The Mark of the Beast: Social Media Training the World to Expect Punishment for Free Speech
“To still believe… that the facebook jails, YouTube strikes and Twitter suspensions of today are not already leading us to a time of social and economic shaming and eventual incarceration and starvation, is to be fatally, stupidly naive. We are being behaviorally conditioned to both expect and receive punishment for the words we speak and write. Manner and severity of that punishment, subject to change without notice.”–Shad Olson
Now, in the same span when a conservative online media mogul became just the first dissident exile to be purged from the platforms and distribution hubs that serve as the modern town square of the internet community, online payment systems, email service providers and even major credit card companies are doing the same. Not just to patriot firebrand and provocateur, Alex Jones, mind you, but to conservative think tanks and activist organizations fighting desperately against the exact brand of globalist despotism and centralized autocratic thought policing that is now being foisted in real time.

The Freedom Center is the latest target of the Southern Poverty Law Center in their decades old, demonic, defamatory, distortion campaign against conservatives and patriots who oppose outright socialist collectivization of the United States. With a brutally simplistic strategy of intimidation, labeling and mass shaming, the SPLC labels a person or organization, a “hate speech.” They then set assiduously about the business of social and economic isolation of said organization by threatening boycott and defamatory destruction of any sponsor, corporation or service provider that facilitates operation or infrastructure of the blacklisted company or person. And the pressure works.
Southern Poverty Law Center’s War Against Free Speech
Awaken sleeper and arise, to the reality that despite decades of talk about “hate speech,” “safe zones,” “sensitivity training,” and “snowflakes,” none of this broader cultural discussion about feelings and kindness and inclusion was ever really about making a more tolerant world, (ANTIFA?) or even about safeguarding the butterfly-winged fragility of the intractably dysfunctional millennial emotional palette.
“…that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark,”
“First they came for Alex Jones, but because I wasn’t Alex Jones, I remained silent….”
