Big Tech is known for acting out of political bias but it’s getting more evident by the day. As Big Tech faces an antitrust battle in Congress, they continue to censor and silence conservatives in favor of the ‘woke mob’ and radical left.
Social media platform Twitter suspended Mike Davis for the third time in less than six months over a tweet that called out President Joe Biden’s lawless border policies. They write that the tweet violates their rules on hateful conduct and “promotes violence” on the basis of race, ethnicity, and national orientation. At this point, Twitter is censoring and silencing anyone who expresses an “unapproved” opinion on the platform.
“This is the third time Twitter has wrongly suspended me for a completely innocuous tweet. It’s no coincidence Big Tech is attempting to silence one of their biggest critics as they work to kill bipartisan legislation to rein in their monopoly power. Twitter’s censors are completely shameless and will stop at nothing to quell political opposition to their abusive and anticompetitive practices,” Davis wrote.
Davis called it his “third baseless suspension” in six months and said this is more evidence of Big Tech’s unlimited power to control the political debate. He’d tweeted that Joe Biden is making it easier for illegal immigrants to commit crimes and harder to stop them. He isn’t wrong…
But Twitter bounced back against the political backlash and quickly called the suspension a ‘mistake,’ which Davis called a lie. He pointed to other Twitter suspensions he’d received in the previous months and said it was a targeted campaign to ‘silence their foes.’ He demanded that Big Tech be cut down to size.
Other suspensions include the time Davis mocked Big Tech for suspending a Big Tech critic who compared CNN’s Brian Stelter to “the gimp,” referenced in the Pulp Fiction movie and a tweet that demanded law enforcement to prosecute all those who engage in political violence, specifically Black Lives Matter and Antifa members.
Twitter tried to prevent Davis from using his account indefinitely after the first ban, though it was quickly reversed, and only suspended his account for twelve hours the second time.
Twitter also said they “mistakingly” censored a viral thread from Tami Burages, a woman who says her 13-year-old nephew died after receiving a second dose of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine. A spokesperson claimed that the account had been locked “in error” and that it has been reinstated.
“Our family is devastated. I struggled with putting this out on Twitter. I am pro-vaccine. We vaccinated my own 14-year-old son as soon as it was available. I know it is *mostly safe*. But Jacob is dead now,” Burages said.
Burages said she believes the vaccine is saving millions of lives but that there are moral, ethical, and health questions to be answered. She called on the Center for Disease Control & Prevention to investigate.
National File editor-in-chief Tom Pappert also criticized Twitter for censoring his website’s report about the story. He said it was unfortunate that Big Tech was attempting to prevent the family from sharing its truth and concerns about the COVID-19 vaccine only days after the boy’s death.
“Twitter’s censorship here is as repugnant as it is ridiculous. National File does not publish medical misinformation. We published a report containing direct quotes from a woman who – using Twitter – expressed concern about the death of her 13-year-old nephew, Jacob Clynick, which occurred after he received the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. It appears Twitter is attempting to censor news outlets for the crime of reporting on the concerns of a recently bereaved family member,” Pappert wrote.
Funny how conservatives are often ‘mistakenly’ censored but never liberals. People have continued to push the vaccine onto kids, even though kids are rarely (if ever) dying from COVID-19. We’ve known for quite some time now that kids aren’t getting it or spreading it. Why jab them with an experimental vaccine over a minuscule chance of dying from it? Oh right, that’s not where the money is.
