Your T1 WIFI an Idaho internet provider has announced it has blocked access to Twitter and Facebook due to censorship ‘concerns’ after Big Tech declared war on Conservatives, starting with President Donald Trump.
YourT1Wifi, which services North Idaho and parts of Washington, informed its customers of their decision to fight Social Media’s purging of Conservatives after reportedly receiving thousands of complaints from subscribers.
In an email sent out on Monday, owner Bret Fink said the company had been ‘fielding calls’ over the last few days from customers calling for the social media websites to be blocked from the network.
‘We have the past couple of days been fielding calls from customers voicing the concern that they do not want these sites allowed to be displayed on their internet feed to them and that they do not want their children to go to these sites.’
The company explained that while subscribers are able to make these changes themselves, some lack ‘technical knowledge’ and it would be ‘very tiresome’ for them to service everyone individually.
‘There are too many people that have called for us to do one at a time so we will be blocking these 2 and any other website that may also be censoring whether it be through their algorithm they use for their site or any other means,’
American’s Right To Free Speech
The company did not specify how many customers had complained and confirmed the block would go into effect Wednesday.
It came after Twitter and Facebook last week announced they were permanently banning Trump from their platforms after he was accused of inciting violence at the US Capitol.
YourT1Wifi email did not explicitly reference the actions against the president but stated that it did not support companies’ decision to censor information from its users.
‘Our company does not believe a website or social networking site has the authority to censor what you see and post and hide information from you, stop you from seeing what your friends and family are posting,’
‘This is why with the amount of concerns, we have made this decision to block these two websites from being accessed from our network.’
Those who still wished to have access to the websites would have to inform the provider to be added to the ‘allowed list’, otherwise, the block would go into effect automatically.
Liberal Logic At Its Finest
A local news station KGW8 covered the story, by focusing on one customer that claimed to be ‘shocked’ her internet service provider had decided to make such a sweeping change.
Ironically, this customer wasn’t shocked about social media’s war on Conservatives, or their blatantly scrubbing their social media sites of right-wing opinions.
It’s unfortunate, that KGW8 didn’t seem too anxious to ask her how she felt about Amazon and Big Tech blackballing the social media site Parler.
I assume, based on her mental midget argument, that she just couldn’t grasp the whole ‘First Amendment’, ‘American’s right to free speech’ aspect in pushing back against Social Media’s fascism?
Her argument focused mainly on ‘Why should an internet provider block a website when people could simply just not go to Twitter and Facebook if they’re so against it?’
My response to her would be have been…Now, do Porn, and Islamic terrorist sites!
