Everyone knows by now that big tech companies are engaged in complete censoring of conservative voices. Whether it’s demonetizing gun channels on YouTube or banning commentators from social media platforms, the campaign to enforce leftist orthodoxy continues apace. The latest example of that censorship comes from Google, which is attempting to silence Project Veritas.
Project Veritas got undercover video of Google executive Jen Gennai admitting that Google is working to prevent another Trump victory in 2020. According to Gennai, “We all got screwed over in 2016, again it wasn’t just us, it was, the people got screwed over, the news media got screwed over, like, everybody got screwed over so we’ve rapidly been like, what happened there and how do we prevent it from happening again.” She went on to talk about the steps Google is taking to ensure that another Trump-type victory doesn’t happen again.
Project Veritas broke the story by posting it to its YouTube page. Google wasn’t too happy about its shenanigans being exposed, so it decided to pull the video. Project Veritas responded by posting the video to Vimeo and placing it on its website. But despite the clear censorship on the part of Google, no one in the mainstream media has reported on it.
It should be abundantly clear that social media and technology companies are pulling out all the stops to silence conservatives ahead of 2020. From manipulating their search algorithms to outright censorship, nothing is off the table. That will make it incredibly difficult for conservatives to make their voices heard in the future. It also means that conservatives need to work even harder to fight against Big Tech’s censorship.
Merely leaving social media platforms isn’t good enough, that’s just ceding the battleground to the left. Fighting tooth and nail, tackling censorship head on, and creating alternative platforms to allow conservatives to make their voices heard are the only ways that conservatives will be able to succeed.
