Bahrain: Bloggers and the Opposition

Via Danish blog Angantyrs hjørne:

Bloggers and the Opposition!

For me personally, blogging is a fun activity I do whenever I have the time and access to the Internet is not fucked up in this monopoly kingdom of Wonderland. It is a venue for me to speak freely, without any restraint or censorship to what I presume to be a like-minded select audience. The thrill of being able to 'publish' whatever I feel like without any double-checks in exhilarating and liberating in one go - even for someone like me who has crossed the redlines in conventional media more than I care to boast! What I have enjoyed the most about this blog really is the fact that it is a very positive outlet for all my frustrations. It is therapeutic, especially when you click with people from all over the world who share the same concerns, fears, dreams and hopes for a better tomorrow where people of all colours and faiths will hopefully all live side by side in a tolerant world one day.

The fact that there are so many bloggers out there speaking freely and expressing themselves with no inhibitions or restraints is unheard of. It is alarming for this child-state, which controls its citizens like little children. The fact that people are resorting to the Internet to rant and rave about things is paramount to a system which is losing its grip. This is not acceptable. This is not the norm. This is rebellion. It leads to anarchy and chaos. It amounts to treason. This is the crux of it. They want things in order. They don't want to hear our daily nagging. They don't want us to show any levels of dissent, because in Wonderland everything is booming and their is a boost. The erection is all year long. It never flops.

I personally blog because I am. I blog because it gives me an instant thrill. It gives me a high. If they want to take that away from me, I will not resist it. It's all theirs. I will find another means to speak. For I will not be silenced. I will not shut up for in speaking my mind I am doing a service to my country. It is the cowards who see wrong and don't speak up who should be asked what they are doing for Wonderland and not us. We are patriots and our allegience is for our land. Our Land. The land of our ancestors. The infidels of Dilmun!

fjordman, are they coming for you? If so, get out of Dodge and come over here. I think you'll like it here in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

I know we'll like you!

I would implore you or others to do a step up then. Video bloging will be the true source of competition for the future, as Censorship is rampant in the US as well, although we are making progress a little better than the Euros...There should be pleny of video like the one above...

What's the purpose of posting that video, monkey?

Fjordman, I think he's just using it as an example of what can be done with posting video on the internet, and I guess showing where it can be posted. Video is powerful, as I can attest after viewing the church burning by muslims in Kosovo. I think someone here posted it.

What the heck are you talking about? Look up the word censorship before using it again please.

erp, watch t.v.in Europe and then watch it in the U.S., censorship is used much more in the U.S. compared to some European countries.


I can decide for myself what I will and will not watch, I don't need or want someone to do it for me.

Can someone give an example (or two) of censorship in the US, rather than just making accusations? I think the fact that Farenheit 911 came out here shows the left is not being censored, and the fact that Conservative Talk radio is thriving shows the right is not being censored.

So who's being censored? Maybe you're talking about nudity and swearing? If so, we don't want our kids being bombarded by that trash, besides I think it degrades culture. Look at the left. Every other word out of their mouths is #$&(.

Yes, the BNP had video of 10-12 year old girls being 'seduced' by muslims, for the gang thing....THey did some undercover work on it...they were BANNED from television, but it was supposed to have run later, it didnt.....

Video of gang violence, or just PODCASTING someone doing the news would be the next step....

Are you up on podcasting? I just saw a show that said they do it for $25.00 a day...That is really what you need to do...get ATTENTION, and get the word out...

News censorship is what I am talking about, that video being one aspect of it...You will not see this on USA news, because it is about Blacks killing a 'white' girl...etc... the 'censorship' is Selective. Many 'conservative' blogs in the USA do not allow comments on Illegal Aliens, etc...
While there is no direct censorship, most people get their info from the big media news, and the news is not talking alot obout these issues...That is why podcasting will be soooo important in the future.......

I haven't watched any European television to speak of, and I watch little American television, so I need to know what censorship you are talking about.

Only the government can impose censorship. That's why I suggested that thbadmoney look up the definition before using it again. I see that he hasn't taken my advice.

A talk show host has complete control over the subjects discussed on his or her show. It's only sensible to say up front that certain hot button subjects like abortion or celebrity trials are off limits or the show would soon become very boring. A good example is the obsession of some TV talk shows with the missing girl in Aruba.

There's no censorship of the media, except what has been deemed to be pornographic. Television stations themselves have had a voluntary code which they followed in showing violence and mayhem, but I think the line of decency has been crossed and pictures of dead and mutilated victims of accidents and the like are unwelcome and unnecessary parts of local TV news.

ThBadMonkey said... American television doesn't show black people murdering whites. Yet we had what seemed an eternity of the OJ trial which was all about a black murdering, not one, but two whites and there are many other examples of black criminals being treated by the media in the same fashion as white ones.

Before hurtling any more charges, please give a few facts to bolster your arguments.

Monkey,

What is BNP?

I think US news is boring, ie the Natalie Holloway thing (as Erp noted) because they're just too lazy to go out and do the hard work of reporting what's going on around the world. It's easier just to station someone in Aruba and go on and on about that.

CNN/MSNBC/etc are left leaning. Fox is middle of the road. I think a right leaning news channel would be hugely successful. I wish someone would do it!

I don't think blogs are censored do you? It would take millions of people to keep up with the traffic. There's just no way that could be going on. I guess you could get in trouble if you were trying to get people to go out and kill immigrants, but I haven't read that on any conservative blogs. The harshest I've encountered is a desire to have them go back to their own countries and live in peace with the rest of the world.

British National Party...As you may know, the leader was arrested for saying something like" I dont like muslims" in May 05...Look them up....

and Yes, many "conservative" blogs delete postings on Illegal Aliens...
The post above was moved at least, from its origonal spot as SOS california illegal alien invation site....


Well, censorship and lack of coverage may be comparable, Fjordman complains about lack of coverage, or self censorship. The news media is starting to crack in USA, as the issues become more and more obvious, and crime taxes go up...It supposed to be a leading issue...

So erp, have you heard about the teacher in Florida who was just fied for a letter to her congressman? That is European style censorship. VDARE.com has an article. Thats a free-speech issue...

And also, Hispanic congressmen are trying to shut down the minuteman project, which again is a free-speech issue...They are trying to make it a hate law to help the border guards....

Also, alot of news outlets have stopped reporting the color of the criminal, which is censorship....

Ignoring huge stories is censorship, and with more hispanics moving in, they tend as in Florida, to go for the jugular if they can...which is even worse than censorship, its tyranny...

"Only the government can impose censorship. That's why I suggested that thbadmoney look up the definition before using it again."

erp:

Here's what is says in Merriam-Webster (no mention of government) for censorship:

"1a the institution, system, or practice of censoring b : the actions or practices of censors; especially : censorial control exercised repressively"

Broadcast television in the U.S. is censored for language, nudity, sex, explicit violence and other things. Broadcast radio is censored for language among other things. Both of these industries require a license to broadcast due to government control and regulation of the airways. But, if one goes to cable and satellite television and radio, there is no censorship except that which is self-imposed.

Here is the M-W definition of censor: “to examine in order to suppress or delete anything considered objectionable”

As far television news (in any country), anyone who thinks it is not censored is living in a fairy tale! But worse than that is the slant – which is worse in many European countries than in the U.S.

As far as what thbadmoney says and his sources, take them for what you think they are worth.
