Extreme control efforts are a reaction to extreme fear. If the left-wing political elements who control most social media platforms were not fearful they would not be taking such aggressive action. Today Brandon Straka announces his #WalkAway group has been removed from Facebook and deplatformed.
The “Walk Away” movement was an organization of voices of former Democrats who turned away from the extreme leftist moves by the democrat party. The group was supportive of President Trump and the populist ‘America First’ message.
This move comes after Joe Biden called President Trump supporters “domestic terrorists” and announced his administration’s intent to target those voices as members of an insurrection against his administration. An alarming move to a totalitarian state where dissenting voices must be silenced and removed.
[Wall Street Journal] “Don’t dare call them protesters,” Mr. Biden said in remarks from Wilmington, Del. “They were a riotous mob. Insurrectionists. Domestic terrorists. It’s that basic. It’s that simple.”
Mr. Biden blamed President Trump for inciting the violence, saying he had “unleashed an all-out assault on our institutions of democracy.” The White House didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
[…] Mr. Biden has said he plans to make a priority of passing a law against domestic terrorism, and he has been urged to create a White House post overseeing the fight against ideologically inspired violent extremists and increasing funding to combat them. (read more)
Additionally, there is currently a massive “pro-Trump” purge happening on Twitter. They even banned Tech Fog, a CTH friend who was never controversial, always careful, and only posted court documents highlighting legal cases involving corruption.
Axios– Reddit has banned the subreddit group “r/DonaldTrump,” a spokesperson confirmed to Axios.
Why it matters: While not an official group or page hosted by the president, it’s one of the company’s largest political communities dedicated to support for President Trump.
What they’re saying: “Reddit’s site-wide policies prohibit content that promotes hate, or encourages, glorifies, incites, or calls for violence against groups of people or individuals. In accordance with this, we have been proactively reaching out to moderators to remind them of our policies and to offer support or resources as needed,” a spokesperson tells Axios.
- “We have also taken action to ban the community r/donaldtrump given repeated policy violations in recent days regarding the violence at the U.S. Capitol.”
The big picture: It’s the latest in a string of platforms to take action against Trump’s accounts following the historic pro-Trump riot at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. (LINK)
The massive deplatforming and removal is unprecedented in scale. The movement by WordPress/Automattic to deplatform CTH shocked many in the media when it happened to us the week after the election.
In the aftermath of CTH being deplatformed we received many notifications of support and shocked messages from inside the tech industry. In recent days those same voices have signaled that CTH was likely a coordinated first-strike that previewed this post election wave to shut down voices of dissent.
These are remarkable times. Stand strong in fellowship… now people are starting to realize why CTH strongly advocated for unity of assembly in the last six months.
There are more of us than them. The Big Tech oligarchs who control the system are trying to shut down communication amid the dissenting voices that demand liberty and freedom. This is a strategic effort in the battle for our nation.
More to come….
