Jack From Twitter Shows Some Courage, Don’t Expect It To Last

Published

on

In a shocking plot twist to the recent pattern of censorship of conservatives on social media, the CEO of Twitter is standing up to leftist mob and defending Alex Jones.

“We didn’t suspend Alex Jones or Infowars yesterday,” wrote Jack Dorsey on his platform. “We know that’s hard for many but the reason is simple: he hasn’t violated our rules. We’ll enforce if he does. And we’ll continue to promote a healthy conversational environment by ensuring tweets aren’t artificially amplified.”

Though there should not be anything “hard” about platforming dissenting opinions, the political left was troubled by Twitter’s refusal to cave and ban Jones, like their peers at Apple, YouTube (Google), and Facebook.

For now, Jack has thrown Jones and InfoWars a bone, perhaps understanding that they need the political right to use their platform in order to stay in business. Unlike the other tech giants that have banned Jones, Twitter just became profitable for the first time in Q1 of 2018. Rocking the boat now is probably not sensible, especially when right wing personalities like President Trump are the only reason many users are on the platform.

That said, Twitter has an atrocious record when it comes to making sure that conservatives are allowed to voice their opinions on platform.

In fact, they’ve done their own fair share of censoring, in perhaps, a much sneakier and dirtier way.

The company recently admitted to “shadowbanning” accounts in a statement claiming that they do not practice such censorship.

In an investigative report, Vice found that House Republicans Rep. Devin Nunes, Rep. Matt Gaetz, Rep. Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows of North Carolina, all of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, were “shadowbanned,” while none of their liberal counterparts were.

Sunday, conservative firebrand and pundit Candace Owens was suspended from the platform for tweeting the same exact content as recently-hired racist (but politically left) New York Times editor Sarah Jeong, which Owens did to illustrate the differences in how Twitter treats the political left versus the right.

For now, Dorsey is sticking to his guns regarding Alex Jones and Infowars, but we’re waiting for the other shoe to drop any minute now.

Facebook Censors Project Veritas Video, Keeping Coronavirus Hysteria in High Gear

Big Brother is ramping up due to coronavirus.

Published

on

Facebook is reportedly throwing a Project Veritas video off of their monolithic social media platform because the video contains information about coronavirus that is unapproved by the political and media establishment.

CNN reporter Oliver Darcy reported that Facebook would be removing the Veritas video from their platform because of nebulous and unspecified policy violations. Veritas founder James O’Keefe blamed Darcy for allegedly being a snitch and attempting to get his video removed from social media platforms.

O’Keefe also blasted New York Times reporter Andrew Jacobs for his moral preening in criticizing his coronavirus reporting.

The controversial video published by Veritas shows O’Keefe talking with boots on the ground at coronavirus testing sites. He talked to Army personnel and health care workers who claimed the pandemic is not as bad as the media and government officials are purporting it to be.

Certain transcripts from the Veritas video can be seen here:

James O’Keefe: “What about the situation itself. Is it as bad as–the media is saying? The whole pandemic?”
New York Army National Guardsman: “Oh no. It’s the flu!”
O’Keefe: “That’s all it is?”
Guardsman: “It’s the flu.”

O’Keefe: “Is it as bad as they’re saying, this pandemic? Everyone’s freaking out. Is it bad, is it overblown by the media, what is it like?”
Medical worker: “Is it what?”
O’Keefe: “Is the media accurately reporting or is it as bad as people are saying?”
Medical worker: “No.”
O’Keefe: “It’s not as bad as the—”
Medical worker: “It’s precautionary.”
O’Keefe: “The media is making it out bigger?”
Medical worker: “Yes.”

O’Keefe’s video has garnered controversy because it goes against the narrative of fear and hysteria that has been pushed by the fake news media, government bureaucrats and official expert class.

“The rollout of our findings does not endorse COVID-19 behavior one way or another, nor do we encourage others. Our goal is to inform the public and allow the public to make judgments on the issues,” O’Keefe said. “Emotionally driven, knee-jerk reactions journalists are the last thing the public should be subjected to in a time of crisis.”

“I realize this will probably upset some, but Project Veritas goes to the front lines to get unfiltered, raw information, to the public. We’re not here to project a narrative or even to draw a conclusion—we don’t even know who the villains are, if any,” O’Keefe added.

Despite Facebook’s reported censorship of the Veritas video, there are no plans for Twitter and YouTube to remove the content from their platforms at the present time.
