#whonix is some great piece of software, but their politics just sucks.
Promoting and educating facists about preserving privacy and anonymity, is not exactly something you should do.
(#gab is a social network known for hosting facists and for radicalizing people towards facism)
@micahflee since you're on the frontpage of the whonix website, could you please request them to stop supporting gab?
@syster ugh yeah, will do
@syster what's the URL that promotes gab?
Here’s the URL: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Donate ("follow" section).
@micahflee did you get any reply yet?
@syster sorry it took me forever to ask, but I recently did, and wrote a blog post about it https://micahflee.com/2020/06/is-the-whonix-project-run-by-fascists/
I should have done some more research myself. I'm sure there're enough information out in the public to know that Patrick Schleizer is a supporter of the far-right.
Patrick Schleizer has a youtube account. The proof that it's his can be found here https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Imprint
His channel openly supports conspiracy theorists and fascists. Ich kann sprechen ein bisschen deutsch and the usage of deepL helped me to form this conclusion.
Maybe some native german speaking antifacist can help out.
@syster I don't speak German so it's hard for me to look into, but I did hear something similar. I'd be interested in knowing which conspiracy theorists and fascists he has supported and what he said about them
There was also this garbage (saw on twitter originally but its been deleted there)
