Joseph Stalin and the Soviet Communists were known for their airbrushing. If a top official lost favor with Stalin they were eliminated and airbrushed from society as if they never existed.
Who would have ever thought this Marxist practice would come to American shores one day?
And yet here we are. In early January, we learned the tech giants are using a frightening new method to censor and control what you can see, read and discuss online. T-Mobile blocked our website links. You could not send any articles from TGP using T-mobile. The text would not show on the receiver’s end. Your friends or family would not even know that you sent them a TGP article.
Dozens of our readers sent us proof that this was happening.
The Gateway Pundit was one of the top 250 websites in the country in 2021. We had over 900 million page views in 2021. TGP continually offers breaking news and our reporting is second to none. As the mainstream media continues to shovel out their BS and lies and refuses to report the truth, The Gateway Pundit continues to grow year after year. Because of this, the American left hates us and does EVERYTHING — and we mean EVERYTHING — possible to destroy us.
One of our readers reached out to T-Mobile through chat support and was sent a link to a Reuters article discussing an FCC decision on censoring texts. The decision was actually meant to stop robotexts and spam messages, not individual texts. The customer service representative admitted that the carrier has been censoring websites via the transmission of text messages. This was a new tactic of the left. They were now eliminating conservative articles in text messages!
This is a Marxist tactic used in communist regimes – not America. I
n January, we sent a letter to Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmidt and filed a complaint. The Gateway Pundit demanded the Missouri Attorney General to investigate this matter. The letter was sent to all five of the Missouri Attorney General’s offices in January.
On Monday, February 14th, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt informed T-Mobile that an investigation has been launched in Missouri against T-Mobile following their censorship of conservative viewpoints and the violations of their “WebGuard” software.
On Friday, the Missouri Attorney General’s office got back with our attorney. Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt received a response from T-Mobile. T-Mobile ADMITTED that users sharing links of Gateway Pundit articles were BLOCKED. T-Mobile insisted this was due to a glitch in the spam filters. We do not believe that for a second.
For the record, our website was not even mentioned in the Missouri AG’s letter to T-Mobile.
T-Mobile claims that they have corrected the problem and that users should not have a problem sharing TGP links in the future.
