Social networks have a long history of suppressing conservative voices on their platforms. Perhaps the worst of the worst has been Twitter. Once a fun, growing social network, Twitter has become the poster child of enraged, social justice warriors who oppressive conservatives. Now, the site has taken another step towards trying to interfere with the 2020 Election. They hired a Trump hater to “fact check” conservatives.
Social media giants who once dominated the industry are rapidly dying. Each day, we learn about a new website that embraces diversity of thought and free speech. Large groups of users are fleeing websites like Facebook and Twitter, sick and tired of their games. It wasn’t always this way. Pre-2016, people flocked to these websites. But after Trump was elected, something changed dramatically.
It’s no secret that liberal-run social networks have tried to silence conservatives. Popular accounts and users have been shadow banned, demonetized, or outright kicked off sites like YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. It’s clear that Silicon Valley is run by leftists, too afraid to let thoughtful, likeable conservatives have a voice on their networks.
Now, it’s getting worse. With the election around the corner, Twitter just implemented a bogus new “fact checking” feature. They will label tweets that they deem inaccurate, in order to discourage users from interacting with others (the opposite of a social network’s goal). And the person running this new feature? Oh, he’s a well-known Trump hater.
Twitter’s “Head of Site Integrity” Yoel Roth boasts on his LinkedIn that he is in charge of “developing and enforcing Twitter’s rules,” like the one that led Twitter to slap a new “misleading” warning label on two of President Trump’s tweets concerning mail-in balloting on Tuesday.
However, Roth’s own barrage of anti-Trump, politically charged tweets seemingly calls into question whether he should be creating guidelines for the president and other Twitter users…
Roth has previously referred to Trump and his team as “ACTUAL NAZIS,” mocked Trump supporters by saying that “we fly over those states that voted for a racist tangerine for a reason,” and called Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., a “personality-free bag of farts.”
… In September 2016, Roth tweeted, “I’ve never donated to a presidential campaign before, but I just gave $100 to Hillary for America. We can’t fu-k around anymore.” [Source: Fox News]
So, the man in charge of Twitter’s “integrity” donated to Hillary Clinton and has frequently attacked Trump and his supporters. It’s a level of hypocrisy worthy of George Orwell.
The man that is supposed to “protect” Twitter from false information has a clear reason to brand anything conservatives say as “fake,” because of his own wild bias.
Keep in mind, this isn’t some kind of moderate liberal profession who is intelligent enough to give conservatives the benefit of the doubt. This is a rabid, far-left Democrat clearly suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. This is the same kind of pathetic, socialist-loving Millennial that rages whenever a conservative uses facts to trump his emotional outbursts.
Twitter thinks a con man like this has the ability to brand your tweets true or false.
It’s obvious what’s happening. Twitter is run by far-left Democrats. They don’t like Trump or conservatives and they aren’t interested in giving them a fair shot. So, they cooked up this bogus feature, giving them an excuse to silence conservatives even further.
Why else would they label tweets “false,” instead of just taking them down or blocking the user? Because they still want you using Twitter. They just want to push you around, forcing you into the corner so you can’t make an impact. Yeah, they’ll still take the ad dollars you bring in, but you’ll never be able to influence other people with your thoughts or ideas.
Perhaps the wisest thing Trump could do right now is say goodbye to this toxic platform. Watch how many will leave Twitter with him.
