Recently, a poll was conducted that showed that Republicans are on the right track when it comes to taking on big tech. The poll found that the majority of Americans agree with the GOP’s stance on regulating big tech companies after the role it played in massive censorship. This is great news for conservatives who have been fighting against these giants for years.
Breitbart reports that a new Rasmussen Reports survey shows that a majority of Americans approve of Republican plans to investigate social media companies.
In the weeks following Elon Musk’s disclosure that Twitter censored and blacklisted conservatives, Rasmussen Reports conducted a survey among 1,000 likely voters in the U.S.
According to the poll, 66 percent of likely voters approve of GOP plans to investigate social media censorship, including 43 percent who “strongly approve.” Only 26 percent disapprove, including 13 percent who “strongly disapprove.”
Republican voters (86 percent) approve of investigation plans more than Democratic voters (52 percent), but a majority of voters from both parties approve as well. 63 percent of unaffiliated voters approve of Republican investigation plans.
Conservative complained about social media platforms censoring them and democrats mocked them for making “baseless claims” only to have the truth exposed years later, thanks to Elon Musk.
Breitbart reported, released by former New York Times reporter Bari Weiss in yet another lengthy Twitter thread, that the revelations on Thursday showed that a number of conservative voices, including Charlie Kirk and Dan Bongino, had been shadowbanned by Facebook under the label “Visibility Filtering” or “VF.” The Stanford professor Jay Bhattacharya, who argued lockdowns would harm children, was even placed on Twitter’s Trends Blacklist at one point.
Based on Weiss’s tweets:
Twitter once had a mission “to give everyone the power to create and share ideas and information instantly, without barriers.” Along the way, barriers nevertheless were erected.
Take, for example, Stanford’s Dr. Jay Bhattacharya who argued that Covid lockdowns would harm children. Twitter secretly placed him on a “Trends Blacklist,” which prevented his tweets from trending.
Or consider the popular right-wing talk show host, Dan Bongino, who at one point was slapped with a “Search Blacklist.”
It is time for the Republican party to rise up and fight for their rights! Social media companies have been exposed working in league with the Democratic Party to censor voices that don’t conform to their progressive ideologies. This bullying must stop. We must take a stand against big tech giants and ensure they adhere to their principles of fairness if they continue to control global communication. It’s time to restore balance in the system by leveraging their own platforms so this abuse does not go unnoticed or accepted by those in power. It’s finally time for big tech to be afraid for a change.
