A very interesting story broke on the weekend. Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk decided to release documents that reveal how the Democrat party was able to contact Twitter in order to have critics of the regime banned. The Democrat party could also contact Twitter to have stories critical of the regime censored. It turns out that our secular left fascists are the same as any others in history.
Here’s the story from Daily Wire:
Twitter CEO Elon Musk released information through journalist Matt Taibbi Friday afternoon showing that Twitter was working in conjunction with then-Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s team, removing tweets that team Biden wanted deleted.
Musk said that he decided to release the information because it was “necessary to restore public trust” in the platform after it censored the New York Post’s bombshell report about Hunter Biden’s laptop just weeks before the 2020 presidential election.
Musk quote retweeted Taibbi’s multi-tweet thread on Twitter, writing: “Here we go!!”
Taibbi began by explaining that the company was “slowly forced to add … tools for controlling speech [that] were designed to combat the likes of spam and financial fraudsters.”
“Slowly, over time, Twitter staff and executives began to find more and more uses for these tools. Outsiders began petitioning the company to manipulate speech as well: first a little, then more often, then constantly,” Taibbi said. “By 2020, requests from connected actors to delete tweets were routine. One executive would write to another: ‘More to review from the Biden team.’ The reply would come back: ‘Handled.’”
Remember the New York Post’s story about Hunter Biden’s laptop?
“Twitter took extraordinary steps to suppress the story, removing links and posting warnings that it may be ‘unsafe,’” Taibbi continued. “They even blocked its transmission via direct message, a tool hitherto reserved for extreme cases, e.g. child pornography.”
The Federalist recalls how Facebook also censored stories that were critical of the Biden regime, at the request of the Biden regime:
Just this week, FBI Supervisory Special Agent Elvis Chan confirmed the government’s information suppression campaign to Attorneys General Eric Schmitt of Missouri and Jeff Landry of Louisiana. In his testimony, Chan disclosed that agents from the FBI’s Foreign Influence Task Force and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency met weekly with Big Tech companies to encourage censorship ahead of the 2020 election.
The FBI’s instructions inspired Facebook to reduce distribution on posts reporting about the laptop, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg admitted earlier this year.
“If the FBI… if they come to us and tell us we need to be on guard about something, then I want to take that seriously,” Zuckerberg said on an episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience.”
When the corporate media and dozens of former intelligence heads quickly brushed off Biden family corruption under the guise of “Russian disinformation,” Facebook saw its opportunity to throttle the story that would give its preferred president a bad rap.
It’s very interesting. I’ve read something about secular left regimes in history. The Nazis in Germany. The communists in Russia and China. And so on. The methods of the Democrat party and their allies in Big Tech are analogous to the methods of these other secular left regimes. It’s surprising to me that so many voters would support fascist political parties. But I guess if they don’t learn much about history in the unionized government-run public schools, then we shouldn’t be surprised.
