We Must Stop Big Tech's Stifling of the 1st Amendment!

Adriana Cohen on

Bravo to podcast star Joe Rogan for encouraging his millions of followers on biased Twitter to join him on Gettr, an alternate social media network, in response to Twitter banning Dr. Robert Malone, a scientist and contributor to mRNA vaccine technology, GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and virtually anyone who strays from its left-wing political ideology.

Regardless of if one agrees with Malone's or Greene's controversial statements, we've got a serious problem in America today when Twitter allows the supreme leader of Iran -- a designated state sponsor of terror by the U.S. State Department since 1984 -- to have an account, but not a former president, an American scientist and an elected member of Congress.

In fact, on Wednesday, Jan. 5, Ayatollah Khamenei tweeted threats of violence against former President Donald Trump and presumably members of his former administration. "Martyr Soleimani is an eternal reality that will live on forever. His assassins - including Trump & the likes - will disappear in history's garbage bin, but of course after receiving retribution in this world for the crime they committed, God willing." So, according to Twitter, the leader of a terror state can threaten to "disappear" a former U.S. president and threaten retribution against him and other U.S. citizens and that's A-OK, but Americans who do not threaten violence, they simply express alternate points of view or controversial opinions, are jettisoned from the platform.

Let that sink in.

Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms -- run by rabid left-wing political activists and biased "fact-checkers" -- pretend they're not politically biased and are just censoring "misinformation" on their networks is comical considering how disproportionally and aggressively it targets, silences and de-platforms conservatives en masse, while giving a pass to the left.

If you recall, Twitter and Facebook relentlessly "fact-checked" Donald Trump's social media posts while he was president before banning the leader of the free world entirely in January 2020 for missives they didn't like, but they don't bother to fact-check, censor or ban malicious lies and "misinformation" spread by Democrats. The debunked "Russia collusion hoax" conspiracy theory disseminated by left-wing legacy media outlets and liberal politicians, including Hillary Clinton and Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., are one glaring example.

 

Why do those documented liars who trafficked the yearslong Russia, Russia, Russia conspiracy theories still have their social media accounts but not Trump, many of his supporters and other conservative members of Congress?

Ballotpedia, the nonpartisan political encyclopedia, published a tally of elected members of Congress who've either been suspended or banned by Twitter, Facebook or YouTube to date. The list includes Reps. Jim Banks, Briscoe Cain, Marjorie Taylor Greene and Barry Moore; and Sens. Ron Johnson, Rand Paul and aforementioned Trump. Now add Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who was also wrongfully censored and locked out of his Twitter reelection campaign account in August 2019 for allegedly violating its arbitrary "terms of service."

What do all these elected government officials have in common? Surprise! They're all Republicans. Not a single Democrat politician made the list.

You don't say ...
