E.W. Jackson, a black radio host, minister and politician from Virginia, was suspended from Twitter for telling the truth about Islam, and has refused to grovel to the Big Tech overlords for his account to be reinstated.
Jackson was suspended from Twitter for posting a tweet that read “Muslims are the ones who try to terrorize and intimidate people into conversions or kill them for converting from Islam. To compare Muslims murdering Christians to Christians doing missionary work is anti-Christian bigotry.”
The Big Tech platform informed Jackson that he was promoting violence, and Twitter policies prohibit those who “promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation.”
Jackson, himself a Protestant minister, maintains he was not promoting violence in any fashion, but merely responding to an account, owned by a man named Andy West, that was promoting what Jackson considered “anti-Christian hatred.”
“I have never promoted violence or threatened anyone,” wrote Jackson on Facebook. “That was not harassment, but a response to what I considered to be anti-Christian hatred. I was pointing out that it is Muslims who are doing violence.”
Jackson went on, “‘Andy West’ suggested an equivalence between Christians who he thought were using their missionary work to convert children improperly on the one hand and Islamists who are killing Christians on the other.”
My friends, I have now been honored to be among the conservatives whose twitter accounts have been suspended. In…
He explained that Twitter demanded he delete the offending tweet, and any other offensive content on his Twitter feed. In a second Facebook post, Jackson said he refused to “grovel and delete the tweet,” and that he has appealed Twitter’s decision to suspend his account, because he feels this would be admitting to advocating violence, something he insists he never did.
“That’s an excuse for their bias,” wrote Jackson.
Twitter will now review his suspension, and may permanently lock Jackson out of his Twitter account, effectively banning him, if they determine the tweet needs to be deleted and he refuses to remove it.
MeWe Goes Big Tech Authoritarian, Opts for Political Censorship
This is no different than a Big Tech platform.
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.
MeWe is NOT an "anything goes" site like Parler or Gab. MeWe's TOS is strict & clear (https://t.co/oJP1JvrxiZ)- haters, lawbreakers, violence inciters etc. are not welcome. We have an outstanding Trust & Safety team that works hard every day to investigate & remove TOS-violators
— MeWe (@mewe) January 10, 2021
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.
