So this morning, while checking out the news and tracking enemies of freedom, faith, and civilization; I checked through some of the Red Pill blogs and saw this:
Yes---the execrable Chateau Heartiste is no more; joining The Daily Stormer, Alpha Game Plan, Return of Kings, and The Red Pill and INCEL Subreddits into long-overdue and well-deserved oblivion. The Chateau Heartiste probably did more damage, however, to the cause of men's rights than the aforementioned ones combined.
The Chateau was the brainchild of a NGO bureaucrat living inside the Beltway named Jim Weidmann. It's undergone many name-changes over the past 12 years or so, but the message was the same. Weidmann is a rabid White Supremacist, anti-Semite and anti-Christian, latent homosexual, and sleazy Pick-up Artist. He was a major force in co-opting the Manosphere and infecting the Alt-Right with his venom. Such Red Pill cultists and extremists as Dalrock, Vox Day, Roosh V, Andrew Anglin, Ricky Vaughn, Rollo Tomassi, and Matt Forney were all Chateau readers. Even Alex Jones penned a tribute to him.
A pair of Weidmann's imitators---bloggers Aeoli Pera and Captain Capitalism---announced that they are taking 'vacations' after the Heartiste ban. Just a coincidence, surely.
Wordpress hasn't issued any explanation for the ban, but this hasn't stopped anyone from claiming 'censorship' is at play here. I'm not sure why Conservatives miss this important point; but Wordpress and other similar companies happen to be private entities. They are not obligated to follow a Strict-Constructionist interpretation of the 1st Amendment. The Bill of Rights applies to government; private institutions set their own policies. When one reads the User Guidelines at Wordpress, we see that they are not especially onerous. Basically, they prohibit criminal activities, incitement to violence, doxxing---but that's about it. As in many other recent cases, Weidmann didn't get suspended for what he said, but for what he did. Weidmann actually has another Wordpress site called Goodbye, America. Weidmann hasn't posted there in about six weeks, but the blog is still up and comments are published there. So much for 'censorship'.
I would suspect that Weidmann was suspended over the 'incitement to violence' clause. He was endlessly writing about the supposed 'necessity' of a race-war. It's also interesting to note that the perpetrators of our two most recent synagogue shootings were admitted readers of Chateau Heartiste. Whatever the reason for the ban, the disappearance of that site is no great loss to the world.
