After Trump’s win, Twitter bans right-wingers, and Facebook targets “fake news”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Countless right wing Twitter accounts have just been shut down by that company and its social justice warrior CEO, Jack Dorsey. 

Now, of course, Twitter is a private company, even if it is rather like a public utility, like a phone company. It has terms of service. And those terms of service say that Twitter users can’t threaten violence or stalk people.

But Twitter cut off people who were not breaking their terms of service, or being threatening or violent in any way.

They are simply right wing.

It would be like a cell phone company cutting off your phone because you were talking about right wing things. Just saying things Jack Dorsey and his significant shareholder, Saudi Prince Al Waleed, don’t like.

We’ve shown you before how pervasive this left-wing censorship is at Google, Facebook, and of course, Twitter. And they were all in for Clinton, and now she’s gone.

And the other new thing is “fake news”: That means any news that liberals don’t like will be banned. They don’t mean, say, NBC faking news with Brian Williams, or CBS faking news with Dan Rather, or when CNN leaked debate questions in advance to Hillary Clinton.

It took Jack Dorsey precisely one week to get over his sadness about losing, and move to his next stage: anger. To ban and smash and censor. To do precisely all the things he said he was so worried Trump will do.

NEXT: Pax Dickinson, Founder & CTO at Wesearchr, talks about being one of the "alt right" users whose Twitter account was shut down.

THEN: National Post columnist and author Barbara Kay about the Liberals' funding of UNRWA.

FINALLY: You might remember actor Adam Goldberg as the Jewish soldier in the movie "Saving Private Ryan." Well, he's joined the ranks of celebrities with Trump Derangement Syndrome — so I couldn't resist responding to one of his particularly obnoxious tweets...

@peter Netterville…When I am competing on the range people offer me bug repellant for the mosquitos but I decline. DEET makes me sick and I hate getting it in my eyes when I sweat which is bound to happen in a Creedmore shooting jacket. People marvel at how I manage to ignore the mosquitos….but they don’t go away…and the ones that land on the microphones of my headset make it necessary to turn off the sound when I take a shot. The left arm of my jacket has a zipper running on the inside of the elbow to make it easier to flex your arm when you switch from skeet to position shooting and when I left Gagetown this summer I had a bite pattern that looked like heroin addiction. When I get home I find that gin and tonic keeps them at bay as effectively as DEET…so apparently ignoring them doesn’t work…but they do go away when you get drunk and raise an offensive stink……:-)

I doubt Trudope is bright enough to realize what is going on. Dollars to donuts Gerald Butts is feeling uncomfortable right now.

WretchedEarth you show your distaste for the Rebel by , well using the Rebel. IDIOT!

Fake news …like Reuters?

Ezra Levant shows his distaste for Twitter by, well… still using Twitter. #Imbecile
commented 2016-11-18 02:07:23 -0500
I would ban you right now .

Strange—- I don’t hate the Jews — …. but I sure as fuck don’t like the fucking Muslims .

If Face Book and Twitter cut off the Right Leaning sites, hundreds of thousands of people would be out of work. Stefen Molyneux of Freedomain suggests they could put him under also. However he hinted that there may be an alternative coming up. He could be an interesting guest for Ezra. (Both in Toronto)

With respect to UNWRA consistent with the pattern whereby what the Liberals do as far as policy is undo whatever Harper and the Conservatives did.

You guys do realize, don’t you, that you are just feeding Moderate Lib what he craves? attention.
Should you really be feeding the filth what he wants? Just askin’
commented 2016-11-17 23:22:43 -0500
Moderate. You should seriously stop now. It’s becoming increasingly apparent that you have some serious psychological issues, and you need help. That’s not sarcasm.
So often we don’t notice the signs until it’s too late, but I see them in you now, before it’s too late. You’re so full of rage and twisted ideology you’ll go off the deep end. If you continue sir I have no choice but to bring you to the attention of authorities!

I hope Trump doesn’t “Harper out” and do nothing about the censorship – like Harper did nothing about CBC. Conservative politicians are too meek. It’s a little ironic to say the least that the Gov would have to intervene to KEEP freedom of speech, rather than interfere with it, as is more often the case.

I think Ezra Levant deserves The Order of Canada or maybe The Order of Merit.
commented 2016-11-17 22:56:22 -0500
He’s not that smart unlike the rest of you. Just wanted to make sure he knew.
commented 2016-11-17 22:55:36 -0500
Oh, hateful = moderate libertarian
commented 2016-11-17 22:50:27 -0500
Boooring hateful. I couldn’t be bothered to translate your post because you’re so predictable. Let me guess: Ezra bad, Rebel subscribers fake blind Nazis, Trump evil, religion bad, oil evil, eff you all for logically refuting my arguments and desire for cruise ship sinking while claiming to be full of love.

You will now tell me to eff off (see love) or pretend to ignore me while trying to rile up other commenters because it is the only source of joy in your life (unlike music, hobbies, loving and making other people happy).

Now hateful, do everything I say in 3…2…1…
commented 2016-11-17 22:43:44 -0500
Moderate you do realize that your insults mean nothing since you are a 40 year old virgin living in moms basement.
commented 2016-11-17 22:41:57 -0500
Don’t use either of them.
commented 2016-11-17 22:09:08 -0500
Moderate would you please quit pretending you know anything in another language..
Now you say you want him to choke on your dick and P on his dress right shame on you…!!
commented 2016-11-17 22:02:25 -0500
I must be hanging out with the wrong crew. I do not see all this Jew hatred. I do see this wearisome Charade as being over blown when it comes to Muslim Love.
commented 2016-11-17 21:49:17 -0500
HATE is one helluva thing—- Especially , when it is legislated -that you don’t have any.
commented 2016-11-17 21:44:50 -0500
How does anyone that moronic become the PM? A name? Don’t worry about money, the budget will balance itself. "That’s disgusting ". I’m changing my name. Donald needs some solid prayers like the ones that got him elected. It’s the only way to defeat evil.
commented 2016-11-17 21:20:08 -0500
What these goose-steppers do on Twitter and Facebook means pretty much less than zero at this poit.

Twitter and facebook are done, these Jurassic social media self destructed on corporate fascist censorship and their trading numbers show it.

Besides, these sites are sandboxes for intellectual infantile paralysis – only single digit IQs use them – and of course the NSA/CIA/FBI and every other control freak spook. Reddit, Gab, ello – lots of free alternatives – that’s the beauty of free market dynamics, you vote with your patronage.
commented 2016-11-17 21:04:44 -0500
- Twitter & Facebook are reminding Trump supporters why they voted for Trump in the first place. There’s now a market for a social media site that doesn’t censor people. I hope to see the day where Twitter, Facebook & pals are swept into the “where are they now” trash can of history.

- Maybe the Trump administration will have to declare the Liberals a terrorist organization at some point. They’re running up Canada’s debt by how much? I guess if you want a seat on the UN Security Council you have to throw some taxpayer money to some terrorist groups. Disgusting.

- The Democratic crybullies are still in complete meltdown mode more than a week after the election. They’re agonizing over every decision Trump makes, no matter how big or small. More than anything else, they’re setting themselves up for more losses in the 2018 midterm elections & likely for 2020 as well. They’ve been doubling down on the idiocy that drove people into the Trump camp in the first place.

The oxymoronic name, moderate libertarian, has learned how to use a translation app. Therefore thinking he is doing something unique by posting a translation, but to be fair all jr. high kids think they are unique.

It never occurred to me before, but are there any Jews in the PMO? I wonder if JT’s anti-Semitic taxpayer donation to UNRWA was met with any kind of contentious input from his close personal minions. I’m sure there must be some people in his inner circle that are Jewish, or at least not anti-Israel. No?
commented 2016-11-17 20:53:36 -0500
It must be so disappointing for Justin, to realize that he is being Manipulated and is Not quite the Visionary that he imagines himself to BE.

I don’t like people that HATE me. I Love the fact— that they don’t have unfettered access to POOR peoples taxes —any more.
commented 2016-11-17 20:27:33 -0500
Not a problem canceling Facebook and Twitter accounts as well any other left wing loving media. If they can’t at least be balanced on both sides of the political spectrum then they get zero support from me.

People should simply stop using Twitter. I survive nicely without a cell phone constantly in my pocket
