The Right always seemed to be of the belief that, should they have their own social media platforms, they would never again suffer the woes of bans and “silencing.” But, wouldn’t you know, it seems as though that’s not how it’s shaping up.
Recently, Donald Trump’s former spokesperson, Jason Miller, in connection with Steve Bannon, concocted a social media platform dubbed GETTR that was supposed to be a “safe space” for the right-wing nutcases. However, it seems as though there’s already infighting, hurt feelings, and perceived slights among some of the notable Conservative names on the new social media platform.
Apparently, former Trump advisor Roger Stone was banned.
Stone took to the social media site Gab to air out his grievances and outline his complaints against GETTR.

“[I]f you were under the illusion that the new social media website GETTR set up by Mueller informant Steve Bannon and his criminal confederate Jason Miller does not engage in censorship perhaps you can explain why they just suspended my account,” Stone penned. “Bannon is a criminal whose indictment for stealing money will be renewed shortly in New York State. I hear the New York state prisons are particularly rough. Once Bannon is in prison Miller won’t last week on the street.”
The former Trump advisor went on to later add, “Steve Bannon Buttboi Jason Miller shall sleep with the fishes, [f]iguratively speaking of course.”
To make matters worse for the burgeoning Right-wing platform, Gab promoted Stone’s complaints about GETTR in a tweet.
“Did Gettr’s Big Tech-like censorship AI ban Roger Stone for ‘hate speech,’ which they do not allow in their Big Tech-like Terms of Service, while claiming to be a ‘free speech’ platform?” Gab questioned.

Eventually, GETTR responded and attributed Stone’s ban to nothing more than a mistake, ultimately returning the former Trump advisor’s account.
“Multiple fake Roger Stone accounts were suspended following user complaints, but his real GETTR account was inadvertently suspended too. His correct account is currently active and the imposter accounts have all been removed,” the company stated.
