Hawaiian state house candidate Nick Ochs has been removed from the Facebook platform in yet another blatant case of electoral interference by the social media giant.
Ochs, who is running as a Republican for Hawaii House District 22, was removed from Facebook despite never violating the platform’s terms of service. He was presumably banned because of his membership in the Proud Boys, a pro-Trump fraternal organization that is widely slandered as a white supremacist group.
“It was just done without warning and now they’ve interfered with election. My opponent has a huge advantage that I don’t. He can put his message out where people will see it and I can’t and the Democrats are cheering this on,” Ochs told KITV.
The Democrats have cheered on the corporate censorship of their opposition, claiming that Ochs deserved the ban because he does not support transgender children and other LGBTP atrocities.
“This isn’t a political issue, this is a moral issue, this is about what we as a community stand for and we as welcoming people of Hawaii believe in,” said Tyler Dos Santos-Tam, who serves as chairman of the Hawaii Democratic Party.
“I hope the voters know that this does not represent Hawaii values and more importantly that they exercise their right to vote and reject this racism, bigotry, and hateful ideology,” said Ochs’ Democrat opponent Adrian Tam.
Ochs noted that he is in a mixed-race marriage and has no history of racism or bigotry.
“I’m happy to talk to anyone. And again, I am either the world’s worst racist, or I’m not a racist. You have to acknowledge that a white supremacist does not marry a black woman and have a mixed family, that is not what that word means and the people that are throwing it around are disingenuous,” Ochs said.
Ochs spoke with Big League Politics to reiterate his disgust with the entire situation.
“I just find it pretty rich that the same crowd that has the utmost concern about election interference and are complaining it’s a rampant problem do not seem to care that my Facebook account was removed without any violations and without any notice,” Ochs said to Big League Politics.
“Facebook has their so-called “Dangerous Persons” list, and they have elected to put me on it, and it doesn’t matter if my constituents are disenfranchised. Facebook is basically the only place I can reach them and now they will be denied representation and a choice because of this election,” he added.
Big League Politics has reported on Facebook’s similar tactics against Congressional candidate Laura Loomer, who is currently in litigation against the tech monopolist:
According to Allum Bokhari of Breitbart, Facebook has demanded a federal judge in Miami to immediately dismiss a defamation lawsuit that Laura Loomer brought against them.
Facebook put forward the argument that its decision to ban her as a “dangerous individual” does not fall under the grounds of defamation.
Facebook filed a motion to dismiss where it argued that “calling someone ‘dangerous’— or saying that she ‘promoted or ‘engaged’ in ‘hate’— is a protected statement of opinion.”
Facebook called attention to how other platforms have banned her and stated that “this is clearly an issue where, at a minimum, reasonable minds can disagree.”
Additionally, the motion cited Loomer’s appearances with Gavin McInnes, another individual that Facebook labeled as “dangerous”, as a justification for deplatforming her.
Breitbart News exclusively revealed a year ago that Facebook takes into account off-site behavior to determine whether certain users get deplatformed.
Bokhari noted that Facebook engages in the monitoring of “the on-platform and off-platform activities of prominent political individuals in an internal file called ‘Hate Agent policy review’.”
Loomer is a candidate for Florida’s 21st district and is running in the Republican primary.
In 2019, Facebook banned her after she described Congresswoman Ilhan Omar as “anti-Jewish.”
Loomer told Breitbart News that “Facebook had no basis for designating me as a dangerous individual, and when you examine their printed criteria for their dangerous individual policy, it is even more evident that I don’t meet any of the criteria, which includes being a terrorist and mass murderer.”
“My legal team attempted to get discovery in this case, but Facebook objected, and they would rather make excuses for their digital inquisition.”
“I will continue this legal battle for as long as it takes until Facebook is held legally responsible for what they have done. If Facebook is truly innocent as they claim, then they should stop objecting to discovery and should immediately release the names and correspondence that occurred between everyone who was involved in designing and approving the ‘dangerous individuals and organizations’ policy at Facebook, and its application to the select individuals it was applied to.”
“We’re confident of ultimate success with the case,” declared Loomer’s legal counsel, Larry Klayman. “We have the support of the district of columbia who is arguing that there is political discrimination, and this is a case that will probably go all the way to the supreme court.”
Loomer is currently staving off an antitrust lawsuit against the Big Tech titans, which is currently in the D.C. circuit court of appeals.
Until Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act is repealed or amended, Silicon Valley corporations like Facebook will continue their assault on electoral integrity and the basic rights of the American people.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
