Pippi the cat, at some indeterminate point before he bites me

After October 7th, every American media company came under wartime censorship. Censorship usually refers to state action, but America is ruled by corporations, so it’s a moot point. The Board of every US media company has a Zionist member on it, and the place I made most of my money — Medium — was no exception.

Benjamin Horowitz is on the Medium Corporation board and Andreessen Horowitz has major investments in ‘Israel’. Along with with every media company in the greater White Empire, they have aggressively deplatformed the great rebellion of Palestine. Poets like Refaat Alareer have been demonized and assassinated and plodders like me have been merely demonetized. See for yourself:


I won’t make a graph for you because I can’t be assed. You can see the cliff after October 2023. The previous fallow period (April 2023 and before) is when I was working full-time and barely blogging

Medium was the hand that fed me, and I mean no malice as I bite it. But, you know, CHOMP CHOMP. So long, and thanks for all the fish. I always thought it was odd that an American company paid me and I don’t find it unodd if they don’t feel like it.
