Social media has become the new public square.
And sites like Twitter are actively manipulating the public conversation.
Now one lawsuit could expose that Twitter colluded to censor people for a shocking reason.
It’s no secret that Big Tech oligarchs lean Left politically, but now they’re actively working with the government in a quasi-fascist relationship.
Emails released in response to a FOIA request showed that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was more than willing to curate the conservation around COVID-19 according to Dr. Anthony Fauci’s wishes.
And now Twitter could be in hot water for censoring conservatives at the behest of Democrat politicians running for office.
The Center for American Liberty, a legal nonprofit organization, is suing Twitter and the State of California on behalf of Rogan O’Handley, a pro-Trump advocate who was banned online.
Center for American Liberty argued:
In 2018, the state government of California created the Office of Elections Cybersecurity to “educate voters” with “valid information” on election laws and procedures. And as any sensible person could predict, this office quickly devolved into a political weapon for censorship by the far-left Secretary of State’s Office, more resembling a Harry Potter like “Ministry of Approved Election Information” than a constitutionally governed state agency.
Leading up to the 2020 election and in the months following it, Twitter, at the direction government employees at the California Office of Elections Cybersecurity, discriminately removed tweets posted by conservative social media influencers criticizing Joe Biden and questioning the legitimacy of the 2020 election. Their objective was simple—censor their political opponents.
Democrats had direct access to Twitter executives who could censor any counter-narrative speech.

One such Democrat was Alex Padilla, who was successful in his attempt to fill Kamala Harris’s Senate seat.

The corrupt collusion between Democrats and Big Tech is putting a damper on America’s culture of free speech.
Many leftists fundamentally don’t believe in free speech; neo-Marxist philosopher Herbert Marcuse argued for “repressive tolerance,” i.e. not tolerating the intolerant.
The Left has decided that conservatives are “intolerant,” so they can be censored online.
