A Free-Speech Alternative to Twitter's Leftist Censorship, GAB Grows Quickly, Raises $1 Million
Involved in an incestuous war with George Soros and other interests Israeli-CIA controlled Facebook is losing click-bait to rivals. The anarchy of the internet resulted in web wars in which there are casualties. GAB social platform was one such but only for a few days.
According to a release by the Facebook rival, Gab.com operates according to one principal rule: if speech is allowed under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution it is allowed on our site.
“Freedom only to speak inoffensively is not worth having. ~ Sir Stephen Sedley in the ground-breaking English free speech case Director of Public Prosecutions vs. Redmond-Bate.
GAB says: “We are proud to have recently met our fundraising goal of $1.07m raised directly from our supporters (not corporations). We have made considerable progress making Gab the home of free speech, free association, and the free market online.
This includes an update to our system that gives more control to users to shape their own experience. Unfortunately, we still have not been able to get a new payment processor, although we accept checks to our PO Box and will be integrating bitcoin as a payment option shortly.
On a daily basis, our company uses the protection afforded by the First Amendment, federal data privacy law, and American global hegemony to provide a utility for users all over the world to engage in open dialogue without fear of recrimination from unfriendly and repressive governments.
Gab is now the fastest-growing social media platform in the world. We have acquired over 800,000 users and new Gabbers are joining the site at a rate of nearly 100,000 a month from across the planet. Gab has over 10.6 million visits a month and is quickly becoming a home for those who wish to think, speak, and express themselves freely.
One unintended consequence of our moderation policy is that Gab has attracted, shall we say, a colourful user base. Most if not all of the team, from the CEO down to our external contractors and service providers, can find an enormous amount of content on the site which we each find morally or politically objectionable, even personally hateful.
However, we understand that adopting a moderation policy that mirrors the First Amendment will result in users of our site expressing views with which we disagree. Unlike virtually every other social media company we do not think we have any right to try to change what our users think. When one creates a space where controversial speech is permitted, controversial speech should be expected. This is only news for anyone who doesn’t understand what free speech actually means.
Gab stands as the largest social network in the world willing to take the heat involved in standing by this oldest and most classically liberal principle of liberal democracy. We follow the American tradition to the letter. We will continue to do so as long as the company exists.
