Advertiser Alliance Members Are Called To Testify After Allegations of Efforts To “Demonetize, and Censor Disfavored Viewpoints”

By Iron Will / July 5, 2024 /

The Global Alliance for Responsible Media (GARM) is back in the headlines big time – what with the recent decision of X to rejoin the group, and now, as anticipated, the US Congress is stepping up its attempts to shed more light on what GARM actually does, censorship-wise.

Once again it is House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan who is trying to hold Big Tech – and in this case, “the advertising industrial complex” as it were – accountable.

GARM is a World Economic Forum (WEF)-affiliated initiative, launched by the World Federation of Advertisers (WFA); the latter by its own admission represents more than 150 biggest brands and over 60 advertiser associations around the world.

“Brand safety” is what the group says it is offering to these clients. But Jordan, and many conservatives and media outlets and businesses – allied or perceived to be allied with them – have strong suspicions that GARM can and is being used as yet another avenue of censorship and suppression – this time via actions that result in demonetization or boycott of those who hold “disfavored views.”

Australia’s Chief Censor To Force Online Digital ID Within Six Months

By Iron Will / July 5, 2024 /

It’s really a no-brainer both for politicians and those crafting the wording and perception of their policies.

Namely – if you want genuinely complex and controversial initiatives (such as those related to mass surveillance and privacy infringements) fast-tracked both in legislatures and the media/public, just frame them as geared toward “child safety.”

Job done. Not many will even attempt to stand up to this, even if arguments in favor are patently disingenuous.

One gets the sense this is what Australia’s “chief censor” – eSafety Commissioner Julie Inman Grant – is there to do – and she seems to understand her assignment well. Whether she succeeds, though, is a whole different question.

Calgary Pastor’s Verdict for Drag Storytime Protest Delayed as Judge Reopens Case

By Iron Will / July 5, 2024 /

A ruling on the case of a Calgary pastor who protested a library drag queen storytime event has been postponed, as the case has been reopened for reconsideration.

Derek Reimer was arrested following his protest at Calgary’s Seton Library on Feb. 25, 2023. He was charged with causing a disturbance and mischief.

“The judge is open to more ‘free speech arguments’ from my lawyer,” Mr. Reimer told The Epoch Times via email on July 2, the day he was expecting a verdict. Mr. Reimer added that he is not, however, pleased with the delay as he will remain under bail conditions.

“Keeping me on bail holds more power than even a guilty verdict. These are minor charges … even if convicted, it would be a ’short and sharp sentence’ around a month,” he said. He is awaiting a new hearing in September.

By Valerie / July 4, 2024 /

A popular formerly anonymous news account on X has revealed his identity after being accused of spreading “racist ideas” by the Carabinieri, the national police force in Italy. Antonio Mastantuono, who goes by the moniker RadioGenoa, is known for circulating videos showing illegal immigrants attacking locals in Europe.

Detailing the events that caused his silence on the platform for over two weeks, Mastantuono begins the post by introducing himself and thanking his nearly 800,000 followers for their support.

“My name is Antonio Mastantuono, and I am the

The Andrew Lawton Show | Liberals to spend $200 million on online censorship office

By Valerie / July 4, 2024 /

If the Liberal government’s controversial Online Harms Act passes, the “digital safety commission” the bill establishes will have 330 staff and cost Canadian taxpayers more than $200 million, the Parliamentary Budget Officer has said. True North’s Andrew Lawton says even if it cost nothing, it would still be wrong, but it’s especially bad that Canadians will have to pay the government to police how they use the internet. He discusses with Conservative MP Michelle Rempel Garner and Peter Menzies of The Rewrite.

Sick of woke censorship? You ain’t seen nothing yet

By Iron Will / July 4, 2024 /

A Starmer Labour government will be a disaster for freedom of speech.

It certainly looks like Sir Keir Starmer’s Labour Party is on course for a large majority at the General Election. What will this mean for free speech?

The Free Speech Union, which I founded in 2020, is a non-partisan organisation and will defend its members who get into trouble for exercising their right to free speech regardless of their political views, provided they stay within the law. I’m worried that a Labour government will bring in new laws that will criminalise vast swathes of speech that are currently legal. We anticipate fighting a number of test cases in which we challenge whether those laws are compatible with our existing laws, including the Human Rights Act.

For instance, Labour has promised in its manifesto to bring in a ‘trans inclusive’ conversion-therapy ban, something the FSU has long been campaigning against. Conversion therapy, commonly understood as a coercive attempt to change a person’s sexual orientation, is already against the law in Britain. So what does Labour want to ban, exactly? The answer is any deviation from the ‘affirmative care’ approach to gender-confused adolescents. The FSU is concerned that if Labour passes this law, parents who challenge their children’s belief that they’re ‘born in the wrong body’ or try to talk their children out of having dangerous medical procedures could end up in jail. That’s a law we think may be incompatible with Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which protects the right to a family and private life, and Article 10, which protects the right to free speech.

STUNNING LEAKED AUDIO: 7News Exposed Behind the Scenes

By Roli / July 4, 2024 /

The recent coverage by 7News on the experimental mRNA gene vaccines serves as a glaring example of media manipulation aimed at obscuring the truth from the Australian public. This deliberate distortion undermines the legitimate concerns of many Australians who have experienced adverse effects from these vaccines and seeks to suppress the growing awareness among the populace.

In one part of the broadcast segment, 7News selectively presented part of Dr. Robert Booy’s statement: “That’s great, I’m really pleased for you, but the people who’ve had COVID, who haven’t been vaccinated, get more severe disease, and they’re more likely to get long COVID.” However, the broadcast conveniently omitted the audience’s outraged response, which included shouts of: “Bullshit. Bullshit. Bullshit. Bullshit. That’s fucking lies, mate. You should hand your licence back. Snake oil salesman!” This manipulation paints a falsely sanitized narrative, blatantly ignoring the valid discontent and vocal opposition from the public.
