David Kupelian explains what’s really behind Big Tech’s all-out attack on 25-year-old Christian journalism site
Dear friend of WND,
As you probably have heard, Google in its latest attempt to permanently do away with WND has gone for the “kill shot” and totally de-monetized the site, which is already killing the advertising revenue on which we depend for our survival.
Why are they doing this?
Google hasn’t held back in telling us exactly what it finds “dangerous,” “derogatory,” “misrepresentative,” “unreliable” and “harmful” – their words – about our 25-year-old pioneering Christian news website.
“We do not allow content,” the Google overlords explain, “that incites hatred against, promotes discrimination of, or disparages an individual or group on the basis of their race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, age, nationality, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or other characteristic that is associated with systemic discrimination or marginalization.”
Of course, all this pained moralizing over WND’s supposed “hatred” and “discrimination” toward people who are military veterans, disabled, elderly and so on is idiotic. That’s all just window dressing to camouflage what Google really wants to absolutely protect from any criticism or opposing viewpoint whatsoever. And that’s “sexual orientation” and “gender identity.” Indeed, when as a news organization we dare to report honestly on the absolutely deranged transgender agenda – where young children are encouraged and enabled to “transition to the opposite gender” by taking cross-sex hormones and even undergoing irreversible amputation surgery, where boys in dresses can rape teenage girls in school restrooms but be ignored by the school board, where “biological men” can compete in and destroy women’s competitive swimming and other athletics, and where a man who identifies as a woman is hailed as “the first female 4-star admiral in history” – when we sound the alarm over any of this, which we do every day, Google says we’re “inciting hatred” and “promoting discrimination.”
There’s more. Google also tells WND it does “not allow content that … promotes harmful health claims, or relates to a current, major health crisis and contradicts authoritative scientific consensus.”
Oh I see, so reporting truthfully on the Biden administration’s absolutely deranged and tyrannical mismanagement of the COVID pandemic – from imposing vaccine mandates that are shutting down the country and throwing tens of thousands of nurses, paramedics, police, firemen and other frontline heroes out of work, to suppressing early outpatient treatment of COVID with inexpensive, proven-safe-and-effective medications that could have prevented hundreds of thousands of COVID deaths in America, to pretending “natural immunity” isn’t real even though at least 92 studies prove it’s superior to vaccine immunity in every way – is not allowed. Only the official narrative – the one that is failing at every turn to end the pandemic, while driving up suicide, addiction, depression and crime rates across the nation, and introducing a level of authoritarianism never before seen in America – is allowed.
But let’s dig a little deeper. Let’s venture beneath Google’s woke moralizing about all the “marginalized” and “underserved communities” WND is offending, and how we’re spreading “COVID misinformation” even though the actual science is totally on our side. Let’s dare to confront what is really bugging Google, why the mega-monopoly is so manically intent on taking down WND and making sure you are never again able to read it.
Though disguised as Google’s high-minded moral concern over “accurate and beneficial information,” what we’re really beholding is a worldview in thrall to very dark forces, a worldview that lusts after power and glory and worship, one that ignores reality at every turn, while manifesting an abiding contempt for biology, for the lessons of history, for the fundamental laws of economics, for the transcendent value of human life, and especially, for Almighty God and His laws.
That’s what we’re really contending with. That’s what is trying to take us down.
So, in light of this daunting reality facing us, what on earth can we do?
The brilliant futurist George Gilder wrote a stunning book called “Life After Google,” providing an insightful and ultimately hopeful view of what the Internet could be in a future era when the Marxist Big Tech oligarch tyrants lose their monopoly control.
If I may, I’d like to ask you to help WND be part of our own version of Life After Google right now! We need an alternate source of financial support, now that Google is trying to extinguish us. And that, dear friends, would be you – you who appreciate and value WND, who love and cherish the same things as we do – our God, our country, our Judeo-Christian values and culture. Everything that once made America, as Ronald Reagan put it, “a shining city on a hill.”
As this year comes to an end, kindly consider stepping up and helping us replace Google with a more fitting and reliable source of support and sustenance in these very troubled times.
Please help keep us alive. We are always struggling to make payroll and to fend off the continual stream of new attacks, crises, lawsuits, misfortunes, hacks, demands and threats directed our way. Don’t get me wrong; we wear this persecution as a badge of honor. As Col. Oliver North once observed about wartime service, “If you’re not getting shot at, it means you’re not flying over enemy territory.” We know why they’re doing this to us. But we still live and operate in this world, and we need to pay our bills or we cease to exist. It’s that simple.
In case you didn’t know, we took the trouble to do what a few other forward-thinking news organizations have done – to form a 501(c)3 nonprofit charity called the WND News Center. This IRS-approved nonprofit is dedicated to promoting “independent, fearless, truthful news and analysis in an age of rapidly increasing lies and deception” and “shining a bright and honest journalistic light on today’s world, including the lawless political and cultural forces that daily threaten Americans’ happiness, well-being, security and freedom.”
I’m asking you today to really think hard and prayerfully about all this, and then to consider making a generous, year-end, tax-deductible donation to the Christian nonprofit WND News Center.
You may also mail your tax-deductible contribution by making your check out to “WND News Center” and mailing it to: WND News Center, P.O. Box 100, 580 E Street, Hawthorne, NV 89415-0100.
Thank you so much for all your past support, and for helping in any way you are moved to do now, in our time of need.
May God bless you and yours,
