The social media tech giants — Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, Disqus — are all owned and operated by liberals/Democrats/Progressive, i.e., the Left. Although they are separate corporations, their similar political partisanship and ideology make them a virtual monopoly. When they each act to censor and stifle the American people’s freedom of speech in social and alternative media, their collective reach approaches totalitarian in scope.
The latest is Facebook‘s elimination, via shadow-banning, of 93% of traffic to several top conservative websites.
Note: Urban Dictionary defines shadowban: as “Banning a user from a web forum in such a way that the banned user is unaware of the ban. Usually takes the form of showing that user’s posts/profile/etc. only to that user; other users never see them. Considered underhanded chicken-shit behavior.”
Now, giving further evidence that they are a cabal, representatives from the biggest U.S. tech companies met secretly on Friday, August 24, 2018, to coordinate their strategy for the upcoming November midterm elections.
According to an email obtained by Buzzfeed, Facebook’s head of cybersecurity policy, Nathaniel Gleicher, invited employees from a dozen companies, including Google, Microsoft, and Snapchat, to gather in a private meeting last Friday at Twitter’s headquarters in downtown San Francisco to share their tactics in preparation for the 2018 midterm elections.
Gleicher wrote in his email:
As I’ve mentioned to several of you over the last few weeks, we have been looking to schedule a follow-on discussion to our industry conversation about information operations, election protection, and the work we are all doing to tackle these challenges.
Gleicher wrote that the private meeting has a three-part agenda:
- Each company presents the work they’ve been doing to counter information operations.
- A discussion period for problems each company faces.
- Talk about whether such a meeting should become a regular occurrence.
In May 2018, nine of those companies met at Facebook with two US government representatives, Department of Homeland Security Under Secretary Chris Krebs and Mike Burham from the FBI’s Foreign Influence Task Force, created in November.
Tech companies, Facebook and Twitter in particular, have faced intense scrutiny for how slowly they initially reacted to reports that foreign intelligence and affiliated operations used their platforms to manipulate users ahead of the 2016 election, leading to drops in user confidence and a threat of regulation from lawmakers.
