The Center for Countering Digital Hate appears to be coordinating a broader pressure campaign against Substack for platforming "anti-vaccine figures."
I have started a new company, it’s the Center For Countering the Center for Countering Digital Hate.
Eugyppius - we are all leaving Substack if they start censoring writers here. Nearly all of us migrated over from the Little Bird when it got too evil. And migrate away from Substack we will if they do this.
The elite are getting scared. Too many of us not taking their narrative seriously. If what they say is true, we should all be dead by now.
Congratulations! You've made it. When the greatest purveyors on misinformation in human history gripe about 'misinformation' we know they're getting desperate. Turns out they over estimated the marketplace for lies and propaganda and underestimated the market for unbiased objective truth. This is all their own doing.
Stay strong, E! You may also get some extra subscribers, now that the Guardian has decided to advertise you for free. Assuming anyone still reads the Guardian...
I also suspect that Substack will hold firm. After all, much of its business model relies on revenue that goes to high-quality content producers who've been shut out of the legacy media. If Substack chickens out, writers will go elsewhere, and their readers will follow. After all, I'm not reading Substack because it's Substack (this time last year, I didn't even know the thing existed). I'm reading it because it happens to host people whom I want to read. If that changes, then bye-bye Substack.
We need to form The Center For Countering Phony Propaganda Groups Designed to Censor Truth Because Their Lies Fell Apart. I bet I could get it done in an hour for less than 100 bucks.
Indeed, something is afoot ... and it doesn't smell good.
Please keep us informed.
“Anti vaxxers made $2.5 million” 🙄
Hey let’s not talk about the countless billions the pharm companies have paid people to promote their ineffective and dangerous products. No, no, let’s focus on the chump change the anti vaxxers get so that we can insult them as “just being in it for the money.”
This is going to drive more readers and writers to sub stack! Way to go assholes!
The MSM has been peddling lies and taken subscribtion and government money for two years at the cost of many lives and side effects. Methinks attack is their best form of defense as they may well end up in prison.
Almost everything I have seen from yourself and Berenson is actual government / agency data analyzed and interpreted in a logical, scientific manner. So much for misinformation. Some of it you had to dig for but everything seems in order as far as sourcing. Why this must be hidden, censored and blacklisted is the real story no MSM journalist seems interested in. I just don't understand the hacks calling themselves journalists these days. Progressive snowflakes maybe. They are intellectually and morally superior to us deplorables so I say - Pray, plan, prepare and RESIST. As if your life depends on it. It really does.
Be prepared for personal hit pieces and being stalked by journalists. The nest step in this tactic is making an example of one or two prominent figures, though not too prominent (i.e. presumably able to fight back through the courts and other media).
They will start by e-mail and establishing accounts here, if they haven't already. They may very well comment using very inflammable language and might even step it up to full scale trawling, or trolling.
If that doesn't garner the wished for response from either you or commenters, they will move on by using your credit history, they will contact and map out family members and friends trying to find dirt there for GBA, and they will look up career and professional activites, sponsorships and any crminial record no matter how trivial.
They will also offer you to be left alone, if you just come out and confess and show regret publicly: that you abase yourself. (Obviously, this will gain you nothing at all.)
If none of the above gets the intended result: getting rid of you, they will start harassing you, trying to provoke a violent response, preferably on camera but vicious langugae is also fine, espcially if you happen to use "problematic" terms or "hate speech" (and anything you say can and will be used against you).
Best you can do is think strategically. Be prepared. Accept that it will cost you, emotionally and financially and not least socially. Trust me, you /will/ learn who your real friends are in a situation like that. If you have experienced school yard bullying, well this is exactly the same and must be handled the same way. Have your strategy made in advance, and do not panic.
I love how the Guardian article actually links to some of the stacks. Hopefully that will bring some more subscribers over!
The competition isn't Alex vs substack, nor substack v. Ccdh. It's substack v. the mob, and ultimately, civilization v. anarchy. Anarchy is always around the next corner, backed by tyrants who want to control us. Our choice is always the same -- fight, try to run, or submit. Running seldom works, and submission means you accept existence on the tyrant's terms, which seldom works. All tyrants can be defeated. Those who don't mind being enslaved can try to accept the tyrants, either by surrender or hiding. The rest need to learn to fight.
Eugyppius is still fighting, and Alex, and substack, and many others. We should too.
The fact that you've been targeted by such an organization is a badge of honor.
Substack is a threat. Good.
