James O'Keefe from Project Veritas was permanently banned from Twitter on Thursday!
PV had just released a major exposé on CNN‘s propagandistic policies. I'm not even being hyperbolic: go check it out.
Twitter had previously suspended the PV main account, but suspended O'Keefe's account as well, claiming he had impersonated someone else.
Here's what PV had to say:
Twitter permanently suspended James O'Keefe's personal account on the platform today, following a series of bombshell undercover videos of a CNN employee
The tech giant dealt a blow to the First Amendment and did the unthinkable by removing the account saying, "You can't mislead others on Twitter by operating fake accounts," and "You can't artificially amplify or disrupt conversations through the use of multiple accounts."
...This comes only months after Twitter suspended the accounts of both Project Veritas and Project Veritas Action. This also comes at a time when O'Keefe's account was on the verge of reaching 1,000,000 followers.
Here's O'Keefe‘s personal statement:
I am suing Twitter for defamation because they said I, James O'Keefe, ‘operated fake accounts.' This is false, this is defamatory, and they will pay. Section 230 may have protected them before, but it will not protect them from me. The complaint will be filed Monday.
It's worth noting that PV has never lost a court case against the many people who have defamed them. They just owned The New York Times in one such case.
Good luck, Jack Dorsey. You're going to need it.
