With each passing day, the liberals prove that they are just as pathetic as they are tyrannical.
Last week, Gloria Allred and Roy Moore accuser Beverly Nelson sat down for an interview on ABC’s Good Morning America in a last ditch effort to knock Moore out of the Alabama senate race. During the interview, Nelson admitted that she tampered with the note that Roy Moore wrote to her in her yearbook decades ago. But according to the left, the fact that Nelson tampered with Roy Moore’s yearbook note is “fake news” – even though the owner of the yearbook herself admitted to it on national television.
When The Gateway Pundit tried to post a story on Facebook highlighting Nelson’s comments that she made during the interview, the social media giant and the left-wing website Politifact joined forces and shut the post down. In an article about the banned post on Facebook, The Gateway Pundit wrote that “Politifact needs to issue a correction and apology,” and urged Facebook “to dump these far left hacks from playing God on the Internet or admit that they are biased against conservative websites.” (Related: Facebook censors Natural News from users who want it, but won’t allow you to block Mark Zuckerberg’s feed.)
The Gateway Pundit is right — Facebook is incredibly biased against conservatives who use the social media platform to advance their message. In fact, it’s so politically one-sided that Fox News once compiled an entire list of conservatives who have been suppressed or otherwise silenced after posting right-of-center content. The list featured several prominent names and organizations, such as Trump supporter Lauren Southern, the conservative group “Chicks on the Right,” numerous Christian organizations, and others. But while there’s an abundance of evidence that suggests Facebook is out to specifically target conservatives, Mark Zuckerberg and his team aren’t the only ones that have engaged in political censorship as of late. (Related: Google, Facebook and YouTube are on a mission to censor all pro-trump voices by any means possible.)
Earlier this year, Twitter officially announced that it was launching an initiative aimed at combatting “potentially abusive or low-quality Tweets,” a move that has since opened the door to a whole host of Constitutional issues and free speech violations.
“Making Twitter a safer place is our primary focus,” Twitter wrote in a blog post back in February. “We stand for freedom of expression and people being able to see all sides of any topic. That’s put in jeopardy when abuse and harassment stifle and silence those voices. We won’t tolerate it and we’re launching new efforts to stop it.”
It is almost laughable how Twitter claims to stand for the freedom of expression in a blog post about censorship and the suppression of “low quality” content. And of course, by “low quality” content, Twitter means posts and news articles that do not align with the progressive left’s agenda. We saw this type of politicized censorship on Twitter just a few weeks ago, when the social media site banned a pro-life political ad from Representative Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, who is currently running to replace Senator Bob Corker. This is exactly the reason why so many conservatives are skeptical of so-called “fact-checkers” being employed by social media sites like Facebook and Twitter — even though they claim to just be combatting hate speech and fake news, it’s almost always about the silencing of conservatives.
It really is a shame to see all of the freedoms that brave men and women fought and died for starting to circle the drain at the hands of politically biased CEOs and corporate executives. The Founding Fathers understood better than most that once liberty is gone, it is incredibly difficult to get back, often times requiring blood and great sacrifice to make even the slightest progress back in the right direction. The censorship that takes place on the Internet is no joke, and quite frankly, Facebook, Twitter and others should be ashamed.
