Twitter has ended its relationship with the scandal-ridden Southern Poverty Law Center, according to reports that emerged Monday.
The platform had previously featured the legal organization as a member of its Trust and Safety Council, assisting to help combat “hateful conduct and harassment.” While it’s almost certain that the organization’s role with Twitter consisted of demanding conservative speech be censored and deleted, it appears the SPLC no longer has an in with the powerful social media platform.
The SPLC has increasingly come under fire, not only from the conservative demographic which it’s gained notoriety for baselessly defaming for years, but from moderates and progressives concerned with a pattern of unscrupulous behavior within the Alabama-based organization. The organization’s President and founder both resigned from their roles, with the latter having been accused of serially sexually harassing female staffers.
Other reports painted a picture of an organization that defrauded donors, stashed tens of millions of dollars in overseas tax havens, and hosted a toxic work culture in which minority employees were routinely underpaid.
Although the SPLC no longer has a means to agitate for liberal censorship on Twitter, the group has always had a closer relationship with Facebook, that appears to be intact in spite of the organization’s scandals. A Facebook spokesperson had told The Daily Caller that the SPLC was one of the external organizations the social media behemoth worked with “to inform our hate speech policies.” If the relationship still exists, it could be reasonably said that the biggest social media platform’s hate speech policies are in fact dictated by a progressive hate group.
Google has also utilized the group’s services to censor and purge right-of-center content from YouTube. There’s been no word as to whether or not it intends to follow the lead of Twitter in dumping the political hate group.

Hungary Will Take Action Against Big Tech Shadowbanning of Christians, Conservatives, and Other Right-Wingers
Holding Big Tech accountable.
The government of Viktor Orban, prime minister of Hungary, has announced its commitment to take on Big Tech’s shadowbanning of Christians, conservatives, and other assorted right-wingers.
In a Facebook post shared Monday, Hungarian Minister of Justice Judit Varga said she believes that shadowbanning—the secret restriction of a social media user’s visibility—violates “fundamental democratic legal norms that form the basis of Western-type culture.”
Because of Big Tech’s “systematic abuses,” Varga said she convened a meeting of the Hungarian Digital Freedom Committee and will soon meet with the president of the Hungarian Competition Authority regarding “the possibility of sanctioning unfair commercial practices.”
Varga also claimed she has personally experienced shadowbanning and then linked to the following tweets from James O’Keefe and the O’Keefe-run Project Veritas:

"One strategy is to shadow ban so that you have ultimate control."
"It's going to ban, like, a way of talking."
"You just delete them, but the problem is there are hundreds of thousands of them, so you got to write algorithms that do it for you." pic.twitter.com/NQBsSziI2X

The Hungarian government, along with the Polish government, is considered one of the last in the Western world that’s committed to some form of social conservatism and resistance against neoliberal globalism. Big League Politics has thus closely followed Prime Minister Orban and Hungary over the past several months, reporting on Orban’s various confrontations with George Soros and news such as their proposed constitutional amendment to prevent gay couples from adopting children:
