The latest expose from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas is important and shocking, but it won’t come as a surprise to most conservatives who post anything on social media sites.
This is a long and detailed article that demands careful reading, but it’s worthwhile to do so. A former Facebook employee and whistleblower explains how leftist moderators inside Facebook have the power to create false accusations against users they disagree with, and they can and do take down their pages without even notifying the users that it's been done. One of their actual excuses for doing this is a violation defined as showing nonpartisan people blunt truths to convert them to their viewpoint. Convincing people to agree with you by telling them the truth? We can’t have that on the Internet!
This suppressing of conservative voices on giant social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, etc.) that should be open, nonpartisan public forums is a growing problem that must be remedied now. As Tucker Carlson noted, what we’ve been seeing with the recent silencing of various well-known and highly-followed conservatives is a test-run for the 2020 election. In 2016, Donald Trump used social media to go around a mainstream media corrupted by partisanship and reach the people directly. Many Silicon Valley social justice warriors seem determined not to let that happen again. In close elections, all it might take to swing some races would be a last minute censoring of 10 to 20% of online conservative get-out-the-vote messages.
The limousine liberal billionaires behind these social media companies need to learn in no uncertain terms that if they don’t start behaving like responsible, nonpartisan public utilities, they might face the very real prospect of their money-printing sites actually becoming public utilities.
