FROM PJMEDIA MANAGING EDITOR PAULA BOLYARD: Join PJ Media VIP and Help Us Defend Freedom.

Loyal readers of PJ Media are well aware of the challenges we conservatives face in an era when Big Tech makes the rules and we’re forced to follow them—websites like ours are increasingly finding ourselves at the mercy of Big Tech executives who don’t share our values and are often hostile to them. Forces beyond our control are constantly trying to force us into their boxes so they can silence our conservative message. Make no mistake: the left will stop at nothing in their efforts to silence us. They’re demanding we be de-platformed and demonetized and they are succeeding beyond their wildest dreams. Hardly a day goes by that we don’t see one of our conservative friends or colleagues being booted off a social media platform or having his or her PayPal account frozen. To make matters worse, the current ad-based revenue model, which most websites currently rely on to fund their operations, is increasingly unsustainable and may disappear completely in the next few years as advertisers shy away from running ads on political websites. Ad vendors are increasingly trying to tell us what we can and cannot publish.

Conservative media is at a crossroads — we can fight to conserve what we have, or quit and let the left control what we read and view online. We cannot let that happen. We will not.

Much more at the link.

When we tried our soft launch of the VIP section yesterday, interest was great enough that it blew up the new signup system — sorry about that!

Nothing will change here at Instapundit, and I’ll keep doing what I’ve been doing on the ad-supported parts of PJMedia. On top of all that though, in the VIP section I’ll be able once more to attack the kind of stuff from the old VodkaPundit.com days. That’s me and the rest of the PJ crew.
