NEW COLUMN: The Anatomy of A Twitter Blocking — My Own

Business, Free Speech, Ilana Mercer, Technology

NEW COLUMN IS “The Anatomy of A Twitter Blocking — My Own.” It’s on WND.COM and The Unz Review.

An excerpt:

TWICE HAVE the censors at Twitter kicked me off their anything-but-neutral platform.

When these arbiters of right and wrong periodically block my Twitter account, visitors to the site will be greeted with a stark warning:

“Caution. This account is temporary restricted.” The snowflakes will be forewarned of “some unusual activity on the account. Do you still want to view it?” Naturally, the worded choice offered—to view or not to view—ultimately doesn’t exist. I am told that when you click to avail yourself of the “choice,” my account is nowhere to be seen. Once blocked, you’re invisible.

The visual that assaults the eye is this one:

The screen shot was taken by a friend. For, when sent to the Twitter doghouse, one is typically barred from accessing Twitter at all, except for fleetingly seeing the notice, “Your account has been locked.”

Larry Elder Shares Mercer Article On Intra-Racial Reparations

Celebrity, Conservatism, Ilana Mercer, Justice, Race, South-Africa

Larry Elder, a great American, has shared with his many followers my Unz Review column, “How About Intra-Racial Reparations in South Africa?”

The excerpt Mr. Elder chose from “How About Intra-Racial Reparations in South Africa?” is:

“…white South Africans are told to accept their obligation to give up ancestral lands they are alleged to have stolen. Should not the relatives of cannibals who gobbled up their black brethren be held to the same standards?”—ilana mercer

This is quite nice, too.

But “she” is not a public person. Glad to assist the queen bee, aka President Ann Coulter, behind the scenes, as she rescues the country.

UPDATE IX (6/23/019): Blocked By Twitter

Twitter has blocked my account and is trying to extort a phone number from me. I never give these shysters any—but any—contact other than my public email. I can’t fathom why people give in and share personal information like a mobile phone number with these crooks.

I am literally off-the-grid when it comes to my mobile phone. (Why so weak? Resist. Stand for individualism.) The Twitter blocking is probably because I shared an innocent email of a terribly ugly Paris-based building, embodying “nihilism and liberalism.”

This accurate description of Paris’ modern aesthetic ethos came via—OMG!— Richard Spencer. Ridiculous. Fuck Twitter. Their patronizing time-out for those of us who do no conform is pathetic.

UPDATE I (4/16/019): There is Right and there are Israel Firster, neocon Republicans like Ben Shapiro. We of the Old True Right are the true victims of censorship. The other establishment elites just get together on Fox News to kvetch about how libtards, who don’t know Left from Right, make them sad. As for President Donald J. Trump: He has generally defended the fake right. Or, as Jack Kerwick calls it, the Big Con.

UPDATE II: This might have been what got my Twitter account restricted. What’s objectionable about it? Asking why Millennial morons get to censor speech? The question itself is objectionable.

UPDATE III (4/17): Thanks to all who have shared my plight.

Via Gab:  

Author and Townhall.com writer @ILANAMERCER was recently censored and deplatformed by Twitter for wrongthink, so I figured I would highlight her recent work here on /g/GreatAwakening to help compensate. Here’s one of her more recent columns on the Mueller probe, in which she makes some interesting points about the way the Cabal stitches its storylines together …

MORE.

General Gab thread is here.

UPDATE IV (4/20/019): This is what the shakedown notice looks like to the Twitter account holder, who’s been placed on time-out by his or her moral superiors at Twitter:

“Excellent.”

Image result for excellent mr burns

“We will make the political pariah cough-up her most private information, or else she’ll remain in the doghouse.”

UPDATE V (22/4):

UPDATED VI (5/27/019): Removing Followers. Oh, yes.

UPDATE VII: (6/20/019): 

Top #Borders hashtags on Twitter are all radically liberal. What a fucking farce.  My #Borders hashtags go nowhere but to my Followers, who dwindle by the day (while on Gab, they increase).

UPDATE VIII: (6/5/019):

Twitter has blocked my account for the 2nd time in 2 months (April’s blocking: http://barelyablog.com/blocked-by-twitter/).

And some of you still think Ben Shaprio, neocon and Israel-Firster extraordinaire, threatens the status quo in any meaningful way. Some of you actually believe establishment elites when they get together on Fox News to kvetch about how libtards, who don’t know their Left from their Right, make them sad. As for President Donald J. Trump: He has generally defended the fake right. Or, as Jack Kerwick calls the object of Trump’s support: The Big Con.

I’ll eventually do something about getting unblocked. My woke readers (rightist-woke) have shown me the way on that front. But, for now, I’ll enjoy the peace away from the disorganized group-think of Twitter. (Gab is great; I’m there.)

UPDATE IX (6/23/019):

Justin Amash “faux-libertarian viewpoints … echo that of the billionaire oligarchs Koch Brothers. … He opposes “removing Big Tech’s sweetheart exemptions in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.”

UPDATET (4/2/019): NEW COLUMN: TV Tarts: Cringe Factor Ad Infinitum (Part 2)

Critique, Culture, Feminism, Gender, Ilana Mercer, Media

NEW COLUMN is “TV Tarts: Cringe Factor Ad Infinitum (Part 2).” It’s on WND.COM and The Unz Review.

Excerpt:

It takes a foreign correspondent planted amid our White House Press Corps to highlight the latter’s dysfunction. During a presser with “Trump of the Tropics”—Brazil’s visiting prime minister, Jair Bolsonaro—a Brazilian lass distinguished herself by focusing exclusively on … hefty matters. When this foreign correspondent asked President Trump about the “OECD,” the furrows on the sloping brows who make up the American press scrum deepened.

To these presstitutes, it mattered not whether America was going to put in a good word for Brazil at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, when there was one overriding, life-or-death matter to tackle:

Trump’s irredeemable, unrelenting, absolute awfulness, which not even an exoneration by the sainted Mr. Mueller has ameliorated.

Yes, Grand Inquisitor Robert Mueller found no evidence that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia in the 2016 election. This has altered not a bit the hyperventilating done by the harridans on the ubiquitous television panels.

Let me be clear. When I allude to the women of TV, I include those with the Y Chromosome.

However, other than a few “men”—Don Lemon and his CNN sideshow, Chris Cuomo, come to mind—the housebroken boys on the typical TV panel are tamer than the tarts. Some of the “men” might even be pretending to be temperamentally unhinged in order to hook-up with good-looking girls in the Green Room.

Brooke Baldwin of CNN and Stephanie Ruhle of MSNBC continue to spit out Trump news in CAPS, just so you know HOW EACH ONE FEELS DEEP DOWN INSIDE, AND WHO ARE THE ANGELS AND THE DEMONS IN THE STORY. (Donald and his Deplorables are never angels, if you get the drift.)

Not coincidentally, the asphyxiating hysteria matches the vapid vocabulary. TV’s women rob the English language blind, deploying breathy figures of speech to fit a simpleton’s febrile, emotionally overwrought state-of-mind: “Unbelievable, incredibly embarrassing, amazing, OMG!”

This piss-poor, teenybopper English comes with sound effects. TV’s tarts all speak in insufferable, grating, staccato, tart tones. At least, that’s how I’ve always described the gravelly voice of the tele-ditz. Believe it or not, such a depiction is no longer politically proper. The voices from hell have been dignified. Explains the Economist,

Two vocal features are associated with young women: vocal fry and uptalk. Uptalk, as the name suggests, is the rising intonation that makes statements sound like questions? And vocal fry—often said to be typical of Kim Kardashian, an American celebrity—happens at the ends of words and phrases when a speaker’s vocal chords relax, giving the voice a kind of creaky quality.

Mandatory elocution lessons might ease the viewer’s pain.

Bad English and bad thinking are intertwined. By logical extension, the “ladies” resort reflexively to ad hominen attack. If Trump expresses an opinion, it’s not because he sincerely thinks it or believes it, but because he’s narcissistic, isn’t nice, makes them sad.

As befits the pedestrian minds described, our pig-ignorant panelists (with apologies to pigs) are incapable of grasping the role of government.

TV’s tele-tarts focus not on the role of government, but on the tone of government. …

LETTERS:

Is MERCER a man?

I read both ‘Tart’ articles and assumed a man wrote them,” writes an Unz Review reader: “It did not occur to me that a woman would write so cogently, albeit negatively, about other women.”

This is not an uncommon reaction to what my friend, Dr. Chris Sciabarra, called “muscular writing.” See Raves and Reviews.

Writes Blenda Richter:

Next time don’t hold anything back and let it go, Mercer. Great column. I was happy to see the insufferable Marie Harf (‘barf’ lol!) and the irrational Jessica Tarlov lead your long list. Invective and caustic wit at its best. A modern Mencken. “Bomb China with American bimbos.

Writes Kerry Crowel: “That’s an insult, the modern man doesn’t have near the guts that you do Ilana.”
