Brave Browser: Not as Private as They Want You to Think

But then Facebook and Twitter are the elephants in the room. Facebook, Twitter Trackers Whitelisted by Brave Browser.

The Brave Browser promotes itself on being built from the ground up to provide enhanced privacy to its users. Yet, users voiced concern today after finding a section of the browser’s source code that shows tracking scripts for Facebook and Twitter are whitelisted so that they are not blocked by the browser.

Why? Because not blocking them would cause some sites to break. (Firefox lets me decide how much privacy/breakage I want.)

Twitter Suspends Account of Black Conservative

Can’t have black conservatives supporting Trump. Everyone must thing alike. Twitter Suspends Influential Black Female Trump Supporter’s Account After She Announces She Is Attending TPUSA Event in Washington DC.

Earlier this week Melissa announced on Twitter that she was attending the Black Conservative Summit in Washington DC this week sponsored by Turning Point USA.

Within an hour of posting her announcement on Twitter Melissa was suspended by Twitter.

But they’re not racist, no. Just ask them and they will tell you they love diversity. Just not diversity of ideas.

I’m Almost Disappointed That I’m Not #Shadowbaned

You can check your #ShadowBan status at https://shadowban.eu/.

I guess I need to step up my game some.

There was a list in 2016. Anybody who said anything nice about the Republican candidate, or disparaging about the Democratic candidate was placed on that list, and then a bunch of folks on the Left – who hate open debate (not to mention freedom of speech) – would block everyone on the List. I guess that isn’t enough for the shawdoban threshold.

#WalkAway is a Thing on Twitter

You can’t fool all of the people all of the time. Viral ‘Walk Away’ Videos Highlight Growing Movement of Democrats Leaving the Party. And just when I was getting ready to ditch Twitter.

Some 5 million people on Facebook and YouTube have seen the video by now. A very handsome gay man, who you just assume is about to scold you on progressive talking points, instead says this:

“Once upon a time, I was a liberal. Well, to be honest, less than a year ago, I was still a liberal.

“I reject a system which allows an ambitious, misinformed and dogmatic mob to suppress free speech, create false narratives, and apathetically steamroll over the truth.”

Once upon a time, I voted for Bill Clinton. Gave (relatively) large amounts of money to NPR, and Emily’s list. But after 8 years of William Jefferson Clinton, like James Woods (Who started it all on June 25), I was done. Though I got to the far side of the political spectrum faster than he did. I probably started sooner. I noticed that the Dems and NPR et al really didn’t want me to be able to defend myself. They were rabid about it.

Anyway, I haven’t watched the videos – too many other things in the queue right now. But the hashtag has been fairly amusing. (Though I started this post last night, and haven’t revisited the hashtag this morning.)

Concealed Carry in Action

This is a security cam video of a would-be bad guy accosting a group of women with a gun. He then gets shot when one of the women pulls out her own gun and shoots him once in the chest. Concealed carry stops the bad guy.

I have no info on when this actually occurred or where it happened.
