Twitter shuts down conservative whistleblower, Project Veritas

TwitterTwitter permanently suspended the account of the conservative group, Project Veritas, and locked the account of its founder, James O’Keefe, whose whistleblower news outlet has exposed numerous scandals of the left over the years.

“[Project Veritas was] permanently suspended for repeated violations of Twitter’s private information policy,” a Twitter spokesperson confirmed to Fox News. “[James O’Keefe’s account was] temporarily locked for violating our private information policy, [and he is] required to delete the violative Tweet to regain access to their account.”

According to Fox, Twitter decided to lock both accounts 20 minutes after Project Veritas tried to challenge the censorship, as the accounts posted a video of Project Veritas journalist Christian Hartsock trying to question Facebook Vice President of “Integrity” Guy Rosen outside his home regarding alarming comments he uttered while in a video conference that were obtained by Project Veritas.

Twitter only getting worse

The executive was caught on a Jan. 7 Facebook video conference basically revealing Facebook’s ability to eradicate any speech not aligned with its agenda -- comments that it labels as offensive, hateful, or harmful.

“In the leaked video … Rosen [boasted that Facebook has a] system [that can] freeze commenting [on threads flagged as] hate speech or violence,” Fox News reported.

Twitter never responded to Project Veritas’ appeal of its questioned tweets – just sending it an email saying its account was suspended, as reported by a Fox source.

"Note that if you attempt to evade a permanent suspension by creating new accounts, we will suspend your new accounts," Twitter emailed Project Veritas, according to Fox News. 

O’Keefe insisted Twitter’s account of the situation was inaccurate.

[Twitter’s claim that my tweets] published private information [was] false … [and Twitter] invited [Project Veritas to appeal the decision],” the conservative watchdog told Fox News. "In an apparent act of retaliation for daring to question their authority, Twitter responded to our appeal by suspending our account, continuing to tell us that Project Veritas could delete the tweet and have our account reinstated."

Also mentioned was Twitter’s pre-election cover-up of the scandal over information obtained on Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden’s, laptop, revealing shady overseas dealings where they used political influence for lucrative financial gains.

"This is nothing new from Twitter – just last fall Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey admitted in Congress his company’s decision to block the New York Post was erroneous while still demanding the Post kneel before them by deleting the tweet,” O’Keefe added. “Here we go again – Twitter opting to delete news and demand fealty when their decision is dared to be questioned. I will not kneel. Twitter is wrong. Let them kneel."

Recalling a recent similar incident, O’Keefe said Twitter reinstated his account only after he removed a tweet containing a revealing video.

However, such censorship is nothing new, as O’Keefe’s group has exposed numerous leaks of internal conference calls in past weeks coming from different “whistleblowers,” including one in January showing Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey indicating that his company’s coming activities will be “much bigger” than its permanent suspension of Donald Trump before he left office.

"We know we are focused on one account right now, but this is going to be much bigger than just one account, and it’s going to go on for much longer than just this day, this week, and the next few weeks, and go on beyond the inauguration," Dorsey pointed out last month. "So, the focus is certainly on this account and how it ties to real-world violence, but also, we need to think much longer-term around how these dynamics play out over time. I don't believe this is going away anytime soon."

Protector or thief?

Twitter’s recent purge of QAnon “conspiracy theorists” was mentioned in the meeting as a small slice of its plans to silence the right and violate conservatives’ free speech to give full voice to the left’s narrative.

“[This is just one part of Twitters’] much broader approach that we should be looking at and going deeper on," Dorsey continued, according to Fox. "You know, the U.S. is extremely divided – our platform is showing that every single day, and our role is to protect the integrity of that conversation and do what we can to make sure that no one is being harmed based off that … and that is our focus."

Twitter continues to try and sell the idea that it is the bastion of justice and civility.

"The remarks shown in the video were delivered to our more than 5,400 employees and are nearly the same words Jack shared in a recent Tweet Thread offering context around and reflections on our to protect the conversation in recent weeks," a Twitter spokesperson informed Fox. 

Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and some fellow executives were also exposed by Project Veritas last week when footage revealed them conceding that they possess “too much power” and impressing their desire to work hand-in-hand with the Biden administration.

Just the beginning

Project Veritas is not Twitter’s only conservative target, as Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft and radio talk show host Wayne Allyn Root also had their accounts suspended – last weekend.

“There’s nobody to protect Wayne Root [and] there’s nobody to stop the IRS from coming after Republicans – there’s nobody to protect anything from anyone because [Democrats] own all the power now,” Root told The Western Journal in an interview Wednesday. “I just want you to understand you’re probably really angry, but you still don’t think it’s going to happen to you. Well, that was me a week ago. I’m telling you – it’s going to happen to you. So, I’m just telling you, they took me. Soon they’re coming for you.”

The irony of leftists saying, “The president’s a fascist,” about Trump when he did nothing to suppress free speech – only to champion it – was pointed out.

“Trump railed against ‘fake news,’ of course, but he did not spy on the media as former President Barack Obama’s administration did in relation to The Associated Press and then-Fox News reporter James Rosen,” The Western Journal noted in a separate report.

In a September 2018 article titled, “AP FACT CHECK: Obama doesn’t always tell the straight story,” his manipulation of the press and misrepresentation of the facts was revealed.

“Former President Barack Obama’s recent denunciation of President Donald Trump’s treatment of the press overlooks the aggressive steps the Justice Department took to keep information from the public during his administration,” AP reported at the time. “Obama also made a problematic claim that Republican ‘sabotage’ has cost 3 million people their health insurance.”

In fact, it was Trump who went out of his way to make sure that Big Tech giants did not shape the narrative in their political bent’s favor.

“Trump along with Republicans in Congress sought to hold social media companies – like Facebook and Twitter – to account for the censorship and bias directed against conservative outlets,” The Western Journal stressed.
