BREAKING: Twitter SUSPENDS Project Veritas!

According to James O’Keefe, Twitter has apparently decided that investigative journalism violates their terms of service and has temporarily suspended the account for Project Veritas:



Here’s the attachment to his tweet from Twitter:

That is absolute poppycock. There is no private information in this tweet whatsoever.

Twitter is just using this an excuse to punish O’Keefe’s company in the only way they can. What malarkey.

Well, the ‘four monopolies’ seems to be getting proven. You have Zuckerberg desperately trying to contact Pelosi over something that was on Youtube. Twitter and Pinterest arm-in-arm. Liberal run liberal operated.

We all knew this was coming in time for the 2020 presidential election, and these social media companies have shrewdly started to purge conservatives/Christians/etc. before the Democrat primary has had time to heat up, and casual voters on the right start to pay attention. Traditional media won’t make mention of it, and it will be news to sleeping America next summer when it’s too late to offset the damage of the right being left voiceless on these platforms. The Obama administration got away with it in 2012 (IRS targeting) and worse in 2016 (FBI/DOJ/FISA), and these social media GIANTS will too, unless their users collectively force them to remove accounts in significant numbers, or just accept conservative and Christian speech.

Kind of reminds me of when folks get stopped on a bogus pretext as an excuse to give the folks with authority and in charge time to look for something they can be punished with.

We support that, right? I can never remember.

Twitter MUST be held to account and atone for this capricious action.

Until it costs them something they value dearly, they will continue to do this with impunity. They must either be a Media Company or a Platform. They cannot pretend to be one and benefit from the special protections granted it by The Congress and behave as the other.

Another day, another story about social media monopolies targeting conservatives, silencing conservative voices, and discriminating against conservatives.

…it’s almost like we’re a minority and it’s socially acceptable to treat us like 5th rate citizens.

Twitter doesn’t want any of their employees following the path of the Pinterest employee. Therefore, get rid of O’Keefe.

correct me if I’m wrong, but when a post made in a PUBLIC forum, isn’t it no longer private? and where is the private info that was supposedly posted? All i see is a synopsis of events that went down, no actual private info!

The problem is both sides are entrenching, nothing Trump does including creating laws like the bump stock ban even bothers his supporters and nothing twitter does will bother leftist.

A genocidal maniac starts persecuting and killing minorities he wants to get rid of. They leave when the US, Canada, Australia, and Europe offer the refugees a new home. What message does that send to the next guy who wants to “purify” his country?

Abuse should never be rewarded.

They want us to leave, so why help them achieve their goal?

Worse, with a massive portion of people getting their news from social media, abandoning the field only makes it more likely their viewers/reader will have a very warped worldview.

Gotta love the totalitarians at Twitter. The unvarnished truth scares the crap out them. Their users will only believe what they tell them they will believe. Diversity of opinion is not allowed. And certainly no ratting out of other tech companies that employ the same tactics they do. What a loathsome company.

PaladinPaladin I disagree. I can’t blame “lazy” people. Most people are living their lives, going to work, raising their kids, paying their bills. Most aren’t paying attention to this stuff like we are.

BUT our legislators are, and it’s way past time for them to remove the protected status that these social media “platforms” have enjoyed. They have violated the terms of agreement by no longer being neural facilitators, and therefore they should no longer qualify as such.

“You’re temporarily banned from Twitter for posting truths that embarrass the Dems.” Yes, the Left’s inability to fight back against the truth using their litany of lies is really inconvenient so it must be stopped.

We only started using this garbage form of “communication” a few years ago. We can well live without it, and chill the current freaky frenzy going on in this country.

The medium is the message. We don’t need this junk food media diet.

Next up, demonetization by Youtube and videos blocked/removed. Right now they’re just trying to figure out how to justify it, but that hasn’t stopped them before. Exposing tech companies for their shenanigans is now hate speech.

This is ridiculous. It’s only temporary but it’s a control mechanism. Either step in line and go PC or they’ll knock you out of the conversation. Is it any wonder why the left is winning the culture war with all the major social networks banning anyone that doesn’t go lockstep with PC and the left?

Here’s why all this matters. Hillary was supposed to win. The Left blames social media for Trump’s victory. It allowed people to hear the other side apart from mainstream media, which is predominately Left leaning. These crackdowns on social media to silence alternative voices is an attempt to ensure something like Trump getting elected will never happen again. That’s why we can’t just say oh well it’s their platform they can do what they want. They are literally trying to sway future elections, and if we just accept it and let them get away with it we get what we deserve.

If Twitter had any [email protected], they would suspend President Trump, because he violates every single one of their precious little rules. But since bullies are inherently cowards, they wouldn’t dare.

How Orwellian…

The Koch Brothers are teaming up with tech companies, universities and other fellow billionaires to combat online extremism.

Who will decide what is extreme? According to Harry Reid, the Koch brothers are extremists.

This is newspeak:

…Now more than ever is the time to create communities that value diversity, inclusivity and positive change

…as they discuss how to silence dissent and suppress diversity of thought.

This is very scary, but I am sure ATAT will write there is nothing wrong because they aren’t the government. I think TracyTracy ‘s term “privitized tyranny” is very apt here.

Not unexpected – Project Veritas has been wildly successful in exposing the monsters of The Left and all the evil they do. It doesn’t make it any less wrong on Twitter’s part though.

Once again, until the vast majority of the population moves away from these corrupt bastards, this will continue and only get worse.

At least these companies are admitting to the world that they don’t like free speech. Probably the reason why they lean towards socialism in their political views too.
