Jim Watkins, the owner of the controversial free speech site 8chan, has released a video on YouTube accusing liberal journalists from VICE News of illegally entering his home in the Philippines.
He talked of Nazi Germany and the U.S. treatment of Japanese-Americans during World War II in the video as examples similar to the crime committed by these so-called journalists, who he called the equivalent of brownshirts, at his domicile.
“The atrocities of the past could very well happen again if we, as decent law-abiding folks, allow this sort of action to be tolerated,” he said.
Watkins claims that VICE News reporter Elle Reeve and her producer Lani Levine broke into his home with an unnamed cameraman, and then barged into his bedroom hoping to get a scoop exposing the man who is being blamed for facilitating terrorism after two spree shooters recently posted their manifestos on his platform.

“When I was confronted by them, I was completely shocked. I had already told the same employees of VICE News that ‘no, I did not to be interviewed by them.’ They had no right to be in my home,” he said.
Watkins claims they are “lucky to be alive” because he would have reacted much differently to their intrusion had his children not been around. He claimed that the videos were being livestreamed on social media. The Twitter accounts of Levine and Reeve are now blocked from public accessibility.
Despite the encounter, Watkins is emboldened to keep his platform free for individuals to be heard on the internet who are deemed guilty of wrong-think by Big Tech monopolists.
“I run my website so that those who are silenced still have a placed to write and be heard,” he said before noting that he had been banned from publishing by many of the tech giants.
Watkins also said he would rather be interviewed by someone like Joe Rogan, the popular stand-up comedian who hosts an influential podcast, than someone from the biased fake news.
This follows a VICE News report that painted 8chan as a menace responsible for facilitating the rise of white supremacist terrorism. U.S. government officials hope for censoring one of the last bastions for free speech on the internet.
“Do you have any recommendations about what can be done to address the violent hate speech and incitement of violence found on fringe sites like 8chan and Gab,” Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL) asked U.S. deep state officials during a recent House Committee on Homeland Security hearing.
“Y’all don’t have any suggestions for us?” Rogers said after hearing silence. “That’s scary.”
“What we’ve seen in the last four to five years is the homegrown violent extremist threat, where someone can get on the internet and self-radicalize,” said Michael McGarrity, assistant director for counterterrorism at the FBI, who claims his agency is actively investigating “racially motivated extremists who support the majority of the white race.”
“We’re seeing that same type of threat in the domestic terrorism world, where individual actors — lone wolves — can find their ideology to justify their actions online,” McGarrity added.
“We know much of this is happening on 8chan, and if we have not had any direct contact with the administrators of 8chan, then I don’t know what protocols we have in place to make sure the materials are taken off 8chan as quickly as possible,” Rep. Max Rose (D-NY) said.
VICE News may have become overzealous in an attempt to defame Watkins to assist further censorship efforts against internet freedom. Authorities in the Philippines have been notified of the alleged breaking-and-entering crime. VICE News has yet to comment on the scandal.
Reuters Calls Louisville Riots Where Cops Were Shot by Black Lives Matter Terrorists ‘Mostly Peaceful’
After cops were shot in Louisville during widespread Black Lives Matter rioting on Wednesday night, Reuters had the audacity to claim that the demonstrations were “mostly peaceful.”
Demonstrations in Louisville wore on past nightfall in defiance of a 9 p.m. curfew and remained mostly peaceful until several gunshots rang out in the midst of a skirmish between protesters and heavily armed police https://t.co/lvEd2XalpJ pic.twitter.com/L8GrPNrwCg

In the Reuters article linked in the tweet, the shooting of the police officers was buried in the article. Instead, editors focused on the race of the cops who returned fire to Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend after he shot at them while they were carrying out a lawful warrant at his home.
“Two white policemen who fired into the apartment of Breonna Taylor, a Black medical worker, will not be prosecuted for her death because their use of force was justified, and a third was charged with endangering her neighbors, Kentucky’s attorney general said on Wednesday,” they wrote.
Reuters buried the lead, opting to demonize the “heavily armed police” who sent the “crowd scurrying for cover,” even though it was the Black Lives Matter/ANTIFA terrorists who shot the law enforcement officers.
Big League Politics reported on the decision by Kentucky officials to charge one of the three officers involved in the shooting death of Taylor:
On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.
Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.
Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.
The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.
Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order…
Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
