A funny thought hit me the other day. I’d quit going to Gab 5 or 6 months ago because its just a bunch of One-Way suckers, and a platform that’s geared to the Blue Checks. But then I remembered what had really lit my fuse! Torba kept re-posting these “boomer hate” memes. Young people find it quite hilarious to attack those over age 56.
Then I realized the funny part! Torba (Andrew) is always on a non-stop fundraising campaign! Do you think you’re going to get any money out of those you just insulted? You dumb fuck! Not a dime! Go play in the traffic! Its a shame all of the “boomers” won’t pick up on your shit. Maybe enough will.
Below is an excerpt from an article at Creative Destruction Media where Gab CEO Andrew Torba lays out the path for the future of freedom. His basic premise was that the populist movement as personified by Mr. Trump was able to be thwarted by taking out Mr. Trump. It needs to be “decentralized”.
The problem with the American Populist movement is that it was centralized.
Centralized movements give the enemy a central attack vector to target and overcome. One man, who took on the weight of the world, became the sole focus of both the enemy and of the American Populist movement itself for over five years.
The oligarchs removed that one man from the entire internet, then they removed him from office. Everyone knows this, we all watched it happen. What no one has clearly defined is where American Populism goes from here.
The oligarchs believe that they have destroyed American Populism by rigging an election, removing the movement’s leader from public view, and by forcing everyone to stay locked inside for a year while the country burns down around us all.
They think they have won and want to define “New Normal” under their rule as they consolidate power. What they don’t realize is that they have recruited tens of millions of Americans to the side of reason, light, and Truth. Many millions of these people didn’t even vote for Donald Trump, but they recognize what is happening to our country and want to stop it.
The People are learning what the real problem is: the globalist oligarchs. Not any one politician. Not this political party or that one. The entire system is corrupt. Banks, tech companies, media companies, schools, government, and on and on.
We must exit this broken and failing system and start building a new one immediately. We are not revolutionaries. We are not violent. We are reformers. We are builders. When we up and leave the existing system in favor of our own the existing system will crumble without us lifting a finger.
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”― Buckminster Fuller
The way around centralized problems in the movement is to decentralize American Populism at the local level. In order to take our country back and move forward with the American Populist movement we must first take our local communities back. Here are several examples of this happening across the country:
We must build our own economy. Here’s how.
Pull your positions out of their useless stock market and buy bitcoin, gold, silver, food stores, and ammo. Bitcoin is free speech money. Learn what it is and how to use it. Now.
National elections are a big distraction. Members of Congress are bought and sold like cattle by the oligarchs, foreign nations, and whoever has the money. Instead center your focus on getting American Populists and Christian men and women elected mayor, to state legislatures, as judges, on school boards, etc.
Cut the cable cord. That includes both Fox and CNN. Do not watch it. Do something else with your time and money. Support alternative media outlets and individuals. Exit the Big Tech mind prison. Join Gab.
If your church has gone “woke,” leave. We have room for only one Gospel in Christian churches and that’s the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Not the imitation false gospel of “social justice.”
Leave Big Banks for local community banks.
Start supporting small local shops.
Create pro-family, pro-business, and pro-law and order policies for your local area. We can’t control DC, but we can control what happens in our backyards. Pull your kids out of public school.
We must also work to unite American Populists on the left and the right. What unites the left and right wing populists, and Americans in general, is Jesus Christ.
The trasnhumanist nihilists and their technocracy are offering nothing of spiritual value. The Gospel Message of Jesus Christ, and that of American Populism, is one of redemption, hope, love, dominion, sovereignty, freedom and forgiveness. None of these things are possible with critical theory or woke consumer crony capitalism paired with a corporate techno tyranny.

Immediately after November 3 the freedom wing of America’s population was pretty down I must say. But now 3 months later I’m seeing a shift. Trump didn’t pull the curtain back on the Deep State, he ripped it off the curtain rod. All the corruption and illegalities committed in the election came gushing out. The Reddit heroes at ‘wallstreetbets’ did the same thing with the financial community. Wall Street has been a farce for a long time if not forever, and that has been made quite clear.
The King is riding down the street naked, and more and more people see it. Nekkid as a jay bird. We’re getting down to fundamentals. Many such as Max Keiser, who was on the ground floor of bitcoin, think we are at a pivotal moment in history. One of the affects of having the curtain pulled back on the Deep State and the dollar, even the normies are seeing it. They could continue the Big Lie as long as all they had to dismiss were a few “conspiracy nuts”, but when the man on the street sees it…
It always comes down to “follow the money”. Another fundamental that recently collapsed was freedom of speech. When former president Trump was kicked off of Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, that opened some eyes. You couple that with every video released on Biden gets way more Thumbs Down then Thumbs Up, you know he didn’t win. Which brings me to the two nuggets below that I found on Gab:
“It is disorienting—in a good way—to encounter a social platform that doesn’t hate us, doesn’t hate Christians; beyond that a social platform whose founder is a brother in Christ who seems eager to promote and platform Christian pastors. Thank you for building this space and for fighting hard to keep it. You were in my prayers this morning as I drove to church. May the Lord of Hosts keep you, protect you from those who hate you and would slander you, and may He be your shield and reward.” – Brian Sauvé
“As the suffocating blanket of tyranny settles in on us, let us remember the stages that our evangelical leaders have brought us through: 1.) There will not be any need to fight. 2.) There may come a time when it necessary to fight. 3.) It is too early to fight. 4.) It is too late to fight. This is a post-Christian era.” – Douglas Wilson
I’ve been on Gab for nearly 3 years now. Until recently I hadn’t seen the intellectual heft there that I do now. I don’t have that intellectual heft, but I do have good observation skills. There is something afoot. 50 years ago there was a change in America. I’m sensing another one now. The link above for Max Keiser is to a very good video that explains it.
The millennial’s aren’t stupid. They have been the ‘gamer‘ generation. Its not by accident that GameStop was their first target. That’s what they do. As Stacy explains in that video, their world was games. They’ve been figuring out games since they were 5. They know this is all a game and that they have the ability to bring down Goliath. They have the tech savvy, they have the numbers, they have the anger.
A “free market of ideas” (Gab) can be very powerful. AstroTurfed social media like Facebook and Twitter could crumble overnight as they are built on the sands of censorship (apologies).
25 years ago Amazon was nothing and AOL was everything! My Space was a thing in the first decade of the new century, its not now. Though that might be changing. 10 years is a lifetime with computers and the internet. Read an investment book that covers the Big Tech crash of 2001 and you’ll see what I mean. There were the dumbest business models that had the most outlandish valuations right before the crash back then. People poured money into them literally because they had dot com at the end of their name.
There are several things going on in the “social media” world that, to me at least, portend change. Big change. The 2 biggies Twitter and Facebook have been on a censorship terror the last several years. While their spot as giants in social media seem secure, I wouldn’t bet my life on it. Stranger things have happened. As has been pointed out, liberalism online only survives with severe moderation of forums and limitations on speech. When left to the market, conservatism always wipes them out, just like talk radio. NPR only survives because of taxpayer funding.
So if government reaches its hand into the fray, then those 2 might retain their top spots, otherwise, I’d bet against them. Believe it or not conservatives are what make them now, and with Trump being kicked off both, there’s no reason for the rank and file to stay. Don’t get me wrong, Conservative Inc. will want to maintain those mega-platforms for book sales and that, but that’s going to be a reach. Americans don’t like censorship, and I think Fakebook and Twitler overplayed their handwhen they banned Trump.
But then we won’t know for sure until it plays out. 10 years will tell. One thing I do know is that the “experts” will be wrong. They always are. All they know is ‘conventional’ wisdom, they always fight the last war. They never foresee the new tactics. That’s why Trump beat them in 2016, he wasn’t conventional.
The only 2 things I am sure of is that they are coming for Gab and guns. In order to put “the plan” in place they need to eliminate free speech and resistance to force. As Rush and many others have pointed out over the last decade, they feel they’re close. In their haste and arrogance they’ve made some miscalculations, but they salivate at the thought of their autocratic utopia.
In a “mark my words” moment, watch what happens by March 1st. The infiltrators that rioted at the Capitol building rattled their cage. Keeping in mind their credo “never let a crisis go to waste”, they immediately started planning how to use the incident for their favor. They picked a site they had ignored till now, Gab, as having been responsible for this “insurrection” against the government. They are no shit claiming that the riots were organized on Gab. Its laughable. Its like when they tried to blame the overrunning of the diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya on a YouTube video with 106 views put out by some crank in California! Its their M.O. Mark my words, Gab is about to come under serious attack. A social media professor at Harvard just last week put it this way: “What are the levers we have on Gab? There aren’t any (they’re self-supporting and ad free). We’ll have to address that.”
As a side note, Antifa and BLM types have been rioting the past 5 years. Not a single prosecution. Cops got to the point where they ask, “Why are we arresting them?” They were out that night or the next day. Pretty much zero prosecutions. The US Attorney for the DC area was one of the worst, zero prosecutions. Charges always dropped. Now you can bet in this case when they (if they find) a conservative rioter, the book’s going to be thrown at him. He’ll get the max.
“Social credit system” – how many people even know what that means? Its the ultimate Wrong Think retaliation tool first rolled out in China and now coming to some would say their puppet on a string the United States. Especially when you consider the social justice warriors about to take over the American government, Biden and Harris (Harris and Biden?). In China what it came down to is removing economic viability from a persons life.
Oh we don’t kill you, or put you in jail, we just cutoff all ability for you to do business. Imagine: you can’t buy groceries, you can’t rent an apartment, you can’t get a job, you can’t receive medical services. You’re kind of out of luck ain’t ya? Andrew Torba the founder of Gab found this out a while back. Gab was picking up steam and the first thing “they” did was take away electronic payment systems.
People could no longer donate to the ad free Gab through PayPal, Visa, Mastercard and the like. Gab had to turn their Post Office box into their sole fundraising source for awhile. Think about that, the year 2020 and the only way they could raise money was a check by snail mail. Then they turned on Torba personally and denied him and his family the ability to have a credit card. Think about that, we don’t like your political views so we’re going to deny you a credit card??
Its the full realization of “cancel culture” and the libs are loving it. “We will have compliance dammit!” You have complete freedom of thought, as long as we approve. The conservative organizations experiencing this are screaming at their Republican reps to fix this and its not even on their radar. The social credit system is the ‘mark of the beast’ that was prophesied and no one even sees it.
I myself experienced this through First National Bank of Omaha. They decided my NRA Visa card was responsible for mass shootings so they sold my account to another company. And I had the aggravation of setting up a new company. I suppose I should consider myself lucky, I still had a card.
Very scary. This brave new world of Big Tech censorship is a scary one. Swear to God the modern day American takes freedom of speech for granted, and cannot see how it is slipping away. It started in the 70s with “political correctness“. Not that you should not say something because it was wrong to do so, but because of societal pressure. I determined early on in the pandemic that I could tell the state of COVID-19 by the rising and falling amounts of toilet paper on the shelves. I had the innate feeling it would be a quicker and more accurate barometer than any government report.
For speech my measuring stick has always been the use of the word ‘nigger’. In the first part of the decade of the 70s it would still appear once in awhile on a show like All in the Family to demonstrate Archie’s racism, and in the odd movie now and again. In Blazing Saddles they “used it” sort of, they bleeped it out, but you knew what they were saying. Blazing Saddles was more in the middle of the decade. The shift was beginning. Don’t use a word because you know better, not out of fear.
Now we have supposedly rational adults talking about the ‘N’ word. Perhaps the worst part of the censorship is being banned from someplace and not even being told why. Now with Twitter I at least knew why I was kicked off there. I had commented that it was sick behavior for these muslims to be burning a dog alive in this video. I got banned for saying a protected group had exhibited sick behavior.
Now when I got kicked off YouTube I don’t know what it was for. It could have been when in the comment section on a video about the eternal corruption of the Mexican government I had called that country a shithole. Or it could have been on the 500th video on this crime channel where the perpetrators were black males between the ages of 15 and 35 wearing hoodies, and I had pointed that out. As Ann Coulter says, at a certain point it ceases to be profiling, and becomes a description of the suspect.
I can’t even remember what got me kicked off of Facebook. It was something right before the election when they were wanting to purge conservatives and I had said something about Democrats and cheating. On Gateway Pundit and World Net Daily I got kicked off for using my “emphasis” words: ‘damn, bastard, asshole’, and the like. Those type of sites all use a service called Disqus that is a modern incarnation of George Carlin’s 7 Dirty Words. It catches your ‘poo poo pee pee titty’ type words.
So now we come to the final stages of censorship. That’s the way tyranny works, it gets its nose under the tent, and pretty soon its all the way in. The “last bastion”, Gab, won’t let me say ABC or NBC is “fake news“. And to me, someone whose memory goes back to the 60s, this is an absurd and unacceptable situation. FYI 2 sites I haven’t been kicked off of are Breitbart and FOX News. Kind of surprising.
Conservative media made AOC. She’d be nothing without their hundreds of articles a day on her. She hasn’t even served 2 years yet. But I guess its a good distraction to make her the boogeyman, instead of the Republican Senate and the stimulus bill that put every country but America First.
This picture and accompanying article from Revolver News continues to make AOC responsible for everything wrong in Washington. She just got there! Republican Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski have been their a long time. They’re the ones that subvert the Republican agenda from within, how come you never make fun of them?
AOC made the Republican Senate pass the ‘stimulus’ bill that put every country but America first? AOC made the president sign it?
Its a human reaction to be taken aback when something you say is censored. Most often its a computer program like Disqus that’s doing it, but still. I’ve been censored by the best, or worst rather. Just this morning I saw a gal on Gab mentioning how she had been censored by Facebook and YouTube. Its disconcerting. They make you feel like you had done something ‘bad’. In my case I was simply responding to an ABC article by saying “ABC is fake news“. When you can’t say that, something is wrong.
You expect that on a lot of websites, but not Gab. I thought free speech was sacrosanct there. Just last week I’d stuck some money in an envelope and mailed it to them. Over the past couple of years I’d mailed them several checks. You post into a vacuum there, but at least you got to say what you wanted. Until now. The trend in America is not towards free speech. I don’t see how any rational person could disagree with that. They can ban it under the guise of hate speech and whatever other nonsense they want, but in the end its still banned.
“So, Roberts knew about Scalia “wetworks” assassination! There are detailed recordings of Justice Roberts discussing, suggesting, negotiating, and approving the replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia, PRIOR TO HIS “SUDDEN” DEATH.’ ” – I just remember there was something about the pillow.
Andrew Torba on Gab had an intriguing little piece last night. He said Business Insider had contacted him because they were getting ready to do a piece on the Q Anon phenomenon (say that fast 5 times). Quite correctly he perceived it was going to be a hit piece on anyone even remotely associated with Q Anon, even those like Gab who simply let Americans have freedom of speech.
I started thinking about the angle Business Insider was coming from. They want to squash Q Anon. They want to kill it before it grows (obscure musical reference). They feel that anyone who believes there is a Deep State is guilty of Wrong Think, and must be punished. They don’t want Americans to have freedom of speech. And while anytime you have true freedom of speech, there are going to be a few bumps and chuckholes along the way, it is imminently preferable to tyranny.

[What is “Q Anon” you might ask? Danged if I know, I just know it scares the shit out of the establishment. That’s good enough for me.]
“The post-Trump era will begin as soon as Trump starts his 2nd term. The neocons, lolbertarians, cuckservatives, and beltway establishment losers will be attempting to forge the future of the party for the next four years.
The future of the party is making Christ the center of it, just as our Founding Fathers did when they laid the foundation of this great country.
The weak and pathetic “Christian” leaders (across every church and denomination) will not step up to do this. It’s on us to do so with the Holy Spirit leading the way. We are going to have a real revival in this country and it’s going to happen FAST on the internet, that I can tell you.” – Andrew Torba
[Andrew Torba is the founder of Gab, the free speech platform started about 4 years ago. He came out of Silicon Valley, riding a white horse, no wait that’s another story. But he did come out of the liberal tech world, he saw firsthand the censorship being used to silence conservatives. So he started up Gab which alternates between being attacked, and being ignored. I won’t try to cover all the assaults he’s suffered the past 4 years, but the ones with the credit card companies is the most ironic. It came out today Mastercard and Visa are under pressure to cut ties with the terrorists that are using them to transfer money around the world. Years ago they quit letting supporters of Gab use their services to make donations to ad free Gab. They even cutoff Torba and his family’s personal accounts from using Mastercard or Visa. But they’re fine with helping terrorists.]
