Founded in 2013, for several years Rumble.com quietly developed its online video-sharing platform as a viable but virtually unknown alternative to YouTube. All of that changed in September 2020 when conservative radio host Dan Bongino became part-owner of Rumble, and offered the deplatformed, demonetized, deboosted, depersoned multitudes a new home.
The user experience on Rumble compares favorably to BitChute, a more recently established YouTube alternative, probably because the people operating Rumble have had nearly seven years to get the bugs out. Rapid, ok, meteoric growth has not slowed Rumble down, and its Alexa ranking in the U.S. is already an impressive 757. On their website Rumble claims 50 million unique visits per month, with no end in sight.
Needless to say, and consistent with our mission, we’re scanning Rumble to find out who in our Winston84 directory have already made the migration. Here is a list of some who are now to be found on Rumble:
Dan Bongino, of course, along with Dinesh D’Souza, The Hodge Twins, Diamond & Silk, Wayne Dupree, and Charlie Kirk. Also now on Rumble we’ve already found The Epoch Times and One America News, along with some indispensable purveyors of alternative perspectives who are not just suppressed, but banned from YouTube, Red Pill 78 and X22 Report.
Rather smug reporting on Rumble’s sudden rise can be found in the predictable places – Newsweek, the Washington Post, the New York Times. Let them bray. Behind the bravado is fear. Their audiences are shrinking, and even their collusion with the tech monopolies will not stop the erosion of their audiences.
The events of 2020, for any who hadn’t already realized it, have proven that the establishment sources of “news” are controlled and cannot be trusted. Absolutely nothing they write or broadcast can be believed until their proclamations are either verified or contradicted by evidence available on alternative media.
Thank you, Rumble.
