Erick Erickson, the Republican establishment blowhard and general loser who celebrated after Alex Jones was banned from social media, and called prominent conservatives including Jones, Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Paul Joseph Watson “reactionaries” and not true conservatives, has now been suspended from Twitter for making fun of Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
Erickson, himself a loathsome creature of the establishment who tried desperately to ingratiate himself to the left wing big tech overlords, has been hit with a suspension for joking about Warren’s repeated lies regarding her ancestry.
The 43-year-old Red State founder joked that Warren was “set to introduce the Wrecking American Prosperity Under Marxism, or WAMPUM Act, wherein she gives everything away for free.”
This was apparently too controversial for Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, his Saudi Arabian investors, and the other Twitter powers, and landed him with a timed suspension.

Erickson was allowed into his account to delete the offending tweet, and is now able to use his account but is not able to post or reply to tweets, retweet, like other tweets, or otherwise engage with users on the platform.
It appears he used this opportunity to delete his previous tweets bashing prominent conservatives who were banned or suspended from the platform.

In addition to celebrating the mass deplatforming of Jones, Erickson previously derided Loomer, Yiannopoulos, Watson, and Jones in yet another deleted tweet, in which he informed Twitter users that the banned conservatives “weren’t actually conservatives. They were reactionaries.”
Apparently the middle aged conservative now realizes that celebrating his fellow conservatives being purged from social media did not earn him many allies on the right, and did not ingratiate him to the left.
These “reactionary” voices would likely have stood behind his First Amendment right to tweet mildly offensive jokes about Warren, had he not vocally and repeatedly laughed as they were systematically removed from everything big tech.
Erickson now finds himself in a dangerous place, precisely where Big League Politics and other media outlets politely warned him he would find himself.
Let this be a lesson to the establishment members of the Republican Party: If you are to the right of Joseph Stalin, the left wants you banned. No matter how vocal you are in your worship of the “private company” argument, or how often you repeatedly kiss the asses of Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg, given the opportunity they would gleefully remove every conservative voice from their platforms.
Former Google, Amazon Operative Slated to Lead Biden DOJ Antitrust Division
Putting the fox in charge of the hen house.
The Biden administration is actively considering a career operative of Google and Amazon to lead the Department of Justice antitrust division, The Intercept reported on Friday.
Renata Hesse previously worked in the DOJ’s Antitrust Division during the Obama administration.
Renata Hesse has led the Antitrust Division before so this is Biden's signal to the left that he loves recycling. Hesse has also worked for Google, Amazon, and has a long history as a Silicon Valley lawyer focused on IP law, satisfying the oligarchs. Balance. Build back better.

Hesse advertises working with Amazon as an attorney to help the megacorporation avoid liability for trust monopoly action.
Hesse acted as counsel for Google during 2018 Federal Trade Commission hearings, arguing that Google maintains its monopoly share of the market for search engine queries on the basis of its product alone. Hesse ignored Google’s anti-competitive practices, such as shutting out competitors from search results.
Hesse would presumably oversee the DOJ’s Antitrust Division as it proceeds with historic antitrust litigation against Google. The corporate attorney would presumably be pressured to recuse from the case, unless she’s determined to deliver a favorable outcome for her former clients regardless of existing antitrust law.
At least one other lawyer who has litigated cases against Facebook and Google is under consideration for the Antitrust division.
Jonathan Kanter, a plaintiff's lawyer who helped design the cases against Google and Facebook, remains "in the mix" for the same job, sources indicate.

The Antitrust Division of the DOJ is intended to hold America’s most powerful and unaccountable corporations responsible. Hesse has actively fought against such outcomes for years as a Silicon Valley-aligned attorney. Her appointment as antitrust attorney of the DOJ would indicate that Biden intends to pursue a union of the federal government with Big Tech and America’s most powerful oligarchs.
