(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- The censorship of conservatives continues, with video social media network TikTok reportedly censoring Minnesota Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Jensen.
Jensen posted on Twitter claiming that he was banned on TikTok for criticizing a story from “60 Minutes” about the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine in the state of Florida.
“After 286,000 followers 1.2 Million likes 100,000+ views per day I’ve been Banned by @tiktok_us. Cancelled,” he said.

“My account had not violated community guidelines,” he insisted, before saying that the platform took down two videos in which he criticized 60 Minutes and its reporting on the hugely successful rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine by Republican Governor Ron DeSantis.
This week, 60 Minutes – which was once the most respected investigative news show in the country – argued that Republican Governor Ron DeSantis gave preferential treatment to a grocery chain known as “Publix” in a “pay for play” scheme. The grocery chain donated $100,000 to the DeSantis reelection campaign.
But the report completely missed the mark, forgetting that it is not only extremely common for big businesses to donate to political campaigns, but that the business has also donated to Democrat candidates in the past.
DeSantis revealed that the state partnered with Publix for the vaccine rollout to dramatically increase the speed at which the vaccine was administered, with other pharmacies in the state not being able to keep up with the pace that the state needed.
“I know corporate media thinks that they can just run people over,” DeSantis said in response to questions about the made-up controversy. “You ain’t running over this governor. I’m punching back and I’m going to continue to do it until these smear merchants are held accountable.”
And that’s precisely what Scott Jensen was exposing in his TikTok videos.
“It’s really pretty confounding, but it sure feels like being canceled. I wanted to reach out to Millennials during my campaign for the governorship of Minnesota,” Jensen revealed. “Everything that we had on TikTok had been on some other platform. So, I’m absolutely confused, but it is what it is, it’s a changing world.”
A TikTok representative confirmed that the Republican candidate was removed from the platform, but an explanation for the decision was not offered.
