Yes, Twitter IS silencing Conservatives.

Reblogged from Small Dead Animals today:

Twitter caught red fricking handed.

James O'Keefe's Project Veritas released a bombshell report on Thursday that shows Twitter employees admitting to censoring right-leaning accounts, including banning them from the network because they do not agree with their political views.
The report, based on undercover videos, shows Twitter employees admitting that they "shadow ban" right-leaning accounts, which essentially bans them from the platform without letting them know that they have been banned while allowing left-leaning accounts to slip through without the same scrutiny.
Another Twitter employee, Pranay Singh, admitted that the majority of their algorithms are geared in such a manner that they target people with certain political views.

In other news, the Canadian government is planning on making them do it even harder.

"Minister [of Democratic Institutions Karina] Gould has repeatedly stated that while social media companies are taking initial steps to ensure that their platforms are not being used as tools for foreign disinformation campaigns to undermine Canada's democratic institutions, there still remains a great deal of work to be done," wrote Nicky Cayer, spokesperson for Gould, in an email to the Sun. "This is a challenge that is being faced by democracies around the world. We are studying other countries' approaches to see what works and what does not, what would be appropriate in a Canadian context and what — like censoring Canadians' speech — would be unacceptable."

 Given the type of news running on CBC, CTV and Global, they'll just tell Google, Facebook and Twitter to crank the shadow-ban thing up to 11.

And as an aside, since when do we need a fricking Ministry of Democratic Institutions? Are you kidding me? My eyes are rolling so hard I can see my brain.

Left demands more Trump, faster!

There is more very troubling news out of the Parkland Fl shooting incident. Today an EMT is saying they were told to stand down when they arrived at the high school.

Speaking to a WSVN Miami News 7 reporter, an emergency medical responder who was one of the first at the scene, said law enforcement did not follow mass casualty event protocols.

So, even though the link is to InforWars, this is a Lamestream Media report. No doubt a bit of sleuthing will be easy for those who love to hate Alex Jones.

"Everything I was trained on mass casualty events says they did the wrong thing. You don't wait for the scene to be cleared. You go in immediately armed. Retrieve the victims. You can't leave the victims laying there."
"We were asking to go in. Asking the scene commander to go in. Why are we all standing around? Why are we not having patients to treat? Why are we not going into the building and retrieving these kids? The response every time was law enforcement did not clear the scene and would not allow medical personnel in."
"I would hypothesize I could have saved lives. I can't say for sure."
"I would have risked my life to go in. I was eager to."
"I was frustrated the entire time I was there."
"Rapid evacuation of the wounded. All they had to do was drag them out of the building. And we could have started medical care."
"I think they made the decision they thought was right at the time. But I don't think it was the right one. They should have been more aggressive about getting the victims out."
"Can't say for sure if the people were dead inside or if they could have helped."
17 kids and adults died that day. This guy is saying it might not have been that way if he'd been allowed to do his job the way he's trained to do it. He would know, right? He's seen gunshot wounds before, after all.

The Lefties, faced with this massive dereliction of duty by police at every possible level from the top to the bottom...

Why? Because they have an agenda, which they cannot follow if Americans are all armed and can all shoot back.

Just think on that for a little while. Consider that idea, in the light of the abject failure of the federal, state and local police apparatus that was shown in this event.

You wanted more Trump? You got it!

Left discovers how to get more Trump.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Thousands of gun enthusiasts -- more so than ever -- flocked to the Florida State Fairgrounds for the Florida Gun Show event.
Organizers say they had a record number of people attend the event on Saturday, Feb. 24, almost 7,000, and expected more Sunday.
The manager for the Florida Gun Show, George Fernandez, says they've never seen such a big crowd.
The company canceled the show in Fort Lauderdale next month after the mayor asked them to show respect to the victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting earlier this month.
With the heated debate over gun control staying front and center, Fernandez expressed concerns over proposed gun laws possibly restricting gun owners.
 With Barry the Gun Salesman In Chief out of the White House, gun dealers have been feeling the pinch of reduced demand. CNN has stepped up and taken over from The One. This may well be another record month! Woo hoo!

Leftist solution to violent crime: arrest the victim.

Read these two articles one after the other.


Broward County police allowed high school students to get away with literally any crime to improve county statistics and budgets. Result: 17 dead in Parkland. Plus who knows how many more rapes, armed robberies and murders.


One man is in hospital and a property owner is in custody after shots were fired during an alleged theft in progress early Saturday, Alberta RCMP said later in the day.

It happened near Okotoks at about 5:30 a.m., police said in a release, adding officers were on scene within minutes.

"The owner of the residence encountered two individuals rummaging through his vehicle(s). During the confrontation with the individuals, there were an unknown number of shots fired from a firearm. The suspects then fled the scene."

You defend your property and probably your life with a firearm, YOU go to jail. But this is my favorite part here:

Police are cautioning property owners to call them rather than "pursue or engage with suspicious individuals."

Translating from Officialese, this means "Let the punks take it, or we'll bust you down to your underwear and you'll never see freedom again." Probably for the same reason as Broward County, they don't want their statistics to slip. That's the true result of Leftists identity politics, playing itself out through bureaucracy.

Armed cops waited OUTSIDE the school.

We knew that the armed "resource officer" assigned to the Parkland High School waited outside while the shooter killed 17 people. Now it develops that four of them were there, hiding behind their cars.

When Coral Springs police officers arrived at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on February 14 in the midst of the school shooting crisis, many officers were surprised to find not only that Broward County Sheriff's Deputy Scot Peterson, the armed school resource officer, had not entered the building, but that three other Broward County Sheriff's deputies were also outside the school and had not entered, Coral Springs sources tell CNN. The deputies had their pistols drawn and were behind their vehicles, the sources said, and not one of them had gone into the school.

But yeah, let's kill the NRA and burn the NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch. It's their fault, damnit.

Leftist solution to gun violence.



"I want to make this super obvious point," Loesch said. "The government has proven that they cannot keep you safe. And yet, some people want all of us to disarm. You heard that town hall last night. They cheered the confiscation of firearms. And it was over 5,000 people."

"I had to have a security detail to get out," she said of the Sunrise, Fla. event. "I wouldn't be able to exit that if I didn't have a private security detail. There were people rushing the stage and screaming burn her."

Stay classy, CNN.

More guns, less crime.

This is a timely news piece from Minnesota. Record low crime rate coincides with record high gun ownership.

Minnesota's violent crime rate hit a 50-year low in 2016, according to the FBI.

And in 2017, the state set a new record for firearms background checks.

The National Instant Criminal Background Check System reports it processed nearly 683,544 checks on gun buyers in 2017. That includes: 473,975 permits, 94,383 handguns and 125,516 long guns.

Minnesota set another 2017 record, too.

The State Department of Public Safety reports 283,188 Minnesotans now have permits to legally carry firearms in public.

In 2017, the state issued 57,651 permits to carry a weapon in public. That's down from a record 71,156 permits issued in 2016.

Please note that Minnesota is a state that has experienced -massive- immigration from Mexico and also Muslim nations, yet remains largely peaceful.

I lived there a couple years, my impression was that rural people would give you the shirt off their back if you needed it, and they'd give you a bullet just as quick if they thought you needed that. New imports don't mess with the locals much in rural Minnesota. Some mutual respect thing going on there.

I predict, not having done the research myself, that if you looked at a crime map you would find that pretty near all the serious crimes like robbery, murder and rape happened in Minneapolis-St. Paul, in a few very localized pockets. Maybe some in St. Cloud, but not a lot. The state is very discontinuous. There's Minneapolis, run by DemocRats and suffering from all that DemocRat management implies, and then there's the whole rest of the state, where pretty much nothing ever happens.

The Olympics: Statist propaganda since 1936.

Say what you want about Hitler using the 1936 Olympics for Nazi propaganda; at least when he killed millions and starved millions more, he did it in other countries. Not Germany.

Today, 2018, we have the spectacle of the Western media feting a murderous dictator who kills and starves his own people. Imagine what he'll do if we let him out.

Therefore, I'm requesting that y'all do what I'm doing: boycott the shit out of the TV coverage. Don't give them a single click or moment of viewing.

Art does not excuse evil.

The next time some SJW tells you what a great "artist" Marion Zimmer Bradley was, and how the woman's books were so amazing, just send them this:

The Last Closet has been an Amazon bestseller for weeks as a Kindle e-book, and is scheduled to be published as a print book this month. Over one hundred readers have reviewed it, and virtually all have given it five stars.

The book recounts Greyland's life with her mother, who was the author of The Mists of Avalon and many other famous works of science fiction and fantasy, and her father, Walter Breen, who was a world-renowned authority on numismatics. Both identified as "gay," both abused drugs and were involved in occult practices, and both were pedophiles, Greyland says, a claim that has been confirmed by her only surviving brother.

It might also be instructive for the SJW to be reminded that Orson Scott Card, author of "Ender's Game" and other classics, was denounced and written off by SJWs for having an opinion about gay marriage. Yeah.

The reason I mention, is that the book is finally available in print, and y'all might want to go buy it. I can't recommend reading it, because by all accounts it is harrowing, to say the least. But buying it will give the Greylands some money, which would seem a good thing to do.

The other reason is to shine a light on the reluctance SJWs have to admit that MZB was really, no kidding, the worst possible human being. There's a quiet movement afoot to rehabilitate this demon. Don't let 'em do it.

Bermuda "repeals" same-sex marriage.

This is a rather revealing article in the Guardian UK, the pinko paper of record across the pond. Here's the opening:

Bermuda has become the first jurisdiction to legalise and then repeal same-sex marriage, in what critics have called an unprecedented rollback of civil rights by the British territory.

Bermuda's governor has signed into law a bill reversing the right of gay couples to marry, despite a supreme court ruling last year authorising same-sex marriage.

Fairly bursting with outrage, eh? Here's what actually happened:

About half a dozen same-sex marriages that took place in Bermuda between the supreme court ruling in May 2017 and the repeal will continue to be recognised under the new law.

Anyone that was legally married during the time before the new law remains legally married.

But same-sex couples will now have the option only of a registered domestic partnership. Brown said those couples would had "equivalent" rights to married heterosexual couples, including the right to make medical decisions on behalf of one's partner.

Under the law, the rights of "married" people are the same as those with the newly created "domestic partnership."
Meaning, as we all expected, that none of this was ever about rights for gay people.

LGBT civil rights groups said domestic partnerships amounted to a second-class status and it was unprecedented for a jurisdiction to take away the legal right to marriage after it had been granted.

"Governor Rankin and the Bermuda parliament have shamefully made Bermuda the first national territory in the world to repeal marriage equality," said Ty Cobb, director of Human Rights Campaign Global.

"I feel enormously disappointed," said Joe Gibbons, a 64-year-old married gay Bermudian. "This is not equality, and the British government has obviously just said, 'This is not our fight.'"

This is about sticking it to the straights. That's what it has always been about. That and welfare money. Same-sex couples wanted access to spousal payments given to traditional marriages by government. Now they have everything they wanted, and they are screaming all the louder.

Bermuda's Senate and House of Assembly passed the legislation by wide margins in December and a majority of voters opposed same-sex marriage in a referendum.

In Bermuda, the straights stood up for their beliefs and traditions in a way that the Bermudan government could not safely ignore. The people voted, and this is the result.
To the Guardian and the LGBT "community," aka professional activists, the will of the people is of no consequence. A vote of the governed is a mere legal impediment, something to be mocked, scorned and overturned by governmental power as soon as possible.

They don't believe in freedom. They believe you should shut up and do as you're told.

The Cameltron doubles down.

Floppy Cameltron persists in his sea lion attacks on Sad Puppies authors. This is a comment I left there today. He probably won't post it himself, because the truth hurts. So, being a great guy, I'll do it for him.

Still milking it, eh Floppy? 11 days later, everybody else has moved on except you. Interesting.

Just a reminder that this all started because -you- stupidly decided you needed to mock Lou Antonelli and his new writer's guild.

One word of apology from -you-, floppy, and poor put-upon Foz and her (utterly invisible hasn't been heard from) husband will be left in peace. No more Bad Puppies accusing her of being Normal Girl. (The bastards, saying she's happily married to a man! The nerve of them!)

Think of it, Floppy. One little "sorry" from you to the Pups, and the horrifying torture of the innocent could stop! You don't even have to give up your secret identity! Wow! What a deal!

You won't, obviously, because you're getting all this delicious uproar. Sure, poor ol' Foz is suffering, but you don't mind that so much. It isn't like she's married to -you-, right?

You know, flopster, the true proof that you're not married to that woman is that she hasn't strangled you in your sleep yet.

By the way, feel free to play fuckaround with the spam filter business, this is going up at my blog too. Click-whoring has its downside.

The Phantom

Update: Lou Antonelli has had a change of heart, and says Floppy Cameltron is not the guy Lou said he was. This explains why Foz has not been arrested for cameltron strangling.

We will now be treated to a Cameltron victory lap. Oh joy.
