President Trump and a slew of his associates and supporters have been shut out of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram. The payment processors like Stripe and PayPal are boycotting his election committee and his other sources of on-line funding. Amazon, Apple and Google are conspiring to de-platform Parler. Amazon is depriving them of server space on Amazon’s cloud. Apple and Google are shutting Parler’s apps out of their app stores. That effectively deprives them of access to the audience using Apple and Android operating systems on their phones. Simultaneously, Google and Facebook are shutting down all of the commercial accounts of anyone they perceive as conservative.
Conservatives are shouting, “This is an outrage, something must be done about it!”
How about saying, “Why are you people so stupid?” It’s like starting to rebuild your house on the side of Vesuvius while the lava is still smoking above Pompeii and Herculaneum. How long does it take you to wake up? Sure, it’s easier and cheaper to use the infrastructure that the Lefties built. Sure, you took a chance and up till now you’ve enjoyed the benefits of using that premium service that they provide at rock bottom prices. Fine.
But now that they’ve screwed you over wouldn’t it make sense to look around for another alternative? Whining for Amazon and Apple to respect your rights just as the black hats are returning to the White House and the Supreme Court is scared to death of being packed by the Democrat Congress seems worse than useless. It appears to be the action of a hopeless loser.
Lick your wounds, collect your wits and start over from a better position. There are alternatives. They aren’t anywhere near as lucrative as the fantasy land that YouTube and Facebook are. You’ll have to pony up some dough and you’ll have to promote yourself and the profits won’t be nearly as good.
Not good enough? Well, the alternative is to go Left. Maybe you can convince people that you’ve seen the light and you no longer believe in the first and second amendments. It worked for the NeverTrumpers. Well, up until now it has. Word on the street is that the paymasters for that operation are going to discontinue that gravy train now that they no longer are trying to win an election. It should be interesting to see what will be going on with the Fake Right in the coming weeks. I expect the screeching to resemble a chorus of scorched cats.
Look, this thing is just beginning. The Justice Department is sure to be sticking its diseased snout into all things having to do with political speech on the right. They’re sure to try and torture us with every horror they can imagine. Maybe it’s a good time to forget about politics and collect scrap metal and rags instead. But for pity’s sake don’t whine that the bad old meanies aren’t playing fair. These people hate you and they’re ecstatic that Dementia Joe and Willie Brown’s Ho will be running the show. Expecting anything but a knife in the back from them is so abysmally stupid that anyone with a shred of dignity and an IQ above room temperature should be embarrassed to do it.
Find people on our side who can provide hosting and payment processing and stop looking like an idiot. The sooner we start using our brains the sooner we start taking a big chunk of the on-line business away from Facebook, Google and the rest of the degenerates on the Left. Who knows, maybe someday Amazon will be coming to us begging us to use some of their unutilized cloud capacity. And wouldn’t it be sweet to tell them to go pound sand up their cloud instead? Sure, it would.
