A single activist has claimed sole responsibility for shutting down Facebook’s largest and most impactful pro-President Trump group, The Deplorables.
@Onesecondname, a self-described “highly-medicated ADHD kid” in her Twitter bio, said that her “many hours every day anonymously reporting racial/homophobic slurs” led to the group’s demise. Sadly, the offensive content in the group was the work of covert left-wing activists. Facebook ignored administrators’ pleas to help police the content or to kick out malevolent actors from the group.
????????Once again, I am going to go on record saying *I* am the person who made this happen in July 2017. Took a while, but I spent many hours every day anonymously reporting racial/homophobic slurs.
NEVER doubt your abilities. Make shit happen!https://t.co/I7zDN7k5vO

The Deplorables was at one time the most relevant pro-Trump group. Founded in the late days of the election, it quickly grew to about half a million members. I was an administrator on the group, as were many other conservative voices including Pamela Geller.
However, after a sustained effort by left-wing trolls to post racist comments in the group, it started to decline. The group’s chief administrator Dan Schwartz blamed an activist named Michael Moates for allowing trolls and fake accounts into the group, while most of the other administrators blamed Schwartz for eventually selling it for $15,000 to some kind of Macedonian troll organization. Facebook strongly resisted Schwartz’s effort to get help with tools to police the activist content.
Perhaps the most successful conservative pro-Trump Facebook site to emerge from the 2016 election was the half million-member page called “The Deplorables”. It was destroyed last week by the actions of one of its founders. Dan Schwartz, a founder and chief administrator of the site, secretly sold it to Macedonian ‘shit posters,’ in Mr. Schwartz’s words, for the relative pittance of $15,000.
Ironically, at the top of The Deplorables page, there is a warning about not posting ‘fake news’ from Macedonian scammers, as happened frequently during the 2016 election cycle. Now the entire page is ‘owned’ by fake news purveyors, who no longer allow members to post articles.
“The Deplorables,” whose membership has consistently hovered around 460,000, sprang up in the aftermath of Hillary Clinton’s remark to an LGBT audience, on September 9th, 2016, that half of Trump voters were “a basket of deplorables.”
At a barbeque for a handful of Trump supporters on September 11, 2016, the idea for a Facebook page with that name was born. Dan Schwartz, an unemployed hearing aid designer, set it up the following week. Within days there were 100K members. By election day there were an unheard of 450,000 active participants on the site.
In the succeeding 18 months, the site has been an organic community of half a million authentic, conservative members, who supported their favorite news sites, magazines and other think tanks by posting links to share with fellow members. An article could get 20,000 likes in two days – creating value for writers and websites.
In a Facebook messenger post to fellow founders on Sunday, Mr. Schwartz boasted about his action: “Fellow Deplorables, I have some great news: I sold The Deplorables, and the $15 grand is in the bank! As Donald Trump would say, “you don’t fall in love with an asset.” … Basically the buyer is a Macedonian shitposter from Veles, who set the group to admin-only posting; and he removed the other admins. I left the group, and I recommend that you leave, too.”
In a series of online conversations, the original members of the group expressed dismay that Mr. Schwartz had betrayed the trust of the 460,000 current members by handing over their information on Facebook to Eastern European professional scammers – thereby turning the site into the Fake News that liberals have long alleged it to be and conservatives have long railed against.
The action has been reported to Facebook through online channels, but it is not yet known how the company will respond. How this instance of an admin ‘selling’ a FB page to Eastern European scammers, of the sort who distort political news, is yet unknown. Mr. Schwartz noted, in multiple texts, that he had gotten away with ‘selling the Brooklyn Bridge.’
Members of the group were astounded that Schwartz sold the asset for a fraction of its estimated value. Consultants have estimated that the group information is worth a minimum of fifty cents per name.
“Desperation begets perfidy,” said one angry founding member.
Left-wing Snowflakes Working for Publisher Attempt Censorship Revolt Over New Jordan Peterson Book
They really hate freedom of expression.
Shortly after news broke that individualist author Jordan Peterson would be releasing a new book, far-left staffers at the book’s publisher, Penguin Random House Canada, are attempting a revolt to get the book censored.
VICE has reported on certain staff members throwing tantrums during a recent townhall over Penguin Random House’s intended publication of Peterson’s new book, Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life. The book is scheduled to be released in March 2021.
“He is an icon of hate speech and transphobia and the fact that he’s an icon of white supremacy, regardless of the content of his book, I’m not proud to work for a company that publishes him,” a LGBT pervert who wants Peterson’s book to be censored said to VICE World News.
Another weakling employee said that “people were crying in the meeting about how Jordan Peterson has affected their lives.”
“The company since June has been doing all these anti-racist and allyship things and them publishing Peterson’s book completely goes against this. It just makes all of their previous efforts seem completely performative,” the employee said.
The publisher is apparently not folding to the snowflakes and will continue with their plans to publish the book despite their whininess.
“We announced yesterday that we will publish Jordan Peterson’s new book Beyond Order this coming March. Immediately following the announcement, we held a forum and provided a space for our employees to express their views and offer feedback. Our employees have started an anonymous feedback channel, which we fully support. We are open to hearing our employees’ feedback and answering all of their questions. We remain committed to publishing a range of voices and viewpoints,” the statement said.
Big League Politics has reported on how companies are beginning to ignore their left-wing employees and instead make decisions based on market demands:
A contingent of leftist snowflakes working at Spotify are demanding that certain podcast episodes of the Joe Rogan Experience be censored to their ideological demands, or they will strike.
Last week, it was reported that Spotify was undergoing a revolt of sorts because several controversial episodes of the podcast were being published on the platform. An episode featuring Abigail Shrier, author of Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, is particularly offensive to the left-wing snowflakes who hate freedom of speech and love mentally-ill individuals getting their genitals mutilated.
Rogan is already being forced to grovel for making accurate statements on his podcast, such as when he correctly claimed that left-wing terrorists are starting wildfires in places like Portland.
“I said something on the podcast with Douglas Murray about people getting arrested for lighting fires, and I got duped. It’s wrong,” Rogan said in an Instagram post.
Smelling blood in the water, the Spotify leftists are going for the jugular. They are threatening to strike if they cannot exert further ideological control over Rogan’s podcast. According to Digital Music News, New York-based Spotify employees are intending to strike with accompanying pro-censorship protests outside of Spotify’s Manhattan headquarters.
However, they report that Spotify brass is likely willing to stare down these entitled employees, considering the $100 million investment they put into Rogan’s podcast.
“It also appears that Spotify management — including CEO Daniel Ek — has a limited tolerance for the mutiny on deck… The reason for Ek’s pushback is somewhat obvious. Joe Rogan’s entire identity revolves around unfiltered discussion and opinion, and audiences could abandon the podcast if it becomes censored or controlled,” Digital Music News reported.
Companies are beginning to realize that “get woke, go broke” is a truism and adjusting accordingly by ignoring liberal tantrums.
