I’ve Been Banned By Twitter. You’re Next

I was banned by Twitter this week. Trust me, if you’re a conservative or a patriot, read this story carefully. Because you’re next.

I’ve argued for quite some time that this was coming. I warned that if Joe Biden were elected, Democrats would overplay their hand. They would open the borders and let the whole world in. They’d legalize millions of people who are in this country illegally. They’d confiscate guns. They’d try to destroy the energy industry in the name of climate change. They’d tax and regulate small businesses to death. They’d make election fraud easy, legal and permanent. They’d pass a slew of executive orders that benefit China. And worst of all, they’d intimidate, censor and ban.

Why is Twitter censoring Trump, but not the CCP?

January 8, 2021

Editor’s Note: The link to this article published by the UK-based anti-censorship advocacy and research organization Spiked.com was broadcast to President Trump’s Parler followers in the midst of the 45th US President having been deplatformed by both Twitter and Facebook, and a few short days before the plug was pulled on the entire Parler site. We can’t think of a more flagrant example of being “memory holed” than this.

This week, Donald Trump was blocked indefinitely from Facebook. He was also handed a 12-hour Twitter suspension and three of his tweets were deleted. These moves came after Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, with the president’s critics accusing him of inciting and then failing to condemn the violence in which five people died.

Some have pointed to these firms’ inconsistency. Twitter, for example, while censoring Trump, has taken no action against a tweet from the Chinese embassy in the US, which has framed the ethnic cleansing of Uyghurs as a form of re-educative liberation. ‘Study shows that in the process of eradicating extremism, the minds of Uyghur women in Xinjiang were emancipated, and gender equality and reproductive health were promoted, making them no longer baby-making machines’, a tweet by the embassy proudly announced. Apparently, celebrating the persecution of Xinjiang’s Muslims did not break Twitter rules.

In what seemed as an impossible feat, Gab CEO Andrew Torba restored in their platform all the contents deleted from President Donald Trump’s Twitter account.

The Gab founder saved a backup file of all the contents from the President’s Twitter account before it got fully deleted from the social media’s platform. He then put up the re-created version of the President’s previous Twitter posts on Gab’s platform. All comments, nasty or not, were also part of the restoration.

“What’s even more impressive is he did this while traffic was up 700% and under attack from leftists. Gab is currently having servers upgraded to handle the large influx in traffic but we’re told it should stabilize soon,” reports 100% Fed Up, as per the Gateway Pundit.

“The traffic just keeps growing. Hang tight, even more servers on the way today,” Gab CEO Andrew Torba announced on their site.

Twitter sued by sex trafficking victim alleging it knowingly hosted content depicting abuse

Rebel News

A boy who was solicited and recruited for sex trafficking as a minor, and endured continued victimization after Twitter refused to remove material depicting his sexual abuse, has sued the social media company. 

According to the lawsuit, the claimant, who is still a minor and is referred to as John Doe, “seeks to shine a light on how Twitter has enabled and profited from CSAM (child sexual abuse material) on its platform, choosing profits over people, money over the safety of children, and wealth at the expense of human freedom and human dignity.”

Project Veritas Drops Another Video on Twitter, This One on the Plans for Global ‘Political Censorship’

We reported how Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tried to justify banning the leader of the free world from his site as well as a boatload of other folks on the right, including folks whose only ‘crime’ seems to have been posting about legal documents that made Democrats look bad. 

Project Veritas then dropped a video on Jack showing that it went far beyond Trump and that they anticipated it was going to go on long past the inauguration. Can we say “new normal,” people? Comply with our new mediaoverlords now, children, or if not prepare to have your accounts wiped.

‘Much Bigger, Much Longer’: Twitter censorship won’t stop – @jack Dorsey

Opindia

A day after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey conceded that the platform’s decision to ban incumbent US President Donald Trump limited the conversation, divided people and ‘set a dangerous precedent’, a secret audio tape has now revealed that Twitter has no plans to stop its censorship drive only with President Donald Trump, but plans to continue the witchhunt. 

Project Veritas, a conservative activist group focussed on exposing corruption, had shared a secret recording wherein Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey could be seen discussing the platform’s long term policy in terms of political censorship. The tape now released by Veritas was reportedly leaked by one employee of Twitter.

Florida Rep Wants State to Divest From BigTech

Republican Rep. Randy Fine is calling on the state to look into its investments with major tech companies and withdraw that money after President Donald Trump was kicked off several social media platforms following last week’s Capitol attack.

Representative Randy Fine, R-Palm Bay talks during the Health Quality subcommittee meetings in the House Office building at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee, Florida.

Facebook, Twitter and other companies cited Trump’s month-long crusade to stir up his supporters with false claims the presidential election was stolen. That culminated in Wednesday’s Washington rally — which Trump promoted beforehand as “wild” and turned into an insurrection.

While he stated protests should be peaceful, Trump whipped up the crowd during a speech where he directed supporters to protest at the Capitol. Once there, several clashed with police and stormed the building, resulting in several deaths.

In response, multiple technology companies banned Trump citing “the risk of further incitement of violence.” In a letter to Gov. Ron DeSantis, Fine argues Trump and his supporters are being unfairly targeted.

The letter specifically asks the Governor to “order the immediate divestment of any Florida-held equity and debt” in Alphabet (Google’s parent company), Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Twitter.

World leaders and officials blast Twitter Trump ban

Allies and critics of the US president slam Twitter’s move to ban him from its platform, citing freedom of speech.

AlJazeera
January 11, 2021

Citing the danger of inciting further acts of violence, on January 8 Twitter suspended United States President Donald Trump’s account – three days after he called on his supporters on Twitter to march towards the US Capitol building while Congress was meeting to certify Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election.

“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” Twitter said.

Thousands of rioters violently stormed the Capitol building on Wednesday, forcing lawmakers to be rushed to safety or hide under furniture. Five people died.

The move cut Trump off from his nearly 90 million followers on the platform. Facebook had issued a similar move, banning him from its social networking site, at least for the remainder of his time in office, which ends on January 20.

It also set off a wave of reactions from officials and world leaders. As several welcomed the move, many – among them critics of the divisive leader – blasted the action as politically motivated and an infringement on free speech.

Crackdown America: Mass Internet Purge, Mass Bans, MAGA Rally Attenders Arrested

Can anybody say with a straight face that America is the land of the free, home of the brave? I remember back in the day people used the expression “it’s a free country” quite often. You don’t hear that anymore. Why?

Because America is slowly becoming a soft tyranny, a high-tech mélange of fascism, corporatocracy and oligarchy working under a fake bi-party system, which in reality is a single party, CCP style, controlled by foreign lobbies and special interests.

 Something the world has never seen before in such detail. And everything happens with the consent of the governed, that’s the most flabbergasting thing. People never learn anything from history.

Watching the US going down in flames from a distance is almost surreal for a person who believed for decades that the United States of America is the freest country in the world, with free speech and justice for all. 

Not anymore, as the transnational cabal that rules the world through central banking and more recently by controlling the narrative (propaganda basically) via big tech and mainstream media, managed to finally destroy the last bastion of liberty.
