Protecting child abusers while attacking free speech seems to be Big Tech’s modus operandi.
By Shane Trejo
In the wake of two mass shootings over the weekend, tech services company Cloudflare announced that they were denying service to 8chan, the controversial free speech website where killers have posted their manifestos.
Cloudflare wrote a blog where they congratulated themselves for enforcing censorship and taking another step on the road to Big Brother.
“We just sent notice that we are terminating 8chan as a customer effective at midnight tonight Pacific Time. The rationale is simple: they have proven themselves to be lawless and that lawlessness has caused multiple tragic deaths. Even if 8chan may not have violated the letter of the law in refusing to moderate their hate-filled community, they have created an environment that revels in violating its spirit,” they wrote.
However, despite their haughty virtue signaling, Cloudflare gives service and protection to websites that promote pedophiles and the serial victimization of children.
NOTE: We are not listing the actual names of these websites because we do not want to drive traffic to these predatory entities hosted by Cloudflare.
One such website is a Facebook-style web platform that allows pedophiles to gather, share tips, and meet children for the purposes of depraved and illegal sex acts. Cloudflare is listed as the current provider for Domain Name System (DNS) services for this website.
This pedophile haven is serviced by Cloudflare.
Another website serviced by Cloudflare is a portal that serves as a hub for “Virtuous Pedophiles,” a movement designed to rehabilitate pedophiles and normalized their disgusting urges in the eyes of the public. This perverse movement even has a WikiPedia page that reads as follows:
Virtuous Pedophiles is an Internet-based mutual support group for pedophiles who acknowledge having a sexual interest in children and do not act on their attraction. Members support each other in trying to lead normal lives without committing child sexual abuse. Members share the belief that sexual activity between adults and children is wrong and always will be. They also work against the stigma attached to pedophiles. The two founders of the group use the pseudonyms Ethan Edwards and Nick Devin. They do not reveal their true identity because they fear ostracism and hatred against their stigmatized psychological disorder. There are over 2000 users registered,
Liberal rag Salon even ran a piece sympathizing with one organizer in which the man was painted as a figure worthy of praise rather than scorn for masturbating in a bathroom while working as a babysitter for a 5-year-old girl.
Salon was forced to take the video down after widespread anger, but it was archived here:
This movement is aided and abetted by Cloudflare, who provides DNS services to allow these individuals to meet and build a movement of acceptance for their vile actions.
Cloudflare’s services allow “Virtuous Pedophiles” to spread their propaganda to the world.
With Cloudflare picking and choosing who they conduct business without neutrality based on their subjective morals, could doing business with known pedophiles and facilitating their networking abilities be seen as an endorsement for those illicit activities?
Cloudflare accused 8Chan of violating the “spirit” of the law and proving “themselves to be lawless” by refusing to restrict freedom. In issuing that judgment, Cloudflare implies that the pro-pedophilia websites enabled by the tech firm are essentially lawful and just.
