Instagram Restores Post Dangerous Individuals

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.

“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.

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 reported:

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 Targets Alternative Video Platform Bitchute as Big Tech’s Censorship Crackdown Intensifies

Big Tech wants to cripple the free flow of information.

The social media giant Twitter is targeting Bitchute, the alternative video service that allows for content to be shared freely on the platform, with Draconian censorship.

Independent journalist Tim Pool made the discovery in a Twitter post:

This may have been done at the behest of ANTIFA-style organization, Hope Not Hate, which lobbies Big Tech to censor their political enemies.

“Major social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter should ban the sharing of Bitchute links on their platform, thereby significantly reducing the impact of this extreme and dangerous material,” Hope Not Hate wrote in their blog about Bitchute.

In addition to calling for Draconian censorship against Bitchute on social media platforms, they also call for Bitchute to be slapped with criminal repercussions for permitting free speech on their platform.

“Law enforcement investigate Bitchute for distribution of content that breaks British law, including terrorism legislation,” Hope Not Hate wrote. “The Government should introduce an Online Harms Bill that includes meaningful consequences for bespoke platforms such as Bitchute that host, promote or distribute terrorism, extremist and hateful content.”

Bitchute has grown in influence for hosting videos that have been driven off of major platforms. A viral video of front-line doctors urging for the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 was scrubbed from YouTube but can still be accessed on Bitchute.

The Bitchute links to banned videos from the courageous medical whistleblowers have been posted many different times onto Twitter:

Twitter will not allow users to access these videos without providing the following warning:

As Twitter targets Bitchute for allowing freedom of speech on their monopoly platform, they are actively allowing pedophiles to discuss their lustful desires for children.

Big League Politics has reported on how Twitter explicitly amended their terms of service so pedophiles are allowed on the platform to talk about how they want to rape kids, with child nudity being permissible in certain instances:

Social media giant Twitter has quietly amended their terms of service to allow for “discussions related to… attraction towards minors” to be allowed on their platform.

“Discussions related to child sexual exploitation as a phenomenon or attraction towards minors are permitted, provided they don’t promote or glorify child sexual exploitation in any way,” reads Twitter’s terms of service.

Twitter allow noted that they would allow for nude depictions of children on their platform in certain instances.

“Artistic depictions of nude minors in a non-sexualized context or setting may be permitted in a limited number of scenarios e.g., works by internationally renowned artists that feature minors,” they added.

Twitter’s pro-pedo policy may have been implemented at the behest of Dr. James Cantor, who describes himself as a proud Jewish homosexual. Cantor is a leading researcher and advocate for pedophiles, who he refers to as minor-attracted persons.

Cantor wrote a letter in Jan. 2018 to John Starr, who works as Director of Trust and Safety with Twitter, with other university academics. The letter urged Twitter to allow pedophiles to network and discuss their attraction to children on the monolithic social media platform.

“Many of us have worked with a group of such non-offending pedophiles, also known as anti-contact MAPs (Minor-Attracted Persons), in a peer support network called Virtuous Pedophiles (@virpeds), as well as in other support networks,” they wrote in their letter.

“Recently, a prominent member of Virtuous Pedophiles, who goes by the pseudonym Ender Wiggin (@enderphile2), had his account permanently suspended by Twitter. At least one other member of the same network, Šimon Falko (@simgiran), also had his account permanently suspended around the same time, and a number of other accounts of non-offending, anti-contact MAPs have since been permanently or temporarily suspended,” they added.

They argued that denying pedophiles a place on the social media platform may lead to these so-called virtuous pedophiles acting on their impulses to sexually victimize kids.

The values of these tech giants do not align with American values. If these hostile actors refuse to abide by American values, they ought to lose their Section 230 privileges under the Communications Decency Act.
