Since the November election, President Trump, My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell, former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell, prominent lawyer Lin Wood, President Trump’s former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, conservative personality and Trump supporter Ricky Vaughn, and now, Jim Hoft, the founder of The Gateway Pundit, one of the top news websites in America, have all been banned from Twitter.
During President Trump’s campaign, he tweeted links to the Gateway Pundit’s website 14 times. He even referenced a Gateway Pundit article in his Republican nomination acceptance speech, so it’s only natural that the incredibly popular Gateway Pundit would become a target of the Left. By the Left, we mean the social media czars like Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
Jim Hoft of The Gateway Pundit is no stranger to hatred from the Left. George Soros funded Media Matters has been targeting Hoft for years. Recently, Media Matters attempted to discredit Hoft for exposing leftists, including Antifa leader John Sullivan for his part in the Capitol riots. The Media Matters hit piece on The Gateway Pundit, written by Eric Kleefeld, is a perfect example of how the left-wing media attempts to destroy the work of real journalists like Jim Hoft, who work incredibly long hours to get to the bottom of important issues the mainstream media is completely ignoring, like who was really behind the Capitol siege or why is no one talking about the alleged cop who shot Ashli Babbit in the Capitol while Antifa leader and Black Lives Matter radical, John Sullivan, who once threatened to “rip the president out of the White House,” stood within feet of the shooting victim at the time of her death?
Over two months ago, The Gateway Pundit owner brokered a deal with the TCF Center in Detroit whereby he would pay to received video footage of the facility where hundreds of thousands of absentee ballots were counted in the November election. Jim was disappointed to find the video footage he received was limited to outside corridors of the TCF Center and showed no footage of the room where the processing, counting, and tabulation of ballots took place. He and a team of Gateway Pundit sleuths, which included Cassandra Fairbanks, went to work to view hundreds of clips from multiple cameras to see what they could find. What they found was incredible.
This cannot be overstated…
The Gateway Pundit is the ONLY publication in America that was willing to pay to obtain footage of the TCF Center in Michigan.
At midnight, President Trump had an astounding 300,000 vote lead over Biden, then, at around 3:30 am and again, at 4:30 am, a Detroit City Clerk van pulled up with two separate deliveries. Months before Jim Hoft obtained the video footage of the perimeter of the TCF Center counting room, multiple GOP poll challengers gave sworn testimony explaining how they witnessed a “white van” making an early morning ballot dump through a side door in the massive counting room.
Hoft’s video not only confirms the testimony of the whistleblowers who were subsequently mocked by the media and Democratic lawmakers, but it revealed that a black vehicle driven by an unidentified person entered the TCF Center, parked by a door, and waited for a black male, dressed in all black (the required dress code for anyone working in a supervisorial role at the TCF Center) to open the door next to his vehicle and hand him something through his window.
Once the person in the vehicle received the unknown item (cash?) from what appears to be an election official at approximately 3:30 am, they drive away as the white van filled with ballots enters the facility. This scene is repeated at 4:30 am.
So, what did the only publication willing to investigate the possibility that the election was stolen in Michigan at the TCF Center get for his incredibly hard work and act of real journalism?—he got banned from Twitter only HOURS after posting the link to his bombshell article that included the never-before-seen video footage at the TCF Center.
The Left has been openly celebrating the removal of pro-Trump accounts from social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook, but what happens when their views don’t align with Mark Zuckerberg or Jack Dorsey? What happens when Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, and Google CEO Sundar Pichai only allow discussion of 3 or 4 subjects of their choosing on their platforms? What happens when another popular social media site, like Parler, that allows free-speech, is shut down by billionaire Jeff Bezos’ Amazon?
Is the left foolish enough to believe that the unbridled power our government has given to 3 or 4 men will only silence those with whom they disagree and that they will never be affected by these men who’ve been given so much centralized power? Does the Left forget what happened when one man was given the ability to extinguish an entire population based on their religion?
Does the Left remember how Hitler’s first order of business was also censorship?
From the US Holocaust Museum– The Nazis wanted Germans to support the Nazi dictatorship and believe in Nazi ideas. To accomplish this goal, they tried to control forms of communication through censorship and propaganda. This included control of newspapers, magazines, books, art, theater, music, movies, and radio.
Examples of censorship under the Nazis included:
Closing down or taking over anti-Nazi newspapers;
Controlling what news appeared in newspapers, on the radio, and in newsreels;
Banning and burning books that the Nazis categorized as un-German;
Controlling what soldiers wrote home during World War II.
Martin Niemoller, a former junior officer in the German Navy, said it best with his incredible poem that reminds us of what can happen when one man or one small group of men are given too much power and because their decisions don’t directly affect the masses, those who are unaffected turn their heads.
First, they came for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time there was no one
left to speak up for me.
When the Nazis came to power in 1933, the German constitution guaranteed freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Through decrees and laws, the Nazis abolished these civil rights and destroyed German democracy. Starting in 1934, it was illegal to criticize the Nazi government. Even telling a joke about Hitler was considered treachery. People in Nazi Germany could not say or write whatever they wanted.
Then they came for Trump supporters, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Democrat…
No one is exempt from the censorship cabal we have created in America. Congress needs to reign in the powers of those who seek to strip us of our First Amendment Right. It all starts with YOU. If you don’t call your state and US Congress members to demand they address the censorship issue, a small group of powerful men will determine your fate despite your political affiliation.
