New York U.S. Congressional Candidate Andrew McCarthy Urges People to Get on Gab
U.S. Congressional candidate Andrew McCarthy of New York appeared on Big League Politics where he talked up Gab, the pro-free speech social media platform.
“I’m really proud of what [Andrew Torba] has done over at Gab… You need to look into what’s going on over there because they have such a resilient network on the logistical side of things and the hardware side of things,” said McCarthy, who is an Air Force veteran and former military intelligence analyst running for Congress in the seat of the retiring pro-impeachment RINO, John Katko.
McCarthy explained that Gab’s sidestepping of Big Tech’s infrastructure is what makes it such a promising platform for the protection of free speech in a digital age that is growing more Orwellian with each passing day.
“You’re going to continue to see more [alternatives] because…Twitter is probably going to be on its way out for conservatives,” he said, referencing their capricious ban of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).
“It’s not complicated. They just lie to you about why they get you off these platforms, and that’s obviously not free speech. Like the old libertarian adage was like, ‘If you don’t like it, why don’t you go build your own?’ Well, they did, so go to Gab, go to these other options, and you can actually have a conversation like this,” McCarthy said.
Big League Politics has reported on Twitter ramping up its censorship regime since the appointment of a left-wing, anti-American foreigner as new CEO:
“Just one day after Parag Agrawal was named CEO of Twitter, the monopoly social media platform is instituting sweeping new content restrictions.
Twitter is banning all “private media” from being shared on the platform without consent. This policy is being sold as a way to protect the privacy of its users, but knowing how the tech giants operate, it will likely be used to protect left-wing scum and not apply to right-wing dissidents.
“There are growing concerns about the misuse of media and information that is not available elsewhere online as a tool to harass, intimidate, and reveal the identities of individuals. Sharing personal media, such as images or videos, can potentially violate a person’s privacy, and may lead to emotional or physical harm,” Twitter wrote in their announcement of their new policy.
“The misuse of private media can affect everyone, but can have a disproportionate effect on women, activists, dissidents, and members of minority communities. When we receive a report that a Tweet contains unauthorized private media, we will now take action in line with our range of enforcement options,” they added.
The new policy makes it clear that publishing private information is banned, including home addresses, government IDs, social security numbers, personal phone numbers and emails, bank account information, medical records, and now pictures of non-public individuals without their consent.
“Feeling safe on Twitter is different for everyone, and our teams are constantly working to understand and address these needs. We know our work will never be done, and we will continue to invest in making our product and policies more robust and transparent to continue to earn the trust of the people using our service,” the tech monolith wrote.
On Monday, it was announced that Agrawal would be succeeding long-time CEO Jack Dorsey in his position. It should come as no surprise that Agrawal is a far-left zealot who has no respect for the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution…
In a Nov. 2020 interview with Technology Review, Agrawal said that Twitter should not be “bound by the First Amendment,” and that the platform should “focus less” on promoting free speech and an open discussion now that “times have changed.”
“As we learn through time, our understanding of truth also evolves. We attempt to not adjudicate truth, we focus on potential for harm. And when we say we lean on credible sources, we also lean on all the conversation on the platform that also gets to talk about these credible sources and points out potential gaps as a result of which the credible sources also evolve their thinking or what they talk about,” Agrawal said.
“Our role is to serve a healthy public conversation and our moves are reflective of things that we believe lead to a healthier public conversation. The kinds of things that we do about this is, focus less on thinking about free speech, but thinking about how the times have changed. One of the changes today that we see is speech is easy on the internet. Most people can speak. Where our role is particularly emphasized is who can be heard,” he added.“
