Even with extreme censorship, news of these trials will make its way to citizens of Western Europe and here in the US.
Twitter Owes Salman Rushdie an Apology
After the attack on Rushdie, will Twitter finally ban the man and the regime who are still calling for his murder?
Twitter must be the epitome of hypocrisy. It bans The New York Post’s reporting of Hunter Biden’s laptop, or bans columnist Paul Sperry because of his recent tweet on the FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago, but allows Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, leader of the world’s #1 sponsor of terror, to freely use its platform.
Khamenei, you might remember, endorsed Iran’s murderous fatwa against author Salman Rushdie with this tweet...
Now that Hadi Matar, an Iran sympathizer whose now-deleted Facebook page was plastered with pictures of Iranian politicians, has been arrested for stabbing Rushdie about 10 times at a conference in Buffalo, I wonder if Twitter will call an emergency meeting.
I wonder if the higher ups will ask things like: Are we going too far with our selective censorship? If we’re cracking down on speech we dislike here in the U.S., should we crack down harder on Islamist speech that may incite violence? Should we toughen our guidelines?
A police SWAT team was deployed in Atlanta to arrest a Georgia man who was spotted spray-painting swastikas on an LGBTQ rainbow crosswalk.
No one can ever be arrested for calling anyone racist these days, and it would have made woke heads explode much better.
attack scene from Monty Python is censored because it is 'offensive'?

Alright. I have to share this and you should too. I went to have a laugh and re-watch the Bunny Attack Scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail and I found this instead. No YouTube. I DO NOT WISH TO PROCEED.
Fauci’s Red Guards: Lawsuit Reveals Vast Federal Censorship Army
“This evidence suggests we are uncovering the most serious, coordinated, and large-scale violation of First Amendment free speech rights by the federal government’s executive branch in US history.”
One aspect of dictatorships that citizens of democratic nations often find puzzling is how the population can be convinced to support such dystopian policies. How do they get people to run those concentration camps? How do they find people to take food from starving villagers? How can they get so many people to support policies that, to any outsider, are so needlessly destructive, cruel, and dumb?
The answer lies in forced preference falsification. When those who speak up in principled opposition to a dictator’s policies are punished and forced into silence, those with similar opinions are forced into silence as well, or even forced to pretend they support policies in which they do not actually believe. Emboldened by this facade of unanimity, supporters of the regime’s policies, or even those who did not previously have strong opinions, become convinced that the regime’s policies are just and good—regardless of what those policies actually are—and that those critical of them are even more deserving of punishment. ...
Through this method of forced preference falsification, any mass of people can be made to support virtually any policy, no matter how destructive or inimical to the interests of the people. Avoiding this spiral of preference falsification is therefore why freedom of speech is such a central tenet of the Enlightenment, and why it is given such primacy in the First Amendment of the US Constitution. No regime in American history has ever previously had the power to force preference falsification by systematically and clandestinely silencing those critical of its policies.
Until now. As it turns out, an astonishing new release of discovery documents in Missouri v. Biden—in which NCLA Legal is representing plaintiffs including Jay Bhattacharya, Martin Kulldorff, and Aaron Kheriaty against the Biden administration for violations of free speech during Covid—reveal a vast federal censorship army, with more than 50 federal officials across at least 11 federal agencies having secretly coordinated with social media companies to censor private speech.

No wonder Twitter refused my verification multiple times. Its a US government operation and Twitter is complying with government authorities on censorship and reprisal for those with medical authority who are bringing truth to the world. All you can do is overwhelm RT+follow.
“We really don’t have real, true freedom of speech anymore.”
The great @jakepaul rips Big Tech for censoring private speech online during the #PaulSilva press conference. #JakePaul brings up Mark Zuckerberg on #JoeRogan as proof.
Great question from @ConradsonJordan
Rebel News (and me personally) have just been served with a legal notice of intention to bring a lawsuit, sent by Trudeau’s “disinformation” czar, Jean-Christophe Boucher. ...
He’s coming to censor us, to shut us down, just like he publicly warned us would happen.
I need your help, please.
Jean-Christophe Boucher, Trudeau’s “disinformation” czar
Jean-Christophe Boucher has unlimited resources. He has received massive grants from the Trudeau government that he’s used to fund his work to smear Rebel News and other Trudeau critics. He’s also a professor at the University of Calgary (my old university), which also has unlimited resources, too.
In fact, his legal threat was signed by the University of Calgary’s lawyer. It wouldn’t surprise me if the U of C is paying for this attack on us to ensure they keep getting more Trudeau grants.
But the main thing to know about this Boucher character is that he’s Trudeau’s censorship point man. Boucher’s the activist paid to lead Trudeau’s campaign against “disinformation”. Which is Trudeau’s new way of silencing his critics.
Boucher has hated Rebel News for a very long time. He smears us online, comparing us to poison and asking, “when will we shut down the Rebel for spreading false information? This should be a lawsuit for undermining public safety.”
This is a personal vendetta to him.
If you criticize Trudeau, you’re on Boucher’s hit list. Here’s what he said about the trucker convoy: “Just cut their trucks in little pieces. Dump it on their driveway.” Not surprisingly, he calls supporters of Pierre Poilievre “insane” and “toxic”.
You can see why Trudeau loves him.
BOOM! I say again, BOOM! The federal Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals just said @twitter and other social media platforms don’t have an unlimited right to discriminate against speech.
Let a thousand flowers bloom.
On its face; as it appears (as opposed to, as it is applied).
The facial constitutionality of the law is in question.

It's coming, and it will encapsulate the Social Justice Revolution as part of American Canon, so to criticize it will be subject to censorship.
