Andrew Mark Miller, Social Media Producer for The Washington Examiner, repots that, “Twitter condemns Uganda for blocking social media apps and censoring internet before key election.”
You have to be kidding us!
You have to be kidding us, right, Twitter?!
Well, apparently not.
“Twitter [and their goofy CEO, Jack Dorsey] is openly condemning internet service providers blocking social media apps in the run-up to an election in Uganda, as it takes criticism for alleged censorship on its own platform.”
There is NOTHING “alleged” about Twitter’s censorship leading up to the 2020 presidential election in the United States.
Let’s just get that straight.
‘“Ahead of the Ugandan election, we’re hearing reports that Internet service providers are being ordered to block social media and messaging apps,’ the social media giant posted in a statement on Tuesday.”
‘“We strongly condemn internet shutdowns – they are hugely harmful, violate basic human rights and the principles of the #OpenInternet,’ the statement continued.”
“The company argued that ‘access to information and freedom of expression, including the public conversation on Twitter, is never more important than during democratic processes, particularly elections.’”
Please don’t tell us you read what you wrote to the Ugandan government, and then sent it to them anyway with a clear conscience.
Please don’t try and tell us that you actually believe what you wrote there.
YOU CANNOT BE ANYMORE HYPOCRITICAL OR DISINGENUOS THAT TWITTER WAS IN ITS STATEMENT TO UGANDA!
I’ll say it again…, YOU CANNOT BE ANYMORE HYPOCRITICAL OR DISINGENUOS THAT TWITTER WAS IN ITS STATEMENT TO UGANDA!
“Last year, Twitter was widely criticized for censorship on its platform, including the spiking of a bombshell New York Post story on President-elect Joe Biden’s son Hunter’s business dealings [with The Ukraine, Russia and China].
“In recent weeks, the social media platform was slammed by conservatives after the company permanently banned President Trump and appeared to purge tens of thousands of followers from many prominent conservative accounts.”
And Twitter said that, “access to information and freedom of expression, including the public conversation on Twitter, is never more important than during democratic processes, particularly elections.”
And, again…, YOU CANNOT BE ANYMORE HYPOCRITICAL OR DISINGENUOS THAN IN YOUR STATEMENT TO UGANDA!
You just can’t be.
“Conservatives on Twitter quickly blasted the social media company in response to the Uganda statement.”
‘“Are there no mirrors at twitter,’ Blaze social media editor Jessica O’Donnell tweeted.”
‘“You don’t say…’ Spectator USA contributor Stephen L. Miller sarcastically responded.”
And, ‘“What kind of monsters would block the right to free speech!!!’ policy writer and commentator Anuraag Saxena tweeted. ‘Oh wait!’”
“Twitter declined to answer a request for comment from the Washington Examiner.”
“Uganda has banned social media and stepped up security days before the presidential election between President Yoweri Museveni and his challenger Bobi Wine [Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu]. Museveni apologized for the move but claimed he had ‘no choice’ after Facebook removed several posts supporting his party.”
I guess censorship deserves to be censored!
How can you argue with that?!
