Cartoonist Ben Garrison was disinvited from the White House’s Thursday “Social Media Summit” on Bit Tech censorship while some right-wing figures began to notice a trend: not many people who have actually been censored have been invited to the event.
“Have any of the people who got invited to the social media summit actually been censored by social media?” Paul Joseph Watson asked on Twitter.
While there are some invitees who have been censored – Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe, whose video exposing Google’s anti-Trump bias was removed by Google-owned YouTube being one them – the list includes such bland right-wing establishment organizations as the Heritage Foundation, PragerU, Turning Point USA, and the Media Research Center, none of whom have faced any significant censorship at all.
Among the uninvited are Laura Loomer, who was banned from Twitter in November and Facebook and Facebook-owned Instagram in May, Watson, who was banned from Facebook and Instagram on the same day as Loomer, Alex Jones, who has been banned from nearly every social media platform on earth, and Milo Yiannopuolos and Gavin McInnes, who are both banned from Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
All of the above-mentioned right-wing personalities helped to get Trump elected in the first place. Trump’s was a revolution of people, not Washington, D.C. nonprofits. If Trump wants their support again in 2020, he must figure out a way for them to get their platforms back. What exactly will be discussed, and whether it will move the ball forward on ending Big Tech bias against conservatives, remains to be seen. Also important to note is that Facebook and Twitter were not invited to the summit.
But Loomer is pressing forward on her own.
She announced a lawsuit against Twitter and CAIR in May. Tuesday, she announced a $3 billion lawsuit against Facebook.
This site reported:
On Tuesday, Larry Klayman, the founder of Freedom Watch and a former federal prosecutor announced the filing of a defamation lawsuit by conservative investigative journalist Laura Loomer against Facebook. The complaint, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida (Case No. 9:19-cv-80893), alleges that Facebook and its wholly owned sister company Instagram, in banning Ms. Loomer from the social media sites, maliciously defamed her by publishing that she is a “dangerous individual” and a domestic Jewish terrorist.
