Morning Gerbils. So sorry to hear about Sven’s friend’s brother. Also very sorry to hear about conservative tree house. It’s been a long while since I’ve been there. It’s a great site. And well… at least they have a couple of months to migrate the site. That’s not the usual deplatforming that people get on other social media. Youtube, for example, just ignores their strike system and just takes you down for wrongthink when they want to deplatform you. This is why BitChute and other alternative media are so important. StyxHexenHammer666 started doing bitchute exclusives last year, and also started… Read more »

Another Contested Election Monday already?

Hi, dv8!

Sven --

Condolences to you and Mrs. Sven.

==================

Read last night on Twitter about CTH being de-platformed. Never spent a lot of time there but my impression is there were some smart, thoughtful folks on that site.

Still, it just seems evil that word press is doing this. They should be ashamed.

Cancel culture, ironically, is in need of cancellation.

What the hell has happened to the idea that the remedy for objectionable speech is more speech?

How do I get a refund????

Review the TOS you agreed to. 👿

Marxisim happened. In this country, in 1914.

Now you guys understand why I was talking about BitChute and Gab and Slug, and stuff last year : )

What I wonder though is how long all these new mediums /platforms will stay committed to freedom of speech?

hard to say. If they’re centralized, it seems to rely on the personalities and character of the leaders. Now, that being said, there are decentralized systems starting to appear. Decentralized web and chat and video are starting to be rolled out.

You can now have a web page that is out there for people to see, but it’s hosted nowhere, and everywhere. Kinda cool. using tech similar to bitTorrent.

Good morning Dv8 and Fatwa; thanks for your kind words -- happy Monday, GN!

I should have read the fine print, Fatwa.

Not quite sure where CTH will end up, but based on their history, I’m sure they will continue on and that’s a good thing.

Happy Apocalyptic Monday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, dv8, Fatwa, and Sven!

Sven -- I’m sorry for your loss. May God grant your friend the peace he was unable to achieve in this life.

dv45 -- I see more people on Facebook talking about migrating to alternative platforms. This year may just have provided the impetus people need to make the jump.

Yes paddy, I’m hoping so. It’s pretty hard to get anyone’s attention. Fox is swinging left. I just got a couple of 70 somethings I know to watch Tim Pool. (You should all watch Tim, by the way. He is a very efficient news aggregator, and a cool dude.) Also “Gab Trends” is a very good web news aggregator if you don’t want to watch video. It’s similar to what drudge used to do, except there’s no algorithmic manipulation. Just, whatever is most viewed rises to the top. It’s been good enough lately even for Harper to endorse it. She’s… Read more »

So CNN is for sale by AT&T. I’m sure it’s worth sh*t. If Trump is out of a job, he should definitely buy it and change it into the T R U M P ! ! ! ! network. He’d probably get all the best people from fox to go over. If not, he should definitely start the TRUMP!!! network. it would be awesome! Maybe he should have one of his kids do the TRUMP!!! network even if he does end up winning on a photo finish and/or a technicality. Not sure tho. TRUMP stuff seems to need TRUMP level… Read more »

That’s one of the most astute points I’ve heard in a while: “TRUMP stuff seems to need TRUMP level personality.”

On the culture war front, teh bestest place ever is making a point of acknowledging that this Friday is Transgender Day of Remembrance. No guidance, yet, as to how we are supposed to celebrate it.

I also signed up for a webinar from my professional organization this week. “Show up, Speak up, Shut up: How to be a good ally.” I hope they take questions.

No guidance, yet, as to how we are supposed to celebrate it. Maybe you could dress in drag then bitch to HR if anyone dares misgender you or expect you to meet cis-heteronormative expectations of gender expression. Show up, Speak up, Shut up -- show up when we demand, speak only what we tell you to speak, otherwise shut up. I hope they take questions. “If transgender men are real men, then why do they call themselves transgender -- why not just men?” “If there is an entire spectrum of genders, then why are there only transgender men and transgender… Read more »

Sven — I’m sorry for your loss. May God grant your friend the peace he was unable to achieve in this life. Seconded. And … um, I don’t even know what to say about The Bestest Place Ever’s Friday remembrance. Things have been so out of whack since March, some days it harder to deal than others (I’m sure everyone here gets that, too). BUT, I do have a feel-good story to share in the midst of all the madness. Last week, I pulled into work, and spotted a Lincoln MKC in the parking lot. Going into the office, there… Read more »

Here’s a random story that means nothing: So last Friday after the Big Route, (yes I’m still doing it) I was so tired I not only forgot to punch out, but had no memory of not having punched out the next day. Usually I’ll remember afterward, so I can fix my time card before it gets processed. Anyway. people have noted that I tend to dress like an 18 year old black kid, in that I wear loose fitting clothing: sweatpants and my shirts in layers; usually a tee shirt over a long sleeved tee. Anyway, we got a call… Read more »

I was tempted to ask Corporate for more details about Friday’s thing, like what we’ll be doing to remember this very important day and what type of greetings would be appropriate, but thought better of it. I’m in a bit of trouble for another question I asked them last week. Best to lie low.
