Silicon Valley Axis of Evil: Twitter, Facebook To Ramp Up Censorship Against Conservatives During Midterms AGAIN!

On Wednesday, Newsbusters informed us that two of the main arms of what I call the “Silicon Valley Axis of Evil,” the Big Tech cabal of far-left anti-free speech and free press companies who regularly censor conservatives while letting liberals say and do anything they please, will once again target conservatives for censorship under the guise of ‘combating misinformation.’

Paiten Iselin reported:

Meta, the parent company of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, and Twitter pledged to target “misleading narratives” by suppressing election content they deem to be false, misleading, or dangerous. Censorship methods mentioned in the policies involved decreasing the reach of offending posts, the continued use of third-party fact-checkers, and updated content recommendation algorithms.

Facebook’s parent company Meta quietly revealed that it is preparing to tackle so-called election misinformation. The platform said it created a “dedicated team focused on the 2022 midterms to help combat election and voter interference.”

Notably, Meta’s 2022 midterm elections policy indicated that government may even collude with the platform in censoring content. “We’re working with federal government partners including the FBI and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, as well as local and state election officials and industry peers, to make sure we’re all preparing for different scenarios,” the policy noted.

Wait, what?  The same FBI that has declared war on millions of Americans and specifically, Donald Trump, will collude with Facebook to censor speech?  That’s what the report just said.

Iselin continued by mentioning Twitter’s efforts to undermine a free press:

The platform then bragged about the effectiveness of its censorship. Redesigned warning labels yielded “promising results” in quashing the reach of content Twitter deemed dangerous, the platform also claimed. These new labels “increased click through rates by 17%, meaning more people were clicking labels to read debunking content.” The platform also noticed decreased engagement with labeled tweets: “-13% in replies, -10% in Retweets and -15% in likes.”

Twitter even updated its content recommendation algorithms. The platform claimed it explored ways to “prevent misleading Tweets from being recommended through notifications.” Early testing showed that “impressions on misleading information dropped by 1.6 million per month.”

But we’ve seen all this before. Big Tech platforms have proven time and again that they only value civic conversation about elections when it aligns with their preferred narrative.

And we know who — or what — they prefer.  We’ve covered that here multiple times.  Let’s not forget that Twitter (a company whose employees openly admitted they are “commie as f**k“) and Facebook are the same entities that censored a New York Post article about Hunter Biden — only to find out months later the reports were all TRUE.

And of course, we all know that Big Tech played a HUGE role in electing His Lying Demented Fraudulence, Dictator-Wannabe Joe “Applesauce Brains” Biden.

The censorship won’t be limited to those two outlets.  TikTok will also engage in censorship:

Chinese Communist Party-tied TikTok has also aligned with leftist U.S.-based social media platforms in blocking so-called election misinformation, according to Reclaim The Net. TikTok has reportedly censored several hashtags that the platform claimed promoted “conspiracy theories” about the 2020 U.S. presidential election.

“TikTok prohibits election misinformation, including claims that the 2020 election was fraudulent, and works with independent fact-checking organizations who help assess content so that violations of our Community Guidelines can be promptly removed,” a platform spokesperson reportedly told The Washington Post.

There’s only one response to this government-sponsored attack on our First Amendment free press rights.  Sign up to alternative outlets like GETTR and Truth Social.  There are plenty of others, as we’ve reported here.

The bottom line: Don’t continue to let yourself be enslaved to the Axis powers.
