(NewsBreakDaily.org) – Social media platforms like YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook have become the way many — if not most — Americans communicate with each other. Sadly, it’s also what they seem to rely on for information to build their beliefs. However, the companies behind these sites appear to be removing material that doesn’t align with the Progressive Liberal Agenda.
A prime example is President Donald Trump’s #Obamagate. He tweeted and started a trend on Twitter after documents came to light showing Obama’s part in the machinations to entrap Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. The hashtag spent hours in the top 10 of Twitter’s “trending” list. That is until the company caught wind of it and scrubbed it. The hashtag then abruptly dropped from number five to zero.
The experiences of Robert Bluey, VP of Communications for the Heritage Foundation, detail their dealings with these companies. In one case “Facebook removed a…video of a pediatrician warning about the dangers of puberty blockers for children,” which would be anathema to transgender activists.
The second instance was when one of their employees was suspended from Twitter for using a “misgendering” word. In both cases, the public applied enough pressure to get the situations resolved with an “apology.”
History has proven people who want to create a system of oppressive government work to control the flow of information in education systems and public newsfeeds. Adolf Hitler did it, as did Joseph Stalin, and Chairman Mao Zedong.
Let us hope America doesn’t have to learn that lesson the hard way.
