When Internet companies began banning “hate” and bouncing white supremacists from their services, we cried in alarm that what could be done to them could be done to us — to libertarians, to gun-rights activists, to defenders of the Bill of Rights, to anyone whose opinions some Silicon Valley hotshot decided to hate today.
But I think we at least expected there’d be a fairly long slippery slope and that we weren’t even actually on the edge of that slope yet.
But no. It has already begun.
Brad R., who’s been as much on top of this issue as anyone around, reports that libertarian/gun-rights hero Cody Wilson has also been kicked off CloudFlare. That is his GhostGunner.net is no longer entitled to CloudFlare protection.
Brad notes, “Now, folks, gun rights are not an ‘alt-right’ issue. They’re a libertarian issue, and to a lesser extent a conservative issue. (Conservatives seem to like the right to own guns, but are wishy-washy on the right to manufacture your own guns at home.)”
