For the past several election cycles Big Tech has used censorship to tilt the balance of power in favor of the Democrat Party.
While Elon Musk’s now completed purchase of Twitter has rank-and-file leftist fearing the worst, the Democrat Party has other ideas.
Because Elon Musk couldn’t stop this dirty trick to help Democrats keep control of the U.S. Senate.
The 2022 Midterms are just days away – that means Big Tech is running low on time left to help secure continuing majorities for Democrats in Congress.
The ABC’s of voter suppression
A candidate’s website is crucial to his campaign.
It helps candidates get the word out to let voters know where candidates stand on the important issues of the day, recruit volunteers and raise money.
And that’s exactly why far and away the top-used search engine, Google, has reportedly made it harder for users to find the websites of Republican candidates.
A new study shows Alphabet’s Google has been suppressing 83% of GOP U.S. Senate candidate websites.
The Media Research Center’s Free Speech America project analyzed Google, Bing and DuckDuckGo search results for 12 of the most competitive U.S. Senate races across the country.
The races included Senate contests in: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington and Wisconsin.
They found that Bing and DuckDuckGo were fairly neutral in their treatment of GOP and Democrat websites.
However, hardly anyone uses those, Google is what matters.
And the MRC study found in 10 of the 12 races they looked at, the Republican candidate’s website was buried.
For seven of the 10, their campaign page didn’t even make it to the first page of the Google results.
For the other three, their websites were hidden away at the bottom of page one.
In those same races, Google highlighted the Democrat candidate’s website high in the search results.
And there is no excuse for the burial, as the researchers searched terms like, “Blake Masters Senate Race 2022” and “Mark Kelly Senate Race 2022.”
“Google must be investigated for its un-American efforts to sway the election,” said L. Brent Bozell, founder and president of the Media Research Center. “First, researchers caught Google red-handed by proving Republican campaign emails were sent to spam. Now we’ve uncovered Google manipulating search results to hide Republican campaign websites while promoting Democratic ones. This is all an effort by Google to help Democrats and interfere in the democratic process.”
Not just websites, emails too…
Bozell’s reference to GOP emails comes from a study by North Carolina State University that found Google’s Gmail marked 59.3% more emails as spam that come from “right”-leaning candidates compared to “left”-leaning candidates.
The Media Research Center is calling for a legislative solution to stop Big Tech from putting its finger firmly on the election scales.
“Members of Congress must also take action to protect Americans’ free speech liberties. Congress should fully investigate this search result bias and all efforts by Google to influence the outcome of the Midterm elections.”
