“When you tear out a man’s tongue you are not proving him a liar, you’re only telling the world that you fear what he might say” – George RR Martin
As the inauguration of Joe Biden nears and the Trump administration comes to a close, social media giants Twitter and Facebook banned President Trump from their platforms and began suppressing any mention of “#Stop the Steal.”
Some say that because Facebook and Twitter are private companies they can do whatever they want, but there can be little doubt that there is an agenda hidden in both organizations. Revelations from Project Veritas indicate that Twitter founder Jack Dorsey has much broader plans to suppress conservative speech on his platform.
Facebook and Twitter both hold users in utter contempt. We are cattle to them, not customers. And they clearly have a political agenda.
They banned President Trump and have without a doubt suppressed conservative speech through methods such as “shadow banning” and outright bans, such as what they did to President Trump.
Both Facebook and Twitter claim that they banned President Trump because he incited violence and they wanted to prevent any further incitement. But the problem is that President Trump did not call for violence and now, 8 days after the events of January 6, more evidence is emerging of Left-wing involvement in some of the activity at the Capitol building.
Where was the outrage when Obama told his supporters to “get in their face”?
What about Maxine Waters’ and Corey Booker’s instructions to supporters to harass Trump supporters? Then there was this gem from Waters:
Let’s not forget that the most prominent victim of political violence in recent years was Republican Congressman Steve Scalise, who was shot and wounded on a baseball field in Washington, DC.
None of these events led Facebook or Twitter to take any action to suppress free speech such as they are taking now.
So President Trump gets banned for allegedly inciting violence but let’s take a closer look at Facebook and Twitter’s ridiculous policies.
There is no excuse for Twitter continuing to allow the leaders of Iran to issue threats over their platform. There is no excuse for both services allowing the Muslim Brotherhood to operate on their platforms. There is no excuse for them bending over backwards to accommodate a tyrannical communist regime in China to essentially allow it to dominate their platforms.
In case you’re not familiar with the Muslim Brotherhood, that organization, founded in 1925 is the largest Jihadist organization in the world. They are the forerunner of modern Jihadist terrorist organizations, such as Al Qaeda. And the Muslim Brotherhood founded HAMAS, the Jihadist group that has terrorized Israeli civilians for decades. Among the Jihadist terrorists who got their start in the Muslim Brotherhood were Osama Bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed—all Al Qaeda leaders.
Here’s the Muslim Brotherhood’s motto:
Allah is our objective
The Prophet is our leader
Quran is our law
Jihad is our way
Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope
In any other context that would no doubt be considered hate speech, but the geniuses at Facebook and Twitter have no problem with it.
Here’s a particularly interesting post from an Arabic Muslim Brotherhood Facebook page:
Here’s a translation of the most interesting part:
“The Muslim Brotherhood appreciates the boycott calls for France to protest against the abuse of the Prophet and Islam and calls for Islamic anger.”
In the period during this call for “Islamic anger,” there were several instances of “knife jihad” on the city streets in France. Now that really is incitement to violence.
But the most egregious example of Twitter treachery involves Iran. Twitter allows Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to maintain a Twitter feed:
Twitter also hosts Iranian president Hassan Rouhani:
Iran is the world’s most active state sponsor of terrorism.
But more to the point, Iran is the target of broad US sanctions. And by allowing Iran’s leaders access to spread their toxic propaganda to the world, Twitter is in fact violating that sanctions law. This has been well known for some time but our recalcitrant Justice Department has failed to enforce that law.
It’s about time someone held Twitter accountable.
