So-Called “Principled Conservatives” FINALLY Upset at Twitter Censorship

Published

on

The “Civility First conservative” crowd on Twitter finally dropped their argument that private companies like the Silicon Valley tech giant should be able to ban users at will – but only because one of their friends caught the axe.

Fox Commentator and right wing pundit Jesse Kelly was permanently suspended from the app Sunday for no apparent reason, adding to a long list that began with Milo Yiannopoulous in 2015, and has grown to include such figures as Alex Jones, Roger Stone and Laura Loomer.

But the “TruCon” crowd did not care about Jones, Stone or Loomer. They were “fringe,” according to the “principled conservative” crowd, which apparently believes that anyone who does not think or act exactly like them should be crushed by the thought police. How principled. And conservative.

The sentiment was summed up well by the vice president of Lone Conservative, a neoconservative opinion outlet for college students.

“I mean honestly, Jesse is no Alex Jones or Laura Loomer. This is a regular Fox News guest and Federalist contributor smh,” he said.

In other words, “he thinks like me – how could they ban him?”

All of a sudden, the crowd of mostly #NeverTrump clowns came out in full force to support Kelly. The Daily Wire even wrote a column about it, though some of their staff equivocated after the banning of Loomer last week.

Many actual conservatives – those who support freedom of speech absolutely, regardless of the message, who is delivering it or whether the Palo Alto Mafia has the “right” to ban people – noticed this trend.

“Conservabros who defended tech censorship see the world differently now that Jesse Kelly has been suspended,” said author, filmmaker and lawyer Mike Cernovich.

“Funny how the ‘principled Conservatives’ who gave Twitter a pass for dumping Alex Jones (some of them piled on!) flipped out Sunday after Jesse Kelly was dumped,” said commentator Yossi Gestetner.

It is almost as though “principled conservatism” isn’t so principled after all.

Gab Temporarily Down as Administrators Investigate Criminal Security Breach

Coordinated hackers are attacking Gab.

The administrators of free speech platform Gab temporarily disabled their platform on Monday, in response to what they’re calling a security breach.

Attracting millions of users after the decline of free speech competitor Parler, Gab has quickly become the target of the internet establishment for serving as the global internet’s de facto free speech forum. Four banks simultaneously closed Gab banks accounts last week, acting in coordination in an all-of-society deplatforming attempt.

A message purportedly from a hacker of sorts appeared on Gab founder Andrew Torba’s account, with the malicious actor making a series of claims about compromising Gab’s security systems. The hacker claims to have accessed verification photos that Gab users have submitted to the platform, potentially accessing the driver’s licenses of Gab users. This likely represents a criminal offense.

Torba earlier referenced “demon hackers” as responsible for the coordinated attack on Gab. As a new platform representing a social media alternative to millions discriminated against by Big Tech, it’s likely that bad actors will continue to attempt to compromise Gab’s systems. It may even be possible that the hackers in question are linked to western governments, which would represent an unprecedented attack on free speech by the power of the state.

Gab is refusing to cave to criminal elements, vowing to return the platform to the internet in its full capacity. Hackers are allegedly demanding a ransom in return for relenting the assault on Gab, in a development that potentially makes them liable to extortion charges.

Big League Politics has requested comment from Gab on the matter and is monitoring the situation.
