It wasn't all that long ago that Silicon Valley, social media giants, and a long list of other online platforms all colluded and deplatformed Infowars' Alex Jones, and while we noted at the time that whether people agreed with Jones, liked him, or disagreed and disliked him, everyone should be concerned at the coordinated manner used to silence an Independent Media voice.
Many of us in the Independent Media predicted that Jones was just the first high profile attack against the rest of us..... and we see that is coming to pass as Silicon Valley ramps up their efforts to destroy us all before the 2020 elections.
BUSY MONTH SO FAR FOR TECH NAZIS
On Thursday we learned that conservative activist Laura Loomer had been banned by Paypal, among other platforms and services, with Paypal telling Newsweek that her activism doesn't fit with their "core values." Loomer is very vocal and outspoken and many of her "demonstrations" have gone mega viral, such as when she handcuffed herself to the Twitter headquarters to protest their banning her, a conservative Jewish woman, from their platform while allowing openly anti-Semites to remain, even giving them the "verified" blue check mark.†
Another example of a high profile demonstration Loomer conducted was taking a number of illegal aliens to the home of Nancy Pelosi, who promotes open borders and refuses to fund President Trump's border wall, where she and her entourage breached Pelosi's barrier wall, and protested in Pelosi's yard, setting up a tent and everything, until Pelosi had her and her group removed.
The point here is while some might not agree with Loomer's methods, she works at exposing leftists, and does it in a manner that garners attention.
Via her Instagram post, Loomer publishes the notification she received from Paypal "terminating" her from their services, along with a message where she explains the left-wing attacks on her, and lists a number of services and platforms that she has been banned from using, including Twitter, Uber, Uber Eats, Lyft, Go fund Me and Venmo.†
Loomer also states "Essentially I canít even exist in society because the actual Nazis in tech and on the left constantly ban me because I post facts. How am I supposed to pay my bills? I canít get a regular job because I have been accused of being a Nazi. Am I supposed to be homeless? I guess these people wonít be happy until I reach a breaking point and just die. Letís be honest. Thatís what these people want. They want me to die from all of the pressure and stress of not being able to live freely in America....."†
It appears that Twitter is also waging another type of war, dubbed the "memetic" war by Paul Joseph Watson in the video below. Memes are†a humorous image, video, piece of text, etc., that is copied, sometimes with variations, and spread rapidly by Internet users, in order to convey a message. Twitter previously banned thousands of accounts for using the NPC memes. NPC's are†Non-playable characters in video games.† It is a computer generated "player" that has a set number of responses, always the same and unable to generate any original content. Quite a few of them would say "Orange Man Bad," which was conservatives way of highlighting the lack of original thought in liberals constantly attacking President Trump.
Obviously, that offended liberals and the Twitter police went into action, banning more than 1,500 accounts that used them.
More recently, after a number of liberal media websites had reportedly been forced to drastically cut their staff, despite many being funded with hundreds of millions of dollars by large liberal media outlets, conservatives took a shot at them by telling them to "learn to code." The origin of that came directly from the liberal media establishment themselves, back when coal miners were being layed off, when they casually suggested it was time for those miners to learn to program, or "learn to code."

THEY WANT US ALL GONE BEFORE 2020
As ANP regulars are aware, social media was one of the promotional tools used by Independent Media as a means to generate traffic. which in turn generates revenue which allows websites owners to maintain their online presence. Social media has set in place algorithms that have dramatically reduced the "reach," of individual posts, meaning far less people can see them. For example: Before the 2016 Presidential election, an ANP post would reach thousands of followers, some tens of thousands and viral posts could reach even more. Since the 2016 election, we are lucky if a post reaches 1,000, and more likely to see only a few hundred.
Pinterest deleted the entire All News PipeLine board, and all we ever used Pinterest for was to post our own articles. YouTube completely demonetized our channel. Google search has downranked us, and most other Independent Media conservative sites so we cannot even be found on the first 10 pages, at least! Google ads, three allowed per page, still generate the same amount of impressions, yet the revenue has been cut by more than 4/5ths since November 2017, and the numbers are still decreasing, meaning they are only showing the advertisements that pay the least amount.
We have seen a number of Independent Media sites forced to close, like Red Flag News which ran for nine years, because of this censorship issue, and the goal for big tech and social media liberals, is to kill off as many of us as they can.
We can personally attest to the fact that many IM website owners, including us here at ANP, have depleted their savings trying to survive these onslaught of attacks from so many different directions, which is why you will see a new February/March fundraising plea below our articles for the next two months.
Between the "memetic" war against conservatives on behalf of the liberal media establishment, Loomer being deplatformed and tech trying to literally make it so she cannot even survive, Twitter banning IM personalities because liberal mobs on the platform start mass blocking and reporting posts that do not even violate their terms of service, claiming "targeted harassment," and the silencing the voices of Independent Media from searches and social media platforms, the writing is on the wall.
This is a war..... not just liberals against conservatives, and not just Independent Media against liberal establishment media, but Silicon Valley, along with the MSM, against those questioning the official narrative, as well as the people that want the truth, which includes the readers and the commentators.
FEBRUARY/MARCH FUNDRAISER:Despite generous donations, the still dwindling advertising revenue over the course of the last two years has forced us to completely deplete all our savings just to survive and continue to keep All News PipeLine online.
During the months of February and March, ANP is running a fundraising drive. PLEASE HELP KEEP ANP ALIVE BY DONATING USING ONE OF THE FOLLOWING METHODS.
