While Elon Musk, the self-proclaimed “free speech absolutist,” had his offer for a social media giant accepted, another huge digital juggernaut was removing content from an account they didn’t like. According to the same factors that prompted Musk’s Twitter pursuits, Instagram has banned yet another prominent conservative figure.
Tito Ortiz’s Instagram account was suspended by Mark Zuckerberg’s liberal platform. Ortiz was not even given an explanation for his suspension. The account of the former UFC world title fighter has been suspended indefinitely. The majority of Ortiz’s posts on his Instagram account were in support of safeguarding our children.
He slammed the liberal left’s attempt to indoctrinate children with their odd transgender philosophy, which he found absurd. By incorporating critical race theory into the classroom, Ortiz slammed those who aim to instill hatred in children’s hearts and minds. The UFC fighter, who is a member of the Hall of Fame, has removed his children from the California education system.
Like many parents, he chose to home school his kids to avoid the indoctrination agenda of the left. Ortiz has since moved his children to Florida, where Republican Governor Ron DeSantis is sticking up for parents’ rights.
Despite posts showing his sincere passion for wanting to help children, Instagram periodically warned Ortiz against misinformation. But nothing he ever said was misinformation. His views were his own. All are popular and supported by millions of parents all over the country.
However, these ideas differ from the radical objectives of people like Mark Zuckerberg. The only thing Ortiz would be guilty of is being forthright and honest. These cancel-culture lunatics cannot stand anything or anyone speaking out against them.
They abhor the truth. When the truth exposes their corrupt ambitions, they shut it down. That’s what angered Elon Musk so much about Twitter. Soon, at least one platform will be truly open to free speech.
But in the meantime, the Mark Zuckerbergs’ of the world will try to silence those who disagree with them. It is wrong. This type of blatant censorship goes against the core American values. The amendment protecting freedom of speech in our nation is the first for a reason.
It is the most important of all. After his account was deleted with no warning, Ortiz explained why he thinks this type of injustice happens. Ortiz said, “We are all well aware that the truth is not permissible on Instagram or Facebook.”
He went on to point out how obviously abusive accounts are allowed to operate freely. “I am disgusted with this platform when it allows child pornography, pedophilia, terrorists, and gang members,” he continued.
The proud conservative also noted that his wife lost her account in 2020 for similar reasons. Ortiz insists that dissenting viewpoints are shadowbanned or outright canceled. Like many conservatives, Ortiz exclaimed, “The censorship must stop!”
When crooked liberals like Mark Zuckerberg ban people like Ortiz, no one should be surprised. It’s wrong, but it’s how these radicals manipulate the public narrative. Thankfully, there’s a new sheriff in town at one of these “de facto public town squares.”
There are millions of people just like Tito Ortiz. They have had their voices silenced by the radical left. But there’s fresh hope on the horizon. Conservative views are just as important as those of the radical left. Soon everyone will be heard equally. A little “Twitter bird” told us so.
