Siri is Now Refusing to Say the Word “Gun”

Yes, really.

Published

on

Apple’s Siri voice assistant is now apparently refusing to say the word “gun” when used on an iPad.

Tracy Connors tweeted a video of herself attempting to have Siri read out a Daily Caller headline entitled ‘Virginia House of Delegates Passes Gun Ban, Seizure Bill’.

Instead of saying the word ‘gun’, Siri spelled out the letters G-U-N.

“Apple is now our parent and we’re fragile little children who can’t hear scary words,” said Connors.

As far back as 2016, Apple replaced its gun emoji with a water pistol in response to “a series of shootings in the US.”

Apparently, censoring words and changing how cartoon drawings appear is going to stop mass shootings.

Good luck with that, Apple.

Finnish MP On Trial For ‘Hate Speech’ Over Bible Verse

Post described homosexuality as “shameful” and “unnatural”.

The former Finnish Interior Minister is on trial for hate speech over a bible verse that described homosexuality as “shameful” and “unnatural.”

Prosecutors claim that Päivi Räsänen’s remarks are illegal because they represent an “affront to the equality and dignity of homosexuals.”

Räsänen, an MP for Finland’s Christian Democrats party, posted comments criticizing the Finnish Lutheran Church for associating itself with LGBT activist causes.

Accusing the church of “elevating shame and sin to a point of pride,” Räsänen included an image of a bible verse which denounced gay lifestyles as “shameful” and “unnatural.”

“The case is being seen as a test of whether personal religious beliefs can justify controversial language,” reports the BBC, with a Helsinki court considering whether to classify bible passages as hate speech.

The MP was reportedly subjected to hours of police interrogation over her personal beliefs.

Räsänen arrived at court holding a bible before telling reporters she was “honoured to be defending freedom of speech and religion.”

“I hope that today it can become clear that I have no wish to offend any group of people, but this is a question of saving people for eternal life,” said the MP.

Prosecutors are pushing for Räsänen to be reprimanded and fined, although she could technically face a prison sentence.

In a related development, a video posted by Christian pastor John MacArthur which presented the biblical view of gender and sexuality was flagged as “hate speech” and removed by YouTube.

As we highlighted last year, a Christian pastor in the UK was arrested by police on the streets of London after a member of the public reported him for the “homophobic” comment of saying that marriage was between a man and a woman.

While the LGBT movement still claims to represent people who are being ‘oppressed’, it enjoys the support of every major cultural institution, media outlet and woke corporate entity in the west.

It can also rely on the power of the state in numerous European countries to literally imprison people who merely question the morality of what the LGBT movement represents.

Neil Young’s Attempt to Pressure Spotify to Censor Joe Rogan Fails Miserably

Another one bites the dust.

Published

Musician Neil Young’s attempt to force Spotify to censor Joe Rogan’s podcast has failed miserably, with Young deleting the open letter he posted on his website.

The 70’s rocker tried to give Spotify an ultimatum that they had to remove Rogan or delete his music catalogue.

Young accused Spotify of “spreading fake information about vaccines” because Rogan dares to have in depth discussions with esteemed doctors who don’t blindly follow the COVID narrative.

“I am doing this because Spotify is spreading fake information about vaccines – potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them,” he wrote. “Please act on this immediately today and keep me informed of the time schedule.”

“I want you to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all my music off their platform,” he added. “They can have Rogan or Young. Not both.”

While Young may have got some traction on Twitter from the usual crowd of COVID bedwetters and censorship freaks, his efforts have proven completely futile.

Indeed, Spotify is yet to even offer an official response to his public relations stunt.

The singer-songwriter appears to have already backed out of the ultimatum given that he deleted the open letter he had posted to his website.

“Young likely realized that he has no grounds to make the demands. Rogan has an exclusive deal with Spotify and Young sold 50% of the rights to his music to a British investment company a year ago,” writes Christina Maas.

Neil Young’s public hissy fit merely appears to have been a play for attention given that he, like Howard Stern, who also routinely attacks Rogan, is becoming increasingly irrelevant.

Specifically, Rogan enjoys an average of over 11 million listeners per episode, with some hitting as high as 40 million, while Young attracts 6 million listeners per month in comparison.

Indeed, the musician previously demanded that Donald Trump stop playing his hit ‘Rockin’ in the Free World’ at his rallies, only to subsequently admit he had no legal power to do so.

“DT does not have my permission to use the song ‘Rockin’ In The Free World’ at his appearances,” said Young in 2018. “Legally, he has the right to, however it goes against my wishes.”

This is the second time in the space of two weeks that a lobbying campaign to have Rogan deplatformed has failed.

The mainstream media tried to hype a letter supposedly ‘signed by 270’ doctors demanding Spotify cancel Rogan, only for it to swiftly emerge that the majority of the signatories were not medical doctors.

German Government Demands Big Tech Crack Down On Telegram, Other Free Speech Apps

Tells Apple and Google that Telegram is “a form of accelerator for right-wing extremism and conspiracy theories”

Following threats to shut down the pro free speech encrypted messaging platform Telegram, the German government has stepped up its efforts by putting pressure on Apple and Google to take a more hands on approach to limiting the content people are sharing on the app.

Federal Interior Minister Nancy Faeser claimed that the app is contributing to an acceleration of “right-wing extremism” and “conspiracy theories,” in the country.

The minister tweeted “We remind #Apple and #Google of their social responsibility. As long as they offer apps like #Telegram in their stores, they are also a form of accelerator for #right-wing extremism and #conspiracy theories. No place for #hate and #calls for murder!”

In another tweet, Faeser asserted “Everyone has the #right to peaceful assembly. We draw the line when it comes to #hate and #baiting. #Right-wing extremists are increasingly abusing the #Corona demos for their ideology against the #state. We will crack down there with consistent #law enforcement.”

A further statement statement from Germany’s regional interior ministers specifically noted that those organising against the government’s COVID restrictions are using Telegram.

“The social network Telegram and comparable providers serve people in Germany as a networking [platform for Covid protest movements], corona deniers and right-wing radicals,” the statement read.

Last week, Faeser told the German media “We cannot rule this out,” when asked if the platform will be targeted for censorship.

“A shutdown would be grave and clearly a last resort. All other options must be exhausted first,” Faeser clarified.

The minister also told the newspaper that while it is currently unclear what legal action would be needed to shut down the platform, the German government is in consultation with the European Union regarding potential regulation of it.

The Epoch Times notes that in Germany, which has implemented some of the most severe pandemic restrictions, “Telegram has been used as a hub of communication for the protest movement against the measures established to fight the CCP virus, including lockdowns, intermittent mask mandates, and restrictions for the unvaccinated.”

Telegram has been shut down or blocked in other countries including Iran, China, Pakistan, India, Thailand, and Russia.

The platform saw a huge surge in users last year after Facebook owned Watts App introduced a controversial privacy update which led to concerns that the app would hand over user data to its parent company. It also came at the same time as President Trump’s purge from big tech social media platforms.

Telegram founder Pavel Durov warned that people are “being held hostage by tech monopolies.”

In addition to being independent from big tech, Telegram promises robust end-to-end encryption, ensuring messages remain private.

This has made Telegram a target for authoritarians and big tech monopolists.

In the U.S. lobbyist group The Coalition for a Safer Web even filed a lawsuit against Apple in an effort to get Telegram removed from the app store, claiming that it allows ‘extremists’ to spread ‘hate speech’.
