The controversial free speech website 8Chan has been offline since it was widely blamed by the fake news media of facilitating recent mass shootings. The site’s owner Jim Watkins said in an exclusive interview with the One America News Network that he expects the website to be restored sometime this week.
Watkins explained to journalist Jack Posobiec that he had recently finished a hearing with the House Committee on Homeland Security where the government officials questioned him about his personal finances.
“They asked about my finances. They didn’t seem to get it that 8chan is not a billion-dollar company like the other companies they’ve been talking to. I think they were a little bit shocked at the fact that 8chan grosses about $12,000 per year,” he said.
“They started grilling me over and over again on foreign investment and foreign money. I had to get them to narrow that down a little bit because we do take money online from foreigners. They go to our shopping cart and pay us money,” he added.
Watkins made it clear to the Congressional lawmakers that he has never taken a loan from a foreign government and never worked with any foreign intelligence agency.
“They asked a lot about Russian access to 8chan, and I explained to them that the Russian government has blocked access to 8chan,” he said.
Watkins told Posobiec that he was grilled by lawmakers primarily about the Poway, CA synogague shooting, where the alleged killer posted a manifesto on 8Chan before initiating a rampage that resulted in one dead and three others injured.
Watkins said: “The first I heard about the Powoy shooting was when I saw the Assistant FBI Director being grilled on C-SPAN by Congressman Thompson. This is the first I knew about the Powoy shooting. At that time, I said ‘well, we have to get him some information because he doesn’t know anything about 8Chan.'”
He said he offered Congress a great deal of information about 8Chan and made recommendations about what could be done for authorities to more effectively work with the tech industry to prevent attacks in the future.
Watkins said he has been busy making sure that after 8Chan is restored, it will be on much firmer standing in the future and less vulnerable to attack from tech monopolies that are dedicated to implementing Big Brother censorship.
“I have been spending this time with building my own version of Cloudflare so we don’t have one central place to shut down the websites so easily because basically these giant public companies can just de-platform anybody they want,” Watkins explained.
Cloudflare terminated their agreement to host DNS services with 8Chan last month, even though they provide those same services to pedophile networks.
Watkins said: “I’ve received threats from big public companies. It’s like commercial terrorism. It’s like ‘we’re going to not only shut you down, I’m going to shut down the companies that are two hops above you on the internet.'”
He feels that if he cannot put 8Chan back online, it will be a monumental victory against digital freedom for Big Brother. Watkins feels his battle is emblematic of a much greater war for free speech in the technological age.
“I think we are the first of many, and that if I don’t get back online, then it will be considered a success, and that they’ll go after the next site, and the next site, and the next site. So I feel an obligation to turn [8Chan] back on, and that is super important to me even though it is not like a profitable enterprise. It’s so many people silenced right now,” Watkins said.
Watkins made clear that he doesn’t intend to change 8chan’s free speech policies due to political pressure. He believes that protecting anonymity is more important than ever before, and apart of the American creed.
“Proactively censoring is something they would do in Europe. It’s something they would do in the People’s Republic of China, and that’s okay because that’s their country, but Americans don’t do that,” he said.
Watkins expects 8Chan to be restored to full functionality sometime this week.
Facebook Protects Leftist Arsonists Starting Wildfires, Promotes Global Warming Propaganda
The censorship is increasing.
Tech giant Facebook is banning all chatter of potential arsonists causing wildfires that are rocking states like Oregon and California on the west coast.
Andy Stone, the veteran Democrat operative who runs communications for Facebook, made the announcement in a Twitter post:
This is consistent with our past efforts to remove content that could lead to imminent harm given the possible risk to human life as the fires rage on. (2/2)
— Andy Stone (@andymstone) September 12, 2020
At the same time, Facebook is redirecting people to globalist propaganda about climate change. They are putting this into users’ news feeds.
While Facebook may want to dismiss the notion that the wildfires on the west coast were started by arsonists, the authorities are already apprehending suspects who are believed to have started fires.
Michael Jarrod Bakkela, 41, has been hit with two charges for arson, 14 counts of reckless endangering, and 15 counts of criminal mischief. Law enforcement believe that Bakkela’s blaze caused “significant damage.”
“There are numerous homes, many of which are burnt completely, some are just heavily damaged, that are part of the 15 counts of criminal mischief,” Jackson County Sheriff’s Office public information officer Mike Moran told ABC News.
Similar to Facebook, the deep state is covering for the behavior of the leftist anarchists as well.
“FBI Portland and local law enforcement agencies have been receiving reports that extremists are responsible for setting wildfires in Oregon. With our state and local partners, the FBI has investigated several such reports and found them to be untrue. Conspiracy theories and misinformation take valuable resources away from local fire and police agencies working around the clock to bring these fires under control. Please help our entire community by only sharing validated information from official sources,” the FBI said in a statement.
Big League Politics reported last week about another far-left extremist who has been charged with setting fires:
A man with a lengthy history of left-wing political activism and a several misdemeanor convictions was arrested for allegedly setting a fire on a Washington highway as devastating wildfires burn throughout the western United States in Oregon, Washington and California.
Jeffrey Acord is a longtime Black Lives Matter activist and rioter who first was criminally charged with riot offenses during a 2014 Seattle protest, in which BLM activists reacted to the decision not to pursue criminal charges against Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson. Accord was arrested and charged with concealed carry violations at that event.
The Pullayup, Washington Police department claims to have caught Acord in the act of setting a fire in the median of Highway 167 in the state. He’s being charged with reckless burning in the second degree, a gross misdemeanor punishable by up to 364 days in jail.
In a shocking twist, Acord livestreamed his own arrest. He argued that he merely called police to report the fire, denying that he had anything to do with the fire’s origin, before police arrested him.
It is time for the organized Left to be treated like the associated forces of terrorism that they are and dealt with swiftly.
