Another example of mainstream media and liberal leftist organizations limiting freedom of speech, once again to fulfill the leftist propaganda machine.
Twitter just recently banned the company, “Grabien News” off of Twitter for posting a video of congressman Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) speaking out against big Pharma.
The congressman stated they (the pharmaceutical company) don’t want to explore and offer alternative treatment methods because of economic interests (I.e They want you to take the vaccine, because they make more money off of it).
It’s no shock, considering there are A LOT of treatments that DO work at fighting COVID-19 once infected out there. And they haven’t received nearly as much press as the vaccine has.
President Donald Trump himself has been very outspoken on this matter and the miracles ivermectin, remdesivir, regeneron, etc as well as many other alternatives perform in fighting COVID-19.
The Epoch Times has more on the story:
Grabien founder Tom Elliott wrote on Twitter on Dec. 31 that Grabien was suspended for citing comments by Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) about COVID-19 treatments.
“Big Pharma Won’t Consider Therapeutics Like HCQ or Ivermectin Because of Economic Interests,” the post reads. It had an attached link to a video containing the congressman’s comments.
Elliott included a screenshot statement from Twitter, which sent him a boilerplate message that Grabien was suspended for “violating the policy on spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19,” which Elliott described as “next-level Twitter absurdity.”
This comes as no shock, especially considering the article The Epoch Times posted, continues to give examples on recent bans of other popular figure heads in recent times:
The suspension appears to suggest Twitter is aiming to crack down on COVID-19- or vaccine-related posts and content that run contrary to mainstream views on the matter.
Dr. Robert Malone, who helped develop the mRNA vaccine technology, was suspended last week for allegedly violating Twitter’s terms and conditions. And on Jan. 2, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-Ga.) personal Twitter page was suspended for similar reasons, she wrote on social media site Gettr.
Here’s what some (who haven’t had their posts taken down by the leftist giant yet) had to say about it:
Anyone who wants or supports other people being banned from Twitter should never say they are pro free speech.
Free speech is a culture more than it is a right.

Remember: That which the pharmaceutical/corporate/govt/media/BigTech establishment censors is that which you should make your business to learn about. In this way, we defeat their disinformation and censorship in 2022. https://t.co/D6aPC6qJ5d

Has Twitter ever banned a leftist for "misinformation"?

This is a VERY complex issue when you really get down to the nitty gritty details of it.
Looking at all sides of this coin, you can’t have anarchy but you also can’t have government overreach violating our first amendment.
Social media companies are suppose to create a “safe environment” for people who want to express their thoughts and share the news.
Their obligation is to censor explicit and violent content -which they do, most of the time.
However, their obligation ends at censoring political beliefs and/or opinions on healthcare.
The problem is these social media companies are abusing their power of censoring violent, dangerous, unsafe content and stretching that rule to cover censorship of political beliefs.
And that is a clear violation of the first amendment.
