Study: Twitter Bans 21 Conservatives for 1 Liberal

Published

on

It’s no doubt that Twitter has devolved into an establishment-friendly censored platform in which right-leaning political thought is censored. The social media website was originally devised by its creators as a genuine free speech platform- a vision that was thrown to the winds when it became clear that open exchange of information was politically inconvenient to progressives.

A new study makes clear the extent to which the platform has gone to nuke conservative political expression in the past few years, under the leadership of Jack Dorsey. Columbia University academic Richard Hanania sought to document every suspension of a high profile-Twitter user since January.

Hanania identified 22 banned users who he categorized as influencers on the platform. Out of the 22, 21 were identified as known supporters of Donald Trump for President.

Only 1 high-profile liberal was identified as being (temporarily) banned- Rose McGowan. McGowan had been suspended after leaking someone’s private phone number, a clear violation of Twitter rules.

Hanania’s study only focused on widely followed accounts, and it’s likely that Twitter’s conservative-to-liberal suspension ratio would be even higher if his study documenting the site’s comprehensive ban policy.

Hanania noted that progressive Twitter users have escaped consequences for violating the platform’s terms of service. Examples included the New York Times’ Sarah Jeong, who was a source of embarrassment for the Times when her long track record of anti-white racial hatred surfaced shortly after being hired.

Jeong was never suspended, even though Twitter banned Candace Owens for facetiously repeating Jeong’s statements word-for-word towards other groups.

Another leading progressive to evade a Twitter ban was Kathy Griffin, who incited the public to doxx the identities of the falsely accused Covington Catholic boys.

Twitter’s mass implementation of censorship, which is applied in a far more punitive manner towards less prominent users of the platform, represents a fundamental shift from the original vision professed by the company. In 2012 a company executive had described Twitter as the “free speech wing of the free speech party.

Such a description of the platform in 2019 is frankly laughable. But the evolution of the company’s approach towards political speech is a telling example of Silicon Valley’s mass institution of censorship after 2016- an approach adopted in the heat of a establishment panic following Donald Trump’s election.

In hindsight, the vision of a free speech platform was only possible in what’s called the “golden age of the internet,” a term used by critics of big tech to describe a period of time from 2000 to 2014 when major social media platforms were generally more accountable to users than major corporations and government.

The vision of a decentralized internet has largely disappeared over the past several years, replaced by a model in which progressives and liberals in the seats of power of major tech institutions feel they have no choice but to implement mass censorship to shield their political beliefs from criticism.

An example of this is the widespread shuttering of comment sections across online news outlets.

The transformation of the internet into a curated and patrolled zone poses major threats to democracy in America and in the West, broadly.

Should the attempt to shut down criticism of progressive ideals online fail, it’s possible that liberals could seek to shut down democracy itself as an alternative.

Facebook Protects Leftist Arsonists Starting Wildfires, Promotes Global Warming Propaganda

The censorship is increasing.

Tech giant Facebook is banning all chatter of potential arsonists causing wildfires that are rocking states like Oregon and California on the west coast.

Andy Stone, the veteran Democrat operative who runs communications for Facebook, made the announcement in a Twitter post:

At the same time, Facebook is redirecting people to globalist propaganda about climate change. They are putting this into users’ news feeds.

While Facebook may want to dismiss the notion that the wildfires on the west coast were started by arsonists, the authorities are already apprehending suspects who are believed to have started fires.

Michael Jarrod Bakkela, 41, has been hit with two charges for arson, 14 counts of reckless endangering, and 15 counts of criminal mischief. Law enforcement believe that Bakkela’s blaze caused “significant damage.”

“There are numerous homes, many of which are burnt completely, some are just heavily damaged, that are part of the 15 counts of criminal mischief,” Jackson County Sheriff’s Office public information officer Mike Moran told ABC News.

Similar to Facebook, the deep state is covering for the behavior of the leftist anarchists as well.

“FBI Portland and local law enforcement agencies have been receiving reports that extremists are responsible for setting wildfires in Oregon. With our state and local partners, the FBI has investigated several such reports and found them to be untrue. Conspiracy theories and misinformation take valuable resources away from local fire and police agencies working around the clock to bring these fires under control. Please help our entire community by only sharing validated information from official sources,” the FBI said in a statement.

Big League Politics reported last week about another far-left extremist who has been charged with setting fires:

A man with a lengthy history of left-wing political activism and a several misdemeanor convictions was arrested for allegedly setting a fire on a Washington highway as devastating wildfires burn throughout the western United States in Oregon, Washington and California.

Jeffrey Acord is a longtime Black Lives Matter activist and rioter who first was criminally charged with riot offenses during a 2014 Seattle protest, in which BLM activists reacted to the decision not to pursue criminal charges against Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson. Accord was arrested and charged with concealed carry violations at that event.

The Pullayup, Washington Police department claims to have caught Acord in the act of setting a fire in the median of Highway 167 in the state. He’s being charged with reckless burning in the second degree, a gross misdemeanor punishable by up to 364 days in jail.

In a shocking twist, Acord livestreamed his own arrest. He argued that he merely called police to report the fire, denying that he had anything to do with the fire’s origin, before police arrested him.

It is time for the organized Left to be treated like the associated forces of terrorism that they are and dealt with swiftly.
