Conservative pundit Dave Rubin has revealed he was suspended from Twitter for simply tweeting about famed Canadian psychology professor and philosopher Jordan Peterson’s own Twitter suspension.
On Tuesday, Rubin issued a statement on other social media platforms revealing his suspension and asking potential Twitter owner Elon Musk to help rid the platform of ‘woke activists’ pushing ‘big tech censorship’. against points of view with which they do not agree.
In the statement, Rubin wrote, “I was suspended by Twitter for posting a screenshot of Jordan Peterson’s tweet which suspended him.”
“While it is unclear how I violated their terms of service,” he continued, “it is clear that they are breaching their fiduciary responsibility to their shareholders by leaving a group of activists Woke run the business.”
TWITTER SUSPENDED JORDAN PETERSON AFTER HE TWEETED ABOUT ELLIOT PAGE
A screenshot provided by Rubin, which was shared by conservative users on the social media platform, showed Twitter’s opinion to the expert. The notice included the text of Rubin’s tweet regarding Peterson as well as a removal notice for said tweet.
Rubin’s offensive tweet from June 29 read, “Twitter madness continues. @jordanbpeterson was suspended for this Ellen Page tweet. He just told me he will ‘never’ delete the tweet.”
Rubin added, “Paging @elonmusk…” at the end of his tweet, hoping to catch the attention of the billionaire CEO who is seeking to buy Twitter and revamp the company to better protect free speech.
On June 22, Peterson tweeted that trans actor Ellen Page (she now identifies as a man named Elliot) underwent gender reassignment surgery performed by a “criminal doctor.” He wrote: “Remember when pride was a sin? And Ellen Page just had her breasts removed by a criminal doctor.”
Peterson was promptly suspended from the platform that day.
In Rubin’s July 5 statement, he also expressed hope that Musk’s purchase of Twitter “comes to fruition so that he can blow up their servers and humanity can overcome this pervasive, twisted, and self-imposed”.
The commenter mentioned that he would still post on his other social media platform. “In the meantime, you can find me at rubinreport.locals.com, the platform I created to fight big tech censorship…something we need more than ever.”
TWITTER, FACEBOOK, GOOGLE HAVE REPEATEDLY CENSORED CONSERVATIVES DESPITE LIBERAL DOUBTS
Rubin’s allies on the platform criticized Twitter for its treatment of him.
Holy Sh– @RubinReport has been suspended for posting about @jordanbpeterson’s suspension. How did he even break any rules?” wrote freelance journalist Tim Pool.
Conservative author John Cardillo tweeted: “@RubinReport, who follows all the rules and is an absolute class act, has been suspended for tweeting about Peterson’s abusive suspension. Thought Police demand absolute loyalty .”
New York Post columnist Douglas Murray tweeted, “So @RubinReport was suspended from Twitter for commenting on @jordanbpeterson’s suspension from Twitter. Does @Twitter intend to have a future? Also, this could he explain if Elliot was ever Ellen? already Bruce?”
“Peterson was referring to sex and the left’s attack on objective reality,” conservative author Erielle Davidson explained, adding, “And he got suspended for it. Dave Rubin was later suspended for discussing Peterson’s suspension. Orwellian nonsense. things tweeted by blue checkmarks.”
