Big Tech Collusion Against Conservatives

Postby desertrat » Tue Aug 07, 2018 3:14 pm

THE PURGE
Why is liberal hate speech not being censored?
A handful of far left hysterics in San Francisco framing legitimate criticism of of mass immigration and Islam as hate speech. This is language policing. This is political censorship.

Alex Jones is Now an Unperson
The fascist left censoring the extreme right. There will probably be a court case and this might energize those on the right in a way never seen before.

Facebook bans InfoWars
Both laws against discrimination and anti-trust regulations potentially apply here.

Ingraham: Big tech and the new corporate censorship
This is a true threat to our democracy. Silencing the opposition (aka, information control) is intended to influence the outcome of the midterm elections and undermine the ability of conservatives to get elected to office. Platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc. should be deemed public utilities and held to strict standards of fairness and non-discrimination.

He Just Disappeared
YouTube supports liberal speech and even monetizes it, but conservative speech is censored and demonetized.
:curse: Double-standard? Glaringly obvious!!!

This is a coordinated attack against free speech. Like the guy in this video says, things are about to get rather interesting...

Many people try to argue that YouTube and Facebook are private companies and so they can do anything they want to do. That's simply not true. They cannot discriminate against individuals based on political affiliation. Once they cross that line they have violated that person's human rights. They can design all sorts of rules about hate speech or fake news intended to obscure this reality, but the bottom line is that discrimination is discrimination just like a pig is still a pig despite the application of some lipstick.

Big Tech's coordinated attack on free speech
If standards were used evenly against people from all political perspectives, then that would at least be fair. However, what we have here is the selective use of standards to go after only people who represent certain politically incorrect perspectives. That's discriminatory and that's where the legal problems begin.

Great thread!

I never cared for Alex Jones but banning him is akin to banning free speech and hurts us all.
Make Trona great again!
