Apparently the girly-boys at National Review Online could not stand the heat of the immigration patriots, Alt-Right, Trump supporters, and nationalists, posting critical comments on their pro-globalist, RINO, and neoconservative articles.

They have decided to ditch the open, very robust Disqus internet comments engine for an exclusive conduit from Facebook that has a potential for censorship.  [NRO Is Moving to Facebook Comments by Charles C. W. Cooke August 4, 2016]

Yes, Facebook, whose CEO Mark Zuckerberg is an open borders radical who created the pro-immigration website FWD.us.  Zuckerberg’s company Facebook also collaborates with the neo-Stasi regime of Germany’s Angela Merkel in facilitating censorship and persecution of immigration patriots and nationalists in that nation.

“To this, [British reporter Douglas] Murray adds the disturbing September incident in which German chancellor Angela Merkel was caught on an open mike, asking Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg if he would help suppress “anti-immigration” postings… and he replied that he was already working on it.”

Another significant factor (that NRO is obviously fully aware of) is the loss of anonymity for posters to NRO who are now forced to use FB.  This will have the effect of suppressing opinions that are not in accordance with the liberal hegemony, because running afoul of that can lead to extremely adverse personal and professional consequences.

Ironically, NRO’s cult-like position on unrestricted “free trade” obviously does not apply to the free market of ideas on its website from comments posters—or from various writers who have been purged over the years.

However, there is consolation to this restrictive action as it demonstrates their fear of the increasing numbers of people from the Dissident Right who disdain the sell-outs of National Review and “Conservatism Inc.”.

Furthermore, the revenue generating “click count” on NRO will definitely be taking a hit.  So adieu, NRO, it has been wicked fun eviscerating your stupid articles, dullard writers, and dimwitted counter-posters to my comments, but your act of cowardice will make many relish your descent into irrelevancy even more.
