In the latest attack by big tech toward those who don’t gleefully recite the predetermined narrative, Facebook-owned Instagram has banned all direct mentioning of Project Veritas and its founder, James O’Keefe.
The rationale for said platform erasure is because the social media company asserts that O’Keefe and Project Veritas have “repeatedly” shared content on the platform that presents “false content about COVID-19”.
Getting the full Alex Jones treatment soon enough.
We live in a world where the truth is “false content”. https://t.co/okr70b6Pnz

As of November 13th, an attempt to either perform a direct mention of either Project Veritas or O’Keefe will conjure a notification on Instagram where users are informed that the two aforementioned accounts cannot be cited in posts on the platform.
“project_veritas can’t be @mentioned because it has repeatedly posted content that goes against our Community Guidelines on false content about COVID-19 or vaccines.”
This move by the Facebook-owned platform is clearly in response to the series of videos released by Project Veritas over the past several weeks, where the likes of government officials and pharmaceutical executives were caught on video discussing adverse effects from the jab and other details that shed an unsavory light around big pharma and the push for everyone to get the shot.
The timing of the move by Instagram also just so happens to come days after O’Keefe’s home was raided by the FBI – as well as his employees, current and former – over allegations that Project Veritas had played an instrumental role in the alleged theft of Ashley Biden’s diary in 2020.
Ironically, Project Veritas, who had the Biden diary presented to them last year by an anonymous source, didn’t even publish the contents of it. As we noted in a previous report here at Red Voice Media regarding the Project Veritas/FBI debacle, the diary was published in its entirety by the National File last October.
Instagram’s decision to ban any mentions of O’Keefe or Project Veritas is reminiscent of the practice that started the big tech censorship movement back in 2019, when Facebook and Instagram banned Alex Jones, Infowars, Milo Yiannopoulos, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, and Paul Nehlen under allegations that said individuals and news source were “dangerous individuals and organizations.”
Alex Jones and Infowars were among the hardest hit in said 2019 effort, as they were also banned from Twitter, YouTube, and Apple.
