The “woke” censors over at Twitter are at it banning conservatives, and denying them a voice in what has become the modern version of the public square, once again.
This time Jack Dorsey and his crew have decided that Mike Lindell, CEO of My Pillow, is too much of a threat to public safety and must be immediately silenced on their platform.
Reuters has the story:
Twitter Inc has permanently suspended the account of My Pillow chief Mike Lindell for repeated violations of the company’s policy on election misinformation, the social media firm said late on Monday.
Lindell, a devout supporter of former U.S. President Donald Trump, financed post-election protest movements in a bid to overturn the election win of President Joe Biden.
Lindell used his personal Twitter account, which had nearly half a million followers before being suspended, and the company’s account to spread unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud in the presidential election.
Lindell repeatedly violated the company’s civic integrity policy, due to which he was suspended, a Twitter spokesperson said in an emailed statement. Twitter had permanently suspended Trump from its platform earlier this month.
The founder and Chief Executive Officer of the My Pillow company, Lindell’s political commentary and advertisements are a regular fixture on conservative media.
A self-described former cocaine addict and alcoholic who says he found sobriety through Christianity, Lindell helped sponsor a two-week March for Trump bus tour that ended in Washington on Dec. 14 and spoke at five stops.
He told Reuters a fortnight ago that he did not help finance subsequent trips to promote the Jan. 6 rally that devolved into riots as supporters of Trump stormed through the U.S. Capitol.
But the Capitol riots that left five people dead, did not change his views on contesting the election.
“I’m never letting the fraud go,” Lindell told Reuters then.
My Pillow did not respond to Reuters’ request for comment on Twitter’s suspension of Lindell’s account
We can expect other social media companies and video platforms to follow suit and ban My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell from their platforms in the very near future.
What Twitter and other tech companies are doing by banning those whose views they dislike is extremely dangerous to our freedoms, especially freedom of speech, yet so called liberals are cheering it on.
This is a big mistake, as a company that willingly “cancelled” the duly elected President of the United States of America will have no issue banning anyone they choose.
Democrats and their media allies may come to regret the day they ceded so much power to unelected tech oligarchs.
Let us hope that day comes sooner rather than later and they wake up to the monster they have created and cheered on before it is too late.
