Across all of social media, conservatives are disappearing faster than green beer in Boston, mid-March.
This is thanks to a concerted effort to change the rules of Free Speech on the internet by social media pioneers at Facebook, Twitter, and Google. No longer is “hate speech” considered incendiary, derogatory calls for discrimination. Now, “hate speech” can be something as simple as believing in a “conspiracy theory”.
Again, I feel that it needs to be said; I am not endorsing any conspiracy theories here. I am simply endorsing the conspiracy theorists’ right to speak. It’s in the Constitution, ergo, any action taken not in congruence with the First Amendment is invalid and unlawful by default.

And, similarly, I support the right of any American to say whatever they want. That includes filthy, vile, and reprehensible things. The problem is that conservatives are being held to a much different standard in today’s digital world.
Take Sarah Silverman, for example.
I hope you someday understand what it is to be held down against your will and violated. Your compassion is startless https://t.co/ujlTX8Wr9X

On the other side of the digital moat, however, the Twitter account the we use here at Constitution.com has been permanently suspended by Twitter after the Washington Post decided that their First Amendment rights were more important than mine.
Folks, I may not be long for this world of overt censorship and ideological fascism. I will say that it has truly been a pleasure to write for you, and I will say it now in case my transmissions are abruptly ended in the immediate future by obstructionist, radical liberals who attempt to banish me from the internet.
