May 14, 2024 | Political News

According to new documents put forward by the United States House Judiciary Committee and its Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, the government of Brazil has been issuing censorship orders to X and other US-based social media platforms.  

The report in question is titled “The Attack on Free Speech Abroad and the Biden Administration’s Silence: The Case Of Brazil.”

The second part of this report highlighted that as recently as in April, X, in addition to Rumble, were served a total of ten orders to implement censorship policies on accounts. In Rumble’s case, it was served 9 censorship orders. Both companies rejected these orders.

Didi Rankovic of the Reclaim the Net noted that accounts which were subjected to censorship protocol, included Monark (described as the “Joe Rogan” of Brazil), in addition to leading opposition figures, parliamentarians, political pundits, radio stations, and a notable gospel singer.
