Anonymous Bites Back Radio Show Strikes Against Censorship: Now Broadcasted On 50+ Platforms

    This article was originally published by Aaron Kesel at Activist Post.

    Anonymous Bites Back, an all-volunteer activist apolitical radio show has been broadcasting for several years with constant problems fighting back against censorship for the topics discussed. Now, ABB seems to have found an unorthodox solution to their problem.

    Originally, episodes received good viewer counts, starting out using Facebook and YouTube as a home to stream the weekly shows.

    On Facebook alone, the Anonymous Bites Back page quickly grew to 25,000+ viewers per episode. This was mainly due to the huge amount of promotion on different pages and groups by the team and by the viewers themselves. Everyone was working hard on building up the show.

    Then shit started to hit the fan. Suddenly ABB episodes were “shadow banned” and outright censored. When an episode went live, it started out with a certain amount of viewers. But then the team started to share, and with each share to a page, the view count actually started to drop. At some point, there were more people replying below the episode than the amount Facebook claimed were watching the live stream. After a while, Anonymous Bites Back realized why the social media site was doing this and how.

    The show had become too big and was causing ripple waves on the InQTel-funded platform.

    It’s no surprise that Facebook did this to ABB, as the group of activists are who originally came up with the #DeleteFacebook movement.

    Facebook works with a “live stream map.” This map shows dots representing all the different live streams in the world. When a stream gets more viewers, the dot becomes larger, making you more visible, giving you more and more exposure. So a popular stream will get a big boost by Facebook unless you are “deboosted.”

    It’s now been revealed that Facebook will “deboost” posts including political targeting users. It’s something that all of us knew, and is more commonly referred to in the industry as “shadow banning.” However, the claim holds more water coming from a former employee than just mere speculation, especially with documents that Project Veritas reported.

    Cyber Guerrilla (CGAN) describes what happened to ABB:

    They began artificially reducing the live view count, they were actively attempting to reduce the reach of the show. So Anonymous Bites Back realized the establishment social media wanted a war. And the team started to invent solutions. They started out by changing the location of the live stream to a popular location. If something big was happening at that moment, the show would “move” to that location.

    This offered a temporary solution, and new viewers did arrive. Also a team was created to increase the sharing, consisting of active supporters and fans, and they were organizing “watch parties” to increase the amount of viewers. It worked, and Anonymous Bites Back was able to restore the numbers. But then Facebook hit them again. This time by limiting accounts of people who would share from the page. The moment you would share from the page more than 3 times, your account would be unable to share anything for 7 days. Sometimes it would lock you out of your account entirely.

    Keep in mind that all of this happened on Facebook while the show never received a single infraction. But the team didn’t give up, instead, they started to branch out using different services. The team’s focus was then put on to YouTube.

    Viewers quickly moved over and after just a mere two episodes even the chat below the live shows became very active.

    However, that didn’t last long at all before once again the activists faced blowback. All of a sudden, YouTube stopped the streaming capabilities a month or two ago for a false copyright claim of a documentary the team had permission to stream, coincidentally right before the U.S. debates. YouTube also censored other accounts who were actually talking about the debates, as Elizabeth Lea Vos reported on Steemit. Albeit the fact that the radio show is apolitical and didn’t plan on covering the Democratic debates, the timing of the suspended live stream capability can’t be ignored.

    According to Hack News:

    After the show was “shadow banned” on both Facebook and Youtube, the Anonymous activists had to find solutions. Quickly a team member developed a method to stream to over 30 different social media websites at once. This allowed them to be decentralized, no longer being dependent on any individual website. They would always be online “somewhere” and would just post the links to their incredibly large network.

    When last month they lost their live stream capabilities on the famous Anonymous Worldwide Youtube channel for 90 days, after a so called copyright infraction that later turned out to be false, they were able to switch to Periscope within seconds. This is the live stream website created by the Twitter company. They were even able to increase the viewer count of Anonymous Bites Back shows ten fold compared to Youtube, easily reaching 5-10.000 unique viewers per show.

    After this happened, YouTube in a clear moment of irony started to care and sent private messages on Twitter to one of the show hosts asking if they can offer a solution to the stream being limited.

    Since the message from YouTube, Anonymous Bites Back, (ABB) was shockingly allowed to stream again.

    Despite this, there is a huge list of different sites now streaming the show displayed on the Anonymous Bites Back Gravatar page. And it is increasing by the day, as ABB organizes the different profiles to make them look a little more “professional.”

    The ABB team is from all over the world and they don’t care what political flavor of ice cream you choose to eat, everyone is welcome to come on air. That may be why the establishment doesn’t like the show. So, as a result, they are always trying to disturb and disrupt in many different ways. But the ABB team is ready and loved in the Anonymous collective for being consistent with standing up for human rights and highlighting numerous activism causes without taking donations or monetizing the show.

    During the last month or so ABB has been working on a direct audio stream on the Anonymous Bites Back website that cannot be removed by social media, as a backup system to current streams. You can listen to ABB below via Periscope each week on Thursday at 9 P.M. CST and again on Saturday and Sunday for special episodes at 2 p.m. CST. Of course, episodes are always uploaded after the show in podcasts. For more information follow the ABB Twitter account – @abbliveshow.

    When will the establishment learn that censoring individuals or a group of people will only result in the Streisand effect? Anonymous Bites Back proves that if you knock someone down they will just get back up stronger than ever. Silencing someone’s voice only makes the public that much more interested in what is being said.

    Activist Post has suffered similar censorship over the years, with the AP YouTube account banned in 2017 — see “YouTube Terminated Our Unblemished Channel Without Warning.”

    Users of social media are sick and tired of the censorship and shadowbans of their public discussions.

    Already, Facebook users have begun migrating away using the hashtag #DeleteFacebook to alternative media websites like – SoMee.SocialGab.aiMinds.comSteemit.comMeWe, and others where it’s even possible for you the reader and a content producer to get paid for your comments and contributions to the platforms thanks to cryptocurrency.

      1. Watch it, pick it, burn it. Censoring offline media is extra ordinarily difficult, hence the move to turn everything paperless and interconnected in real time. My how swiftly this progressed from big box cable erasing peoples episodes of conspiracy theory on their dvr boxes in the middle of the night. There are still these cool things called dvr’s & dvd’s, paper, money orders and checks. The printing press changed the world once, and is standing by to do so again. How much abuse does a group of people need to suffer before they simply issue a monthly magazine, with dvr included as a standard?

        What’s great about paper, is nobody knows what you liked, what part you read, or what advertisements were effective, whom you shared it with. Targeted advertising is what built and simultaneously is killing big tech. Some of us are still arguing for ad free spaces. It would be a felony to steal peoples paper mail, but interestingly enough, it’s sanctioned activity to manipulate peoples digital and virtual mail, anyone can do it. Please, the post office is one of the most precious institutions in America, it’s important to use the mail more.

        I’ll pass on anonymous but I would subscribe to a monthly shtf mag or zine. We love our mags and do read the monthly AFA journal, Cornucopia food group newsletter, Audubon society, cooking, Freedom First, mass resistance, Arbor day, Judicial Watch just started mailing a monthly which is really great, etc, etc.

        If you want more censorship, please support paperless and subscribe to nothing printed. Run everything you read through your mobile spyware device. If you don’t want to line up like a domino, give a customary single dollar to the aclu and greenpeace, both red and blue government areas, just whomever asks for a donation, so you get an interesting array of full spectrum messages. There are thousands of them on both sides. We get free calenders, stamps, nickles, swag, all because we gave a single dollar years ago to dozens of solicitors. Targeted messaging has all these solicitors being highly extreme. Targeted advertising is the reason moderate messages are increasingly difficult to come by. Let them know you’re not buying it and want a full spectrum fairly balanced message. Let them know you’re not an extremist, by simply returning to the paper printing press. The world is what we make it. Vote with your wallet.

        I still subscribe to the Denver post, even though it goes directly into the recycle bin. It’s important to keep the papers alive because one day the climate could turn around, but not if they’re all shut down and gone. Big tech gets a raise every time someone unsubscribes from paper publications. I get an impeach potus extreme alert letter right alongside a polar opposite extreme liberal danger alert, whatever. You don’t know how much you’re being played with targeted advertising if you’re logging in and actively participating in that. Opt out by keeping paper based reading in your normal lineup. Thank you for reading.

        • y said, ‘Censoring offline media is extra ordinarily difficult.’

          2 Thess 3

          The early church, Anonymous Bites Back, you, and I *are indeed censored, when we get starved-out.

          Free speech was only half the issue, here.

          I don’t feel that niche, political discussions are self-sufficient communities, which will physically support the narrator or writer or reader.

          • Will a community financially support you and your publication, as well as having access to the written word.

            There needs to be a value system or social bargain, that goes along with your paper, or whatever other venue.

            • Selfish capitalism, that’s nothing new, and not something to be proud of. I suppose a resistance zine is out of the question then? It’s a good thing they did not think that way in early America, with all the pamphlets and diy at home printing pressed articles of the day.

              But, must, be, profitable, to justify economic investment in liberty. Reconsider that argument. Liberty, too big to fail. If you’re publishing something worthwhile, yes people will pay. I pay to get those mailers. Now and then they’re awesome. You’re paying with digital time meters and clicks right now. The difference being the tech guys take a huge bite out of everything online. Something that does not necessarily happen with an effort to print, publish, use the mail, etc. Community, there are all types out there with constantly shifting demographics and habits. Are you going public offering with this hypothetical magazine already? Quite the leap.

        • You are correct to be concerned and distrustful of digital tech and manipulation by big tech in general. There are pros and cons to almost everything. And the danger that big tech poses is more than what people may think. In the same way real-time targeting of ads can be done, whose to say that a person’s (someone like a president) actual device or data feed is not getting manipulated in real-time, or cant be done? A piece of info, a news item, a story that he/she reads on his device, all could be altered or manipulated in the subtlest ways (audio and video included), but done so where it is only with the targeted device. AI generated content is another inevitable threat. Hard copies as you said is the way to go. Paper, micro or nano sketching are some of the many ways to address the problem

          • It’s all so dang advanced lately. I developed a solid trust in paper when several of those big deal banks and tech retail companies had manipulated my payment records 20 years ago.

            Wait for the dang prompts or press zero until I get a live one. I will cancel service if any company tries to force me to talk to robots without alternate options. Please don’t hang up google services update social security at risk credit card reduction business listing robodialers are right out!

            The actual content you mentioned, that’s over my head dude. I tell you one thing though, I don’t talk to robots, not on purpose.

      2. Books, carbon paper, typewriters and associated items of ribbons and paper, Kodak film and camera will one day be the priceless core of disseminating the truth as the electronic media is completely absorbed in the matrix. Faint whispers in ones ear with a preceding swivel head to see who is nearby will be the order of the day, while simultaneously there will be glorious public celebration of our freedom. Movies become the historical reality while the truth is erased from existence.

        • I have a huge dvd collection, a benefit of 1-5 dollar dvds at this goodwill. Amazing selection and probably I have a few thousand.

          I’ve been sorting them in different ways. One of the most disconcerting sort types I ever tried was to identify hollywood movies where nobody was intending to hurt or actually killing someone else. The standard was not in jest, not on purpose, no murder, no suicide, nothing violent from one human to another, no jokes of violence, no violent intention or posturing.

          I’ve been churning through movies with this in mind and find myself turning many of them off mid stream. Could they have done that and expressed that amazing imaginative concept without all the murder and violence?

          Rewatching Everest, but then I was like, but it’s still a tragedy, they all die! Can’t catch a break on this one, will report back with an update if I find any. Nature documentaries I guess, those don’t count. Can outer space count as a violent on screen element? Get those lifetime usage rights of physically pressed dvd’s while the getting is good, going to be a dry spell for some time to come. America is not even a 20% portion of the primary movie owners markets these days. I’ve been surfing b movies at the redbox but it’s tough going.

      3. The printing press and gold coin in the hands of the mass commoners allowed thought and wealth to be out of totalitarian influence and control.

      4. All this digital is getting old fast. I’m fed-up.

        I think this site is shadow banned.

        I like real stores, especially bookstores. We need more bookstores and more independent publishers.

        I would open such a bookstore and only accept cash. No cards, checks, or on-line purchases allowed.

        I’ld publish the manuscripts of people who walk-in, if I like their stuff; and sell it for them and split the profits.

        I would not get rich, but I’ld get a great deal of satisfaction out of being able to provide a much needed service.

        We’re living in a virtual distortion. Reality can not be found on the internet.

        I want to buy a cow. I want to drink raw milk, make raw butter and cheese. I need to get my hands dirty. I’m sick to death with modern life. I’m tempted to go live out in the middle of a forest or on some spot away from “civilization” altogether.

        These prying, spying people are sick in the head. They can never hold onto power. They’re insane. It’s just a matter of time before they are put down by normal thinking rational people with better ideas. We’ll look back at this juncture with a sense of humor, as we do all times of absurdity.

          Apps this and Apps that is soooo irritating.
          I get along fine without it too.

          I do rely on internet for news, etc…I don’t have news channels with ROKU. I choose not to watch those.

          Something is really wrong here and it appears nobody is at the helm, unless it’s deep state controllers.
          Sure, articles appear to be written by Mac, yet the technical issues remain. Reload page, reload durango kidd said, he’s probably in a FEMA camp.
          Use adblock plus if you use a pc—try to drive advertiser revenue down, make SOMETHING happen here.

            • “And so it was, the exposers of truth were persecuted”. Made punished for crimes against the rulers of great armies. The truth haters cheered in their ignorance. For they believed all should be as the evil ones commandeth. To die for the defendence of thy lies.

      5. Wait til they go to a cashless society. Its already being used in China and some countries in Europe. Its all about control and knowing everything about you and how and where you spend your money.

        • K2, there will always be a black market using metals and whatnot. Just because something is illegal or banned doesn’t stop a lot of people from having or using it. Real money, GET SUM!

          • Ooops I meant Jim in VA..

          • In s-hole countries, they will still scrounge for every bit, as we would for recyclables. It buys a sandwich, when they set the price at a few pennies.

            When I ask you, right now, how much it’s worth, you’re going to quote a price, set by a state interest, and you will not pay one iota more.

            All the state has to do, in order to confiscate metals or make them ineffectual, for you, is to peg the price artificially low, at retail level.

            • The ability to manipulate currency only goes so far. This is what quantitative easing is all about. Creating more dollars to stretch everything further on, working hard to maintain confidence in such currency, offering negative rates to first receivers of money. This of course devalues currency, which is exactly how the fed structured the value of money in todays economy. That’s the essence of ‘fiat currency’. So any manipulation of silver will eventually bounce back, so will gold.

      8. They have just told you how to do it:
        “They started out by changing the location of the live stream to a popular location. If something big was happening at that moment, the show would ‘move’ to that location.”

        But, data, placeholders, and the virtual world, needs to parlayed into tangible living needs, besides the right to free speech.
