We know the Left knows it’s over for them, because they are frantically trying to preserve their cultural influence NOT by being cleverer or insightful or interesting or cool but by silencing those who are clever, insightful, interesting, funny, and cool.
And that rarely works. At least, not without a tyrannical crackdown on, first, dissidents, and then on normies who become dissidents in the wake of the initial crackdowns.
Today, Gab was silenced for being a friend of unauthorized dissident crimethink (h/t guest),
Gab is up now but it sounds like it will be down tomorrow when the hosting provider pulls out. (((PayPal))) pulled the plug and (((Stripe))) did earlier. And shitlibs are cheering.
Do something, Trump.
Breaking: @joyent, Gab’s new hosting provider, has just pulled our hosting service. They have given us until 9am on Monday to find a solution. Gab will likely be down for weeks because of this. Working on solutions. We will never give up on defending free speech for all people. pic.twitter.com/YvnBOFoQQn

This is all about punishing the free-thinking collective for the actions of a mentally disturbed individual. As an off-site reader put it,
Aside from what is so unjust about this shut-down of Gab…I would add this company’s actions [joyent] against Gab strikes me as very [special people]: collective punishment. Tactic as old as the [special people] religion itself. What a coincidence.
Trump does have to do something, fast. He has to regulate these social media companies, internet hosting companies, and payment processor companies as common carriers. Do it!
