Mexican president compares suspension of Trump’s Facebook account to ‘Inquisition’
The definitive suspension of Donald Trump from most mainstream social networks has surprised many. The tech oligarchs are now more powerful than any nation state or president. A handful of billionaires determine what we can hear, what we can speak, what is true and what is false. The Mexican president at least, has noticed this ominous development.

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, nicknamed “AMLO”, on Friday, January 8, spoke at length about the threats of suspension weighing on Donald Trump. The Mexican leader, a leftist with little sympathy towards his American counterpart, has however spotted the real threat.
At the time of his press conference, Twitter had not yet announced the final ban of the Republican president from its platform. In the statements that followed, AMLO therefore only refered to the sole suspension “of at least two weeks” decided by Facebook on the day after the events at the Capitol. “It is a bad omen,” the Mexican president said, according to Bloomberg. “It is as if a censorship tribunal was created, like the Holy Inquisition, for the management of public opinion,” he added.
Last Thursday, January 7, the founder and CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, had indeed declared that the social network would extend the ban on Donald Trump’s publications for at least two weeks, until Joe Biden takes over the business of running the US plutocracy scheduled for January 20. The Mexican president deemed Zuckerberg’s statement “arrogant”.
“We cannot allow a company that owns Facebook or Twitter to decide who it can and who it cannot give the opportunity to communicate!” thundered AMLO. “[Mark Zuckerberg] talks about his terms of service,” he continued. “But what about freedom and the right to information? What is the role of legal and legitimately constituted authorities?”
Evidently the phrase “protecting democracy” used by social media giants means: We need more censorship! The fears and emotions in the population triggered by the breaching of the Capitol are mercilessly and deliberately exploited to enforce more authoritarian measures. And it is now obvious who is really in power in the United States.
A new “war on terror” has indeed broken out, according to the journalist Glen Greenwald, who in 2013, together with Edward Snowden, uncovered mass surveillance by the NSA. If Donald Trump leaves office, Greenwald told Fox News that, thanks to its data sovereignty, Silicon Valley and the executive arm of the Biden government would intensify the fight against “white supremacists” which essentially means all whites, not only Trump supporters.
