Twitter Slaps ‘Fact Check’ Censor On Trump Tweet About ‘Rigged Election’

“Twitter is completely stifling FREE SPEECH, and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!”

President Trump warned Tuesday that the election will be ‘rigged’ by Democrats using the pandemic to justify mail-in voting, and Twitter slapped a ‘fact check’ label on the post.

“There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent,” Trump tweeted.

“This will be a Rigged Election. No way!” the president proclaimed.

Trump cited California’s governor Gavin Newsom signing an executive order to ensure all voters will receive mail ballots for the election in November.

“Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged and even illegally printed out and fraudulently signed,” Trump urged.

Lawsuits have been filed in an attempt to block the move by The Republican National Committee, National Republican Congressional Committee, and the California Republican Party.

They contend that the move to an all mail in vote system is unconstitutional.

Trump declared that Democrats will use the opportunity to lobby people into giving them their votes.

“That will be followed up with professionals telling all of these people, many of whom have never even thought of voting before, how, and for whom, to vote,” he asserted.

Trump’s tweet was subsequently ‘fact checked’ by Twitter, with the company putting a warning label below it stating “Get the facts about mail-in ballots,” with a link to a page that states “Trump falsely claimed that mail-in ballots would lead to ‘a Rigged Election.’ However, fact-checkers say there is no evidence that mail-in ballots are linked to voter fraud.”

The page on Twitter notes that “These claims are unsubstantiated, according to CNN, Washington Post and others.”

It also includes a host of tweets and posts by blue-checked leftists, some of whom make a living purely from attacking Trump relentlessly over anything and everything every day:


Aaron Rupar, for example, is an Associate editor at Vox who constantly tweets misleading clips and claims about Trump. The man is obsessed with bashing Trump every minute of every day, because ‘orange man bad’, yet here he is featured as part of Twitter’s ‘fact check’.

Jennifer Bendery is a senior politics reporter for HuffPost, another virulently leftist website. Bendery almost constantly slates Trump over everything he does and says, just look at her Twitter feed.

Abby Phillip is a white house correspondent for CNN, who previously had a run in with Trump over a question she asked about Robert Mueller at the height of the ‘Russian interference’ conspiracy.

Sam Levine is a former HuffPost correspondent who now works for The Guardian US. Leftist.

Daniel Dale is a CNN reporter, who previously worked for the Toronto Star, who literally said that ‘fact checking’ Trump has caused him to “rethink the relationship a journalist has with the truth.”

Dale’s entire existence is dedicated to countering everything Trump does, no matter what it is. If Trump farts, Dale is on hand to claim it wasn’t an accurate fart.

The list goes on.

It is blatantly obvious that Twitter is attempting to divert anyone catching Trump’s tweets toward a torrent of leftist opinion and agenda.

Twitter told CNBC that Trump’s tweets “contain potentially misleading information about voting processes and have been labeled to provide additional context around mail-in ballots.”

While Twitter has routinely slapped ‘fact checks’ on other posts, this is the first time  the company has used such a label on any Trump tweet.

Trump responded by declaring that Twitter is meddling in the election by “saying my statement on Mail-In Ballots, which will lead to massive corruption and fraud, is incorrect.”

“Twitter is completely stifling FREE SPEECH, and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!,” he added in another tweet.

Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale wedged in, charging that Twitter is trying to block Trump from reaching voters.

“We always knew that Silicon Valley would pull out all the stops to obstruct and interfere with President Trump getting his message through to voters,” Parscale urged.

“Partnering with the biased fake news media ‘fact checkers’ is only a smoke screen Twitter is using to try to lend their obvious political tactics some false credibility,” Parscale said, adding “There are many reasons the Trump campaign pulled all our advertising from Twitter months ago, and their clear political bias is one of them.”

Donald Trump Jr. also responded to the move by Twitter:

The Twitter ‘fact check’ on Trump’s posts comes just days after MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski lobbied the company to take action against Trump, after he doubled down on tweets concerning her husband and co-host, ‘psycho’ Joe Scarborough:

The move by Twitter also comes amid reports that the company’s AI tools are far from accurate when it comes to labelling posts as ‘misleading’.

Facebook Algorithm Accuses 81-Year-Old Grandmother of “Hate Speech” Over Knitted Pigs Comment

Threatens to ban her account.

Published

Rita Rich-Mulcahy

Facebook’s algorithm flagged an 81-year-old grandmother’s comments about knitted pigs as an example of “hate speech” and threatened her with a permanent ban.

Yes, really.

After losing her husband last year, Rita Rich-Mulcahy, a retired teacher who lives in Australia, created the Facebook page to share with the world her love of knitting and raise money for The Smith Family charity, which helps disadvantaged children.

After posting a picture of her own knitted pigs, Rich-Mulcahy referred to them as “white pigs” and “high-viz pigs,” resulting in the threat to terminate her account over “hate speech.”

“It may seem a small thing to most people, but to someone who had never even had an overdue library book, being charged with using hate speech was frightening,” said Rich-Mulcahy.

Facebook issued a statement asserting that its automated system flagging the comments was a “mistake” that its AI “sometimes” makes.

The story once again illustrates how Facebook’s censorship algorithm, which gets stricter almost by the day as a result of relentless mainstream media hysteria, is completely broken.

Twitter Blocks Links to CPAC Website

Users told link is “unsafe.”

Twitter is blocking links to the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) website, with users being told they are sharing an “unsafe” URL.

CPAC is an annual political conference attended by activists, journalists and elected officials from the United States.

The organization’s 2021 gathering will get underway tomorrow Orlando, Florida, with former President Donald Trump scheduled as the headline speaker.

However, Twitter users attempting to access CPAC’s website from the social media platform are now shown a warning that tells them clicking the link “may be unsafe.”

The warning message goes on to list four categories, which includes “violent or misleading content that could lead to real-world harm.”

Users are still able to get to the website, but they have to agree to continue at their own risk.

Back in October, Twitter caused controversy by blocking a New York Post story about Hunter Biden’s alleged attempts to influence his father, Joe Biden, to shut down a probe into Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

The company claimed the story violated their “hacked materials” policy but did an about-face after CEO Jack Dorsey admitted that blocking URLs without context was “wrong.”

However, even after admitting its error, Twitter then blocked a follow-up story about Hunter Biden’s alleged effort to get his father a cut of a deal involving Shanghai-based CEFC China Energy Co.

Democrats Demand To Know Why Cable Companies Don’t CENSOR Conservative Media

“Are you planning to continue carrying Fox News, OANN, and Newsmax on your platform both now and beyond the renewal date? If so, why?”

In a blatant attempt to pressure cable providers to censor conservative media, Democrats have penned a letter demanding to know what they intend to do about certain channels, including Fox and Newsmax, spreading ‘disinformation’.

The letter sent Monday by California Democrats Anna Eshoo and Jerry McNerney also asked satellite and digital TV providers “Are you planning to continue carrying Fox News, OANN, and Newsmax on your platform both now and beyond the renewal date? If so, why?”

The letter, which claimed the networks have spread ‘conspiracy theories’ regarding the election, was sent to Comcast, AT&T, Spectrum, Dish, Verizon, Cox and Altice, as well as digital carriers Amazon, Apple, Google, Hulu and Roku. 

The Democrats also accused conservative networks of “encouragement or incitement of violence.”

Eshoo and McNerney head the subcommittee on Communications and Technology, which will hold a hearing on “traditional media’s role in promoting disinformation and extremism” on Wednesday. 

A press release for the hearing declared that there is an “increasing reliance on conspiracy theories and misleading or patently false information” among conservative news networks, and this “raises questions about their devotion to journalistic integrity.”

Republican Brendan Carr, who sits on the Federal Communications Commission, described the Democrats’ letter as “a chilling transgression” of free speech rights.

Carr added that Democrats are “sending a message that is as clear as it is troubling—these regulated entities will pay a price if the targeted newsrooms do not conform to Democrats’ preferred political narratives.”

Carr called for the FCC to “join me in publicly denouncing this attempt to stifle political speech and independent news judgment.” 

The response on social media to the letter was led by independent journalist Glenn Greenwald:

Others noted that AT&T is the parent company of CNN, so censoring that networks direct rivals would be a bold move:
