Have you ever felt as if you are losing a battle? That’s exactly how I’m feeling at the moment. Anti-free speech corporation Twitter have now banned Tommy Robinson’s account permanently from the platform.
Tommy is not the first figure associated with the right to have his Twitter account taken away (remember Milo anyone), but it’s another indication that we are losing the fight for free speech.
Firstly, as someone who has followed Tommy for a while, I don’t think I’ve ever seen him bully, threaten or harrass anyone. He has been involved in arguments and debates, and at times these have become heated, but he is usually responding to hateful messages against him.
Now, I know that Twitter is a private business and its owners are able to decide to ban anyone they see fit from the platform, but it’s all so one sided. Run a search for “white people” and you will see constant updates of people insulting the entire white race, yet you see no punishment for it.
The most laughable thing in this entire situation is that people on the left love to call anyone with a differing opinion fascist, yet censorship, removing people’s platforms and punishing people for going against the popular narrative are three of the most fascist things anybody can do.
Sadly, I can’t see this changing any time soon. Twitter makes money through advertising, so it’s pretty much the big corporations who get to dictate who gets banned from Twitter and who doesn’t. The same big companies who are pro open-borders because it saves them money on wages. The same big companies who wouldn’t dare insult a backwards religion because of the billions of dollars the followers spend. We are a society that is led by money, not morals.
Love Tommy Robinson or hate him, he does what he does and says what he says because he believes he is doing the right thing. He believes it so much that he puts his life at risk on a daily basis to try to change things. We should be celebrating courageous people like him, not lambsting them.
Twitter has been going downhill for years now anyway, and it is almost obselete when it comes to sponsorship. Everyone knows that most people don’t go on Twitter to buy stuff. I have paid them money before, but I want to make it clear to them and anybody reading this. I will never spend another penny on their censorship friendly, anti-white joke of a social network.
If anyone from Twitter is reading this, are you going to ban these accounts?
