BIG TECH DISCRIMINATION? Twitter Suspends Entire Leadership Team of ‘Latinos for Trump’ From Platform

They were reinstated today after a brief suspension from the social media giant.

The “Latinos for Trump” organization issued a press release on Wednesday indicating that their entire leadership team had been suspended from Twitter, in another Big Tech attack against right-wing conservatives.

“On September 18th, Twitter management suspended the accounts for the entire leadership team of Latinos for Trump organization, who operates under Americanos. As a company that claim’s [sic] its purpose is ‘to serve the public conversation,’ the unjustified suspensions of these accounts is not only contrary to their stated purpose, but also silences the voice of a significant minority group,” the release said.

They announced in a social media post that they were finally reinstated on Friday. The effected accounts were listed as @FabMagaDiva, @reallatinos4US, @WeAreAmericanos, @HispanicTrumpTX, @CassieJ_Tx, @secureUSA45, @mgtz1995, @Spi3, @Spi3inc, @orejitagirl, and @HenryGrullon4.

The Latinos for Trump claim that Twitter offered them no reason as to why they made the decision to suspend the various accounts.

“Twitter suspended our user accounts without providing a warning and without providing a reason for the suspension,” the press release said. “We are still conducting an internal review of the situation but have found nothing to justify a suspension.”

“What we have found is the suspect timing and comprehensive nature of the suspensions. These suspension came in less than 48 hours since President Trump held his rally in New Mexico. During this rally, numerous Hispanic supporters where seen on TV wearing ‘Latinos for Trump’ T-shirts. In less than 48 hours later, all our leadership accounts were suspended by Twitter,” they added.

The group believes that Twitter’s actions are a form of discrimination, as the leftist thought control apparatus desperately wants to suppress minority voices that support President Trump.

“Although Twitter claims to enforce their rules ‘impartially and consistently’ and will let someone know ‘about actions taken against your account and why,’ they have not. Although Twitter claims to ‘be transparent about actions we take,’ they have not,” the release said.

“We are deeply troubled by the overly secretive and discriminatory actions by Twitter management against our Latino based group. We also invite greater public scrutiny into the troubling actions of Twitter,” the release adds.

As Twitter and other Big Tech platforms get more restrictive heading into the 2020 presidential election, the only way to stop their Big Brother scheming may be to change their regulatory status under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has introduced legislation to do just that:

Hawley’s bill, the Ending Support for Internet Censorship Act, would remove that exemption for Big Tech firms if they act like publishers instead of neutral platforms. Corporations would have to comply with external audits proving their algorithms and content moderation are not biased.

“With Section 230, tech companies get a sweetheart deal that no other industry enjoys: complete exemption from traditional publisher liability in exchange for providing a forum free of political censorship,” Hawley said in a statement. “Unfortunately, and unsurprisingly, big tech has failed to hold up its end of the bargain.”

“There’s a growing list of evidence that shows big tech companies making editorial decisions to censor viewpoints they disagree with,” Hawley added. “Even worse, the entire process is shrouded in secrecy because these companies refuse to make their protocols public. This legislation simply states that if the tech giants want to keep their government-granted immunity, they must bring transparency and accountability to their editorial processes and prove that they don’t discriminate.”

With Big Tech so dedicated to their plan to use Orwellian censorship to manipulate next year’s presidential election, legislation such what has been proposed by Hawley may be the only thing that can reign them in and protect our democracy.

Facebook Runs Electoral Interference to Stop Surging Congressional Candidate Laura Loomer

Facebook’s discriminatory practices against Loomer may be illegal.

Published

Congressional candidate Laura Loomer has dominated fundraising numbers and is crushing the polls, but Big Tech is intervening in an attempt to halt her campaign’s momentum.

Loomer announced on free speech platform Gab that Facebook is banning her campaign ads in what could be considered a form of electoral interference.

“This newest ban goes beyond just a ban of the Laura Loomer For Congress Facebook Page (which is required to run ads). My campaign was told yesterday that if a PAC attempted to advertise to promote my campaign, their ads would be taken down. Facebook said their new policy is that nothing about Laura Loomer is permitted on Facebook and for the duration of the election cycle, my campaign will not get access to run any of our own ads,” Loomer wrote.

“People will be banned for simply typing my name “Laura Loomer”. We have received several reports today from supporters who said their pages were suspended because the posted my donation link and my ads!” she added.

Loomer said in a statement provided to different media outlets that this should be considered criminal electoral interference because her primary competitor, incumbent Democrat Lois Frankel, is allowed to publish ads on Facebook’s vast monopoly platform.

“I’m the only federal candidate in the nation banned from advertising on Facebook. My competitor, Lois Frankel is running ads on Facebook to reach voters, and my campaign is shut out. This is illegal election interference,” Loomer said.

“If the idea of banning Lois Frankel from advertising on Facebook outrages you, you should be equally outraged over the fact that my campaign is universally de-platformed and is being denied equal access to run ads on Facebook,” she added.

Loomer is currently suing Facebook and other tech giants due to her arbitrary removal from the platform, as Big League Politics has reported:

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 aims to become the next U.S. Representative in Florida’s 21st Congressional district in spite of the Big Tech conspiracy gunning for her.
