Many Americans are rightfully on guard when it comes to their Second Amendment rights. There is a whole subculture, lobby and multitude of groups dedicated to celebrating firearms, monitoring political attacks on gun rights and fighting against them. On the other hand, another cherished freedom, the right to express your beliefs, has been totally ceded... Read More
In September of last year, the Zionist social media page Facebook engaged in electoral meddling by arbitrarily banning the large accounts of radical nationalist parties Forza Nuova and CasaPound. In a rare victory for free speech in the West, Judge Stefania Garrisi found that Facebook had violated the rights of CasaPound in civil court in... Read More
My team was recently forwarded an abuse complaint from Cloudflare from the pseudonymous "EJ Smith," paired with a threat to shut down DDoS protection for National Justice. In the form, this journalist, Eric Striker, is slandered with the outrageous claim that I am a "domestic terrorist." This is filed as a copyright protestation, without any... Read More
Two days ago at the ADL conference Jewish Zionist comedian Sacha Baron Cohen criticised the internet and social media companies for allowing freedom of speech. This grotesque character who has made a career of marginalising oppressed minorities by depicting stereotypical characters and then ridiculing them is now calling on social media to adopt gag orders...

Over the course of my life I have watched integrity shrivel up and die everywhere in the Western world. It is not like it was ever really abundant, but there was a goodly amount of it, and it had authority. People, especially those in public life, weren’t shameless as they are today. In the past...

Michael Rectenwald’s GOOGLE ARCHIPELAGO
The Wall Street Journal just published a shocking expose, How Google Interferes With Its Search Algorithms and Changes Your Results, [by Kirsten Grind, Sam Schechner, Robert McMillan and John West, November 15, 2019], revealing not only that Google is exploiting its market power in ways the clearly raise anti-trust questions, but also that it shadow-bans...

Mnar Muhawesh speaks with journalist Daniel McAdams about being permanently banned from Twitter, social media censorship and more.

One of the more enduring myths accepted as reality in our modern society is that America has a relatively free press. The ruling authorities and their entrenched accomplices promote that lie as diligently as they work to ensure that it never again becomes true. America did have a mostly free and independent press until the... Read More
An ongoing study by Penn State's political science department has found that Youtube users actively seek out "alt-right" (defined as white nationalist and anti-Jewish by the paper) media, rather than being radicalized by algorithms. This fits perfectly with parallel research done by National Justice showing that traffic continues to increase to alt-right websites, even as... Read More
The abrupt take down of Red Ice TV, a Youtube sensation, is the latest in tactical censorship being conducted by Zionist organizations. In just three years, American intellectual elites have gone from defending Richard Spencer's right to speak in public spaces to embracing Chinese-style censorship in consensus. Few young people in their 20s and 30s... Read More
A recent New York Times investigation found that images of child sexual abuse available on the internet has risen from 1 million in 2014 to 45 million today. Tips and reports to law enforcement have exploded during this time period, yet arrests have remained stagnant. The federal government's reaction? To jack off. Thanks to overzealous... Read More

If you want a vision of the future, don’t imagine “a boot stamping on a human face — for ever,” as Orwell suggested in 1984. Instead, imagine that human face staring mesmerized into the screen of some kind of nifty futuristic device on which every word, sound, and image has been algorithmically approved for consumption...

The United States ranks 48th among nations for press freedom, according to Reporters Without Borders. Because few other countries have the equivalent of our First Amendment, learning that we rank below Botswana and Slovenia may come as a surprise. Mostly, the organization pins this dismal state of affairs on Trump's attacks on the news media.... Read More

As Jeffrey Epstein’s accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell appears to have fallen off the face of the Earth, it’s little remembered in the media how I fought a long war against her father Robert and the part I played in his downfall. It would be scarcely worth recalling at this distance if it did not shed light,... Read More

President Donald Trump responded to the El Paso and Dayton shootings in the worst way possible. He called for gun control, the death penalty for “hate crimes,” and more tech censorship. It’s a plan Kamala Harris would envy and if implemented, would let the federal government silence Trump voters on social media and take their... Read More

Is it a Hate Crime to Call Roberta Kaplan a "chubby lesbian kike"?
What is Hate Speech? In keeping with the so-called “Christchurch Call to Action” which flowed from a meeting of government officials and internet giants on May 15, 2019 in Paris, Facebook issued an internal document entitled “Hate Agent Policy Review,” which, according to Breitbart, which received a copy from a source inside Facebook, “outlines a...

Besieged Macron Regime Passing Legislation to Ban Free Speech on Social Media
Despite a moderate economic recovery, President Emmanuel Macron’s government continues to flounder in unpopularity. A recent poll found only 1 in 4 people had a positive view of the French president and his government, while 66% had an outright negative view. Every regime under siege has a choice: improve its performance and unify the country... Read More
Muslims and Jews in alliance: “Yossi Klein Halevi, left, and Abdullah Antepli are co-directors of the Muslim Leadership Initiative”
Jonathan Sacks is the former Chief Rabbi of Great Britain. Wes Streeting is a homosexual Labour MP and vice-chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group against Antisemitism. You wouldn’t expect either of these two men to offer aid and comfort to us hate-filled haters at the Occidental Observer. The process began with Jews But they have... Read More

Penguin announced this week that in response to claims of ‘antisemitism’ it has stopped printing Col. Pedro Baños’ best selling book, “How They Rule the World.” The scandal erupted when it was revealed that passages in the original Spanish edition of the book related to the Rothschild dynasty were omitted from the Penguin Random House...

The decision of the San Francisco school board to obliterate the historic murals in George Washington High School is not just another instance of Identity Politics foolishness. It is also a terrifying illustration of the drastic mental decline of what is called “the Left”. Back in the 1930s there was a Left that had brains.... Read More

Justify your actions by the need to protect the weak and vulnerable. This is the first rule of political rhetoric. If you bomb Syria, do not admit you did it to install your puppet regime or to lay a pipeline. Say you did it to save the Aleppo kids gassed by Assad the Butcher. If... Read More

Journalists did not appreciate the implications for themselves of the contrived and false indictment of Julian Assange by a corrupt US government. It was obvious to a few of us that the indictment by the US government, a government constrained by the First Amendment, of a foreign national for publishing leaked material, an action never...

Thirty-seven percent of American citizens are socialist or communist. That's far more people than voted for either Hillary Clinton (28% of eligible voters) or Donald Trump (27%) in 2016. The majority is voiceless. A privileged minority rules. The United States is a political apartheid state. If the left were allowed on the ballot in this... Read More

Laura Loomer Appeals To Trump On Tech Totalitarianism (Which Threatens VDARE.com)
Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook amped up its censorship this week when it announced it had banned an astonishing array of dissidents such as Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Louis Farrakhan, Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos, and other “extremists” from its platforms, which include Instagram. This Tech Totalitarianism coup against President Trump’s own supporters seems finally to have... Read More

Facebook is receiving congratulations from the darkest corner of the web for reverting to the discredited gatekeeping of the legacy media and further eroding freedom of inquiry on the Internet, which in its early days gained popularity as an antidote to the very censorship we see Facebook (and Paypal and Amazon) imposing. When they were... Read More

Is China Being Framed?
I was researching Chinese censorship when–irony of ironies–I fell afoul of American censorship, providing an opportunity to update you on the state of the art under both regimes, starting at home, with the recent attempt to frame the President for crimes he did not commit. Like many attempts to frame people, events and nations–Vietnam, Iraq,... Read More

For seven years, from the moment Julian Assange first sought refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London, they have been telling us we were wrong, that we were paranoid conspiracy theorists. We were told there was no real threat of Assange’s extradition to the United States, that it was all in our fevered imaginations. For... Read More

By almost every metric, Jews are the most protected ethnic group on earth. At the frontline of this protection, Jewish institutional security is heavily subsidised by taxpayers throughout the West. In Germany, the government provides an annual stipend of $15 million to the Central Council of Jews. In the UK, the government spends around $20... Read More
Yesterday (April 10, 2019) a reader alerted me to the fact that I am being smeared on Wikipedia as a “vocal supporter of the current Russian government and its policies.” The reader also reports that an article in the Daily Beast calls me a “Putin worshiper.” The reader says that he tried to edit the...

The House Judiciary Committee’s Tuesday hearing on white nationalism was a disturbing clown show. Democrats and the professional “hate” watchers insisted white nationalism is the greatest threat to America. Most Republicans tried to switch the topic to that other great domestic danger: left-wing anti-Semitism. Big Tech’s representatives bent over backwards to say they are doing... Read More
News From Information Clearing House

Jared Taylor, Martin Sellner Travel Bans Show The “Free World” Is Finished
“The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime,” commented British Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey on the eve of his country’s entry in World War I. Something similar came to mind when I heard that American Renaissance Editor Jared Taylor has been banned from Europe... Read More

Social Justice Warriors are obsessed with words. They instinctively understand that words aren’t just a means to communicate: they are thinking-tools—a way of expressing your individual and group identity. Political Correctness, in policing language, attempts to police people. It reduces their individuality, forces them to outwardly conform to the Multicultural Cult through speech, breaks their...

Over the last decade, Amazon has gained a near-total monopoly over Internet book sales, and late last month, we saw the dangerous consequences of such intellectual control as the company suddenly banned dozens of books, many of them of excellent scholarly quality. Apparently, activist organizations such as the ADL and the SPLC had succeeded in... Read More

Who’s afraid of Alan Sabrosky? Whoever they are, they have the ability to monitor and censor YouTube live-streams in real time. And they apparently don’t want you to know what Sabrosky thinks about the Holocaust. That’s the obvious takeaway from the highly unusual example of YouTube censorship that disrupted the March 22 live broadcast of... Read More

Jews Say Banning Black Books is SAFER Than Dialogue with Blacks
The banning of four Nation of Islam Black history books by Amazon, the largest bookseller in the world, provides a perfect opportunity to examine the wickedly racist ways Jewish power is wielded in America. Amazon provided no warning, no reason, no hearing, and no opportunity to respond—it was a blatant mockery of Amazon founder Jeffrey... Read More

Banning Black Historiography During Black History Month
As most are surely aware, the last year or two has seen a growing crackdown on free speech and free thought across the Internet, with our constitutionally-protected First Amendment rights being circumvented through the agency of monopolistic private sector corporations such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google. Although as yet our government has not gained the... Read More
The Internet is seen as a savior that will take over the function of honest reporting and free speech now that the print and TV media and NPR serve as the Ministry of Propaganda.

In de-platforming news this week, Amazon is now no longer selling books that present a dissident perspective.
