Big Tech Election Meddling: Censoring Conservatives Right Before Election Day

In case you had any questions about whose side Big Tech is on in the upcoming midterms, the wave of censorship silencing conservative voices will make the answer to those questions obvious: They’re for the Democrats.

While a significant number of conservative organizations and individuals have found themselves “de-platformed” or banned from various web services and social media platforms three stand out as particularly egregious Laura Loomer Maxine Watersexamples of Big Tech’s arbitrary and capricious censorship.

The first is, on October 18, Twitter locked LifeSiteNews out of their Twitter account over an article they posted four years previously that provided expert analysis on the rise in sexually-transmitted diseases among homosexuals.

The 2014 piece by Dr. Gerard M. Nadal, a molecular biologist and microbiologist who is also president and CEO of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer, responds to media coverage of what was at the time the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s new annual report on STDs.

Dr. Nadal cited data from mainstream sources such as the CDC, a then-recent New York Times report, and a 2006 study in the journal AIDS Behavior.

On October 18, 2018, however, LifeSiteNews received the following message, notifying staff that Twitter was locking the account because the 2014 tweet sharing the story’s neutral, factual headline violated “our rules against hateful conduct,” and somehow “promote[d] violence against, threaten[ed], or harass[ed] other people on the basis of [...] sexual orientation [...], or serious disease."

No further elaboration was given. A length of time for the lockout was not specified. The only recourse offered was for LifeSite to remove the tweet or start an appeal process. For the moment, LifeSite staff was unable to post to or otherwise operate @LifeSite in any way.

“This total intolerance for even reporting government health dept statistics that reveal the health dangers of homosexual activity betrays what Peter Thiel, himself a homosexual, previously called a totalitarian mindset in Silicon Valley,” said Steve Jalsevac, co-founder and president of LifeSiteNews.

“Twitter is now trying to force news agencies to report only what is acceptable to their personal, biased views and shutting down balanced, factual reporting on the homosexual issue.”

“This is getting dangerous for our democracy since a free press is one of the basic and necessary foundations for a genuinely democratic society,” Jalsevac warned. “This is getting scary. It is in everyone’s interest to fight this type of action and even demand government intervention to protect our rights.”

Twitter ultimately backed down and unlocked LifeSiteNews’ Twitter account less than 24 hours after claiming a factual analysis of homosexual health data was “hateful conduct.” Their decision to unlock the @LifeSite account came after a massive backlash online during which more than 7,500 LifeSite supporters signed a petition demanding the account be restored.

Two other significant conservative voices have not been so fortunate.

John Guandolo, whose website and YouTube channels are required reading for anyone wishing to understand the threat Islam poses to constitutional liberty and the political and cultural relationship between the Far Left and Islam that we call “The Red – Green Axis.”

Guandolo is a 1989 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy who took a commission as an Officer in the United States Marine Corps. He served with 2d Battalion 2d Marines as an Infantry Platoon Commander in combat Operations Desert Shield/Storm. From 1991-1996, he served in 2d Force Reconnaissance Company as a Platoon Commander, Assistant Operations Officer, and the unit’s Airborne and Diving Officer.

During his time in 2d Force Reconnaissance Company, he also deployed to the Adriatic/Bosnia. He served for one year as the Unit Leader for the CINC’s In-Extremis Force, directly reporting to a Combatant Commander in a classified mission profile. Mr. Guandolo was a combat diver, military free-fall parachutist, and a graduate of the U.S. Army Ranger School.

In other words, Guandolo has seen the elephant, he knows what he’s talking about, and it’s not just book-learning.

The Twitter ban is especially outrageous since Guandolo has been the subject of an ongoing campaign of threats and Antifa and Muslim-inspired violence, including threats of violence against his lecture venues and campaigns of vilification against organizations and individuals that have invited him to speak.

These threats of violence, conducted through social media, have resulted in numerous cancellations and venue shuffles, but no action by Big Tech against the individuals and organizations behind them. Even worse, Guandolo has not been given any appeal or other information about what he needs to do or how he can get his Twitter channel and thousands of followers back.

Even more outrageous is Twitter’s ban of independent journalist Laura Loomer.

Ms. Loomer, a former reporter for our friends at Project Veritas and Rebel Media has an uncanny ability to unsettle Far Left figures by showing up and asking the kind of incisive questions the establishment media refuses to ask.

Her takedown of Muslim woman-beater and Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee Rep. Keith Ellison was a tour d’force of the kind of journalism that old-time reporters like ABC’s Sam Donaldson used to do – only Loomer does it to Democrats and liberals. Loomer’s persistent questioning caused Ellison to abandon several of his own events, looking like a deer in the headlights as he ran for his car.

Ms. Loomer also chased “get in their faces” Rep. Maxine Waters down the hall while persistently, but politely asking her about her comments encouraging people to harass Trump supporters. Waters of course refused to answer once she figured out Loomer was not a liberal hack and after pushing Loomer’s camera (and it looks to us like Loomer herself) Waters ducked into a “Members Only” elevator to escape. While Loomer didn’t get any answers to her questions, the visuals she got of Waters are expressions of pure evil and archive material for anyone looking to illustrate the soul of the modern radical Democratic Party.

Loomer’s latest target is the Democrats’ corrupt candidate for Governor of Florida, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum. Gillum is counting on the reliable Democratic votes of Broward County, many of whom are Jewish, to put him over the top. Loomer, who is Jewish, was there along with Jacob Engels of the Central Florida Post to ask him about his anti-Semitic associations and statements.

Loomer staked-out Gillum at Temple Kol Ami in Plantation, Florida to question him, but was ejected from the synagogue by Gillum campaign operatives before she could ask him any questions.

After being removed, Loomer spoke to Big League Politics to decry the actions of the Gillum campaign.

As a Jewish woman, she said, she was infuriated at being removed from a place of worship for her faith:

“As a Jewish American woman, today’s events that took place inside the Synagogue deeply disturbed me,” Loomer stated. “I was removed  for who I am, a Jewish conservative woman. It reminded me of the times in Nazi Germany when people like my Grandfather were arrested for being Jews.”

She then gave a warning to Jewish Floridians about Gillum:

“If one thing is clear to me today, it is that Hitler is reincarnated, and he is reincarnated as a black man running for governor of Florida, and his name is Andrew Gillum. To the Jews in Florida, you have been warned. Vote for Ron DeSantis.”

Not too long after getting tossed from the Gillum event, and just a week before the election, Loomer was suddenly banned from Twitter, for, get this, until the day after the election.

Loomer, who has gotten five Drudge headlines this year said the social media site had suspended her account until next week, after the 2018 midterms will be over.

“Over the last few months, we have all seen and experienced first hand the liberal bias of Big Tech social media companies like Twitter and Facebook,” Ms. Loomer wrote, later adding: “Conservatives like myself are being silenced and censored by Big Tech. There is nowhere for Conservatives to go. We are being banned online in the middle of the midterm elections simply because we are conservative. Put simply, this is ELECTION MEDDLING.”

Totalitarian censorship

Wikipedia describes totalitarianism: "Political power in totalitarian states has often involved rule by one leader and an all-encompassing propaganda campaign, which is disseminated through the state-controlled mass media and are often marked by political repression, personality cultism, control over the economy and restriction of speech, mass surveillance and widespread use of state terrorism."

This is who the Left/Deep State are and the Fourth Estate is their propaganda arm.

Then DO SOMETHNG about it

Social media (or other) platforms - Facebook, Twitter, or any others - that have shown bias against conservative views CAN BE REPLACED. We have the same access to technology and have the benefit of knowing what works and what we like in terms of function and features. Just as we did with direct mail, it's time to turn the tide in how our messages are delivered and deal a blow to the companies that are working against us, by speaking with our wallets. Facebook is already down 30%; let's see if we can't push Zuch's earnings down a bit further. #aboutface!
