(Liberty Bell) – This week, the true nature of Silicon Valley tech tyrants reared its ugly head in a manner never seen before.
This was certainly not, however, something that millions of concerned American citizens haven’t been seriously concerned about for years now.
Tech giants Twitter, Facebook, Amazon, and Google responded to the chaos and violence at Capitol Hill on Wednesday by respectively booting President Donald Trump and his varied supporters as well as other advocates for and entities designed to promote free speech.
Twitter permanently banned President Donald Trump as Facebook temporarily banned his account on their network; both claiming that he had promoted the violence in Washington, D.C. when he did no such thing.
Conservatives have been outraged and flocking to alternative outlets like Parler and Gab—Amazon followed up by booting Parler from its web hosting claiming that it had failed to adequately mitigate content calling for violence on its platform.
This comes after years of singling out conservatives and Trump supporters for clearly targeted and biased censorship from shadow banning, loosely applied definitions of “hate speech,” permanent bans of controversial figures.
This was, of course, all while turning a blind eye to far-left or other radical extremism on their network that they couldn’t strategically suppress for the sake of promoting their preferred progressive narrative.
On Saturday, conservative firebrand and co-founder of “Blexit,” Candace Owens, released a video in which she detailed how social media outlets went from the modern, digital “public square” to a far-left purveyor of Orwellian groupthink that has prevented a sitting President of the United States from directly reaching his supporters.
“Dominant on those platforms were conservative voices like mine. We are the Americans who did not have a voice in traditional media,” Owens, originally a breakout YouTube star who has on more than one occasion been unfairly targeted by these networks, explained.
“I can be heard. That freedom infuriates the left, who used to own complete control over our information. So they hatched a plan to silence me and all of us conservatives, and Facebook is paying them for it,” she declared.
Everyone please take the time to watch this video and to SHARE it. It has important information regarding these “fact-checkers” who have culminated enough power so as to CENSOR and SILENCE a sitting President of the United States.
