Musk Exposes Social Media Speech Suppression Racketeers
“Twitter was simply an arm of the government … basically, a state publication.”
The greatest domestic threat to American Liberty is the unmitigated suppression of conservative speech by mass and social media platforms. However, not a single Republican inside the Beltway is focusing on this threat — most are oblivious to it.
The biggest and most blatant offender is, of course, Facebook, including collaboration with Joe Biden’s White House basement speech suppression squads. That, combined with the MSM’s fake fact-check suppression schemes, has resulted in massive systemic suppression of free speech — more specifically, conservative free speech.
Notably, the Facebook suppression of Patriot Post content, which we detailed here and here, is preventing more than 750,000 of our active followers from seeing our content, despite the fact that those users have specified they want to see it.
Enter X owner Elon Musk this week, who detailed the speech suppression operation at Twitter — significant because what he is describing is precisely what is happening with the behemoth Facebook platform.
According to Musk: “The degree to which Twitter was simply an arm of the government was not well understood by the public. And … everything was like Pravda basically, a state publication, is the way to think of old Twitter. A state publication. There was basically oppression of any views that, even I would say, be considered middle-of-the-road, certainly, anything on the Right, and I’m not talking about far-right, I’m just talking mildly right. Republicans were suppressed at 10 times the rate of Democrats. That’s because old Twitter was fundamentally controlled … completely controlled by the far-left.”
Fact is, Facebook, which is also “completely controlled by the far-left,” as Twitter was, is still running a massive conservative speech suppression program.
Can you imagine what the political landscape of our nation would look like if the mass and social media platforms were actually neutral and objective? When we launched The Patriot Post online back in 1996 — you know, right after Al Gore “invented” the Internet — I saw it as the greatest advancement in free speech since the Gutenberg press. And indeed, as a medium for alternatives to the mainstream media, it has proven to be that. However, the rise of the social media monopolies enabled the leftists to, once again, constrict what users could see, regardless of what they wanted to see.
Meanwhile, Republican legislators continue to think they can make headway without busting up these monopolies, or at least disabling their ability to suppress free speech by altering or revoking their Section 230 immunity.
