Crackdown: Twitter Suspend Libertarian Accounts Including Ron Paul Institute Director

The Crackdown Continues: Twitter Suspends Libertarian Accounts, Including Ron Paul Institute Director

One day after what appeared to be a coordinated attack by media giants Facebook, Apple, Spotify and Google on Alex Jones, whose various social media accounts were banned or suspended in a matter of hours, the crackdown against alternative media figures continued as several Libertarian figures, including the Ron Paul Institute director, found their Twitter accounts suspended.




On Monday, Twitter suspended the editorial director of antiwar.com Scott Horton, former State Department employee Peter Van Buren, and Dan McAdams, the executive director of the Ron Paul Institute.




Horton was reportedly disciplined for the use of "improper language" against journalist Jonathan M. Katz, he said in a brief statement, while McAdams was suspended for retweeting him, he said. Past tweets in both accounts were available to the public at the time of the writing, unlike the account of Van Buren, which was fully suspended.

According to TargetLiberty, Horton and McAdams fell victim of Twitter’s suspension algorithm after objecting to Katz’s quarrel with Van Buren over an earlier interview.








The suspensions come days after Twitter suspended black conservative Candace Owen from Twitter for highlighting the algorithmic hypocrisy of Twitter by replacing the word “white” with “Jewish” in a series of tweets modeled on those by New York Times editor Sarah Jeong.

just after controversial conservative Alex Jones, and his podcast InfoWars, were kicked out from most social media platforms, prompting conservative to accuse the social networks of collusion in a collective crackdown on non-mainstream voices. The Silicon Valley giants were criticized by the US political establishment for failing to prevent alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Meanwhile, critics now say the pressured media giants are engaging in political censorship, using their market dominance and lack of legislated neutrality requirements to target descent voices ahead of the midterm elections.

* * *

In a scathing op-ed on Tuesday, Nigel Farage wrote that "while many on the libertarian right and within the conservative movement have their issues with Alex Jones and InfoWars, this week’s announcement by YouTube, Facebook, Apple, and Spotify represents a concerted effort of proscription and censorship that could just as soon see any of us confined to the dustbin of social media history."
These platforms that claim to be “open” and in favor of “free speech” are now routinely targeting -- whether by human intervention or not -- the views and expressions of conservatives and anti-globalists.

This is why they no longer even fit the bill of “platforms.” They are publishers in the same way we regard news outlets as publishers. They may use more machine learning and automation, but their systems clearly take editorial positions. We need to hold them to account in the same way we do any other publisher.
Farage then accused social media giants of being corporatist:
That they cannot profess to be neutral, open platforms while being illiberal, dictatorial, and hiding behind the visage of a private corporation (which are more often than not in bed with governments around the world at the very highest levels).

This isn’t capitalism. It’s corporatism.
He concludes that the real interference in "US democracy" comes not from Russia, but from some of its most powerful corporations which now yield more power in some cases than the government itself: "This isn’t “liberal democracy” as they keep pretending. It’s autocracy."

"...for those that don’t take issue with the latest censorship of right-wingers by big social media -- unless we take a stand now, who knows where it could end."

Yep! Jones was just the first domino. I manage someone's FB, mostly their photos, and I had to put one up of a quote by Ron Paul embedded in a picture of him...stating his opinion on war versus peace. Got a pop-up warning message that it was "Fake News."

I love libertarian Scott Horton's podcast shows of interviews with former CIA analysts, spies and others. I love reading Justin Raimondo and I watch Daniel McAdams live commentary show with Ron Paul on current events. McAdams is a mild talker—not at all a bully or a buffoon like Jones. Men of peace being banned.

I love all those guys.

Corporatist govt = fascism.

Ya' know the Mussolini and National Socialist govt of Germany models circa the 1930s.

Let's see how they create barriers to entry to this social media market. I'll bet it began with getting seed money from the CIA who needs to have these for intel purposes. Meanwhile telecom companies hand over our private info to the state too. Police state.

I don't see the point of twitter. Other than providing entertainment via our Glorious Leader, it's more or less a useless platform.

Seems to me that twitter more than any other platform is the one full of spam accounts, bot accounts, ads, and garbage you could get on any other platform. Plus people are anonymous there so most all the bottom of the barrel behavior lives there. Not sure why anyone would use it.

I haven't looked at Twitter a lot, but the ones I have seen, linked from sites I follow, usually has the persons name.

None for nothing, if the CIA is using Facebook for intel gathering, don’t they want guys like Alex Jones and his followers on Facebook so they can be tracked?

If twitter is a CIA front, then why the **** do any of you care? Don't use the platform.

THEY'RE A CIA FRONT! Why the **** would you use a platform that's seeded with Deepstate money that serves to gather data for the CIA?

What the **** is wrong with you hypocrites?

And yet here's BEP, the biggest hypocrite of them all bitching and complaining...

So why the outrage? Why would any of you god-fearing conservatives want to use this platform when it represents everything you hate? Deepstate, CIA, communism, liberalism.

Help me understand why any of you want to associate with this?
