Five items in total…

“Amy Spitalnick is lead counsel in Sines v. Kessler, a federal lawsuit alleging that the entire list of speakers and political organizers who attended the August 2017 Unite the Right rally were engaged in a conspiracy to kill Jews and minorities… The real motivation behind the lawsuit – to make dissident political speech expensive and dangerous – was admitted very quickly… ‘we believe this is the only legal effort in the country right now to take on the leaders of the violent white supremacist movement, to bankrupt and dismantle them through these sorts of large judgments’ Spitalnick proudly stated.” – Eric Striker, “National justice exclusive: Zionist groups plan multi-front assault on free speech over Zoom” – Unz Review, May 25th, 2020.

“A previous version of this story featured an interview with a man who only identified himself as ‘Paul.’ VICE has learned the man was white supremacist Paul Fromm and has removed the interview.” – Bryan Dickie, “We asked Canadian anti-lockdown protesters what their deal is” – Vice.com, May 27th 2020.

“…when PMO stooges saw Bexte at the press conference, the Trudeau RCMP dragged Bexte away, pushing some China-style ‘media management’… This is incredibly disturbing and dangerous. The PM is using the police to block journalists he doesn’t like from reporting on what he says, which is of course totally anti-democratic and anti-Canadian..” – Spencer Fernando, “Trudeau RCMP drags reporter out of press conference” – May 27th, 2020.

“Over the past three decades, the fascism of political correctness has only grown more oppressive and suffocating, but now, with the left-wing moral panic sparked by the tragic death of George Floyd while in police custody, the left is emboldened; and when the left is emboldened, cities burn, statues topple, careers and people are disappeared, good men are murdered, civil liberties are trampled, and the dual horrors of blacklisting and censorship reign supreme.” – John Nolte, “Oscars announce end of artistic freedom with ‘diversity requirement’.” – Breitbart, June 14th, 2020.

“Although Google holds an overwhelming monopoly for web searches across the Western world, comparable products using similar technology such as Bing and DuckDuckGo do exist, and these still list my article near the top of their results, with Bing ranking it at #2 for ‘Hispanic crime’ and ‘Latino crime,’ while DuckDuckGo places it #4 in each. But no one would ever find it using Google… The notion of Google ‘disappearing’ an entire website and all its material is surely fraught with peril. Should Google’s executives be allowed to ‘disappear’ whichever politicians or candidates they dislike? Should wealthy individuals or powerful groups be able to pay or lobby Google to have their critics removed from all search results?” – Ron Unz, “What Google and Facebook are hiding” – The Unz Review, May 24th, 2020.
