TWITTER LOCKS NEW YORK POST'S ENTIRE ACCOUNT, BLATANTLY ENGAGING IN MONOPOLISTIC RESTRAINT OF TRADE

And New York Post editor Sohrab Amari has had his account suspended.

Earlier, friends reported they were being forced by Twitter to unfollow him -- again, illegal interference in competition in another field, namely, the fields of news media and information.

Update: A commenter tells me that this is not Sohrab Amari's actual account, but a parody one.

That doesn't cancel my friends' reports that they were being forced to unfollow Amari's actual account.

And yes, the NYPost's main account is now locked.

They've shut down an opposition newspaper -- which is the first step for any fascist junta.

...

Update:

@SohrabAhmari

Thinking about the sad-sack fusionist right liberals who are my adversaries and their dreams of neutrality. HA HA HA HA.

There is no neutrality in a civil war.

...

We have told them for years that this was coming -- turnkey fascism.

Turnkey fascism which the GOP enabled every single year by reassuring the Tech Monopolists that they could do whatever they liked, and the corporate-donor-servicing organization called "The GOP" would always protect them.

Even if they blatantly discriminated against the GOP's supposed clients, conservatives and Republicans. (Note: the GOP's real clients are corporations and billionaires who embrace a socially-liberal, corporate-supremacist libertarian position.)

Even if they blatantly attack the GOP itself.

Now the election, and the tech monopolies are going all-in -- just as we warned these corrupt fuckers in Conservative, Inc. -- and are emboldened to go Full Orwell because they know this is, in fact, the Last Election we'll ever have.

They'll never face the threat of legal action again, and they know it.

They just have to win this election for their Democrat coconspirators, and then they will have a permanent monopoly status locked-in and blessed by Democrat Party-owned United States of America.

People often don't know what gets you into trouble, antitrust-wise.

The problem with a monopoly is not that it's a monopoly. If it does not misuse its monopoly power, it's usually labeled a benign monopoly and no action is taken against it.

Monopolies break the law when they use their monopoly power (which includes the less-than-monopoly power of a dominant market position) to reduce competition.

The tech monopolies are obviously doing this. They are using their monopoly or dominant market position to interfere in the free operation of other markets.

Google -- which controls over 90% of the automated ad placement market -- has decided that ads cannot be run on the Federalist website, because they didn't like a comment written there.

That is illegal restraint of trade and a deliberate attempt to reduce competition in another field. That's illegal.

FaceBook and Twitter -- both monopolies in their respective fields -- have now decided that the New York Post should not be able to alert its followers to a major story it's broken.

Again, using a monopoly in one field to reduce the competition in another field.

But Establishment Corporate Republican have continuously reassured their corporate donors that they follow a bizarre interpretation of free competition in markets: That we should have free competition, until someone wins and becomes a monopoly, and then at that point, the monopolist is free to squelch all further competition, including in other fields of commerce.

That is not the law. I would like supposed "law and order" Republicans to explain why they are rejecting the law as currently written to impose this phony, never-passed law that we have free competition until someone wins, and then fuck free competition and accept what you're given, Slaves.

Will this episode finally wake Corporate Establishment Cash-and-Carry Republicans up?

Answer: No. Because they need the fucking money and wouldn't know what to do if they weren't being instructed by their billionaire patrons/bulls.

People say they don't want to interfere in the free markets.

Well, you can interfere a few times to stop the monopolists from interfering.

Or you can just permit the current system, of a dozen monopolists using their monopoly power to squelch any political expression they don't like.

And get banks and credit card transaction companies to boycott conservative speakers too.

This is interference in the free competition in the marketplace too, of course.

But Establishment Republicans are okay with this, like those at the disgusting National Review, because they're getting paid Cash Money from the tech monopolists to shill for the tech monopolists.


This sad pale c#ck and the corporate/billionaire owned Washington Examiner is worried:

There has been significant debate among conservatives regarding Big Tech censorship, with those such as myself fighting attempts to have government target Twitter and FB over bias. Thanks to actions taken by FB and Twitter today, my side is going to lose this battle. Badly.

He shouldn't be so worried. Republican office-holders and the permanent Republic DC swampstate will always have their filthy hands out for a bribe, and will always obey their monied masters' commands.

Hey, what other choice do Republicans have? To pursue an agenda that has actual popular support?!

Nah, Trump is trying that. And the Republican Establishment despises him for it.

So back to Plan A of endlessly pursuing an unpopular and unpatriotic agenda of selling out Americans in favor of Communist Chinese factory concerns, while taking billions of dollars from US corporations to ram this fucked-up traitorous system down our throats.

Look at this: An entire Twitter thread of censored material.
