Watch at as President Trump blasts Twitter for “shadow banning” conservatives

President Trump is finally cracking down on a deceptive practice known as “shadow banning” that social media platforms like Twitter are using to essentially silence conservative voices online.

As we recently reported, many prominent conservative politicians have been noticing that their accounts aren’t showing up in search results – which is all too convenient, considering this is mid-term election season.

Twitter apparently fixed the “problem,” but only after it started getting mainstream attention – and specifically after the President himself made an announcement about it, explaining that he would be looking into the “illegal practice.”

“Twitter ‘SHADOW BANNING’ prominent Republicans. Not good. We will look into this discriminatory and illegal practice at once! Many complaints,” President Trump tweeted on July 26.

Should Trump have addressed shadow banning earlier?

WGON, in a recent video posted to, also brought up the issue, noting that while she’s happy about the president’s acknowledgement of the issue, she’s disappointed that it took this long for something to happen.

You can watch her video analysis below:

“My question is: why isn’t he going to take care of us average citizens for being shadow banned on Twitter and Facebook and YouTube and even our own websites?” WGON asks.

“He only steps up to the plate because prominent Republicans have been shadow banned. Well, at least we get to ride their coattails on getting this taken care of. It should have been done already, and he knew that this was going on. This has been public knowledge forever.”

She has a point, considering complaints about social media account censorship and full-on removal have been pouring in for the past several years. Many conservative social media users, including and especially on YouTube, have been trying to sound the alarm for a while now about anti-conservative bias.

“I’m just glad that he’s finally going to do something about it,” says WGON.

At the end of the day, social media is still controlled by the Deep State

While it’s great that something is finally being done, at least with regards to Twitter, there’s still the unfortunate reality that most of these social media platforms are still operated and controlled by “Deep State” elements that are anti-Trump and anti-freedom.

Will the President actually be successful in reforming these corrupt platforms, or is it all just a bunch of lip service? The fact of the matter is that there’s really only so much he can do, seeing as how Twitter, YouTube, and the others are all privately-owned entities.

“Nothing is going to happen, just like always,” contends WGON. “The Deep State is in control of the social media platforms, so they will be the ones to rule the roost, you might say.”

It’s a bit pessimistic, some might argue – especially in light of the fact that there are alternatives popping up these days. One of them is, of course, which we recently introduced as an uncensored, open-source alternative to YouTube.

The Deep State can’t control everything online, and this will only become increasingly more true as patriots wake up and switch to greener pastures. There won’t be any shadow banning going on at, just to be clear – so who’s ready to step up to the plate to develop similar alternatives to Twitter and Facebook?

“The notion that social media companies would suppress certain political points of view should concern every American,” says Republican Party Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, one of the individuals who was shadow banned by Twitter.

“Twitter owes the public answers to what’s really going on.”
