You Cant Watch This Tech Censorship

“You Can’t Watch This” is a new film promises to chronicle the big tech purges of Alex Jones, Laura Loomer, Tommy Robinson, Gavin McInnes, and Paul Joseph Watson.

The movie, set to be released on May 15, will offer a behind-the-scenes perspective on the recent waves of censorship at the hands of big tech companies that has resulted in prominent conservatives being removed from the public sphere.

Responding to Big League Politics’ request for comment, British filmmaker George Llewellyn-John explains that he hopes to inform the world that social media is a vital part of modern life, and excluding members of the public from it represents a direct threat.

“People think it’s just social media, we still have this outdated view of it,” wrote Llewellyn-John. “In reality social media is where we live our lives, where we refine our views and hammer out important cultural issues.”

He added, “It’s the one person one vote principle. It doesn’t matter how educated you are or what your income is or what you do for a living – you get a vote. It should be the same for social media.”

Llewellyn-John hopes the video will help “mainstream conservatives” understand the impact of social media on their political goals, and convince those across the aisle they they may not be immune to the pitfalls of tech censorship.

“I hope people on the right, particularly the mainstream right, will realise how big a problem this is for them.” He also hopes “people on the left will realise this issue is going to start affecting them as well.”

“We have to stop viewing Free Speech as a one sided issue,” he added.

Llewellyn-John made clear that he does not politically align himself with some of the figures in the movie, but finds it important to tell their story because “if the First Amendment isn’t for everyone then it isn’t for anyone.”

The movie has been in production for some time, Llewellyn-John explains that “as things heated up” he rapidly pushed up his production schedule for the May 15 release.

“You Can’t Watch This” began production in January of this year, and includes critical moments of history including “Tommy Robinson making his last livestream on Facebook before he was banned,” and “Gavin McInnes wrestling with the prospect of starting from scratch.”

Llewellyn-John concluded by telling Big League Politics that the timing of the movie is “perfect” and that “for the people involved it’s never been more urgent.”

“You Can’t Watch This” will be released on May 15 exclusively on Vimeo.

Facebook Runs Electoral Interference to Stop Surging Congressional Candidate Laura Loomer

Facebook’s discriminatory practices against Loomer may be illegal.

Congressional candidate Laura Loomer has dominated fundraising numbers and is crushing the polls, but Big Tech is intervening in an attempt to halt her campaign’s momentum.

Loomer announced on free speech platform Gab that Facebook is banning her campaign ads in what could be considered a form of electoral interference.

“This newest ban goes beyond just a ban of the Laura Loomer For Congress Facebook Page (which is required to run ads). My campaign was told yesterday that if a PAC attempted to advertise to promote my campaign, their ads would be taken down. Facebook said their new policy is that nothing about Laura Loomer is permitted on Facebook and for the duration of the election cycle, my campaign will not get access to run any of our own ads,” Loomer wrote.

“People will be banned for simply typing my name “Laura Loomer”. We have received several reports today from supporters who said their pages were suspended because the posted my donation link and my ads!” she added.

Loomer said in a statement provided to different media outlets that this should be considered criminal electoral interference because her primary competitor, incumbent Democrat Lois Frankel, is allowed to publish ads on Facebook’s vast monopoly platform.

“I’m the only federal candidate in the nation banned from advertising on Facebook. My competitor, Lois Frankel is running ads on Facebook to reach voters, and my campaign is shut out. This is illegal election interference,” Loomer said.

“If the idea of banning Lois Frankel from advertising on Facebook outrages you, you should be equally outraged over the fact that my campaign is universally de-platformed and is being denied equal access to run ads on Facebook,” she added.

Loomer is currently suing Facebook and other tech giants due to her arbitrary removal from the platform, as Big League Politics has reported:

According to Allum Bokhari of Breitbart, Facebook has demanded a federal judge in Miami to immediately dismiss a defamation lawsuit that Laura Loomer brought against them.

Facebook put forward the argument that its decision to ban her as a “dangerous individual” does not fall under the grounds of defamation.

Facebook filed a motion to dismiss where it argued that “calling someone ‘dangerous’— or saying that she ‘promoted or ‘engaged’ in ‘hate’— is a protected statement of opinion.”

Facebook called attention to how other platforms have banned her and stated that “this is clearly an issue where, at a minimum, reasonable minds can disagree.”

Additionally, the motion cited Loomer’s appearances with Gavin McInnes, another individual that Facebook labeled as “dangerous”, as a justification for deplatforming her.

Breitbart News exclusively revealed a year ago that Facebook takes into account off-site behavior to determine whether certain users get deplatformed.

Bokhari noted that Facebook engages in the monitoring of “the on-platform and off-platform activities of prominent political individuals in an internal file called ‘Hate Agent policy review’.”

Loomer aims to become the next U.S. Representative in Florida’s 21st Congressional district in spite of the Big Tech conspiracy gunning for her.
