If ever there was a gleaming example of how appeasement of Left-wing tyranny is never the answer, this one is.

Earlier this week, Natural News founder and editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, who is also the founder and developer of free speech video platform Brighteon.com, posted a breaking news alert that the platform was “under extreme threat” from providers of Internet infrastructure because users of the site had posted videos of New Zealand terrorist Brenton Tarrant’s livestream murders.

Adams wrote:

We are being threatened to remove all the videos or face complete annihilation online, starting with being de-platformed from infrastructure providers, followed by legal action from none other than the nation of Australia (not even New Zealand itself, but Australia and its “Office of the eSafety Commissioner.”)

We anticipated this exact scenario many months ago, and we have been feverishly building alternative internal infrastructure to eliminate any dependencies on upstream infrastructure providers, to the extent that such a configuration is possible. However, we are still several months away from completion of that build out phase. Sadly, over the next few hours we are being forced — essentially “at gunpoint” (the irony being completely lost of the fascists who now control the ‘net) — to delete all videos containing footage of the New Zealand shooting.

Under New Zealand law, it’s very illegal to post materials that would “be injurious to the public good,” such as — obviously — videos of a crazed madman gunning down Muslim worshippers.

Never mind that in the land of Kiwi it’s perfectly fine to stream content via YouTube of Islamic State fighters executing captives by shooting them in the head or images of Civil War dead streamed on Netflix.

But again, that’s New Zealand law; America has a Constitution containing specific protections for media, speech, and expression. Why should American video hosting companies like Brighteon be forced to comply with the laws of a foreign government?

Nevertheless, Adams agreed with the demands of the global speech Nazis and he had all videos related to Tarrant’s act of terrorism removed from the platform. But that wasn’t good enough. (Related: To protect speech and democracy, President Trump must now seize the domain names of Google, Facebook, Twitter and other tech giants that abuse their power to silence human beings.)

The authoritarian Left doesn’t even accept compromise
