    • Bitchute is the new channel I believerobotron3k
    • Bitchute looks like some grim viewing. It sounds like another word for fartpipe.PhanLo

    • Who?sab
    • So the left fights fascism then impliment fascism? OK.Hayoth
    • by left fascism you mean triggering assholes to doubt people's dead children, then yea. fuck this wannabe bobby heenan.BonSeff
    • Hayoth are you a crisis actor for Alex Jones?utopian
    • Damnit. That’s not what fascism even is! Why are we still having this conversation. This is a company saying they don’t like a crazy asshole in their business.monospaced
    • And just because the heads of most major social media networks happen to be liberal doesn’t mean it’s the government. Just means they’re better people.monospaced
    • GoodBennn
    • Lol liberals are better people mono, I mean who on earth would even want to normalize pedophilia? Or is that something you would defend??robotron3k
    • https://ageofshitlor…robotron3k
    • i respect their right to ban him as much as a baker to not bake a cake for gays. I wonder if ppl see the hypocrisy in how this stuff is defendeddeathboy
    • or even willingly will admit there choice of hypocrisydeathboy
    • on a side note i'd like to point out hes an entertainer in the same vain as john oliver. News as entertainment with a spindeathboy
    • i think it says plenty about the platforms decisions in which way they lean. not all inclusive, but our views only. like a religious baker. line has been drawndeathboy
    • i actually applaud them for their honesty and standing by what they believe vs trying to lie and say they're all inclusive and shit for sales.deathboy
    • Unlike John Oliver, he doesn't always have facts and he promotes products he profits off of.omahadesigns
    • haha well id say they both operate off facts. interuptations different. and where as aj promotes products network does the same in the form of advertisementsdeathboy
    • slightly different mediums for advertisements. but thats what pays them both at the end of the day. personally i prefered oliver in communitydeathboy
    • and jones in waking life. the news personas do lil for me. think they are the bottom of the barrel acting, albeit profitabledeathboy
    • but to the main point the hypocrisy. will anyone willingly admit it? or will they try to skate around it?deathboy
    • and for fun thought experiment think of the Interpretations of what is news. most is all based on same facts and spun differently for audiencedeathboy
    • how is that also applied to todays big media and google analytics. the data and the people trying to determine what it means. there real intents and spinsdeathboy

    • mono, you must be a troll? you can't be that fucking stupid. BANNING someone from SPEAKING just because you disagree with them is an attack on FREE SPEECH.Milan

    • is calling the victims of a shooting 'crisis actors/hoax' political?..really? or is it hate speech?exador1
    • When people say free speech in the U.S., they're usually talking about the First Amendment which protects you from being censored by the government.yuekit
    • Whereas a corporation censoring someone is seen as an example of THEIR freedom of speech. Having said that I do agree it's a problem when you have one site likeyuekit
    • YouTube that is basically the only video site. Technically it's a private decision and no one would deny you the right to ban someone from your personalyuekit

    • be 100% on one side or the other but I don't think it's such a black and white issue.yuekit
    • The interesting thing is that for all the criticism they get, we are living in an age of extreme free speech right now largely thanks to these platforms.yuekit
    • Even 5-10 years ago you didn't have nearly as many channels to watch and extreme content as we have now...the genie has been let out of the bottle so to speak.yuekit
    • Banning them from social media is not a free speech infringement, no matter how much you stomp your feet and whine like a baby about it.monospaced
    • And last I checked, liberals aren't out to "normalize pedophilia." That's the stupidest shit I've ever heard.monospaced
    • Look up free speech, Milan, and educate yourself. You sound like an idiot talking about it when you CLEARLY have no fucking idea what it encompasses.monospaced
    • If an asshole walks into a restaurant, and starts making a scene, talking shit to guests and turning the place into a shithole, the owner has a RIGHT to evict.monospaced
    • This is the same thing. The moment a government SUPPRESSES speech, that's when it's an issue. Right now Alex is FREE to speak his mind where he's accepted.monospaced
    • Any private company that wants to allow him to speak is allowed to, and nobody will be punished LEGALLY for it. THAT IS FREE SPEECH. Not infringed. Grow up!monospaced
    • That's the great thing about this country. Free to speak like an asshole, and free to kick out assholes you don't like. Government isn't even involved.monospaced

    • Those sites kick people off all the time for violating their terms of service, you just don't hear about it since they aren't as famous as Alex Jones.yuekit

    • of it being political discrimination. And no it's not going to result in all anti-discrimination laws being rolled back lol.yuekit

    Here's one of 13 million recently declassified CIA documents, this one regarding a remote viewing exercise from 1984. The remote viewer was asked to view certain co-ordinates on mars, which happen to be the area we now know as Cydonia - with the alleged group of pyramids, circa 1million years BC...

    Pretty interesting -

    A contractor in Ohio who followed a black man home and called him the N-word repeatedly on video tried to write it all off as an “awful mistake” — saying the racist rant drove him out of business and ruined his life.

    “I just don’t understand the intensity of the hate,” said Whitman, adding that the incident has led to harassment of his 85-year-old mother and his 25-year-old daughter. I’m out of business, I’m completely out, I’m done, I’ll never work in Columbus again,” the voicemail continued. “This has completely and thoroughly ruined my life.”

    Portugal decriminalised drugs 14 years ago – and now hardly anyone dies from overdosing

    http://www.independent.co.uk/new…

    The country has 3 overdose deaths per million citizens, compared to the EU average of 17.3

    Portugal decriminalised the use of all drugs in 2001. Weed, cocaine, heroin, you name it — Portugal decided to treat possession and use of small quantities of these drugs as a public health issue, not a criminal one. The drugs were still illegal, of course. But now getting caught with them meant a small fine and maybe a referral to a treatment program — not jail time and a criminal record.

    • In this chart, France which strongly criminalize drugs usage has half the overdose rate of Spain which decriminalized it. So where's the link ?gonzalle
    • what about romania?pablo28
    • shows that compassion and decriminalization works. making equals into criminals because of personal choices isn't success in my opinion.imbecile
    • ^ if true then spain should be doing better than france, as gonzales pointed outGnash
    • lots of single women in Estonia i'm thinking...robotron3k
    • So annoying the dodgy guys in the centre of Lisbon trying to push drugs - there's gov posters up that highlight the fact it's not pot but bay leaves.shapesalad
    • As my mum used to say, "Only ill people need drugs.".shapesalad
    • What did she have to say about people who simply want drugs?detritus
    • In America you can buy heroin on one corner, get treatment on the other corner or go to jail on the other corner. Meanwhile Big Pharma is making billions!utopian
    • Decriminalization is only part of the reason Portugal has seen such success.i_monk
    • and finally we have a winner... @i_monk - have a free bag of smack.fadein11

    • pmslfadein11
    • or Trumpland!fadein11
    • oddly, canada only just started national data on OD deaths. some provinces didn't track it at allGnash
    • English Canada is still very Protestant about poverty and such.i_monk
    • Oh... Right right... Shot my self in the foot...pango
    • Are drugs equaly available, equaly part of culture, equaly desired, and equally affordable throughout Europe? Absolutely not.chukkaphob
    • *equallychukkaphob
    • So this graph is useless nonsensechukkaphob
    • To mean anything, this graph needs to be adjusted to show drug overdoses per drug use (not per mill population)chukkaphob
    • the graph is fine, it states facts. the problem is in the post or article that tries to explain the numbers or the why._niko
    • It's more interesting to see the difference between how countries deal with and build narratives around addiction. Do Portugal call all this a 'War on Drugs'?Ianbolton
