Big tech acting as Dems' Pravda

Adriana Cohen on

Big Tech is the biggest threat to democracy -- and must be reined in by Congress -- before our rights enshrined in the Constitution protecting free speech and freedom of the press are placed in the dustbins of history.

On Wednesday, Twitter and Facebook acted no different than Communist state-run media organizations that corruptly block the distribution of information and news stories they don't like.

These social media networks run by high-tech oligarchs in Silicon Valley -- in the tank for the Democratic Party -- barred a sourced New York Post story exposing alleged emails between Joe Biden's son Hunter and a powerful Ukrainian executive while Hunter Biden was on the board of a Ukraine natural gas company -- getting paid as much as $50,000 per month despite no industry expertise -- while Vice President Biden was the point man on Ukraine during the Obama administration.

Not only did Facebook and Twitter block users from posting the bombshell report calling Joe Biden's statements denying knowledge of his son's business dealings into question, amongst other valid concerns, but also Twitter locked the New York Post's account and that of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany. "It's not a temporary blockage," McEnany told Fox News host Sean Hannity. "When I log on to my Twitter account, it says I'm permanently banned. They essentially have me at gunpoint and said unless you delete this story, a news story by the New York Post, I cannot regain access to my account."

If this type of thuggish censorship and election interference doesn't send a chill up your spine, what will?

The reality is that if the arrogant overlords in Silicon Valley can censor the president's tweets, which they do regularly, as well as a top White House official and major newspaper for reporting on a presidential candidate during an election, then no American citizen or media outlet is safe from similar censorship.

 

On Thursday, the power-trippers at Twitter continued their out of control censorship by silencing high-ranking members of Congress and links they post to government websites.

"Twitter is now blocking an official government website to protect Joe Biden," tweeted House Republican Whip Steve Scalise. "WATCH what happens when you click the link to @JudiciaryGOP's website.

Twitter censors the United States House of Representatives but not propaganda from Communist China and Iran.

Let that sink in."
