A major technology platform known for its censorship of conservatives is now considering ways to censor President Donald J. Trump, according to one of its executives.
“One of the things we’re working really closely on with our product and engineering folks is, ‘How can we label that?'” said Vijaya Gadde, Twitter’s global lead for legal, policy, trust, and safety.
She was responding to a question about whether Trump is immune from Twitter’s fascistic censorship rules, which mostly lead to right-wingers being de-platformed for Terms of Service violations. Gadde was conducting an on-stage interview with Amazon-owned blog The Washington Post, which recently spiked allegations of sexual assault against the Democrat Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, Justin Fairfax.
“How can we put some context around it so people are aware that that content is actually a violation of our rules and it is serving a particular purpose in remaining on the platform,” Gadde said.
Twitter’s perceived bias against conservatives has been well-documented.
Recently, Gadde appeared on the “Joe Rogan Experience” with CEO Jack Dorsey and journalist Tim Pool to discuss the allegations that the company is shutting down right wingers.
Pool easily dismantled Gadde’s denials of political censorship.
Big League Politics reported:
“You have an argument between two people, and you have a rule that enforces only one side of the ideology, and you’ve banned only one of those people,” Pool told Gadde.
The ideology in question was transgenderism. Twitter recently banned “misgendering” in its terms of service. Conservatives who point out the biological fact that men are men and women are women can now be booted from the platform, which is what happened to a woman whose account was banned.
“We have a rule that attempts to address what we have perceived to be instances of abuse or harassment,” Gadde said. “What I’m trying to say is not that you can’t have those viewpoints. If you’re taking those viewpoints and you’re targeting them at a specific person in a way that reflects your intent to abuse or harass them – ”
Rogan interrupted to ask specifically whether it was permissible on Twitter to say that a woman is biologically female.
“She responded with ‘men aren’t women, though,’” Pool said, referring to a woman who was banned from Twitter for arguing the biological basis of sex. “And that was her first – in the series of events that was what got her the suspension and the warning.”
Gadde said that instance was a first strike against the user, to which Pool asked why that would be a strike in the first place.
“Again – it’s like the context of the – I don’t, I don’t have all the Tweets in front of me. There were like 10 or 12 Tweets going back and forth and my understanding is that in the context of all of those she was misgendering a particular person,” Gadde said, faltering.
Pool fired back.
“So you’re having an individual who is debating a high-profile individual in her community, and she’s expressing her ideology versus hers, and you have opted to ban one of those ideologies.”

FBI Arrests Hacker Connected to Katie Hill’s Campaign for Taking Down Primary Opponents’ Websites
This is real election interference.
The FBI has arrested a California man connected to former Congresswoman Katie Hill for taking down the websites of two of her campaign opponents in 2018.
Arthur Dam was arrested Friday on charges of hacking into the websites of two Democrats who opposed Hill in the 2018 Democratic Primary for California’s 25th District. According to a criminal complaint regarding the arrest, Dam orchestrated a cyber attack on websites of two of Hill’s primary opponents, Jess Phoenix and Bryan Caforio. Both of their websites were disabled during a crucial moment of the primary, which Hill went on to win.
It was suspected during the primary that Hill was connected to the campaign website hacks, considering her own website was still intact. Dam’s connections to the former member of Congress- who was forced to resign from office in 2019 in light of a sex scandal surrounding her intimate affairs with a congressional staffer- appear to make that a likely possibility.
Dam is married to Hill’s former campaign fundraiser and district director in Congress, Kelsey O’Hara. In campaign finance records, Hill lists an in-kind campaign contribution for “graphic design and website security consultation.”
Some coincidences are merely just that. But it’s extremely hard to ignore Kate Hill’s “website security consultant” getting arrested for hacking into the campaign websites of her congressional primary opponents.
Hill has reinvented herself after her resignation from Congress as a result of the sex scandal, seemingly viewing herself as a victim.
Sexual involvement with subordinate employees is arguably a severe lapse of ethical judgement in any workplace. Perhaps one could forgive such poor decision-making, even if it’s made by a Member of Congress obligated to a higher standard.
But the lasting hacking arrest of Hill’s campaign security consultant make it likely that the former Democrat Congresswoman has more to answer for her own personal lapses in judgement.
