How Twitter is censoring conservatives like Milo Yiannopoulos

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Milo Yiannopoulos is a conservative-libertarian writer and pundit and larger than life character.

On Friday, Twitter took away the little blue checkmark that said Milo was “verified." I have a little verified checkmark too, as do many media types or celebrities. That's how you can know you're reading, say, the real Donald Trump's tweets and not an impostor's.

Twitter said Milo had violated their rules and that if he didn't stop, he’d be shut down. So Milo and his followers pushed back. He got 20,000 new followers, and #JeSuisMilo became a top trending hashtag.

Twitter, Google, YouTube and Facebook have all announced that they will be censoring comments that they consider to be offensive — but always from a left-wing point of view.

It’s important that we fight against this kind of crony-capitalist censorship. Tonight, after the break, Milo himself joins us, via Skype from London, England.

Then TheRebel.media's Brian Lilley comes on to discuss his efforts to get basic information out of the Liberal government on their Syrian refugee plan.

He's getting stonewalled, even though he's filed Access to Information requests, which by law must be answered by a certain time. So much for Justin Trudeau's promise of "transparency."


Finally, I read my viewer feedback, good and bad! Remember: Leave your comments below...

PS: I also read an incredible Facebook "fable" about the German refugee crisis written by our good friend David Goldman, a.k.a. "Spengler." You won't want to miss it.

Why do conservatives have such a HUGE problem understanding the difference between comedians and everyone else or some douchebag like Milo Yiannopolous?

Facebook and twitter and Google will learn the hard way that censorship means less money, governments and bankrupt companies do not pay for ad exposure.
