Roger Stone claims he’s being ‘censored’ on Trump’s Truth Social channel

Republican veteran and longtime ally of Donald Trump, Roger Stone, announced that he was being “censored” on the former president’s social networking site Truth Social.

The latest statement from Stone comes as the platform’s traffic dwindles, with conservatives scattered among other right-wing Twitter alternatives, including Truth, Gab and Gettr.

On Saturday night, Stone took to Truth Social – which considers itself a free speech haven – to post about “radical Islam,” including an image of an old Trump campaign button, and the comment, “Trump also warned once again of the growing terrorist threat posed by radical Islam infiltrating the predicted 9/11 attacks.

Truth Social, which has artificial intelligence moderators working in the background, later applied a “sensitive content” warning, adding that Stone’s post “may not be appropriate for all audiences”. “.

“Why is this content censored on TruthSocial?” Stone wrote in a follow-up post featuring the same Trump campaign button. Notably, the second post was not slapped with warning content.

Neither Stone nor Truth Social responded to The Daily Beast’s request for comment on Sunday morning.

Stone’s assertion of being “censored” comes after other users of Truth-loving MAGA announced that they had been muted on the platform, which launched in late February. “So tonight I was #censored on #TruthSocial,” one user wrote on Saturday night.

The Daily Beast’s media newsletter, Material Source for the first time reported that the ghost town of a website has been hit by a bot, which includes “verified” accounts carrying big names like the NFL, TMZ and NASCAR Not affiliated with iconic brands.

This isn’t the first time Stone has fouled right-wing alternate platforms. In August 2021, he was temporarily booted from Jason Miller’s Gettr, which Stone was caused by his long feud with Steve Bannon, a friend in Miller’s Gettr operation.

Miller told Salon at the time: “Many fake Roger Stone accounts were suspended after users complained, but his real Gettr account was also accidentally suspended. “His exact account is now active and all impersonation accounts have been removed.” Roger Stone claims he’s being ‘censored’ on Trump’s Truth Social channel
