The Age of Intolerance: Cancel Culture’s War on Free Speech

John W. Whitehead & Nisha Whitehead

“Political correctness is fascism pretending to be manners.”
George Carlin

Cancel culture—political correctness amped up on steroids, the self-righteousness of a narcissistic age, and a mass-marketed pseudo-morality that is little more than fascism disguised as tolerance—has shifted us into an Age of Intolerance, policed by techno-censors, social media bullies, and government watchdogs.

Everything is now fair game for censorship if it can be construed as hateful, hurtful, bigoted or offensive provided that it runs counter to the established viewpoint.

In this way, the most controversial issues of our day—race, religion, sex, sexuality, politics, science, health, government corruption, police brutality, etc.—have become battlegrounds for those who claim to believe in freedom of speech but only when it favors the views and positions they support.

Free speech for me but not for thee” is how my good friend and free speech purist Nat Hentoff used to sum up this double standard.

This tendency to censor, silence, delete, label as “hateful,” and demonize viewpoints that run counter to the cultural elite is being embraced with a near-fanatical zealotry by a cult-like establishment that values conformity and group-think over individuality.

For instance, are you skeptical about the efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines?

Do you have concerns about the outcome of the 2020 presidential election?

Do you subscribe to religious beliefs that shape your views on sexuality, marriage and gender?

Do you, deliberately or inadvertently, engage in misgendering (identifying a person’s gender incorrectly) or deadnaming (using the wrong pronouns or birth name for a transgender person)?

Say yes to any of those questions and then dare to voice those views in anything louder than a whisper and you might find yourself suspended on Twitter, shut out of Facebook, and banned across various social media platforms.

This authoritarian intolerance masquerading as tolerance, civility and love (what comedian George Carlin referred to as “fascism pretending to be manners”) is the end result of a politically correct culture that has become radicalized, institutionalized and tyrannical.

In the past few years, for example, prominent social media voices have been censored, silenced and made to disappear from Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram for voicing ideas that were deemed politically incorrect, hateful, dangerous or conspiratorial.

Most recently, Twitter suspended conservative podcaster Matt Walsh for violating its hate speech policy by sharing his views about transgendered individuals.

The greatest female Jeopardy champion of all time is a man. The top female college swimmer is a man. The first female four star admiral in the Public Health Service is a man. Men have dominated female high school track and the female MMA circuit. The patriarchy wins in the end,”
Walsh tweeted on Dec. 30, 2021

JK Rowling, author of the popular Harry Potter series, has found herself denounced as transphobic and widely shunned for daring to criticize efforts by transgender activists to erode the legal definition of sex and replace it with gender.

Rowling’s essay explaining her views is a powerful, articulate, well-researched piece that not only stresses the importance of free speech and women’s rights while denouncing efforts by trans activists to demonize those who subscribe to “wrongthink,” but also recognizes that while the struggle over gender dysmorphia is real, concerns about safeguarding natal women and girls from abuse are also legitimate.

Ironically enough, Rowling’s shunning included literal book burning. Yet as Ray Bradbury once warned, “There is more than one way to burn a book. And the world is full of people running about with lit matches.”

Indeed, the First Amendment is going up in flames before our eyes, but those first sparks were lit long ago and have been fed by intolerance all along the political spectrum.

Consider some of the kinds of speech being targeted for censorship or outright elimination.

Offensive, politically incorrect and “unsafe” speech: Political correctness has resulted in the chilling of free speech and a growing hostility to those who exercise their rights to speak freely. Where this has become painfully evident is on college campuses, which have become hotbeds of student-led censorship, trigger warnings, microaggressions, and “red light” speech policies targeting anything that might cause someone to feel uncomfortable, unsafe or offended.

Bullying, intimidating speech: Warning that “school bullies become tomorrow’s hate crimes defendants,” the Justice Department has led the way in urging schools to curtail bullying, going so far as to classify “teasing” as a form of “bullying,” and “rude” or “hurtful” “text messages” as “cyberbullying.”

Hateful speech: Hate speech—speech that attacks a person or group on the basis of attributes such as gender, ethnic origin, religion, race, disability, or sexual orientation—is the primary candidate for online censorship. Corporate internet giants Google, Twitter and Facebook continue to re-define what kinds of speech will be permitted online and what will be deleted.

Dangerous, anti-government speech: As part of its ongoing war on “extremism,” the government has partnered with the tech industry to counter online “propaganda” by terrorists hoping to recruit support or plan attacks. In this way, anyone who criticizes the government online can be considered an extremist and will have their content reported to government agencies for further investigation or deleted.

In fact, the Justice Department is planning to form a new domestic terrorism unit to ferret out individuals “who seek to commit violent criminal acts in furtherance of domestic social or political goals.” What this will mean is more surveillance, more pre-crime programs, and more targeting of individuals whose speech may qualify as “dangerous.”

The upshot of all of this editing, parsing, banning and silencing is the emergence of a new language, what George Orwell referred to as Newspeak, which places the power to control language in the hands of the totalitarian state.

Under such a system, language becomes a weapon to change the way people think by changing the words they use.

The end result is mind control and a sleepwalking populace.

In totalitarian regimes—a.k.a. police states—where conformity and compliance are enforced at the end of a loaded gun, the government dictates what words can and cannot be used.

In countries where the police state hides behind a benevolent mask and disguises itself as tolerance, the citizens censor themselves, policing their words and thoughts to conform to the dictates of the mass mind lest they find themselves ostracized or placed under surveillance.

Even when the motives behind this rigidly calibrated reorientation of societal language appear well-intentioned—discouraging racism, condemning violence, denouncing discrimination and hatred—inevitably, the end result is the same: intolerance, indoctrination and infantilism.

The social shunning favored by activists and corporations borrows heavily from the mind control tactics used by authoritarian cults as a means of controlling its members.

As Dr. Steven Hassan writes in Psychology Today:

By ordering members to be cut off, they can no longer participate. Information and sharing of thoughts, feelings, and experiences are stifled. Thought-stopping and use of loaded terms keep a person constrained into a black-and-white, all-or-nothing world. This controls members through fear and guilt.”

This mind control can take many forms, but the end result is an enslaved, compliant populace incapable of challenging tyranny.

As Rod Serling, creator of The Twilight Zone, once observed, “We’re developing a new citizenry, one that will be very selective about cereals and automobiles, but won’t be able to think.”

The problem as I see it is that we’ve allowed ourselves to be persuaded that we need someone else to think and speak for us. And we’ve bought into the idea that we need the government and its corporate partners to shield us from that which is ugly or upsetting or mean.

The result is a society in which we’ve stopped debating among ourselves, stopped thinking for ourselves, and stopped believing that we can fix our own problems and resolve our own differences.

In short, we have reduced ourselves to a largely silent, passive, polarized populace incapable of working through our own problems and reliant on the government to protect us from our fears.

As Nat Hentoff, that inveterate champion of the First Amendment, once observed:

The quintessential difference between a free nation, as we profess to be, and a totalitarian state, is that here everyone, including a foe of democracy, has the right to speak his mind.”

What this means is opening the door to more speech not less, even if that speech is offensive to some.

Understanding that freedom for those in the unpopular minority constitutes the ultimate tolerance in a free society, James Madison, the author of the Bill of Rights, fought for a First Amendment that protected the “minority” against the majority, ensuring that even in the face of overwhelming pressure, a minority of one—even one who espouses distasteful viewpoints—would still have the right to speak freely, pray freely, assemble freely, challenge the government freely, and broadcast his views in the press freely.

We haven’t done ourselves—or the nation—any favors by becoming so fearfully polite, careful to avoid offense, and largely unwilling to be labeled intolerant, hateful or closed-minded that we’ve eliminated words, phrases and symbols from public discourse.

We have allowed our fears — fear for our safety, fear of each other, fear of being labeled racist or hateful or prejudiced, etc. — to trump our freedom of speech and muzzle us far more effectively than any government edict could.

Ultimately the war on free speech—and that’s exactly what it is: a war being waged by Americans against other Americans—is a war that is driven by fear.

By bottling up dissent, we have created a pressure cooker of stifled misery and discontent that is now bubbling over and fomenting even more hate, distrust and paranoia among portions of the populace.

By muzzling free speech, we are contributing to a growing underclass of Americans who are being told that they can’t take part in American public life unless they “fit in.”

The First Amendment is a steam valve. It allows people to speak their minds, air their grievances and contribute to a larger dialogue that hopefully results in a more just world. When there is no steam valve to release the pressure, frustration builds, anger grows, and people become more volatile and desperate to force a conversation.

Be warned: whatever we tolerate now—whatever we turn a blind eye to—whatever we rationalize when it is inflicted on others will eventually come back to imprison us, one and all.

Eventually, “we the people” will be the ones in the crosshairs.

At some point or another, depending on how the government and its corporate allies define what constitutes “hate” or “extremism, “we the people” might all be considered guilty of some thought crime or other.

When that time comes, there may be no one left to speak out or speak up in our defense.

After all, it’s a slippery slope from censoring so-called illegitimate ideas to silencing truth. Eventually, as George Orwell predicted, telling the truth will become a revolutionary act.

We are on a fast-moving trajectory.

In other words, whatever powers you allow the government and its corporate operatives to claim now, for the sake of the greater good or because you like or trust those in charge, will eventually be abused and used against you by tyrants of your own making.

This is the tyranny of the majority against the minority marching in lockstep with technofascism.

If Americans don’t vociferously defend the right of a minority of one to subscribe to, let alone voice, ideas and opinions that may be offensive, hateful, intolerant or merely different, then we’re going to soon find that we have no rights whatsoever (to speak, assemble, agree, disagree, protest, opt in, opt out, or forge our own paths as individuals).

No matter what our numbers might be, no matter what our views might be, no matter what party we might belong to, it will not be long before “we the people” constitute a powerless minority in the eyes of a power-fueled fascist state driven to maintain its power at all costs.

We are almost at that point now.

Free speech is no longer free.

On paper — at least according to the US Constitution — we are technically free to speak.

In reality, however, we are only as free to speak as a government official — or corporate entities such as Facebook, Google or YouTube—may allow.

The steady, pervasive censorship creep that is being inflicted on us by corporate tech giants with the blessing of the powers-that-be threatens to bring about a restructuring of reality straight out of Orwell’s 1984, where the Ministry of Truth polices speech and ensures that facts conform to whatever version of reality the government propagandists embrace.

Orwell intended 1984 as a warning. Instead, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, it is being used as a dystopian instruction manual for socially engineering a populace that is compliant, conformist and obedient to Big Brother.

The police state could not ask for a better citizenry than one that carries out its own censorship, spying and policing.

the problem quite apparently… is a matter of so called education, particularly that of the, ahem, ‘higher’ kind… or rather the complete programing and brainwashing of homo imbecilius by the slow introduction over the last 100 years or so, of an inverted intellectual/moral code…. this mind cancer/psychological programming has slowly created the current world of cowardly cognitive dissonants…

in better days, for example when the common peasant class were happily entertained by Marlowe and Shakespeare the ability to imagine and critically think had still been retained by most and infact was essential for a cultural life that included the meta-physical and existence within ‘nature’, a homogeneity… essential for productive healthy ‘society’..

nowadays most of the herd are no more than infants driven by emotion… grasping at fads and sustained by cheap plastic chinese landfill and the worship of mindless surgically altered imbeciles… they are without grounding or higher purpose.. they are no longer of necessity..

these people have now been delivered into the hands of a statist media plex owned by unrestrained and evil men that intend to grind most of them into mincemeat..(always the ‘masonic’ plan for the ‘new world’, e.g without you, the profane)…

these evil and hollow men have always viewed the masses with suspicion and revulsion and now seek to redefine reality by negating Truth to create the inverted inhuman world they require…

most of the common folk and that includes the rich peasants.. seem to be beyond reason and at best apathetic.. indeed they are simply ‘products’ of the system.. mere ‘consumers’ linked together in a synthetic network and of course with that characteristic seem no more real to the modern ‘elites’ than the so called A.I with which these reprobates wish to replace them..

There’s no place for bullying anywhere and that cannot be compared to free speech. But to start banning and censoring opinion is a form of bullying is it not. It is bullying using Government who has the monopoly of force.
Some seem to forget adults are not children.

While it is good to prevent children form being bullied at school has nothing to do with the issue of free speech.

There are other ways of stopping bullies, the problem its become available only to the wealthy. We the commoners are powerless to prevent the bullies with money from bullying the public. These bullies have now managed to capture Governments using blackmail and extortion. Thanks to the idea of Private Public Partnerships. That is the tyranny of the minority who are “marching in lockstep with technofascism”?

I travelled from France to Britain earlier this month. Prior to that I had been in very Covid-repressive Greece. I am still unvaxxed, though I see that officially about 52 million people in the UK are supposed to have had at least one jab. I had to isolate for 10 days after returning and take tests, both of which were negative. But the really bizarre thing was that I had to travel up to Peterborough from London, perhaps 80 miles away, to get the test kits. While supposedly isolating. Go figure.

I would advise all those who consider teasing to be ‘harmless’ to be exposed to it relentlessly without any counterbalancing friendly behaviour.

I know full well what physical bullying felt like (had it aged 7 – 11 mainly); I know full well what viscious taunting about physical stature (on in the eyes of the taunters, lack of it at particular ages) is like, experiencing it particularly from aged 13 – 16; and I know what withering belittling of dissident views feels like ( had it continuously from a parent for the best part of 40 years).

It’s very easy to call something harmless when you are not the focus of the activities. It’s very easy to call something harmless when you are big enough to stamp it out.

It’s less easy to call something harmless when it is part of everyday life for years and years, when your sole strategy for coping with it all is deemed by adults to be ‘turning the other cheek’.

I have carried out a 50 year trial to see if ‘non-violent resistance’ is effective in changing the behaviour of bullies, taunters etc etc. The answer is that it is utterly useless.

People who engage in such behaviour respond to physical violence, to withering verbal put downs in public and to financial/social ostracism through making everyone aware of how they behave.They don’t respond to appeals to decency…..

Even then, when they join the Security Services, their behaviours are tolerated by the Establishment, since the Establishment is jam packed full of bullies, psychopaths, sociopaths, gaslighters and smearers. You will find several dozen gaslighting articles published every day by the MSM and they consider it to be normal behaviour…..

I remain extremely confident that sentencing someone to 10 years of relentless bullying and gaslighting without any right to bring such behaviour to an end would prove pretty conclusively to the ‘harmless bantz’ brigade that they too are susceptible to suicidal thoughts, that their levels of violent thoughts will go up, that their snapping point before assaulting women/children might go down etc etc.

You will never come up with solutions when the bullies are the ones proposing them, since then the solutions will only consider the needs of the bullies…..

Idiots say stupid shit like “love everything”, “don’t judge”, promote (particularly self-) censorship, yet hypocritically not loving and constantly judging.

That’s how you put malicious idiots on notice. ALWAYS use YOUR judgment, not theirs. As every choice, opinion is judgment and the process becomes the verdict.

The simplification of the problem is neccessary for a forum such as this. Children do need to be protected from bullying as they can fail to achieve proper adulthood with intense bullying. Fair enough.

If, as an adult, you are subject to bullying from anyone, then you already have all the protection you need. You are an adult, you make your own decisions, which include “Why am I still talking to this bully?” and you can decide to not engage that bully, even if that means you have to leave town. Trying to change the bully into a nice person is your decision, you are an adult.

As for whole departments of state being full of bullies: the world is full of bullies. As an adult you are designed to navigate this quagmire. If you can’t do it then maybe that is Darwinism in action.

People, in general, do not benefit from having their feelings protected, that is why preventing hate speech etc is a bad idea. If it had been proven to benefit society in the long run, it would have been built into civilisation as a necessity: it does not help us. You are better off facing your fears and running away if needs be.

Truth is beneficial, it makes us face our failures. Protection of weak people just makes them weaker and becomes an easy option for those who are not weak but do not want to fight. Life is tough: get used to it.

I think perhaps what you’re saying falls very close to, if not in, the category of “blame the victim.”

Society in general seems to be based on two admittedly contradictory premises: to protect the weak from the strong; and to overcome weaker societies and thereby increase what they have.

Though society doesn’t always practice, it does preach, for instance, protecting children from adults – sometimes even when those adults are the parents. If someone seeks to harm a child, does it really benefit the child to stand aside and let it happen?

I agree completely that no “teasing” is harmless – and that includes the “friendly teasing” between individuals who get along very well and socialize or work together.

“Teasing” always poisons a relationship because there’s always the question lurking: Is this how they really feel about me? Because if it is, I don’t want them for friends.

To this day, I’m not sure how I escaped much bullying when I was a kid – I would have been a prime target for it. Yet, through pure luck or something, I was rarely the object of bullying or even much teasing.

This is going to sound really stupid – but somehow there was always someone else around who the bullies went after. Maybe part of it was that I went to Catholic school for eight years – and in Catholic school, being smart (or considered smart) was actually a plus. And the nuns kept a pretty tight rein on the kids.

Hell, I attended parochial school too.

FWIW, I was certain that your last sentence beginning “And the nuns…” would conclude with “… were the bullies.”

To add a halfhearted attempt at fairness: this certainly wasn’t monolithic. Some of the Sisters of Mercy were nice enough, but there were always a few “tough love” enforcer types.

They may have been leftovers from my father’s generation, when the nuns really did whack kids on the knuckles with metal rulers.

One brute in particular truly resembled a fullback in drag. Years later, when I learned the term “butch”, she came to mind.

Actually, I was lucky. I only had one downright mean nun for a teacher. I can’t think of her without recalling a line from a Benny Hill skit: “Everyone has a right to be ugly – but she abuses the privilege!”

I know that’s a mean thing to say – and the politically correct would skewer me for it. Anyway, I think I only got the ruler across the knuckles once. And I didn’t flinch, so that endeared me to my fellow classmates.

I was sometimes bullied and learned that the best response was to hit anyone who started it. It did tend to deter people if you showed you would stand up for yourself. I also cultivated a reputation for unpredictability. I was not particularly popular but they did not f++k with me. It taught me a lot about how the way society operates.

This argumentation is wrong because it is sentiment without rationality that lacks recognition of the manifold distinctions of what is going on in reality and their consequences for the individual, the community, the culture

We can all agree that a parent bullying their own child whether verbally or physically is both horrific and unforgivable. This is an unequal power relationship. There needs to widespread education of parents and measures to protect children from Adults bullying them.

But outside this domain – I believe this sentimentality to be counter-productive for all concerned.

Just as every child needs to learn literacy, every child needs to learn be resilient.

We also need to make that distinction between words and actions. We can all agree that a Child being physically bullied even by other children needs to be contained within narrow fields.

Words are another matter altogether. Any measures we take in this regard are certain to have unforeseeable consequences that will be far worse than what we are attempting to prevent. Look around, we end up creating mendacious monsters, who become either masters of deception or eternal victims – and that is only the beginning of the perversities.

The ensuing culture becomes one where everyone must tip toe around each other because who knows where the minefield might be and who you might offend. This is a culture of wall to wall timidity and mendacity – just look around.

Here everyone is induced to become a liar because victimhood becomes the universal joker card that anyone can pull at will. Public discourse becomes a compassion pissing contest completely devoid of reality.

I am currently reading the book of a man who – himself a National Socialist – opposed Hitler’s National Fascism and was mistreated in a concentration camp for 8 years because of it. His analyses fit 1:1 to today’s time, only that today there is no longer a Führer, but the media, which control the masses by allowing or suppressing opinions, like one diverts and channels a river – and yet does not really know beforehand what the consequences will be. Or one doesn’t care.

Yeah, I dig this article.

Coz toxic endocrine disruption shit is pushed in society, and there’s massive ignorance of it. And it’s serious. Obviously associated with idiocy, disease, homosexuality, etc. It’s physics okay?

Don’t try to tell me, hypocritically, I’m hateful because I try address prominent, common societal issues relating to malice and degeneration. That shit is not going to fly.

I’ll copy/paste something I typed a while ago.

“Hey, what do fluoridated, chlorinated water/air (in general excessive fluorine and chlorine), in general polluted air, supposed “food”, chemtrails (very broad btw), toothpaste, PFOs, PFOAs, cosmetics, low sun exposure, low iodine, sunblock, detergents/sanitation products, an enormous amount of “medications”, shit like ddt, atrazine, glyphosate other herbicides, pesticides, homogenized GMO soy and such, EMF, pthalates, BPA, vaccines, shit in toys, packaging, clothing, etc have in common?

Oh that’s right, they’re all super common, even glamourized, super marketed (or imposed), they’re all toxic and have very majorly enormous amounts of endocrine disruption and dysfunction effects! Physical, immune, developmental, mental, hormonal, behavioural, reproductive, etc damage! Things like faggotry, diabetes, RTIs, “viruses”, cancers, retardation, etc. You know, the good stuff. Because they want a nice mentally retarded, sickened sort of “metrosexual” slave class, the zombiedronerobosheepclones. Zombiedronerobosheepclones can’t recognize or consider things though, so they’ll forever be clueless.”

But still, I think often people seem to ignore the other obvious half of that dystopian or utopian hellhole (depending on your preference) vision. Orwell’s 1984 wasn’t particularly wrong (he was just documenting the system), but, imagine it marriaged to Brave New World.

Surely you can see aspects of both at play?

Even when the motives behind this rigidly calibrated reorientation of societal language appear well-intentioned—discouraging racism, condemning violence, denouncing discrimination and hatred

Only a child would believe that the motives behind controlling other peoples’ speech could possibly be well intentioned. The motive and intention are control and the standards are those of the controller. Where is the “well intentioned” coming from? Removing freedom of speech cannot be well intentioned.

gender dysmorphia is real

Is it really? Real as in exists or real as in is a great political tool? It looks to me like just another “anti-semitism” to me, where we create laws for problems that don’t exist then hand out cash to NGOs who use government-approved battons to police the people of the western world and force them to believe in this made up “problem”.

But don’t say that to a trannie, he is likely to get very angry, as we have seen on youtube: most unladylike.

By ordering members to be cut off, they can no longer participate.

But, they must make the most of it because inevitably the trannies will go back to care within mental health institutions.

It’s always important to remember that “cancel culture” began in the #metoo era and that some of the people that got canceled were actual scumbags and criminals– really bad people who deserved the opprobrium.

Before you think I’m some apologists for censorship let me remind you of two such “canceled” people who truly deserved it: Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby.

With these two beauties in mind it’s important to remember that the mere act of being canceled should not implicitly vindicate the worst offenders– and by offenders I mean literal criminal offenders who abused people or worse.

Since that period the heavy lifting that was once the work of Twitter mobs was picked up by big tech and the mainstream media. As the woke activism that birthed the phenomenon was superseded by a much more cynical, tactical exercise of power politics the definition of what deserved “cancellation” was expanded to its present-day hideously bloated state, as rightly described in the article, where a single comment about gender or Covid or what-have-you leads to banishment, degradation, and hate.

The righteous anger at a Weinstein or a Cosby was directed all over to lesser offenders, to the extent that all transgressors of the PC were functionally labeled Weinsteins or Cosbys, with no gradation allowed. Louis CK, a hilarious comedian but a definite creep and serial masturbator, was directly equated to Weinstein, a rapist. Neither man’s actions were good, but they were not equally bad. No differences between the two’s acts were allowed to be considered. Soon Aziz Ansari followed with some considerably lesser misstep than Louis CK’s; again, though, he too was canceled and treated as a horrible ogre on par with Weinstein. And so on, reductio ad absurdum.

What I’m saying is that, #1, “cancel culture” has changed since its inception; it is now run entirely for powerful interests seeking ideological uniformity. In its infancy it was not quite so simple. #2, some famous people do very bad things and deserve public scorn. Like, oh say, for instance, Bill Gates. Canceling him for his connections to Jeffrey Epstein or eugenics, should such an improbability occur, would be a good thing, right?

#3 overgeneralization is the lifeblood of cancel culture. But critics of cancel culture also tend to overgeneralize about it, and should remember the complex, shifting nature of the phenomenon.

Hey, I’ve been banned like, almost everywhere, shit, at times even my ISP ip ranges, attacks on my ISP. I’m that annoying.

I mean, at one point I mentioned some things about RTIs, viruses relating to sunlight deficiency and I was completely censored from commenting on youtube. Even on supposed “truther” sites, I often (maybe even invariably) get banned or censored.

To me, that’s validation.

As the saying goes “The truth doesn’t mind being questioned, lies don’t like being questioned”…or something like that.

“Cancel culture” has existed since political, “scientific” or religious “authority”. It is not new.

The guise is just slightly different, often more obfuscation, false, fraudulent attempted justifications, more convoluted and more saturated deflective bullshit.

I’m just saying hey, it’s limbo, and limbo is a reflection process. People are struggling with that, as they are in denial. Denial is a river which Anubis points you towards, and you cannot argue with Anubis. Because he’s dead and with me, kinda eternally.

In the past few years, for example, prominent social media voices have been censored, silenced and made to disappear from Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram for voicing ideas that were deemed politically incorrect…

Whilst John Whitehead publishes interesting essays touching on important topics, I find it interesting that he similarly continues to promote Amazon.
Driving more profits to the Big Asset Management firms & Big Banks, whom now operate as a true cartel, and are leading the charge of continued & increasing stifling of freedoms, justice, rights, etc.

The largest shareholders of each Amazon (amzn), Facebook (fb), Alphabet (Youtube) (googl), Instagram (fb), etc. include:
Vanguard, BlackRock, State Street, Fidelity (fmr), the Capital Group, T Rowe Price, et al.

So, by engaging with, and sending more profits to Amazon and ultimately their largest shareholders, Whitehead is supporting & enabling the exact same system he constantly gripes about.

How stupid is it to willingly work with a company, with owners that are doing so much danger to the liberties, rights and justice of most everyone, but continually gripe about it?
Whitehead is helping create the exact same neo-feudal system he chastises.

In feudal times of past the Serfs were relegated to working for the Feudal Lords, on their lands, eeking out a small slice of profit as they continued to support their Masters, and make then ever-richer, and ever-more powerful.
In the neo-feudal era most everyone are relegated to merely working the digital properties owned by those neo-feudal Lords, as those Seller Serfs seek to eek out a small slice of profits.

The Philosophy of Universalizability:
The concept of universalizability was set out by the 18th-century German philosopher Immanuel Kant as part of his work Groundwork of the Metaphysic of Morals. It is part of the first formulation of his categorical imperative, which states that the only morally acceptable maxims of our actions are those that could rationally be willed to be universal law.

In other words, are the activities you engage in universally sustainable if everyone were to do the same?
Whilst Whitehead may only be one Author selling an Amazon, driving few profits their way, multiply that by several million other Sellers.
And the hundreds of millions of products.
This is why Amazon is doing US$386.064 billion (2020) in yearly revenue, making people like Bezos, and that CARTEL of Big Asset Management firms & Big Banks, whom continue to gobble up more & more companies, operating as a virtually monopoly, so wealthy.
And where wealth is often used as a tool of power, these people maintain massive power over the economy, politics & governance.

SO, JUDGE THEYSELF FIRST, WHITEHEAD!
YOU ARE A MAJOR PART OF THE ONGOING PROBLEM!

Let Freedom SingHudson Jazz Festival 2022Sunday, February 13, 3pm

Whether it was blues, folk, gospel, or R&B, the civil rights movement drew strength, focus, and power through music. Let Freedom Sing (dir. Jon Goodman, 2009) is a formidable chronicle of the individuals who cried out, in song, against inequality, racism, poverty, and war. With never-before-seen footage and affecting accounts from the Mississippi Freedom Riders, who sang every day as they risked life and limb, to GRAMMY-winning artists who continue to pen inspired lyrics capable of moving a nation, this documentary explores the civil rights movement and its continuing impact on music, politics, and culture. 

COVID-19 SAFETY: Hudson Hall requires all ticket holders attending live, in-person events to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19. In light of the recent surge in cases and in keeping with CDC recommendations, Hudson Hall now also requires proof of a COVID-19 booster shot for all those eligible to receive it.

https://hudsonhall.org/event/let-freedom-sing-community-sing-film-screening/

==========

Letter I sent to these creeps:

Hi Everyone at Hudson Hall,

I was looking forward to attending the “Let Freedom Sing” Jazz Festival and was completely shocked when I went to the homepage to reserve a seat only to discover that you require “vaccinations” and even “boosters” in order to attend.

What an insult to any and all who struggled for civil rights- have you no sense of historical incongruity? Are you blind to the blatant  hypocrisy you have embraced?

First off let it be known that vaccine passports breach Article 6 of the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights. In mandating such passports you are in direct violation of Article 6.

If that is of no consequence to you, can you explain how it is that you justify supporting publicly-traded pharmaceutical companies with extensive criminal records?

For but one example, Pfizer’s extensive criminal history (convicted of 71 felony offenses) , their clear ties to the CDC and FDA, their influence over the media, their indemnification from liability, would seem to speak to the urgency in avoiding mandating any Pfizer product.

Beyond the just cause of distancing oneself from criminal enterprises (AZ and J&J are also serial felons) there is no logic, ethical consideration or science available to justify forcing anyone to receive an experimental product made by habitually criminal companies in order to attend any event.

Mandating compliance with an experimental medical product as a condition to participate in society and segregating those who will not comply is neither virtuous or ethical.

That this is being done as a condition to attend an event celebrating civil rights is beyond the pale.

Being forced to accept a pseudo-medical social segregation system as our “New Normal” hardly honors those who struggled against segregation.

If you are to be considered worthy of holding an event that celebrates human rights of any kind it is imperative that you immediately rescind all mandates that are discriminatory.

In solidarity with those who seek economic and social justice,

Max

The Australian government appears to have locked itself into one of those secret binding contracts with the drug companies. You might recall, the Governments medical advisers told the PM to discontinue the AZ brand because of blood clotting. It had been restricted to the 65s and over. The Pm did the opposite, made it available for use on all adults. According to the press the PM was concerned about the damage to his career if he dumped a product purchased sight unseen etc, and costing millions of taxpayers money.
Seems the politicians in charge* are going to tough it out. They’ve committed taxpayers money, and their careers come before the many injuries and deaths those 14 shots will cause.

*Someone has suggested that as there’s only a few politicians making the decisions we should replace ‘government’ with ‘politicians in charge’ (PICs) – to focus people’s attention on those few politicians, not let them hide behind ‘the government.’

Sadly, NSW Health is today reporting the deaths of 20 people with COVID-19; 12 men and eight women.

Two people were aged in their 50s, six people were aged in their 70s, seven people were aged in their 80s, four people were in their 90s, and one person was 100+.

Of the 20 people who died; 14 people were vaccinated against COVID-19 and six people were not vaccinated.

Of the 18 people over the age of 65, 13 people were vaccinated and five were not vaccinated. Older age is a significant risk factor for serious illness and death for COVID-19, particularly when combined with significant underlying health conditions.

The two people who were in their 50s had serious underlying health conditions. One person was vaccinated and one was not vaccinated.

And while I loathe to gloat about people getting sick, that ghastly WHO shill Mary Louise Mcclaws has a fucking brain tumour.

For years i worked for a supermarket chain. At least once a month the young female manager of my department would return from The Office wiping tears away. She’d been bullied by the Store Manager again. Who could she complain to ? No One, for the company protected itself. Other department managers would close ranks, or pretend not to notice The Bullying… I was called to The Office twice and bullied by The Manager in the presence of department managers. There were no witnesses.
Bullying at work – it’s always inferred it’s workers bullying co-workers.
Bullying at work by employers, by managers – good luck if you can get a hearing. Good luck if someone who can do something about it believes you..

Used to be, during the post WW2 decades, kids could get-in up to six years playing
before having to submit to the obedience training and regimentation called schooling. Once committed to that institution playtime was slowly whittled down, and schooling even reached into free time, restricting it with piles of homework…
Over the years the state’s claims on the young’s time has penetrated deeper. Born free, no sooner able to walk, pre-schooling intrudes to regulate and regiment the kids time. And it’s all done in their interests. The state’s ideological justification for the repression is it’s claimed Concern for their Future. ( “The Future” – That pie in the sky place where you’ll be Free. “The Future”, that justification for Every repression, and ‘austerity measure’.)….
It appears that the South Australia State, as a solution to the teacher shortage caused by Omicron, is to institute, and regulate, across the board Homeschooling for the young – concerned as it is for the kids “Futures”. So little Jenny, and little Johnny will be sat at home in front of a screen, 6 or more hours each day. Their time regulated by a machine. Their attendance monitored, and their attentions regularly checked by tests, tests, tests.
Should the kids wag “School”, even take an unscheduled pee break, parents will be warned of the consequences… Wag too often, The Covid Police will be knocking on the front door, demanding explanation, advising parents of Consequences.
Should Jenny and Johnny continue to buck being chained the an electronic device, want to play to work-off the build-up of lively energies, The Covid State’s psychiatrists have an arsenal of calming drugs they can prescribe…
It appears thousand of Queensland teachers have refused to take part in The Medical Experiment…The Queensland state must no doubt be keeping a keen eye on how South Australia resolves it’s teacher crisis…

The scenario i’ve outlined is of The State using ‘covid’ (‘omicron’) as cover to implement a homeschooling regime, getting rid of teachers. All lessons will be programed, no teachers involved, only monitors.
During the 1970s, when University Higher Education was free in Australia, two of my communist party comrades were studying (Social) Welfare Work, and a couple were teachers. During the heights of the HIV-AIDS scare campaign, mid-1980s, the Social (Welfare) Worker who patrolled the streets of the seedier side of town at night, with the task of “getting the (homeless) kids off the streets” (Laudable) was a member of the local Anarchist Federation. They were all paid State Functionaries, carrying out duties for The State. I call them the institutional left…
What’s that all got to do with ‘homeschooling’ ? I’m unclear. I’ll get back to you…
However, as a teacher do you think you’d have felt at home, been able to function as a teacher, in A.S.Neill’s ‘Summerhill’ ?

Summerhill predated Montessori, was radically different to any of the ‘New Education’ experiments, and it wasnt an experiment. ‘Summerhill’ by A.S.Neill might still be in print. If you read a copy you’ll find it’s nothing
like what you think education or schooling is.
Noticeable, there was no mention of kids in your initial comment.. Do you think any kid really enjoys stuck at home, chained to a computer ?
By ‘homeschooling’ most would think one or both parents replaced teachers. My understanding of the news report: the state intends keeping control of the kids time and ‘studies’. Parents will be solely enforcers of the system the state puts in place…

I did the primary school post graduate teacher training course in UK in the early 90s as a mature student when the ‘Outcomes’ based National Curriculum came out. I didn’t understand at the time why I felt so revolted by the whole thing. It was like a diffrent language, totally at odds with plain simple understanding.

A curriculum is surely what you teach, the outcomes are what the child makes of it. My fondest memory is being told off for telling the children that Pakistan was an Islamic State! I quit not long after and went back to work never to be a village school teacher.

Here in The States, it feels a bit like a systematic take-down of just about every system in order to usher in the Reset-ReOrder-CreativeDestruction-Agenda. 2 years of constant fear driven agitprop has worn down even the most staunch Covidians. The school I work at is falling part, and it’s not even close to being the worst case. The goal posts are on wheels and get shuffled at a moments in order to keep everyone off balance.

I’ve just learned that The Barnes Foundation, a museum in Philadelphia, will not allow unvaccinated visitors. I had planned to visit this month with a couple of friends.

https://www.visitphilly.com/things-to-do/attractions/the-barnes-foundation/

So, in New York City, I can no longer attend plays at The Irish Repertory Theater, see movies at The Film Forum or the IFC, attend an opera at the Met, or visit The Frick or MOMA museums, or The Morgan Library.

Now I can’t go to a museum in Philafuckingdelphia.

I’m so happy I live so close to NYC and Philadelphia.

I wonder when I’ll be banned from supermarkets or no longer be allowed to ride my bicycle. Or not allowed to jog in the park around the corner from my house. Or drive to the Withlacoochee Bike Trail in Florida.

I’ve just finished reading C.J. Hopkins’ book Zone 23 about a future in which corporations run everything and everyone is drugged—a future into which we are rapidly heading. It’s a great book, but I feel the crack of optimism at the novel’s conclusion is illusory.

OPEN LETTER TO SOCIAL MEDIA OWNERS & MANAGERS

The United Kingdom’s Metropolitan police (the UK equivalent of the FBI) have launched a major criminal investigation into mRNA c-19 vaccine-related corporate crimes and threats to public health.

The alleged crimes being investigated include gross negligence manslaughter, corporate manslaughter, murder, conspiracy to murder, genocide and crimes against humanity.

Most of you will likely (a repetitive pattern by now) stop reading here and proceed to delete the message, and my account.

You will continue ignoring any information you encounter unless it comes from your pre-approved sources of information, in whose veracity and integrity you apparently have a blind faith in.

You will continue being led to avoid reality by imagining “alt right” and “Trump supporter , flat earther, tin foil hat wearer” sub-human enemies on every instance of encountering information that contradicts your pre-digested and approved narrative revolving around the WHO’s revised definitions of “pandemic” and “herd immunity” and the fatuous, evil lie of “asymptomatic”, used to describe healthy people.

This game will fail, and you will fall with it unless you change your tune YESTERDAY.

You have actively spread misinformation that has lead and is still leading to massive harm that amounts to crimes against humanity and genocide, and you have actively suppressed information that would have prevented this harm.

I am not just talking about the harmful mRNA injections (gene therapy branded as a vaccine, based on a computer model rather than any actual virus), but about the psychological and economical damage inflicted on unknown millions of people by lockdowns ( a term straight out of the prison system) and dehumanising, oxygen depriving, plastic fiber shedding, non biodegradable pollutant USELESS SURGICAL MASKS imposed on even young children by do-gooder parents and teachers.

You have supported the establishment of a new fascism, sold as the “new normal”. You are the real fascists here.

Each of you will be individually held responsible for colluding in these crimes. Reddit or Facebook or google will not protect you, because you are their disposable pawn.

If you have a shred of decency left I strongly and urgently recommend to each one of you to listen to Michael Yeadon, Robert Malone and the many other actual medical / science authorities who you have censored and actively defamed.

Consider this as a legal threat or warning or whatever. Proceed to ban me. I could care less about a throw away account on a site I don’t need in my life.

Stop being the parasites that nobody needs in their life and re-join humanity. Or stay at home alone with a useless mask on, forever- it is pointless because your salvation injections, your muzzles and prison lockdowns have f**king failed AND YOU KNOW IT.

And they have not only failed but created a situation that is much more destructive than what they purported to prevent: a disease that is no serious threat to over 99% of the population according to your own data! AND YOU KNOW IT TOO.

THIS IS NOT ADDRESSED TO THE OFF-G STAFF of course!

Arid Australia real reason we can’t support immigration

  • Letters to the editor

Test results delayed
Last Monday my wife was tested for COVID-19 at an ACT testing site. Even though ACT Health is advising we should get her results within 48 hours, four days later we were still waiting. I have been tested four times and got the results in about six hours
It’s now Friday and if we don’t get a result today we will have to stay in Isolation until Monday. What a farce. If she did have COVID-19 she would be due to be released from isolation late on Monday in any case.
As “seniors” we are both triple-vaccinated.

Meanwhile, over the same week, we have had Novak Djokovic in Australia unvaccinated and apparently having lied on his immigration forms (despite have been here often enough to know how to fill out the paperwork correctly).
Why are my wife and myself bothering to obey the government’s instructions while Djokovic has been able to thumb his nose at them?

Respitory illnesses are not contagious so they cannot be caught. So there can no immunity either natural or chemical. There are only disease conditions, so said Florence Nightingale. Or Terrain according to Antoine Bechamp and others. Respitory illnesses are processes of detoxification. Which is why the vaccinated are the sick ones – they are detoxing a poisonous substance from their bodies. Reputable health professionals who can explain the process are only a couple of mouse clicks away, if you really are interested in an answer to your question.

jimbojames,
There’s neither immunity nor any real vaccine to any corona virus. Flu isn’t a corona virus& studies say vaccines are only 10-30% effective and only against that year’s strain.

Down side to influenza vaccine: It can give you Epstein Barre virus; I had a friend who went into coma w it w/in 6 hours of getting the shot.

I read a study somewhere that taking the flu vaccine 3 years in a row increases something dire; can’t remember & too lazy to look it up– Alzheimer’s I think.

Keeping your immunity up is the best protection– Vitamin D is aided by Vit K and Magnesium– and of course C. I take these chronically & haven’t had even sniffles in 27 years.

As none of the so called viruses have ever been isolated to study them who knows, but even in the worst flu seasons the rules have only ever been if sick stay in bad, and if sneezing people are told to stand back because their mates ”have the lurgy”, this rancid hysteria now is the worst kind of bullshit.

Marilyn, of course viruses have been isolated– for 100 years we have been able to isolate viruses. Now we are able to isolate more of them. Some of the genes of human beings are derived from viruses.

Just as we have communities of bacteria in various parts of the body– for example the gut microbiome– we also have communities of viruses, called viromes.

Viruses exist all over the Earth in the soil & water and many have been isolated, including many that cause illness in humans:

“Virus isolation is essential for the provision of a full diagnostic virology service. Present methods are time consuming, expensive and relatively inflexible for routine use. Our objective was to audit our existing virus isolation system and to develop a sensitive, flexible virus isolation system which could be adapted for use in a busy routine laboratory which is required to provide a service for a wide range of clinical situations. We carried out a pilot study which compared conventional roller tube monolayer cultures to a microplate system using cells inoculated in suspension and showed that the microplate method using extra cell lines could provide a more sensitive system for virus isolation. This system was adapted for routine use using six cell lines inoculated in suspension and the results are presented for 2610 specimens for virus isolation and 972 for Clostridium difficile toxin (CDT) detection. There were 516 viruses isolated and 229 specimens positive for CDT using this system. Polioviruses (92), echoviruses (35), coxsackieviruses (15) and untyped enteroviruses (13) were isolated in RMK, E6-vero and RD cells. Adenoviruses (137) were isolated in HEp2 and E6-vero cells. Herpes simplex virus (HSV) was isolated from 149 specimens in E6-vero, FCL and HFF9 cells. Myxoviruses. . . .”

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/9002075/

You are being deceived by a flat-earth intelligence operation to cause you to discredit yourself. It is suspicious or at least not understood why no one seems to have an isolated sample of the covid virus, but this cannot disprove existence of covid disease because so many honest, forthright and independent doctors are looking at it & treating it. These doctors MUST be honest cuz they are opposing all the exaggerated covid measures, often at great personal expense.

Try to get beyond dogmatism on this subject.

The attitude of seniors has surprised me. Many lived through flu outbreaks of 57 and 68. So I thought they would deal with this more rationally.

Quite the opposite. The young seem far more clued up. My theory, the elderly grew up in times when politicians and authority were respected so hard to shake off. Today I found myself in a conversation where my mum was more or less defending high profile peados, like Andrew, (The girls were 17 and asked for it etc) me, as a man arguing we should no longer tolerate it.

The younger, for all their faults and poor education grew up knowing politicians were clowns and peados. Over generalisation maybe but perhaps one worthy theory for thought.

Marilyn, I DO remember measles, mumps & chicken pox. You were contagious before you became more than slightly sick, so kids wd get it in waves– but lots of em had already had it, so not too many at once. You were sick for more than a day or two– at least a week. Measles affected your eyes; you had to stay in a darkened room.

Everyone knew at that time that it made your immune system strong to get the “childhood diseases.” No harm done– except Mom’s preferred kids to get them while they were little so they’d get less sick. Also boys had to get mumps before the pre-pubertal growth spurt so it wdn’t settle n the gonads instead of the glands at the jaw.

There was no quarantining for these diseases. On the contrary Mom wd send little Johnny to stay overnight w his sick friend so he’d get it.

Yep, only the sick stayed home and we were only sick for a few days, then it was out in the sun climbing trees. I had them all without the MMR and then had a whooping cough jab and got whooping cough at 14.

Well, we are socially conditioned from birth, to be compliant and to trust government aren’t we? The only way to obtain academic credentials is by adherring to a strict code of what is and isn’t “reseach” or “qualified opinion”. Some so much so, they are literally incapable of deviating from that conditioning. So many academics who trust corrupted institutions, or other academics – it’s endemic and, unable to entertain the thought these formerly trusted sources may be or could be corrupted. They’re actually worse than most…

There is a lot of crazy stuff being promoted by some activists that actually plays into the oppressors agenda too…

Personally, I have found it really interest how many activists seems disinterested in the latest developments with Mike Yeadon and the Corona Investigative Committee. A large group in Aus apparently won’t be supporting the Trial of the Century because they figure Aussies authorities can handle the situation; even though they’ve failed to do so, thus far.

So, if you really do want this to end, please promote the Trial of the Century.

The things that I have realised from deleting my social media accounts and getting rid of my smartphone are that none of this horseshit is vaguely relevant in the real world. Real people talk like real people, with all the offensive humour, vugarity and foul mirth that real people always have. So there’s your answer.

The “woke” “cancel culture” movement so perfectly fits elite agendas that one can’t help but imagine that it was either spawned at, or at least once spawned vigorously supported, out of the bowels of Langley by the CIA. It’s just a bit “too perfect” a tool with which to control all public debate.

Here in the States we now have the absurdity of the once admirable ACLU – American Civil Liberties Union – an organization that once supported the free speech rights of Nazis to publicly march in a Jewish neighborhood – now publicly proclaiming that vaccine mandates “make us more free” – in a bit of Newspeak that would make Big Brother blush. You really can’t make this stuff up.

On a light, but not insignificant note, I turned on the QVC shopping channel this afternoon and they had clothes and home accessories designer Julien MacDonald on promoting his faux fur throws in a choice of colours. One of the options was a lovely dusky pink and his comment was “What little girl wouldn’t love that colour?”. Three thoughts came to my mind: How refreshing to hear his ‘old fashioned’ sales pitch; I wonder how long it will be before a complaint is made; and, isn’t it sad that these two thoughts were the first thing that sprang to my mind.

Any authority pushing for these vaccines is complicit and culpable for crimes against against humanity.

We need to set an example for the rest of the world to follow by holding them accountable for willingly and wantingly killing and maiming millions of innocent healthy people with vaccines that provide ZERO benefit.

They are all lying to protect themselves and their credibility. The lies will only continue until we hold them accountable.

The government. The media. The medical community. Higher education. Big Pharma.

I read that article earlier today. Of particular note was a reference to Whitney Webb doing a smear piece on one of the persons and one of the organizations named in the article as having researched and discovered the graphene mixture. That note requires research in itself.

My question though is where did the researchers get the vials of “vaccine” they used? I didn’t think you could just order them or buy them. And do they still have to be stored at sub-zero temperatures?

More than 1 country reported obviously contaminated batches, e.g., coloured contaminants. Japan rejected 2.6 million doses of Moderna in multiple batches, seen to contain a “metallic substance that reacts to magnets” (Urasaki and Nomura 2021). That sould answer the question of whether the manufacturers are carrying out quality control.
