For the past several years, conservatives have accused Google, Facebook and Twitter of being overly biased in favor of America-hating Democrats.
The big three tech giants have been systematically trying to silence conservatives by violating their First Amendment rights.
Recently, Facebook shut down 900 pages and accounts, most of which were conservatives and they did it only a month before the all-important midterm elections.
Conservatives have been trying to get the attention of Congress and President Trump, asking them to take action to stop the constitutional abuses of the tech giants.
It’s now been disclosed that employees of Facebook, Google and Twitter have donated $2.4 million to political campaigns, of which only $176,000 (8%) went to Republicans.
Fox News – President Trump has repeatedly called out Google, Facebook and Twitter for liberal bias. Two weeks until the midterms, it would appear he may have had a point.
Employees of the tech giants have given a total of $2.4 million to House and Senate candidates, according to Federal Election Commission filings. Of that, only $176,000 – just 8 percent – went to Republicans.
By comparison, in the last midterms in 2014, Google, Facebook and Twitter workers gave a total of $838,000 to congressional candidates, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. Of that, $679,000 went to Democrats and $259,000 went to Republicans.
In July, President Trump accused Twitter of “shadow banning” prominent Republicans. “Not good,” he tweeted. He also accused Google in a series of tweets in August of playing up negative articles about him in search results…
The tech giants are using bogus regulations to shut down and silence conservatives.
They claim that many posts are either fake news or offensive, but then it’s the same employees that are donating to the campaigns of Democrats who are making these determinations.
We need every one of you to contact your Senator and Representative at the state and federal level and demand they take action to stop Google, Facebook and Twitter from continued violations of the First Amendment rights of conservatives.
Without urgent action, the only people left who will be allowed to post will be American-hating Democrats.
