Report: Twitter Deletes 10,000 Accounts for ‘Discouraging Voting’ At Behest of Democrats

Published

on

According to a Friday report, Twitter took it upon itself to jump into the middle of the midterm election process, banning 10,000 accounts that “discouraged people from voting.”

“We took action on relevant accounts and activity on Twitter,” a Twitter spokesman told Reuters, adding that the removals occurred in late September and early October.

According to the report, the accounts were “automated,” though Twitter did not clarify exactly which accounts were deleted. The effort was apparently at the behest of the Democratic party, which claimed that the accounts “wrongly appeared to be from Democrats.”

“Twitter removed more than 10,000 accounts, according to three sources familiar with the Democrats’ effort,” the report said. “The number is modest, considering that Twitter has previously deleted millions of accounts it determined were responsible for spreading misinformation in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.”

The leftists in Silicon Valley are now actively deciding what information is accurate, and allowing or disallowing that information to be shared based on their subjective reasoning. That is a recipe for disaster.

According to the report some of the Tweets “discouraged Democratic men from voting, saying that would drown out the voice of women, according to two of the sources familiar with the flagging operation.”

Such messages are not necessarily spam, considering the Democratic party has gone bonkers with identity politics. Just yesterday, a prominent Democrat called for straight, white males to be banned from voting completely. Based on their track record, it is completely within the realm of possibility that far-left crazies would seriously discourage certain demographics from voting.

Meanwhile, Twitter has suspended the accounts of prominent journalists who have exposed the misdeeds of Democrats, like Laura Loomer.

Loomer confronted Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) several times about documented accusations of domestic violence, causing him to drop in the polls. Her account was suspended through election day without explanation.

Big League Politics reported:

Laura Loomer has been suspended from Twitter for the last week of the 2018 midterm election.

“No. None at all,” Loomer said when asked if she was given a reason for the banishment. “This is absurd.”

Loomer’s suspension appears to last until November 7.

This is called “Censorship Trolling.”

The good news for those interested in fair elections is that several of the Silicon Valley giants, including Twitter, were hit with a Federal Election Commission complaint for election interference on Friday.

Until the feds reign in the power of the social media titans, stories like these will recur.

Banished Journalist Laura Loomer’s $1.5 Billion Lawsuit Against Tech Giants Will Be Heard in Court

Loomer will have her day in court.

Published

on

Banished journalist and Florida U.S. House candidate Laura Loomer’s lawsuit against Big Tech will be heard in the court of law following an order in the D.C. Circuit on Thursday.

Loomer is accusing tech giants such as Google, Apple, Facebook and Twitter of conspiring to suppress conservative voices on their platforms. The lawsuit is challenging these monolithic corporations for allegedly violating antitrust law as well as the 1st Amendment of the Constitution.

Her lawsuit had been previously tossed out by U.S. District Judge Trever N. McFadden, a Trump appointee to the bench, who stated that “while selective censorship of the kind alleged by the plaintiffs may be antithetical to the American tradition of freedom of speech, it is not actionable under the First Amendment unless perpetrated by a state actor.” However, Loomer was able to use a recent court ruling to resurrect her lawsuit despite the initial setback.

Loomer’s legal team, led by the right-wing political interest group Freedom Watch, used the precedent of Packingham v. North Carolina, a ruling which determined that it was unconstitutional to ban sex offenders from social media. The case essentially set the precedent that social media is a 1st Amendment right.

“Many of the principles set forth by the Supreme Court in Packingham lead to what appellants believe is the natural progression of the law to hold that social media companies are liable for First Amendment violations, given the progression of technology and its infiltration into the daily lives of nearly every single person,” Loomer’s team said in their final brief presented to the court.

Loomer points to Twitter banning her from the platform at the end of 2018 after she said that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) adheres to a religion in which “women are abused” and “forced to wear the hijab.” She was similarly banned from Instagram for her assertion that Islam is “a cancer on humanity,” and Facebook, which owns Instagram, quickly followed suit and banned her even though the offending post was not made on that platform.

Loomer still cannot get her accounts restored despite the fact that she is running for the U.S. House in Florida’s 21st Congressional District, which could be considered a form of electoral interference.

Through her legal fight against the tech giants, Loomer is forcing them to reveal that they are no longer neutral platforms:

The tech behemoth Facebook has admitted that it is a publisher while defending its arbitrary censorship of banished journalist Laura Loomer, according to court documents.

Facebook banned Loomer’s account from their platform during a purge of popular conservative voices that happened in May. Others targeted by the purge included Milo Yiannopoulos, Alex Jones and Paul Joseph Watson. Loomer is striking back with a lawsuit that is unearthing some interesting revelations about the social media monolith.

“Under well-established law, neither Facebook nor any other publisher can be liable for failing to publish someone else’s message,” Facebook’s attorneys wrote.

Facebook actually has the audacity to claim that their 1st Amendment rights are being violated by Loomer’s lawsuit, in a total contorting of reality. They have filed a motion to dismiss the case.

“She claims Facebook labeled her as a ‘dangerous’ person who promotes hate – yet, the First Amendment has long protected such statements because they are opinions that are not capable of being proven true or false,” Facebook’s attorneys claim in their dismissal motion.

Right now, Facebook is protected under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act from being held liable for the content published on their platform. This special exemption worked fine when the social network engaged in relative neutrality, but those days are no more as Big Tech is at war with conservative and pro-Trump voices.

Loomer hopes to have her ability to communicate fully restored and to make Big Tech pay for infringing on her basic rights.
