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."

Whining about rep is bad form but no it was meant only to be a comment. I get them good and bad too, and you don't see me whining. Gawd Hoopsdoc you are such a wimp. No wonder you're only at 50-60% with the wife.

On the other hand pat pissed me off.

This is a myth. You like to hide behind the rep system and there's no reason anyone else should keep your secret.

Strawman.

That was humor, kitten, not whining.

Laura Ingraham has Roger Stone on about BIG Tech & New Corporate Censorship

Some good stuff but I don't agree with Stone on regulating these platforms as a public utility. He's always been kind of an odd libertarian to me. Though he does raise a good point about how Twitter is in breach of it's contract with him, as they agreed to promote his tweets and then didn't. He plans to sue them over it.

Former CIA Whistleblower, Dr. Michael, Scheuer's site Non Intervention, has been completely removed from the web too.

Well at least I can still watch him on the John Frederick's show.

It happened.

You can ignore the shit or just read the beginning of the thread or check out the claim in the OP using google though.

I guess it's too much for a hillbilly though.

But that won't stop me from mocking Qanonpillowbiters who cry about these "CIA fronts" while at the same time pleaing badly to use them. That shit is hilarious.
I could see you were being a wiseass, but I have to fish to see how sincere your comments were. Yanno people often hide true feelings behind snark. I can't be positive without asking. Not on the internet, where all kinds of people believe all kinds of crazy shit.

The collusion and censorship of social media is an issue I think is pretty important, so I'm a little too serious. Carry on.

Both BuzzFeed and Breitbart reporting that You Tube will add fact checks to videos that question climate change, also to topics like UFA's, Oklahoma bombing etc.

This new feature follows YouTube’s announcement in March that it would place descriptions from Wikipedia and Encyclopedia Britannica next to such videos.

Soros funds Wikipedia now. It's gonna be like using CNN as a fact-checking source. Or Snopes already a joke claiming to be unbiased. Then there's that girl from SPLC hired as a fact checker for FB. ( or it may have been twitter) This is the thing with totalitarians, they don't think people are capable of doing their own thinking. They have to do it for them, because the technocrats know what's best for us.

Also Apple is going to monitor the AJ app. If they consider it harmful, which means harmful to their goals or if they disagree with it, they will ban that too.

The plans for this censorship campaign began under Obama. In fact right after the election in 2009 with the appt of Samantha Powers ( of unmasking fame) husband who is a communist over Information and Regulatory affairs. Netflix involved too.

I use Twitter to follow the NFL draft and to get updates from NFL training camp. There have been a few humorous profiles that I have followed. That's about it.

It’s actually above average. Well, maybe not here on Chiefsplanet.
