Just when you thought the world might be finally getting out from under the pandemic, they find new strains they claim are worse than the last one.
Officials worldwide are beginning to put numerous COVID regulations back in place and Big Tech is doing its “job” of making sure people aren’t spreading “lies” on social media platforms.
Now Twitter is policing “misinformation” again and this time they’re going after journalists.
Jack Dorsey seemed to lay off some of the censorship for a bit after he caught a lot of flak for banning some very big-name celebrities for merely voicing their opinion.
No doubt Twitter was still banning people for anything that was counter to the Biden administration narrative, but they were a little more cautious in who they were banning.
Well they’re back at it.
The latest COVID strain, the delta variant, has the Left in a tizzy again and in turn has Big Tech trying to “help” by policing the Internet for people spreading “misinformation.”
Now it looks like conservative commentator and self-proclaimed “vaccine doubter” Alex Berenson can hang his hat up with Donald Trump because Twitter has said he’s gone – permanently.
Twitter says Berenson violated the rules repeatedly.
Berenson did address the suspension on his Substack page and said it was because of a recent post where he criticized the coronavirus vaccine.
“It doesn’t stop infection. Or transmission. Don’t think of it as a vaccine. Think of it – at best – as a therapeutic with a limited window of efficacy and terrible side effect profile that must be dosed IN ADVANCE OF ILLNESS,” Berenson’s Tweet read.
In the journalist’s Substack post he defended his position.
He also blasted Twitter for the decision to ban him based on a statement about the vaccine.
“We have reached a dangerous moment. Social media companies that have audiences which dwarf any other are now actively censoring reporters at the behest of governments. I will continue to fight to get out the truth and am considering all legal options,” he stated.
It is a scary time.
When an individual is censored because of something they said about a new vaccine, there is no longer freedom of speech.
