It appears as part of the effort by those opposed to President Donald Trump and the MAGA movement, Big Tech including Facebook Twitter and other companies are making a concerted and co-ordinated effort to remove not only President Trump but also those people who support the President from social media.

Examples

1. President Trump

His account with c. 88 million followers has been permanently suspended by Twitter.


President Trump's facebook account was also locked indefinitely


2. It is being reported this evening that Apple have warned Parler to clean up the content on their app otherwise it will be deplatformed from Iphones


3. The #WalkAway campaign, a grassroots Patrioic movement which lets people give personal testimonies of their break with Leftist ideology and movements (504,000 so far according to B. Straka, its leader) and Straka and their 12 employees' facebook accounts has been removed by facebook - according to Straka in an interview on Bannon War Room this evening.

4. The twitter accounts of General Mike Flynn, Attorneys Sidney Powell and Lin Wood have all been suspended


Many others on the right are expressing concern that they too will be prevented from expressing their views publicly on social media.

So much for free speech in the Land of the Free. This does not augur well for the future of the U.S.A.

The Right were remiss not to have constructed their own platforms. Relying on the good graces of Big Tech is just another example of their shortsightedness and lack of sheer brutalism. The vast array of weapons in the right hands is one thing the US patriots still have to their advantage. Its an advantage they should now play.

Don't forget Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri.
He had a book contract with I think Simon and Schuster.
They have cancelled it now, because of his work as a Senator who wanted scrutiny of the election.
The subject of his book?
The Threat Posed by Big Tech !!!!
Connect the dots....

A tiny little alarm bell rings with me, when a giant, globally-spread, communications Corporate, the biggest in the world, decides as to what gets said, and heard, and not said, and not heard.

No matter what that message is.

Did you vote for them?

I know that I didn’t.
