(Big League Politics) – The unprecedented and universal bans imposed on President Donald Trump from Big Tech monopolies may become permanent, according to new reporting from the New York Times.
New York Times tech reporter Kevin Roose indicated that only a few people at the monopoly platforms expect the President’s unprecedented ban from social media to remain temporary, suggesting the bans will be in fact permanent.

The racuous protest outside of the US Capitol may stand to become a fait accompli for Big Tech censorship advocates, providing a convenient means to enact a new regime of even stricter and more Orwellian censorship.
Since Roose’s report, Trump has since reappeared on Twitter, uploading a video in which he condemned violence and definitively conceded the election to Joe Biden. Facebook still has Trump’s page banned from posting, and YouTube enacted censorship after Facebook did.
Left-wing employees at Big Tech platforms have increasingly agitated in belligerent terms for the Masters of the Universe to ban Trump supporters, nationalists, and Republicans, with leadership at Facebook occasionally swatting down reactionary censorship demands.
Michelle Obama demanded that Big Tech oligarchs permanently ban Trump from their platforms in a Wednesday statement.
President Trump may be compelled to resort to Parler if the Big Tech platforms institute a permanent ban.
