Few days ago, Gab subscribers got an email diatribe from CEO Andrew Torba claiming that his social network was targeted by PSYOP campaign.
„Over the past several weeks I have been openly warning the Gab community to be on the lookout for fedposters and threats or encouragement of violence on Gab. This PSYOP campaign started back in early December with newly created accounts popping up out of nowhere and making threats of violence. We have zero tolerance for this behavior and it is absolutely not free speech. This has always been our policy. We have thousands of volunteers, customers, and longtime community members who helped us stomp out this PSYOP campaign over the past several weeks and expose it. After this week, it’s clear why this PSYOP was started: to take down alt-tech platforms and frame them for the January 6th protests that ended with the police killing an unarmed woman“, wrote Torba in an e-mail, and continued by saying that right after riots at the Capitol, Gab was targeted by the media.
„Almost instantly after police allowed protestors (fact-chekers found no evidence of this) into the Capitol the New York Times started a baseless narrative that this protest was organized on alt-tech sites, and in particular on Gab, without offering any proof, screenshots, usernames, or evidence to back these baseless claims“, wrote Torba.
He finished with a video he sent to Gab subscribers in which he, as he says, highlights how this all played out and how the CIA Mockingbird Media complex operates.
