Now it is becoming clear why Facebook and Twitter have for so long been harassing, shadowbanning, and blocking foes of jihad terror and Sharia oppression. Journalist Jordan Schachtel revealed in Conservative ReviewTuesday that “the Hamas-tied Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), which is best known as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing case in U.S. history, appears to have access to high-ranking Facebook and Twitter executives and has communicated with these individuals about who should be allowed to stay on their platforms.”

Facebook got its start as FaceMash: a site comparing the attractiveness of female Harvard students. It was then reborn as a social network for Harvard students, Ivy League schools and then everyone.
More recent surveys showed that the average Facebook user in the United States is 40 years old. That makes Facebook users less likely to start stupid viral trends, those tend to come from younger social media apps, some owned by Facebook, and more likely to be deeply engaged in politics.
Mark Zuckerberg had created a company to appeal to college students who wanted to rate the cutest girls on campus, but is instead stuck with a monster worth hundreds of billions (that number will continue fluctuating with media hit pieces) used by people with actual jobs to share family photos and talk politics. And it’s the politics part, not the baby photos, that’s turning the heat up on Zuckerberg.
Far-right activist Gavin McInnes has been kicked off YouTube, the latest social media platform to cut ties with him or his group, the Proud Boys.
The Daily Beast reported Monday that YouTube has banned McGinnes, who had over 220,000 subscribers before the ban.
A statement on McInnes’s YouTube page says that the channel has been terminated after “multiple third-party claims of copyright infringement.”
The fear of foreign actors, primarily RUSSIA, meddling in Canada’s next federal election has been bleated ad nauseam by Canadian left-wing politicians, academics and journalists. Ever since Donald Trump burst their collective bubble of arrogance by winning the presidency at the tail end of 2016, the Liberal Party of Canada and their many allies in the press and universities have latched onto the Democratic Party’s scapegoat for why Hillary Clinton lost. They have used it as a cudgel for why we must vigilantly monitor for and neutralize “fake news” from social media in order to protect Canadians being similarly hoodwinked.
Just so we are clear:@CRTV's Gavin McInnes has been banned from @Facebook but no action will be taken against the Antifa groups that use the platform to advocate for the murder of @RealDonaldTrump.https://t.co/Wur46tTK3g

While social media companies collude to silence right-of-center influencers, violent far-left extremist groups appear to be given a pass. This NYC based antifa group has been using their “leftist privilege” to freely violate Twitter and Facbook Terms of Service. In another glaring example of “non existent social media bias”, this extremist group is apparently allowed to use their social media account to advocate for murder.
A Republican politician is an investor in Gab, the now-shuttered social media network used by the Pittsburgh synagogue gunman, DailyMail.com can disclose.
If allowing Republicans to invest isn’t illegal, it should be!
Gab, a social media platform used by the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter, has been kicked off PayPal and pressured into releasing an apologetic statement for the shooter’s anti-Semitic rants.
In the letter it sent to Gab, PayPal does not elaborate on how the platform violated its user agreement, explaining that it is PayPal’s right to terminate service at any time for any reason – a provision hidden in many online contracts.
The alleged shooter, Michael Bowers, had accounts on Twitter and Facebook as well, but it was Gab – the alt-right’s favorite platform – that took all the heat for hosting Bowers’ anti-Semitic rants. Gab, meanwhile, says it provided Bowers’ user data to the FBI immediately when it heard of his identity, archiving his account before suspending it.
(Bloomberg) — The White House has drafted an executive order for President Donald Trump’s signature that would instruct federal antitrust and law enforcement agencies to open investigations into the business practices of Alphabet Inc.’s Google, Facebook Inc. and other social media companies.
The order is in its preliminary stages and hasn’t yet been run past other government agencies, according to a White House official. Bloomberg News obtained a draft of the order.
…On the other hand, treating social media as a public utility is not entirely unappealing. Among certain demographics, online messaging has displaced the telephone and email as the preferred way to keep in touch with friends and family. We would not tolerate a phone company cutting off somebody’s service because of the words they used in their conversations, or because some anonymous and unaccountable mob denounced them as a Nazi. The argument that anyone who doesn’t like the behaviour of these corporations can simply use (or build) an alternative is rapidly losing its weight as the web giants proceed in lockstep to eradicate controversial content, and smaller sites that refuse to censor just get kicked off the internet altogether. Perhaps the time has come to recognise that the public square is now privately administered, and its participants need to be afforded the same First Amendment rights that protect them from censorship by the government?
Canadian columnist and host of the Glazov Gang, Jamie Glazov, was suspended from Facebook on September 11 — a day dedicated to remembering the 9/11 terrorist attacks — after he posted an article he wrote about how to counter Jihad.
Social media entered our world with a promising offer: you can communicate here – with virtually everyone on Earth. For years, a wide range of views were tolerated, and every popular voice enriched the creators of the platforms by drawing millions of eyes and ears. These platforms fast eclipsed other means of communication specifically because they offered such an open and effective means of reaching out to others.
But now social media have a near monopoly on public discourse, and the age of censorship has arrived.

I feel safer already…
In the same week that the US President urged the tech companies to stop censoring conservative voices and the CEO of Twitter, Mr Jack Dorsey admitted that his company is ‘mostly left-wing’ biased, representatives from tech companies planned for a meeting to streamline their strategy for the 2018 Midterms.
