Big Tech’s battle with President Trump has become an all-out war on conservatives’ free speech, Republican critics said after social media banished the president and his supporters from the Internet platforms.
Amazon, Apple, Google and Twitter silenced online Mr. Trump and scores of his supporters, they said in the name of preventing an Inauguration Day repeat of the Capitol Hill riot last week.
Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican, said liberals were using the attack on the U.S. Capitol to “not just erase the president [but] erase everybody” who supported him.
Rubio went on to say “We’re now living in a country where four or five companies, unelected, unaccountable, have the power, a monopoly power, to decide, ‘We’re going to wipe people out, we’re going to just erase them from any sort of digital platform.’”
Twitter’s extensive purge of its users was not limited to Mr. Trump. Prominent political voices and public officials reported losing thousands of followers in a few hours.
Twitter struck Mr. Trump first by permanently suspending him on its platform. Then it began stamping out federal government and Trump campaign accounts.
Prominent political voices and public officials reported losing thousands of followers in a few hours.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted an image claiming his personal account lost 19,500 followers and his government account dropped 36,200 followers.
“Silencing speech is dangerous. It’s un-American,” Mr. Pompeo said from his personal Twitter account. “Sadly, this isn’t a new tactic of the Left. They’ve worked to silence opposing voices for years. We cannot let them silence 75M Americans.”
He also compared Twitter’s actions to the heavy censorship under the Chinese Communist Party.
When asked about users saying they had lost tens of thousands of followers, a Twitter spokesperson directed people to the policy for combating platform manipulation and spam.
The Biblical prophecies (Matthew 24, Luke 21, 2 Timothy 3) foretell that there will be a time of division with offenses and bitterness that will happen as signs of the Last Days indicating the nearing end of this age.
These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
