Tim Newman has an excellent blog post today, about the latest developments in which fringe pro-Brexit protesters have been deplatformed and defunded by the de facto powers that be, as a predictable follow-on from their ongoing campaign to silence voices that dissent from the progressive, globalist concensus.
About 18 months ago, some lonely voices on the dissident right in the US began warning of the worrying antics of large tech and financial organisations with respect to political wrongthinkers. The ZMan was particularly vociferous on this, citing the case of some obscure neo-Nazi website having its domain name yanked without any transparency or due process.
The ZMan took it one step further, and said these tactics were endorsed by the ruling classes, happy to allow Antifa mobs and social media companies to enforce the censorship they are forbidden by law from imposing directly.
Look how quickly we’ve gone from Antifa mobs getting Nazi websites shut down to this:
Facebook and PayPal accounts used to organise “yellow vest” protests that have seen MPs verbally abused in Westminster have been deleted.
Do read the whole thing. It’s very good indeed, and there’s really nothing for me to add.
