President Trump blasts social media censorship of conservative voices
President Donald Trump took aim at social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook early Saturday morning, condemning them for banning and attempting to silence conservative voices.
“They are closing down the opinions of many people on the Right …” he twitted.
“Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices. Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won’t let that happen. They are closing down the opinions of many people on the RIGHT, while at the same time doing nothing to others…….”
…..Censorship is a very dangerous thing & absolutely impossible to police. If you are weeding out Fake News, there is nothing so Fake as CNN & MSNBC, & yet I do not ask that their sick behavior be removed. I get used to it and watch with a grain of salt, or don’t watch at all…
….Too many voices are being destroyed, some good & some bad, and that cannot be allowed to happen. Who is making the choices, because I can already tell you that too many mistakes are being made. Let everybody participate, good & bad, and we will all just have to figure it out!”
Facebook, Twitter and Youtube are censoring posts, videos and pictures for violating its speech codes that prohibit so-called “hate speech” and shadow banning right-wing and pro-Israel activists personal profiles and pages.
“We’re being heavily censored on @Facebook. Our last 9 posts are reaching 0 of our 3 million followers. At least two videos were deleted last night for ‘hate speech’ including our recent video with @ConservativeMillen,” PragerU tweeted on Friday.
“Facebook has responded and claims removing our videos was a “mistake.” Does anyone really believe this was simply a mistake?”, PragerU wrote on their Facebook page.
“Removing two videos, marking them as “hate speech” and then subsequently censoring over 15 of our following posts to reach 0 of our 3 million followers is not a mistake. It’s deliberate censorship of conservative ideas”, they added.
Twitter has barred right-wing journalist Alex Jones from posting on the social media site for one week after violating its policies.
The tweet (now deleted) that landed Jones in the seven-day penalty box said, “Alex Jones: Trump Must Take Action Against Web Censorship” and included a link to a Periscope live-video broadcast (which also is now unavailable).
Meanwhile, anyone else can offend the US president with impunity.
Conservative journalist Laura Loomer was removed from Facebook after questioning Jihadi congressional candidates in Minnesota.
Facebook’s censorship is systematically removing from our page pictures and videos they deem offensive –to Muslims, some of them even without warning or notification.
Twitter has been long ago censoring our tweets under the cover of ‘sensitive content’.
Facebook is requiring Facebook Pages with a “large audience” to verify their location or else they will be barred from publishing new posts, the company announced Friday.
Our Facebook Page admins received this alert.
They were forced to verify phone number, location, a two-step verification login and the blood of a virgin in order to continue posting on Behind the News.
