After Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Laura Loomer were named “hate figures” and considered dangerous by Instagram and Facebook, Big League Politics was informed that users could still express their support for these individuals so long as they did not post videos featuring them or links to their broadcast.
Instagram user Alxthelord tested the extent of Instagram’s decision to unperson Watson, Yiannopoulos, and Loomer by posting an image featuring three photos he took with the conservative stars on his account after the ban. Within a day, his post featuring the “hate figures” was removed by Instagram, despite the platform’s statement to Big League Politics making clear this would not happen.
Big League Politics reached out to Facebook, the parent company of Instagram, for comment on Saturday night and the post was reinstated on Sunday morning. An Instagram spokesperson replied to our inquiry, stating that that the post did not violate their policies and would be restored.

Will Facebook ban me too for posting a picture with “Dangerous” people? . #StopTheBias . 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 #Conservative #MAGA #TrumpTrain #MakeAmericaGreatAgain #Republican #DonaldTrump #Censorship #Zuck #RegulateBigTech #Milo #FreeMilo
“But it shouldn’t have taken that much trouble to get it restored,” said Alxthelord to Big League Politics on Twitter, “Also is if it does not violate their policies then why was it deleted?”
The user had voiced his frustration and disgust with Instagram’s decision to remove his post on Twitter, where it was eventually picked up by Infowars during one of its broadcasts, and came to Big League Politics’ attention.
I posted this picture of me with PJW, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Laura Loomer on Instagram yesterday.
Instagram took it down.
It is now against their “Community Guidelines” to post pictures with people who they have labeled “Dangerous”

This would appear to be yet another case of accidental content removal that seems to exclusively impact the right.
Last week we reported that Facebook and Instagram may now ban the account of any user who posts a link or video featuring Infowars or Alex Jones, and it would seem logical that this would apply to the other banned individuals as well.
However, the Instagram post only contained images of Alxthelord posing beside the new media celebrities.
Big League Politics contacted Facebook in an attempt to gain clarification after two different media outlets published conflicting reports about the future of Infowars’ content on the big tech platform. The Verge reported that users could continue to post content and commentary complimentary toward Infowars, while The Atlantic reported that any users posting Infowars content would see it removed and possibly face a ban.
In an attempt to clarify its stance, Facebook told Big League Politics that the platform will let users make posts complimentary about Infowars or reflecting them in a positive nature, but will not allow users to post links to Infowars videos, unless they are doing so to condemn the content.
This would seem to mean that simply linking to the Infowars website is now prohibited, as virtually every article includes videos featuring Jones, and a live stream or replay of the most recent episode of “The Alex Jones Show” is featured on the sidebar of the Infowars website.
It seems as though even Facebook and Instagram employees are grappling with the intricacies of this next level of big tech censorship.
Twitter Censors Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder for Warning of Dangers about Mail-in Voting
Big Tech is out of control.
Twitter has censored Obama-era attorney general Eric Holder for warning liberal Democrats against mail-in voting at this stage of the electoral race.
“It’s too late to use the mails,” Holder wrote in his shuttered tweet. “Given Supreme Court rulings I urge everyone to now vote in person; early vote or use drop boxes.”
Holder is referring to recent rulings in places like Wisconsin and Michigan, two battleground states where the Democrats were pushing for votes to be counted even if they were submitted by mail following election day. These rulings have made it significantly more difficult for Democrats to commit widespread voter fraud in those states.
“Protect your health but don’t let the Court and the deliberately crippled Postal Service deprive you of your most precious civil right. Plan your vote,” Holder added.
In response to Holder’s plea to Democrats, Twitter limited the distribution of his tweet and provided the following warning: “Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about how to participate in an election or another civic process.”
Left-wing journalist Michael Tracey, who has been a principled opponent to Big Brother censorship by Silicon Valley monopolies, pointed out how these corporate restrictions on free speech will inevitably hurt the liberals who are begging for it out of political expediency:

Big League Politics has reported on the many occasions that Twitter has censored President Trump for voicing concerns about the security of mail-in voting:
The social media giant Twitter is censoring President Donald Trump again, placing a warning on a tweet he published Sunday morning about the dangers of mail-in voting.
“So now the Democrats are using Mail Drop Boxes, which are a voter security disaster. Among other things, they make it possible for a person to vote multiple times. Also, who controls them, are they placed in Republican or Democrat areas? They are not Covid sanitized. A big fraud!” Trump wrote in his Tweet.
“This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about civic and election integrity. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible,” Twitter wrote in their warning about Trump’s Tweet…
This is not the first time that the platform has censored Trump because of comments he made about mail-in voting. Twitter redirected users to establishment propaganda in favor of mail-in voting earlier this year after Trump made a post about its dangers…
While Twitter considers President Trump’s attempts to protect the integrity of the U.S. elections a violation of their terms of service, they allow pedophiles to discuss raping children on their platform.
If President Trump loses next week’s election, the Orwellian Nightmare becomes the new normal, and Democrat traitors will be responsible for ushering in this permanent dystopia.
