Twitter Bans Trump Official A Fortnight After He Slammed Big-Tech Censorship

“It’s because of who I am and what I might say not because of anything I did”

Twitter has banned yet another former Trump official, just two weeks after he described big-tech suppression of free speech as ‘chilling’.

Former White House Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, Peter Navarro has had his account suspended by Twitter despite not even using it for weeks.

Navarro told Tucker Carlson that this highlights how the ongoing purge is part of a pre-determined agenda.

“It was something about unusual traffic but I hadn’t tweeted since January 14th,” Navarro said.

“The point here is it’s because of who I am and what I might say not because of anything I did,” he added.

“And this is Pichai at Google, Dorsey at Twitter, Zuckerberg at Facebook, Bezos at Amazon. They somehow believe that it’s their responsibility to shut up half of America,” Navarro urged.

“They’re doing violence to the First Amendment. They’re doing violence to this country. And, this will not stand Tucker. This cannot stand,” Navarro raged.

Navarro’s ban comes just two weeks after he very publicly slammed big-tech for going after smaller companies like Parler.

“What we have here is a classic collusive oligopoly, a kind of new wine in an old bottle,” Navarro told Fox News, adding “What we saw with this attack on Parler was chilling to me. It’s one thing to deplatform everybody for free speech. But, this was a pincer move where Google and Apple, [the] first part of the pincer, was to not allow Parler apps to be down.”

Navarro added that Amazon then came in for the “brutal kill by taking the cloud away”.

Navarro noted that though the former Supreme Leader of Iran Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini was “allowed” to tweet and the “China Communist Party official propaganda organs put things up [on Twitter] all the time,” President Trump had been removed.

During the interview, Navarro also blasted Twitter, pointing out that Iranian and Chinese dictators are allowed to post things all the time on the platform.

“The Twitter censors don’t jump up there and say ‘this is disputed.’ So what is going on here, I think, is a very serious threat to our democracy,” Navarro said.

Now he’s banned too.

Twitter even banned the My Pillow guy this week, presumably just because he publicly supported The President of the United States.

Sam Harris Rage Quits Twitter Days After Claiming Hunter Biden Laptop Story Was Right “By Accident”

Musk announces that all internal Twitter communications about censoring the laptop story from 2020 will be made public

Lefty ‘philosopher’ Sam Harris has deleted his Twitter account, just days after he claimed that the New York Post report on the infamous Hunter Biden laptop was correct “by accident,” a comment that renewed scrutiny of Harris’ previous comments that he supported censorship of the story.

Harris complained on the Bill Maher podcast that he was being harassed by ‘right wing lunatics’ on Twitter in regards to his previous comments that he would still have supported censoring the story even if Hunter Biden had “the corpses of dead children in his basement,” as a way of preventing a second Trump term.

Now Harris’ Twitter account, which had 1.5 million followers, is gone:

It isn’t clear whether Harris quit Twitter in response to reporting on his comments, or whether Elon Musk’s ‘voice of the people’ inspired decision to reinstate Trump and grant a general amnesty to others spurred the move, or both.

Either way, he’s taken his ball home.

Rest assured, you’ll still hear about Harris’ philosophical insights, like this for example:

Harris follows the likes of other lefty celebrities including Whoopi Goldberg, Gigi Hadid, and Jack White who have all rage quit the platform in recent days.

Interestingly, Musk is saying that he intends to make public all internal discussions about the censoring of the Post’s Hunter Biden laptop story, noting “this is necessary to restore public trust.”

Musk also announced some details on the new $8 Twitter verification system:

    Elon Musk Announces General Amnesty BUT Twitter T&C’s Say ‘Denial Of Violent Events’ Will Not Be Tolerated

    Did Musk mean to write ‘being Alex Jones will not be tolerated’?

    Following the result of another Twitter poll indicating that over 70% want to see a general amnesty for suspended Twitter users, Elon Musk has announced that it will begin next week, but it appears there are some major caveats.

    Musk again said “the people have spoken,” and used the Latin phrase “vox populi, vox dei,” meaning “the voice of the people is the voice of God”.

    It means that accounts that didn’t break the law or spam egregiously will be reinstated, according to Musk.

    The amnesty announcement immediately triggered the media into declaring that a bunch of ‘online safety experts’ are warning that “lives are at risk.”

    The overlord experts are panicking about “a rise in harassment, hate speech and misinformation.”

    At the same time this was all unfolding, Musk tweeted out several posts regarding ‘hate speech’.

    It is now clear that those terms were, shall we say, somewhat broad. So will they all remain in place after the amnesty?

    It isn’t clear.

    And then there is this…

    This just led to more questions…

    Is this really new? Did Musk add this?

    What does it actually mean?

    ‘Vox Populi, Vox Dei’: Elon Musk Says General Amnesty For Suspended Accounts ‘Begins Next Week’

    Twitter CEO Elon Musk on Thanksgiving Day announced that a general amnesty for suspended Twitter users who haven’t “broken the law or engaged in egregious spam” will begin “next week.” 

    Musk posted a poll on Wednesday asking, “Should Twitter offer a general amnesty to suspended accounts, provided that they have not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam?” 

    With over 3 million votes, 72.4% of users said “Yes” versus just 27.6% who said “No.”

    “The people have spoken,” Musk announced after the poll closed. “Amnesty begins next week. Vox Populi, Vox Dei.”

    Musk said on Tuesday that his plan to have a “content moderation council with widely diverse viewpoints” was crafted because “a large coalition of political/social activist groups” (see: the Anti-Defamation League and their cronies) “agreed not to try to kill Twitter by starving us of advertising revenue if I agreed to this condition” but “they broke the deal” by immediately organizing an advertiser boycott against him.

    Musk on Saturday told ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt, who ordered the boycott, to “stop defaming me!”

    Greenblatt last month threatened Musk with “dire consequences” if he replatformed “dangerous individuals” like Donald Trump, Alex Jones, Nick Fuentes, Steve Bannon, Andrew Tate and David Duke.

    Musk already unbanned Donald Trump and Andrew Tate and it’s looking like he may let everyone else back on too.

    Happy Thanksgiving, bros!
