Censorship and the Battle for Freedom
Social media like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or tech giants like Google have heavily censored things they don’t like and leave up things that really are bad. It’s censorship that is destroying the fabric of America…and it’s a battle for freedom. They are doing it in the name of “safety” because we need to be protected from free speech. Now even companies who do web hosting are getting in on the censorship train.
We’ve already written about Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children being deleted, and the 559 other pages and nearly 300 accounts that were ripped from their places in an attempt to make us all look like “bad actors” and extremists. But it hasn’t stopped there.
War against Christianity
LifeSite News, a well respected Christian website, was told to find another web host or face being off line indefinitely.
In an update made following the original statement, LifeSite added, “Our web developer was up all night implementing temporary measures to keep our site online even if our current web-hosting company followed through on its threat to shut down our services. We are extremely grateful for his hard work on a Saturday night. However, this is only a temporary solution. We are currently looking for a web-hosting company that will not cave to threats of this kind.”
On its website, LifeSite describes itself as a “non-profit Internet service dedicated to issues of culture, life, and family,” launched by the pro-life Campaign Life Coalition in 1997, which “emphasizes the social worth of traditional Judeo-Christian principles but is also respectful of all authentic religions and cultures that esteem life, family and universal norms of morality.”
War against competition?
GAB, an alternative social media, is now offline, and they may not come back because the entire site has been labelled “racist.” Why? Because Robert Bowers, the Synagogue shooter posted his hateful anti-Semitic, anti-Trump views in it, according to Time. So the entire site was taken down…think about it.
War against history
Blue Lives Matter reported that former FBI counter-terrorism agent John Guandolo’s Twitter account was suspended because he blamed the Democrats for their hateful, violent rhetoric. He simply reminded people that the KKK was Democrat started, and the Nazi’s were LEFTISTS (the National Socialist Worker’s Party). He spoke the truth.
John commented to us that it was “merely one battle in a much larger war.”
Keep in mind that Twitter left up Louis Farrakhan’s comment that he’s not “anti-Semitic, he’s anti-termite.” Referring to Jews as “termites” isn’t hate speech? They claimed their new rules hadn’t been implemented when he tweeted that. But they took down John’s Twitter account… the double standard is ridiculous.
Remember that James Woods’ Twitter account was suspended for a while over an innocuous post? James Woods is one of the most popular Conservatives on the social site. They finally gave his profile back after an uproar. It should never have been removed in the first place.
Friends, if you don’t find danger lurking in these actions, it’s time to wake up. Will we be unable to express ourselves to more than a handful of friends at once because of the collusion of tech giants and internet companies? The social media/internet technology that allowed us to communicate to the masses has become something out of George Orwell’s novel. #VoteRed
