Betrayed by Social Media

The Internet and social media have been a boon to modern life. Search engines give us instant information on every possible subject, and social media allow us to reconnect with old friends and make new ones.

By Don Rosenberg

The Internet and social media have been a boon to modern life. Search engines give us instant information on every possible subject, and social media allow us to reconnect with old friends and make new ones.

As the number of users of social media have swelled, so have the heads of the leaders of the social media platforms. They sense the power they control and it has turned them into tyrants. They think they’re smart enough to determine our future, but they’re stupid enough to think they can manipulate us undetected and unpunished.

Like the audacity of NFL players thinking if they can throw a football 80 yards it means their political opinions are important, social media and websites are simply programs that run on servers, and their betrayal means they will be replaced, no matter how big they are today. Remember MySpace? In 2007 it had 100 million users per month and was valued at $12 billion.

In a sampling of 90 groups supporting President Trump, Christianity, gun rights, and individual liberties, nine groups, with members totaling over 300,000, have recently been deleted from Facebook. This is the early result of an organized campaign by Facebook to use “fact-checkers” and ever-restrictive policies as an excuse to silence conservative speech.

Other similar groups have been warned to keep their members from posting “fake news” or anything that can be interpreted as “hate speech” or else they will have their groups taken down without notice and without recourse. With an average of 35,000 members in each group, it’s almost impossible to screen every post, and a group with a few “trolls” posting blatant negative comment can be shut down very quickly. As the election gets closer, more and more groups will be deleted, depriving millions of Americans of a vital way to communicate.

Google has become particularly sinister. The company denies it, but whistleblowers have confirmed that it regularly slants results so the top results favor liberals and punish conservatives. With 40 billion searches a day, Google’s power is so massive that even something as simple as a voting reminder on Election Day can give an edge to liberal candidates. Others have calculated that biased search results can sway undecided voters by as much as 20%.

YouTube is actually the second-most-used search engine in the world. It also skews search results and takes down videos deemed to be politically incorrect.

Twitter has been exposed for “shadow banning” conservative users. It doesn’t delete their accounts, but it will “throttle back” their posts so that they lose 98% of their tweet views. Twitter, under the guise of “fact-checking,” has censored President Trump’s tweets and placed warnings on his messages.

This all came into clear focus when the infamous press conference of the “Front Line Doctors” promoting hydroxychloroquine as a successful treatment for COVID-19 was released. After 17 million views on YouTube, the video was deleted and scrubbed everywhere it was found. Facebook also deleted it, and anywhere it was mentioned it was slapped with a fact-check warning. Google the phrase “front line doctors” today and you’re presented with a gaggle of articles and videos that call them “outrageous,” “dangerous,” “misleading,” “false,” and “dubious.”

Why did a simple press conference discussing a possible 50¢ treatment for the most impactful disease in 100 years elicit such an overwhelming response? Could a coalition of Big Pharma wanting to make billions on cures and vaccines and globalists wanting to use the COVID crisis as a way to ruin President Trump’s election chances in November be the reason?

The social media giants have made it very clear that they intend to do everything possible to get Trump out of office. Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook has a team of thousands of workers manually reviewing groups for “misinformation and harmful content.” He has announced his plan to ban new Facebook ads in the week prior to Election Day, which means outrageous last-minute claims can’t be refuted, and he will be limiting forwarding of “rumors” that might go viral. Most importantly, Facebook will be censoring any posts after the polls are closed claiming that Trump has won, “preparing” voters to wait while all the “mail-in” ballots are counted.

Google will continue to skew search results, YouTube will continue to censor videos, and Twitter will continue to delete tweets and shadow ban conservatives. Their goal is to drag Joe Biden across the finish line by encouraging liberal votes, discouraging conservative votes, swaying undecided voters with misinformation, and legitimizing fraudulent mail-in vote results.

Their goal is to support the AOC, Black Lives Matter, globalist agenda of gaining control of the United States — permanently. Once they are in power, the Democrats have announced their plans to keep control forever. In a nutshell, they plan to end the Senate filibuster, pack the Supreme Court with extra liberal judges, add four liberal members to the Senate by giving statehood to Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico, legalize all aliens and give them the right to vote, and permanently end fair elections by mandating mail-in voting with zero security safeguards.

Here is the Democrat endgame. On November 3, Trump will win in a landslide, but as the mail-in votes are tallied, extra votes will be “found” in swing states, tipping the election to Biden. Trump will cry foul and Democrats will muzzle him by closing his Twitter account and presenting only the Democrat talking points on mainstream media. Amidst Portland- and Seattle-style riots in Washington, DC, and throughout the rest of the country, as January 20 approaches, they will try to have him removed from the White House.

Anyone who disagrees will have their accounts deleted and their gmail accounts will be closed.
