It has been all downhill on the internet since Donald Trump won the 2016 election. The censorship has been sliding down the slippery slope ever since that turning point.
It started with Ricky Vaughn, Weev and MILO. The shitlibs love censorship and have been emboldened over the past five years. They are more supportive of censorship than ever now. Meanwhile, the mainstream Right is incapable or unwilling to do anything about it because of their free market fundamentalist ideology. Sen. Rand Paul was recently suspended from YouTube and could only defend their right do so. Independent voters who are being censored have no representation in either political party.
Note: In retrospect, I am glad that I was banned from Facebook and especially PayPal. I wouldn’t go back even if I were allowed to do so.
