Posted on 06/14/2019 7:26:47 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
People come to Pinterest for all kinds of things. But apparently, there's one thing users won't find on the app -- and that's tolerance. It was supposed to be a harmless site, a place for swapping recipes and planning kitchen remodels. Now we know: even the most innocuous platforms aren't immune from Big Tech's censorship. And if that's the case, conservatives are in trouble. Because the problem just got a whole lot worse than we thought.
Eric Cochran was an employee of Pinterest, a software engineer. Like a lot of conservatives in the online world, he kept his views to himself. He knew Big Tech was doing "some bad stuff," but he didn't realize how bad until earlier this year, when the number of pro-life laws started exploding across the states. Suddenly, the company's "trust and safety chains" started calling more "all hands" meetings about what they could do to smother this conservative enthusiasm. Eric started digging into Pinterest's product code, employee messages, and policies. The more he dug, the worse it got. The company was quietly blacklisting conservatives, and nobody had any idea.
At first, Live Action thought it was a mistake. Their followers kept trying to pin the pro-life group's messages on their boards and couldn't. Pinterest, it turns out, had blocked LiveAction.org as a porn site -- meaning that none of its links could be posted by users. When Eric got wind of it, he gathered up all of the documents proving that Pinterest was hiding or silencing conservatives and sent them to Project Veritas. James O'Keefe published it, outing Pinterest as another radical liberal operative trying to shut down open debate.

Wooden shampoos, or duels.
Duels sound like more fun, but the leftists would probably cheat by turning around and shooting their opponents too early.
Not if you turn around and shoot them first...
Well, that goes without saying. If they like to take only two (out of three) steps, you simply take only one. :-)
Wooden shampoos, or duels."
Wooden shampoo while running a gauntlet.
Note that it isn’t just LiveAction. Zerohedge and several other conservative or libertarian sites were ALSO blocked as “porn”.
“People come to Pinterest for all kinds of things.”
Not any longer. Pinterest is dead to me. I don’t support the leftist nazi agenda of censorship so they can GFT.
I posted this before, but seems appropriate here. Twice I have had entire boards of dozens/hundreds of photos deleted because they didn’t meet “Community Standards”. They always started out with a bubbly “Hi X, we’ve deleted one of your boards . . .”
The last one was titled “Conservatives”. Funny thing is, a lot of the photos were from Pinterest, with the rest from Arcamax or Briefing Room sites.
They send their emails from a “noreply” address, so I can’t tell them about them and the horse they rode in on.
