Voyage Of The Banned

For anyone unfamiliar with it, the title of this article is a play on Voyage Of The Damned. It is a book and a movie about a ship of Jewish folks trying to escape Germany in 1939… and the trials and tribulations of it all.

My thought is fairly simple. Perhaps we can “crowd source” a list of sites that have been banned, shadow banned, stats shadow banned, etc. and provide links to their alternative locations.

So, for example, InfoWars was banned from Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Paypal, but still has a web site here:


He also has a new video source on what was “” and is now renamed to Brighteon:
“ is now Same owners, new name. All videos and accounts preserved. ”

And Bitchute:

Plus it is on the Roku:

Rightside Broadcasting

Is still up on YouTube, but has been de-monitized, so why not watch it directly from their site instead? Why fund YouTube if they are screwing over Rightside Broadcasting?

In fact, you could even go further and ‘demonitize’ YouTube by watching all your “YouTubes” via an ad and tracking removing process like:


Similarly, Whatfinger is being stats-shadow banned:

Stefan Molyneux

Found on Twitter:

Runs a web site:


I didn’t find him on / Brighteon but with the name change my search-foo may be off…

In General

You get the idea. A listing of folks worth watching or listening too, who have been banned, and alternative places to find them. Perhaps some statement about the nature of the ban, too; such as “gone” or “demonitized, watch via Invideous”.

I would like to have a list of “folks worth watching and listening to” anyway. A nice list could quickly get folks reconnected with their favorites but also with new “favorites to be”.

Yes, it could serve as something of a guide to “the opposition” as to where to attempt quashing next. But frankly, if the “new alternative” folks have 1/2 a brain they will realize they can collect 1/4 to 1/2 of YouTube and Twitter and Facebook business just by NOT banning the half of the country with conservative values.

I could also see a general purpose section that says “Here are alternatives to the Left Wing Only censoring site of FOO:” perhaps with a preferred and a second and third tier choices as well. such as the next section.

General Twitter Alternative

A whole lot of folks got chased of Twitter and went to

Another Twitter alternative is “Twister” that is all peer-2-peer:

There are also many other alternatives listed here:

Mastodon, Minds, Diaspora, Tumbler, GNU Social, Friendica, Known, Ello, ZeroMe, Patchwork, Libertree, Musteus, Pumpio, Openbook, Plurk, Hawaar, THINK thenlive, BroadTags, Grewpler, Amino, Pawoo, Plag, Kweknet,, MeWe, Tweet It!, MicroBlog, Chaino, Futurenet, …..and many many more.

So perhaps some kind of evaluation of the alternatives and a subset needs to be identified.

In Conclusion

What do folks think of something like that? I know it would rapidly become a huge list, so eventually some kind of sorting and searching / organizing would be needed. At least at first, though, it could just be a list of comments here on where your favorites have gone and how to find them.

Eventually I could make it a tab up top so it would be easy to find. As it stands now, I’m having trouble remembering where all folks have gone, especially for ones I only occasionally watched. Collecting a guide to the diaspora would be easiest if done now, while they are fresh in our awareness and the need it urgent.

    Excellent idea.
    Someone could perhaps set up some kind of logical DNS automated table lookup to access these services. Even a cross referenced table with URLs to the uncensored locations would become a huge draw for traffic.

  2. E.M.Smith says:

    @Ian W:

    Interesting idea… A “front end” proxy server that maps down to the specific URL not just the site DNS… So a lookup of “” would map to “” and return the page… That can work but takes effort…

    We’ll see if there’s any interest. If folks don’t even want to contribute their favorite site URLs then …

    Thanks, Terry, I’ll work it and put them in the top post “soon”.

    “That can work but takes effort… “

    There is a whole industry devoted to exactly that.

    Just a marker that has been de-platformed ATM. They expect to “recandle” soonish, but for now it’s offline.

    Gab has spent the past 48 hours proudly working with the DOJ and FBI to bring justice to an alleged terrorist. Because of the data we provided, they now have plenty of evidence for their case. In the midst of this Gab has been no-platformed by essential internet infrastructure providers at every level. We are the most censored, smeared, and no-platformed startup in history, which means we are a threat to the media and to the Silicon Valley Oligarchy.

    Gab isn’t going anywhere.

    It doesn’t matter what you write. It doesn’t matter what the sophist talking heads say on TV. It doesn’t matter what verified nobodies say on Twitter. We have plenty of options, resources, and support. We will exercise every possible avenue to keep Gab online and defend free speech and individual liberty for all people.

    You have all just made Gab a nationally recognized brand as the home of free speech online at a time when Silicon Valley is stifling political speech they disagree with to interfere in a US election.

    The internet is not reality. TV is not reality. 80% of normal everyday people agree with Gab and support free expression and liberty. The online outrage mob and mainstream media spin machine are the minority opinion. People are waking up, so please keep pointing the finger at a social network instead of pointing the finger at the alleged shooter who holds sole responsibility for his actions.

    No-platform us all you want. Ban us all you want. Smear us all you want.

    You can’t stop an idea.

    As we transition to a new hosting provider Gab will be inaccessible for a period of time. We are working around the clock to get back online. Thank you and remember to speak freely.

    I’ll put a note here when it returns.
