A British reader left this comment early this morning:
I’ve just discovered that this site is now blocked by Sky (major British ISP) in the United Kingdom as being a hate site. This has only happened in the last few days as I have been accessing it fine for several years. I can change the settings so that it is an allowed site, but I wonder if this may end up with me being put on some kind of watch list. Looks like I may have to start using this Tor dark web browser thingey after all.
Another reader sends this link to a forum discussion from 2012 about site-blocking by Sky. However, this seems to have pertained only to Pirate Bay and kiddie porn sites.
So what’s happened in the last few days? Could Sky’s new policy be a reaction to the latest Hate not Hope “report” on the dangers of the Counterjihad? Gates of Vienna was featured in that, as usual. I rated an entire section! Of which I was quietly proud, even though Mr. Lowles’ inimitable prose was riddled with numerous factual errors — after all, no one’s perfect.
For readers who may have missed this important milestone, the HnH report is discussed by its compliant mouthpiece, the Grauniad. For a less slavishly promotional discussion, see Breitbart, here and here. The material in the report is almost entirely a rehash of previous stuff from the post-Breivik period — much of it inaccurate — with a thin overlay of alarm about Donald Trump, who seems to have provided Nick Lowles with a marvelous fundraising opportunity.
