    Cleveland Mark Blakemore look upon this "invitation" by Google as a badge of honor.

    Google is trying to terminate everything on the web that shows signs of independent thought or is possibly a deviation from the desired narrative.

    This Mega Purge WILL FAIL though. The narrative cannot be controlled anymore. That genie is permanently out of the bottle.

    This is the corporate equivalent of laws against stupidity. It's very bad, and if google acquires even more power than it has now, you can bet it will be used to silence actual independent thought that isn't useful to Google. These people, however, aren't independent thinkers. Their ideology is very much dependent on laughably stupid propaganda.

    Just because something isn't shat out of the facebook/TV liberal ideology sphincter doesn't mean it counts as independent -or even worthwhile- thought.

    Fuck google, and their actions are indeed both suspect and dangerous, but let's not call people who regurgitate the likes of David Icke, Cathy Brennan, Weev, and Alex Jones "independent thinkers." Their gormless followers are among the most credulous retards on the face of planet earth. They shouldn't be forcibly silenced by a gigantic corporation, but they're not intellectual mavericks--they're on par with flat earthers, incels, and Stalinists.

    Even flat earthers have more sense than mindless CNN-bots like you - at least those idiots are trying to figure it out and fall for BS. You're not even trying.

    Seriously, people like you are the worst possible kind - not just rejecting but actively shitting on everyone who challenges the propaganda. It's like you not only want to stay in your cage, but keep everyone else in it as well.

    First they came for the conspiracy theorists, and I did not speak out because I was not a conspiracy theorist.

    Then they came for the incels, and I did not speak out because I was not an incel.

    Then they came for the Stalinists, and I did not speak out because I was not a Stalinist.

    Then they came for the Codex, and there was no one left to speak for us.

    CNN isn't exactly trustworthy, and getting your worldview from corporate media makes you gullible, but corporate media is still far better than unfounded social media trash. At least their bullshit is consistent and at least their lies are usually sprinkled with a bit of truth.

    Just because CNN is bullshit doesn't mean you need to fall for even dumber bullshit. That just makes you worse than a CNN-bot. If some retard got a radio show and started shrieking that Trump was a Jew from Mars who wants to steal all the Mexican babies you'd believe it, because it "challenges the narrative."

    That doesn't make you skeptical in any way. It makes you the opposite of skeptical. Skepticism requires that you demand evidence and that you examine every claim critically--including your own beliefs. I know you're not doing that, because if you were, you wouldn't be defending people whose views aren't even remotely evidence-based.

    Challenging the narrative isn't good in itself. Challenging the narrative with fact is what's important. It's hilarious that you think you're not still in the liberal ideology cage.

    Try to find less retarded strawmen next time.

    Yes, you got that right.

    Alternative media are important precisely because they present facts and evidence that are often omitted by the corporate media. That is lying by omission. Once you have the missing facts, you get a much clearer picture of what is going on.

    Your problem is that you didn't take the time to examine the evidence every step of the way and reject the conclusions of those who have done that. Your beliefs tell you that their conclusions cannot be true and you dismiss it all out of hand.

    A few tips.
    Stop using social media. Kill your FB account, like, NOW.
    Stop watching TV.
    More broadly, Stop consuming MSM.
    Get your news from multiple independent sources and form your own opinion instead of being spoonfed a sanitized one.
    There are still good indie sources on YT.
    Don't fall into the Group Think trap (including AJ cs)

    This is what happens when corporations have such large control over something as important as the Internet. Sanitise people's content. Youtube is a warning of things to come.

    If Youtube goes the way of the corporate media, it will become as irrelevant as corporate media. CNN lost 30% of its viewers in the last couple of months.

    There are already alternatives like Bitchute and D-Tube where the banned stuff is posted.

    That's not what a strawman is. For it to be a strawman, I would have to be positioning that as your actual argument. I am not. I was lampooning your argument. This is a difference that can be determined with enough reading comprehension.

    Yet you don't employ skepticism at all if you get your news from certain sources. Some alt news is fine, but the most popular outlets which make up Cleve's diet are really only for the young, exceptionally gullible, and insane.

    The difference between mainstream corporate media and "alternative media" like Shareblue isn't that they're portraying two equal sides of the same event. That's not it at all. The difference between CNN and Shareblue or Fox and Infowars is that CNN and Fox lie by omission whereas Shareblue and Infowars construct lies from whole cloth. Again, some alt media is fine, but we're specifically talking about the media diet that has resulted in Cleve's hilarious worldview here.

    For instance: Right now, in the news, there has been another school shooting. The news has reported or attempted to report factual information. However, many coproate news outlets are also reporting that an "AR-15-style weapon was used," whatever the fuck an "AR-style" is--is it a fucking AR platform or not? Anyway, corporate news is building on actual, concrete fact to generate hysteria over AR-15s, because they have noticed that this hysteria accrues views which they can sell to advertisers. They build a saleable narrative out of actual events, and filter that through liberal bias, state and/or parent company interests, advertiser interests, etc.

    Corporate news attempts to frame the debate with (mostly, but not always) actual facts. Shareblue and Infowars attempt to build a debate out of completely made-up hysteria. Infowars will very likely report that the dead children are "crisis actors" as they have done before. They might not, as they've recently taken heat for their "crisis actor" shtick*, but it's still likely. Shareblue will probably claim Trump had something to do with it, that a Democrat could have prevented it (lol), and -maybe- that Russia is somehow to blame.

    Claiming Infowars, Shareblue, etc. belong in the same realm as mainstream news is akin to claiming that intelligent design belongs in science classrooms. They are not remotely the same things and anyone who seriously gets their news from this shit is completely politically illiterate.

    Irony.

    Anyway, you can look at the socioeconomic and political machines we have in place, how media operates, and you can test and verify the claims of various outlets at different points over the years many times over, and you can draw useful general rules from these. For instance: Anyone who gets their worldview from facebook is a literal retard. That's simply a scientific fact, and you can phrenologically test their skull lumps to confirm this.

    Seriously though, some sources are better than others, and learning how to intelligently assign trust is something all adults have to figure out. Some adults, sadly, have not figured out how to do this, and that's where we get the shit end of alt news, like Breitbart.

    *I swear I'm not a crypto-Jew trying to mind-cuck you. I'm just your average Chicana trying to have 14 anchor babies in order to further the goals of the white genocide project as directed by our Jewish overlords. There's a difference.

    It is best to inform yourself from completely different and opposing sources, while paying attention to verifiable facts that one side or the other omits. I don't know which media Cleve uses and neither do you. He is wrong on some things, but correct on many others.

    I also think that AJ's hysteria is a problem. Nevertheless he does often bring uncomfortable facts to a large audience. Overall, AJ is much closer to the truth than the fairy tales in corporatist media propaganda for the naive and stupid.

    If you were a crypto-jew, you'd be supporting Breitbart. They're as pro-Israel and Zionist as it gets.

    Had an eventful weekend playing Heralds of the Winged Exemplar.

    Show Spoiler


    After exploring the Caverns of Zandrithar, found some fantastic treasures. And then met the Entity outside in the grove. Our party's sage/thaumaturge attempted to read its mind, but got mind-spanked instead.

    Finally reached the Kublai Axis. I have the impression we were supposed to do this before going to Waterport. But I love the open-ended freedom of exploration the game offers.

    Approaching two-hundred hours, Grimoire continues to amaze.

    Fact check him. There are far better sources than Jones for those broken clock moments in which he brings up actual problems. Even if a snake oil salesman sometimes sells you something that appears to work it doesn't mean you should continue patronizing him.

    And, again, while CNN doesn't represent the world as it truly is and uses deceptive tactics to sell a specific narrative, Jones is objectively worse. There is no actual evidence of chemtrails. The fed, the Bilderberg Group, the Rothschilds, the IMF and the World Bank, etc. aren't the source of the world's problems--those are problems that result from larger structural issues. The NWO does not exist. Obama is not a socialist. Socialists hate Obama. There is no verifiable evidence that 9/11 was an inside job, and this detracts from the very real issues stemming from both international and domestic policy that came out of 9/11.

    There are vastly worse "conspiracies" out there that Jones does not report on that aren't controversial at all. These things are backed by actual evidence. They're verifiable. They actually happened and those in relevant fields will not deny they happened. You will never find an airforce pilot who tells you chemtrails are real. You will find scores of thousands of scholars, government workers, reporters, businesspeople, peasants and laborers, etc. who will tell you about US-backed United Fruit overturning a democratically elected government in Guatemala. You will find just as many who tell you about COINTELPRO. You will find just as many who talk about the state smearing them across the pavement in many major cities in order to protect rich swindlers just like Alex Jones.

    Here's a tip: If your news seeks to turn a profit or if it's on a government's leash, its primary interest is not going to be informing the public. If you get your worldview from hacks like Jones, you will never, ever be informed.

    Ignore people like Jones and David Icke. They're a distraction from actual horrors perpetrated by the powerful.
