Look at this from the LA Times:
After a sustained assault from lawmakers, investigators and victims groups, the website Backpage.com agreed early this year to shut down its lucrative adult page, which had become a well-known sex-trafficking hub.
It wasn’t long before the company was back in the headlines.
The adult section was gone, but the sex traffic was not. In May, authorities in Stockton charged 23 people with involvement in a trafficking ring that was using another corner of Backpage to market sex with girls as young as 14. A Chicago teenager allegedly trafficked on Backpage had her throat slit in June.
The resilience of this platform — host to an estimated 70% of online sex trafficking at its peak — is a long-running public relations mess for the tech industry. Internet freedom laws held sacred in Silicon Valley have helped shield Backpage from prosecution and lawsuits by victims of gruesome sex trafficking.
OK, so notice that last sentence… “Internet freedom laws held sacred in Silicon Valley have helped shield Backpage from prosecution and lawsuits by victims of gruesome sex trafficking.”
So these are the ultra-rich left-wingers in Silicon Valley who are selectively obsessed with “internet freedom laws” when it involves sex trafficking but they seem to be trying awful hard to censor legitimate and routine conservative opinions.
Nikitas3.com believes that they protected Backpage because some of these top Silicon Valley people are involved in sex trafficking as are wealthy leftists in Hollywood, New York, Aspen, Washington, DC and everywhere else, like Bill Clinton’s crony Jeffrey Epstein appears to be. Nikitas3.com believes that the current corruption trial of Democrat US senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey is going to reveal more about sex trafficking. Now look at the panic in Silicon Valley:
Trade groups representing Google, Facebook and other Internet giants warn of a “devastating impact” on the tech industry if the 1996 Communications Decency Act is tinkered with in the way lawmakers envision to hold Backpage and others liable for criminal material on their pages.
They project “mass removals of legitimate content” by social media and other firms scrambling to shield themselves from a deluge of lawsuits from trial lawyers and prosecutors. The ACLU joined the Electronic Frontier Foundation and other groups in warning lawmakers that if they pass the law, every one of the millions of social media postings placed online daily becomes a potential liability for the company hosting it.
Yes, just like every legitimate political posting that conservatives make becomes a potential liability to the person who writes it when Google, Facebook and the rest of the censors in Silicon Valley want to silence it.
Now here is a second editorial:
Antifa Crackdown – Good
Nikitas3.com has been speaking out since 2016 about these anti-Trump individuals and groups that have been attacking Trump supporters, even murdering three of them, and disrupting Trump rallies. They rioted at Trump’s inauguration and have repeatedly shown up at peaceful rallies to taunt, provoke and attack the participants.
They are, in effect, silencing free speech all over the country. In Portland, Oregon, for instance, they threatened the Republican contingent in an annual parade and so the parade was canceled.
Now we have a name for them – ‘antifa’ – and these thugs need to be prosecuted for what they are, which is domestic terrorists. They are simply left-wing communist tyrants, rioters, killers and censors. And the tide now is thankfully turning on them under president Trump. Look at this from The Daily Caller:
The Department of Homeland Security has formally classified activities of so-called anti-fascist or “antifa” groups as “domestic terrorist violence,” according to sources and documents obtained by (the website) Politico.
The news comes on the heels of antifa violence that erupted against peaceful supporters of Donald Trump and others antifa accused of, often falsely, being white supremacists or Nazis, The LA Times reported.
According to Politico, unreported documents from a 2016 joint intelligence assessment by DHS and the FBI described that by April 2016, officials claimed that “anarchist extremists” were the root cause of the violence at public demonstrations against many different targets and were assessed for attacking law enforcement and government entities in the name of fighting racism, fascism, social injustice and “the capitalist system.”
“It was in that period [as the Trump campaign emerged] that we really became aware of them,” said one senior law enforcement official tracking domestic extremists in a state that has become a front line in clashes between the groups. “These antifa guys were showing up with weapons, shields and bike helmets and just beating the shit out of people… They’re using Molotov cocktails, they’re starting fires, they’re throwing bombs and smashing windows.”
We have seen these types of people showing up repeatedly over the last 50 years all over the map, as in this description from Wikipedia about a group founded in 1970:
The Red Army Faction, in its early stages commonly known as the Baader-Meinhof Group or Baader-Meinhof Gang was a West German far-left militant group. … The West German government considered the Red Army Faction to be a terrorist organization. The group was supported by the (communist) East German state security agency, the Stasi.
The Red Army Faction engaged in a series of bombings, assassinations, kidnappings, bank robberies, and shoot-outs with police over the course of three decades…. The RAF has been held responsible for thirty-four deaths, including many secondary targets, such as chauffeurs and bodyguards, as well as many injuries throughout its almost thirty years of activity.
Then there is Obama’s friend from Chicago Bill Ayers who escaped prosecution for a series of terrorist bombings in the US in the 1960s and 1970s. Or look at this from Townhall.com:
Obama (legally pardoned and release from jail) Oscar López Rivera, a Puerto Rican nationalist who was convicted of seditious conspiracy, use of force to commit robbery, interstate transportation of firearms and ammunition to aid in the commission of a felony, and interstate transportation of stolen vehicles.
Lopez Rivera is a Puerto Rican nationalist and a member of nationalist group Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional Puertorriqueña (“FALN”), who sought independence for the island territory so that it could become a socialist nation. FALN orchestrated a series of bombings that killed six people. Rivera functioned as a bomb maker for the group and helped to recruit others.
Lopez Rivera was sentenced to 51 years in prison in 1981, and an additional 15 years were tacked on to his sentence after he attempted to escape from prison in 1988.
In 1999, President Bill Clinton offered Lopez Rivera and 15 other members of FALN conditional clemency if they would renounce violence and terrorism. While 14 FALN members accepted this offer, Lopez Rivera and another did not. Congress condemned this conditional clemency offer by an overwhelming margin.
Notice that both Obama and Clinton helped this accomplice to murder. This is beyond shameful. This exposes the Democrats as the party of terrorism and crime. That is why they are doing everything in their power to stop the deportation of criminal illegals and to defend criminals and muslim terrorists at every turn.
In the last 20 years we have seen these terrorist groups rioting at international financial conferences like the World Trade Organization. They also disrupted the city of Hamburg, Germany in July 2017 at the G20 conference with unprecedented violence and attacks on police.
Now look at this from Fox News about that group:
German authorities have banned the most influential internet website of antifa – the country’s militant left — in the wake of violence that occured last month outside the G20 summit in Hamburg.
In an unprecedented move against violent left-wing extremism, Germany’s Interior Ministry informed the owners of the left-wing site about the crackdown Friday, the Local reported.
Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière claimed the website helped incite the violence in Hamburg and warned of “serious consequences” of left-wing radicalism, the New York Times reported.
“The prelude to the G-20 summit in Hamburg was not the only time that violent actions and attacks on infrastructural facilities were mobilized (through the website),” the minister said.
Good. It’s about time. We need an international crackdown because this is a well-financed, well-organized international movement backed by people like Soros, Obama, communist China, North Korea and thousands of other leftist and anti-liberty forces around the globe.
These groups are not “anti fascist”. These groups are using fascist tactics every day and promoting the fascist cause to kill liberty. Fox News also reported about ‘antifa’ in the US:
Well before the deadly Aug. 12 rally in Charlottesville and the ongoing violent clashes with white supremacists and other groups, federal authorities warned local officials the actions of left-wing extremists were becoming increasingly confrontational and dangerous.
Federal agencies warned of the growing likelihood of lethal violence between left-wing anarchists and right-wing white supremacists.
Some even classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence.”
In previously unreported documents dating back to April 2016 and viewed by Fox News, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security wrote that “anarchist extremists” and antifa groups were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies.
They blamed these groups for attacks on police, government and political institutions, racists, fascists and “symbols of capitalism.”
We saw these skunks rioting and burning in Berkeley, California to prevent appearances by conservative speakers. And we saw them rearing their ugly heads in the Occupy Wall Street movement back in Autumn 2011. These “occupiers” were disgusting and violent. Their message was never even clear except to create chaos. But Nancy Pelosi said this about them:
“God bless them for their spontaneity. It’s independent … it’s young, it’s spontaneous, and it’s focused. And it’s going to be effective.”
But lo and behold “occupy” Wall Street (and Cleveland, Portland, Albany, and every other city) burned themselves out quickly with violence, arson, drugs, theft, reprehensible behavior, murder and suicide. And now we are seeing the pattern repeated with these ‘antifa’ thugs, but only worse, while we don’t even know what they are doing behind the scenes. It is probably much worse.
Nikitas3.com has wondered why states have not banned violent protesters from hiding their faces the way ‘antifa’ does, but now I get it – Democrats in those states want to protect their friends. This now is coming to an end under the Trump administration. Thank God…
Here is a final word about ‘antifa’ from The Daily Caller:
Public school teachers are behind a leading far-left militant group that is part of the Antifa network that federal officials say is committing “domestic terrorist violence.”
By Any Means Necessary, which has played a key role in riots in Berkeley, Sacramento and elsewhere, has dozens of public school teachers among its members, including among its most prominent leaders.
The FBI and Department of Homeland Security began paying closer attention to Antifa groups in general after BAMN and other extremists started a riot and attacked marchers at a white nationalist rally in Sacramento last July, Politico reported on Friday. The Sacramento violence left at least 10 people hospitalized, several of whom had knife wounds.
One of BAMN’s most prominent organizers is Yvette Felarca, a Berkeley middle school teacher and pro-violence militant. Felarca currently faces charges of inciting a riot for her role in the Sacramento violence.
