Does Twitter believe in free speech? That’s the question Matthew Boyle tried to get Twitter executives at the Republican National Convention to answer, but, he said, they refused — even after being asked the question repeatedly for some eight minutes.
“After Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos—who was banned for life by Twitter—confronted the executives, I followed the two around and asked them repeatedly to answer the question: yes or no, does the company believe in freedom of speech?” he wrote.
Here’s his video of the confrontation, and it speaks volumes…
All they had to do was say either “yes” or “no,” but as you can see, they repeatedly dodged the question.
Since they refused to answer the question, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA)—the former chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform—did it for them.
“They totally believe in freedom of speech as long it’s their speech,” Issa told Breitbart News of the progressive social media company executives that are running Twitter.
Or to be more precise, they reserve free speech for some while severely curtailing it for others.
As we’ve reported time and again, Twitter has allowed leftists to issue tweets advocating the murder of prominent Republicans like Donald Trump, but bans conservatives for essentially nothing.
Paul Joseph Watson sums up the whole controversy quite well in this six-minute video:
- Twitter silences Milo Yiannopoulos for surfing while conservative, lets liberal trolls harass conservative
- Black Lives Matter supporters celebrate Dallas shootings on Twitter
- Black Lives Matter, Islamists celebrate Baton Rouge murders on Twitter
- Liberals on Twitter respond to GOP victory: Kill Republicans
- Twitter enlists ‘gay’ thought police
