As my friend Cathy said when she sent this news: “All this BEFORE Inauguration Day. Just imagine what comes AFTER.”
But in a very big surprise, theEpoch Timesis reporting that the FAR Left ACLU has spoken out against the removal of President Trump’s own Twitter and Facebook pages.
Facebook Removing All Content That Mentions ‘Stop the Steal’ Ahead of Inauguration Day
Facebook announced on Monday it is removing all content that contains the phrase “stop the steal” ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s Inauguration Day on Jan. 20.
The company issued a statement saying it was removing content containing the phrase that was used by supporters of President Donald Trump to question the integrity of the 2020 general election. Trump supporters held multiple rallies across the country called “Stop the Steal” following the Nov. 3 election.
The social media company said that the move is an attempt to remove content that “could incite further violence during these next few weeks.” Content will be removed under the company’s Coordinating Harm policy.
“We’ve been allowing robust conversations related to the election outcome and that will continue,” Facebook officials Guy Rosen and Monika Bickert said in a statement.
“But with continued attempts to organize events against the outcome of the US presidential election that can lead to violence, and use of the term by those involved in Wednesday’s violence in DC, we’re taking this additional step in the lead up to the inauguration.”
LOL! I have been looking for an opportunity to use this tweet.
Remember! Obama’s idol Saul Alinsky taught that ridicule is the most powerful political weapon—use it every chance you get!
Meanwhile, this is big news!
The Leftists at the ACLU are concerned about the blanket removal of Trump from social media.
Frankly those ignorant-of-history punks running Facebook and Twitter don’t understand the consequences of attempting to drive political opponents underground, especially one with 70-80 million angry followers.
“We understand the desire to permanently suspend him now, but it should concern everyone when companies like Facebook and Twitter wield the unchecked power to remove people from platforms that have become indispensable for the speech of billions— especially when political realities make those decisions easier,” the ACLU statement read.
The Leftist Tech Giants and their Democrat Socialist/Commie enablers may well find out what the founding fathers were getting at when they designed the First Amendment to the Constitution:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
They knew that when people are silenced and their views forced underground that violence would soon follow.
Free speech is how we blow off steam!
However, the fools now running wild in Big Tech are too young and too stupid to know what history has told us repeatedly.
Twitter has permanently banned the account of the president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.
“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” said Twitter in a statement.
Twitter previously removed a video from the president that called on his supporters to peacefully disperse and respect law an order, which the president posted less than an hour after reports that D.C.’s Capitol Hill was in the process of being stormed.
The president reiterated his condemnation of violence the next day.
This comes after Facebook and Instagram along with other big tech platforms indefinitely suspended the president’s access, cutting off a key line of communication between the president and the citizens of this country.
For more than four years, Breitbart News has reported on the rapidly increasing, undemocratic power of Silicon Valley companies, and their growing determination to interfere in the political affairs of the United States and other countries.
Most patriots still on Twitter like me (I am a small fry there) are losing followers by the hundreds (me, nearly 1,500 in the last few days) and thousands (James Woods, tens of thousands) literally overnight.
Surely Twitter is targeting us, but I suspect some of the loss has to do with the droves of people now leaving Twitter as Trump’s tweets were a magnet for them in the first place.
Driving Trump underground is sheer foolishness.
In one twenty-four period Twitter reduced my followers by 63,000.
The purge is on and unabashed in its ruthlessness.
Silencing voices is a sign of tyranny. The only sure truth about Twitter is that it is most decidedly not an unbiased “forum” for free speech.
Apple and Google crack down on Parler after violent threats
Apple and Google have told the “free speech” social media app Parler that it must begin moderating its users content, following violence at the US Capitol this week. The app — a Twitter alternative popular among Donald Trump supporters and the far-right — has faced renewed scrutiny for its role in the planning of the attacks. [What “planning?” Where are the reports of “attack” planning?—ed].
On Friday, as pressure grew for Apple and Google to remove it from their stores, Google suspended Parler from the Play Store, citing “continued posting in the Parler app that seeks to incite ongoing violence in the U.S.”
This will brighten your day! And, maybe best to re-read and re-watch the videos at the Conservative Tree House(aka The Last Refuge) every day for the next week!
I don’t know about you, but I have been using Twitter to smile and laugh almost daily for the last few weeks as grassroots activists post their videos of massive pro-Trump rallies, car, truck, motorcycle and boat parades, and I especially liked the Trump brigades surrounding Biden’s pathetic pumpkin stage in Pennsylvania on Sunday.
Editors note on the picture of Biden arriving on that pumpkin stage: I found a picture on Twitter, apparently taken from a distance by a Biden fan, and I cropped it and blew it up to reveal Biden being supported by Jill. Is she is using both hands to steady him as he walks to the podium? Astounding!
Have you heard anything about Biden planning to make no more public appearances now to election day? Wasn’t sure if that is a rumor.
A diverse and patriotic MAGA movement is overwhelming the mechanisms of narrative control; and they are doing it by flooding the zones with a combination of “old school” and “modern tech” workarounds. It’s quite honestly the most remarkable political dynamic since the organic Tea Party erupted in 2009.
“A right-wing offensive” is the 2020 narrative equivalent to Clinton’s vast Russian conspiracy theory. The truth is Big Tech is getting their ass kicked by the American electorate and they are freaking out about how visible, in-your-face, unapologetic and dramatic the MAGA activism has become.
Here’s what is happening… really just an affirmation of what everyone is noticing and talking about…. and it is wonderful.
A combination of what I would call “old school” activism is taking place everywhere. Car parades, boat parades, marches, rallies and massive swarms of American MAGA supporters are literally flooding the political space in a scale that makes it impossible to ignore.
Trump happy warriors even in Beverly Hills, California!
See many more videos of spontaneous rallies.
Then Sundance wraps with this,
The American people are all-in, right now when it matters most; the Monster Vote is also clearly evident. Spontaneous acts of patriotism are now considered representative of the counter-culture; people of all colors, races, creeds and orientations are united under the Red, White and Blue MAGA banner; and all of this was initiated organically by an American President who just transparently loves this country.
MAGA bitches, this is just awesome.
Go to the Conservative Treehouse, see the videos and come back to it often to get your daily laugh! See the comments too!
Don’t miss the videos of the Trump fans who attended the pathetic pumpkin stage rally (uninvited).
Every day it gets worse. And, for anyone considering voting for good ol’ Joe thinking the country might calm down for awhile afterward, forget it!
There will be years of investigations into the Biden crime family and their circle of beneficiaries and apologists.
Yesterday ‘Sundance’ at the Conservative Tree Houseinformed us that Anna (Anya Adeola ) Makanju, Facebooks Election Integrity Watch dog, formerly worked as an adviser to Veep Joe Biden! Hat tip: Cathy.
She advised him on Europe and Eurasia apparently along with her role as a senior adviser to eeek! Samantha Power.
(If you have forgotten the foreign-born George Soros protege Power, see my many posts on her at RRW where she, Hillary and Susan Rice had been dubbed the “Humanitarian Vulcans” in the Obama White House. Those peace-loving humanitarians conspired to violently bring down the Libyan government which of course ultimately precipitated a massive wave of migrants that are still flowing to Europe.)
She is a public policy and legal expert working at Facebook, where she leads efforts to ensure election integrity on the platform. Previously, she was the special policy adviser for Europe and Eurasia to former US Vice President Joe Biden, senior policy adviser to Ambassador Samantha Power at the United States Mission to the United Nations.
She was a Paul and Daisy Soros New Americans Fellowship recipientwith anotherbio here, which included this: “She also was the Director for Russia at the National Security Council.” (Paul Soros was George Soros’ older brother.)
You know that people like Samantha Power and Anna/Anya Makanju are waiting in the wings to return to the seat of power should Harris/Biden (with Facebook’s help) be triumphant in November or December or whenever this election from hell ends.
Less than a week ago I told you about how Facebook is blocking sites like VDARE that apparently the woke and oh-so-smart people at Facebook don’t like, and it is no surprise to see Google hard at work doing the same.
Here is Robert Spencer, whose blog Jihad Watchhas been the go-to site for the latest news about the ‘religion of peace’ for going on two decades, finding the site buried by Google.
And, look who is here—Imam-extraordinaire Omar Suleiman!
Google Erases the Existence of Those Who Speak Unwelcome Truths
Daniel Greenfield, the peerless Shillman Fellow and FrontPage writer, tweeted the news on May 7: “Google just erased my Sultan Knish blog and Front Page Mag articles from the first pages of results for my name doubt very much this is accidental.”
I did too, so I checked for myself, and sure enough: a Google search for “Robert Spencer” now does not bring up Jihad Watch, where most of my writing outside of books has been published for the last seventeen years, but it does give you defamatory and distorted attack pieces from the far-Left Southern Poverty Law Center*** and the Saudi-funded Bridge Initiative, and nothing that doesn’t portray me and my work in the most unfavorable possible light.
This latest example of the tech giants’ determination to silence all dissenting voices reveals one often overlooked fact: they are desperately afraid.
Google is so afraid of Jihad Watch, in fact, that it is going to great lengths to make you think that the site (which you can find here) doesn’t exist at all.
Several years ago, under pressure from the Texas-based imam Omar Suleiman, Google changed the algorithm for its search results so as to bury anything critical of Islamic jihad violence or Sharia oppression of women. Jihad Watch, which for years had been the first result in a Google search for “jihad” (back when Google searches were based solely on relevance and the popularity of the site), fell off the front page of “jihad” searches.
Now Google has gone even farther to make sure you don’t see Jihad Watch. Just this morning, I was looking for an old Jihad Watch article from a few years ago that I needed for a citation, and I entered an exact phrase from that article into the Google search bar. What came back were two sites where the article had been republished, but no indication that it had ever been at Jihad Watch at all.
In George Orwell’s dystopian novel of a totalitarian society, 1984, to which far more people refer than have actually read the book, the dissenter Winston Smith’s job in the Ministry of Truth involves erasing from all historical records any mention of people who have been declared “nonpersons.” Foes of the regime aren’t just vilified. Their very existence is erased. Dissent is easy to control if all record of it ever having been enunciated is eradicated, and Google has apparently taken a page from Orwell’s book.
Of course, Jihad Watch is one of the least of the concerns of Big Tech. They’re erasing all manner of people who dissent from the Leftist agenda. Greenfield notes that “Google controls 80% of search. That means it controls what the internet looks like. And it’s continuing to erase conservatives from the internet. I’m just the latest victim. Its censorship and creepy surveillance have reached new heights during the pandemic.”
*** One of the funniest things I ever read from someone who had newly been labeled a hate GROUP by the Southern Poverty Law Center was Daniel Greenfield’s post in 2012when he learned he (with his blog Sultan Knish) had been added to the SPLC’s Hate GROUP list.
HOW I BECAME A HATE GROUP
Here are just a few snips:
When I went to sleep last night, little did I know that while outside sirens competed with car alarms in the symphony that is New York City, I had already been declared a hate group.
Being declared a hate group wasn’t in my plans for the day, but like winning the lottery, it seems to be one of those things that happens when you least expect it. Except that as the little bald man in front of the bodega tells you, you have to play to win, but you don’t even have to buy a ticket to be declared an official hate group.
My first response on finding out that I was now a hate group was to look around to see where everyone else was. A hate group needs the “group” part, and one man and a cat don’t seem to be enough. Even when the cat is a well known bigot who hates mice, birds, car alarms that go off in the middle of the night, the plumber and sudden noises.
Still the Southern Poverty Law Center had listed, “Sultan Knish a blog by Daniel Greenfield” as one of their “Active Anti-Muslim Hate Groups…”
I suppose I found this so funny because the SPLC has done the same to me (I have a cat) too!
