What is shadow banning? It is when a Conservative* person or group is allowed to post or email something but virtually no one will ever see it. The poster will think it was distributed just fine, but very, very few of his/her contacts will see it. This is the internet version of book burning.
Communist countries, socialist countries and dictatorships, over the centuries, controlled access to information and knowledge by destroying books and outlawing newspapers. In Communist Germany, for example, it was illegal to own medical books.
When the Communists took over Germany following WWII they also took over complete control of life & death, which included the health care industry (ie, Universal Healthcare). The Communists didn’t want Germans to know anything about medical care so the government could make all the health care decisions without citizen input or knowledge. A patient was not even entitled to know his/her diagnosis.
TWITTER WAS CAUGHT RED-HANDED
Twitter was recently caught shadow banning certain politicians. They blamed it on poorly constructed algorithms, but we all know the algorithms had been intentionally programmed to filter out conservative* content. THE ONLY TWITTER ACCOUNTS THAT WERE BLOCKED BELONGED TO GOP POLITICIANS. No Democrat was shadow banned.
Like so many “good Liberals” Twitter executives went before a Congressional committee and lied, lied, lied. They claimed their new algorithms had UNINTENTIONALLY produced this result. Ha! Ha! Twitter thinks Congress and Americans are stupid. If the shadow banning was not intentional, why weren’t any Democrat politicians blocked?
FACEBOOK HAS REPEATEDLY CHANGED
ALGORITHMS SINCE THE ELECTION
Anyone who spends time on Facebook and who has been on Facebook for at least three years KNOWS that Facebook completely revamped their algorithms shortly after the election. They may well have been filtering out some conservative* content long before that, but it was so subtle that few could be sure what Facebook was doing.
Before the summer of 2017 Facebook controlled conservative* thoughts from being seen by others by putting the conservative* posters in Facebook Jail. They never told the FB accountholder what was “wrong” with the post but at least this type of filtering was semi-open and semi-honest. Not so with shadow banning. The poster is left to wonder why no one commented on his/her post.
CENTURYLINK & CENTURYTEL CENSOR
CUSTOMERS’ INCOMING EMAILS
At least one Internet Service Provider (ISP) is deciding what their customers should not see. They do not want their customers to be “exposed to” non-Liberal ideas. By early 2018 CenturyLink & CenturyTel had started censoring their customers’ incoming emails for “Conservative* blasphemy.”
If CenturyLink or CenturyTel has labeled a certain email address as belonging to a “Conservative*,” their customers will not be allowed to receive & read that person’s email. Censorship in 2018!!! Notice I said “labeled” because this ISP will not reveal how an email address gets labeled, nor how they know that it belongs to a dreaded Conservative*. Nor will they respond to inquiries from the bounced email writer.
Even emails that only contain mundane personal chitchat, or discussions about a work project between two colleagues, are being blocked if the sender has been labeled. The emails come bouncing back with “This message has been rejected due to content judged to be spam by the internet community.”
How can it be called “spam” when there is only one recipient? And what the hell is “the internet community?” No doubt, this “community” is run not just by Liberals, but haters of our Constitutional freedoms.
HAS MENTAL ILLNESS INCREASED IN THE ERA OF TRUMP?
Like so many who lost what little sanity they had left following Trump’s election, the Liberals who run 99% of social media platforms and ISPs went to work to deny Conservatives* a voice in the modern-day public square: THE INTERNET. Over the months following November 8, 2016 Trump Derangement Syndrome set in. As the American Renaissance took hold, these psychotics became hellbent on preventing Americans from displaying support for President Trump and from distributing information about how America was benefiting under the Trump Administration.
WE ARE CLOSE TO LOSING OUR
PRECIOUS FIRST AMENDMENT
The First Amendment to the Bill of Rights (Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Press, Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Assembly) had been dying in America under oppressive Liberal policies. This should concern all Americans, regardless which side of the political fence one sits on. If one political, social or religious group can deny a freedom to all others, at some point that group will find their freedoms denied, as well. For the first time in decades Americans now have a chance to reverse this trend.
For generations, Americans really did believe: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” Now, Liberals work overtime to prevent everyone else from speaking, writing & thinking.
Like Democrats in the Jim Crow South, who screamed “keep uppity niggers in their place.” Now, The Democrats scream “keep uppity Conservatives out of the national discussion!”

*I put the asterisk behind the word “conservative” because 1) what Liberals deem conservative was very much mainstream thought 20 years ago and are mostly ideas held by the majority of Americans today, 2) Liberals are even turning on their own if the idea is not deemed Loony Left enough, just asked Alan Dershowitz and Paul Welch, and 3) 60-80% of today’s Americans are deemed “conservative” by Liberals and thus must, must, must be prevented from speaking.
