Monroe, known for his long Tweet threads and shoe-leather research which often exposed conniving leftist media and political figures, allegedly violated Twitter’s rules “against evading permanent suspension.” He had nearly 50,000 followers.

Over the weekend, Monroe busted several prominent leftist media figures for sharing a fake quote attributed to President Donald J. Trump, fabricated by TIME columnist Ian Bremmer. He made a thread exposing those who shared the quote without verifying its truthfulness, embarrassing propagandists like CNN’s Ana Navarro, Wall Street Journal’s Farnaz Fassihi, and NPR’s Pam Fessler.

Monroe is the latest casualty of Silicon Valley tech censorship.

Early this month, Facebook and Instagram banned Laura Loomer, Paul Joseph Watson, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Alex Jones. Loomer, Jones, and Yiannopoulos, along with other prominent right-wing figures like Gavin McInnes, Tommy Robinson, and Mike Morrison have been banned from Twitter.

Trump has often railed against the social media giants, but his administration has yet to take action to curb their censorship.

“The wonderful Diamond and Silk have been treated so horribly by Facebook. They work so hard and what has been done to them is very sad – and we’re looking into. It’s getting worse and worse for Conservatives on social media!” he said at the beginning of May.

MeWe Goes Big Tech Authoritarian, Opts for Political Censorship

This is no different than a Big Tech platform.

Published

on

Supposed Big Tech alternative MeWe is opting for the path of political censorship and repression, caving to demands of media leftists to censor right-leaning political content.

MeWe’s administrators confirmed they would close so-called ‘Stop the Steal’ groups and purge their content from its platform earlier this month.

MeWe styles itself as somewhat of a Facebook alternative, advertising user privacy and independence from a data surveillance business model. MeWe’s administrators have taken to signalling against real free speech social media platforms such as Parler and Gab, a thumb in the face of their largely anti-establishment user base, many of whom joined the service to begin with in pursuit of a Facebook alternative that doesn’t censor.

An overwhelming majority of Americans who attended ‘Stop the Steal’ protests are peaceful and non-violent, with only a handful getting out of control during the January 6th raucous US Capitol riot. MeWe’s decision to implement political censorship en masse makes it no different than the worst Big Tech authoritarians, except for the deceptive marketing of a free speech social media platform.

In any event, a social media platform that bans arbitrarily defined “haters” is almost assured to have draconian anti-free speech policies. MeWe has opted for the path of a minuscule Big Tech clone in a betrayal of its own user base. Gab offers a wide range of social services without the politically correct censorship, and MeWe’s users should embrace it as the real home of free speech online.
