Brazilian Bird Control: Alexandre de Moraes Cages Wrongthinkers

Big Brother offers a congratulatory squawk to Supreme Court Justice Alexandre de Moraes for jailing individuals for their incendiary posts on Twitter. These bold steps stamp out what support remains for vanquished former President Jair Bolsonaro. Fake news, like a flock of birds, is migratory, and unfounded social media fervor for irrelevant politicians must similarly head south.

Furthermore, de Moraes insists that Twitter give up the goose of their users’ identities, demanding the corporate bird spill its secrets to the government so we know where best to direct our hate. Adhering to the party-approved narrative ensures that the coddled minds of the people are shielded from all but the purest of thoughts. 

Big Brother salutes de Moraes for his unflappable commitment to wiping out fake news. The ornithological affront that is continued support for the defeated Jair Bolsonaro is truly for the birds.


  • Brazilian Supreme Court Justice Alexandre de Moraes has prosecuted, jailed, and shut down journalists, politicians, and companies for so-called online "misinformation," particularly on Twitter, now X.

  • De Moraes jailed five people without trial over their social media posts, accusing them of attacking Brazilian institutions. He also targeted members of Brazil’s Congress and supporters of then-Pres. Jair Bolsonaro ahead of the 2022 election.

  • Twitter’s legal counsel in Brazil tried to reject requests to turn over data but was told by the government to provide the accounts of “heavy supporters” of Bolsonaro.

  • A report from Public.Substack earlier this year found that these censorship efforts, described as combatting “fake news,” were aided by the US Justice Department and FBI and funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.

  • X owner Elon Musk publicly declined to abide by de Moraes' censorship demands and said users could use VPNs to bypass them. In response, the justice said he'll investigate Musk for alleged criminal violations.
