Sunday’s suspension and banning of antiwar and libertarian Twitter users Peter Van Buren, Scott Horton, and Daniel McAdams is all over the media today, including on Drudge and Zero Hedge. In today’s special report we will bring all three together to tell what really happened…and more importantly, what it means to the future of social media and free speech.

Imagine. Your talking on your phone. Suddenly it cuts out.

Happening when your carrier doesn't like the conversation….

How hard would it be for you to come back as Peter Van Burnt or maybe Shirley Temple?

We the people have many enemies…but they can be condensed down into one ""CORPORATISM"' !!! Be it google or the corporate USA…it is this concept that errodes away privacy & freedom.

May I advise folks to watch a short video by Larken Rose called THE TINY DOT…then get out in the streets and boycott these dark corporations. No employess enter or leave their installations. How long can a evil entity function without their moral-less order followers. They are FEW…we are MANY !!!

Twitter is not used by the common people.
It is a tool used by celebrities wishing to voice immediate comments worldwide.
Comments that the common people can do just fine without. Social Media = Hype

Mastodon Social is said to be the Twitter alternative.

Stop using all Jew controlled media: Twitter and Facebook are the major ones for everyone to avoid like the plague. If you make them irrelevant to your life then the Jews who own them will have zero power over you. Social media companies need us to use their products and they fear becoming irrelevant to our lives. Punish them by not using them. I was on twitter before but since I've left it I've never been happier. Twitter is Jewish clap trap.

the left are the only ones despicable enough to make the reds appealing.

Old boy resembles Andrew Weil. These "private" platforms are on the payrolls of government intelligence agencies. The fact is that they are not not private.

Since most of us are in our own "bubbles," I just want to point out that these corporations – and the government itself – are shutting down voices on both the "right" and the "left." They are shutting down anyone who threatens the Official Narratives. If we allow this to devolve into "why do they only attack 'my side" and "why does the 'other side' only care when they are attacked," then we are doing precisely what the PTSB want us to be doing.

Peter this sucks but who cares, all the drones that have their eyes sealed shut aren't going to listen anyway and others who may have been on the fence get to witness this type of authoritarianism from the man, this is a major opportunity for a larger credible antiwar or at least neutral platform, somebody is going to make money on this!

Yet that Japanese chic can get away with her comments about white people and she works for The New York Times! What a joke.

Daniel McAdams was banned from Twitter? I can't even believe what I'm seeing here. I didn't know these other two guys but seeing them here for the first time….I am stunned. This is madness. I'm not on Twitter and I don't have to 2nd guess that choice anymore for a moment. The value of all three of you only skyrocketed on my chart.

The Founders established the republic without modern social media. If everyone interested in liberty "thought locally and acted locally," then social media would not even be a factor.

Kim Dotcom and others already working on Twitter et al replacements. Coming soon. The big social media sites will soon go the way of My Space.

James Corbett makes a very cogent argument about this issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqC82zmHccU

Libertarianism is all about property rights. Any social media company is free to ban or allow any content they desire. Anyone who finds this disagreeable is free to start their own social media forum and ban or allow content as they see fit.

Jon Dhoe

So why go on moaning and allowing this? We need to expand the First Amendment to include all speech platforms including search engines. No platform can ban speech and it shall not be held accountable for its comments/content up to the point of incitement, as it stands now by law. Saying Congress shall make no law is not enough. There is no point to having a First Amendment if all platforms can ban legitimate speech. Media law needs to be updated and speech needs better guarantees of the First Amendment's spirit, in the form of actual articulation.

Well, if they don't know that they like your tone, that's a TOS violation.

Disgusting censorship. It’s discrimination. Maybe they should ban themselves!

I love calling them "tattle tales"! So true – they are like little children… "I'm going to tell on you!" You totally capture the mentality of the left: they will talk ad nausea-um, and can't listen to another side for 30 seconds. It's like there's been no gain of maturity since kindergarten. But worse. 5 year olds quickly make up and become friends again. The left just wants rules for them, and separate rules for everyone else. Freedom of speech and violence for the left, hands tied and mouths gagged for the right. They need to all #walkaway!

I have every reason to move out of those major social media. This is why I am moving to FutureNet.

Wake up, folks – this is real. I still don't know why T*t er is such a big deal, but know this: all of those "big tech" companies aren't the friends of the people. They are spy-backed, ruling-class tools to either control the opposition or shut it down. Mostly just watching and monitoring, but lately, the message is not getting through to the right number of people so apparently drastic measures were called for. Bad strategic decision you might say, but people are so lazy these days…

Alexis Wilmot Porter

I note that all the "bad" people who get banned seem to get "anti-Semitic" chats or comments a lot – without any relation or relevance to the discussion at hand. Probably a deliberate poisoning of the well in advance.

Alexis Wilmot Porter
Guest

I'll say this: anyone out there who supports people like the above good men – please stop with the "Jew" stuff. Whether you think it is true or not, this kind of stuff is just gold for the censorship agenda. I personally think at least 70% of it is fake trolls put out by the censors themselves, but if there is even one person tainting the internet with this nonsense: shame on you.

If I saw Scott in the woods I'd run the other way holding my pants tight. Just kidding…love the beard. Anyway, don't use twitter…couldn't get an account because someone stole used my email to set it up. I ended up having them send me a password reset and I stole it back Haha.

CNN and NBC won't let me present my point of view, they're censoring me. LOL!

The power elite must be feeling quite insecure to be doing this.
