Rob Harper, also known as the Conservative Black Cowboy, has been an outspoken critic of the Left’s continued attempts to cancel conservatives from public life. He’s also consistently pointed out that their claims of systemic racism are factually inaccurate. The irony is that the truly systemic racist ideology is coming from the Democrat platform.
Cancel Culture has become the chief strategy among the Left’s corporations, such as Google, Twitter and Facebook, to attempt to keep indefinite control of America. While Americans used to be ok with differences of opinions, that is no longer tolerable. You are expected to either go along with the mainstream narrative or you have no place in civil society.
It all started with the fringe characters like Alex Jones and Milo Yiannopoulos, who had very little support when they were deplatformed from the Big Tech platforms. Many conservatives did not see the slippery slope and how quickly our society would slide right off the edge of the cliff. Within a matter of just a couple years, we’ve gotten to the point where the President of the United States of America was cancelled and deplatformed, and his followers received much of the same treatment.
Because the Left are the ones in control of the Big Tech overlords, who are actually more powerful than our own Federal government in many ways, they’ve crammed down our throats all sorts of propaganda, including the myth of systemic racism, white privilege and Critical Race Theory. The irony in that argument is that it is the Democrat platform is that is flat out racist, pushing the narrative that minorities are “less than.” Nothing could be further from the truth, yet the Democrats are implementing policy that is intended to bring harm to these communities in the name of “anti-racism.” This is causing extreme harm to our nation moving forward.
As Conservatives, we’ve allowed this to happen to ourselves by not innovating. A lot of this has to do with the fact that the Right is consistently defensive and reactionary, as opposed to being on the offensive and forging our own path forward. Where were the Conservative techies developing Free Speech platforms that had the capabilities of competing with Facebook, Twitter and YouTube?
Have we learned from our mistakes in not being prepared for the Left pulling the rug out from under us? It doesn’t appear so. Sure, there’s a few people attempting to create alternatives, but they are all subpar and nowhere near the capabilities of the current Big Tech platforms. It’s time that somebody attempts to not just create an alternative, but create something superior.
Especially in light of the upcoming Vaccine Passports, which will severely limit those who refuse to get the COVID-19 vaccine from participating in the economy, we are going to have to create our ecosystem that is safeguarded from Big Corporations and Big Government censorship and deplatforming.
Stay tuned, because we may just have something up our sleeves in the very near future that will be the solution to all of these problems.
Big Tech censorship has been expanding beyond just Conservatives… Christians are next!
While many of us have been warning about the coming persecution of Christians, I don’t think any of us thought that it would be ramping up so quickly. While we are luckily not facing physical persecution yet, such as beatings or death, we are facing censorship, deplatforming and even jail time in some instances. These are just the birth pangs of what is coming next.
While we still have a voice here at The GateKeepers, we are doing everything that we can to bypass the algorithmic walls put up by Big Tech and the Social Media companies like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. Our videos used to get thousands of views across all of our platforms, while now they are being throttled and hardly getting distributed at all. An added wrinkle is that, while our video content is seeing lower views, traffic to our website has never been higher. Over the past year we’ve seen a 700% increase in traffic, and it’s been amazing to experience this kind of growth. Because of this, we’ll be launching GKTV very soon, hosting all of our shows exclusively on our platform.
While The GateKeepers started out as nothing more than a blog for me to post my articles relating to concerns within Christianity, it has now expanded into a full-fledged Christian podcast network featuring fifteen shows, a publishing company that has published three books over the past year and we are now hosting conferences on a regular basis. We’ve seen the addition of contributors to The GateKeepers such as Denise McAllister, Pastor Cary Gordon, Pastor Ken Peters, Dr Mike Spaulding, Dr Bobby Lopez and many other amazing Christian leaders. Our lineup of shows has expanded, as well, featuring shows such as The Shining Light Podcast, Conversations with Jeff, The Big Brown Gadfly, Battlefront: SouthGate and The Verum Monitae Report with Dr Mike Spaulding, in addition the the several other shows we also carry on The GateKeepers.
Everything that we do is for the purpose of expanding Biblical Christianity through the preaching of the Gospel, the exposition of God's Word and confronting error where it pops its ugly head within the Church. We are mission-focused first, and then we use technology, books, resources and events to accomplish and further the Gospel and Biblical theology.
While we’ve seen some amazing growth and expansion, we are also working hard to make this be a long-term play, and with that comes with how to fund our work here. I’ve intentionally not turned The GateKeepers into a non-profit organization because I don’t want to become beholden to the government, and I also don’t want to be focused on sending out fundraising letters constantly begging for money like most non-profit ministries do.
Instead, we have our online book store, are hosting online conferences and have our Plugged In membership program. Right now we are funded exclusively through these three different avenues. We are especially excited about our Plugged In membership, as this brings so much added value to you as a thank you for supporting our work here at The GateKeepers.
Becoming a Plugged In member provides access to the weekly episode of The GateKeepers Podcast, the monthly episode of Connected, free access to all of our online conferences, the recordings from previous online conferences and 30% off in The GK Store. If you would like to support us by becoming a Plugged In member, click here.
However, we’ve also been getting a lot of requests from supporters asking how they can donate to help support The GateKeepers. We are extremely grateful for these requests, as this will help us to expand even further and provide more quality Biblical content. If you would like to help support to The GateKeepers, you can donate through PayPal here.
