Stefan Molyneux has been suspended from Twitter just one week after YouTube banned the Canada-based philosopher from their video-sharing platform.
In a video published following the suspension, Molyneux said “As far as I understand it, Twitter says they kicked me off for spam and platform manipulation. Specifically, operating fake accounts.”
Molyneux said on Parler he received the ban just after promoting an essay detailing what he believes about issues including the state, race, men and women, and the family.
Twitter’s suspension follows YouTube’s move last week to delete Molyneux’s channel which contained thousands of videos, attracted over 250-million views, and had close to 1-million subscribers.
Molyneux suggested the goal in suppressing his content is to “remove the middle.”
“To remove those of us who are looking for peaceful solutions, rational solutions, philosophical solutions to social differences,” he said.
“To take us out so that there is no center to society and everyone can gravitate to the extremes, wherein the tinderbox of violence can be lit in a revolutionary conflagration of brutality. I’m going to strongly urge you, my friends, to resist that temptation. Resist that temptation to go to the extremes, to go to hostility, to go to rage, to go to violence,” Molyneux added.
