‘More censorship than Hamas’: Charlie Kirk tells Tucker Carlson that ‘Twitter Files’ part two confirms his suspicions of being censored after speaking out against pandemic shutdowns in 2020

  • Conservative commentator Charlie Kirk called Twitter a ‘Democratic super PAC’ while speaking to Tucker Carlson on Fox News about the latest ‘Twitter files’
  • Kirk described how he saw the interaction with his Twitter account disappear after he started tweeting skepticism about the COVID-19 lockdown measures in 2020
  • He told how he scoffed when he tried to draw attention to his account being censored, but said he finally had proof
  • Recently released Twitter files revealed the company had placed conservative commenters on a ‘search blacklist’ or had them ‘do not amplify’.

Conservative commentator Charlie Kirk joined Fox News host Tucker Carlson to discuss breaking news that Twitter had “blacklisted” his and other right-wing accounts.

Kirk told Carlson how his retweets and user interactions dropped drastically and suddenly in early 2020, and said the Twitter blacklisting revelations were proof of what he suspected the company of social media was doing from the beginning.

The blacklist news is the latest to come out of the secret “Twitter Files” documenting the platform’s censorship initiatives, which Elon Musk began posting as part of his vow to restore Twitter as a haven for free speech.

The latest batch of files revealed that conservative commentators such as Kirk and Dan Bongino and others who have questioned the prevailing COVID orthodoxy of lockdowns and mask mandates have been deliberately placed on a ‘search blacklist’ or under the “do not amplify” tab.

Speaking to Carlson, Kirk said the social media company censors him more than terrorist organizations because “they saw what I had to say as a direct threat to the regime”.

“Did the feds tell them to do it?” he asked, describing how he watched Twitter transform from a social media platform into a “Democratic super PAC.”

Kirk told Carlson how his account was retweeted at least 115,000 times a day before the pandemic. However, once he started tweeting his skepticism about the effect of the lockdown measures, he said his account interaction had fallen “off a cliff”.

“I’ve been called a conspiracy theorist, I’ve been smeared,” he said, recounting how many people reacted to his suggestions when Twitter may have censored his account for his opinions. .

“Now you see actual verified documents where my Twitter account has been tagged as not amplifying, NSFW – which I can only infer means unsafe work?” says Kirk.

“They treat my Twitter account with more attention and censorship than the Iranian Prime Minister, than Hamas, than people who cause real terrorism-type damage.”

“Now we have evidence to show that’s exactly why my Twitter account over the past two years has dropped 95% in terms of engagement.

“They saw what I had to say as a direct threat to the regime.”

“Did the feds tell them to do it?” Kirk asked.

“Was my Tweet somehow able to create a viral counter-message in what he wanted to see happen in 2020. We may never know.”

“But Twitter at its best, when it was truly something worth appreciating, and hopefully it will happen soon, was a place where heterodox ideas could spread instantly with manliness and hold powerful people accountable.

I happened to have had one of these accounts for years, and Twitter went out of their way to censor it and suffocate our account.
