The front page of the internet might be getting ready to backpage supporters of President Trump. In a podcast interview with Vox’s Kara Swisher, Reddit CEO Steve Huffman went into great detail about how to silence conservatives on the popular site.
Democrats are trying to buy their way to a presidential victory in 2020 on Facebook and Google. Priorities USA, a Democratic SuperPAC, announced that it was launching an advertising campaign that would repackage local news into Democratic propaganda, in an attempt to assist the DNC with its 2020 presidential campaign.
Democrats who have tried to gaslight conservatives about politically motivated, Big Tech censorship will have a hard time explaining this — a lawsuit by one of their own. Presidential contender and Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) is suing Google after she accused it of meddling in the 2020 election. She charged that the platform suspended her campaign’s advertising account at a critical period after the Democratic primary debate. She’s suing Google for $50 million.
No one is happy with the fine the FTC levied on Facebook. Not even the FTC. Federal Trade Commissioner Rebecca Kelly Slaughter wrote in a July 24 letter that she objected to the $5 billion fine handed to Facebook for privacy violations. “I am skeptical that its terms will have a meaningful disciplining effect on how Facebook treats data and privacy,” she wrote, arguing instead that the FTC should “fight for the right outcome in a public court of law,” against both Facebook and its CEO, Mark Zuckerberg.
Twitter will stop at nothing to block conservative content, no matter the source. Gay, black, conservative commentator Benji Irby complained that, “Twitter suspended my account indefinitely for no apparent reason on Monday, July 22nd, 2019 after posting an innocuous video reaching out to black Democrats.” He claims that the video was rocketing to popularity, “The video got 7,000 views in 8 hours before Twitter shut it and me down and now all my videos are and followers are gone.” Apparently, his success was seen as threatening to the left “I lost EVERYTHING!” he lamented. “My whole following that I've built over the past two years was through Twitter is GONE!”
The hive known as Google is quick to punish those who undermine its authority. Hours after Google engineer Greg Coppola appeared with James O’Keefe in a Project Veritas video, he was put on administrative leave by his company. In the video, Coppola said that he believed that Google News and Google’s search engine algorithms were biased.
The reckoning may be coming for Big Tech companies from the Department of Justice. The U.S. Department of Justice launched a massive antitrust investigation of Big Tech and whether they engage in anti-competitive behavior on Tuesday July 23. The Wall Street Journal described this as an incoming “threat for companies such as Facebook Inc., Google, Amazon.com Inc. and Apple Inc.” It cited the review will specifically target platforms that dominate “internet search, social media and retail services.”
Google’s iron curtain shielding its biases is beginning to crumble. In an interview with Project Veritas’ founder James O’Keefe, current Google engineer Greg Coppola cast doubt on the multiple testimonies given by Google executives to Congress, especially CEO Sundar Pichai’s December statements.
Liberal journalists want to abolish the 2nd Amendment on all platforms, not just in reality. Video games correspondent Keith Stuart of The Guardian wrote an unintentionally hilarious opinion piece for Medium about how the game industry needs less gunplay. He wrote that in a “time of enormous uncertainty, widespread gun violence, and climate crisis, maybe it’s time for a new era of mainstream games that provide an escape from conflict, rather than reveling in it.” One example of where he thinks the industry should go, was studio TRU LUV’s title “SelfCare” which was described as “a series of mini-games in which you lie in bed, cuddling your cat, consulting tarot cards or sorting laundry into colors.”
Facebook and Twitter are working together to squelch any conservative opinions about illegal aliens. Conservative writer and Breitbart contributor Warner Todd Huston wrote that he had been suspended from both social media platforms after tweeting “Illegal aliens are not immigrants. They are criminals.”
Add Germany to the list of foreign governments struggling with the lax privacy policies found in Big Tech companies. The state government of Hesse, Germany, has forbidden students by law from using Microsoft Office 365 over privacy concerns as of July 9.
Worried about your privacy online? You probably shouldn’t sell the rights to your face to a tech company. Google employees are taking to the streets of New York City and asking random people for their face data. Google employees are taking to the streets of New York City and asking random people for their face data. The search engine company is “gathering data,” probably to prepare for the release of the Pixel 4, Google’s new phone. The product will have Google’s own version of “Face ID” installed into it.
