February 4, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — In a recently leaked video of an internal meeting at Facebook, a top executive said that “ideally” governments should be ruling on issues such as the indefinite suspension of former President Donald Trump from the platform.

The video in question was part of a larger drop recently released by Project Veritas and includes a statement by the former U.K. deputy prime minister, and now the media giant’s vice-president for Global Affairs and Communications, Sir Nick Clegg.

Referencing criticism from world leaders of Facebook’s decision to indefinitely suspend Trump from the platform, Clegg, a past leader of the Liberal Democrats in Britain, said: “Ideally, we wouldn’t be making these decisions on our own. We would be taking these decisions in line with and in conformity with democratically agreed rules and principles. And at the moment, those democratically agreed rules don’t exist. We still have to make decisions in real-time.” 

Commenting on the leaked videos, conservative media analyst Mark Dice added that Facebook is eager to work with governments to create rules governing online censorship, in order that their own policies will be enforced across all other social media platforms.

“In the fourth quarter earnings call with investors last week, Zuckerberg confirmed, what I've been telling you – that he wants the Democrat-controlled congress to amend section 230 of the Communications Decency Act mandating social media platforms to censor or moderate, as he says, ‘misinformation’ and ‘hate speech,’” Dice explained. 

“If you're wondering why he would want a law mandating what his site has to take down and what's not allowed, it's because he'll consult with the government to create that law and it'll be the exact same policies that they have now,” he continued.

“But the Facebook policies will become law, and what that'll do is it'll just bankrupt other free speech platforms like Gab, BitChute, Rumble, Parler, and others, because then the law will be selectively enforced when the government finds certain posts that violate the law. Then they'll just fine them into bankruptcy.”

Regarding Clegg’s mention of “democratically agreed rules and principles,” Jon Schweppe, Director of Policy and Government Affairs at American Principles Project, told LifeSiteNews that over the last few years “we have seen (from the left) a kind of … bastardization of what democracy means.”

PETITION UPDATE (2/23/21) - 

LifeSite has signed on to a Media Research Center (MRC) letter to all 50 state Attorneys General, calling for an investigation into Big Tech.

Google, Facebook, and Twitter have monopolized the industry, and are using their influence to collect user data, suppress content, and silence those who voice ideas and beliefs counter to their own.

As we urged prior, action must be taken to combat these efforts, and that is why we’ve joined the MRC in this fight.

Please take a couple of minutes to READ this LifeSiteNews article about MRC's initiative:

Then, please SIGN and STOP using Twitter, Facebook, Google (YouTube) and Amazon to take back your privacy and freedom of speech!



YouTube just completely removed the LifeSiteNews YouTube channel. This isn’t a ban, every single one of our videos is completely gone. Being completely removed from YouTube means we’ve lost access to 300,000+ followers.

This is the latest and appalling affront to free speech which is happening to many conservative and Christian organizations.

Please SIGN this petition and STOP using YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Google (owner of YouTube) and Amazon to take back your privacy and freedom of speech!

We are not going to take this lying down!

Thankfully, we have backups of all our videos:

You can watch our current videos on Rumble, here:

Twitter has again locked LifeSiteNews out of two of our accounts on the platform for displaying a message noting that President Joe Biden’s newly named Assistant Secretary of Health “Rachel” Levine is a man.

Both accounts displayed a simple message which read: “Biden names transgender ‘woman’ as Assistant Secretary of Health. ‘Rachel’ Levine is a father of two who divorced his wife in 2013 after 30 years of marriage.” The tweets also included a link to LifeSite’s article Biden names transgender ‘woman’ as Assistant Secretary of Health, and contained part of the opening sentence of that article, “Joe Biden has announced his intention to appoint a gender-confused man” as Assistant Secretary of Health.

For stating biological or Biblical truths, Twitter and Big Tech are trying to shut down conservative voices.

Therefore, it is now more important than ever to consider dumping Twitter, Google (who own YouTube) and Facebook. To be clear: LifeSite is still using Twitter and Big Tech to encourage others to migrate away from these illiberal platforms.

This is not the first time that LifeSiteNews has been censored by Twitter. In December 2019, Twitter indefinitely suspended our account for a tweet that linked to an article on transgender activist Jonathan “Jessica” Yaniv.

At the time, Twitter gave LifeSite the option to delete the tweet and reactivate our account right away. LifeSite remained steadfast that the tweet did not violate any of the company’s “rules and policies,” and sought several appeals with Twitter, while looking into legal action against the company.

And, while LifeSite's account was eventually restored, we must now consider what course of action we will pursue in this case, over and above appealing the ban.

Meanwhile, since taking office on Wednesday last week, Joe Biden has already signed an executive order which will force women’s athletic programs, restrooms, and locker rooms to be open to men. He has also turned back the Trump administration’s policy protecting women’s sports programs in schools.

Last week, LifeSite was banned for two weeks from our YouTube channel, after the site determined that one of our videos about vaccines violated YouTube’s “community guidelines.” We are also in the middle of appealing this ban.

Please considering SIGNING and SHARING this petition. Thank you!


Twitter just deplatformed President Trump premanently! And, other conservatives, including General Flynn and Sidney Powell, were also summarily deplatformed.

Conservatives, Christians and freedom-loving Americans of all political persuasions must now take a decision to preserve their free speech AND their ability to peaceably assemble by dumping Twitter and Big Tech, and by finding other good alternatives to communicate with each other and share their opinions.

Please SIGN our petition-pledge to Dump Twitter and Big Tech, and take back your freedom of speech and privacy. [CLICK HERE for our "Goodbye Google" resources page to find good alternatives to Twitter, Facebook, Amazon, and Google!]

When you use Twitter or Facebook to communicate, and, or, Google and Amazon to search for something online, these companies can stifle your ability to share your thoughts and opinions and manipulate your search results, threatening your privacy, your freedom of speech, and even our democracy.

Evidence suggests that Twitter and Facebook's 'community guidelines' are selectively enforced against conservatives and Christians, while Google rigs their search algorithms to direct traffic away from conservative and Christian websites, effectively choking traffic to those sites.

Simply put, Twitter, Facebook, Google (who owns YouTube) and Amazon appear to be actively suppressing access to pro-freedom, pro-family and pro-life news and opinion.

Don't contribute to this assault on democracy: Stop using Twitter, Facebook, Google and Amazon as your default social media platforms and search engine! [CLICK HERE to find a good alternative to Google.]

To repeat: a few liberal and completely unaccountable computer programmers in Silicon Valley are dictating what we do and do not see in our Twitter and Facebook feeds, and in our Google searches.

We, here, at LifeSite, also recently had our Twitter account suspended by the company over "misgendering" a man who claims to be a woman.

LifeSite has also experienced a fall-off in Google search-related traffic since the company updated its search algorithms at the beginning of May.

And, since the November election, Twitter and Big Tech appear to have dramatically INCREASED their censorship of conservatives and Christians as the President Trump disputed the results of the election and when evidence of election fraud began to mount.

Now, it seems likely that they are trying to cut-off conservative leaders (like President Trump) from conservatives on the ground, and effectively exclude us from the national conversation.

But, this tactic will not work. Because Twitter, Facebook, Google and Amazon are not the only game in town! There are a good number of excellent alternatives which we list in our 'Goodbye Google' Resources page.

The great irony is that, while Twitter, Facebook, Google and Amazon executives talk a lot about maintaining freedom of speech and diversity, in fact, these hypocrites are ATTACKING free speech point-blank!

This kind of manipulation poses a lethal threat to our democracy, but as we see so clearly now, Twitter and Big Tech have shown no hesitation in excluding conservatives and Christians from the public square.

So, at this point, the only way to stop Twitter, Facebook, Google and Amazon is to quit using their platform.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to pledge to stop using Twitter and Big Tech. Then, please CLICK HERE to find alternative search engines and social media platforms. Thank you!

'BREAKING: Twitter permanently bans President Trump from platform'

WATCH LifeSite's exclusive series - 'Big Tech vs Free Speech' - of interviews with experts on how Big Tech censorship is killing free speech

From YouTube to social media and beyond, online censorship is rampant. Read the latest articles covering this ongoing struggle:

The agenda to censor reflected in phrases such as “misinformation is a threat to democracy,” is self-contradictory, he explained. “It is democracy to have different opinions and to battle them out in the marketplace of ideas.”

“What they are saying basically is that you can ‘democratically’ setup rules to oppress a political minority,” Schweppe said.

“This is why our form of government is so brilliant, by having the Bill of Rights,” including the first amendment’s freedom of speech clause, which serves to protect “political minority groups,” he said. 

And thus, Schweppe concluded, “I think that this effort by the authoritarian left is a design to use ‘democracy’ to maintain their power and prevent their political opponents from ever gaining any sort of power again.”

In an email correspondence with LifeSiteNews, Dan Gainor, Vice President of TechWatch at the Media Research Center, offered another motivation for Facebook to push for government censorship of online speech.

He affirmed that for some time “Facebook has been begging regulators to restrict content” on social networks. If that happens, the tech giant “can work the rules in a way to limit new competitors and also censor conservative speech it doesn’t like.”

“Only huge companies have the financial and technical resources to moderate content at a large scale,” said Gainor. “So, regulations would effectively kill smaller social media operations before they could compete with Facebook.”

Schweppe agreed, stating any such censorship regulations are going to “benefit a huge company like Facebook over any of their smaller competitors,” because such regulations are “going to be really hard for a competitor to adhere to.”

Describing influencers in these decisions as “techno-fascist employees” at the social network “that want to see censorship of conservative ideas in mass on the platform,” and “democrats in power” who support the same “crackdown on speech,” Schweppe summarizes that this mindset is “part of the left’s … hatred of free speech and free expression. They’ve become a much more authoritarian movement. And Facebook is kind of the corporate wing of that.”

Gainor adds that the network is attempting to subvert the standards of free speech enjoyed by Americans, and gain a certain moral and legal legitimacy by applying instead “international standards” which are significantly more restrictive.

Recently, Facebook’s own Oversight Board ruled that they had gone too far in censoring an October post in France which promoted the use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) as a treatment for COVID-19. The social media platform removed the post last year, saying that it caused a “risk of offline harm” due to “misinformation.”

Despite enormous evidence that HCQ provides highly effective treatment for patients suffering from COVID-19, Facebook, along with other Big Tech monopolies have been censoring such information for months.

Last year, Facebook removed a hugely popular video by America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLD) in which they discussed the effectiveness of HCQ to treat COVID-19. After the video went “viral”, being viewed 17 million times in 8 hours, various Big Tech giants, including Facebook, removed it for violating their “misinformation” policies.

In a more recently released video AFLD founder, Dr. Simone Gold, explainedthe tremendous success HCQ has provided around the world including in India and Africa. 

“So, in America the death rates are in the 800 range per million,” she stated. “In Africa, Sub-Sahara Africa, the poorest places in the world, no social distancing, no mask, no ICU’s, they have a death rate of one percent the western nations. One percent!”

“Now I believe it is due to widely available HCQ. I don’t think you can explain it for any other reason,” she said.

white paper released by the organization provides thorough documentation demonstrating how “(c)ountries where HCQ is widely available … have 1-10 percent of the death rates of first world nations where HCQ is severely restricted.”

Noting the irony of her organization being aggressively censored on this topic for “risk of offline harm” due to “misinformation,” Dr. Gold tweeted: “Facebook just announced it ‘made a mistake’ when it censored studies showing HCQ saves lives. Censorship is never ‘a mistake.’ Tech executives repeatedly made a calculated decision, month after month, silencing physicians worldwide. Censorship kills.”
