A Week After Getting Kicked Off YouTube, Stefan Molyneux Gets Booted from Twitter

Published

on

On July 7, 2020, right wing social media philosopher Stefan Molyneux received a suspension from Twitter, a week following his ban from YouTube. This move comes at a time when many people are questioning Big Tech’s influence on political discussion on the Internet

The ban was implemented without even so much as a warning, according to a report by RT. Molyneux explained the situation during a livestream. “It’s nice to see that Twitter is talking to tech journalists before they would talk to me,” he commented. The right-wing pundit asserted that he was suspended from the platform following the promotion of a new essay that details his values and beliefs. “It’s not hard to understand why powerful people might not want you to read what I wrote below,” Molyneux wrote in a note detailing his suspension from Twitter.

Molyneux is of the opinion that the campaign to deplatform conservative influences has begun to “energize” conservatives. He believes that his ban shows “who has the power and who doesn’t have the power.”

Twitter disputed the idea that he was kicked off for ideological reasons. Twitter provided a statement to CNN in which it contended that Molyneux “was suspended for spam and platform manipulation, specifically operating fake accounts.”

But others condemned Twitter’s decision and warned of a growing assault on free speech, expecting “the purge” to “accelerate.”

Fellow commentators such as Mike Cernovich were critical of this decision. He took it a step further by predicting that the group of renowned public figures who recently signed on to an open letter calling out cancel culture would not bother to defend Molyneux.

Cernovich tweeted,”The Venn diagram of people who just signed that Against Cancel Culture letter and those who will mention Stefan Molyneux being banned will be two wholly non-intersecting circles.”

Molyneux is the host of Freedomain Radio and was permanently unpersoned from YouTube on June 29 after supposedly being in violation of the site’s “hate speech” policies.

Molyneux’s removal comes at a time when Big Tech is putting the clamps on all forms of right-wing dissent.

BLP previously reported on Big Tech attacking pro-gun groups as part of their plan to muzzle any form of right-wing expression.

As the 2020 elections approach, this kind of censorship will likely increase against figures who actually stir the pot.

New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu Vetoes Red Flag Gun Confiscation Order

Published

on

On August 7, 2020, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu vetoed a “red flag” law proposal.

This bill would have allegedly facilitated the temporary confiscation of firearms without due process for people who are perceived to be a risk to themselves or other individuals.

Sununu cited constitutional concerns for his veto. The New Hampshire Governor’s veto of the red flag bill was a microcosm of a tense session of the New Hampshire General Court.

Democrats were able to pass House Bill 687, which would have established a red flag law. Under this law, family members could file a petition to a court to disarm an individual who is viewed as a threat to themselves or others. A complete affront to due process, the gun owner would only then be allowed to fight the action in court.

Second Amendment supporters have adamantly opposed this kind of legislation. They are of the opinion that it infringes on the right to bear arms and the right to a fair trial. Sununu was in agreement, and in his veto message he stated that the bill “goes too far and would weaken the constitutional rights of law-abiding New Hampshire citizens,” while he mentioned how the second, fourth, fifth, sixth, and 14th amendments of the U.S. Constitution would be in jeopardy if this bill was passed.

“I will continue to prioritize suicide prevention and mental health as there is much work yet to be done in New Hampshire, but that work cannot come at the expense of the constitutional rights of our citizens,” Sununu wrote.

New Hampshire is one of the more pro-gun states in the country, with a ranking of 17th place according to Guns & Ammo’s Best States for Gun Owners rankings.

For once, a Republican Governor stood up against the anti-gun mob and rejected a blatantly anti-Second Amendment bill. More Republicans should follow suit by categorically rejecting the pet projects of the radical Left.
