The truth is free-falling. From NBC:

Conspiracy theorists, far-right agitators head to White House with social media in their sights

President Donald Trump is scheduled to host several internet personalities at an event that disinformation researchers say legitimizes people who traffic in trolling and harassment.

President Donald Trump is scheduled to host several right-wing internet personalities at an event Thursday that the White House said was intended to “share how they have been affected by bias online.”

Trump and other Republican politicians have recently amplified attacks on social media companies for what they see as unfair censorship directed at conservatives. Trump has repeatedly decried “censorship” of users who have been banned from social media for breaking terms-of-service agreements on sites like Twitter and Facebook. Some users have had their accounts terminated by social media platforms for operating fake accounts or directing hate speech at other users.

While the Trump administration has generally embraced the far-right social media sphere, Thursday’s event will be one of the first to bring that digital ecosystem into the real world. Disinformation researchers who spoke with NBC News said the event further legitimizes a network of social media personalities who repeatedly target politicians and social media users with disinformation, trolling and harassment campaigns.

“I feel like maybe the rest of us are in denial, or disbelief, that these kinds of internet celebrities and social media influencers are already a powerful force shaping our culture,” said Erin Gallagher, who maps influence networks of targeted harassment and disinformation. “The people and topics that they elevate with their massive platforms are incredibly toxic and will have very damaging long-term effects on society.”

Well, it looks like it has been firmly established that none of the people attending today’s meeting have any legitimate gripes. They’re all far-right crazies who got booted from social media because they broke the rules.

The toxicity of at least one of the attendees has already caused problems for the event.

Cartoonist Ben Garrison, who was initially invited to the summit, is no longer attending. Garrison faced criticism for a cartoon that showed George Soros as a puppetmaster. The Anti-Defamation League called the cartoon “anti-Semitic” in 2017. Images of Soros, a Democratic donor who is frequently the target of conspiracy theories, have been a recurring trope in Garrison’s cartoons.

Various people have posted on social media their invitations to the event, but it’s unclear whether all will be attending, given some controversy over their past online behavior.

Conspiracy theorist Bill Mitchell, an online radio host and frequent guest on Infowars who has promoted the Qanon conspiracy theory, has tweeted that he will attend the event. Tim Pool, a YouTube personality who has pushed the false conspiracy theory that former Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich leaked hacked emails to WikiLeaks, also plans to attend the event.

Right-wing commentator Ali Alexander also received an invitation. Alexander made headlines in recent weeks for questioning Kamala Harris’s ethnicity in a tweet that was retweeted by Donald Trump Jr., the president’s son. Harris was born in Oakland, Calif., and her father and mother are immigrants from Jamaica and India, respectively.

Ben Garrison and Bill Mitchell are far-right crazies? Seriously?

What did Ali Alexander have to say about Kamala Harris that is factually disputed? Here is what Ali tweeted:

Nobody that I am aware of is claiming that Kamalatoe is a complete phony fake black like Rachel Dolezal or Shawn King. But in this age of Identitarian Politics, what does it mean to be “black” or “African-American?” Additionally, who defines what those labels mean? What about
Somali-Americans, and other post-slavery immigrants (and their descendants) from Africa?

When we say an American is “black” we generally mean that that person is descended from one or more African slaves who were brought to America in chains. That definition would exclude both Kamala Harris and Barack Obama. If you want to see some fun, pass a reparations bill that sets aside a pile of money to be divvied up among “Black Americans.”

The more people that qualify for a slice, the smaller each slice will be. Back when Indian gaming became legal there were a lot of people who suddenly wanted to return to their Native American roots, and I’m not talking about Fauxcahontas. The tribes were very strict in defining who qualified as a member.

Ali Alexander’s tweet didn’t get much attention until DJT Jr. retweeted it. Don Jr. is a Trump, so to the news media attacking him is almost as good as attacking his dad. They basically ignored Ali’s ethnicity and claimed that the issue of Kamalatoe’s race to be a far-right conspiracy. But a few weeks earlier, Don Lemonhead was saying the same stuff on CNN.

The issue at today’s social media meeting is not racial identity definitions, it is conservative deplatforming. Can social media giants like Twitter, Facebook and Google censor speech based on ideology? Can the government regulate social media? More importantly, should they?

This crap article from NBC ignores those issues.

Your freedom is at stake. Choose wisely.

    If so called “journalist” were not so busy parroting socialist drivel and did to investigating before they publish or speak the words “fake news” would not be in the vocabulary of citizens today. Wonder why they were not invited? I do not

  2. DeniseVB says:

    Those not invited or uninvited will get more attention now. Ben Garrison does understand, and that which doth not kill him will make him stronger. 🙂 Was James Woods invited? He’s been standing up to the bullies and finally quit twitter. Milo? I’m just surprised Brandon’s WalkAway is still standing, it has to be one of the biggest threats to the left right now.

  3. Constance says:

    I don’t see how these companies could have any right to deplatform anyone. If you open a bar or a store to the public you have to serve all of the public you can’t selectively exclude people. It should be the same way with internet services. If you open a communication service to the public you need to serve all of the public. We don’t need thought police. These Lib communication companies are just as bad as bar and store owners who only want to serve white people.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      The common law rule was that a merchant can refuse service to anyone for any reason or no reason The modern rule has modified the common law rule by statute (CRA 1964) so now the rule is that a merchant can refuse service to anyone for any reason EXCEPT race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.

      In practice, the rule is that if you are white and you refuse service to someone who is black, you are guilty of racism until proven innocent, and even then you’ll still get punished anyway.

      Like I’ve been saying, all who are born here are U.S. citizens, but not all of them are Americans.

      Just like being born in a church does not make one a Christian, being born in the U.S. does not make one an American.

      Being a Christian or an American requires holding to certain fundamental beliefs.

    One of the things that continues to impress me about Trump is that he causes the left to destroy

    He’s ignoring for the most part soccer dude giving her more than enough rope to hang itself. She’s a star to the left but is embarrassing.

    I think that article is tilted backwards. It’s gobsmackingly contrary to the truth, in every way it is possible to be. These people are either so far delusional, as to be unacquainted and ignorant of the truth, or their blenders are on high spin, and what comes out is pureee, indistinguishable from 💩💩💩💩

    Once again, the phrase Orwellian comes to mind, because what is obvious, is how much these people want , more than anything, is CONTROL of what people who may possibly have different opinions than themselves, say, do, think, and most of all, post on social media.

    Those people who have different opinions, are INFLUENCERS, dragging down the public with their unacceptable opinions.
    In the meantime, they attempt to sue into oblivion; an unwitting baker, who won’t bake a cake for a gay wedding.
    In the meantime, in almost every major and minor so called upstanding legitimate GNUS outlet, the Trump bashing lying, slandering, goes on unabated.

    Pelosi Rejects U.S. Sovereignty – U.S. Immigration Subject to Laws of “A Global Society”…

    In a stunning press conference today U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi explains why she she has taken no action to curb the illegal immigration influx into the U.S.

    While explaining why she will not allow congress to debate, change or modify U.S. immigration laws, Pelosi outlines how the United States is part of a global society, without borders and without any sovereign right to impede the “human society” from entering our nation. Therefore, according to her outlook and worldview, U.S. politicians have no right to stop any migration movement.

  21. Anthony says:

    Can Trump just rescind Obama’s executive order that removed the citizenship question from the census?

    • Dora says:

      I don’t know why he can’t. It sounds like the best solution to me.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      Apparently Obama used indelible ink while Trump uses dry erase markers. I think that was the ruling by Rino Roberts.

    • Constance says:

      That makes sense, if you can executive order the question off the census you should be able to restore the question onto the census by ending the executive order.

      • Constance says:

        Or maybe one executive has more power than another executive. Or black executives have more power than white executives?

      Don’t be. He’s a stable genius, dontcha know? This is a devilish decision. He just gave the Commerce Department access to all government databases. Social security, food stamps, the IRS, all of it. They’ll have better data than they can collect in the census, This is priceless!

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        Is there any penalty for lying on the census?

        Anyone here illegally is unlikely to tell the truth about their citizenship (if they answer at all.)

        • elliesmom says:

          There’s $100 fine for not answering a question or $500 for lying. I’ve chosen to not answer questions I’ve thought are an invasion of privacy in the past and nothing happened to me, though. Using social security records should give a pretty accurate # of citizens. As Scott Adams says, people with fake social security numbers will probably lie and say they’re citizens if the question is on the census. Add the number of green cards issued and the number of active visas, and the rest of the people are illegals. Using this method, Trump should get as accurate a number as putting the question on the form would get.

    • mcnorman says:

      The Social Security Administration can provide all of this information. Personally, the Dems have begun to educate everyone on how to evade the laws. They would be told to lie on the census imho. I suspect that things are going to get uglier quickly.

      • elliesmom says:

        The Democrats will want to increase representation and funding based on the number of illegals in the blue and purple states. You don’t have to turn a red state blue if you can double the number of seats in congress in an already blue state. They will encourage illegals to fill out the census forms- maybe even encourage them to list more people than actually live at their address. If lying on the census triggers some deportations, the Democrats don’t really care. The deported people can easily be replaced with more illegals. They’ll send Acorn-type people into sanctuary cities to get people’s census forms filled out.

        But some illegals will fill out the census forms and others won’t because even with the citizen question gone, there is some risk to officially letting the government know you’re here. While being counted might matter to the Democrats, it probably doesn’t matter all that much to the immigrant. Changes in who’s in charge in DC really haven’t changed the life of the illegal immigrant all that much. The government already knows about the illegals who were caught and released. They might not know exactly where to find them, but they know how many of them there are. It’s the people who crossed the border undetected we need to count, and they’re the most likely to avoid the census, citizenship question or not. Why come out of the shadows when neither party is moving toward making you legal? One of the major qualifications for being “street-smart” is being able to do on the fly cost/risk analysis.

    Greg Sargent at WaPo’s Plumline posts about the Access Hollywood Tape days of the 2016 campaign and how Trump defied the news.

    The short summary is that he got up in the grill of anyone who would dare to hold him accountable. In a way, it’s almost like Trump set us up. Hear me out.

    What if the Access Hollywood Tape was expected? The Trump campaign knew there was nothing specifically illegal about what he said. He did make a kind of a confession about moving on a woman he took shopping for furniture but the other party never said anything. So the whole thing came down to Trump admitting to acting badly. Then he attacked Bill Clinton about his bimbo eruptions.

    Don’t ask me why Hillary had to take the blame for this. It never did make a lick of sense but that’s how we roll in this culture.

    The fallout of the pussy grabber tape was that Karen Pence wanted Mike to back out of running for VP. The GOP in general was alarmed. But Trump didn’t back down. He reveled in his shamelessness.

    And why wouldn’t he? He’s gotten away with everything his whole like. This is a guy who has never been held accountable for anything. If he refused to give in to shame, what was the country going to do about it? He just doubled down on his opponent. It looks strong because as a candidate, no one could stop him.

    That shamelessness must have been very appealing to someone like Vladimir Putin. It meant that if he made it to office, he was going to ignore all the unwritten rules. It means thar he can tear apart the fabric of government without getting called on it. He is the perfect person to destroy the country and instigate chaos. Who is going to stop him when the only thing between him and not being president is some vaguely written 18th century prescription for high crimes and misdemeanors.

    Putin must have been watching Donald for a long time. It couldn’t have been anyone else.

    At least she agrees that Trump did not confess to sexual assault.

    A lot of “Ben Garrison” cartoons are not by Ben Garrison. They are by various trolls doing their own cartoons or alterations of Ben Garrison cartoons and then fake-signing “his” fake-signature to them. Various anti-Jewites especially are doing this. I wonder if that “George Soros” cartoon that so upset the ADL was one of these aut.right fakes and the ADL doesn’t even know such fakes exist.

    Here is an article about some aspects of that.

        • r u reddy says:

          If there is a link to the Soros cartoon, that would be lovely. Otherwise, I will try grinding around to find it on my own.

          Its pretty dishonest of ADL to keep a Fake “Ben Garrison” cartoon on their website as an “example of” Ben Garrison’s work. The fact that they have made the explanatory type so tiny that they hope no one would see it speaks to their dishonesty in this matter.

          That said, sometimes “nothing-either-way semitic” . . . semito-neutral if one will . . . people find that preconditioned-by-bitter-experience Jews are triggered by strictly individual-in-all-innocence images which accidentally resemble traditional anti-semitic tropes from the bad old days. ADL could have been triggered by the Soros cartoon and automatically graphed it onto memories of other cartoons from other times.

          • taw46 says:

            This is Garrison’s cartoon they used to go after him. Because it has the name Soros and the Rothschilds. The left never allows anyone to criticize Soros, if you do, they call you anti-Semitic.
