TMR Editor’s Note:
Now this is really HUGE! When Twitter bans a user for the actions of other individuals, you know the death of Free Speech on the Internet is right around the corner.
With the permanent ban of Milo Yiannopoulos by Twitter, free speech, especially for conservatives and libertarians, Tea Partiers and patriots, preppers and survivalists, Christians and Constitutionalists, etc. just became severely restricted. Truly, the Internet has been taken over by the ultra-liberal agenda that is administered by all the major social networks. They have chokepoints wherever they want them ready to take away the voice of any dissident they so choose.
The following article explains why this ban is a total catastrophe for freedom of speech as it is practiced on the Internet. It must be reversed, or else Twitter must be abandoned … by freedom-loving people everywhere.
Massive Assault On Free Speech
Love him or hate him, this guy speaks the unvarnished truth …
… about a lot of very important social and political matters
The permanent ban by Twitter of Milo Yiannopoulos represents one of the most blatant assaults on Free Speech ever perpetrated by a major social media platform.
First of all, there is simply no justification whatsoever for this ban; it is purely an act of naked censorship. The ban precipitated from a complaint filed by Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones. In other words, it was essentially an ultra-liberal’s thin skin that got Milo banned from Twitter.
For those who are unaware, Milo Yiannopoulos is a very serious truth speaker and writer. Although SOTN does not always agree with his various positions, we readily admit that he is right on target 95% of the time on virtually every topic that he comment on. The guy is really brilliant. His self-initiated Internet remit as follows:
[Milo is] a person well-known for acting as a free speech provocateur, exploiting the nexus of politics, technology and social justice issues.
So, why was he banned? Because Milo is too brilliant concerning some of the most radioactive social issues of our age. He overturns the ‘new’ conventional wisdom regarding so many sensitive and delicate wedge issues that he scares the crap out of the NWO ruling elites.
Not only is Milo very bright and very articulate, but he is also extremely persuasive. The elites simply won’t stand for someone who so upsets their MSM apple cart that puts out so much pap and piffle in the form of propaganda pablum.
This Ban Must Be Overturned
This Twitter ban on Milo must be reversed, otherwise everyone who uses the now pervasive social network utilities runs the risk of being banned … FOR SIMPLY SPEAKING THE TRUTH.
That is exactly what Milo is guilty of: Giving voice to some of the most inconvenient truths of the post-modern era. He does intelligently, cleverly and categorically. And the prevailing political establishment and social engineers do not like that. More than anything, the NWO cabal is afraid of authentic truth-speakers rising up throughout civil societies everywhere.
For these and many other reasons this ban must be overturned post haste by an enormous and overwhelming groundswell of support for Milo’s right to exercise free speech. Not to do so — by every Internet user — will put all of us in great jeopardy.
The permanent ban by Twitter of Milo Yiannopoulos is a grotesque act of transparent political censorship. It was designed to intimidate the conservative side of the blogosphere. It was also a profound act of cowardice by a social media enterprise that has no right to arbitrarily make such bans.
“With the cowardly suspension of my account, Twitter has confirmed itself as a safe space for Muslim terrorists and Black Lives Matter extremists, but a no-go zone for conservatives,” he said. “Twitter is holding me responsible for the actions of fans and trolls using the special pretzel logic of the left. Where are the Twitter police when Justin Bieber’s fans cut themselves on his behalf? Like all acts of the totalitarian regressive left, this will blow up in their faces, netting me more adoring fans. We’re winning the culture war, and Twitter just shot themselves in the foot. This is the end for Twitter. Anyone who cares about free speech has been sent a clear message: you’re not welcome on Twitter.”

Not only does this politically inspired ban transgress generally accepted rules of free speech, it also violates Twitter’s own posted rules and stated policies. Hence, this summary and unilateral action represents a HUGE shot across the bow of global free speech. Everyone ought to be deeply concerned about the far-reaching ramifications of such an anti-freedom of speech and despotic move by Twitter.
