Big Tech is hell-bent on helping Democrats and shutting down conservatives.
But not every tactic they use to take them out is visible.
Now, Schumer and Pelosi are furious after Big Tech’s secret scheme to tip elections to Democrats was exposed with this bombshell report.
Despite the dominance of social media, email is still one of essential tools of online communication.
This is especially true for fundraising for political campaigns.
Conservative outsiders like President Trump and Marjorie Taylor Greene have been able to raise millions in small dollar donations through their email fundraising.
Email has also become a critical tool for election mobilization and get out the vote efforts.
Google dominates email services with about 1.8 billion users worldwide.
With over 35% of all emails in America received on Gmail, it’s not a platform conservatives can ignore if they’re going to reach like-minded Americans.
But Google is notoriously biased against conservatives.
Gmail’s secretive algorithm determines what gets marked as spam and what ends up in an inbox.
North Carolina State University conducted a groundbreaking study to put email provider’s bias to the test.
It set up new accounts on Gmail and other major email providers to subscribe to emails of over 200 political campaigns during the 2020 election.
The results they found were truly disturbing.
Gmail was more likely to mark emails from conservative candidates as spam.
It marked more than two-thirds of conservative emails as spam.
Meanwhile, the vast majority of left-wing candidates’ emails got through.
And closer towards the election, even more conservative emails were marked as spam.
“The fact remains their spam filtering algorithms have learned to mark more emails from one political affiliation as spam compared to the other,” the study said.
“As these prominent email services are actively used by a sizable chunk of voting population and as many of the voters today rely on the information they see (or don’t see) online, such biases may have an unignorable impact on the outcomes of an election,” they added.
This stealth attempt to harm conservatives may have never seen the light of day if not for the study.
Google predictably denied any bias against conservatives.
But they can’t hide behind their secretive algorithm giving them deniability.
This is one of the most outrageous, underhanded attempts yet by Big Tech to target conservatives.
Based on the study, the Republican National Committee estimated that Republican candidates lost nearly $2 billion in donations since the 2020 election cycle, according to Fox News.
In close races, that money could be the difference between victory and defeat.
Cutting off Republican “get out the vote” emails could have tipped close races to Democrats.
“Big Tech has been silencing conservative voices and actively working against Republicans for multiple cycles. Google’s e-mail suppression – which affects the GOP’s fundraising and GOTV efforts – is another egregious example. Silicon Valley oligarchs are suppressing free political speech,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement with other Republican leaders.
This study could be the beginning of exposing Big Tech’s secret schemes.
