The fact is that social media censorship overwhelmingly targets the left, not the right. Last year, Google CEO Sundar Pichai admitted that the company censors the World Socialist Web Site, and the WSWS remains buried in search results for “socialism,” “socialist,” “Trotskyism,” and “class struggle,” despite being universally recognized as the most comprehensive authority on these issues.
For months, Facebook blocked the sharing of a WSWS article opposing the conspiracy theory that COVID-19 was a Chinese-made bioweapon, and anyone who attempted to share the article was either warned or suspended. Leading members of the WorldSocialist Web Site editorial board—including US managing editor Niles Niemuth—have been suspended from Facebook entirely without cause.
Greenwald and his co-thinkers, while condemning Facebook’s supposed violation of Trump’s free speech, have made no mention of the ongoing censorship of the World Socialist Web Site. In fact, in November, Chris Hedges bluntly refused, in response to an appeal by WSWS international editorial board Chairman David North, to make a statement opposing the suspension of the Twitter account of the International Youth and Students for Social Equality (IYSSE), claiming he was too busy.
Too busy for a Tweet?! Glenn’s a lost cause, as far as I’m concerned (So is Jimmy).

However, the MEK’s history of violence is not confined to aggression against Iranian citizens. The group subscribed to a fierce anti-American ideology in the 1970s and hit several American targets inside Iran in a string of bombings that hit the US information office, Pepsi Cola, PanAm and General Motors.
A State Department inquiry in 1992 found the MEK guilty of killing six American citizens, including three military officers and three men hired by Rockwell International, a manufacturing company that ceased its operations in 2001.
US politicians that support these terrorists should be tried for treason!

Do not miss the Mujahidin-e Khalq terrorist organization, abbreviated as MEK, which is known for its killings and bombings. This terrorist organization strongly opposes US-Iran diplomacy. In March 2021, a number of US Senators, including Senator Bob Menendez, the strong chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, attended a virtual event hosted by the MEK-backed Iranian American Community Organization (OIAC) calling for continued US sanctions on Iran.Iran Nuclear Deal JCPOA & Attempts To Sabotage America’s Return Using MEK
