Big Tech Control and Your Freedom

Big tech control and your freedom

Big tech control and your freedom is something you should pay attention to. What big tech is doing to conservatives might well be something described by Martin Niemöller.

First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.

As we enter the final stretch of the election. We are watching the integrity of our political process being eroded by Leftist Big Tech. This may seem far-fetched, but this is exactly what is happening. Republican political candidates are facing the banning of their political advertising.

This is happening for the final week of the campaign. This means candidates and their campaigns will be unable to reach voters via this platform. The last week is a critical window before they cast their ballot. The move affects Republicans much more severely than it will Democrats.

This time the tampering harms conservatives…

Public polling shows most Democrats have already voted. Most Republicans will be voting during these final days of Early Voting or on Election Day.  This ban on political advertising is an attempt by Facebook to suppress the Republican vote. The social media platform is prohibiting Republican campaigns from reaching infrequent voters with Get Out The Vote ads. This is the time when those ads are most effective.

This latest action from Facebook is only part of a disturbing pattern of behavior. It is true of Facebook but equivalent behaviors are coming from Silicon Valley. Big Tech is operated by Leftists. They are censoring, blocking, banning, pushing content and skewing search results in addition to silencing conservative candidates and campaigns. Big tech control and your freedom are not synonyms.

It is becoming increasingly obvious they and the mainstream media are simply frightened of the truth. The truth is not the result they support. Twitter has banned political advertising, deleted tweets, and blocked accounts. Facebook has deleted accounts, denied conservative ads for no reason, and made themselves the self appointed judge of what constitutes truth.

The most egregious and highest profile example of this behavior are the continuing attempts to cover up the actions of Hunter Biden and his father. The shady business dealings and conduct of Hunter Biden are a problem. It appears his dad is implicated. The questions not asked, though they should be, are: Did Joe Biden sell his office? Is he compromised by foreign influence?

The actions taken not only have bias, they are intolerant

Would Facebook et al have expended so much energy on this if it had been a Trump relative? Not a chance. It would have been the top trending topic on all social media platforms for days. Twitter has even had the audacity to block the account of the White House Press Secretary. That is the communications office of the President of the United States.

They did so at a key moment in the election campaign. That is outrageous and unacceptable behavior. It is no surprise that Leftists from these big tech firms have been major political contributors. Their money has gone to the Biden campaign. It is these people have more dollars than sense.

The attempts by the big tech Leftists to censor candidates debase the political process. If you don’t agree with them, they want to silence you. That’s not how freedom works. Unfettered communication with the voters is a pillar of free political speech.

The actions of big tech are un-American. The freedom of speech rights enshrined in the First Amendment are part of the fabric of our nation. This big tech censorship is not just an attack on conservatives. It is an attack on libertarians and classic liberals. Bottom line it is an attack on America itself. Big tech control and your freedom is important because just because you aren’t their current target doesn’t meant you aren’t next.

Fortunately, alternatives for reaching the electorate exist. Conservative organizations are emerging to give conservative candidates and causes the ability to fight back. We make adjustments in the current system to show Big Tech that they don’t pull all of our strings just yet.
