Twitter Employee Caught Red-Handed Days Before Conservative Shadow Ban

Published

on

Posting to Twitter these days seems to be problematic at best for conservatives. A number of prominent conservatives claim to have been shadow banned. Some are even taking legal action after complaining to Twitter directly about the censorship. Twitter has said they have fixed the issue and is claiming that certain cases were mistakes that have now been corrected. However, the issue is persistent and many are quite upset over it. There is alleged proof as well that there are those at Twitter that know this is occurring and are part of it.

Twitter Senior Engineering Manager Ian Brown posted a tweet that called White House social media director Dan Scavino Jr. “racist” and “anti-immigrant” not long before Twitter shadow banned multiple prominent conservatives. “Your [sic] seem to be on a bit of a racist, anti-immigrant bender Dan,” Brown replied on July 14th to a tweet that Scavino put out there on Immigrant and Custom Enforcement arrests of human smugglers.

Scavino’s tweet was pertinent and timely because it links to an ICE press release that announced the arrest of 18 illegal immigrant smugglers, as well as multiple illegal immigrants with prior arrests for “driving under the influence,” “fraud” and “child endangerment.” The Brown tweet came eleven days before Twitter was called on the carpet for “shadow banning” conservatives. The practice is a way of censoring conservatives by hiding their identities from those that follow them. The conservative users’ names are blocked from appearing in a drop-down search bar. It’s a practice that has been going on for quite a while on Twitter.

Of course, Twitter officials are saying this has nothing to do with politics. “To be clear, our behavioral ranking doesn’t make judgements based on political views or the substance of tweets,” product lead Kayvon Beykpour tweeted Wednesday.

But that’s not the way it appears to be on Twitter, thus the lawsuits. It is pretty clear to most conservatives out there that Twitter has a severe liberal bent and the fact that liberals founded the social media platform and many that are hired by Twitter are liberals themselves, bolsters this argument. Beykpour himself has tweeted that President Trump’s executive order suspending visas from certain countries was “shameful, racist and unintelligible.”

Twitter was asked about why they would employ the practice of shadow banning. A spokesperson referred to a May 15 blog post that cites “troll-like behavior” as a reason users may not show up in search drop-down menus. In other words, Twitter is deciding who is and isn’t a troll and what is and isn’t fake news. It just so happens that it appears they seem to view conservatives and Trump supporters as such. “What we’re talking about today are troll-like behaviors that distort and detract from the public conversation on Twitter,” the post states. “We’re tackling issues of behaviors that distort and detract from the public conversation in those areas by integrating new behavioral signals into how Tweets are presented.” In my book, that’s called ‘censorship’.

Vice is the outlet that broke this story in the first place. They are now reporting that as of last Thursday, prominent Republicans no longer seem to be shadow banned. That would include the Republican Central Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel, Reps. Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan and Matt Gaetz, and Trump Jr.’s spokesman Andrew Surabian. The search menu also did not display the verified profile of Rep. Devin Nunes of California.

From Vice:

“The Republican Party chair Ronna McDaniel, several conservative Republican congressmen, and Donald Trump Jr.’s spokesman no longer appear in the auto-populated drop-down search box on Twitter, VICE News has learned. It’s a shift that diminishes their reach on the platform — and it’s the same one being deployed against prominent racists to limit their visibility. The profiles continue to appear when conducting a full search, but not in the more convenient and visible drop-down bar. (The accounts appear to also populate if you already follow the person.)

“Democrats are not being “shadow banned” in the same way, according to a VICE News review. McDaniel’s counterpart, Democratic Party chair Tom Perez, and liberal members of Congress — including Reps. Maxine Waters, Joe Kennedy III, Keith Ellison, and Mark Pocan — all continue to appear in drop-down search results. Not a single member of the 78-person Progressive Caucus faces the same situation in Twitter’s search.

““The notion that social media companies would suppress certain political points of view should concern every American,” McDaniel told VICE News in a statement. “Twitter owes the public answers to what’s really going on.”

“Presented with screenshots of the searches, a Twitter spokesperson told VICE News: “We are aware that some accounts are not automatically populating in our search box and shipping a change to address this.” Asked why only conservative Republicans appear to be affected and not liberal Democrats, the spokesperson wrote: “I’d emphasize that our technology is based on account *behavior* not the content of Tweets.””

It is troubling and very concerning that it was happening in the first place and that it took an honest media outlet to uncover and stop it. So far, Twitter is not commenting on all of this. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California told VICE News in a statement, “The bias has to stop.” Yes, it does and should never have been an issue to begin with according to the Constitution. It’s called free speech.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

Published

* By

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

...

* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
