It’s no secret that Big Tech companies have been censoring conservatives. Whether Shadow Banning on Twitter or yanking videos from YouTube, many of you know what I’m talking about and have experienced it firsthand. Donald Trump Jr. just dropped an article in The Hill about Big Tech censorship and how it’s getting worse leading up to the 2020 election.
Free Speech is under attack at a level never seen before in the USA. Donald Trump Jr. explains how he noticed it's getting out of hand:
I certainly had my suspicions confirmed when Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, “accidentally” censored a post I made regarding the Jussie Smollett hoax,
It didn't stop there. He started hearing from followers on Instagram that they were constantly having to re-follow him for some strange reason. And more evidence that Facebook is suppressing conservative speech.
Thanks to a brave Facebook whistleblower who approached James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, we now know that Mark Zuckerberg’s social media giant developed algorithms to “deboost” certain content, limiting its distribution and appearance in news feeds.
Of course you're not going to hear many liberals complain as it seems to mainly target conservatives. Facebook is using algorithms to detect conservative 'buzz words' like "red-pill" or "SJW".Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) is addressing this head-on.
“Google and Facebook should not be a law unto themselves,” Hawley declared. “They should not be able to discriminate against conservatives. They should not be able to tell us we need to sit down and shut up!”
Let's hope some other members of Congress and Senate start standing up for the 1st Amendment as well as putting an end to the 'sweet deals' these Big Tech companies have been getting. They've proven they don't deserve them.
