Twitter banned and later reinstated David Horowitz’s account today after prominent conservatives, including Donald Trump Jr., slammed the big tech platform for its apparent censorship.
With no explanation, Twitter banned and reinstated the account of acclaimed conservative author and intellectual David Horowitz on Tuesday. He was banned at roughly 6 p.m., and then restored by 7:30 p.m.
Trump Jr. declared that this move meant that “@Jack & @Twitter aren’t even attempting to hide their hatred for conservatives anymore,” and rhetorically asked for the identity of the last high-profile leftist banned by social media.

Big League Politics was one of the first conservative media outlets to report the high profile ban earlier today.
David Horowitz, the 80-year-old conservative writer and founder of the Dave Horrowitz Freedom Center, was banned from Twitter this evening with no explanation from the big tech platform.
Twitter has been in the midst of a purge over the past 24 hours, banning multiple parody accounts and an account that chronicled instances of violence against supporters of President Donald J. Trump last night.
Tonight they continued their censorship spree by banning Horowitz, who is widely respected as an intellectual on both sides of the aisle.
Horowitz is a conservative writer and commentator who has written dozens of books, including “Dark Agenda: The War to Destroy Christian America”, “Progressive Racism”, and “The Big Agenda: President Trump’s Plan to Save America”.
While Horowitz’s account was restored, it appears his Twitter follower count was not. Horowitz went from over 60,000 followers to less than 1,000. It is not known if Twitter will restore these followers through the rest of the night.

Unlikely Ally: Russian Foreign Minister Calls Out Big Tech Shenanigans
Nationalists may find allies in strange places.
Prior to the installation of Joe Biden as U.S. president, Big Tech went on a censorship spree against former President Donald Trump and his supporters. Such corporate activism against Trump has evoked a strong international response from foreign leaders fearful of the American corporate sector’s power.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov recently declared that Big Tech’s actions represent egregious violations of American constitutional law.
“Recent events, including those in the United States, [pertain] to a situation when half a dozen people who have created their technological empires do not even want to know what rights they have in their countries. They themselves define their rights on the basis of so-called corporate norms and they don’t care a bit about the constitutions of their nations. We have clearly seen this in the United States, and this, of course, causes serious concern”, Lavrov said to reporters on January 11, 2021.
Lavrov declared that Big Tech’s behavior “comes from evil”. He criticized American leaders for failing to provide free access to information on the Internet.
The Russian foreign minister’s comments were in response to Twitter’s decision to permanently ban Donald Trump’s personal account earlier in January. The social media platform blamed the president for inciting an “insurrection” after a small group of his supporters stormed the Capitol on January 6.
Facebook and Instagram followed in Twitter’s footsteps, although the media platforms are currently reviewing if they’ll let Trump re-access his accounts.
It seems some of the most ardent opponents of America’s woke regime tend to come from abroad. America can no longer claim that it’s exceptional when both its private and public sector have no commitment to respecting its founding principles.
The Right needs to regroup and build a proper nationalist infrastructure to combat the current political apparatus in front of us.
