(Tea Party PAC) – If you are one of the few human beings alive on the planet earth who still doesn’t believe that social media tech companies like Facebook and Twitter censor conservative folks who use their platforms, you really need to research what’s been happening to right-leaning actor James Woods over the last couple of years.
This poor guy is practically a walking censorship sticker with all of the times his account has been picked on by the powers that be on Twitter. In fact, things were so bad for Woods he actually stopped using it for a long time. He just recently returned from that hiatus only to be banned again.
What happened this time?
Let’s check with BizPacReview:
After a prolonged absence on Twitter, due to the social media platform locking him out over a ridiculously innocuous tweet, Woods made a triumphant return recently to the great pleasure of his 2.2 million followers, who see the actor as a welcome voice in the political arena.
But his return didn’t last long — 6 1/2 weeks — as Woods has once again been locked out by Twitter.
The reason behind this latest heavy-handed move being no better than the original reason from the social media platform run by co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey.
Woods has reportedly been shut down for sharing a photograph of a drunken, naked Democrat that was already widespread on the platform.
For those not in the know, Democrat Andrew Gillum, former mayor of Tallahassee, Florida and the 2018 gubernatorial candidate in the state, was found in a South Beach hotel with a male escort who might have been overdosing on crystal meth. According to the police report, Gillum himselfd was so drunk that he couldn’t communicate with authorities on the scene.
Gillum is married with three children, which makes the suggestion that he had sexual relations with the escort all the more egregious. Gillum apologized for his actions and entered rehab, completely stepping away from public life.
Woods’ girlfriend, Sara Miller, reported to folks on Twitter about his being locked out of his account.
“So @RealJamesWoods has been locked out of his account again for sharing ‘intimate media’ of a drunk, naked, puking politician,” she tweeted. “His response: ‘Twitter is, of course, protecting Andrew Gillum because no one should ever know how vile these Democrat scum truly are.’ #FreeJamesWoods.”

As seen in the included screenshot, Twitter’s reasoning states: “Violating our rules against posting or sharing privately produced/distributed intimate media of someone without their consent.”
This coming from a platform where graphic, uncensored pornography can be pulled up at any given time.
Woods was very vocal about the censoring that takes place on Twitter when he was locked out before, and even intimated that he may quit the social media platform.
The real question we need to ask ourselves is whether or not Woods would’ve been booted from the social media platform had he been an outspoken liberal activist? The answer is likely a “no.” After all, as long as you agree with everyone else and don’t dare have an opinion of your own, submitting yourself fully to the borg, you may have access to the masses of the people.
Apparently, that’s the kind of world we live in now.
