It’s happening… the purge of social media is astounding and began last night when Twitter systematically erased every account associated with President Donald Trump and Facebook joined in, deleting conservative voices.
Labeling his content as subversive to the interests of the new totalitarian state, Twitter has announced their permanent deletion of Donald Trump’s Twitter account because of how his tweets can be “perceived and interpreted.”
“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.” (link)
Consider their statement carefully because, in essence, Big Tech is banning the voice of President Donald Trump because they claim it may generate wrong think amid others. The Twitter statement continues using these two Tweets as justification for the ban:
[Via Twitter] “We assessed the two Tweets referenced above under our Glorification of Violence policy, which aims to prevent the glorification of violence that could inspire others to replicate violent acts and determined that they were highly likely to encourage and inspire people to replicate the criminal acts that took place at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.”
“This determination is based on a number of factors, including”:
- President Trump’s statement that he will not be attending the Inauguration is being received by a number of his supporters as further confirmation that the election was not legitimate and is seen as him disavowing his previous claim made via two Tweets (1, 2) by his Deputy Chief of Staff, Dan Scavino, that there would be an “orderly transition” on January 20th.
- The second Tweet may also serve as encouragement to those potentially considering violent acts that the Inauguration would be a “safe” target, as he will not be attending.
- The use of the words “American Patriots” to describe some of his supporters is also being interpreted as support for those committing violent acts at the US Capitol.
- The mention of his supporters having a “GIANT VOICE long into the future” and that “They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!” is being interpreted as further indication that President Trump does not plan to facilitate an “orderly transition” and instead that he plans to continue to support, empower, and shield those who believe he won the election.
- Plans for future armed protests have already begun proliferating on and off-Twitter, including a proposed secondary attack on the US Capitol and state capitol buildings on January 17, 2021.
“As such, our determination is that the two Tweets above are likely to inspire others to replicate the violent acts that took place on January 6, 2021, and that there are multiple indicators that they are being received and understood as encouragement to do so.” (link to statement)
The justification itself is so bizarre it is Orwellian in nature. Interpreting the thoughts of a person to determine their violation…. Good grief, you cannot get much more twisted and subjective than that. This is an alarming statement and directly indicates the Big Tech systems will now define subversive activity.
President Trump sent the following response from his POTUS account, which Twitter quickly took down – (but not until we captured it).
This effort will backfire, bigly. The rebel alliance will only gain in strength as the technocrats attempt to create these control mechanisms.
Consider this move an inflection point in history.
JoeBama is even more weak now than before.
Extreme control efforts are a reaction to extreme fear. If the left-wing political elements who control most social media platforms were not fearful they would not be taking such aggressive action. Today Brandon Straka announces his #WalkAway group has been removed from Facebook and deplatformed.
The “Walk Away” movement was an organization of voices of former Democrats who turned away from the extreme leftist moves by the democrat party. The group was supportive of President Trump and the populist ‘America First’ message.
This move comes after Joe Biden called President Trump supporters “domestic terrorists” and announced his administration’s intent to target those voices as members of an insurrection against his administration. An alarming move to a totalitarian state where dissenting voices must be silenced and removed.
[Wall Street Journal] “Don’t dare call them protesters,” Mr. Biden said in remarks from Wilmington, Del. “They were a riotous mob. Insurrectionists. Domestic terrorists. It’s that basic. It’s that simple.”
Mr. Biden blamed President Trump for inciting the violence, saying he had “unleashed an all-out assault on our institutions of democracy.” The White House didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
[…] Mr. Biden has said he plans to make a priority of passing a law against domestic terrorism, and he has been urged to create a White House post overseeing the fight against ideologically inspired violent extremists and increasing funding to combat them. (read more)
Additionally, there is currently a massive “pro-Trump” purge happening on Twitter. They even banned Tech Fog, a CTH friend who was never controversial, always careful, and only posted court documents highlighting legal cases involving corruption.
Axios– Reddit has banned the subreddit group “r/DonaldTrump,” a spokesperson confirmed to Axios.
Why it matters: While not an official group or page hosted by the president, it’s one of the company’s largest political communities dedicated to support for President Trump.
What they’re saying: “Reddit’s site-wide policies prohibit content that promotes hate, or encourages, glorifies, incites, or calls for violence against groups of people or individuals. In accordance with this, we have been proactively reaching out to moderators to remind them of our policies and to offer support or resources as needed,” a spokesperson tells Axios.
- “We have also taken action to ban the community r/donaldtrump given repeated policy violations in recent days regarding the violence at the U.S. Capitol.”
The big picture: It’s the latest in a string of platforms to take action against Trump’s accounts following the historic pro-Trump riot at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. (LINK)
The massive deplatforming and removal is unprecedented in scale. The movement by WordPress/Automattic to deplatform CTH shocked many in the media when it happened to us the week after the election.
In the aftermath of CTH being deplatformed we received many notifications of support and shocked messages from inside the tech industry. In recent days those same voices have signaled that CTH was likely a coordinated first-strike that previewed this post election wave to shut down voices of dissent.
These are remarkable times. Stand strong in fellowship… now people are starting to realize why CTH strongly advocated for unity of assembly in the last six months.
There are more of us than them. The Big Tech oligarchs who control the system are trying to shut down communication amid the dissenting voices that demand liberty and freedom. This is a strategic effort in the battle for our nation.
More to come….
They are not trying to silence Donald Trump, they are attempting to silence all American voices of dissent.
That’s the scale of the 2020 election controversy. https://t.co/Ra57bn5Fmy

Lol – there goes another 1,000 in one second … 8,500 followers now gone in 24 hours.
This is happening to all Conservative accounts. James Wood’s tweeted about it and has lost way more.
This must be Twitter’s new plan … just erase us.
Starting to feel like China.

(1/2) Part of text I just sent to media person: “In the past, when citizens of a Republic lose faith in their ability to guide the destiny of their country via the election process, they have been FORCED by that country’s rulers into a box and FORCED to chose from any of

(2/2) 3 bad options:
1. Flee (emigrate).
3. Fight back with violence.
THAT is why we must fight for honest & accurate elections.
We don’t ever want citizens in America feeling they have been forced into the aforesaid box, with 3 bad options.”

This will be my final post on this anti-American platform. The greatest threats to liberty are the destructive tech tyrants who have acted as publishers in their ongoing wars on conservatives & free speech.
You can find me on Parler, where we respect free speech. I’m “dbongino.”

The Republican Party, Democrat Party, Media, and especially Big Tech are turning President Donald J. Trump into a living Martyr and hero of the people, right now …
– And they're just too arrogant, out-of-touch, and just plain stupid to realize it.
