Manafort Trial: "Star Witness" Rick Gates Testifies That He's a Criminal: Judge Gets Salty With Prosecution | Main | Monday Overnight Open Thread (8/6/18 )

Oliver Darcy Brags That It Was Media Pressure, Such as That Exerted By Himself, That Got FaceBook, YouTube, and Apple to Ban InfoWars;
Now Pushes for Twitter to Ban InfoWars Too

Journalist or leftwing censorship activist?

Choose your lane.

Is he going to pretend he's reporting the news here, when he's obviously making the news, by pressuring companies into banning someone whose politics he doesn't like?

At the end of his advocacy in that first clip, he says now we'll wait to see if these standards are enforced against the right "and the left."

Yeah, I wouldn't count on Oliver Darcy applying similar pressure to these companies about, say, Antifa's violence-promoting accounts:

But I'm sure now that this oversight has been brought to this leftwing zealot's attention, he'll get right on that.

Sargon of Akkad says they're just going after the lowest-hanging fruit first.

But the precedents set here will be used to deplatform higher-hanging fruit.

They're coming for you soon.

They've decided that free speech is too dangerous to allow to anyone but themselves.

While they defend their fellow leftists' outright racism and promotion of real violence, not the #FakeNews type that makes the media wet its panties, they work diligently to censor anyone criticizing the press.
