Elon Musk dropped the 6th set of Twitter files and produced another bombshell story. “The FBI was working with Twitter, censoring and banning accounts of conservatives and others that went against the narrative driven by the work left.
This is of great concern given they were playing thought police, and canceling anything they deemed to be a threat to the Biden campaign. Every American, regardless of party affiliation should be on the phone demanding action be taken. The consequences of not, is a direct threat to our democracy.
They even call themselves the “National Election Command Post (NECP)”. Let that sink in for a minute before responding because that in itself is the fabric of a totalitarian regime.
In a Fox News Report on the situation, they reported;
In one situation, “In an internal email from November 5, 2022, the FBI’s National Election Command Post, which compiles and sends on complaints, sent the SF field office a long list of accounts that ‘may warrant additional action,’” Taibbi wrote on Twitter.
In the Tweet, the independent journalist shared a screenshot of an email dated November 5, 2022, from the FBI’s National Election Command Post to the agency’s field office in San Francisco, where Twitter headquarters is located.
The National Election Command Post (NECP), wrote that it was “made aware of Tweets by certain accounts that may warrant additional action due to the accounts being utilized to spread misinformation about the upcoming election.” The account belonging to Billy Baldwin, who is the brother of Alec and Stephen Baldwin, was included on the list.
In the email, the NECP requested “coordination” with the tech company to “determine if the accounts it identified had violated Twitter’s terms of service and may be subject to any actions deemed appropriate by Twitter.”
It also requested the “issuance of preservation letters regarding the accounts identified below in order to preserve subscriber information and content information pending the issuance of legal process.”
In addition, the NECP requested “any location information associated with the accounts that Twitter will voluntarily provide to aid the FBI assigning any follow-up deemed necessary to the appropriate FBI field office.”
In the next tweet, Taibbi posted a screenshot of an email from Nov. 6 in which an FBI San Francisco agent forwarded the list to “Twitter folks.”
A Twitter employee responded the morning of November 8, indicating which accounts had been suspended, either temporarily or permanently, and which had had tweets removed.
Baldwin’s account was not suspended in the action, and Twitter also spared several other accounts that the FBI had named, including RSB Network.
“Twitter then replied with its list of actions taken. Note mercy shown to actor Billy Baldwin,” Taibbi wrote in the next tweet.
End of Fox report
The actions taken by the FBI, to censor Americans and submit request for further action, raise a ton of ethical and legal questions that will be gone through for years to come. We have watched department after department, used as a political weapon against anyone associated with former President Donald Trump.
If this is the standard we allow to be set, I assure the other party will use these tactics when given the opportunity. There is no greater suppression, than driving fear into anyone who dare challenge the party who controls these departments. I personally will never run for a public office due to the fact, my opponent could come after me for any legal reason they can to have me removed.
This is exactly how democracies are destroyed. Just ask Venezuela or Germany.
