Social Media Companies Discriminating' Against Republicans

This time around, he did not bash any politician or country, rather he complained about social media's discriminating agenda. Facebook, Google's YouTube, Twitter and Apple have restricted or temporarily limited right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones's accounts for violating terms of service or community guidelines. Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won't let that happen.

In a series of tweets on Saturday morning, US President Donald Trump raised the issue of social media platforms de-platforming political opinion to the right of the ideological spectrum.

He finished up saying "many voices are being destroyed, which can not be allowed to happen anymore".

He shows why censorship doesn't work and can never work in a free society because all it does is reflect the censor's bias: "Who is making the choices".

"Censorship is a very risky thing & absolutely impossible to police", Trump tweeted. He also made his oft-repeated reference to news organizations - in this case, CNN and MSNBC - as "fake news", and suggested that there should be no controls on social media.

Jones has since said that removing his content is censorship, and released a video statement claiming that there is "an attack on our birthright of free speech" and that "all nationalists and all conservatives are being shadowbanned and dialled down to nothing".

PragerU tweeted that Facebook had either deleted or limited the reach of its videos, some of which touched on the subject of how speech is being stifled on college campuses. I get used to it and watch with a grain of salt, or don't watch at all.

Twitter Chief Executive Officer Jack Dorsey denied claims his company is discriminating against users with conservative views in an interview with CNN's Brian Stelter. But Twitter determined the ad is "ineligible to participate in the Twitter Ads program" because the content violates its ban on "that which is offensive, vulgar, or obscene".

"It's always an apology", she said, adding social media censorship is a "very real problem".
