The tech tyrants at Facebook went into overdrive this week and banned Milo Yiannopoulos, Laura Loomer, Paul Joseph Watson and Alex Jones — without any explanation, the conservative journalists were labeled “dangerous” by Facebook.
President Trump fired off a tweetstorm Friday evening on the social media censorship of conservatives and named James Woods and Paul Joseph Watson.
“I am continuing to monitor the censorship of AMERICAN CITIZENS on social media platforms. This is the United States of America — and we have what’s known as FREEDOM OF SPEECH! We are monitoring and watching, closely!!” Trump tweeted.
“So surprised to see Conservative thinkers like James Woods banned from Twitter, and Paul Watson banned from Facebook!” Trump said linking to a Breitbart article on Twitter’s silencing of James Woods.
Paul Joseph Watson works for Infowars and has been employed by Alex Jones for several years.
On Thursday Paul Joseph Watson was banned from Facebook for being associated with Infowars and Alex Jones.
Paul Joseph Watson has NEVER broken Facebook rules… But he associates with Alex Jones.
Facebook is now banning anyone who is linked to Infowars or has shared too many stories from the conservative Infowars page.
But it’s even worse…
It is now a violation of Facebook policy to speak positively ANYWHERE about people they don’t like.
Twitter also banned conservative actor James Woods last weekend for paraphrasing American essayist, poet and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson, for “abusive behavior.”
James Woods tweeted, “If you try to kill the King, you better not miss.” #HangThemAll – similar to a quote from an essay Emerson wrote on Plato: “When you strike at a king, you must kill him.”
The Twitter overlords decided James Woods should be silenced for quoting a poet.
The time to act is NOW — Trump must do something about the censorship of conservatives before the 2020 presidential election cycle heats up.
