An independent blogger has been banned from the Medium platform after she complied a list of corporations that have gone ‘woke’, glommed onto black lives matter activism and defended ‘protests’ that led to looting and rioting.

Medium banned conservative writer Ashley Goldenberg, who goes by the moniker ‘Communism Kills’.

Medium sent an email to Goldenberg, informing her that she had violated the site’s rules against “hate speech, disinformation, and targeted harassment.”

“Medium’s decision to take down my post — and my account — is obviously a politically-motivated one,” Goldenberg said in response.

“I wrote about large, powerful companies that support the Black Lives Matter movement to demonstrate that America is not the white supremacist country that the protesters are claiming it is. That’s not hate speech, disinformation, or harassment.” she added.

“Meanwhile, on the same day Medium took down my account, the headline ‘CEOs Need to Treat Racism Like the Pandemic it is: How to reimagine companies in the era of Black Lives Matter‘ was featured on my [Medium] homepage,” Goldenberg added.

“That doesn’t seem coincidental.” she noted.

At time of writing, Medium has not responded to requests for comment.

Below is Goldenberg’s list of companies that have defended BLM, the vast majority without condemning the violence and looting that has accompanied demonstrations.

Jack Dorsey Admits Censorship of New York Post Story Was “Wrong”

But Twitter refuses to unblock other censored URLs.

Published

on

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has admitted that the social media giant’s censorship of a New York Post story alleging Joe Biden’s involvement in a foreign lobbying scandal was “wrong”.

The controversy began on Wednesday when the Post, citing leaked emails, claimed Hunter Biden had introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive in a Ukrainian energy firm a year before Biden pressured the government of Ukraine to fire a prosecutor who was investigating the company.

Twitter quickly followed up by determining the information to be a violation of its “hacked materials” policy and blocked users from both tweeting a link to the article and sending it to each other via direct message.

Numerous prominent Twitter users were also locked out of their accounts for attempting to post the story and Twitter even blocked a link to the Republican Republican Judiciary website at house.gov that carried a copy of the New York Post article.

After a firestorm of complaints and the prospect of being dragged before another Republican committee, Dorsey acknowledged that Twitter had made a mistake.

“Straight blocking of URLs was wrong, and we updated our policy and enforcement to fix. Our goal is to attempt to add context, and now we have capabilities to do that,” tweeted Dorsey.

Dorsey’s climb down is remarkable, but his admission that blocking URLs is “wrong” apparently doesn’t extend to other websites that are blocked by the platform.

As numerous respondents to Dorsey pointed out, both video hosting websites BitChute and Banned.video are still blocked by Twitter.

Twitter Blocks Link to Republican Judiciary Website in Another Attempt to Censor Biden Scandal

“Twitter is now blocking a government website.”

Published

on

Republican House Judiciary

After blocking links to the New York Post story about Joe Biden’s foreign lobbying scandal, Twitter has now followed up by blocking a link to the official Republican Judiciary website at house.gov.

Both Facebook and Twitter prompted a censorship firestorm yesterday after they attempted to censor a New York Post article that claimed Hunter Biden had introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive in a Ukrainian energy firm a year before Biden pressured the government of Ukraine to fire a prosecutor who was investigating the company.

Twitter also locked many prominent users out of their accounts for tweeting links to or screenshots from the article, including media organizations, reporters, celebrities and government organizations.

The social media giant claimed it was enforcing a policy that forbids “hacked materials” from being posted on its site, despite the fact that Hunter Biden’s laptop was legally in the possession of the computer repair shop that had it since Biden didn’t pay for the repair.

Twitter also said that it forbids the sharing of “personal and private information — like email addresses and phone numbers,” although just like the “hacked materials” policy this is only ever selectively enforced.

Now the company has taken its censorship blitzkrieg one step further by actually blocking a link to the Republican Judiciary website.

The official House Judiciary Twitter account tweeted a link to the webpage with the text, Twitter has blocked users from tweeting the link to the @nypost’s story on Hunter Biden. So we put it on our website for you to read and share. Click, share, and RT!”

However, when users attempt to click on the link, they are met with a message that reads, “Warning: this link may be unsafe,” before a description that says the article contains “violent or misleading content that could lead to real-world harm.”

“Twitter is now blocking a government website,” commented journalist Tim Pool.

We’ve officially crossed the rubicon.

Social media giants, acting as front groups for the Democratic Party, are now behaving as if they have more power than the government of the United States.

And to a great extent – partly due to the failure of Republicans to regulate Big Tech monopolies – they do.

Twitter LOCKS Accounts Of Media, Celebrities, Gov. Officials For Sharing Biden Scandal Story

Even CEO Jack Dorsey says the response is “unacceptable”

Twitter has locked the accounts of anyone who shared the New York Post story regarding Joe Biden’s foreign lobbying scandal, including media organisations, reporters, celebrities, and even government officials.

The story, which has been met with denials from the Biden campaign, claims that Hunter Biden had introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive in a Ukrainian energy firm a year before Biden pressured the government of Ukraine to fire a prosecutor who was investigating the company.

After following Facebook’s crackdown, Twitter prevented anyone from sharing the “potentially harmful” story:

Twitter even prevented editors at the NY Post from tweeting out the story:

Now the company has gone one step further by LOCKING the accounts of anyone attempting to spread the information.

The NY Post’s primary account was locked:

A reporter with The Daily Caller attempted to share the story, and found his account was also locked:

Several other conservative reporters found their accounts locked:

Actor James Woods had the same experience:

Even White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s account was locked by Twitter:

Twitter’s actions have been labelled as election meddling and an ‘act of digital civil war’, as the company is not only locking accounts and preventing the spread of the information on its own platform, but discouraging anyone from reading the story in general:

Even Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey attempted to distance himself, describing his company’s response to the story as “not great” and “unacceptable”:

Was he really referring to the censorship though, or that fact that the reason for the censorship wasn’t well “communicated”?:

Perhaps Dorsey would like to explain this under oath?
