Yesterday, Fascistbook decided to ban Alex Jones, Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopolous and Paul Joseph Watson.
Oh, and they threw in Louis Farrakhan to make it look like it wasn’t politically motivated.
Spoiler Alert: It was politically motivated.
The fact is, Fascistbook is trying its hand at a little election interference.
And if you think they’ll stop at Alex Jones, Laura Loomer, Milo or Paul Joseph Watson, you’re incredibly naïve.
They’re just getting started.
Paul Joseph Watson was banned despite the fact that he did not violate the Fascistbook terms of service.
I’m a big fan of Paul Joseph Watson and I often post his videos here at Patriot Retort.
He’s funny, clever and nobody is as effective at using humor to destroy the fascistic far Left quite like him.
So what was Paul Joseph Watson’s crime? Why would Fascistbook need to ban a guy who did nothing to warrant his removal?
PJW is guilty of Wrong Think.
Of course Fascistbook doesn’t call it Wrong Think. Instead, they labeled him “Dangerous.”
For criticizing Modern Art?
Quick, honey! Hide the kids!! Paul Joseph Watson is talking about modern art in a negative fashion!!!
Here’s the bottom line.
The Left cannot win elections in the arena of ideas. So Fascistbook has decided to try its hand at election interference so that the only “ideas” in the arena are the ones those huffy little tech gremlins in Silicon Valley approve of.
And they’ll keep doing it all the way up to November 2020.
They’ll pick us off one-by-one – occasionally tossing in someone from the other side in order to make it look less like election interference.
But it’s election interference.
It’s Fascistbook putting its finger on the scale in order to give the Democrats an exclusive platform from which to campaign while deplatforming us.
If you think for one second that this occurring during a Presidential election is pure coincidence, think again.
Undoubtedly, social media played a very large role in the 2016 election. It allowed both candidates and supporters to go over the heads of the mainstream news media and reach the people. And Fascistbook doesn’t want that to happen again.
In that respect, these targeted deplatformings are an in-kind donation to the Democratic National Committee.
Fascistbook must be reined in.
And, please. Spare me the “But we shouldn’t have the government regulate tech giants because we’re conservative and regulations are bad. And if we do it now, just think what the Democrats would do if they ever regain power!!!”
Earth to fussy conservatives: The Democrats are already using social media to regulate speech. Hello!
Julie Kelly nailed it on Twitter today. Give her take a read. Retweet it too – now, before Twitter joins in the Fascistbook fun and bans her for being “Dangerous.”
The tech oligarchs who fund future President AOCs already are regulating “conservatives” – and anyone they find crude, distasteful, even offensive who’s not on the political Left will be forced off these platforms regardless of law. When Dems take over, it will expand their power https://t.co/hSt9WYG9kD— Julie Kelly (@julie_kelly2) May 3, 2019
And this loses the argument right here. This is EXACTLY what the social media overlords want: Leave the powerful platforms, lose your voice and influence, and go play footsie with group thinkers. Oh, and share dog pics and argue about Star Wars.https://t.co/b4g8WjhE23— Julie Kelly (@julie_kelly2) May 3, 2019
Twitter is the only place people on the Right have a shot at challenging leftist media. You don’t defend Kavanaugh and Covington kids by reading a newsletter. There is zero chance the public would know about FISAgate without Twitter/FB. It’s Ground Zero in political/cultural wars https://t.co/Bj2EPUV5t7— Julie Kelly (@julie_kelly2) May 3, 2019
Publisher or platform is legal hair-splitting. Either defend the territory politically or lose entirely.— Julie Kelly (@julie_kelly2) May 3, 2019
The “who cares if whackos get banned from Facebook” are the same suck-ups who thought the Covington kids smirked and Kavanaugh shouldn’t be on SCOTUS if Ford was telling the truth. They think they’ll be eaten last. They won’t.— Julie Kelly (@julie_kelly2) May 3, 2019
Same loser Conservative Inc that has ignored Leftist tyranny on campus, in corporate board rooms, in major media outlets, in Hollywood. Bumper sticker platitudes that have no attachment to reality or a realization what’s at stake.— Julie Kelly (@julie_kelly2) May 3, 2019
