Today, Twitter began purging right-wing accounts as part of their new policy against “hate speech” (defined as anything to the right of Karl Marx). Among the banned include Richard Spencer, Pax Dickinson, the Radix and National Policy Institute accounts, John Rivers, and Ricky Vaughn.
It’s clear that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is lashing out in revenge for the alt-right helping to elect Donald Trump as president; the only reason Twitter didn’t purge right-wingers before is because they assumed that Hillary Clinton would win. Pax predicted at the beginning of this year that Twitter would eventually remove all right-wingers from its platform, and he’s been proven to be right.
Given that I’ve been targeted by Twitter already—they tried to ban me over the summer to cripple my coverage of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions, and they began shadowbanning me due to my reports on the DNC leaks and John Podesta emails—I will almost certainly be purged along with Spencer and Pax. Here’s how you can stay in touch with me outside of Twitter and my blog:
Sign up for my mailing list: If you sign up for my mailing list, you’ll receive biweekly updates highlighting my best articles, and you’ll also get to hear about my latest projects before anyone else. I will never sell your information or spam you; I usually don’t send more than two to three emails a month, and I’ve never sent more than five or six. You can sign up for my mailing list by clicking here or filling out the form at the end of this post.
Follow me on Gab: Gab is a new, Twitter-like social networking platform that values free speech. All of the major right-wing figures banned from Twitter, such as Chuck Johnson, Pax, Spencer, Rivers and Ricky, are already on it. You can also follow Mike Cernovich, Stefan Molyneux, Paul Joseph Watson and other dissident figures there. You can follow me on Gab here; because the site is in beta, you’ll need to get on the waiting list before you can register an account.
Subscribe to my YouTube channel: My YouTube channel features all of my videos, and if you subscribe to it, you’ll be able to watch new videos before I post them on the blog. Check out my channel here.
Subscribe to my SoundCloud page: My SoundCloud page features every episode of The Matt Forney Show as well as This Alt-Right Life, the podcast I do for Right On. Subscribe here.
I also have an alternate Twitter account, @onemattforney. It will probably be banned along with my main account, but it’s still there at the moment. You can follow it here.
Stay tuned as this story develops.
Additionally, I will be doing a live YouTube stream with Davis Aurini and the Bechtloff tonight at 9PM EST (8PM CST/6PM PST) discussing Twitter’s Night of the Long Knives. You can watch the stream when it starts by using the window below, or you can click here to watch it on YouTube and join the chat. You can also use the window below to watch a recording of the stream after it ends.
P.S. Writing is my day job. I have no other sources of income, and independent reporting costs money. Getting banned from Twitter will significantly impact my ability to make a living and get the truth out.
