Big Tech Censoring Even the Left By Brian Simpson
The film, Planet of the Humans by socialist Michael Moore, has been taken down by YouTube. All the film does is question the religion of renewable energies, and one would have thought that this would be permitted under even a minimum level of free speech, but no, the film upset the present environmental status quo. That is how bad things are.
“Michael Moore and Jeff Gibbs’s latest documentary film, Planet of the Humans, has been removed from YouTube, where it had been streaming for free. It was taken down following a copyright claim over four seconds of footage contained in the film. Prior to its removal, the video had accumulated more than 8 million views. Produced by Moore and written, directed and produced by Gibbs, Planet of the Humans made the contentious argument that green energy sources, such as wind power and solar power, are ultimately unsustainable. Gibbs provided a statement to Deadline after the film was taken down from YouTube. “This attempt to take down our film and prevent the public from seeing it is a blatant act of censorship by political critics of Planet of the Humans,” he wrote.” It is a misuse of copyright law to shutdown a film that has opened a serious conversation about how parts of the environmental movement have gotten into bed with Wall Street and so-called ‘green capitalists.’” “There is absolutely no copyright violation in my film. This is just another attempt by the film’s opponents to subvert the right to free speech.” “We are working with YouTube to resolve this issue,” Gibbs continued, “and have the film back up as soon as possible.”
Four seconds of film does not seem much. Then we have even Donald Trump getting fact checked:
“President Donald Trump warned Tuesday the 2020 election would be “rigged” thanks to Democrats pushing mail-in ballots during the coronavirus pandemic. “This will be a Rigged Election. No way!” Trump wrote on Twitter and Facebook. The president predicted mass voter fraud in 2020, thanks to Democrat officials using the pandemic to institute mail-in voting. “There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent,” he wrote. The president pointed to California’s governor Gavin Newsom who signed an executive order to mail ballots to all voters in the November 3 general election. “Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged and even illegally printed out and fraudulently signed,” Trump said. The Republican National Committee, National Republican Congressional Committee, and California Republican Party have filed a lawsuit to block the action, arguing that it is unconstitutional. Trump warned that Democrat activists would use the mail-in vote option to generate more votes for their party. “That will be followed up with professionals telling all of these people, many of whom have never even thought of voting before, how, and for whom, to vote,” he wrote.”
And, this pathetic duck will do nothing, because Jared has probably told him to stand down and just keep paddling in the swamp, and maybe the duck hunters will not have him for dinner.
“Twitter added a link to “get the facts” about mail-in ballots after President Trump tweeted out widely-held concerns about the potential for voter fraud. The Twitter-curated “moment” is filled with mainstream media articles from CNN, Washington Post, and other outlets calling Trump a liar. “The Governor of California is sending Ballots to millions of people, anyone living in the state, no matter who they are or how they got there, will get one,” continued Trump. “That will be followed up with professionals telling all of these people, many of whom have never even thought of voting before, how, and for whom, to vote. This will be a Rigged Election. No way!” People trying to view Trump’s tweets on Twitter will see a link added by the site beneath them saying “get the facts about mail-in ballots.” Clicking on the link takes Twitter users to a Twitter “moment” (a collection of tweets and links) curated by the company itself and filled with mainstream media articles from CNN, Washington Post, and other outlets calling President Trump a liar. This is reportedly the first time the social media platform has branded Trump’s tweets with a link to a fact check of this type. The top article is a piece from CNN Opinion, calling the President’s claim “unsubstantiated” and claiming that mail-in ballots “very rarely lead to voter fraud.”
As Breitbart News’ Charlie Spiering has reported, the Trump campaign has substantiated its concerns with mail-in voting, contrary to what the Twitter-backed CNN article claims. The president’s re-election campaign responded quickly to Acosta’s request, noting there were nine people charged in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas with “vote harvesting” and mail ballots, a political operative in New York stealing and submitting absentee ballots, and a resident in Pennsylvania receiving seven separate ballots in the mail. The campaign also shared a Heritage Foundation document of over 1,000 proven cases of vote fraud. “Democrats and the mainstream media always scoff at claims of voter fraud, but then completely ignore evidence from across the country,” Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement. “The obvious reason is that Democrats are just fine with the possibility of voter fraud. And many in the media just see the world their way.”
There are numerous internet sites dealing with the voter fraud issue, that even some academics recognise as a problem. And, if the ever-pathetic Trump does not do anything, he will lose from this alone, and spend he rest of his life in a cage, sort used to transport poultry.
