In a world gone mad, Big Tech banned the President of the United States. Now, President Trump has also been banned by little tech — specifically, an email service used to send campaign notices to inboxes of supporters. It likely won’t be the last.
The self-service account associated with the Donald Trump Campaign has been suspended as of today, January 7th, 2021.
Politicians, celebrities, and corporations use campaign Monitor to promote sales campaigns as well as political campaigns. The campaigns use email lists to reach as many people as possible to grow a list of contacts. Contacts on the list then received campaign newsletters, appeals for funds, and other emails to keep people engaged and increase website traffic.
Big Tech companies Twitter and Facebook blame the President for the breach at the Capitol on Wednesday, along with all the Democrats, some Republicans, and mainstream media.
Twitter banned the president permanently saying, “After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them, we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”
Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, announced that President Trump would be suspended indefinitely he is just too dangerous. Zuckerberg, peering down from the moral high ground, huffed:
We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great. Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.
Many of the president’s supporters recently migrated to Parler as Big Tech clamped down on the president and conservative speech. Parler uses Amazon servers, but Big Tech king Jeff Bezos is kicking Parler off his servers. Parler could be down for a week as the social media alternative works to secure servers elsewhere.
Liberals appear committed to wiping Trump and his supporters off of the web, from large tech conglomerates like Facebook to email service providers like Campaign Monitor. They won’t tolerate any communication they don’t control.
If Big Tech can take down a United States president, once touted to be the most powerful office in the world, they can take anyone down.
