Neither "can no longer even be mentioned on Instagram following the FBI’s raid on his home and organization headquarters earlier this month," Infowars is reporting.
"When one tries to tag the whistleblower organization or O’Keefe on the platform, a notification pops up stating they can’t be mentioned because they have 'repeatedly posted content that goes against our Community Guidelines on false content about COVID-19 or vaccines,'" the news outlet continued.
Social media users took to other platforms to help spread the word.
If past is prologue, then it won't take long for the other major social media platforms to do the same thing: Censor Project Veritas for doing the job the mainstream media is supposed to be doing.
The Instagram action comes on the heels of O'Keefe and two Project Veritas associates being rousted by the Justice Department's Gestapo, also known as the FBI, in connection with an allegedly "stolen" diary belonging to President Joe Biden's daughter, Ashley Biden. Normally, of course, the FBI would not get involved in the theft of a book, but since it's a daughter of the regime and the diary reportedly contains some salacious and very creepy (and inappropriate) behavior on the part of daddy, then you can only guess why this is occurring.
O'Keefe put out a video statement last week describing what is happening while singling out the New York Times for being 'lucky' enough to have obtained details about the raids within an hour of them taking place (leaks, anyone?).
"...[W]hile the Department of Justice requested us to not disclose the existence of the subpoena, something very unusual happened. Within an hour of one of our reporters’ homes being secretly raided by the FBI, The New York Times, who we are currently suing for defamation, contacted the Project Veritas reporter for comment. We do not know how The New York Times was aware of the execution of a search warrant at our reporter’s home, or the subject matter of the search warrant, as a Grand Jury investigation is secret," O'Keefe said.
"The FBI took materials of current, and former, Veritas journalists despite the fact that our legal team previously contacted the Department of Justice and voluntarily conveyed unassailable facts that demonstrate Project Veritas’ lack of involvement in criminal activity and/or criminal intent," he continued.
"Like any reporter, we regularly deal with the receipt of source information and take steps to verify its authenticity, legality, and newsworthiness. Our efforts were the stuff of responsible, ethical journalism and we are in no doubt that Project Veritas acted properly at each and every step," he said, adding: "However, it appears journalism itself may now be on trial."
He noted further:
Late last year, we were approached by tipsters claiming they had a copy of Ashley Biden’s diary. We had never met or heard of the tipsters. The tipsters indicated that the diary had been abandoned in a room in which Ms. Biden stayed at the time, and in which the tipsters stayed in temporarily after Ms. Biden departed the room. The tipsters indicated that the diary included explosive allegations against then-candidate, Joe Biden. The tipsters indicated that they were negotiating with a different media outlet for the payment of monies for the diary. The tipsters were represented by attorneys who handled the negotiations with Project Veritas.
We investigated the claims provided to us, as journalists do. We took steps to corroborate the authenticity of the diary. At the end of the day, we made the ethical decision that because, in part, we could not determine if the diary was real, if the diary in fact belonged to Ashley Biden, or if the contents of the diary occurred, we could not publish the diary and any part thereof. We attempted to return the diary to an attorney representing Ms. Biden, but that attorney refused to authenticate it. Project Veritas gave the diary to law enforcement to ensure it could be returned to its rightful owner. We never published it.
"Now, Ms. Biden’s Father’s Department of Justice, specifically the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, appears to be investigating the situation, claiming the diary was stolen," O'Keefe noted further.
"We don’t know if it was, but it begs the question: In what world is the alleged theft of a diary investigated by the President’s FBI and his Department of Justice? A diary! This federal investigation smacks of politics."
Yes, it does. It also smacks of abject corruption, which pretty much sums up every Democratic regime in the modern era.
