Big Tech Using Censorship to Tip Elections

We’ve reached a crisis point in America when the president of the United States — the leader of the free world — is being censored by social media networks during a presidential election and the pivotal days that have followed.

This is a chilling, if not downright frightening, level of censorship we’ve never seen before in the history of America.

It’s also clear evidence of election interference as Joe Biden was not censored by Facebook or Twitter — only Trump.

On Wednesday, Forbes reported, “Of Trump’s 22 posts on Facebook and Twitter, not including retweets or videos, 11 have been labeled by the social media giants. … Twitter has hidden posts from view and warned ‘some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process,’ and restricted the ability to like or retweet.”

But again, the social networks did not censor or label a single tweet or post from Joe Biden, Trump’s political opponent.

If that’s not political bias and meddling in a major election, then what is?

The far-left “speech police” at Twitter blocked the president from speaking to American citizens at a critical time in our country when voters want to know his thoughts and get important updates on the election. This impacts our lives.

Yet, the more than 100 million people who follow the president on Twitter and Facebook — and the media who cover the president and the election — were either warned about or restricted from accessing at least half of the president’s posts.

So, not only are the Twitter tyrants and Facebook oligarchs restricting the president from communicating with the American people but also they are controlling the press by blocking journalists from accessing his social media posts. The media can’t report on things we don’t see, hence Big Tech censorship is impeding journalists from doing their jobs.

This is something we see in places like Communist China, where the free flow of information is restricted and only state-run media is permitted.

The stark reality is that the CEOs of Twitter and Facebook, Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg, two unelected left-wing billionaires, and their rabid “hate Trump” employees, are exercising similar censorship on American soil. A nation where our beloved veterans have lost life and limb on the battlefield protecting the very freedoms these social networks are taking away from us in real time — without penalty.

How is this death knell to democracy — the silencing of speech and a free press — tolerated by Congress whose primary job it is to uphold and protect the Constitution? Have they forgotten the First Amendment?

Or what about Twitter’s board of directors? Are they complicit in the rampant political censorship and de facto election interference? This warrants an investigation by the Department of Justice.

Or perhaps more importantly, why haven’t millions of conservatives boycotted the social network and protested more effectively? That would surely effect change.

On Thursday, I attempted to share a Fox News video that was posted on Twitter by GOP Spokeswoman Liz Harrington. The video was a press conference taking place in Arizona where evidence of possible voter fraud was being reported by former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt, members of the Trump campaign and a local voter who spoke out about her experience with alleged mail-in ballot fraud. Twitter swiftly censored my tweet. It also slapped a warning label on Harrington’s tweet. “This is FRAUD,” she tweeted. “Democrats in Clark Country disenfranchised elderly voters with the mail-in-ballot schemes. The TRUTH will set us free!”

Twitter also censored Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, a two-time Emmy winner and highly respected anchor, who tweeted on Thursday:

“4am dump/Wisconsin 65,000 votes 100% for Biden

“4am dump/Michigan 138,499 votes 100% for Biden

“AZ poll workers forcing voters to use sharpies thereby invalidated ballots

“Trump leading in GA, NC, PA, WI, MI & they stop counting before the vote fairy visits overnight.”

The overlords at Twitter slapped a warning label on her tweet disputing its veracity and claiming it was “misleading.” They also censored another one of her tweets this week at the height of an election when the American people look to the media to report on such things.

Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch was also censored this week, as was Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich and many other prominent conservatives.

But again, the same is not the case with the Biden camp, whose speech Twitter and Facebook ferociously protect. To date, none of Joe Biden’s tweets and/or posts have been removed or designated with a “warning label.” Same with his running mate, Kamala Harris, and large swaths of left-leaning anchors such as CNN’s Jake Tapper.

Stunning political bias wouldn’t you say?

Bottom line: Congress must act immediately to fix this spiraling crisis. Our way of life — and democracy — hinges on it.

I am so depressed about what’s happening to our AMERICA, I fear for our children’s future, their forced indoctrination in the schools. I fear for our American rights, the disrespectful treatment of our law officers.
We definitely must be fighting the battle between GOOD & EVIL……WE MUST PRAY for Divine Intervention, all things are possible in the name of our savior Jesus.

I closed my FaceBook and Twitter accounts back in the summer as I found the accounts were no longer of interest to me.

Just read an article that the Dominion Voting System is tied to Nancy Pisslosi… her long time chief of staff is an executive of Dominion and Feinsteins husband, Richard Bloom is a significant shareholder of Dominion. Spread this information far and wide.

Democrats have no sense of integrity! They are ALL such liars, , cheaters and thieves that it is all they know. These kinds of people should not be allowed to hold top government positions where they can put into law things that are harmful to our nation or the American people. I firmly believe they should let our Constitution alone

Pelosi is at the top of my list of suspects behind this fraud infested election. She made it public that she would do ANYTHING TO SEE THAT TRUMP DID NOT WIN A SECOND TERM. She knows enough to cover her trail,so doubt it could be proved. She is a vicious woman. She is a disgrace to her Country, the American People she is supposed to represent, and herself.

The idiots that are supporting this election scam are going to wake up when The Kamel is in charge. Soros should have been eliminated long ago. This is a much deeper state than people know.
The layers of corruption it takes to take down Flynn is huge but to steal a national election with no regard to who knows……
That is scary, I have grandchildren and fear for their future

Of course the big tech orgs did everything to promote one side only. Oligarchical business/organizations always support the hand that “feeds” them and allows them to gain more wealth and power. Just as the Copper Kings of Montana, Standard Oil, Carnegie Steel, Rockefeller bankers (monopolies one and all) did back in the late 1800’s/early 1900s, and more recently the 2008 banker gangsters, gave millions more to the certain candidates (esp for pres). In return for this political support, monopolists now “own” these candidates, therefore the 1% richy-riches get their way. Money talks! Not a one of the banker gangsters went to jail after 2008, even though they bankrupted our nation and cost lots of people their homes and livelihoods. Its no different now in 2020. All you got to do is follow the money; but most US citizens are sheep! Most people only read the very blippy, misleading headlines and believe whatever news media tells them, instead of doing the hard work called RESEARCH. The social media tycoons aren’t fools. They know which side their bread is buttered on. The elected politician who tries to “bust up their party” and their “get richer” power schemes walks a lonely road. People of the USA, you don’t realize it but Trump is akin to a modern day Robin Hood. Yes, he has loads of money, but he also sacrificed billions to serve our county so ‘We the People’ could have better opportunities to raise our own standard of living. What incentive did he have other than his own conscience to help us. Bush and Obama never sacrificed a dime, nor will Biden. They are swamp rats-in-cahoots and always will be. Just think about how much more rich those 3 politician became during and after their stint in office.
