Reason Magazine Tries to Dunk on GOP Lawmaker, Steps On A Rake

Published

on

Monday, a libertarian magazine published a story claiming that House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) “doesn’t understand how Twitter works.”

“House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) accused Twitter last week of censoring content from Fox News host Laura Ingraham,” said Reason Magazine. “It turns out that McCarthy’s own account settings were to blame.”

“As multiple users pointed out, Twitter was not in fact censoring Ingraham. McCarthy simply had to change his settings to allow ‘sensitive content,'” Reason said.

Of course, McCarthy’s settings were to blame for the way the tweet was displayed, but Twitter was ultimately responsible for flagging the tweet as “sensitive content” in the first place, a small nuance that apparently escaped the esteemed academics at Reason. 

Flagging any content as “sensitive” is a textbook form of censorship. It is a barrier between the creator of content and the consumer of content that directly obstructs freedom of expression.

The “libertarians” at Reason – supposedly proponents of absolute freedom – would rather support fascist corporate censorship in order to keep the federal government from regulating social media than actually supporting freedom of expression.

They either cannot, or simply refuse, to see the forest between the trees.

Reason also completely ignored the fact that Twitter has been caught several times admitting to censorship, particularly of conservative viewpoints.

Big League Politics reported Sunday:

A “nonbinary neurodivergent queer” (we’re going with he/him) Software Engineer at Twitter admitted on his personal account that he uses internal company mechanisms to try to censor “hate speech” that he finds personally offensive.

“Use in-app reporting mechanism, hear back ‘no violation’, escalate case internally,” he wrote in October.

The employee often expressed chagrin at what he views as a lack of regulation of speech on the app, and even called for the complete deplatforming of “Nazis,” which is leftist code for “anyone who disagrees with me:”

Big League Politics contributor Laura Loomer, who has 200,000 followers and is both Jewish and most certainly not a Nazi, was deverified in Twitter’s purge of blue check marks last November.

The Tweets are quite revealing. They provide a glimpse into how Twitter operates behind the scenes, showing that censorship is not just algorithmic, but part of the leftist culture at the company. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey admitted that Twitter “leans left” in an interview with CNN’s Brian Stelter Saturday.

Twitter employees have admitted on hidden camera that the company “shadow bans” those whom they feel have inappropriate views. Those people always seem to be politically right-of-center.

By comparison, leftist users of the micro-blogging site are allowed far more latitude. Sarah Jeong, for example, the virulently anti-white racist editor who was just hired by the New York Times, is allowed a platform without repercussions.

It looks like Reason is the party that is guilty of not “understanding how Twitter works.”

Lawsuit: Twitter Kept Child Porn on Platform Because It Does Not Violate Their Terms of Service

Published

on

A lawsuit is alleging that the social media giant Twitter did not remove child pornography from their platform because the tech monopoly claims it does not violate their terms of service.

The lawsuit is accusing Twitter of profiting from child pornography that was shared on their platform. It was filed by the victim and her mother in federal court in the Northern District of California on Wednesday. 

The victim, who is now 17, reportedly was targeted by sex traffickers at the age of 13 over Snapchat who then blackmailed him into sending lewd photographs. They then coerced him into performing sex acts with another minor on video, and copies were eventually leaked into child pornography rings.

The videos were allegedly displayed on Twitter, who was alerted to the child sex videos at least three times. According to the suit, Twitter refused to do anything to remove the child sex videos until a federal law enforcement official intervened.

Twitter’s alleged response was that the social media provider “didn’t find a violation of our policies” with the content:

 

Big League Politics has reported on how Twitter altered their terms of service to make their social media platform more hospitable to pedophiles:

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.

It seems that Big Tech is deliberately allowing social media platforms to permit child porn, as the LGBT agenda pushes to normalize child sexuality and pedophilia. America is set to become Sodom and Gomorrah on steroids if globalism cannot be thwarted.
