    Murder in Pittsburgh and the Targeting of Alternative Social Media

    Written by Kurt Nimmo
    Sunday October 28, 2018

    Robert Bowers, the suspected shooter at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, is being used to denounce social media not on the corporate reservation.

    Bowers had an account on Gab, the free speech social media alternative to Twitter and Facebook, where he posted antisemitic content, and this is now being used to portray the site as a haven for antisemites.

    Gab posted the following on Twitter:

    If you are a terrorist the absolute worst place for you to be online is

    We will work directly with law enforcement without hesitation, as was displayed today.

    Can the same be said about Big Tech?

    I don’t believe this will work. Gab, often described as a refuge for alt-righters bounced from corporate-government social media, is targeted for destruction.

    Soon after Gab launched in 2016, the corporate media piled on, describing the site as an echo chamber for alt-righters who are, according to the propaganda media, white supremacists and Nazis down to the man and woman.

    “Gab’s appeal for that crowd is obvious,” writes Wired, a Condé Nast publication. “The only posting guidelines are no illegal porn, no threats of violence, no terrorism, and no doxing. Oh, and a fifth commandment that literally says ‘try to be nice.’ Everything else is fair game. Notably absent? Any explicit stipulations against hate speech.”

    The “hate speech” pejorative is being used to tag anybody to the right of Hillary Clinton as extremist, the sort of people who stroll into synagogues and commit mass murder. The corporate media has done an exemplary job of demonizing the alt-right as nothing more than a fringe gaggle of racists and misogynists, which is of course absurd on its face.

    Worth going back to 2016 piece by @amandahess on Gab, “a digital safe space for the far right, where white nationalists, conspiracy-theorist YouTubers, and minivan majority moms can gather without liberal interference”

    The effort to shut down Gab depends on the Nazi stereotype. If you’re on Gab, as I am, it’s assumed you’re a fascist, a white supremacist, an angry white male acting violently to preserve his privilege.

    Three months ago we spoke out about the Nazi-loving social media platform @getongab after Nazi's threatened @EdKrassen and me.

    Today it turns out that the Pittsburgh shooter, Robert Bowers was a prominent member on Gab.

    Responsibility for all of this supposed hatred—arguing with a progressive is now considered aggressive and hateful—falls on Trump.

    The Pittsburgh shooter, Rob Bowers, was a verified blue check poster on the white supremacist social media site Gab. He specifically cited the migrant caravan as his motive.

    For the Left, violence is acceptable—if it is aimed at alt-righters and others not part of the Resistance™. Hatred is all good if it’s directed at people who are 1) white, 2) male, 3) think Identity politics is pure insanity, and 4) are not Democrats or progressives, therefore Nazis.

    Are you horrified by the mass murder of congregants at the Tree of Life Synagogue? Wonder where the shooter could have been radicalized & encouraged to "kill jews"? It's called Gab, the social network for Nazis and bigots. Powered by @stripe.

    If you believe I’m exaggerating about the effort to shut down Gab and any other social media platform not under the control of the state and its corporate partners, check out this post from Gab:

    I believe some day in the not too distant future you will not be allowed an internet presence if your political views don’t align with the state and its corporate propaganda media.

    Of course, the state isn’t “progressive,” as many alt-righters tend to think. It is fascist—a melding of state and corporate power.

    The elite are exploiting a gullible Left to advance their long-term agenda: a one world government and an all encompassing surveillance state that will make real resistance—not the kind imagined by Hillary Clinton and Debbie Wasserman Schultz—all but impossible.

    Sadly, this wouldn't just affect Sites like this forum may start voluntarily censoring speech to protect themselves from the gab effect. Talk about George Soros or neocons (which some people now say is a code word for jews) and your account may be banned.

    I hope it doesn't come here and mainly, nobody with an account here will go out and commit a crime that would reflect badly on this forum.
