  1. The fascists are now censoring on Google too, with the threat of demonetization as your punishment for non-compliance.

    You will police your comments or be banned. Glad I refuse to spam you all with Google ads for a few bucks. Free speech is better in my book.

    This has now happened to ZeroHedge, The Federalist, the Gateway Pundit and others.

    Note they’re all conservative sites, left wing sites have been left alone.

    “This was an on the record conversation:

    Basically it is against policies to copy the majority of your content from other sites, even if you include a cite of the source

    me 1:33 PM

    I only excerpt small portions of articles and link back to the source. AP, Retuers, AFP, CNN all encourage me to do this because I drive them traffic

    Stephanie D 1:35 PM

    According to our reviewers, it is too much And just looking at your home page, every blog post is basically a snippet from another news source with very little original content

    me 1:36 PM

    It’s a manually done news aggregation site.

    Stephanie D 1:36 PM

    AdSense policies require that you add a significant amount of rich, original content to your site in order to monetize it.

    me 1:38 PM

    I see tons of sites that aggregate nothing but news and they almost all use adsense. They don’t even do it manually, I’m adding commentary. Are you guys going to crack down on all news agg sites?

    Stephanie D 1:39 PM

    Our policies are uniformly enforced across all sites. If you notice another site in violation, I strongly recommend that you report it here: https://support.google.com/adsense/troubleshooter/1190500

    me 1:40 PM I’ve been using you guys for years, why is this suddenly an issue?

    Stephanie D 1:40 PM

    Our reviewers manually review hundreds of thousands of sites per year. It’s not uncommon for policy issues to go unflagged for a period of time. We generally trust our publishers to stay in compliance.

    me 1:41 PM

    But according to these rules every news site with the exception of the home sites of AP, Reuters etc. are not in compliance. Why am I being singled out?

    Stephanie D 1:42 PM

    I can assure you that you are not being singled out or targeted.”

    And yet he is, as were the others. Lefties pulled the same scam on Twitter, report sites they disagree with until they get you blocked/banned.

    Why do leftists hate free speech?

    Simple, because they can’t make the case to the public with their policies and arguments, so compliance to their view must be forced.

  2. Again, compliance to their pathetic views must be forced, lest you hold on to “wrong think”…. such as following what your faith instructs.

    “‘True To Myself And My Religion’: NHL Player Ivan Provorov Refuses To Participate In Team’s ‘Pride Night’ Festivities”

    https://www.dailywire.com/news/true-to-myself-and-my-religion-nhl-player-ivan-provorov-refuses-to-participate-in-teams-pride-night-festivities

    “Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Ivan Provorov refused to take the ice during warmups to observe “Pride Night” on Tuesday, citing his Christian faith.

    Provorov chose not to participate in the team promotion intended to show support for the “LGBTQ+ community.” The pregame skate included players wearing Pride-themed jerseys that displayed their names and numbers in rainbow colors and holding hockey sticks wrapped in rainbow-colored tape before the Flyers’ home game against the Anaheim Ducks.

    “I respect everybody and I respect everybody’s choices. My choice is to stay true to myself and my religion,” Provorov told reporters following the game.

    Provorov confirmed that his religion is Russian Orthodox, making no other comments on the matter.”

    Thankfully the coach did the right thing.

  4. Good for him! He is a good example to bring up to children and grandchildren about being brave, not following the crowd and being light and salt.
