Censors Gonna Censor
Plus, now you can pay me - but only if you wanna
Shit’s getting serious, boys and girls. (And all others!) Just a couple days after Neil Young demanded it was he or Joe Rogan on Spotify — and the winner predictably being Joe Rogan — the censors are at it again, and this time they earn government paychecks.
Joe Biden's Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, during an interview with MSNBC, suggested that censoring Joe Rogan would help curb the flow of misinformation surrounding covid. This is akin to the mob stopping by your Italian restaurant to admire the décor, then proclaiming it would be a shame if something happened to it.
When corporations take their direction from government, there’s a word for that. It’s fascism. Not fake “Oh no Trump is a dictator” fascism, but honest-to-goodness fascism that says if you don’t hand over a wad of cash, something just might happen to your lovely little restaurant.
Remember that over the past few years, Democrats have been threatening all sorts of actions against Facebook and other social media companies. Set against this backdrop, the threat is clear: You do what we want or we destroy you.
It’s sort of like how Ron Paul explained our foreign policy: If you do what we want, we give you money. If you don’t do what we want, we bomb you.
Or, put even more eloquently:
When it’s put like that, it’s NOT a tough decision! I’m gonna go ahead and ride with you! And that’s what the corporations are doing. And right now that means attacking the people who are speaking out against the narrative, even yours truly.
A group of vaccine-sceptic writers are generating revenues of at least $2.5m (£1.85m) a year from publishing newsletters for tens of thousands of followers on the online publishing platform Substack, according to new research.
First of all, even the most ardent ‘anti vaxxer’ is only against mandates. We don’t care if you want to get your shots forever, or wear your filthy face diaper forever. We are the epitome of being pro-choice.
Secondly, the only reason that people are coming here to get information is because the ‘experts’ have been failing for nearly two years now. Fauci admits that he lied about masks in order to save them for healthcare workers, but to this day any old piece of cloth strapped to your face counts as a mask. In addition, Saint Tony admits he lied about herd immunity.
"When polls said only about half of all Americans would take a vaccine, I was saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75 percent ... Then, when newer surveys said 60 percent or more would take it, I thought, "I can nudge this up a bit," so I went to 80, 85. We need to have some humility here .... We really don’t know what the real number is. I think the real range is somewhere between 70 to 90 percent. But, I'm not going to say 90 percent."
This isn’t The Science, this is The Politics dressed up in a wig, which is why The Science has so closely followed The Political Science this whole time. There was no ‘new data’ that said isolation should now only be five days, it was the POLITICAL science that demanded the move — because dumb covid rules were actually getting in the way of a functioning society once the winter wave predictably crashed over the country.
We have more examples than we can count, but a recent one is Fauci admitting children covid hospitalizations are in the hospital for something else. This was true THE ENTIRE pandemic, but only once the Political Science demands it does the truth come out.
And now the Political Science demands the censorship of those who don’t follow the narrative. Data in the real world is on our side, and the only way they can continue the farce is if nobody can see it. Thus, we are being attacked.
So far, Substack has stood strong. I think this is likely because there are no advertisers to go after, only writers and readers who pay for their subscriptions. But this is also the reason that it’s time to stand up for our convictions and prove that free speech not only has a place in modern society, it’s the lynchpin holding it all together.
That’s why today I decided to offer a paid option to readers who won’t miss the money and want to encourage Substack to stand tall. I realize many of us are already paying for a lot of subscriptions already, and I don’t want anybody to feel any pressure at all to pay for Screaming Into the Void. If you can afford it and you want to, awesome. If we get enough paying subscribers I can put more time and effort into the Sub instead of doing it in my free time, but more importantly we can stand together and give Substack a real incentive not to give us the boot.
When Twitter pulled the rug out from under me, I was unprepared and lost all the information about my followers. That won’t happen again, and Substack needs to understand that if we get shut down here today, we’ll pop up somewhere else tomorrow with the same data and fervor.
Things might look bleak, but in tough times like these, it’s important to reach back into the past and steel ourselves with wisdom passed down from generation to generation:
