Rising conservative star to Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Missouri) scorched social media as a waste of time as well as an “addictive drug.” Hawley blasted social media as a blight on American society in a May 22 opinion piece for USA Today. He accused Big Tech companies of creating a business model based on addiction, saying that they develop “new schemes to hijack their users’ neural circuitry.”
Twitter is built with an apocalyptic attitude toward conservatives and conservative media. The company’s co-founder Ev Williams told CNN Business in a May 22 interview that he believed that Twitter was not destructive towards the political landscape in the U.S.
Google prides itself on creating a “safe,” politically “nonpartisan” and “inclusive” workplace… for everybody but conservatives, according to one Google engineer. Conservative Google software engineer Mike Wacker published a scathing May 21 tell-all on Medium describing the liberal insanity he encounters on a daily basis. “If left unchecked,” he wrote, “these outrage mobs will hunt down any conservative, any Christian, and any independent free thinker at Google who does not bow down to their agenda.”
While Democrats ironically call for Facebook to be broken up, one would never know from looking at their campaign receipts. In the course of 22 days, Democrats running for president have outspent Trump on social media ads by 5-to-1.
Both The New York Times and Washington Post blasted the free speech position taken by President Donald Trump last week. World leaders, led by New Zealand, united around the Christchurch Call to demand stronger internet censorship. This followed the deadly Christchurch terror attack that killed 51 Muslims. President Trump not only refused to sign on, but established a censorship reporting hotline.
The academic elite behind the prevalent philosophy in tech censorship is ready to blame the GOP for pretty much everything. A study produced by three Iowa State University and University of Kansas professors has studied the link between political rhetoric and white nationalist hate crimes.
Having it your way at Burger King might well include urging violence against conservatives, according to critics of the company. The fast food company’s UK Twitter account has been tied to attacks on conservative political figures. There has been a recent epidemic of conservative British politicians being repeatedly doused by protestors’ milkshakes.
Facebook’s COO claims that breaking up the company will put America at a disadvantage to China. During a May 17 CNBC interview with Julia Boorstin, Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg tried to dodge government regulation by appealing to American interests.
The Women’s March has a new agenda item: to delete all signs of President Donald Trump from social media. On May 20, the left-wing activist organization prepared 300,000 signatures as a petition to ban Trump, to be delivered at Twitter headquarters in San Francisco and New York City.
Not only is white supremacy banned on Facebook, but any sort of discussion about it from the right is also banned. Especially if you criticize the liberal narrative. Conservative commentator Candace Owens was recently handed a seven-day suspension from Facebook for a post that “violated Community Standards.” After a few hours, the account was restored.
The man who created some of most famous Trump memes is back on Twitter after a bogus suspension. The account that goes by @CarpeDonktum tweeted that while he was restored as of May 10, his account’s restoration is “is not the fairy tale ending as we had hoped.” He continued by explaining, “For 8 days I worked within the @Twitter appeal system. IT FAILED CATASTROPHICALLY.” He then added how Twitter “admits I broke no rules, but that decision was OVERRULED by SOMEONE at the top.”
The White House has announced a new system that gives Americans the power to call out foul play by tech companies. As of May 15 it read, “SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS should advance FREEDOM OF SPEECH.” “Too many Americans have seen their accounts suspended, banned, or fraudulently reported for unclear ‘violations’ of user policies,” it continued before delivering a bipartisan message that freedom of speech is a right held by all Americans. “No matter your views, if you suspect political bias caused such an action to be taken against you, share your story with President Trump.”
