The Media is Actively Running the Social Media Purge of Conservatives
The media had orchestrated the false claims of Russian Facebook election interference that began the purge of speech when President Trump won. The media's election deniers then pivoted to claims of fake news, later renamed disinformation when President Trump adopted the term, that posed a threat to democracy.
Now the media is actively running the social media purge of conservatives.
After the coordinated Big Tech speech cartel takedown of Parler, the media has pushed stories about Zello, Signal, and Telegram, claiming that these apps now host conservatives, and need to purge.
Considering what Apple, Google, and Amazon did to Parler, there's every reason for the companies in question to take that threat seriously.
Except that Telegram and Signal are built around privacy. The media wasn't objecting to the widespread use of Telegram by Islamic terrorists. Much like Apple had a very different policy on unlocking the iPhone of the San Bernardino terrorists than it did on purging Trump supporters after the election.
The Forbes hit piece on Telegram and Signal notes that the latter was used by BLM rioters. Not a problem. It's only a problem when conservatives use it.
What that really says, without having the honesty to say it, is that the lefty media's goal is to eliminate open platforms and replace them with closed platforms that protect and promote abusive behavior by lefties, while cracking down on any conservative speech.
The media is at war with the First Amendment. It's at war with the internet. It's at war with freedom.
