Time for Twitter CEO to Testify

It’s high time to haul Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in to testify before Congress. Thankfully, Rep. Jim Jordan is on the job. On Wednesday, the ranking member of the House Judiciary sent a letter to Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., requesting Dorsey’s presence along with other big tech CEOs at an upcoming antitrust hearing July 27.

Not a minute too soon.

The American people deserve an explanation of how presidential hopeful Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Jeff Bezos, Tesla CEO Elon Musk and other high-profile Twitter accounts were breached by hackers recently — threatening our national security — especially in the run-up to the election. Lawmakers must also address Twitter’s extreme bias and rampant censorship of conservatives — spanning years now — which warrants immediate congressional action.

There’s hardly a week that goes by where Twitter doesn’t censor or shadowban scores of conservatives on its platform — including the president — while allowing far-left and radical accounts to stand that flagrantly violate its code of conduct. Some of these controversial accounts include Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who on Tuesday tweeted, “The Islamic Republic of Iran will never forget the martyrdom of Hajj Qasem Soleimani and will definitely strike a reciprocal blow to the US.”

In Twitter’s twisted worldview, it’s acceptable for the sharia ruler of Iran, a nation designated by the U.S. State Department as “the world’s worst state sponsor of terrorism” to have a Twitter account and to celebrate a mass murderer like Qassem Soleimani, who was responsible for the killing of at least 600 Americans — including U.S. soldiers — while the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Apparently, it is also acceptable to threaten an attack on the United States. But if Americans dare to support President Trump or espouse conservative viewpoints the liberal elites at Twitter disagree with, they risk being “downranked” or purged from the platform.

This topsy-turvy political discrimination is revolting, anti-American and cannot stand in a democracy.

“Americans are tired of the double standard when it comes to Twitter’s regulation of speech,” Jordan told me via a statement on Wednesday. “No matter how you spin it, there seems to be different rules for Conservatives and liberals on the platform. Twitter recently ‘fact checked’ President Trump’s tweets. Did Twitter ever fact check Rep. Adam Schiff’s tweets on Russia? Did Twitter ever fact check China’s lies about the coronavirus? Did Twitter ever fact check the WHO (World Health Organization)? No, they didn’t.”

Jordan warned: “It’s time for Twitter to stop the bias, and stop targeting Conservatives on their site. If not, they’ll face the consequences.”

Deservedly. Twitter allows Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan on its platform despite his long history of anti-Semitism, as well as many other controversial figures and groups. Yet, it proactively targets those on the right.

This week, Twitter announced its removal of QAnon, a far-right group known for spreading conspiracy theories, along with its reported 150,000 followers and/or affiliates. Yet, for the past four years, Twitter permitted Democrats, the media and blue-check-marked “journalists” free rein on its network to spread the “Russia collusion” hoax against Trump — possibly the biggest conspiracy theory and disinformation campaign in modern history.

Never mind that Congress and the U.S. Department of Justice conducted multiple investigations into the left’s manufactured “Russia collusion” myth — including a 22-month special counsel investigation — which found no such evidence. Yet, Dorsey and his far-left activist employees still allow Schiff, complicit media and co-conspirators of the debunked conspiracy to remain on its platform — no questions asked.

These disgusting double standards must end.

  1. Glad to hear someone calling this out. I”m tired of one view of everything. I don’t like being in a
    country like this…..it’s not America, it’s hell. And the devil is getting it to work. Period.

    1. Tweeter is a bad thing. Letting Mike Bolin curse like the DEVIL. You did not stop it. You should not let people curse like that and about our President, Trump. You need to get you heart right and stop this from going on under Tweeter. Also Jerrold Nadler, for lying like the DEVIL. Stop this stuff. He promotes these riots, then acts like the Republicans did not. Oh so evil. The DEVIL loves those two.

  2. These big companies are ALL extreme leftists and GLOBALISTs which means that to them the US is evil, because she doesnt follow the rules of the elites.! May God put them in their place. Truth will always prevail. Pres. Trump is a GOOD man who cares for his people and wont give in to the globalists who want to destroy us.! God Bless you sir.
    Vote STRAIGHT GOP! Without the house and Senate, Pres. Trump can do nothing. they will obstruct all his agenda.

  3. MSM needs to be held accountable for spreading racism.as well as voicing their bias lies as facts .not fact checking.

  4. The Bias in this GREAT COUNTRY must be stopped. Its wrong and doing nothing but causing division. Who do we blame for this, Democrats who preaches lies non stop.
    Vote all democrats out of every political office in this Country. We may possibly save America if only True conservative Republicans win every political office. It would be extremely funny to see their faces if that happens. Lets make it happen!

  5. I say shut down all the bias news a social media. They are destroying our country. They spreading to too many lies . They are no longer there to support the people.

  6. They should have the owner of Amazon testify too. I left a review on my kindle and voiced my opinion on the BLM propaganda and the push for MSM loaded on my new kindle. Needless to say they were not thrilled and canceled my access to YouTube, it will no longer play YouTube channels. This is my only device. All other devices work fine on my Wi-Fi just not kindle.WWG1WGA

  7. This is the way Hitler took ever Germany kept trouble stured up telling people it was the conservatives and to vote his party in and it would never be better until they did. Well they did and he not only killed millions of people over the world he killed over two million German Jews in has chambers firing squad’s need I go further.

  8. The need to take this up with FB, IG and Yahoo as they are censoring everything that is said and deletes it if it’s Positive regarding President Trump. Yahoo and gone as far as to remove comments on their articles. This is where many of us look for the rest of the story or the complete story, their writers anymore give no details, half of the details, whichever fits their narrative. Pathetic and last I Knew we still have Freedom of Speech while we will lose if Biden is elected.

  9. I believe Dr. Fauci is working with the Dems and Bill Gates,pushing vaccines down our throats..He is on the Democrats team..All about money. He is a liar just like the Cuomo brothers and
    De Blasio ..Why in Gods name cant they be removed ??

  10. Why hasn’t someone with influence and power filed a law suit against Twitter? There’s been many complaints by conservatives, yet Twitter has promoted terrorist threats and anarchy.

  11. Twitter, Google, and Facebook should be deported to China, since they love China so much, and hate our having Freedom of Speech, so badly!

    If Biden wins, we’ll never again be able to tell the truth about anything, or the Left will find us, threaten us with Hate Speech Crimes, and either jail us, or have their Rioters burn us out, in an effort to kill us.

    Free Speech will be gone forever in America, and please remember this, on November 3rd!
