In a whistleblower video released by Project Veritas, a hidden recording of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey reveals the Big Tech giant’s plans to silence conservative Americans. According to the video, “We are focused on one account [@realDonaldTrump] right now, but this is going to be much bigger than just one account, and it’s going to go on for much longer than just this day, this week, and the next few weeks, and go on beyond the inauguration.”
This latest video, recorded just two days after the Capitol building protest in Washington DC, unmasks Twitter’s true intentions. Their silencing of President Trump’s account is not the end of their efforts; it is only the beginning.
Following Twitter’s indefinite removal of President Trump’s account, a collusion of digital companies joined in shutting down his media. Facebook, Instagram (owned by Facebook), Twitch (owned by Amazon), Shopify, YouTube (owned by Google), Snapchat, TikTok, and payment processor Stripe have since joined the boycott.
But the end goal was not President Trump. After rumors he may join conservative social media site Parler, Apple and Google removed the social site’s app from their stores. Amazon, the company hosting Parler’s website, shut down Parler within 72 hours of the Capitol building protest, claiming the site’s lack of moderation assisted in inciting violence.
Even shutting down the most popular conservative social network was not enough for Big Tech. Facebook has since decided to delete any content that questions the results of the 2020 presidential election. Twitter has deleted more than 70,000 accounts since January 6. TikTok is removing any controversial hashtags, such as #stormthecapitol or even #patriotparty.
Why is Big Tech out to shut down both President Trump and anyone who supports him? Could this really be about hate—or something bigger?
One possibility includes connections in the new Biden-Harris administration. For example, Twitter’s global policy leader Emily Horne has already agreed to join the Biden administration as National Security Council Spokesperson. She also formerly served on the same Council during the Obama administration.
Jessica Hertz has joined the Biden team as general counsel. Her previous role? Director and associate general counsel for Facebook’s regulatory team.
Another Facebook “friend” is former Facebook public policy director Louisa Terrell. She just happened to be selected as the new White House director of legislative affairs.
And don’t forget Rachel Lieber. She works on the Biden intelligence community transition team. To have the best intel, you definitely need the former Facebook director and associate general counsel. And just to be safe, better add Twitter’s public policy director Carlos Monje to the Biden transition team.
You can’t make this stuff up. Big Tech’s leaders are coming soon to a White House near you.
The Biden-Harris administration might be aware of free speech, but they sure won’t be allowing it without a fight. The tentacles reach deeply into nearly every corner of digital communications, offering unprecedented power to turn off any message they don’t want Americans to see.
