Medium Bans Author After Article on Role of Public School Culture and Psychology in Mass Shootings

Medium has joined the Big Tech censorship movement.

Published

on

The popular Twitter user Kantbot 20k was banned from online publishing platform Medium for unexplained reasons after he wrote an article discussing how the culture of public schooling and psychology may create an environment conducive of school shootings.

Kantbot 20k had written dozens of articles for Medium over a two year period before his article, “Guns Don’t Kill People, Psychologists Do” went viral on social media and racked up thousands of views on the website. The article featured a nuanced take on school shootings, and attempted to transcend the typical narrative of anti-Second Amendment versus pro-Second Amendment rhetoric.

The 3,000-word article explored the early days of psychology and compared it to the ramblings of various psychopaths who have committed school shootings, and came to the conclusion that society should examine the role society plays in creating them.

This is the paranoid system which today we entrust with rescuing at-risk young boys. This is what stands between us and more school shootings. Never mind the fact that as this system has grown, it has only led to a rise in mass shootings. Maybe the real cause of such cases is not guns, or a failure to identify and treat students, maybe the cause is these same students, following a protracted process of isolation and attempted psychological modification, learning to play the part the system has assigned to them, that of the security threat.

After publishing the article, the author, who says he models his work after philosophers who used “irony to challenge the false prejudices and historicism of liberalism,” was banned by Medium for “hateful text, images, or other content in (his) username, profile, or bio.”

His bio merely contained a quote, and a picture of Pepe the Frog dressed as a philosopher.

Kantbot believes he has fallen victim to political censorship at the hands of a Big Tech platform.

Speaking to Big League Politics, he said he does “think its politically motivated, these companies are after narrative monopoly,” and added that these platforms “Use circular reporting to purge those who undermine their narrative authority.”

He described it as “Journos reporting on other journos to create a locked circle of dishonest interpretation that serves as a false consensus,” and called it “Unprincipled hermeneutics.”

Kantbot also insisted that none of the dozens of articles he’s written since joining the publishing platform in 2017 have been hateful in nature, and that if the website had a policy prohibiting Pepe the Frog, he would have gladly changed it if given a warning.

He attempted to reply to the email notifying him of his ban in an attempt to appeal the decision, and has not received a response.

Medium’s decision is, according to Kantbot, preventing discussion over one of the major issues of our day: school shootings.

He described his article as “A call to draw attention to the fact that no one seems to care why school shootings actually happen,” and added that “People want to treat the symptom with gun control whereas the real problem may in fact be in our public school culture itself.”

While Kantbot 20k has been purged from Medium, his Twitter account remains active.

Facebook Runs Electoral Interference to Stop Surging Congressional Candidate Laura Loomer

Facebook’s discriminatory practices against Loomer may be illegal.

Published

Congressional candidate Laura Loomer has dominated fundraising numbers and is crushing the polls, but Big Tech is intervening in an attempt to halt her campaign’s momentum.

Loomer announced on free speech platform Gab that Facebook is banning her campaign ads in what could be considered a form of electoral interference.

“This newest ban goes beyond just a ban of the Laura Loomer For Congress Facebook Page (which is required to run ads). My campaign was told yesterday that if a PAC attempted to advertise to promote my campaign, their ads would be taken down. Facebook said their new policy is that nothing about Laura Loomer is permitted on Facebook and for the duration of the election cycle, my campaign will not get access to run any of our own ads,” Loomer wrote.

“People will be banned for simply typing my name “Laura Loomer”. We have received several reports today from supporters who said their pages were suspended because the posted my donation link and my ads!” she added.

Loomer said in a statement provided to different media outlets that this should be considered criminal electoral interference because her primary competitor, incumbent Democrat Lois Frankel, is allowed to publish ads on Facebook’s vast monopoly platform.

“I’m the only federal candidate in the nation banned from advertising on Facebook. My competitor, Lois Frankel is running ads on Facebook to reach voters, and my campaign is shut out. This is illegal election interference,” Loomer said.

“If the idea of banning Lois Frankel from advertising on Facebook outrages you, you should be equally outraged over the fact that my campaign is universally de-platformed and is being denied equal access to run ads on Facebook,” she added.

Loomer is currently suing Facebook and other tech giants due to her arbitrary removal from the platform, as Big League Politics has reported:

According to Allum Bokhari of Breitbart, Facebook has demanded a federal judge in Miami to immediately dismiss a defamation lawsuit that Laura Loomer brought against them.

Facebook put forward the argument that its decision to ban her as a “dangerous individual” does not fall under the grounds of defamation.

Facebook filed a motion to dismiss where it argued that “calling someone ‘dangerous’— or saying that she ‘promoted or ‘engaged’ in ‘hate’— is a protected statement of opinion.”

Facebook called attention to how other platforms have banned her and stated that “this is clearly an issue where, at a minimum, reasonable minds can disagree.”

Additionally, the motion cited Loomer’s appearances with Gavin McInnes, another individual that Facebook labeled as “dangerous”, as a justification for deplatforming her.

Breitbart News exclusively revealed a year ago that Facebook takes into account off-site behavior to determine whether certain users get deplatformed.

Bokhari noted that Facebook engages in the monitoring of “the on-platform and off-platform activities of prominent political individuals in an internal file called ‘Hate Agent policy review’.”

Loomer aims to become the next U.S. Representative in Florida’s 21st Congressional district in spite of the Big Tech conspiracy gunning for her.
