8Chan Founder is Wanted for ‘Cyberlibel’ for Allegedly Maligning Current Owner of the Free Speech Site

Current 8Chan owner Jim Watkins has accused the site’s founder Fredrick Brennan of “cyberlibel.”

The Philippines has issued a warrant for the arrest of 8chan founder Fredrick Brennan after the man to whom he sold the controversial free speech website accused him of committing “cyberlibel.”

The Pasig City Regional Trial Court Branch 158 issued a warrant on Wednesday for the arrest of Brennan, his lawyer Alexander Acain Jr. confirmed to CNN Philippines. Acain says he will recommend for his client to return to the Philippines from the United States and post bail but is not sure if Brennan will heed his advice.

These charges have resulted from a complaint made by current 8Chan owner Jim Watkins, who bought the site from Brennan, after Brennan made tweets referring to Watkins as “senile” and “incompetent.” Brennan is being charged under the country’s Cybercrime Prevention Act.

“They are a malicious imputation of senility on the part of [Watkins,] a condition, status or circumstance tending to cause dishonor, discredit or contempt of [him,]” Pasig City Assistant Prosecutor Juliene Raymond Cabanacan said in an eight-page resolution issued on January 2 and received by Brennan’s attorneys last week.

Brennan, who is disabled and confined to a wheelchair, faces between 6 and 12 years in prison if he is ultimately convicted of the charges. He has become a vocal critic of how Watkins has handled 8Chan since he took full control over the site in 2016.

“I’ve tried to understand so many times why he keeps it going, and I just don’t get it,” Brennan said last year. “After Christchurch, after the Tree of Life shooting, and now after this shooting, they think this is all really funny.”

“Shutting it down, having these chan sites pushed underground, it wouldn’t totally stop these kinds of things from happening. But it wouldn’t happen every few months,” Brennan added.

Watkins, however, has contended that 8Chan is integral in the fight for global free speech and vows to keep the website up in some form to allow anonymous discussion on the Internet to continue.

“It is actually sinister behavior. Ours is one of the last independent companies that offer a place you may write down your thoughts free from having to worry about whether they are offensive to one group or another,” Watkins said after the media blamed 8Chan for enabling mass shootings.

“Power consolidation of the media beginning as radio and TV stations were gobbled up by a few strong and rich companies is now moving at a breakneck pace through the internet. It will effectively silence the masses and leave them with no place to voice their messages,” he added.

8Chan re-branded to 8kun in Nov. 2019 and was restored to the internet after being denied service by their DNS provider Cloudflare, which allows pedophiles to use their services to propagandize about the virtues of raping kids.

SHAMEFUL: Apple is Lobbying to Undercut Law Condemning Chinese Slave Labor

Big Tech is addicted to Chinese slave labor.

Published

on

The Washington Post reported over the weekend that tech company Apple is lobbying to undermine a law condemning China’s use of slave labor.

WaPo claimed that two congressional staffers are saying that Apple lobbyists are trying to undermine the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act. The Act, which passed the House of Representatives by 403-6 in September, audits importers and tech companies for potential use of Uyghur slave labor in China.

China’s persecution of its Turkic Muslim Uyghur minority is well known, with some observers speculating that the mercantile-Communist nation has moved up to a million Uyghurs to detainment camps in the Xinjang province.

Many have questioned whether Apple itself is benefiting from the use of forced Uyghur labor. Lobbying company Fierce Government relations has accepted $90,000 from the company to lobby against anti-China legislation, the Daily Caller reported on Saturday.

Apple has utilized Chinese government-run enterprises to manufacture its products for years. Global criticism of China and damage to its reputation has led the $2 trillion company to consider moving some of its manufacturing to India, a country globalist oligarchs are increasingly looking towards as a reservoir of cheap labor for outsourcing purposes.

Globalist monopolies such as Apple don’t compete within a “free market.” They secure access to governmental power in American and abroad and ruthlessly use it to their advantage.
