(FreedomBeacon.com)- Social media giant Twitter appears to be pushing a brand new purge of non-leftists, with conservative radio host Wayne Allyn Root becoming one of the latest to receive the boot. It follows the permanent suspension of conservative news website The Gateway Pundit.
Root told Fox News about his suspension, saying, “I am in shock.”
“It appears to be a permanent ban, although I don’t knock,” he added.
Root described how Twitter banned him without warning, failing to send any communication confirming that he had been suspended or banned. He said that when he tried to tweet earlier in the week, he wasn’t able to.
“But unlike a previous suspension,” he added,” my followers said 0.”
Twitter appears to have suspended Root’s ability to make posts and removed all of his followers.
Heading to his old handle, @RealWayneRoot, presents an empty page with the message “Account suspended” and “Twitter suspends accounts which violate the Twitter rules.” But the page does not explain what rules Root is meant to have broken.
Root also told Fox News that last time he was suspended by the platform it was because he questioned lockdown policies and the U.S. government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, explaining how he was given a seven-day suspension for pushing “misleading medical advice.”
“We made Jack Dorsey one of the richest men on earth. He got an army of worker bees to spend thousands of hours for free making him rich. And what’s my reward?” he asked. “No more free speech. In America. My opinions are banned. My opinions are forbidden.”
The Gateway Pundit’s permanent suspension came after the outlet released new CCTV footage obtained from the Detroit TCF Center where the presidential election ballots were being counted. The video appeared to show a truck arriving at the venue after the deadline for ballot delivery, which fit the timeline given by multiple witnesses who said in sworn testimony that illegal ballots were delivered after the deadline.
After publishing the video, The Gateway Pundit’s editor-in-chief Jim Hoft was permanently suspended from the platform.
Still no word from Twitter on why Root was suspended…
