Hawley is particularly concerned with the “blacklist” that is being kept by Twitter. The social media giant has frequently denied that they are choking conservative voices off of their platform, even as conservatives are deplatformed, shadowbanned, and otherwise discriminated against by the Silicon Valley monolith.

“One such screenshot indicates that Twitter employs tools allowing it to append “Search Blacklist,” “Trends Blacklist,” “Bounced,” and “ReadOnly” flags to user accounts. Given your insistence in testimony to Congress that Twitter does not engage in politically biased “shadowbanning” and the public interest in Twitter’s moderation practices, it is notable that Twitter reportedly suspended user accounts sharing screenshots of this panel,” Hawley wrote in his letter.

He is demanding that Dorsey and Twitter executives “define the terms “Search Blacklist,” “Trends Blacklist,” “Bounced,” and “ReadOnly.” Please also explain, for each term, whether such flags on user accounts affect the visibility of tweets within users’ timelines.”

“Please explain the rules that Twitter uses to implement such flags on user accounts and tweets and the process by which Twitter ensures that such implementation is not conducted in a politically biased manner. As you no doubt recall, you have testified to Congress that “We believe strongly in being impartial, and we strive to enforce our rules impartially. We do not shadowban anyone based on political ideology.” This statement indicates that your use of these internal systems is governed by “rules” rather than mere discretion,” Hawley added.

Big League Politics has reported on Hawley’s efforts to break up the Big Tech monopoly by amending the problematic Section 230 of the Communcations Decency Act:

CNS News reported that Missouri Senator Josh Hawley sent Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey a letter on May 27, 2020 taking the company to task for “fact-checking” President Trump’s about mail-in ballots.

In a number of Tweets he made on May 27, Dorsey sustained that Trump’s comments regarding mail-ballots being filled with fraud “may mislead people into thinking they don’t need to register to get a ballot (only registered voters receive ballots),” Dorsey Tweeted. We’re updating the link on @realDonaldTrump’s tweet to make this more clear,” Dorsey continued.

Hawley noted that on Tuesday, “for the first time ever, Twitter branded the President’s tweets with a ‘fact check’ designed to encourage readers to believe that the President’s political speech was inaccurate.”

Hawley commented, “Twitter’s decision to editorialize regarding the content of political speech raises questions about why Twitter should continue receiving special status and special immunity from publisher liability under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.”

According to Section 230, companies that distribute user content are not treated as a publisher, like outlets such as New York Times or the Washington Post.

Hawley also called attention to the fact that Twitter failed to respond to the “outright lies and propaganda by the Chinese Communist Party,” which used social media to scapegoat American soldiers for starting the Wuhan virus pandemic.

Hawley is wanting Twitter to explain why companies which behave like publishers — namely editing President Trump’s tweets in the aforementioned case — should not receive publisher treatments.

Twitter has been embarrassed with their hacking scandal, and this could be an opportunity to finally hold the company accountable for their disreputable business practices.

Twitter Suspends Election Whistleblower After Giving Riveting Testimony in Arizona about Mathematical Fraud

This isn’t the first time.

Published

on

Throughout the day in Arizona, many credible whistleblowers have stepped forward to give testimony about the multitude of irregularities that occurred during the election.

One expert witness, Bobby Fiton, attested to mathematical fraud during the election that casts serious doubt on the vote totals as they are currently reported. He made a particularly powerful statement with regards to Gov. Doug Ducey, who certified the dubious vote while whistleblowers were going on the record.

“If I was an executive at a publicly-traded company, I would never sign that because I risk jailtime and having all my money taken from me in lawsuits,” he said.

“I would have never, ever certified. I would have rather resigned than certify those results… I believe they’re fraudulent based on the data,” Fiton continued.

“And my sister asked me a simple question this morning, she goes: ‘How sure are you?’ And my sister’s a pretty stubborn person like me, and I said: ‘I’d be willing to put my life on it.’ I’m that sure about the analysis assuming that the data that I got from the state and everything else was accurate,” he added.

A clip of Fiton’s testimony can be seen here:

Immediately after he issued his testimony, Fiton was banned on Twitter to prevent his analysis from being widely understood by the masses:

Twitter had previously done this to the personal account of state senator Doug Mastriano to stop his anti-fraud efforts from gaining momentum immediately after similar hearings were held in Pennsylvania last week.

“We move heaven and earth with American dollars to secure elections in Iraq and Afghanistan and elsewhere. We can’t do it in our own state?” Mastriano said at the hearing. “There’s people in Pennsylvania not interested in safe, secure elections.”

Big League Politics has reported on Twitter’s assault on conservatives, which includes a recent hire of an extreme far-left activist as head of conversational safety:

The media company Protocol, a sister site of Politico, recently published an article about Twitter’s new “head of product for conversational safety,” Christine Su. It claims that Su, a “young, queer Asian-American businesswoman,” is revolutionizing what “user safety” on social media means.

Twitter hired Su around six months ago to be in charge of “what might be the most difficult task on Twitter,” despite having no apparent experience in politics, programming, and media relations. But Twitter seems to like her for her “creative” and “somewhat radical new ideas” about user safety.

“As a queer woman of color who is an Asian American in tech in rural America, that experience is a very intersectional one. I’ve had plenty of experiences moving through spaces where I wanted more safety,” Su said.

Protocol writes that Su’s vision incorporates “transformative and procedural justice.” Transformative justice ostensibly refers to a non-retributive form of repairing harm done to someone and preventing it from happening again; procedural justice to enacting a set of rules that “make harm rarer in the first place.”

This all sounds nice and dandy—but beware. So-called transformative and procedural justice will not benefit you, but will crush you. Anything that’s perceived as “harmful” against “women and people from marginalized groups” can and will be used to censor you. Christine Su may reassuringly claim that “the point is not to make the entire world a safe space,” but she’s open about the fact that she will help give the Coalition of the Fringes more control over what people are allowed to do and say on Twitter.

Big Tech has emerged as an existential threat to the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. If they succeed in validating Biden’s electoral fraud, it will mean an end to America and a death sentence for Western Civilization.
