Gab Is Creating A Comment Section On Every Website That Could Change The Internet Forever

“It’s time to take Gab and apply it to the entire internet.”

Gab.com, known as the free speech alternative to Twitter, is creating a browser plugin to add a comment section to every website on the Internet.

Andrew Torba, who founded and runs Gab has shared a number of screenshots showing the plugin in action, commenting on websites with unavailable comment sections, and on websites with harsh moderating standards.

All comments are run through Gab, which uses the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution as their standard of moderation, meaning that the comments will only be removed if they violate the law, or violate a slim category of offences, such as doxxing, which Gab disallows.

Big League Politics reached out to Torba, who describes the comment section extension having three parts.

The most anticipated part is the browser extension, which Torba explains will allow users to “view/create a comment section on any url, including tweets, YouTube videos, news articles, etc…”

He also describes a standalone web app designed “for creating and discovering conversations on these URL’s (webpages).”

And finally, he discussed an integration of those conversions onto the Gab website itself.

“All three of these will sync and be one unified comment section,” Torba explains. “So if I comment from Gab on the url, people using the extension and the web app will see it, and vice versa.”

The only portion of his plan with a working example is the browser extension, which Torba says is still in its “super early” stages, and hasn’t had a chance for developers to “make it pretty yet.”

This plugin has the capability to change the Internet entirely if largely adopted.

Big tech platforms are known for their discriminatory moderating practices, which largely targets conservatives. One of the most glaring examples of this is the Twitter ban of conservative journalist, and Big League Politics contributor Laura Loomer, who is permanently suspended on Twitter for exposing the now widely recognized Antisemitism of freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar.

Torba believes this plugin has the capability to make huge waves in the big tech sphere.

“I have never in my career seen people so excited for a tech product,” Torba explains. “The feedback we are getting on this is phenomenal. People are fed up with being treated like children across the web.”

Torba also explains why this extension is so important, describing the timeline of the downfall of free conversations on the web:

“Comment sections were removed from blogs/mainstream news sites around 2013-2015. They all just vanished. So the conversations happening on them moved to social media. From 2015-2019 social networks have been trying to stop this with AI, shadowbanning, censorship, and no-platforming. We built Gab in response to this. Now it’s time to take Gab and apply it to the entire internet. Every URL will have a public square. We are creating the comment section of the internet.”

There is no current time-frame for this extension being released, but Big League Politics will keep you updated on this exciting innovation.

Biden Rebuffs Advisors’ Demands to Censor OANN, Newsmax, Fox News By Executive Order

Biden advisors have sought to ban conservative media from federal housing.

Published

on

According to a White House source, President Joe Biden has rebuffed suggestions that he sign an executive order that would ban certain conservative news networks from being broadcast to federal housing complexes.

The order would’ve named One America News Network, Newsmax, and Fox News by name. The former two networks are known for a broadly pro-Donald Trump editorial stance, with Fox split between establishment liberal and conservative content.

Authoritarian liberals advising President Biden are said to have suggested that Biden crack down on television and media networks which dissent from the administration’s policy views, citing the raucous US Capitol protest earlier this month as an imperative to clamp down on the opposition.

The executive order in question would most prominently affect military housing, where the cable channels in question are accessible through cable services contracted through the military services. The order, which never progressed beyond suggestions to President Biden, may even have gone so far as to restrict the television channels from private housing organizations contracted to provide lodging to military service members and their families.

Biden even went so far as to dismiss the censorship attempt as “nonsense,” according to a White House source familiar with the exchange. It’s likely that attempts to sign and enforce it would’ve been shut down by the judiciary, representing a clear attempt to discriminate against the very viewing of political expression within federal buildings.

As an authoritarian streak grows more prominent in the intolerant attitudes of American liberals, it appears President Biden himself is at least skeptical to the slightest degree of governmental censorship attempts, although Biden has never so much as even made reference to the censorship practices utilized by Big Tech companies against tens of millions of Americans.
