ENOUGH: Massive petition drive launched to force an end to social media “shadow banning” and other forms of censorship
-by JD Heyes
In recent months several reports have surfaced in independent and conservative media that the social media giants — Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Google, primarily — have been censoring and “shadow banning” their content, as well as the content of ordinary platform users who simply take political and social positions the Left-wing social media behemoths don’t like.
Tech giants will not voluntarily restore a level playing field for speech
Infowars has announced a massive petition drive aimed at forcing the social media giants to end their practice of algorithm-based censoring and shadow-banning — secretly censoring a user’s content without the user knowing it’s been censored. (Related: Two of the world’s most evil people – Bill Gates and George Soros – behind Facebook’s news censorship agenda.)
Infowars’ Paul Joseph Watson writes:
Massive studies have proven that algorithms can shift millions of votes and change the outcome of national elections. This in itself is election meddling and should be illegal. All we are asking for is a level playing field.
Since social media platforms are now de facto becoming the Internet and have formed into monopolies, the argument that they are private companies who can behave with impunity is no longer valid. We demand congressional and parliamentary scrutiny. We demand a Digital Rights Act to secure free speech online.
He writes further that it’s been confirmed Twitter has implemented a site-wide shadow ban of conservatives under the guise of “Quality Filter Discrimination.” That’s the Left essentially justifying its censorship by arbitrarily deciding that a conservative’s content posts are “offensive,” “racist,” “bigoted,” or otherwise unsuitable simply because they don’t toe the liberal line.
That means, PJW says, that users who are not following others, in particular, don’t see their content, which dramatically reduces their reach and influence.
Left-wing users’ accounts, however, are not being affected.
We know that the social media behemoths are all in for Left-wing Democrats, who are becoming more like Socialists by the day.
We know that algorithm changes can affect election outcomes.
We know that the social media giants are boosting Left-wing content and censoring conservative content.
It’s time the Left was made to compete equally on the field of ideas rather than steal power like a thief in the night.
