Journalist Tim Pool debated with Twitter’s Legal, Policy and Trust & Safety Lead Vijaya Gadde, as well as Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on the Joe Rogan podcast Monday, and sparks flew in a segment posted to Twitter by The Polish Patriot.
“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 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 tht 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.”
That was an inescapable blow for Gadde.

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:
