(Tea Party PAC) – Big Tech companies like Facebook and Twitter have proven time and time again that they are working in league with progressives at all levels of the movement, whether in government or other places of influence, to silence the voices of the conservative movement wherever it’s possible.
This is why you see the attempts by these social media companies to try and control the kind of content that is posted on their sites. Normally, since these folks are privately owned, this wouldn’t be a big deal. They have the right to allow or not allow whatever they want. However, these companies tend to behave more like news publishers, which means they are beholden to the First Amendment, which means no silencing folks for sharing opinions that don’t line up with their own personally held beliefs.
Well, Twitter recently slapped President Trump with a fact-check of his tweets. One thing’s for sure. They didn’t expect him to retaliate so hard against them for it. The president puts them in their place with unrestrained brutality. It’s well deserved.
Here’s more from The Daily Wire:
On Tuesday night, President Trump slammed Twitter for fact-checking his tweets, which they had begun doing earlier Tuesday, starting with two of Trump’s tweets about mail-in-voting. In his response, Trump accused Twitter of “interfering in the 2020 presidential election” and “stifling free speech,” actions he vowed that he “will not allow.”
“[Twitter] is now interfering in the 2020 Presidential Election,” the president tweeted. “They are saying my statement on Mail-In Ballots, which will lead to massive corruption and fraud, is incorrect, based on fact-checking by Fake News CNN and the Amazon Washington Post. Twitter is completely stifling FREE SPEECH, and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!”

On Tuesday, Twitter placed a warning under two of Trump’s tweets in which he slammed the use of mail-in ballots. The warnings read, “Get the facts about mail-in ballots” with a link to a site that said Trump’s facts were wrong as posited by “CNN, Washington Post and others.”
The fact-checked Trump tweets read: “There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent. Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed. The Governor of California is sending Ballots to millions of people, anyone living in the state, no matter who they are or how they got there, will get one. That will be followed up with professionals telling all of these people, many of whom have never even thought of voting before, how, and for whom, to vote. This will be a Rigged Election. No way!”

Here’s the real kicker. If you click on the warning posted by Twitter, you’re sent to a website on the social media platform that reads:
“On Tuesday, President Trump made a series of claims about potential voter fraud after California Governor Gavin Newsom announced an effort to expand mail-in voting in California during the COVID-19 pandemic. These claims are unsubstantiated, according to CNN, Washington Post and others. Experts say mail-in ballots are very rarely linked to voter fraud.”
Clearly, Twitter is allowing their liberal bias to show. Especially since they are doing their best to paint Trump up as some sort of misinformed imbecile. We all know that a great many dangers could result if the election is conducted by vote-by-mail. I’ll take my chances getting COVID-19 than giving up my freedom and allowing the election of a Democratic president who will finish the destruction of my liberties started by Barack Obama.
The site continues: “Trump falsely claimed that mail-in ballots would lead to ‘a Rigged Election.’ However, fact-checkers say there is no evidence that mail-in ballots are linked to voter fraud. Trump falsely claimed that California will send mail-in ballots to ‘anyone living in the state, no matter who they are or how they got there.’ In fact, only registered voters will receive ballots. Though Trump targeted California, mail-in ballots are already used in some states, including Oregon, Utah and Nebraska.”
Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale ripped Twitter for fact-checking the president, asserting, “We always knew that Silicon Valley would pull out all the stops to obstruct and interfere with President Trump getting his message through to voters. Partnering with the biased fake news media ‘fact checkers’ is only a smoke screen Twitter is using to try to lend their obvious political tactics some false credibility. There are many reasons the Trump campaign pulled all our advertising from Twitter months ago, and their clear political bias is one of them.”
Want to know who is really and truly guilty of collusion in the election? It isn’t Trump. It’s the social media giants who have far more power and control over the flow of information than they should be allowed to have. Influencers and celebrities, in bed with progressive politicians, are serving as propagandists to help the American people swallow the pill of their agenda.
The modern day celebrities are treated as gods and when you look at how big their platform and follower lists are, it’s clear they have a lot of dedicated disciples. Individuals like this will do whatever they need to do in order to appease their “gods.” Something needs to be done to assure the truth is allowed to have just as much of a presence as the voices of those who are out to destroy our country.
