What exactly is 'unsavoury'?

The only unsavoury thing I see is shutting down a social media platform because some douche bags post on it.
You can't really want that type of control of the internet?
If you do, I'd be worried for you, much more than I worry about Gab.
Does your family know they have a little authoritarian in their midst?

So, you want to encourage radicalization of unstable persons?



So, you swallowed the nonsensical talking point hook line and sinker.
Figures.

Terrorists, Nazi's, Antifa, BLM, paedophiles hang out on FB and Twitter, too.

I think you need to take a step back and understand what is happening.
Where does this end? What services should be denied based on views expressed, not just by you, but your customers, patrons, associates, friends...? Where's the line?
It might all seem nice when it's your side that controls the levers of companies that dictate a particular service/industry, but what goes around comes around.
Be very careful what you wish for.
It's not far to dehumanizing your perceived enemies completely and we know where that leads.



My side controls the levers? Mark Zuckerburg, Jack Dorsey, Peter Thiel, and so on control this stuff, and those people range between Koch style Libertarians and far right wing TP types.

They (or rather the people who work for them) literally invented the algorithms that take people down rabbit holes of echo chamber nonsense. A lot of people who work in the tech industry are rather liberal, but the people at the top of it are very right wing.

I'm not going to say they did it on purpose, but most of these websites push right wing politics far more than they push left wing. Eventually, that creates a demand for more and more extreme content.

The thing is though, there's limits to good taste, and when you need to make your platform look inviting for advertisers and investors fringe content tends to put people off. That's why Reddit eventually eliminated incels, fatpeoplehate, jailbait, and a few others and why they all moved to Voat. That's why Twitter eventually kicked off the most visible nazi's, pedophiles, and terrorists and they moved to Gab.

People who find they need to goto the fringe sites are the ones that need to take a step back. When websites are run by people who support your views, and even they say you're too extreme and need to go find a community that is less visible, maybe, just maybe, it means you've been radicalized.

The ominous thing about today's authoritarians on the left is that they seem to have gained the blind support of a significant proportion of the population.
1933 saw some earily similar efforts to 'de-platform' Jews in Germany... like the 'alt-right' of today (which means anyone not left) the Jews were seen as the enemy and painted as the people responsible for destroying society.



Let me ask you something. Today, which is the biggest group in the west that ALWAYS bashes at the state of Israel and it's existence?...

These forums are inundated with threads and posts about "how cruel the forces of Israel are against Palestinians." These people/group always call for "the UN to do something about the crimes of Israel" but they never make similar calls about the abuses, murders, terrorism, etc, which the Palestinian authorities constantly use against Israel and it's people.

Do I need to remind anyone who the people of Israel are?... Yet it is mainly the "left" in western nations, who alongside Palestinian terrorist sympathizers, hate Israel and thus it's people who are mostly Jewish" with a passion.

As a matter of fact Karl Marx also hated Jewish people, even though he was of Jewish descendance.

This claim that "hatred of Jewish people" came from the right is false. Hitler and the nazis were not right-wing. Yes, it is true that today there are "some" hatred groups who claim to be right-wing and also hate Jewish people.

BTW, to those who would claim none of this has anything to do with the topic, just read the following excerpt.


...
an unconditional acceptance of Marxio-Sombartian premisses with regard to the death of individualism, growth of mass production, collectivism, etc., and from these the natural conclusion is drawn that since collectivism is coming anyway, it might as well be dealt with efficiently and fairly by being converted from trust-collectivism into State-ownership of the means of production. All this of course is the German Social-Democratic Marxism… (Letter from Isaiah Berlin to Geoffrey Faber, January 4, 1932, in Isaiah Berlin, Letters, 1928–1946, Henry Hardy, ed., Cambridge University press, 2004, pp. 638–39)
...

mises.org...

But if you were to look at the "beliefs" and policies many of these groups actually believe in, they are mostly left-wing. Yes, many "white nationalist" groups have very left-wing policies/ideas. If today's democrat party was like the party of "Bill Clinton" in the 1990s who alongside "Obama" both talked in the past about the need to stop "illegal immigration," a lot of the "white nationalists" of today would be very hesitant to claim to lean to the right in politics.

What we are seeing today in many western nations is similar to what has happened in the past when the left embraced "socialism" like Germany did. The tactics being used today by the left are almost the same tactics used in the past to not only silence, but to suppress any and all opposition to "socialism and all of it's branches."

It's not gone unnoticed. Hatred of Israel in America reached somewhat of a zenith under the last administration and the left have just continued with it.
Hitler took many of his ideas from Mussolini - a leftist who developed his Marxist roots to create a progressive ideology in Italy. It's the exact same ideology that exists on the left in the USA today.

No. They don't. I furthermore don't appreciate your promoting such trash on this site.



Aren't you a leftist? How would you know what normal everyday people think?

Have you ever looked at their political positions? Zuckerberg is somewhere between a neoliberal and a libertarian, Dorsey is extremely tolerant of right wing hate speech.

If you can't see that, then you have moved so far right, that you think people like Rush Limbaugh are centrist.

Like I said, you are only denying facts...


State Socialism (German: Staatssozialismus) was a term introduced to describe Otto von Bismarck's social welfare policies. The term was actually coined by Bismarck's liberal opposition, but later accepted by Bismarck.[1] They refer to a set of social programs implemented in Germany that were initiated by Bismarck in 1883 as remedial measures to appease the working class and detract support for socialism and the Social Democratic Party of Germany following earlier attempts to achieve the same objective through Bismarck's anti-socialist laws.

Here's one post on GAB after the slaughter of the 11 Jewish Americans that caused the companies to act.

If this is free speech I don't want any of it

. “I can’t wait to hear about how many lampshades the alleged synagogue shooter made out [sic] these jews in Pittsburg,” wrote @EmilyAnderson, followed by three laughing cat emojis; another user predicted that Bowers’s statement—“All these Jews have to die”—would “be a meme as long as the Internet lives. Which wont [sic] be long after this LOL

So, just another example of the Deep State's tactics. Has worked before with 4chan.

Have your own people make these abhorrent posts ... then use it as an excuse to ban free speech.

We are not that damn stupid to fall for this gimmick.

8 chan is suffering similar attacks using porn, and mark my words, these are direct attacks against free speech.

No problem
Someone said Gab was saying the only thing wrong that happened was not enough Jews died, I was asking for a link to Gab saying this.
