For the past four years, conservatives have been in a constant battle with big tech to stop the censorship of conservative voices.
Big names have had their content demonetized on Facebook, shadow banned on TikTok and Instagram, and restricted on Twitter.
Influencers of all notoriety levels have had years of content and hard work deleted with no notice.
It seems that this past year, an election year has been the worst of the leftist control with big tech.
This past Friday, only days away from the election, Instagram decided to follow through with a massive purge of conservative accounts, big and small.
What’s even crazier is how hardly any reporting has taken place on the total wiping of hundreds of accounts.
If this were an attack on those with liberal ideals, you would have seen it plastered on every news headline.
This purge came with no warning and targeted accounts with all different following sizes from 600 followers to over 100k followers. No one was safe from the purge.
Any accounts that don’t fit the left’s ideals or viewpoints become targets in a string of censorship attacks.
This targeting of conservative voices has hindered the momentum vocally.
Many have addressed their concerns and have become cautious when posting about President Trump or their right-leaning political beliefs.
President Trump tweeted directly at Facebook on Sunday to put an NJ Women for Trump page back up that had been banned on the social media platform as well.
What’s even more absurd is that on Wednesday, two days before the purge, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Google’s Sundar Pichai, and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey appeared before the Senate Commerce Committee to discuss censorship and Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act.
If Democratic candidate Joe Biden wins the election, the strict censorship we’ve seen recently is only a preview of what’s to come.
When will enough be enough, where the American people can express their opinions and beliefs without fear of their hard work getting shut down because they go against the grain. Time will tell just how far they will go before they start to cross the line on infringement of the first amendment.
