How many people had their “reach” throttled down to nothing, or had their groups cancelled, or were banished altogether from Facebook, for stating what initially was taboo, then was controversial, and now is a likely fact: COVID-19 is an engineered “gain of function” virus, not found in nature. It was only two months ago that Facebook […]
About Winston 84
“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed – if all records told the same tale – then the lie passed into history and became truth.” ~ Winston Smith, 1984, by George Orwell
Winston84 collects and catalogs online voices, with links to their platforms, that have been deplatformed, demonetized, shadowbanned, or otherwise suppressed. We may or may not share their opinions, but we firmly support their right to be heard.
Our philosophy for including any online content creator is to error on the side of inclusion. This means that some of the content that is cataloged here may run contrary to our own beliefs. But when what we consider to be extreme left-wing views are increasingly mainstreamed as normal by the establishment press and other opinion makers, we would rather risk including content on the right that we would otherwise reject, than risk instead to participate in the silencing and marginalizing of right-of-center views that must be heard.
It is our opinion that the establishment media, definitely including online media platforms controlled by big tech, has become blatantly biased and partisan. Winston84 is named in honor of the protagonist in George Orwell’s cautionary masterpiece, “1984.” Today there is not only a war on speech that may be considered offensive or morally indefensible. Today there is also a war on truth. Winston84 is offered as one of many challenges to this war on truth.
The few hundred records on this website each point to as many platforms as are known for each of these content creators. If someone is banned on YouTube, but still active on BitChute, then on their record here you will find a link to that BitChute URL, along with links to as many other platforms where they can still operate. We add new platforms as they become significant, and we routinely update records when a content creator has become active on a new platform.
We have divided our records into five categories: Christian Patriot, Climate Skeptic, Free Speech Ally, Irreverent Investigator, and Western Warrior. These categories, while distinct, become somewhat arbitrary in many cases when choosing which category to assign a particular record. For that reason, either scroll through all records when searching for someone, or use our search box. No content creator is assigned to more than one category.
If you believe there are content creators who belong on Winston84, or for any other suggestions, comments, or corrections, use the form on our Contact Us page to let us know. Winston84 is a project of the Center for American Greatness.

The popular woke notion that a white person has no right to express their opinion to a black person is a preposterous canard. Of course whites can speak out, because year after year, the Democratic party relies on black voters to change the outcome of every close election in America. When someone is altering your future, sending […]
It is difficult to overstate the helpless feeling that results when one finally realizes that the most powerful arbiters of communications in the history of the world are not platforms, but publishers, intent on ensuring that only news and information they approve of ever sees the light of day. The most egregious refutations of the […]
For years PragerU has done a remarkable job of producing conservative themed videos and distributing them online. They have done this despite being shadowbanned, deboosted, demonetized, and often having their videos either removed or accompanied with content warnings. Nearly ten years ago PragerU, recognizing the threat that YouTube could cancel their videos at any time, figured out […]
It is a shame that America’s establishment institutions have become obvious purveyors of an agenda-driven narrative, irrespective of the actual truth. For those of us who weren’t sure if this was so prior to the Trump presidency, it became obvious once he got elected in 2016. For four years, with straight faces, mainstream television news […]
If you want to find conservative Spanish language programming, you’ll look long and hard and may never find any. There is a critical mass of Spanish speaking media consumers in markets across America, but only a handful have access to right-wing points of view. A company with growth potential in this area is therefore a […]
Somewhere in the Rocky Mountains, an anonymous researcher has launched a website that tracks people who have been “canceled” for exercising their right to free speech. Appropriately named “CanceledPeople.org,” the database already has 195 entries, with many recognizable names including James Damore, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Jordan Peterson, Charles Murray, Megyn Kelly, Nicholas & Erik Christakis, […]
Those of us who are amused and glad that finally there are some politicians who engage in hyperbole and confrontational politics with the same abandon as Leftists have a new celebrity to follow, Georgia’s firebrand GOP Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene. It isn’t necessary to recapitulate the many ways Greene has horrified the mainstream. They are too […]
There was an in-depth report published in USA Today on 3/28 entitled “Crowdfunding hate: How white supremacists and other extremists raise money from legions of online followers.” Useful as much for what it left out as for what it covered, it is recommended reading. Two glaring and very common errors informed the report. First, it lumped everyone […]
If you read the nearly 10,000 word entry for Gab on Wikipedia, you might come away convinced it is a haven for right wing hatred. Abundant examples are cited. Founder Andre Torba claims Gab exists to counter, as he puts it, “the entirely left-leaning Big Social monopoly.” It would be foolish to suggest that right wing hate doesn’t […]
Lawmakers in two states are now considering legislation that push back against censorship by online online communications monopolies, in particular, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. In Texas, Senate Bill 12 would prohibit online censorship based on the views expressed or repeated by a social media user based in the state. According to the sponsoring Senator, Bryan Hughes, “affected users could […]
For the last four years, an anonymous commentator with a YouTube channel called “Way of the World” offered his perspective on what was happening to Western Culture because of globalism. Last week YouTube obliterated his channel. He had already been thrown off Facebook and Patreon. Featured in an analysis of the so-called intellectual dark web written in September 2019, by […]
Rogan O’Handley, also known as DC Draino, was thrown off Twitter on February 27. As the generic message on his defunct Twitter URL now helpfully explains, “Twitter suspends accounts which violate the Twitter Rules.” But what rules? Twitter rarely explains why they deplatform individual accounts, and since they can deplatform a sitting U.S. President, they’re willing to deplatform anyone. […]
It would be interesting to ask anyone who still thinks YouTube has the right to take down a speech by an ex-president of the United States, if they even listened to it. Because if questioning the legitimacy of the 2020 election is now openly censored by every major communications platform in America, and it is, then why […]
One of the most reliable and comprehensive sources of alternative news is The Epoch Times. And one of the beats covered assiduously by The Epoch Times is the ongoing epidemic of online censorship. This week The Epoch Times exposed two serious new acts of censorship. The first, in an act that rivals the arrogance of Twitter’s […]
