Democrats have shown that they will do anything to get their way.
Power is the only principle far-Left politicians like Speaker Nancy Pelosi understand.
And she is getting nervous after this Republican move against her election strategy.
The Democrats have several advantages backed in, namely their dominance over the media landscape.
And now they have added Big Tech into the fold.
Silicon Valley, which once had a libertarian streak, has moved to the Left, and many giant companies openly favor the Democrats.
The most troubling company is Google, which is arguably the most powerful company in world history.
Google has been caught manipulating its algorithm with the search function, and similar manipulation is happening with the Gmail service.
Republican politicians noticed that emails they send out get sent to spam folders at a significantly higher rate than Democrats.
And the GOP is fighting back with legislation called the Political BIAS Emails Act.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said in a statement, “Today’s Big Tech behemoths were once the gold standard of entrepreneurism and innovation, and offered space for the First Amendment to live freely. But over the years, these platforms abandoned these First Amendment principles and have instead chosen to use their immense power to pick a side in our country’s political discourse. Researchers from North Carolina State University recently found that nearly 70 percent of emails from candidates registered with the Republican Party were sent to spam email boxes by Google, compared to less than one in ten from Democrat candidates from 2019 to 2020. Given Gmail holds over 50 percent of the email market in the U.S., about 130.9 million Americans are impacted by Google’s attempt to silence Republicans.”
The ratio of 70% spam for Republicans to only 8% for Democrats is inexcusable.
These are the small but impactful ways that the Democrats rig the game for themselves.
And this is much more subtle than blacking out the New York Post’s Hunter Biden “laptop from hell” exposé.
The Political BIAS Emails Act aims to “prohibit large emails platforms like Google’s Gmail from using filtering algorithms on emails sent from a political campaign unless the owner or user of the email account took action to apply a label such as spam” and “require large email platforms to produce quarterly transparency reports noting several items including the number of instances in which emails from political campaigns — both Republican and Democrat — were flagged as spam.”
If the Republicans regain control of the government, the Political BIAS Emails Act could be one of the first pieces of legislation that passes.
Big Tech is the new battlefield, and the Democrats have a sizable head start.
