Project Veritas and founder James O’Keefe can no longer even be mentioned on Instagram following the FBI’s raid on his home and organization headquarters earlier this month.
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.”
Getting the full Alex Jones treatment soon enough.
We live in a world where the truth is “false content”. https://t.co/okr70b6Pnz

Veritas has recently released a series of damning videos of government officials and pharmaceutical executives admitting in their own words that they covered up data about vaccine side effects and that the vaccines were not as effective as natural immunity.
This comes just days after the FBI raided O’Keefe’s private residence and his organization’s headquarters over charges they had stolen the diary of Joe Biden’s daughter Ashley Biden.

Banning individuals from social media has become commonplace for Big Tech, but banning mentions altogether is another level of censorship.
Facebook and Instagram first banned any mentions of Alex Jones in 2019, unless is was something bad or disparaging about him or Infowars.
