Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe released clips earlier this week of a CNN employee admitting that the network pushes propaganda and that it had worked tirelessly to damage then-President Donald Trump’s reelection hopes. Two days later, the Twitter tyrants booted O’Keefe off the social media forum forever. Gone, not coming back.
As O’Keefe himself says, “They are all on the same team.”
Breaking: James O’Keefe of Project Veritas has been suspended by Twitter. This is pure censorship for political reasons because he has successfully exposed CNN, the media and Democrats. This is insanity. If you care about journalism, let @Jack know how you feel. pic.twitter.com/HuKpXNi3px

After the latest round of hidden camera videos embarrassing to CNN were released, @JamesOKeefeIII has been permanently banned from Twitter. The @Project_Veritas account was also recently banned. This is how big tech works with liberal corporate media to take down challengers.

“The account was permanently suspended for violating the Twitter Rules on platform manipulation and spam,” Twitter said in a statement explaining its decision to The Post Millennial.
Twitter and its Big Tech partners have less than an ounce of credibility at this point. Last fall, Twitter and Facebook hid a damning New York Post report on Hunter Biden’s laptop that could have changed the minds of a significant number of voters as it involved Joe Biden. The Daily Mail has since said the story was accurate.
UPDATE at 6:22 p.m. ET: When Mediaite asked about the decision, a Twitter spokesperson said, “You can’t mislead others on Twitter by operating fake accounts and you can’t artificially amplify or disrupt conversations through the use of multiple accounts.”
Though many still believe that O’Keefe’s removal was directly related to his CNN exposé, Twitter says otherwise.
