At First They Came For The Alt-Right…

Then they came for me.

I spent the last 20 years reading exclusively lefty websites. After the financial crash I started reading righty sites. I’m neither right nor left now because the world is coming to an end. Both sides are full of kooks, cons and bullshit artists. If I were American, I would vote for Jill Stein or Bernie Sanders. To me, Alternet is every bit as bad as Zero Hedge, but news is news and I take stories from each.

That the right is full of assholes is a given, but I’ve seen first hand what evil the left is capable of.

When Google’s YouTube first demonetized the alt-right, the lefties jumped for glee, and the right warned the left they would not remain unscathed. Well, here are the results.

The World Socialist Web Site (wsws) has obtained statistical data estimating the decline of traffic generated by Google searches for 13 sites with substantial readerships.

wsws.org ……………………….. ⬇️ 67%
alternet.org …………………….. ⬇️ 63%
globalresearch.ca ……………… ⬇️ 62%
consortiumnews.com …………. ⬇️ 47%
socialistworker.org …………….. ⬇️ 47%
mediamatters.org ……………… ⬇️ 42%
commondreams.org …………… ⬇️ 37%
internationalviewpoint.org ……. ⬇️ 36%
democracynow.org …………….. ⬇️ 36%
wikileaks.org ……………………. ⬇️ 30%
truth-out.org ……………………. ⬇️ 25%
counterpunch.org ………………. ⬇️ 21%
theintercept.com ……………….. ⬇️ 19%

What really bothers me is the diminishment of extremist views and the enhancement of the putrid center. It’s like the Goldilocks censorship zone.
