GETTR Repeatedly Bans America First Streamer for No Reason, Refuses to Explain

Share

America First streamer Nick Fuentes has been repeatedly banned from GETTR, the platform ran by former Trump advisor Jason Miller, for seemingly no reason.

Fuentes, the host of the popular nightly show “America First,” was initially banned from GETTR, a supposed free speech alternative to Twitter, at the end of last month.

Earlier this week, Elijah Schaffer of The Blaze contacted GETTR, who Schaffer says told him Fuentes violated their terms of service, did not note specific violations or what posts contained them.

“My inquiry was extremely professional and predicated on the basis that the public deserves the right to know GETTR’s threshold for banning users, largely in part due to their users joining to avoid the very censorship practices they seem to be implementing,” Schaffer added, saying that the obtuse nature of Fuentes’s banning made him “suspicious” of the platform.

Fuentes attempted to rejoin the platform multiple times on Tuesday evening, but was banned shortly after each time, even as viewers watched on his live stream.

“If I go on there, and they ban me for being me, well what is that? It’s arbitrary, it’s discretionary, and when they ban groyper, that takes it to a different level,” Fuentes said on his stream, referring to previous reports from the Daily Beast and others that GETTR had banned the term “groyper” from their platform, a name used to describe supporters of Fuentes.

The ban would seem to stand in direct contrast to GETTR’s supposed free speech mentality.

Should GETTR restore Fuentes's account?

In October last year, Miller was asked on Twitter if he would ever cancel anyone “for their political opinions.” Miller proudly responded in the negative, claiming that “cancel culture doesn’t happen at #GETTR!”

Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers, a well known supporter of the America First agenda, slammed GETTR for the ban, saying that they would be “no better than Twitter” if they refused to restore his account.

“Free speech is free speech,” Rogers continued, arguing that if conservatives who are upset about Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene’s recent Twitter ban, but not Fuentes’s GETTR ban, “then we have a problem.”
