CNN is Now Pressuring Encrypted Messaging Platform Telegram to Ban Right-Wing Voices

Telegram has served as a haven for dissidents.

CNN is lobbying Telegram, the encrypted messaging platform that has grown in relevance for providing a haven to dissidents banned by monopoly tech platforms, to conduct Draconian censorship on its own platform.

The fake news leader has put Telegram in their sights for refusing to censor content from so-called white supremacists.

“White supremacist groups have become much more active on the social media network Telegram as protests over racism and police brutality sweep the US. That’s according to a new report by the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, a London-based think tank,” CNN wrote.

The Institute for Strategic Dialogue partners with Facebook, Google, Twitter, Microsoft, the Soros-backed Open Society Foundations, and many different government bureaucracies to lobby for Draconian censorship on social media platforms.

CNN continued: “More than 200 channels, many with thousands of members, include frequent and explicit threats of violence against minority communities and Black Lives Matter protesters, researchers said. White supremacists have made their way over to Telegram because it’s less active in moderating content than other social media networks, the report said.”

Telegram is refusing to buckle thus far under the media pressure. They told CNN that their app is “a neutral platform used both by Black Lives Matter and their opponents” and said calls for violence are not encouraged on the platform.

CNN is after Telegram because they have not followed Big Tech’s lead of unpersoning individuals with views deemed problematic to the political establishment. Silicon Valley giants often coordinate in how they remove individuals from their platform, showing how it is a systematic conspiracy designed to crush certain voices.

Big League Politics reported on how Google and Facebook came together to stifle dissent during the COVID-19 pandemic as the public slipped into mass hysteria:

On May 7, 2020, Facebook Inc and YouTube announced that they removed a video that allegedly made “medically unsubstantiated” claims with regards to the Wuhan virus pandemic.

The 26-minute long video titled “Plandemic” gained tremendous traction the past week all throughout social media platforms. It has clips of Judy Mikovits, a vaccine skeptic, who believes that a significant portion of vaccines are dangerous.

Mikovits expresses skepticism towards mask wearing, criticized shutdown orders, and other restrictions that keep people from congregating at venues such as beaches.

In the video, Mikovits describes the Wuhan virus as a conspiracy devised by people attempting to profit from vaccines. She also expressed various concerns about vaccines and the unintended consequences they could bring about.

The Wuhan virus surfaced in late 2019 and there has been no vaccine developed and or cure for it so far.

YouTube announced that it was working to take down the video in accordance with its rules against “content that includes medically unsubstantiated diagnostic advice” about the Wuhan virus.

However, on May 7, there were still slightly edited copies of the original video available on YouTube.

Twitter Inc announced that it had blocked users from tweeting out the hashtags #PlagueOfCorruption and #Plandemicmovie, but said that content in a shorter clip that was posted on its platform was not in violation of its policy against Wuhan virus “misinformation.”

The companies have faced significant pressure from the World Health Organization and other health authorities globally to censor harmful content and misinformation about the pandemic.

This is par for the course for social media giants’ desire to censor online speech.

Telegram has shown that alternatives will spring up in the marketplace to fend off Big Brother, but the establishment will continue to make it difficult for them to operate in an era of Orwellian tyranny.

Amazon Updates App Icon After People Complain That It Reminded Them of Adolf Hitler

The left is obsessed with Nazis.

Published

Amazon has changed the logo of its smartphone app after people said that it reminded them of Adolf Hitler.

The original logo (on the left in the image above) depicted a piece of blue tape above the classic smile arrow. Amazon introduced it in January to replace the image of a shopping cart.

Some people—presumably leftists, because no one else is as obsessed with Nazis as them—claimed on Twitter that the combination of the smile and the tape looked too much like Hitler’s toothbrush mustache.

This is the second time in recent days that leftists have seen Nazi-related imagery where there is none. Over this past weekend Twitter blew up after some claimed that CPAC’s stage setup resembled the Odal rune. Aside from the ridiculousness of the idea that CPAC intentionally shaped it like the Odal rune, the rune is not a Nazi symbol per se. The Scandinavians of late antiquity and the early Middle Ages used runes as letters of their alphabet. The Odal rune only became a symbol after a couple of SS divisions appropriated it as such.

Back in June Big League Politics reported how Facebook cited “Nazi symbolism” as an excuse to justify removing Trump campaign ads that attacked Antifa:

Facebook has censored political advertisements from President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and the Trump campaign targeting the ANTIFA domestic terrorist group.

The social media giant is claiming that the ads were guilty of “violating our policy against organized hate.” They claim that the campaign was using symbols from Nazi Germany, which is not quite accurate.

“Our policy prohibits using a banned hate group’s symbol to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or discusses the symbol,” a spokesperson from Facebook wrote.

[…]

However, the Trump campaign pointed out in response to the censorship that the inverted red triangle symbol is “widely used by antifa.” A fact check confirms that the Trump campaign is telling the truth about the symbol’s use.

Leftists like to condemn conservatives who dabble in “conspiracy theories” yet at the same time claim to see Nazis and Nazism everywhere they look. Very deluded behavior.
