(Natural News) Is telling the factual, scientific truth now off-limits online? It appears so, at least at Twitter where the Silicon Valley thought police recently deemed a tweet from four years ago that linked to statistics on sexually-transmitted disease (STD) spread among homosexual men to be “hate speech,” resulting in a complete shutdown of the “offending” account’s page.
It was the popular, pro-life news website LifeSiteNews that tweeted the information back in 2014 via Dr. Gerard M. Nadal, a molecular biologist and microbiologist who also serves as president and CEO of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer. Dr. Nadal’s tweet contained the “controversial” headline: “Why HIV, syphilis, and gonorrhea are rising among homosexuals,” followed by a link to supporting data, much of which came from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
According to LifeSiteNews, Twitter would not allow the news site to log into its Twitter account until the tweet in question was either removed, or an “appeal” was filed to Twitter. LifeSiteNews instead decided to publicly proclaim that, once again, Twitter is targeting user accounts that share inconvenient and “politically-incorrect” facts as part of a massive and ongoing censorship campaign.
“This total intolerance for even reporting government health dept statistics that reveal the health dangers of homosexual activity betrays what Peter Thiel, himself a homosexual, previously called a totalitarian mindset in Silicon Valley,” stated Steve Jalsevac, co-founder and president of LifeSiteNews in response to these egregious actions by Twitter.
“Twitter is now trying to force news agencies to report only what is acceptable to their personal, biased views and shutting down balanced, factual reporting on the homosexual issue.”
After much publicity, Twitter restores LifeSiteNews account claiming “error”
Less than one day after LifeSiteNews published its initial story about being unjustly censored by Twitter, Twitter reportedly lifted the ban arbitrarily, claiming that the page’s takedown was an “error.”
The more than 7,500 LifeSiteNews supporters who signed a petition demanding that the news site’s Twitter page be restored deserve much of the credit for this, as do the thousands of others who shared the LifeSiteNews article that shined a very bright light on Twitter’s Orwellian actions against the news outlet.
The general public needs to know what Twitter is up to, as well as have true information at their fingertips about the inherent dangers associated with homosexual activity. Greater numbers of homosexual men with STDs are now having unprotected sex, the original LifeSiteNews tweet pointed out, and as many as 60 percent of them aren’t telling their sexual partners that they’re infected, resulting in the further spread of disease.
Natural News similarly reported late last year that homosexual men with HIV are essentially spreading more anal cancer, as anal cancer rates among infected men have been scientifically shown to be 100 times higher than in HIV-negative men.
These are very serious public health risks that the likes of Twitter wants to withhold from the public in the name of “tolerance” and “political correctness.” Pointing out that homosexual men are essentially disease factories just isn’t acceptable to the liberal mob, which would sooner burn at the stake those who tell the truth about this major societal epidemic than try to protect potential victims of it by warning them about these real-life risks.
“Twitter, facts are facts and I as a gay man want to know the truth, even if it’s ‘the ugly truth,'” tweeted one homosexual man in support of LifeSiteNews, and against Twitter censorship. “Have you forgotten what happened during the first years of AIDS? Remember, ‘Silence=death’ slogan?” he added.
