An Open Letter From to The Great People of Scranton, PA

To my friends, family, and neighbors in Scranton, PA and the NEPA area,

My name is Andrew Torba and I’m the Founder and CEO of I was born and raised in NEPA. I attended Old Forge elementary in grade school and later moved to Moosic to attend Riverside High School. As many of you will know, Riverside and Old Forge have the biggest rivalry in high school football spanning back decades so with that said: GO VIKES!

I know many of you voted for Joe Biden, including members of my own family, and that’s okay. In my humble opinion Joe Biden is someone who left our area at a very young age and only ever seems to come back when it’s time to fundraise.

I voted for Donald J. Trump, twice. I’m not going to apologize for that just as I wouldn’t expect you to do so for voting Biden. We are all a lot more a like than those in power would have use believe. We share the same struggles and have the same goals of providing for and protecting our families.

We also share common enemies: the oligarchic elites in Central Banking, Wall St, Big Tech, Big Pharma, Big Education, the Legacy Media, and more. These people in power seek to pit us against one another as they get richer and the rest of us struggle to feed our families. They use the Legacy Media, Hollywood, and Big Tech to accomplish this.

My vision is for us to unite together to take our country back from these wicked people in power. To do so we will need to escape from their digital mind prisons that track, censor, and monetize our data. We will need to step outside the illusory two party system and realize that the Uniparty is not serving the best interests of The People.

Those of you who know me know that I come from humble roots. I’m not some silver spoon coastal elite entrepreneur. I’m a scrappy Scranton guy just like many of you. I have a young and growing family. I worked very hard over the period of almost five years to build up Gab and make it the massive success it is today.

For those of you who don’t know much about me, I encourage you to read this blog post. I was born and raised here, I graduated from the University of Scranton, and I’m working to put Scranton on the map as the home of free speech for people all around the world.

The Legacy Media, Big Tech elites, and other puppets of the oligarchs have smeared my family and I, as well as our business, for many years now. They know that they cannot control the narrative or the flow of information on Gab and that Gab competes with their business in a big way.

They got us banned from both App Stores, dozens of payment processors, email services, hosting services, and much more. They even blacklisted my family from VISA. All for defending your right to speak freely on the internet.

I want to clear up some misconceptions about Gab that you may have read in the totally dishonest and failing Scranton Times-Tribune.

Gab is the home of free speech online.

Gab seeks to export the uniquely American value of free speech to the entire world. Regardless of whether Gab’s administrators, outside activist pressure groups, “cancel culture” Internet mobs, the mainstream media, foreign governments, or any other persons agree with any Gabber’s viewpoints: political speech that is protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution will be allowed on the platform. Illegal activity, threats of violence, doxxing, pornography, child exploitation, and spam are not allowed on Gab.

Free speech does not mean threats of violence or illegal activity. Gab has zero tolerance for illegal activity of any kind on our platform. We have a great relationship with International, Federal, State, and Local law enforcement to ensure public safety.

You might see things you disagree with on Gab. You might see things that offend you. We have the tools for you to block, mute, and not see those things if you so choose. On Gab you create your own experience. We do not babysit for you. Our job is to ensure the service works and that no illegal activity is tolerated on the platform. That’s it.

In the past 30 days the Gab community has grown by millions of people from around the world. We’ve seen over 24 million visitors and 177 million page views over the past few weeks alone. Our business is growing and quickly.

We believe that there should be a place on the internet for people to speak freely without permission from Mark Zuckerberg or any of the other Big Tech oligarchs who needlessly censor, track, and monetize us all. Gab is that place.

Please look past our perceived political differences. Please understand why the Legacy Media, including the totally dishonest Scranton Times-Tribune, is trying to get you to hate us.

I’m asking for your help and support. I want to create a lot of jobs and drive a lot of tourism to our area. I can’t do that without the blessing of The People of Scranton and NEPA. Let’s start a new “office” in our area. One that upholds the fundamental human right to speak freely.

Please keep my family and our growing team of people at Gab in your prayers.

Thank you and God Bless You,

Andrew Torba

Gab Calls on Facebook and Twitter to be Banned from App Stores following Capitol Riot

Just kidding. ?

Federal law enforcement today advised the AP that there was significant activity on Twitter directed towards the organization of the Capitol Hill riots. Twitter was also the place where a man was using coded language to sell child porn according to news reports this week.

The Washington Post reported a mountain of evidence was discovered of the organization the happened on Facebook for the January 6th protests. Facebook’s Chief Operation Officer, Sharyl Sandberg, deflected the blame to you guessed it: Gab.

The New York Times at first wrongfully and baselessly reported that Gab and Parler were to blame, but has since amended that position after new evidence surfaced about Facebook’s role in what happened on January 6th.

The legacy press and activist groups such as the Anti-Defamation League, each also blamed two challenger sites – Gab and Parler – rather than the big sites like Twitter and Facebook where rioters actually planned their activities.

The reality of app store bans is and always has been that Big Tech moderation policies are selectively applied. Big Tech responds not to reality but to the demands of far-left activists who clog the proverbial phone lines of Apple and Google every time a handful of offensive or illegal posts appears on our sites, while ignoring when hundreds of thousands of illegal or offensive posts appears on theirs.

We are documenting millions of illegal posts in our Liberal Hate Machine project which shows just how much hatred and bile is spewed on Twitter, one of our most major competitors. We have been collecting and analyzing over 100 million tweets in the replies section of President Trump’s Twitter account for about a year. We applied sentiment analysis to detect violent and hateful replies. Wait until you see what we found.

It’s interesting that Twitter remains online and has access to App Stores and Gab does not. The reason is clear: Big Tech has no principles other than its desire to serve the interests of the radical left and the Democratic Party. They can’t say it out loud so they say it with their actions.

With the Democrats in control of the government, regulation of Big Tech is not the answer. Begging Apple and Google for access is not the answer.

The only way we can beat Big Tech is to build an internet of our own – and financial system of our own – where Big Tech has no power. Conservatives and freedom-loving people everywhere must vote with their feet and join the millions of people who are getting on Gab.

Dear Senator Warner,

Thank you for your letter dated 8th of January, 2021. 


Gab’s Statement on Apple and Google’s Tyranny

If your business is built on the backs of Silicon Valley tyrants (Apple, Google, et al) they can and will attempt to destroy you if and when you become a threat to their interests.


A Message From Gab’s CEO

Over the past several weeks I have been openly warning the Gab community to be on the lookout for fedposters and threats or encouragement of violence on Gab. This PSYOP campaign started back in early December with newly created accounts popping up out of nowhere and making threats of violence. We have zero tolerance for this behavior and it is absolutely not free speech.


Get President Trump On

I’m going to be upfront with you: Gab is growing fast. Our growth is already up 120%+ in 24 hours alone. We need to massively expand our server capacity and very quickly. We need your help to do it.

Additionally, I am in the process of connecting with President Trump’s team as we speak. The President’s Gab account is already reserved with hundreds of thousands of followers.

Uncategorized’s Statement on Today’s Events in Washington, D.C.

Today, the New York Times wrote an article attempting to place the blame for today’s events in D.C. on social media sites like Gab:

“On social media sites requested by the far-right, such as Gab…. directions on which streets to take to avoid the police and which tools to bring to help pry open doors were exchanged in comments.”


The Self-Censorship of YouTube Creators Is Very Sad, Get on Gab TV

Gab TV, our new free speech YouTube alternative, is exploding in growth. Gab TV is hosting videos that you won’t find anywhere else: election fraud videos, banned political commentary, Big Tech-censored documentaries, interviews with doctors who dissent the legacy media narratives on corona, and much more.


What Gab Accomplished In 2020

At the beginning of 2020 our team had two themes set for the year: refinement and resiliency. Our first goal was to refine our existing product offering to make it more user friendly, familiar, and fast. Our second goal was to strip away dependency on third-party providers to become even more resilient for the ongoing worldwide information war.
