Google owns Youtube. He certainly has not been deplatformed there. The first 21 results for Thunderf00t scio busted are links to his vids, and there are more below.
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

Yeah, Thunderf00t must be a crazy, for saying google is 'airbrushing him out of history'.

Or, there is selective deplatforming for some reason. (I'm pretty sure that DOES happen, so ... ?)

I enjoyed tf00t's dismantling of creationist canards in the old days. Not so much his latter-day mansplaining misogyny though.

Rebel News just reported a story in London (UK) where a young girl was groped, but the police refused to press charges against the adult who did it.

If the media were biased against the girls father, that would explain the behaviour...episode is titled 'Lawfare it it's worse'

When Tommy Robinson starts harassing white-British sexual abusers on their way to court, or blindly asserting that a white-British 16yo deserves to be filmed being bullied because 'he violently attacks young Muslim girls in his school', then I might start believing he's not a racist bigot.

One person's moral turpitude doesn't justify another's turpitude in response.

The BBC's flag ship nightly news show Newsnight had Nigel Farage on this week to talk about Teh Virus. It seems that in a time of crisis any old chancer with an axe to grind instantly becomes an expert in epidemiology.

Keep in mind that only a week ago, these same morons were downplaying the severity of this virus and admonishing Democrats for politicizing it.

What would Chinese Communist Party propaganda look like?

Would you know it if you saw it? Have you purchased a map lately, and if so, did it have the extended borders included for China?

All the maps printed under the authority of China's government include Tiawan as part of china. It isn't, according to Taiwan. This kind of media bias is tough to see, in part I think because no-one thinks of that government as producing propaganda outside their borders.

If you bought or ordered maps printed, odds are they include the extended borders.

Fox News should go out of business for this, but it won't of course, because this country has a pandemic of stupid...

That Trump tweet about there being 546 confirmed cases (at that relatively early stage) and only 22 deaths. Regardless of FOX NEWS' incredulity that's still just over a 4% mortality rate, and their repeating of the White Houses earlier lies about the infection rate of the virus are wholly unsupportable and in Public Health terms negligent. As I said earlier, the confirmed cases will only be a small fraction of the total number of infected individuals, the fraction sick enough to be hospitalised and subsequently tested. What we need now is information on the proportion of those infected whose symptoms become serious enough to require medical intervention - but without widespread, systematic testing there's a big black hole in the epidemiological data.

As for the Daily Telegraph report on China: I think it's wholly remiss of the UK media to not apply the same level of scrutiny to the response of the government at home.

Of we go again. I would ignore all data coming from the American government. The truth will be never known. By making massive presumptions does not help either.
