Conservative Journalist Laura Loomer BANNED from Facebook

Published

A conservative journalist and Big League Politics contributor was banned from Facebook on Sunday in the midst of a purge of prominent right-wing figures by Silicon Valley tech giants.

“Laura Loomer has been unpublished for repeatedly posting things that don’t comply with Facebook Terms,” the site informed Loomer. “Please review Facebook Community Standards to learn more about our policies.”

When fascist tech giants silence users, they never give a concrete reason, only a vague “violation of terms” excuse.

The ban comes on the heels of Loomer being assaulted by a Palestinian congressional candidate from Michigan. Loomer posted the video of the interaction to her Facebook page, and was subsequently banned.

In the past week, radio news giant Alex Jones was banned from YouTube, Apple and Facebook, among smaller platforms like Spotify and Pinterest. British free speech activist Tommy Robinson was then banned from Instagram. Gavin McInnes, co-founder of Vice Media was banned from Twitter.

What do Loomer and the other three purge victims have in common? They are all conservative voices with large platforms.

Many have argued over the past week that tech giants, being private entities, have the right to deny service to anyone they please. Usually this argument works.

But Silicon Valley is a vastly different case. The big four, Apple, Google (YouTube), Facebook, and Twitter have a virtual monopoly on the internet itself, which is the main platform for public discourse in the current year. Not to mention, Silicon Valley is one of the largest lobbyists of bought-and-paid for leftist politicians in Washington, D.C.

Just because the government is not officially silencing conservatives, does not mean they are not complicit.

Either way, corporate fascism is still fascism.

MeWe Goes Big Tech Authoritarian, Opts for Political Censorship

This is no different than a Big Tech platform.

Published

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.

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.
