Censorship, American-style: Big Tech speech control factored into Trump's defeat:
Speaking one’s mind is an abiding American tradition. It is becoming rarer, though, as censorship intensifies. The just-completed 2020 presidential election featured a torrent of political messages designed to win votes, but the flow was channeled to shield voters from messages that conflicted with “progressive” values dear to social media’s masters. Put bluntly, Big Tech played a pivotal role in Joe Biden’s apparent victory and Donald Trump’s defeat. The president’s response is equally stark: a veto of the $740 billion 2021 National Defense Authorization Act: He had demanded it contain language removing social media’s freedom to suppress speech. It didn’t.
The breadth of censorship is staggering. In a study released Monday, the Media Research Center reported that since 2018, Twitter has “censored, suppressed and limited” the accounts of President Trump and his campaign 543 times, denying the platform’s 330 million users unfettered access to the president’s messages. Just since Dec. 14, Trump-associated accounts have been slapped with warning labels 57 times. The number of occasions Twitter has docked Mr. Biden and his team: zero.
The watchdog report cites two recent Trump tweets: One message refers to a judge’s order for the release of an audit of Dominion Voting Systems machines, suspected of tabulation irregularities in Michigan. The other is a link to the audit itself. Twitter labeled both as disputed claims. Obviously, a court-ordered audit is no fiction, but censors stamped it as unreliable simply because Mr. Trump publicized it. --->READ MORE HERE
How Tax-Exempt Zuckerbucks Funded Biden:
A flood of tax-exempt money from the Facebook founder gave Dems an unfair and illegal advantage.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife helped buy the presidency for the increasingly frail and feeble former Vice President Joe Biden by improperly influencing election officials as they strategically flooded left-wing activist groups with more than $400 million during the 2020 election cycle.
Those groups, in turn, gave huge grants to election administrators in order to create “a two-tiered election system that treated voters differently depending on whether they lived in Democrat or Republican strongholds,” Phill Kline, director of the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society, a public interest law firm focused on religious freedom, wrote in a new report.
Part of the lesson here is that not all privatization is good. Some things need to be done by government alone.
“This privatization of elections undermines the Help America Vote Act (HAVA), which requires state election plans to be submitted to federal officials and approved and requires respect for equal protection by making all resources available equally to all voters,” according to Kline.
And this illicit collusion between pro-Biden funders like Zuckerberg and government officials that outsourced election administration to the activist Left helped Democrats prevail in battleground states. It may end up installing a puppet of the Communist Chinese in the White House in the terminal stage of the rolling coup attempt against President Donald Trump that began before he was inaugurated.
This year there was “an unprecedented and coordinated public-private partnership to improperly influence” the election in swing states, which “effectively placed government’s thumb on the scale to help these private interests achieve their objectives and to benefit” Barack Obama’s former vice president, according to Kline, a former attorney general of Kansas. --->READ MORE HERE
