Twitter isn’t censoring accounts to keep users ‘safe’, it is using its power to spoon-feed the world establishment narratives

It’s one thing to have policies against violence, abuse, and harassment. But in “protecting” users, Twitter is hell-bent on censoring voices that rock the boat, even when all they have tweeted is a peer-reviewed scientific paper.

Last week, Simon Goddek, who has a PhD in biotechnology and researches system dynamics, tweeted a link to a scientific study titled, “Is a Mask That Covers the Mouth and Nose Free from Undesirable Side Effects in Everyday Use and Free of Potential Hazards?” 

Some time later, his account was frozen and he received a notice from Twitter that it would remain frozen until he deleted the offending tweet, and for the 12 hours following that. 

In his Telegram group, he wrote:

“I was put into Twitter jail for citing a peer-reviewed scientific paper. Cancel science is real. 

“What’s especially concerning is that I didn’t make any personal comment on the paper’s content. I only said that regarding that paper, masks CAN lead to massive health damages. It’s the conclusion of a scientific piece of work that has been peer-reviewed by at least 2 experts in the field.” 

According to Twitter, Goddek violated their policy on, “spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to Covid-19.”

The article in question wasn’t even as risqué as others and merely addressed undesirable side effects of mask wearing. How is that “misinformation”

I spoke with Goddek to learn more about what happened. Turns out, it’s not the first time. 

“The first time I got censored because I cited a scientific, peer-reviewed paper on masks. I was just citing their work, and I got put into Twitter jail. In that tweet, I was saying, ‘Look, it seems masks don’t work.’  So, I also said my opinion. 

“This time, I found another study on masks, which says there are adverse effects if you wear masks. So, I was citing the paper without putting my own opinion, and they censored me again, made me delete it and put me into Twitter jail again.” 

On April 17, Naomi Wolf tweeted she had been locked out of Twitter for the fourth time for sharing a Stanford study, “proving the lack of efficacy of masks.” That study was also peer-reviewed.

This isn’t merely a case of Twitter deciding that Goddek and Wolf were not in the position to be discussing the efficacy or dangers of masks. Twitter is censoring pretty much anything about Covid that doesn’t match the narrative promoted by the WHO, CDC, and other such bodies.

Even a well-known epidemiologist has faced Twitter’s wrath. An article in the American Institute for Economic Research noted:

“Harvard Professor Martin Kulldorff and co-creator of the Great Barrington Declaration, one of the most cited epidemiologists and infectious -disease experts in the world has been censored by Twitter. His tweet on how not everyone needs a vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 was not taken down. He had a warning slapped on it and users have been prevented from liking or retweeting the post.”

That article also emphasized: “Dr. Kulldorff serves on the Covid-19 vaccine safety subgroup that the CDC, NIH, and FDA rely upon for technical expertise on this very subject.” 

On April 10, a group called Drs4CovidEthics tweeted

“Not a month on Twitter & we were locked out of our account, forced to delete our pinned tweet. We must self-censor or be banned says Twitter (paraphrasing) We mustn’t contradict official sources. But our letters contradict official sources. With good reason. Which we can’t tweet.”

What do they know better than Twitter censors? They’re merely “doctors & scientists from 25+ countries, including heads of ICU, world leading immunologists, experts in public health, drug safety, respiratory illness, GPs, researchers in vaccines, pharmacology, virology, biochemistry…”

I searched for more examples of extreme Twitter censorship and found further censorship of vaccine related information, and one person’s hypothesis on why vaccine talk is so particularly taboo: “$157 billion buys a lot of Facebook and Twitter bans.” 

The popular independent website Off Guardian recently was locked out of Twitter for sharing one of its own articles on Covid vaccines, they told me. 

In fact, Twitter has been censoring Off Guardian for at least a year. When users try to open a tweet to an Off Guardian article, they are met with a warning that the link could be potentially spammy or unsafe.

The warning continues with a large blue button advising to return to the previous page, and a teeny tiny “continue” on to the article option. Same thing for the independent Canadian website Global Research.

Last year, I tried to tweet an article written by respected journalist F. William Engdahl for New Eastern Outlook (NEO). Twitter wouldn’t allow me to even tweet it, instead giving me an error message about the link being “potentially harmful.” 

And it’s not only matters of Covid. Just now, I tried to tweet another NEO article, not related to Covid, and was again met with the same message. 

A Twitter account focusing on the propaganda around Xinjiang had his account suspended.

And when the New York Post wrote exposés about Hunter Biden’s emails, Twitter locked the Post’s account.

Which makes it all the more clear this isn’t about “facts” or “safety” but blatant censorship. 

Whether or not you agree with a point or comment being made by one of the people censored by Twitter, we should be allowed to access their perspective, research for ourselves and come to our own conclusions. We don’t need Twitter to hold our hands and spoon-feed us establishment narratives. 

Twitter’s “rules” page reads:

“Twitter’s purpose is to serve the public conversation. Our rules are to ensure all people can participate in the public conversation freely and safely.” 

If you believe that, as the saying goes, I have a bridge to sell you.

  1. It’s not that MSM stands up for independent press and free speech in krautistan, but this DW documentary is quite interesting in context. You better watch it right now, since DW is notoriously deleting their own videos.

  2. “Which makes it all the more clear this isn’t about “facts” or “safety” but blatant censorship.” And ‘why’ are they censoring? Off Guardian, in fact, is a good (not perfect) site for learning about why they – let’s call them hoaxsters – are censoring so much information right now. Before March 11, 2020, they’d censor for all kinds of reasons, including the need for Syria’s enemies to hide the truth about their crimes. Now, the big focus is on medical information. Indeed, The hoaxsters have gone so far with this huge, harmful, covid 19 pandemic hoax that they can’t go back (as Monica Perez said to James Corbett). The hoaxsters who are in the highest positions of authority on this planet don’t fear (unwisely) too much, but they have thousands of servants who, while more powerful than the average man or woman, are capable of being sacrificed and going to jail or worse. Ergo…

    Eva must know about Klaus Schwab’s Great Reset, which rescues the Green New Deal which impact investors and assorted scammers are slavering for. She must surely know about Bill Gates’s decade of vaccines and his (sort of) dreams for a Pandemic II. Gangster politicians have handed their citizens over to the vampire of Big Pharma (aka the for profit, Nazi Rockefeller health care system) for them to feed on, and experiment on, forever. James Corbett brought to our attention an article by the Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben (which can be seen on the Medium channel of D. Alan Dean), in which Giorgio discussed Patrick Zylberman’s astute observation that we are rolling into a global biosecurity police State. Jeffrey A. Tucker calls it a new feudalism, which it will be exactly, since it (the Great Reset) will include central bank digital currency that won’t really even be currency, at least not for the majority. It’ll be credit, a la Chinese-style social credit. Oh those evil Chinese! whose evil system Western political ‘leaders’ are importing with glee. That’s feudalism. When you don’t have free access to your credit, and that credit is everything – life – that you could otherwise buy with physical cash, then you are enslaved. If your credit score is low, because you fail to bow to the war-making State sufficiently, then your life is restricted and can be restricted to the point of death. As one advert for Klaus Schwab’s new world order (aka hell) puts it, “You’ll own nothing and be happy.” The WEF had to yank that particular ad, I believe, after too many people objected.

    Censorship is not usually just for the sake of censorship, although self-modified creatures who no longer possess basic goodness do like to power-trip. Covid 19 has become a power-tripper’s paradise. Randolph Bourne’s observations (which we can read) of the way citizens behaved (pathetically) during war-time perfectly apply now. People are filling up their empty lives with covid 19 – and have joined the covid death cult. (If you doubt that their cult has anything to do with death, skip pharma funded tv and examine independent sources of information like “Vaccine Impact.”) Most censorship now has the goal of ensuring that the emerging new technocracy aka new world order aka Great Reset aka global biosecurity police State arrives unimpeded.
