“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“People think it’s just social media, we still have this outdated view of it,” wrote Llewellyn-John.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.
Gab Temporarily Down as Administrators Investigate Criminal Security Breach
Coordinated hackers are attacking Gab.
The administrators of free speech platform Gab temporarily disabled their platform on Monday, in response to what they’re calling a security breach.
We took the site down to investigate a security breach.
Banks are banning us.
Hackers are attacking us.
Journalists are libeling us.
Real simple: Gab glorifies Jesus Christ and is fighting to protect free speech online for all people.

Attracting millions of users after the decline of free speech competitor Parler, Gab has quickly become the target of the internet establishment for serving as the global internet’s de facto free speech forum. Four banks simultaneously closed Gab banks accounts last week, acting in coordination in an all-of-society deplatforming attempt.
A message purportedly from a hacker of sorts appeared on Gab founder Andrew Torba’s account, with the malicious actor making a series of claims about compromising Gab’s security systems. The hacker claims to have accessed verification photos that Gab users have submitted to the platform, potentially accessing the driver’s licenses of Gab users. This likely represents a criminal offense.
Torba earlier referenced “demon hackers” as responsible for the coordinated attack on Gab. As a new platform representing a social media alternative to millions discriminated against by Big Tech, it’s likely that bad actors will continue to attempt to compromise Gab’s systems. It may even be possible that the hackers in question are linked to western governments, which would represent an unprecedented attack on free speech by the power of the state.

Gab is refusing to cave to criminal elements, vowing to return the platform to the internet in its full capacity. Hackers are allegedly demanding a ransom in return for relenting the assault on Gab, in a development that potentially makes them liable to extortion charges.
Gab is an American business run by law-abiding American citizens that can't get a business checking account, can't process credit and debit cards online, and can't access basic online services run by tech monopolies.
Where are our leaders? Where is the GOP?

Big League Politics has requested comment from Gab on the matter and is monitoring the situation.
