World Net Daily had an eyecatcher this morning, it was about the WordPress.com blog Conservative Tree House being given till sundown to get out of town (actually December 2). Evidently this town wasn’t big enough for the both of them. Ironic as it is today that the Senate is again holding hearings on Big Tech censorship. Its been going on for 20 years but the flame was recently lit anew when Twitter and Facebook squelched a New York Post article exposing Hunter Biden raking in millions off his fathers name, just days before the election.
So I’m reading the article about Conservative Tree House getting kicked off WordPress when I read they had between “500K and a million visitors a day“! A blog has a million visitors a day?? That’s incredible. So I go see the site to find out what wonders await me. Nothing. Its as lame as it gets. You’re getting over a half million visitors a day and you can’t hire a lawyer? (it also occurred to me just now that their should be available to conservative blogs membership in a legal defense fund for when we get unjustly kicked off)
The blog has a couple of posts on the situation. The initial notification from WordPress was that their blog was “incompatible” with WordPress. Pressed on this, WordPress came back and said they had called for “violence“. They and I are both trying to figure out where that came from. I find it immensely ironic in that the banning of “conservatives” has really been ratcheted up since The Rise of Trump, when really what he is about is populism/nationalism.
Because Big Tech has no problem at all with conservatives such as Bill Kristol, National Review and a host of others. Its populism they have a problem with. Its no wonder we could host hearings until the cows come home and never solve anything. We can’t even correctly identify the problem.
