's words matter more than the President of the United States. When he tweets and when he speaks in these divisive ways it tears us apart." -PA Attorney General Josh Shapiro pic.twitter.com/odZ93fikBK

After the propaganda media successfully pegged Steve Bannon as something akin to a Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard, the Canadian leftist org LeadNow called for Bannon’s free speech to be shut down.

LeadNow’s website says its mission is “a more open, accountable, and representative democracy,” but this doesn’t apply to Steve Bannon or anyone to the right of Justin Trudeau.
Jeffrey Scott Shapiro, a former DC prosecutor who worked with Bannon, emphatically declared last year the former Trump strategist is not a racist. Shapiro, who is Jewish, described Bannon’s philosophy as “egalitarian America First.” Bannon said he has “zero tolerance” for “racist or anti-Semitic views.”
For the corporatist media and the state, however, America First is code for racist, sexist, and generally belligerent, possibly even violent and terroristic thoughtcrimes.
Remarkably, this surrealistic rearrangement of reality and logic is accepted by millions of Americans. It will be a determinate next Tuesday.
