NY Times: We’re Going to Make Sure Free Speech Platform ‘Telegram’ Is BANNED Forever

Fact checked
New York Times vows to ban Telegram from the internet

The New York Times has vowed to do everything in its power to ban free-speech platform Telegram from the internet.

In response to the recent spate of attacks against Asians, the far-left newspaper claimed that memes shared on Telegram and 4chan were to blame.

How Anti-Asian Activity Online Set the Stage for Real-World Violence

On platforms such as Telegram and 4chan, racist memes and posts about Asian-Americans have created fear and dehumanization.

By Davey Alba

In January, a new group popped up on the messaging app Telegram, named after an Asian slur.

Hundreds of people quickly joined. Many members soon began posting caricatures of Asians with exaggerated facial features, memes of Asian people eating dog meat and images of American soldiers inflicting violence during the Vietnam War.

This week, after a gunman killed eight people — including six women of Asian descent — at massage parlors in and near Atlanta, the Telegram channel linked to a poll that asked, “Appalled by the recent attacks on Asians?” The top answer, with 84 percent of the vote, was that the violence was “justified retaliation for Covid.”

The Telegram group was a sign of how anti-Asian sentiment has flared up in corners of the internet, amplifying racist and xenophobic tropes just as attacks against Asian-Americans have surged. On messaging apps like Telegram and on internet forums like 4chan, anti-Asian groups and discussion threads have been increasingly active since November, especially on far-right message boards such as The Donald, researchers said.

The activity follows a rise in anti-Asian misinformation last spring after the coronavirus, which first emerged in China, began spreading around the world. On Facebook and Twitter, people blamed the pandemic on China, with users posting hashtags such as #gobacktochina and #makethecommiechinesepay. Those hashtags spiked when former President Donald J. Trump last year called Covid-19 the “Chinese virus” and “Kung Flu.”

Informationliberation.com reports: A search of Twitter for the hashtag #makethecommiechinesepay shows not one single result before this article came out.

A large portion of the results for #GoBackToChina link to a 2019 movie named “Go Back to China” about a “spoiled rich girl” blowing through her trust fund and having to go back to China to work for her family’s toy business.

Note, the Telegram channel Alba cites, according to her own claims, had just “hundreds” of followers.

The desperation here is remarkable. They’re looking for any excuse they can find to try and get Telegram and 4chan shut down.

While some of the online activity tailed off ahead of the November election, its re-emergence has helped lay the groundwork for real-world actions, researchers said. The fatal shootings in Atlanta this week, which have led to an outcry over treatment of Asian-Americans even as the suspect said he was trying to cure a “sexual addiction,” were preceded by a swell of racially motivated attacks against Asian-Americans in places like New York and the San Francisco Bay Area, according to the advocacy group Stop AAPI Hate.

They refuse to say who carried out those attacks.

“Surges in anti-Asian rhetoric online means increased risk of real-world events targeting that group of people,” said Alex Goldenberg, an analyst at the Network Contagion Research Institute at Rutgers University, which tracks misinformation and extremism online.

The Network Contagion Research Institute, headed by Joel Finkelstein, says on its website it’s affiliated with the Anti-Defamation League, George Soros’ Open Society Foundations and the Charles Koch Foundation — all of whom are lobbying for internet censorship.

The ADL is the leading pro-censorship lobby in America.

Despite painting all Asians as victims of evil White oppressors, the Times made sure to put Asians in their place — lest they convince themselves they’re at the top of the victim hierarchy:

Anti-Asian speech online has typically not been as overt as anti-Semitic or anti-Black groups, memes and posts, researchers said. On Facebook and Twitter, posts expressing anti-Asian sentiments have often been woven into conspiracy theory groups such as QAnon and in white nationalist and pro-Trump enclaves. Mr. Goldenberg said forms of hatred against Black people and Jews have deep roots in extremism in the United States and that the anti-Asian memes and tropes have been more “opportunistically weaponized.”

But that does not make the anti-Asian hate speech online less insidious.

Sorry Asians, according to Mr. Goldenberg you’re pretty much at the bottom of the victim hierarchy!

After the shootings in Atlanta, a doctored screenshot of what looked like a Facebook post from the suspect circulated on Facebook and Twitter this week. The post featured a miasma of conspiracies about China engaging in a Covid-19 cover-up and wild theories about how it was planning to “secure global domination for the 21st century.”

Facebook and Twitter eventually ruled that the screenshot was fake and blocked it. But by then, the post had been shared and liked hundreds of times on Twitter and more than 4,000 times on Facebook.

This is the screenshot:


The Times failed to mention it was shared all over the place by leftists who wanted to try and link the shooting to their political enemies.


  1. Hatred against Jews and Blacks is from the Catholic Nazis Theres never bern a Jewish or Neuro Pope England has never had a Negro marry into the royal family ,in fact I doubt any of the 10 HORNS of Revelations ,the 10 kingdoms of europe have But perversely they claim to be descended from King David ,who was dethroned anyway Cast out of his Kingdom So made un royal.By God . “They in there hate truth and beuty —hate Jesus and Christian’s ” Benedict ,,so hate God ..

    • It’s like Soros Someone who although his mums Jewish hates Israel and jews They’re like that Roman jews .They buries the holocaust as if it didnt happen totally supporting the catholic nazi party Like soros who helped send them to the gas chambers a d grew rich doing it

      • And its like my grandmother once told me when I was about 7 or 8 that all of the richest mist powerful Jewish families all left Europe and germany and went to America in the 1920s or early 30s .Ine xan ibky sunrise that maybe they knew in advance ,Like J P Morgan ,the owner of the Titanic cancelling his ticket for the virgin sailing at the very last minute possible ,citing ” business reasons ” Meanwhile the 3 wealthy jews who boarded mainly jyst to try to talk him out of creating the Federal Reserve all drowned Even though Astors pregnant wife was put into a lifeboat almost empty except for her and a few others Okenty of room for Jacib Astor ,but no they said women and children only He drowned .Most of the life boats were almost empty

        • In 1929 I think from memory all of the western allies signed a deal agreeing they would all refuse to a cept Jewish REFUGEES out of europe .Course the rich were nt refugees per se at the time They just bought american citizenship in more or less secret deals

Anyway because those 3 new millionaires were all drowned Moegan made rhe Fwd a d toppled the Rithschilds as the worlds richest most powerful banker ever o earth .A d rhe wealth from the Fws has set the bank of England up as the real worlds central bank that a tially owns most banks globally trading under body aka identities .All from that sinking The whole world economy as we know it

          • And not like the Rothschild whose wealth is always measured by the whole extended family ,but as one single solitary individual.

  2. How are the NY Times and other MSM propaganda outlets to spread their propaganda if people can freely spread facts contrary to their fake, contrived narratives? It’s just not fair! Poor Grey Lady!

  3. Ladies and gentlemen the USA is actively being invaded by Chinese. Buying up thousands of acres of land to build grow farms, using cash money. Let me be clear. THEYRE ALL FOREIGNERS AND ANTI AMERICAN. Therefore they are not asian americans and it should be illegal for them to buy anything here let alone land. This anti asian hate campaign serves one purpose: as a conditioning tool for americans so when china does decide to do something people will sit right back and allow it without a fight. This shit has gone too far and its to the boiling point.
