Twitter Censors Trump Again, Claims To Be Protecting “Civil And Election Integrity”

“Engagements with the Tweet will be limited”

Twitter once again censored a post by Donald Trump Sunday, this time claiming that the President had “violated the Twitter Rules about civil and election integrity.”

Trump tweeted a claim that mail drop boxes are a “voter security disaster,” and would open the door to allow people to vote multiple times.

The president also warned that the mailboxes are not sanitized, and could help spread Covid-19.

Within a few hours, the tweet was censored by Twitter:

“This tweet violated the Twitter Rules about civil and election integrity. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible,” the filter read.

“Per our policies, this Tweet will remain on the service given its relevance to ongoing public conversation. Engagements with the Tweet will be limited. People will be able to Retweet with Comment, but not Like, Reply, or Retweet it,” a statement from Twitter read.

Twitter censoring Trump is now a regular occurrence.

Back in May, the company posted “fact check” labels to Trump’s tweets regarding potential fraud stemming from mail-in ballots. Trump’s tweet was deemed to be misleading, regardless of the fact that a USPS mail carrier in West Virginia was charged with fraud for tampering with vote-by-mail requests.

Twitter again censored one of Trump’s tweets at the height of rioting in Minneapolis, claiming that the President was “glorifying violence”.

Twitter inserted a “public interest notice” on another of Trump’s tweets in June, accusing him of “threatening harm against an identifiable group” when the President warned that any violence among protests in Washington would be met with a show of force in order to keep law and order.

Just weeks later in July, Twitter removed a meme that Trump had retweeted.

Twitter also completely removed a video of a Fox & Friends interview earlier this month claiming Trump was spreading “misinformation” about the coronavirus when he stated that children are ‘almost completely immune’ from the virus.
Two more tweets from Trump were not censored Sunday, both slamming Democrats for removing the words “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance during last week’s DNC:

Major New Report Finds Online Censorship is Self-Defeating

Makes people distrust authorities event more.

Published

on

A major new report by the esteemed Royal Society finds that online censorship is self-defeating and only causes individuals to distrust authorities even more.

Of course, the more cynical observer would assert that online censorship isn’t driven by the benevolent motivation to halt “dangerous misinformation.”

But by the very malevolent motivation to bury the truth.

Why The Regime Hates Joe Rogan

The real agenda.

Published

on

The regime is targeting Joe Rogan because they’re frustrated at their inability to censor podcasts the same way they have blacklisted content on other social media platforms.

That and Rogan’s audience being more than 10 times larger than CNN’s best primetime show.

Report: German Government Considering Shutting Down Telegram

Because anti-lockdown activists are using it to organise

A report in the German newspaper Die Welt suggests that the government there is considering taking action to shut down messaging app Telegram because people opposed to COVID restrictions and lockdowns are using it to organise protests and share information.

The report contains an interview with German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser who stated “We cannot rule this out,” when asked if the platform will be targeted for censorship.

“A shutdown would be grave and clearly a last resort. All other options must be exhausted first,” Faeser clarified.

The minister also told the newspaper that while it is currently unclear what legal action would be needed to shut down the platform, the German government is in consultation with the European Union regarding potential regulation of it.

The Epoch Times notes that in Germany, which has implemented some of the most severe pandemic restrictions, “Telegram has been used as a hub of communication for the protest movement against the measures established to fight the CCP virus, including lockdowns, intermittent mask mandates, and restrictions for the unvaccinated.”

Telegram has been shut down or blocked in other countries including Iran, China, Pakistan, India, Thailand, and Russia.

The platform saw a huge surge in users last year after Facebook owned Watts App introduced a controversial privacy update which led to concerns that the app would hand over user data to its parent company. It also came at the same time as President Trump’s purge from big tech social media platforms.

Telegram founder Pavel Durov warned that people are “being held hostage by tech monopolies.”

In addition to being independent from big tech, Telegram promises robust end-to-end encryption, ensuring messages remain private.

This has made Telegram a target for authoritarians and big tech monopolists.

In the U.S. lobbyist group The Coalition for a Safer Web even filed a lawsuit against Apple in an effort to get Telegram removed from the app store, claiming that it allows ‘extremists’ to spread ‘hate speech’.
