Et tu, Facebook

Musings on social media censorship and the upcoming elections

by Thomas Wictor

When I opened my Facebook account, I told you that they would ban me immediately. I’m always right. So take THIS to the bank: November 6 will be a bloodbath for the Democrats. Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey will be blamed. Their ham-fisted censorship and transparent double standards will be cited as the reason the Democrats were wiped out.

I’ve seen Zuckerberg and Dorsey speaking in public. These are men with very limited intelligence. It’s clear that Trump’s Judas goats told Big Tech to crack down on dissent. The backlash is catastrophic for the Democrats, as Trump’s Judas goats knew it would be.

This tweet is all the evidence I need that Zuckerberg and Dorsey were misled.

I predict that after the midterms, there will be no need for the government to try to stop social-media censorship. Trump has indicated that his agents caused Twitter and Facebook to wildly overreach. As a result, Zuckerberg and Dorsey will be under massive pressure by DEMOCRATS to stop silencing dissent.

“You cost us the election!” will be the refrain.

So Twitter and Facebook will voluntarily stop banning people for dissenting opinions.

Even at this late date, most Americans can’t accept that everything has changed. There’s no need to fear the midterms. Republicans are absolutely slaughtering the Democrats in terms of early voting, absentee voting, and ballot requests. Democrats are speaking to empty rooms, while Trump is filling stadiums. I just watched a video by Ernesto Trump, a man who legally changed his last name because he sees himself as the president’s son.

Mr. Trump lives in Odessa, Texas, but he went too Naples, Florida, to attend his first Trump rally. He said he had a great time. This is the sort of thing that really makes me proud to be an American. We’re finally on track, after many false starts.

When Twitter banned me, none of the high-profile people who followed me did anything to call attention to what happened. In the end, most people lack the courage to dive in and give it their all. I don’t understand, but maybe it’s because I was never successful at anything I tried.

I’ve been using the past few days to put the finishing touches on a book that I will publish under a pseudonym. It’s almost certainly going to be a huge success—but I won’t be able to take credit for it. Ironically, being banned from Twitter and Facebook will actually help in a way that I unfortunately can’t reveal. I expect Youtube to be the next platform to ban me. That’s all right. My job there is done.

If I disappear from public visibility, it’ll be because I choose to not come back. After the midterms, Big Tech will be forced to loosen its stranglehold on the expression of ideas. I’ve been told that Gab has already found a new hosting company, but the problem is that by going on Gab, I became the target of Jew-hating fanatics willing to commit violence. So unless Gab changes its terms of use, I won’t be going back.

Over the past two years, I spent thousands of hours reassuring and explaining. It didn’t seem to stick.

After the midterms, I hope that the perpetually fearful and faithless Trump “supporters” finally accept that they’ve won.

Will I be back?

I don’t know.

People on both sides will have to change dramatically before I come back.

We’ll have to wait and see, as President trump always says.
