After a gang of establishment conservatives dogpiled on Big League Politics for condemning their ill-informed stance on tech censorship, we dug into their Twitter history and discovered — no surprise — they were vehemently #NeverTrump in the 2016 campaign.
On Friday, Big League Politics wrote an article exposing the naivete or complicity of Campus Reform media director and former Marco Rubio stooge Cabot Phillips on the issue of tech censorship. In response, Phillips and his fellow establishment conservatives spent the next several hours attempting to smear Big League Politics on Twitter. Phillips is the son of Tim Phillips, president of the Koch-funded group Americans For Prosperity, which is lobbying Congress to defend Big Tech from any antitrust measures.
After investigating who was joining in on the dogpile, we discovered many of Phillips’ supporters, including writers for The Resurgent, Town Hall, former College Republicans officials, and others were obnoxiously against President Donald J. Trump in the last election.
It began with one Big League Politics journalist searching the Twitter history of Phillips for tweets containing “Trump”, and discovering page after page of anti-Trump posts.
We then moved on to Caleb Hull, who called into question Big League Politics’ bombshell exclusive that Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam had a racist photo in his medical school yearbook showing him either in Ku Klux Klan robes or blackface.
While Hull apparently deleted hundreds of tweets mentioning President Trump, we found one he missed from 2018, in which he attempted to slam the president for replacing Rex Tillerson with Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State.
Big League Politics then examined prominent individuals who used the “like” feature to express support for Phillips and Hull.
These include former president of the Berkeley College Republicans, Brad Devlin, media strategist and Resurgent writer Gabriella Hoffman, College Republicans National Committee official Ben Rajadurai, Town Hall contributor Micah Rate, NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck, and Washington Examiner contributor Angela Morabito.
All of these individuals had volumes of anti-Trump tweets published from 2015 through 2017, though many made a 180 degree turn and suddenly began defending President Trump after he was inaugurated president in 2017.
Devlin, for instance, called the entire Republican primary field “pathetic”, including conservative superstars President Trump, Sen. Rand Paul, and Sen. Tex Cruz.
However, he seemed to have deleted most of his more offensive tweets. The other names mentioned were not so careful.
Morabito engaged in the conspiracy theory that former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewendowski assaulted failed journalist Michelle Fields during a campaign event, and insinuated that President Trump “bought off” Breitbart News.
She also mocked President Trump’s immigration policy of “extreme vetting”, likening it to reality television.
From here things escalated quickly.
Houck called himself “proudly #NeverTrump,” wrote that Trump’s candidacy depressed him, claimed he was incompetent and unintelligent, and gleefully claimed that President Trump would never win the election. These are only some of the most egregious anti-Trump tweets we discovered.
Meanwhile, Rajadurai was busy claiming that C.J. Pearson, the youthful African American conservative, only endorsed President Trump to receive attention, revealing that he dislikes Sen. Elizabeth Warren only slightly more than President Trump, condemning the president is a racist, and shilling for failed presidential candidate Jeb(!) Bush.
Rate compared the Republican Party under Trump to a “dumpster fire”, claimed President Trump welcoming Stephen Bannon onto the campaign represented an olive branch to the Alt Right, and called President Trump a “choke artist” with no path to victory in the general election. He also declared that President Trump was not a conservative.
Hoffman was perhaps the most prolific anti-Trump Twitter user of the bunch in 2016, comparing President Trump to Smeagol from “Lord of the Rings”, slamming him for keeping his eyes open (yes, really), celebrating a crowd of lobbyists and Republican establishment members booing at the president during the early debates, and claiming that President Trump’s supporters had been “hoodwinked.”
She also was convinced that Sen. Cruz and Rubio could team up to “take down” President Trump’s candidacy long after the then-candidate’s electoral victory was all but assured.
However, at least Hoffman remained consistent over the years prior to changing her tune after President Trump’s inauguration. She had called him a “Trojan Horse Liberal” in 2011.
Perhaps this should come as no surprise to those who have been closely monitoring these #NeverTrump stooges over the years, but it would appear the vast majority of those celebrating big tech companies censoring and banning prominent conservative voices like Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, and Milo Yiannopoulos were all vehemently anti-Trump during his candidacy.
After all, if those who used their voices to help President Trump get elected in 2016 are banned, the formerly #NeverTrump conservatives who have embedded themselves in the America First movement may finally get their wish of seeing the president fail electorally in 2020.

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.
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.
