13 Feb 2023 Scott Shepard Laughs at Twitter Censor Yoel Roth Calling Himself “Nonpartisan”
On February 8, the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability conducted a hearing entitled “Protecting Speech from Government Interference and Social Media Bias, Part 1: Twitter’s Role in Suppressing the Biden Laptop Story.”
“In a sense it was hilarious,” Scott laughed wryly regarding the testimony of Yoel Roth, Twitter’s former global head of trust & safety.
Yoel Roth claiming that he’s nonpartisan is one of the most astonishing statements. I don’t know if he was under oath, but he was under oath, his right hand should have burned off.
I mean, he has made it very very clear that during his time at Twitter, as the head of their censorship department, he was on a mission to downplay and to eliminate what he considered “dangerous speech” — not false, not inaccurate, not hate speech….
Dangerous speech just meant speech about things, or taking positions, that Yoel Roth personally disagreed with.
