Is “escaping Twitter moderation” a bad thing?

Max Blumenthal pointed out to us a few days ago that OFFG gets a nice little mention in the Paul Mason emails – apparently we are deeply sus for recommending people join us on Telegram in preference to Twitter.

We assume by “maybe they aren’t obvious to place” Emma means we don’t fit into their binary worldview where everyone who opposes imperialism must be getting paid by Russia or China?

That’s perfect for us. We are always happy to be outside the bi-polar consensus.

Interesting language too – “escape Twitter moderation”. As if “moderation” were a form of legitimate punishment we’re trying to evade!

FYI Emma, what Twitter does isn’t “moderation” it’s CENSORSHIP. And dishonest censorship at that.

Ever since our Twelve Experts piece went viral in 2020 Twitter has slapped a “warning” on all links to our site which implies we could be “spammy” or “dangerous” without actually saying so…

We contacted Twitter to ask for an explanation – why exactly have they concluded we are “dangerous”? – They declined to give any response.

If you haven’t already done so we recommend you go read the Grayzone article on the Mason emails. Well worth the trouble.

can you spare $1.00 a month to support independent media

Unlike the Guardian we are NOT funded by Bill & Melinda Gates, or any other NGO or government. So a few coins in our jar to help us keep going are always appreciated.

I haven’t got a cellphone, so I don’t care about Twatter or Telegram. What I am concerned about is the MSM speaking as one, no diversity allowed, shoving the compulsory narratives down our throats 24/7. Journalism is lost, and the epithet ’empire of lies’ is, alas, perfectly apt. St Jacinda actually summed up the globalist viewpoint well, though probably not with the implications she intended: ‘We are the single source of Truth.’ (Amen.)

The looming threat is internet censorship. Alternative news sites vary in quality, but at least they vary. How long before sites like this one are shut down? Then what? How will we know anything or will we all just ‘know nothing and be happy’. Ignorance, after all, is bliss.

I hear you. I can remember when being a transvestite was scandalous – and that only involved a change of undies.

Nowadays, with transgender, transexual, transhuman and heaven knows what else, all a transvestite could expect would be a walk-on in the Theatre of the Woke.

To me, transgender seems to mainly mean “I’m a massive attention seeker”.

As for twitter, or any social media, or smartphones, fuck them all off and your life will be better for it. They are the nexus of the new normal control matrix, just cut them out of your life completely.

Did you know that around half of schools in COMMUNIST BRITAIN (a plaything for the banksters and their criminal Commie mates in the US, Israel, Russia and China) employ a system of fingerprinting the children in order to obtain things like school meals. This has been in place for well over a decade although the first I heard was very recently.

What an absolute sh*tstain this craphole has become. The politicians, the church, every branch of government you can think of, its all infested with these putrid maggots passing themselves off as leaders. People who have enjoyed lives of comparatively healthy levels of freedom are now actively destroying what was one of the most free countries on Earth and replacing it with this “designed in Israel made in China” dystopian Orwellian Communist surveillance state driven by lies, terror and fear. They are turning these kids into complete morons, oven ready for the pre-planned dystopian nightmare world which is already being set up and rolled out by the City of London UKSSR – Soviet Israel – Communist China – USSA cabal running the show and their treasonous minions like Boris Johnson, Dominic Raab, Priti Patel and all the rest of the lying WEF controlled scum rolling out these new laws and converting this place into an insufferable Communist sh*thole.

Peers slam school fingerprinting
Monday, 19 March 2007
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/6468643.stm

But Lib Dem, Tory and crossbench peers criticised the practice as intrusive, alarming and “completely astonishing”.

For the Lib Dems, Baroness Walmsley said: “The practice of fingerprinting in schools has been banned in China as being too intrusive and an infringement of children’s rights. Yet here it is widespread.”

Identity fraud

She said one head teacher had “tricked” three-year-olds into giving their prints “by playing a spy game”.

And, she said, with the dangers of identity fraud, the practice should be banned unless parents specifically signed up to the system.

Crossbencher Baroness Howe said: “Most people would be somewhat alarmed by the idea of having fingerprints taken and would have connected it with criminal offences.”

A Tory peer, Baroness Carnegy, asked Lord Adonis: “Are you not concerned that the impression children are going to get of what it is to live in a free country and what it is to be British if, in order to get the right school meals, they can have fingerprints taken? It seems to me completely astonishing.”

The Department for Education and Skills (DfeS) says it does not have figures for how many schools are already using biometric data.

Comments at the Guardian never disappoint….also some interesting info here. I know the BBC and the Guardian are total filth, but this archive shows how even as recently as 2010, there was some criticism of the encroaching Communist state in the UK from these piece of sh*t media, terrorism and brainwashing outlets. Would they publish these articles today – I very much doubt it.

Can I refuse to have my child fingerprinted at school?
Fri 16 Jul 2010
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/libertycentral/2010/jul/16/fingerprinted-child-school

No one knows how many schools are now using biometric technology like this because it seems that the government is not keeping a record. Some estimates suggest that as many as 30% of all schools in the UK have fingerprinting technology. This means that millions of children are having their fingerprints taken and retained. This massive expansion of the collection of highly personal data has been allowed to take place without parliamentary scrutiny or public debate.

Nearly a decade ago, Paul Mason wrote a book called ‘Post Capitalism’. It was all about how AI would now enable central planners to overcome Mises’s Socialist Calculation problem. I conclude that (a) Paul Mason is a technocrat (b) is part of the WEF programme to push technocracy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyY38-fSYPw

Mason is an ex-Trot from an outfit which styles itself ‘Workers Power’. (I am not aware whether or not this group still exists.) But this is a common phenomenon in politics. Like the US Trots in the first cold war, – I would refer you to James Burnham, Sidney Hook and the revisionist Max Shachtman who retired into the lush pastures of social democracy –

Mason eventually saw the light. Of journalism and good pay cheques – and with consummate ease climbed the greasy pole into right-wing establishment politics publications and TV appearances.

Mason did a good job working on his image and projecting himself as a no-nonsense northerner complete with a permanent semi-shave. The BBC loved it.

But when all said and done, Mason is just another political cliche in the make, ten a penny.

Paul Mason is just another pretend leftie presstitute doing the bidding of his real masters. There’s a long list of these faux leftie flakes, especially over at The Guardian, to give one example. Owen Jones and George Monbiot are 2 names that spring to mind. There’s also a long list on alternative media and left wing sites who showed their true colours during the last 2.5 years of the convid pysops and who put on their jackboots to support the most draconian restrictions against us.
Why then am I completely unsurprised by these revelations about Paul Mason? It’s the sort of thing I expect now. As I said the other day, I don’t listen to them, I don’t read them and I don’t watch them. Simple.

You think Stiller is doing this because he’s dumb or because he lacks information?

He’s doing it because he’s controlled, as the vast amount of celebrities are.

BTW for all the George Carlin lovers around here who dismiss his freemasonic imagery, Ben Stiller got an early breakthrough in a film with Carlin called ‘Working Trash’. Stiller’s father was a regular on ‘Seinfeld’ and Michael Richards who played Kramer is an open freemason. The show’s logo has a checkerboard pattern on it tucked away.

The use of Nuclear Weapons, even if only “tactical” ones, IS thinkable. A general who doesnt factor in their use in a proxy war with a nuclear opponent should be sacked…Did no one read the report, just after Russia started its Ukraine Military Operation, that NATO member’s F-35s were to be refitted to carry tactical nukes ?

If enough of us believe Putin will, or most likely will use nukes, we’ll readily believe US/NATO is justified in their pre-emptive use… The Pentagon has been war-gaming Russia’s most likely responses to its provocations since, at least, 2014. Old Danny talks as if the conflict has no history, just like the corporate propaganda media wants us to think..

Maybe it should be British intelligence is using propaganda to defend the Oligarchs that hired the intelligence agents and contractors, who the government pays? After all the nation state is about delivering wealth to the wealthy at the expense of those who produce the wealth. Everyone supports [pay advertising dollars] the Oligarch owned Propaganda Machinery. The Oligarchs use the propaganda machinery to keep the minds and thoughts of the governed classes thought-controlled, behavior -controlled and knowledge depleted.
Basically those who serve the oligarchs have been paid to establish and maintain a completely controlled information environment, and to keep contained within that controlled information environment, every one of us that are the governed.

People refuse to admit they are incarcerated in at least one nation state of the global system. Its a challenge to find a single person who has escaped being confined to one of the 256 different crucibles (nation states), Yet no nation state boundary fully captures the global monopoly powered corporations or the Oligarch wealth spread around the world.

The Oligarchs pay their partisans to use the information environment to modify the minds, train the workers, restrict out of the box ideas and to use the trained labor to produce benefits that enrich the Oligarch and their corporate leg breakers.

The restricted governed trapped humans are forced by rule of law and use of force to extract and transform the nations resources into benefits that can be used to line the pockets of the Oligarch.

British intelligence was formed out of the East India Company’s intelligence network.

The OSS/CIA was formed out of Wall Street. The early OSS was stuffed full of the off-spring of the Mellon banking dynasty. Andrew Mellon was a robber baron who became Treasury Secretary 1920-32 but who hardly ever gets mentioned in the alt-media unlike other robber barons. Allen Dulles worked for Sullivan and Cromwell before heading the CIA.

By declaring that Twatter does censorship you are legitimizing it as the de facto platform for public discourse.

Your job or career is a shit eating activity if it relies on Twatter. Get a real job that involves honest work. Plumbers, for example, have no need for Twatter and are always in demand.

You also don’t seem to understand that Twatter’s very format is designed to destroy public discourse and intelligent thought. It is not about what is allowed there. It is the fact that everyone and his dog has flocked to Twatter like sheep to the fucking slaughter.
