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.
RIGGED SHAM: Discord Bans Wall Street Bets Server for ‘Hate Speech’ as Small Investors Blow out Hedge Funds
Big Tech shills for oligarchs.
Discord has banned a popular r/WallStreetBets server from its service, with the timing of the ban coming as small investors make a killing through purchasing stocks ‘shorted’ by Wall Street hedge funds.
Discord took the weak excuse of “Hate speech” for banning the server.
Retail investors had been using the Discord server for speculate about finance and the stock market, discussing shorted stocks such as Gamestop, AMC, and Nokia. Wall Street hedge funds have bet on these companies to fail, borrowing almost 100% of their stock at dirt-cheap prices. The casino gamble has failed, with individual investors scooping up the uninflated stock and essentially driving up stock prices by hundreds of dollars.
The server has been on our Trust & Safety team’s radar for some time due to occasional content that violates our Community Guidelines, including hate speech, glorifying violence, and spreading misinformation. Over the past few months, we have issued multiple warnings to the server admin.
Today, we decided to remove the server and its owner from Discord for continuing to allow hateful and discriminatory content after repeated warnings.
To be clear, we did not ban this server due to financial fraud related to GameStop or other stocks. Discord welcomes a broad variety of personal finance discussions, from investment clubs and day traders to college students and professional financial advisors. We are monitoring this situation and in the event there are allegations of illegal activities, we will cooperate with authorities as appropriate.
What a coincidence- Discord decides to ban the server the very same day that retail investors buy into stocks uninflated by the biggest Wall Street fat cats.
The San Francisco tech company has now sought to interfere in free markets on behalf of powerful Wall Street interests, cracking down on the little guy with bogus accusations. Don’t count on them facing any scrutiny for the anti-competitive action from the mainstream media.
