And thus it starts…

We have run videos from social commentator Paul Joesph Watson on this site before. He’s a fresh take on issues of the time from a traditional, conservative and faith-based perspective. He’s witty. He’s acerbic. He’s a breath of fresh air. And yesterday Facebook and their Instagram platform banned him forever. Today he posted this video on YouTube and I’d like you to watch it.

Here at Self-Reliance Central we’ve been banned from Google Adsense, their online fundraising ad platform, and our emails are blocked by Gmail and Yahoo. Facebook will not allow us to boost our posts. In fact, I wonder how long we will be able to continue to send out our conservative material to you, our readers.

The prescient Martin Niemöller poem springs to mind, albeit from the other side of the fence this time:

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—

     Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
     Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
     Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
