Donald Trump changed the game forever.
He exposed the deep-seated corruption within the establishment and their Big Tech gatekeepers.
And Mark Zuckerberg and Silicon Valley leftists are running for cover after a jaw-dropping report exposed just how far they’ve gone.
The European migrant crisis of 2015, Brexit, and the election of Donald Trump in 2016 scared the hell out of the globalist establishment.
The elites had to find a way to reclaim control of the narrative, and their solution was online censorship.
Over the past five years, online censorship has run amok, and so-called liberals are cheering it on under the guise of combating “hate speech” and “disinformation.”
And the censorship is even worse than people think.
CensorTrack.org reported that it “has identified and verified over 4,000 individual examples of censorship. For purposes of this study, we looked at only the first quarter of 2022 wherein 172 cases were identified. An analysis of the audiences of those individuals/organizations alone found that in that three-month period, there were no less than 144,301,713 times information was withheld from the American people. This phenomenon is best thought of as ‘secondhand censorship.’ Secondhand censorship is defined as the number of times that users on social media had information kept from them.”
The project looked at censorship on the biggest social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, TikTok, Instagram, Spotify, and LinkedIn.
All of the platforms have censored people for various reasons.
For example, spreading “disinformation” about COVID-19 or the 2020 election triggered automatic censorship, and suspension in some cases.
Even videos of left-wingers showing Donald Trump talking about 2020 was grounds for censorship, which was a bridge too far even for far-left outlets like The Verge.
On YouTube, mentioning the name Eric Chiaramella, the Ukraine whistleblower, would get a video instantly nuked.
CensorTrack added that “the biggest example is former President Donald Trump, who was removed from all major social media platforms in early 2021. Based on the size of his Twitter audience alone and the frequency of his tweeting, this would have pushed the Q1 secondhand censorship total into the billions.”
The power of online censorship was on full display when The New York Post’s Hunter Biden “Laptop from hell” bombshell report was suppressed on Facebook and Twitter.
The Post was locked out of its Twitter account and users could not even share the story via direct private message.
The Democrats have brought Big Tech into the fold, and the consequences are just now being understood.
