Twitter Boots Conservative Actor James Woods. His Response is Absolutely Perfect.

Antifa

Twitter, a company that is notorious for banning conservatives and right leaning content on its social media platform, has decided to take action against outspoken conservative actor James Woods, suspending his account.

An officiale for the company, who was not authorized to speak in an official capacity, told the Daily Wire they were suspending accounts for tweeting “pieces of media” — which includes memes and graphics — that they claim “falsely portrays certain messages as coming from the Democratic Party.”

Smells fishy, right?

Well, as it turns out, Woods is not backing down.

The official said that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) “flagged” the content for Twitter and the platform deemed it was part of a “misinformation campaign” that was being viewed as a “targeted voter suppression initiative.”

The official said that they would do the same for the Republican National Committee (RNC), but did not know if the Republicans had ever flagged content for Twitter to review, or if the platform had ever taken the same actions for Republicans in the past. The Daily Wire spoke to multiple officials throughout the Republican Party about whether the party had ever flagged content for a social media platform to review — none of the officials were able to find any specific instances.

Sarah Miller, Wood’s girlfriend, wrote in a tweet that Woods was suspended for the following tweet:

Woods was told that if he deleted the tweet the suspension on his account would be lifted.

Woods initially responded with a short message to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, saying: “You are a coward, @jack. There is no free speech for Conservatives on @Twitter.”

Woods has stated that he has zero plans for removing the tweet.

“The irony is, Twitter accused me of affecting the political process, when in fact, their banning of me is the truly egregious interference,” Woods told the AP. “Because now, having your voice smothered is much more disturbing than having your vocal chords slit. If you want to kill my free speech, man up and slit my throat with a knife, don’t smother me with a pillow.”

“I wish this were about an unknown Twitter user so that I could be even more passionate about it,” Woods continued. “This is not about a celebrity being muzzled. This is about an American being silenced — one tweet at a time.”

What makes this issue so serious is that, while Twitter is absolutely a private company that can decide for itself what kind of content it allows, the site, along with other social media giants, has become a huge player in the dissemination of information and news in the world.

Therefore, for them to promote content that only shows one side of the story while they actively suppress the other side is extremely dangerous, and frankly, shouldn’t be allowed.

Which is what makes this situation so tricky. By asking the government to get involved, it’s creating bloated bureaucracy and involvement in freedom of speech that we don’t the government to have.

If we don’t do something, people only get one side of the story and the left benefits long term from that.

Very bad situation, folks.

US Pop Star Offers to Pay Fines For Olympic Team Protesting Skimpy Outfits

The IOC wants the women to remain scantily clad, and this is undoubtedly on account of their incessant greed.

Published

The Olympics may have built themselves as some sort of prestigious and untouchable global event in years past, but the last few decades have revealed just what a shady cash-grab the games have become. It all began in the 90’s when the financially-struggling Winter Olympics added snowboarding to the games, in a move that was blatantly meant to generate ad revenue from the emerging sport and its fans.  In this quest to cash in, the International Olympic Committee refused to allow any actual snowboarding organizations participate in the operations, which drove several of the world’s best to boycott.  This, in turn, completely ruined the concept that the gold medalists were truly the best in the world, and exposed the IOC as nothing more than a marketing firm. Now, in 2021, a number of female athletes are complaining that they are being forced to wear skimpier clothes than their male counterparts, (often in the same discipline), to which the IOC responded with a “be quiet and play” sort of attitude. Again, the skimpier outfits equate to more ratings, so Olympic organizers are refusing to make accommodations. This has led US pop star Pink to step up.  US pop star Pink has offered to pay the fines handed out to the Norwegian women’s beach handball team, after they wore shorts like their male counterparts instead of bikini bottoms. The team was fined 1,500 euros (£1,295) for “improper clothing” at the European Beach Handball Championships last week. “I’m very proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team for protesting sexist rules about their uniform,” tweeted the singer on Sunday. “Good on ya, ladies,” she added. “I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up.” In doing so, the Olympics will get their coveted cash and these female athletes will be able to perform…

GOP Rep. Says There’s ‘Credible’ Evidence of Wuhan Lab-Leak Theory

China has been avoiding any such investigation for months now.

Published

From the very moment that the COVID-19 pandemic began, there were concerns that China wasn’t telling us the truth. This was primarily based on Beijing’s horrendous record of dishonesty when it comes to the international community, which has been ever-so frequent in cases in which the Chinese government could be made to appear cruel or uncaring. To be fair, it doesn’t take long for most to realize that this is, in fact, reality, especially as we continue to receive credible reports of the nation’s use of concentration camps and ethnic cleansing. In the case of the coronavirus, not only did the world discover that the data coming out of Beijing was wholly incorrect, but that a laboratory specializing in the exact type of coronaviruses that caused COVID-19 happened to be just a few miles away from the epicenter of the pandemic. Now, despite numerous attempts to stall or stymy efforts to investigate the theory that pandemic began as a lab-leak, one US lawmaker is claiming that there is credible evidence of just such a possibility.  Sunday, on FNC’s “The Next Revolution,” Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) stressed the importance of investigating the origins of COVID-19, and in particular, China’s role. His statement was stern. “As you know, we still have yet to have any notice that there will be an investigation. And so I think, rightfully, we used the powers of oversight that we have in Congress and we convened a hearing. Unfortunately, none of the Democrats attended that hearing. But the expert testimony from the witnesses was quite profound and quite significant. “And I think as they said, and I would tend to agree that this virus came from the laboratory, whether it was a leak, whether it was accidental, whether it was intentional, whether it was manmade or whether it…
