Coming off of the heels of a smash CPAC speech, author and speaker Michele Malkin recommended a list of alternative social media platforms for conservatives on Thursday.

Malkin suggested that conservatives check out the alternatives to left-wing and biased platforms such as Facebook and Google on Twitter.

The platforms Malkin are promoting are new and insurgent alternatives to major Silicon Valley monopolies that regularly practice mass censorship, banning of conservative users, manipulation of search results, and much more.

ProtonMail, the service Malkin suggested as an alternative email service, is known for thorough encryption techniques that allow its users to escape mass surveillance practiced by the National Security Agency. It’s based in Switzerland, placing in a location that enables it to avoid international data collection and surveillance programs.

Minds has been billed as a free speech alternative to Facebook, describing itself as a “crypto social network” that promotes “internet freedom.” Users are compensated in cryptocurrency for their contributions to the platform.

If some of the new internet media companies Malkin suggests trying gain enough popularity to genuinely complete with Silicon Valley monopolies like Facebook and Google, it could spell a death knell for a business model in which progressive elitists utilize their positions of power at big tech companies to crush competing and right-wing points of view.

Platforms such as Facebook and Twitter offer their user base itself as the main attraction to their service and nothing more. As young people flee from Facebook, it’s possible the company will inject increasingly massive levels of advertising into the content viewed by users in an attempt to compensate for the loss of the advertiser-preferred demographic.

A decline of Silicon Valley monopolies in favor of new and decentralized could potentially herald a return to the pre-2014 “golden age of the internet,” in which users of social media platforms were the foundation of internet content, as opposed to tech bosses. After the victory of Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, progressives in places of power decided it was increasingly necessary to shut down criticism of liberal ideas online in order to preserve a place for establishment political parties and figures to retain power.

Let’s hope the legacy dinosaur internet companies take their place with defunct corporations like Enron and Standard Oil sooner rather than later!

New York Times Pressures Encrypted Messaging App Telegram to Censor Right-Wing Voices

The Times is enforcing the global censorship agenda.

The New York Times is prodding Telegram to censor right-wing voices and hamper the platform’s amazing growth as mainstream social media platforms enact Draconian censorship.

The notorious fake news rag published an article on Tuesday imploring Telegram to do more to stop so-called “far-right conspiracy theorists, racists and violent insurrectionists” from using the app to communicate.

“There’s a real push and pull between the people that are using Telegram — and messengers like it — for good, and the people who are using them to undermine democracy,” said Nina Jankowicz, a disinformation analyst at the globalist Wilson Center.

“We see the same openness and sense of connection that is used by democratic activists opportunistically exploited by extremists,” she added.

Telegram founder Pavel Durov is already starting to cave to the establishment pressure, noting that the platform is profiling its right-wing user base and beginning to remove their controversial groups and channels from the app.

“For the last two weeks, the world has been following the events in the United States with concern,” Mr. Durov said in a post on his Telegram channel.

“While the US represents less than 2% of our user base, we at Telegram have also been watching the situation closely,” he added.

The Times pointed to groups like Hate Facts and Murder the Media, which offer alternative perspectives to information curated by the fake news, and the pro-western fraternal group, the Proud Boys, communicating on the platform to facilitate the demand for censorship.

“Welcome, newcomers, to the darkest part of the web,” Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio wrote in a Telegram message. “You can be banned for spamming and porn. Everything else is fair game.”

The Times compared right-wing organizers to ISIS militants, who have used Telegram to spread their propaganda in the past. Until recently, Durov has stood strong against voices urging him to shutter his platform.

“Telegram has never yielded to pressure from officials who wanted us to perform political censorship,” Durov wrote several years ago.

Durov, a Russian-born libertarian, has run into trouble with the Kremlin over Telegram, but the Russian government has come around on the platform and now regularly use it. Dmitry Polyanskiy, Russia’s deputy ambassador to the United Nations, even urged former President Donald Trump to get on the platform after he was banned by Big Tech.

“Seems like you don’t enjoy freedom of speech in your own country any more!” Mr. Polyanskiy wrote.

Although Trump is not currently on the platform, his son, Donald Trump Jr., has joined Telegram and already commands a massive following on the pro-free speech app.

“Big Tech Censorship is getting worse and if these Tyrants banned my father, the President of the United States, who won’t they ban?” Trump Jr. wrote in a tweet. “We need a place that I can connect to you guys that represents Free Speech. That’s why I joined Telegram.”

Telegram would be wise to ignore complaints from the fake news and other globalist forces agitating for the platform to enact a regime of Draconian censorship. The market is demanding freedom and privacy, and Telegram will lose their market share if Durov betrays his principles.
