Karl Marx’s legacy is death. Over 100 million human beings dead in 100 years of Marxism.
This does not include the the suffering, pain and abject poverty Marxism brought to this world.
But that won’t stop today’s left from pushing this godless doctrine on the masses once again. In fact real energy behind the Democrat Party today is its Socialist wing.
Socialist Bernie Sanders almost won the Democrat primary this year just like he almost did in 2016.
For the past several years Teen Vogue has gone further and further to the left. In 2019 Teen Vogue wrote that patriotic anthems are racist on the 4th of July.
Within 1 hour, Reddit banned 2000 subs-almost all right wing, Twitch banned Trump’s account, Youtube banned Stefan Molyneux, Twitter banned Sidney Powell, and the MSM all had long ass articles ready to go to praise it.
After just over a month in his new job as head of the newly formed NBC-Universal News Group, combining NBC News, MSNBC, CNBC, and all streaming operations, Cesar Conde is making news himself. In a video and memo to the approximately 3,000 employees he supervises, Conde announced a goal of 50% of employees being female and 50% “people of color,” an expression commonly taken to mean non-Caucasians.
Since Caucasians account for more than 76% of the United States population according to the Census Bureau, this amounts to a vow of racial discrimination.
There are substantial privacy and civil liberty issues with DuckDuckGo. Here they are spot-lighted:
Nefarious History of DDG founder & CEO:
DDG’s founder (Gabriel Weinberg) has a history of privacy abuse, starting with his founding of Names DB, a surveillance capitalist service designed to coerce naive users to submit sensitive information about their friends. (2006)
Weinberg’s motivation for creating DDG was not actually to “spread privacy”; it was to create something big, something that would compete with big players. As a privacy abuser during the conception of DDG (Names Database), Weinberg sought to become a big-name legacy. Privacy is Weinberg’s means (not ends) in that endeavor. Clearly he doesn’t value privacy – he values perception of privacy.
Direct Privacy Abuse:
DDG’s app sends every URL you visit to DDG servers. (reaction).
DDG is accused of fingerprinting users’ browsers.
When clicking an ad on the DDG results page, all data available in your session is sent to the advertiser, which is why the Epic browser project refuses to set DDG as the default browser.
DDG blacklisted Framabee, a search engine for the highly respected framasoft.org consortium.
Some people replace Google with DDG in order to avoid censorship. DDG is not the answer.
DDG is complying with the “celebrity threesome injunction”.
CloudFlare: DDG promotes one of the largest privacy abusing tech giants and adversary to the Tor community: CloudFlare Inc. DDG results give high rankings to CloudFlare sites, which consequently compromises privacy, net neutrality, and anonymity:
Anonymity: CloudFlare DoS attacks Tor users, causing substantial damage to the Tor network.
Privacy: All CloudFlare sites are surreptitiously MitM’d by design.
Net neutrality: CloudFlare’s attack on Tor users causes access inequality, the centerpiece to net neutrality.
DDG T-shirts are sold using a CloudFlare site, thus surreptitiously sharing all order information (name, address, credit card, etc) with CloudFlare despite their statement at the bottom of the page saying “DuckDuckGo is an Internet privacy company that empowers you to seamlessly take control of your personal information online, without any tradeoffs.” (2019)
DDG hired CloudFlare to host spreadprivacy.com (2019)
Harmful Partnerships with Adversaries of Privacy Seekers:
DDG patronizes privacy-abuser Amazon, using AWS for hosting.
Amazon is making an astronomical investment in facial recognition which will destroy physical travel privacy
Amazon uses Ring and Alexa to surveil neighborhoods and the inside of homes.
Amazon paid $195k to fight privacy in CA. (also see http://cal-access.sos.ca.gov/Campaign/Committees/Detail.aspx?id=1401518&view=late1)
Amazon runs sweat shops, invests in climate denial, etc… the list of non-privacy related harms is too long to list here.
DDG feeds privacy-abuser Microsoft by patronizing the Bing API for search results and uses Outlook email service.
Microsoft Office products violate the GDPR (the Dutch government discovered numerous violations)
Microsoft finances AnyVision to equip the Israeli military with facial recognition to be used against the Palestinians who they oppress.
Microsoft paid $195k to fight privacy in CA. (also see http://cal-access.sos.ca.gov/Campaign/Committees/Detail.aspx?id=1401518&view=late1)
DDG hires Microsoft for email service: torsocks dig @126.96.36.199 mx duckduckgo.com +tcp | grep -E ‘^\w’ ==> “…duckduckgo-com.mail.protection.outlook.com”
DDG is partnered with Yahoo (aka Oath; plus Verizon and AOL by extension). DDG helps Yahoo profit by patronizing Yahoo’s API for search results, and also through advertising. The Verizon corporate conglomerate is evil in many ways:
Yahoo, Verizon, and AOL all supported CISPA (unwarranted surveillance bills)
Yahoo, Verizon, and AOL all use DNSBLs to block individuals from running their own mail servers, thus forcing an over-share of e-mail metadata with a relay.
Verizon and AOL both drug test their employees, thus intruding on their privacy outside of the workplace.
Verizon supports the TTP treaty.
Yahoo voluntarily ratted out a human rights journalist (Shi Tao) to the Chinese gov w/out warrant, leading to his incarceration.
Verizon received $16.8 billion in Trump tax breaks, then immediately laid off thousands of workers.
(2014) Verizon fined $7.4 million for violating customers’ privacy
(2016) Verizon fined $1.35 million for violating customers’ privacy
(2018) Verizon paid $200k to fight privacy in CA. See also this page
(2018) Verizon caught taking voice prints?
more dirt (scroll down to Verizon)
(2016) Yahoo caught surreptitiously monitoring Yahoo Mail messages for the NSA.
Advertising Abuses & Corruption:
DDG consumed a room at FOSDEM 2018 to deliver a sales pitch despite its proprietary non-free server code, then dashed out without taking questions. Shame on FOSDEM organizers for allowing this corrupt abuse of precious resources.
Tor Project accepted a $25k “contribution” (read: bribe) from DDG, so you’ll find that DDG problems are down-played. This is why Tor Browser defaults to using DDG and why Tor Project endorses DDG over searxes.eu.org – and against the interests of the privacy-seeking Tor community. The EFF also pimps DDG – a likely consequence of EFF’s close ties to Tor Project.
This is a strange number, because apparently only 200,000 Jews survived the camps:
The exact number is unknown, and there are different definitions of Holocaust survivor.
“When the war ended on 8th May 1945, it is estimated that there were around 200,000 Jewish survivors of the forced labour camps, concentration camps, death camps and death marches. Thousands of other survivors, who had been with the partisan groups, or in hiding, were also freed from Nazi control. The majority of those who survived were aged between 16 and 40 years old. The death toll continued to rise after liberation, with tens of thousands dying of starvation, disease, and the after-effects of malnutrition.”
The Holocaust wiped out around two-thirds of the European Jewish population, or one third of the world Jewish population.

Let’s compare that to WWII veterans:
Every day, memories of World War II—its sights and sounds, its terrors and triumphs—disappear. Yielding to the inalterable process of aging, the men and women who fought and won the great conflict are now in their late 80s and 90s. They are dying quickly—according to US Department of Veterans Affairs statistics, 389,292 of the 16 million Americans who served in World War II are alive in 2019.
