David Horowits Banned Twitter

David Horowitz, the 80-year-old conservative writer and founder of the Dave Horrowitz Freedom Center, was banned from Twitter this evening with no explanation from the big tech platform.

Twitter has been in the midst of a purge over the past 24 hours, banning multiple parody accounts and an account that chronicled instances of violence against supporters of President Donald J. Trump last night.

Tonight they continued their censorship spree by banning Horowitz, who is widely respected as an intellectual on both sides of the aisle.

Horowitz is a conservative writer and commentator who has written dozens of books, including “Dark Agenda: The War to Destroy Christian America”, “Progressive Racism”, and “The Big Agenda: President Trump’s Plan to Save America”.

Big League Politics reached out a Twitter for a comment and did not receive a response in time for publication.

Last night, Twitter banned a popular parody account mocking Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and seemed to cite its parody nature as the reason, even though the account followed its rules by identifying itself as a parody in both its name and bio.

Big League Politics reported:

The @AOCpress account was run by Twitter user @OfficeOfMike, who was also banned, and posted over-the-top and highly satirical tweets parodying the policies and beliefs of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. It clearly marked itself as a parody both in the name of the account, and in the account’s bio area, with the sentence “I’m the boss… you mad bro? (parody)”.

This type of self identification as a parody account would seem to be precisely what Twitter requires for such an account to exist on its platform.

According to the rules Twitter sent to the @AOCpress account’s email address, which the big tech platform claims the account broke.

This latest purge comes as Facebook is outed for employing a former Hillary Clinton campaign press contact who also worked in the Obama White House to inform the media about its decision to ban Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, and Milo Yiannopoulos.

UPDATE:

After a massive conservative backlash, it appears Twitter has reinstated Horowitz’s account, though it has not restored his Twitter followers. He went from having over 60,000 followers to roughly 300 at the time of publication.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Begs for Government Mandates on ‘What Discourse Should Be Allowed’

Zuckerberg doesn’t have the courage to really stand for free speech.

Published

on

While Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg regularly pays lip service to free speech, he demands for more government control over the public discourse at the same time.

Zuckerberg showed what a snake he is during an appearance at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday.

“There should be more guidance and regulation from the states on basically — take political advertising as an example — what discourse should be allowed?” Zuckerberg said to a group of Western leaders Saturday at the prestigious event. “Or, on the balance of free expression and some things that people call harmful expression, where do you draw the line?”

“There are a lot of decisions in these areas that are really just balances between different social values,” Zuckerberg added. “It’s about coming up with an answer that society feels is legitimate and that they can get behind and understand that you drew the line here on the balance of free expression and safety. It’s not just that there’s one right answer. People need to feel like, ‘OK, enough people weighed in, and that’s why the answer should be this, and we can get behind that.’”

Zuckerberg will be meeting with European Union officials throughout the week. He is expected to give them the blessing they want to regulate freedom of speech out of existence.

“We need to make sure that the internet can continue to be a place where everyone can share their views openly and where the legal framework around this is one that encodes democratic values,” Zuckerberg said.

“I do think that as part of that, we’ve got to move forward on regulation. Hopefully, we move forward quickly before a more authoritarian model gets adopted in a lot of places first,” he added.

Earlier this month, Zuckerberg was attempting to dupe suckers by claiming that he and his monopoly social media platform were dedicated to preserving freedom of speech:

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced during the Silicon Slopes Tech Summit in Utah on Friday that his tech corporation is going to support freedom of speech from this point forward.

“This is the new approach, and I think it’s going to piss off a lot of people. But frankly, the old approach was pissing off a lot of people too, so let’s try something different,” Zuckerberg said.

Zuckerberg is paying lip service to free speech and encryption while he is under fire from every angle. Conservatives are criticizing Facebook for deplatforming right-wing voices while liberals beg for more Draconian Big Brother censorship against their enemies. Zuckerberg has become a convenient punching bag as political polarization rises.

“Increasingly we’re getting called to censor a lot of different kinds of content that makes me really uncomfortable,” Zuckerberg said.

“We’re going to take down the content that’s really harmful, but the line needs to be held at some point,” he added.

Zuckerberg has the audacity to paint himself as a hero standing up for digital freedom during a tumultuous time.

“If you’re not out there standing for things that people care about then it’s not possible for people to feel that strongly about what you’re doing,” he said.

Zuckerberg talks about Facebook’s new focus in favor of freedom of speech while his platform cracks down on alternative media like never before.

Facebook has outsourced their censorship operation to supposedly “independent” fact checkers that flag stories that go against the globalist narrative. Pages that share the flagged stories are given strikes on the platform, and eventually censored from the news feed.

Fork-tongued hypocrites like Zuckerberg can never be counted upon to defend sacred rights. That is why Facebook and other Big Tech giants must lose their special government-enforced privileges under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act if they do not protect freedom of speech, as Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has suggested.
