CENSORSHIP: Microsoft Threatens to Drop Gab Hosting Over ‘Hate Speech’

The Silicon Valley fascism continues.

Published

Continuing a pattern of censorship of free speech by Silicon Valley leftists, Microsoft has threatened to stop hosting Gab.ai over “hate speech” allegations on the platform.

“Gab’s hosting provider, Microsoft Azure, has given us 48 hours to take action on two posts, or they will pull our service and Gab will go down for weeks/months,” according to Gab founder Andrew Torba.

Gab was founded as an alternative to Twitter in 2016 in the wake of censorship of conservatives, after right-wing firebrand Milo Yiannopoulos was permanently banned  from the platform. The platform promises freedom of expression without parameters to all of its users.

But now, Microsoft is claiming veto power over the content posted on Gab since they host the website.

The posts in question come from user Patrick Little, and are anti-Semitic in nature. Little was a Senate candidate who was kicked out of the GOP convention in May for his anti-Semitic views.

The posts are nutty, but does that justify handing over the keys to a multi-billion dollar powerhouse to dictate what can be said by an individual user on a privately-owned platform? This is a new level of censorship that conservatives have yet to face.

“We believe we have an important responsibility to ensure that our services are not abused by people and groups seeking to incite violence,” a Microsoft spokesperson said. “Gab.ai is of course free to choose otherwise and work with another cloud service provider or host this content itself.”

Gab has already faced backlash from anti-free speech Silicon Vally. It’s mobile app was dropped by the Apple iOS App Store and the Google Play store, meaning that it is unusable on mobile devices.

Reddit Forced to Amend New Terms of Service After Carving Out Hate Speech Exemption Against Whites

Reddit was called on their anti-white TOS.

Social media giant Reddit has been forced to amend their new terms of service after they were called out for their anti-white bias.

Quillette writer Colin Wright noted on Sunday that Reddit’s new terms of service seemed to create an exemption that would allow for white people to be readily discriminated against on the platform.

“While the rule on hate protects such groups,” the old terms read, referring to various whining victim groups, “it does not protect all groups or all forms of identity. For example, the rule does not protect groups of people who are in the majority or who promote such acts of hate.”

Even though white people are a global minority, they are demonized by so-called minorities in the few countries in which they do have a majority. It does not take much analysis to understand why the terms of service were written in this manner and which group they were referencing.

After they were called out for their anti-white policies, Reddit changed their terms of service yet again. They made the policy on hate speech more vague, and less explicit, but still allowing for whites to be demonized on their platform.

“While the rule on hate protects such groups, it does not protect those who promote attacks of hate or who try to hide their hate in bad faith claims of discrimination,” Reddit wrote in the new terms of service.

Big League Politics reported on how Reddit booted r/TheDonald off the platform earlier this week as they intensify their Orwellian crackdown against dissident voices:

The social media platform Reddit announced on Monday that they are banning r/TheDonald and many other prominent channels supposedly guilty of hate speech in a massive censorship crackdown.

In addition to r/TheDonald, Reddit will also be removing r/ChapoTrapHouse and over 2,000 other channels from their platform. Reddit is santizing their platform before this year’s U.S. general election, and they want to make sure information is as tightly controlled as possible. They are doing this supposedly at the behest of Black Lives Matter activists who complained that Reddit was not doing enough to censor the voices of their opposition.

“I have to admit that I’ve struggled with balancing my values as an American, and around free speech and free expression, with my values and the company’s values around common human decency,” Reddit CEO Steve Huffman said in a call with reporters.

Huffman claimed that users on r/TheDonald promoted content that they want to suppress, so the entire community must go.

“The community has consistently hosted and upvoted more rule-breaking content than average (Rule 1), antagonized us and other communities (Rules 2 and 8), and its mods have refused to meet our most basic expectations,” Huffman said.

The new terms of service for Reddit contains a great deal of gibberish that can be essentially used to toss all speech deemed offensive to the left-wing mob off the platform.

Reddit is engaged in the Big Tech conspiracy to suppress conservative thought in the run up to this year’s presidential election. They ought to lose their special government protections under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act until they consistently respect the American values of freedom of speech and open expression.
