Social media giants such as Twitter and Facebook have long been understood to be in the pockets of the liberal left, their grip on society is now becoming an issue of political morality.
You see, the social media realm has been very nearly conquered by millennial liberals, thanks to their technological advantages. As Americans from analog generations may have made an acceptable transition into the digital age, that doesn’t mean that the wunderkinds of the connected planet are going to miraculously emerge from nursing homes in Florida either. The young have a predictable advantage when it comes to high-technology, and that is precisely why the democrats have targeted them so pointedly.
The democrats need divisiveness to thrive in America in order to stay relevant. They realize that their progressive ideals aren’t going to win over enormous swarths of the American people at once. Instead, the left divides the nation into tiny, digestible bits that are far easier to extract the votes from before flushing them down the toilet.
This tactic was supremely evident during the election of 2016, when, backed by Obama’s odd obsession, the democrats announced themselves as the de facto saviors of the transgender movement. All the left wanted were those votes, and their divide and conquer politics worked. (Just not well enough to defeat the common sense platforms of Donald Trump).
Trending: Science is Settled
The unholy alliance between the left and social media has been rumored to exist for decades, with Facebook just recently admitting to their own culling of conservative thoughts in the “trending topics” section of the site.
Next on the chopping block is Twitter, whose entire platform was built around realtime, uncensored thought. Now, after intrepid undercover investigators with Project Veritas targeted the social media behemoth, we have our proof that the left wing fix is in.
“In the latest undercover Project Veritas video investigation, current and former Twitter employees are on camera explaining steps the social media giant is taking to censor political content that they don’t like.
“This video release follows the first undercover Twitter exposé Project Veritas released on January 10th which showed Twitter Senior Network Security Engineer Clay Haynes saying that Twitter is ‘more than happy to help the Department of Justice with their little [President Donald Trump] investigation.’ Twitter responded to the video with a statement shortly after that release, stating ‘the individual depicted in this video was speaking in a personal capacity and does not represent of speak for Twitter.’ The video released by Project Veritas today features eight employees, and a Project Veritas spokesman said there are more videos featuring additional employees coming.
“On January 3rd 2018 at a San Francisco restaurant, Abhinov Vadrevu, a former Twitter Software Engineer explains a strategy, called ‘shadow banning,’ that to his knowledge, Twitter has employed:
“’One strategy is to shadow ban so you have ultimate control. The idea of a shadow ban is that you ban someone but they don’t know they’ve been banned, because they keep posting and no one sees their content. So they just think that no one is engaging with their content, when in reality, no one is seeing it.’”
Shadow banning is far from the most egregious method employed by Twitter either, with other engineers unknowingly telling Project Veritas reporters that automated censorship and a secret ranking system for users is on the horizon as well.
In knowing that the media landscape has been mired with landmines against the conservative free press, how can the left continue to hold up their ironic “Antifa” moniker, when, in fact, they are cultivating Fascism right before our very eyes.
