What are they hiding?

Twitter has suspended prominent gun-rights activist and researcher, John R. Lott Jr over a Tweet about the New Zealand mass murder that killed a group of Muslims as they attended Mosque.

Lott is the founder and president of the Crime Prevention Research Centre. The CPRC is a registered non-profit that researches the relationship between laws regulating guns and gun ownership and crime. He is the author of nine books. He holds a Ph.D. in economics from UCLA.

When Lott loged onto Twitter, the platform greeted him with a message stating that one of his Twitter posts violated the company’s rules although the social media platform did not list and the exact reason why the Tweet violated their terms of service. The tech giant hasn’t responded to Lott’s appeal as of this writing.

Twitter locked Lotts account for tweeting about the NZ mosque killer. The killer’s manifesto does state he did the attack because it would lead to more gun control & he is a socialist, environmentalist, who hates capitalist & free trade.

The Tweet that Twitter flagged was from March 15th of this year. It is unclear whether the tweet was flagged manually or by machine learning. Google has come under fire recently for a Project Veritas Investigation that showed the tech giant allegedly rigging their algorithmic software to help left-wing presidential candidates. Since this Tweet is almost four months old it seems likely this was flagged manually.

  1. Supposedly, Jack Dorsey the CEO of Twitter, wants free-speech. But it became evident on the Joe Rogan podcast with Tim Poole, Jack Dorsey and Jack Dorsey’s lawyer, that Dorsey has lost control of his company and doesn’t have a clue what’s going on.

    However, as regarding Tarrant’s manifesto, the Left wants to control the narrative that Tarrant’s a “right-winger” rather than let people realise his beliefs more closely matches theirs.

    • Cui bono?

      Everything about the whole event smells very fishy. The left keep on getting more and more insane, their lies are getting bigger and bigger and the excesses are getting more extreme. Every time I think the actors of the left have reached a new low, they deep dive down to an even lower level of integrity, manipulation, lying, cheating, whoring, abusing.

      The lauded ancient Roman judge Lucius Crassus, was fond of asking “Cui bono?” (who benefits?) when judging crimes. If you apply this most simple and obvious of tests to everything about Brenton Tarrant’s actions, you instantly reach a deeply disturbing conclusion.

      When you ask “cui bono?” about the unprecedented step of censoring Brenton Tarrant’s manifesto, you reach the same deeply disturbing conclusion.

      When you ask “cui bono?” about the bizarre decision to have an effective media black-out about Brenton Tarrant’s trial, you reach the same deeply disturbing conclusion.

      When you ask “cui bono?” about the bizarre and utterly meaningless step of banning so many firearms after the shooting, you reach the same deeply disturbing conclusion.

      When I heard about the shooting, aside from the sadness for the loss of life, my first thoughts were something akin to this.

  2. Censored for telling the truth, while the manifesto is hidden from view to prevent people from calling out our lying, duplicitous government and the authoritarian Jacinda Ardern.

    I was lucky enough to read it before the fascists in our government came along and banned the reading of it. He did speak of his actions creating pressure on the left wing in the US; he was trying to get them to have the second amendment removed and by doing that would fracture the country into left / right.

    I don’t recall him mentioning New Zealand’s firearms laws, he said he chose us because we’re one of the safest countries in the world and this would send a world-wide message that nowhere is safe.

    The rest? Yeah, he is an socialist. He is an environmentalist. He is essentially more left than right. That’s why they want it censored.

  3. Why not YSB, I think that you are a good addition. It can be too easy to cubby hole what demographic is left or right, for sure Fairydust didn’t think that you would be comfortable here. Aren’t you?

    You seem to have done an awful lot on the blogosphere and experienced things that we can all learn from.

  4. I’m wondering how long it will be before almost all publicly available sites on the internet will become censored?

    This blog, for example. There are plenty of conservative views expressed here by some very intelligent people…. so how long will it be before someone at WordPress decides that free speech is unacceptable and they simply close it down?

    This is not a frivolous question. I’m asking seriously.

    • Although they can host for you, WordPress is just a content management system; a piece of software you can install on a hosting server.

      WordPress does not have control over you hosting your own blog on your own server.

      Ardern and her fellow authoritarian socialists would need to shut down the hosting providers or block access to them as China has done and even that can be circumvented. They are trying though. I would not put it past the left. It’s worked for others of their ilk.

      • Yup, fully aware. Remember though DNS is just another UDP packet with payload and susceptible to interception and alteration. Predominantly UDP, although if I recall correctly TCP was supported as well. And with a very limited number of pipes connecting us to the external world, we are more vulnerable to that level of control.

        TOR? What happens if they turn off any services they can’t inspect? I wouldn’t put it past them.

  5. I’d be sad to see you go too. I always look for your comments, they’re insightful and well-informed.

    However, I too share your caution, I thought long and hard before registering here too. I watched sadly as DPF slowly drifted in the direction you described. Although in his case, I suspect it is hormonally driven as his loss of sanity seemed to coincide with the onset of parenthood. Although, to be fair, looking back I think he’s always been a globalist at heart and his insanity regarding Trump (despite the overwhelming evidence of his effectiveness) really belies the ugly progressivism at the heart of DPF’s thinking.

    However, I think Holy is made of much sterner stuff and unless he gets compelled by law (a very real risk in the current environment of creeping totalitarianism) I believe he won’t drift the way Farrar did.

  6. Despite telling all NZ’ers that she will run the “most transparent government ever”, Cindy has proven by burying Tarrant’s manifesto that she does not agree ‘sunshine is the best disinfectant’. The nasty little Aussie master manipulator had it all worked out, right down to choosing NZ cops to surrender to as he knew NZ police would arrest him instead of shooting to kill.

    • She had to have the manifesto banned so people would not be able to see the way she is, in fact, using it almost as an instruction manual.

  7. An interesting link with another part of the jigsaw about John Lott.

    The author of “More Guns, Less Crime,” who broke ground years ago with research proving that the greater availability of firearms in the hands of law-abiding Americans leads to fewer instances of crime, announced Friday that Twitter banned him just because he cited facts regarding mass shootings. ….
    …. In a separate post, the center also refuted the oft-repeated claim by anti-gunners on the Left that “right-wing extremists” are most responsible for mass shootings. …..

    The system does not want any form of the truth to come out, or any publicity.

  8. It seems that Ardern & Little have got what they have wanted.

    Google has suspended an email alerting system in New Zealand following criticism by the government for publishing suppressed details of a murder case, the company said on Friday. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-newzealand-google/google-suspends-new-zealand-trending-emails-after-suspects-name-released-idUSKCN1U00PW?feedType=RSS&feedName=technologyNews

    A thank you to other commentators for pioneering other ways through the network.

  9. I’ve lived under various military regimes in Latin America in my time there, but I can honestly say that I’ve never been so concerned about big brother as I am now on 21st century N’Zild.

    I’m not scared… fuck them…. but I am concerned and careful.

    With this on mind, I went looking for the document that Pascal referred to earlier on in this thread. I don’t know if it was just a coincidence, but I only managed to find it by hiding my country with a VPN, logging out of Google and all my social media and cleaning the cache on my phone.

    Before downloading it, I changed the name of the file so that the title doesn’t trigger some snoopy little AI robot – and then I cleared my cache again.

    I’m going to read it this evening. Assuming that the black helicopters don’t come for me first, that is….. ???

    • You can access Tarrant’s manifesto if you are govt approved, ie, for academic research or a msm journalist. Not approved for the ordinary inquisitive law-abiding individual.

    • Under the leadership of Jacinda Ardern, the New Zealand government banned the reading of Tarrant’s Manifesto. You are up for 10 years in prison if caught with it on your computer; so please be careful.

      Ardern will ensure you are punished if caught. She will not have dissent against her authoritarian rule.

      • He must be one of cindy’s comrades then. I wonder why she is so against him. Talk about mixed messages. He should be one of her lot, not one of us.

    • And that’s why I didn’t mention either the name of the document or the author in my post. Big brother probably has crawler bots sniffing this blog while we write.

  10. Another blog shut down by “wordpress” and I have noticed others gone too.

    WordPress Would Not Tell Me Why They Removed Refugee Resettlement Watch
    https://fraudscrookscriminals.com/2019/07/06/wordpress-would-not-tell-me-why-they-removed-refugee-resettlement-watch/#more-1457
    Wordpress will not say just what content or why it was shut down.
    An interesting saga only this July.
    Comments also are on a learning curve of experience.

    Just fortunate to have a another blog running so could get this post out about the other blog shutting down.

  11. Is anyone able to explain why everything on UKTV on Sky is rated PG and warns that parental guidance is recommended?
    I have observed this before as a young person in my household likes to watch Jamie Oliver, but was scratching my head when it appeared ahead of a doco on the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
    She was being crowned – not beheaded! No cussing, no cleavage, no pistols at dawn, or hanky lanky, so the rating must have been given for the obscene extravagance?

    • I wondered that also?

      I understood that he had at first written more than 2 hundred pages, then deleted it.
      I guess the first edition would have been a very rambly rant.
      As he firmed up on his thinking, he then produced the 2nd edition that was a probably more of a summary.

      I have read some where there was a comparison to Solzhenitsyn understandings of why Communism took such power and control in the lives of the elite.

      To do evil a human being must first of all believe that what he is doing is good, or else that it’s a well-considered act in conformity to natural law. Fortunately it is in the nature of the human being to seek a justification for his actions.
      Macbeth’s self-justifications were feeble – and his conscience devoured him. Yes, even Iago was a little lamb too. The imagination and the spiritual strength of Shakespeare’s evil-doers stopped short at a dozen corpses. Because they had no ideology.

      Ideology — that is what gives evil-doing its long-sought justification and gives the evildoer the necessary steadfastness and determination. That is the social theory which helps to make his acts seem good instead of bad in his own and others’ eyes, so that he won’t hear reproaches and curses, but will receive praise and honors. http://blog.joehuffman.org/2014/05/20/quote-of-the-dayaleksandr-i-solzhenitsyn-2/

      So in Communism, much has to be lauded to encourage and inspire to do their humanistic duty for the greater good.

      If I recall correctly, Brenton Tarrant expects to end up with a Nobel Prize and to be freed like Nelson Mandela,
      Now name an ideology that might do that.

      Makes one wonder about some in the recent past that received such honors.
      Then who else expects major promotions, with praises and honours. 🙂
