Twitter Censors New York Post Article about Hunter Biden’s Crony Business Deals with China
A day after censoring the New York Post for exposing Hunter Biden’s emails, Twitter has doubled down by censoring a newly published article that explains Hunter’s crony and possibly illicit business dealings with China.
“Twitter is censoring us — again,” announced Post editor Sohrab Ahmari in a tweet.
“This is what I — an editor at America’s oldest continuously published newspaper, founded by Alexander Hamilton — get when I try to post our follow-up story on Hunter’s financial shenanigans with the Chinese regime,” he added.
When Ahmari attempted to post the article, he received a “Tweet Not Sent” notice that read as follows: “Your Tweet could not be sent because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful. Visit our Help Center to learn more.”
The Post report details Hunter’s interactions with a powerful Chinese energy firm. The revelations in the article indicate that Hunter was receiving millions from Chinese interests because of his name. The Biden campaign is attempting to ignore the scandal while the Big Tech overlords attempt to keep the news from going viral.
“There is no need for comment on any so-called information provided by Rudy Giuliani,” Biden lawyer George Mesires said.
“He has been pushing widely discredited conspiracy theories about the Biden family, openly relying on actors tied to Russian intelligence. His record of dishonesty in these matters speaks for itself,” Mesires added.
Conservative lawmakers and pundits are shocked at the blatant electoral interference that Twitter and other social media providers are conducting on behalf of the Democrats:
Not just because of their blatant election interference to protect Biden, but to find out if they're censoring these NY Post stories at the behest of the Chinese Communist Party.

So #HunterBiden was in business with a now disappeared Chinese tycoon accused of bribing the President of Chad and the Foreign Minister of Uganda? Seems rather significant even though #TwitterCensorship won't let you RT today's article in the @nypost.

Censoring political speech is what you’d expect in countries like China, North Korea, or Iran — NOT America.
This should scare every single American who values free and open discourse. Do NOT let Big Tech silence YOU‼️#TwitterCensorship

Left-wing journalist Glenn Greenwald pointed out the ramifications that Big Tech’s Orwellian censorship policies will have on journalism:
Look carefully at what Twitter is saying to justify censoring the Biden story. If applied consistently, it’d mean that some of history’s most consequential journalism — the Pentagon Papers, WikiLeaks’ war logs, Snowden docs, Panama Papers, our Brazil Archive — would be banned. pic.twitter.com/pQziZr1qwT

Big League Politics reported yesterday on how Facebook is also censoring Hunter Biden news to run interference for the Democrats, showing how Big Tech entities are working in concert to manipulate next month’s election:
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) is calling for an investigation after a Facebook executive announced earlier today that the platform would be egregiously censoring a report detailing Hunter Biden’s leaked emails…
Hawley was responding to a shocking post from Facebook Communications Director Andy Stone, a veteran Democrat operative before being hired by the social media giant, who announced publicly that the report would be censored regardless of its accuracy…
The explosive report, which was initially published in the New York Post, detailed Hunter Biden’s drug-fueled cronyism. The emails showed how Hunter Biden introduced his father Joe, who was vice president at the time, to Ukrainian Burisma advisor Vadym Pozharskyi. This contradicts claims made by the Biden campaign that Joe and his troubled son never talked business while he was vice president.
“The seemingly selective nature of this public intervention suggests partiality on the part of Facebook,” Hawley wrote in a letter addressed to Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
“And your efforts to suppress the distribution of content revealing potentially unethical activity by a candidate for president raises a number of additional questions, to which I expect responses immediately,” he continued.
“Isn’t such a public intervention itself a reflection of Facebook’s assessment of a news report’s credibility?” Hawley asked.
“The New York Post previously reported that employees of the six largest Silicon Valley tech firms – including Facebook – have donated nearly $5 million to the Biden-Harris campaign, compared to just $239,000 to President Trump’s campaign. What steps has Facebook taken to ensure that your employees’ political preferences don’t influence decisions to suppress content?” Howley added.
The globalist establishment has been forced to show just how authoritarian and opposed to free speech they are in their mad rush to remove President Trump from office.
