From Twitter and Facebook banning Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, you see that it doesn’t matter that the data is verifiably accurate. Still, the way it’s interpreted or quoted is what matters. There’s something to be said for telling the truth even if it bucks the leftist platforms narrative, and it’s telling that Republicans are starting to get banned ahead of the 2022 midterm after Facebook began working with President Joe Biden’s Administration flag misinformation.
The reason platforms like GETTR, Parler, and other free speech platforms are popular is because you don’t have to worry about being censored or banned unless you’re a White Supremacist. Still, Republicans don’t want those people on their social media platforms in the first place. It’s not hard to figure out that people want to be left alone and share their opinions, beliefs and even occasionally argue with each other. The reason it’s gotten so bad is that these platforms are trying to stop it. When they do that, it makes people want to share more information, and it’s become a badge of honor to get banned by certain leftist personalities and politicians.
Former President Donald Trump said, “They’re boring, have only a Radical Left point of view, and are hated by everyone!”
There’s some validation to the claim, although not entirely. Algorithms work with you to show you content that you are most likely to view, like, and share. Though there is a big chance Conservative points of view will be censored, “shadow banned,” and even taken down, conservatives are very likely to see what they want to, even if it has to be watered down to stay on the platforms.
Joe Rogan’s recent guest Dr. Robert Malone, a virologist focusing on mRNA technology, was also banned from Twitter for sharing COVID-19 information.
Rogan posted on GETTR, “Just in case sh-t over at Twitter gets even dumber, I’m here now as well. Rejoice!”
It’s frustrating for many people because they do business on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Just because they post about right-leaning topics and COVID-19 information means they can’t do that anymore. It’s unjustified for these platforms to utilize their control in this way, and it has to stop.
It would be like giving students and parents school choices and not applying to a new school. It’s a monopoly through and through and has to be stopped at some point.
Big tech’s censorship of the New York Post’s article about Hunter Biden’s laptop was also uncalled for. Media networks have to be allowed to speak freely. The constitution is clear that journalism is well within everyone’s first amendment rights, and the New York Post is undoubtedly a news outlet. It was just before the 2020 election, where big tech was using its control to sway voters’ opinions of each candidate and make sure that they made President Joe Biden look as put together as possible. It wasn’t until after the election that most realized that he wasn’t put together at all, especially in the head.
