I'm Going to Link to This
It's not really news.
It's not unexpected.
It's been known for a while.
But I'm gonna link to it.
Because doing so has become important.
Because I can.
I do this because this dog bites man story became very important to spread to the four winds this afternoon.
Unlike a lot of people who are seeing that this story sees the light of day, I'm not stunning and brave. I don't have to sit pondering the potential cost to my livelihood and social circle that speaking this truth will entail. I don't have to ask myself "Is it worth losing my site?" "Is THIS, where I make my stand? "Will it matter enough to make the cost I pay worthwhile?"
That calculus does not trouble me, as it does so many others, because I don't do Twitter
and don't have a Facebook
page. I blog at Mee.nu
Because Mee.Nu is still free, in both senses of the word.
UPDATE 2: Sargon also got his channel locked in the series of purges that have happened the last 36 hours.
In fairness to YouTube, the company says that this ban was not related to his coverage of the NY Post Story. Rather, they say they banned him for a post from some months ago in which he decried the normalization of Pedophelia.
"Wait..WHAT!? That's their cover story!?"

I made the mistake of reading the Ars Technica article on the subject. It's like a canonical example of the liberal echo chamber, and completely unaware of it. I didn't feel like destroying brain cells by checking the comments.

They've gone full 1985.
It's 1984, but one louder.

What I really don't get is why everyone is freaking out about this. Everyone has KNOWN this. It's not new information. It's like with Trump...he is no different from how he always has been. Biden and Trump are both Septuagenarians who have been in the public eye for literal decades...we know all these things, and yet somehow these are the two best people the major political parties can produce.

Ben, the left insist that this is all lies, and Biden is as pure as the driven snow. They also insist that the "good guys" in the Obama administration, up to and including the FBI and CIA, investigated all this and found nothing. So proving that yes, what WE all know, is in fact correct, and that yes, the CIA and FBI are totally corrupt, is big stuff.

Ben, what David said, but also, that's when they're not lying and claiming none of it ever happened, like when Joe Biden said he didn't get that Ukrainian prosecutor fired, even though he bragged about it at the time.
Do you really want the guy who would look you in the eye and lie about something he's (I believe) been recorded saying running...well, anything? He should probably be playing pinochle with Bernie Madoff.
