If there is anything former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) has learned throughout the Twitter Files saga, it is that America’s federal agencies – most notably the FBI – are anathema to the Constitution and the protections it is supposed to afford to We the People.
In Paul’s estimate, the FBI views the Constitution and the First Amendment specifically as “an annoyance and an impediment.” This is why the federal agency embedded itself within the Twitter ecosystem and basically turned the social media platform into one of its many proxy subsidiaries.
“The FBI, we now know, was obsessed with Twitter,” Paul wrote in his weekly column.
“We learned that agents sent Twitter Trust and Safety chief Yoel Roth some 150 emails between 2020 and 2022. Those emails regularly featured demands from U.S. government officials for the ‘private’ social media company to censor comments and ban commenters they did not like.”
Numerous other federal agencies joined the FBI in this operation under the banner of the Foreign Influence Task Force, or FITF. This U.S. government entity expressly guided Twitter in its censorship agenda, hand-selecting each account and tweet that it wanted banned, in many cases.
“The Department of Homeland Security brought in outside government contractors and (government-funded) non-governmental organizations to separately pressure Twitter to suppress speech the US government did not like,” Paul added.
“U.S. federal government agencies literally handed Twitter lists of Americans it wanted to see silenced, and Twitter complied. Let that sink in.” (Related: Paul has long warned that America’s financial system is a Ponzi scheme well overdue for a collapse.)
Two-thirds of America recognizes that Twitter and its deep state handlers censored truth to steal the 2020 election
Had anything close to this large of a scandal been occurring under the presidency of Donald Trump, it would have been plastered all over the global media as the biggest scandal ever to occur.
Since Brandon and his cronies are the ones behind it all, the globalists are doing their best to sweep it under the rug as a non-issue. Too many people know about it, though, and it does matter to the tens of millions of Americans who have been watching the saga unfold.
“What is interesting about these Twitter revelations is how obsessed the FBI and its government partners were with satire and humor,” Paul explained. “Even minor Twitter accounts with small numbers of followers were constantly flagged by the Feds for censorship and deletion.”
“But knowledge of history helps us understand this obsession: in Soviet times the population was always engaged in joking about the ineptitude, corruption, and idiocy of the political class. Underground publications known as samizdat were rich with satire, humor, and ridicule.”
“Tyrants hate humor and cannot withstand satire. That is clearly why the FBI (and CIA) was determined to see a heavy hand raised against any American poking fun at the deep state.”
Try as they might to silence everyone critical of the regime – good luck with that – the FBI, Twitter, and all the rest will ultimately fail. A recent poll found that an astounding two-thirds of the country now believes that Twitter was, in fact, involved in censoring the truth to help the deep state steal the 2020 election.
“Some 70 percent of those polled believe Congress must take action against this corporate / state censorship,” Paul said.
Since it is now undeniable that the FBI and other (un)intelligence agencies have been using “private” social media companies like Twitter to control Americans’ free speech, Paul believes that they should be dismantled as the threat to freedom that they are.
“We do not need the FBI and CIA and other federal agencies viewing us as the enemy and attacking our Constitution,” Paul argued. “End the Fed … and End the Federal Bureau of Investigation!”
