Tinder Bans Marine Ted Cruz

United States Marine Infantryman Greg Aselbekian uploaded a photo of himself with Sen. Ted Cruz to Tinder, and was promptly banned from the popular dating app for violating its terms of service as a result.

After Aselbekian was punished by Tinder for uploading a photo of himself in his Marine dress uniform, he replaced the offending photo with an image of himself standing next to Cruz. Fearing it may be removed, Aselbekian captured a screen shot of the image on his profile.

Soon after, Aselbekian was notified by Tinder that it was banning him from the platform, presumably for posting two offending images.

Speaking to Big League Politics, Aselbekian notes that another Tinder user, who he presumably chose not to “match” with, was allowed to post a photo of herself with former President Bill Clinton, an alleged rapist.

According to Aselbekian, his Tinder account “was removed about 20 minutes after I uploaded the Cruz pic, and I took a screenshot because I knew they’d take it down.” He added, “But having a picture next to a [alleged] rapist is okay?”

I logged into Tinder to message one of my (many) matches and I got the notification saying that my account was banned,” he added.

The infantryman first had an image of himself in his dress uniform removed by Tinder over Memorial Day weekend.

Big League Politics reported:

Aselbekian confirmed to Big League Politics that his military uniform must have triggered someone at Tinder, as it was removed from his profile with only a vague explanation as to why it is not fit for the dating platform.

I woke up this morning and logged onto tinder and got a notification saying that they removed my main picture – the image of me in my dress blues – because it apparently violated their terms of service,” wrote Aselbekian. “It’s Memorial Day Weekend, what great timing, too.”

He added that he had, by chance, saved a screen shot of his Tinder profile featuring him in his uniform, and was thus able to provide the image to Big League Politics.

The infantryman was also recently censored by Facebook for joking that the platform would ban conservatives over virtually anything, including asserting that the sky is blue.

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.
