The former editor-in-chief of Brietbart London was banned from Facebook Tuesday, making him the second high-profile conservative casualty of tech censorship in as many days.

“What a thing to wake up to. My personal Facebook profile has been deleted, with no warning or explanation. I can no longer administer my fan page, with over 150,000 likes,” Raheem Kassam announced on Twitter.

To some, Kassam is a controversial right-wing figure. He is not an extremist as the far left, especially in the ever-more-totalitarian Mother England, would have ordinary people believe.

“While suppression of conservative thought is nothing new, it seems Facebook are moving into more mainstream territory now, considering I am a multiple bestselling author, and a main stage speaker at CPAC,” Kassam told Big League Politics. 

The Conservative Political Action Conference will take place in Washington, D.C., this weekend.

“This means no one is now off limits from the heavy hand of social media giant censorship,” Kassam continued.

Kassam noted that Facebook has just hired Sir Nick Clegg, leftist and former U.K. deputy prime minister, as its head of global policy and communications.

“Clegg, 51, will join Facebook as it struggles to cope with mounting political pressure over issues including fake news, data protection and the threat of government regulation,” according to The Guardian. 

Right-wing British free speech activist Tommy Robinson was also removed from Facebook and Facebook-owned Instagram Tuesday.

Twitter Temporarily Suspends Marjorie Taylor Greene for, You Guessed It, “Election Misinformation”

This is the new normal.

Published

Twitter has temporarily suspended Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene for numerous violations of their “civic integrity policy,” according to a spokesman who confirmed the news to CNN.

Twitter also cited violations of their civic integrity policy to justify banning President Donald Trump earlier this month.

Unfortunately, to borrow a phrase from the COVID-19 pandemic, this will be the new normal. No longer is Twitter content with simply labeling tweets they don’t like with disclaimers. The Big Tech giant’s ban of the president has opened a Pandora’s box, and you don’t even need to be conservative to recognize this.

Big League Politics has covered Rep. Greene closely since her election to the US House. She effectively ran unopposed, defeating a Democratic challenger named Kevin Van Ausdal who withdrew his candidacy approximately a month-and-a-half before the election.

Most recently Greene announced on Wednesday that she planned to introduce articles of impeachment against Joe Biden on his first full day in the Oval Office.

On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden,” she tweeted. “75 million Americans are fed up with inaction. It’s time to take a stand. I’m proud to be the voice of Republican voters who have been ignored.

The Democratic Party still controls the House of Representatives, so impeachment articles against Biden will go nowhere. However, as Big League Politics‘ Richard Moorhead has said, “the Democratic Party has been unable to resist turning the presidential impeachment process into a wholly partisan, reactionary affair, and may reap the whirlwinds of their decision if Republicans willing to hold the establishment politician accountable gain majorities in the House and the Senate.
