When Linkedin Censored Me I knew I Was Doing Something Right

Since my website began supporting Donald J. Trump for President I knew that Facebook would drop me like the conservative hot potato that I and my contributors are.

What I didn’t expect is that Linkedin would do the same.

Linkedin Goes Woke

I recently received the following two emails from Linkedin customer support:

The first email was from Stewart.

The second email was from Savio. You see I created a new Linkedin account and they caught me once again. LOL!

Breitbart reported on February 2nd, 2021

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) announced a major push to curb Big Tech’s political bias and censorship today, with measures including a ban on the censorship of political candidates and mandatory opt-outs of content filters for citizens of the Sunshine State.

WATCH: Governor DeSantis’ remarks on BigTech begin at 15:01

In a 45-minute speech [above], the governor identified Big Tech companies as the leading threat to American democracy and freedom of expression today, and pledged that Florida Republicans would take action.

The new regulations announced by DeSantis include:

  • Mandatory opt-outs from big tech’s content filters, a solution to tech censorship first proposed by Breitbart News in 2018.
  • A private right of action for Floridian citizens against tech companies that violate this condition.
  • Fines of $100,000 per day levied on tech companies that suspend candidates for elected office in Florida from their platforms.
  • Daily fines for any tech company “that uses their content and user-related algorithms to suppress or prioritize the access of any content related to a political candidate or cause on the ballot.”
  • Greater transparency requirements.
  • Disclosure requirements enforced by Florida’s election authorities for tech companies that favor one candidate over another.
  • Power for the Florida attorney general to bring cases against tech companies that violate these conditions under the state’s Unfair and Deceptive Practices Act.

This is the widest and most aggressive range of regulatory and legislative solutions so far proposed by any U.S. state to tackle the problem of tech censorship.


To say I was shocked is to put it mildly.

Has Linkedin gone woke? I asked myself.

Have they joined other social media techies in scrubbing those who they politically disagree with?

But what the heh. I guess posting a quote from Biden, posting a link to an article questioning Covid vaccines and just telling the truth are now violations of the “LinkedIn User Agreement and Professional Community Policies.”

To bad. So sad. But not to worry. I am now on the following social media platforms:

Please join me on one or on all of the above social media platforms that embrace freedom of speech.
