**Artificial Intelligence: The Left’s Next Weapon Against Free Speech**
A recent warning by Dan Schneider, MRC Free Speech America & MRC Business Vice President, alerts us of the chilling plan leftists have in mind for using artificial intelligence (AI) against conservative thought. The strategy aims to “clean the internet” of conservative ideas, allowing for smooth infiltration by leftist narratives in the online world.
Schneider appeared on Fox Business’s Varney & Co. to highlight potential dangers associated with AI. He shared concerns that Democrats in positions of power recognize AI as the most powerful tool they’ve ever had for combatting opposition. Schneider explained the ongoing risk by pointing out how AI collects all existing data in order to synthesize an average. He expressed concern that the same Big Tech giants who have already shown hostility towards conservative speak, by censoring or silencing them, are the ones entrusted with developing algorithms.
Schneider fears that once the AI begins to omit conservative perspectives from search results, this would practically allow for censorship in the internet space. To counter this, Schneider emphasized the need for immediate action from Congress to avoid falling into the abusive hands of Democrats who seem determined to destroy America’s founding ideals.
Although AI might also be used for good purposes, Schneider warned that the technological advancement could easily be weaponized against conservatives. This might lead to the substitution of left-wing truths in place of conservative thoughts, similar to how censorship was used against conservative voices.
Google Co-founder Larry Page has already expressed his intention for AI to become a “digital god,” aiming to provide “right responses” rather than allowing people to discern the truth independently. Schneider pointed out a more objective alternative to Google, known as Tusk, which could offer some reprieve.
The current warning flags indicate the necessity of holding Big Tech companies accountable. Pressure must be applied to ensure these companies are transparent about their AI development and provide equal ground for conservatives while clarifying on the issue of hate speech. It’s urgent for all conservatives to contact their representatives and demand the appropriate actions be taken.
