Questions raised: Did Project Veritas video uncover possible criminal activity at Twitter?

As we reported earlier today, Project Veritas released a stunning video of Twitter engineers and others working to “ban a way of talking” through “shadow-banning” and algorithms allegedly designed to censor certain political opinions.  David Rosler, the maker of the faith-based 3D movie “Orbiter,” who was banned from Facebook after posting a Christmas card, telling the Conservative Firing Line during a conference call on Thursday that he believes the video may have uncovered possible criminal activity at the social media site.

According to Rosler, the statements made in the video indicate that Twitter employees possibly violated 18 U.S. Code § 241 – Conspiracy against rights.

That law reads:

If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or

If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured—

They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

Here are the two videos released by Project Veritas so far:

Here, engineers discuss shadow-banning and much more:

While content review is necessary, James O’Keefe said that it’s open to abuse.

According to Breitbart, direct messaging engineer Pranay Singh admitted to mass-banning accounts that express interest in God, guns, and America.

This lines up with Rosler’s statement to us that Twitter “has been running an online Krystallnacht against Christians.”  Worse yet, he said, they’ve been doing it for years.

Breitbart added:

“Just go to a random [Trump] tweet and just look at the followers. They’ll all be like, guns, God, ‘Merica, and with the American flag and the cross,” declared Singh, who was secretly recorded by Project Veritas reporters. “Like, who says that? Who talks like that? It’s for sure a bot.”

After being asked whether he could get rid of the accounts, he replied, “Yeah. You just delete them, but, like, the problem is there are hundreds of thousands of them, so you’ve got to, like, write algorithms that do it for you.”

“So if there’s like ‘American, guns,’ [in the account bio] can you write an algorithm to just take all those people out?” asked one undercover reporter.

“Umm, yeah, it’s actually how we do it,” Singh replied. “You look for ‘Trump,’ or ‘America,’ or any of, like, five thousand, like, keywords to describe a redneck, and then you look, and you parse all the messages, all the pictures, and then look for stuff that matches that stuff… You assign a value to each thing, so like Trump would be .5, a picture of a gun would be like 1.5, and if the total comes up above a certain value, then it’s a bot.”

When asked if the “majority of the algorithms” are “against conservatives or liberals,” Singh responded: “I would say a majority of it are for Republicans, because they’re all from Russia, and they wanted Trump to win.”

So, according to Singh, all Republicans are from Russia.

“So you would mostly just get rid of conservatives?” the reporter asked.

“Yeah,” he said in response.

Breitbart said that other former and current Twitter employees revealed Twitter’s censorship tools and tactics during O’Keefe’s investigation, with several individuals admitting to “shadow banning” pro-Trump accounts, conservatives, and so-called “shi**y people.”

Rosler applauded Project Veritas for their investigative report, but said he had “told the world” about this long before O’Keefe and others.

Rosler said Twitter’s actions have severely hampered his ability to finish his project, even though everything indicates the project should have raised much more than it has.

Here’s a 2D trailer of the movie:

According to the movie’s site Rosler said that after a series of radio interviews, his page “averaged 500 hits a day, with not one red cent showing up on the crowdfunding page(?!). Statistically impossible – the odds are many-millions-to-one…”

Those who wish to donate to his project can go here.  Rosler requested that those who choose to donate reach out to let his team know.

After Project Veritas released Thursday’s video, it seems Twitter took notice.  Rosler told us that they started getting likes and retweets for the first time in months.

According to Rosler, it’s the first time anyone has responded to his tweets — ever.

Rosler minced no words when he told us that the situation is “many times worse than what we’re seeing from Veritas.”
