Big Tech always preaches about treating people equally, but they never do. Funny how their “algorithms” never seem to suspend liberals’ accounts. The religion of Inclusion is a fraud. As I write this, my organization’s Twitter account (@LifeHasPurpose) has been suspended for 15 days for violating their cardinal rule—don’t tweet the truth.
On April 13th we responded to Representative Ilhan Omar’s (D) outrageous diminishment of 9-11, in a speech to CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) as “some people did something.” (FYI: CAIR has been designated as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates.) Twitter absurdly accused us of “hateful conduct” for these words: “She describes an act of war as ‘some people did something’? #IlhanOmar is not a victim. The 2,980 Americans who were slaughtered by Muslim terrorists were the victims. American Muslims lost no more civil liberties than we ALL did after #September11 thanks to the #PatriotAct.”
I didn’t realize historical revisionism was part of Twitter’s mission statement. As with all things “progressive”, they look at the world in an inverted way. Instead of seeing the terrorism as the “hateful conduct”, they deemed a tweet denouncing terrorism as “hateful conduct.” This clueless censorship happens during a time when yet another terrorist attack, perpetrated by Islamic terrorists via ISIS, slaughtered 250 lives — Christians attacked while worshipping Easter. Oh, wait, I mean Jesus.
This targeted censorship is just the beginning. My colleague, E.W. Jackson, the outspoken former Virginia Senate candidate, had his Twitter account deactivated on the same day as mine. Hollywood actor James Woods, who has 2.1 million followers, had his account deactivated on April 20th. It looks like our accounts are still active, but we’re all locked out of them, so we can’t tweet, interact, or do anything while the self-proclaimed titans of tolerance decide our fate.
It’s no secret. Twitter applies its “rules of conduct” unequally. How many liberals decry having their Twitter accounts suspended? None. Well, unless they defy the pseudoscience of LGBT activism. A hardcore “feminist” named Meghan Murphy dared to buck Twitter’s protections for #LGBTQXYZ. She tweeted a basic scientific fact: “Women aren’t men.” Her account has been permanently suspended.
Yet Farrakhan — whose virulent racism and anti-Semitism — is allowed to spread his repulsive rhetoric. Twitter, apparently, isn’t repulsed. Farrakhan’s tweet, “I’m not anti-Semite. I’m anti-termite.” and many other actual hate-filled words remain untouched on his unsuspended account.
Twitter’s supposed appeal process is a sham, too. We’ve submitted five appeals. Although their auto-responder claims it may take up to a few days to respond, they’ve never responded. Big Tech is out of common folks’ reach. They’re too important to allow contact with an actual human. Free speech and democracy? Not on their watch.
They’re too insecure in their worldview to be challenged with facts by those outside the Silicon Valley bubble of omniscience.
Welcome to this not-so-brave new world, where Big Tech largely controls the flow of information, use of pronouns, and how expansively “hate” is defined.
This is dangerous. Where are all the alleged “civil rights” groups on this blatant discrimination? They’re silent on this rampant censorship, because it’s their leftist ideology that’s being protected. These same “progressives” demanded that a baker from Colorado had to be “Open to All” and serve everyone and every event. Yet the world’s largest public platforms flaunt their separate and unequal treatment and denial of services to online users every single day. It’s Jim Crow 2.0.
Out of principle, I’m not deleting the tweet (we’ve been shadow-banned for years anyway). I have no hate for Muslims. I have no hate for Rep. Ilhan Omar. I hate a lie. It’s why my wife and I created the Radiance Foundation — to illuminate the truth about the human condition and declare that every human life has purpose. Facebook, Google, Twitter and Apple — they’re totalitarian tech. This is all just a pre-game show. They’re merely ramping up for the 2020 elections, purging what they’re bogusly calling “misinformation” and “extremism” to clear the Democrats’ path of ideological obstacles. They’ll continue to widen their “hate speech” nets to the point where the only thing that slips through are their own intolerant words in a sea of fake diversity.
