In today’s hyper-Leftist social media environment it has become all too clear that pro-Trump, right-leaning, independence-minded media have no chance of getting equal access or fair treatment.
The founders of Facebook, Google, Twitter, and YouTube are committed libtards who had no problem using the free market to introduce and grow their platforms into the behemoths they have become, only to then use their newfound influence and power to ban views and opinions of those they culturally, socially, and politically disagree with.
What’s more, the proof of this incredible bias now comes on a daily basis, making it impossible for rational people to deny the realities that Left-wing social media censorship is a real thing that is aggressively practiced.
Case in point, as noted by The Gateway Pundit’s Christina Laila, Twitter recently banned conservative journalists who dared to tweet three words: “Learn to code.”
“Last week, reporters said they heard through the grapevine that Twitter would begin taking action against accounts for telling people ‘learn to code’ and now it’s actually happening,” Laila wrote.
Why? What’s so offensive about “learn to code?” According to Twitter’s speech Nazis, it’s “harassment.” (Related: Rep. Matt Gaetz going after Twitter with FEC complaint for ‘shadow banning’ conservatives.)
Laila noted that Nick Short, a correspondent for Security Studies Group, was tossed from the platform Friday after tweeting, “Lawfare flips out after Nunes says reporters covering the Russia hoax will need to learn to code after the investigation is done. Journalists need to learn to take a joke before learning to code.”
Short later tweeted a screenshot of the Twitter ban with an accompanying caption that read, “Telling journalists they need to learn to take a joke before learning how to code will now get you locked out of your Twitter account. You won’t be able to access your account either until you remove the tweet in violation of their ever expanding rules.”

Meanwhile, Twitter refused to take action against L.A.-based DJ Micheal Buchanan, AKA House Shoes, who tweeted in regards to the Covington Catholic High teens, “LOCK THE KIDS IN THE SCHOOL AND BURN THAT B**CH TO THE GROUND.”
Twitter’s response? Nothing to see here because hate directed against pro-Life Catholic kids is just fine, The Gateway Pundit noted.
What’s the big deal about ‘learning to code?’ Stephanie Hamill at The Daily Caller explains that it’s considered “offensive” to tell laid-off journalists (from Left-wing news sites) “learn to code” — because they’ve been laid off from Left-wing news sites.
The hashtag began trending after the announcements that thousands of journalists had been laid off from various news organizations including Buzzfeed and the Huffington Post.
Dozens of journalists took to Twitter to announce they had been laid off, and some even used their tweets to try to get the attention of potential employers.
Some Twitter users seized the moment to give journos the same advice that was given to coal miners who were laid off during the Obama era thanks to overregulation: “Learn to code.”
The message: Left-wing activist journalism is good because it spreads Left-wing Marxist/socialist political ideology, but mining coal is mining a fossil fuel and fossil fuels are bad because…climate change.
Conservative Americans and anyone who supports POTUS Trump had best come to the realization that no amount of outrage at the hypocrisy and juvenile actions against us by the social media giants is going to change their behavior. The only answer is for someone on ‘our side’ to build platforms that rival theirs.
