Today was the day Joe Biden was sworn into office as a faux president of the United States. Of course all sane and rational thinking people who have been paying attention the last two months know beyond a shadow of a doubt that this election was stolen and a coup d’etat was executed on Americans. The deep state got even deeper as the Supreme Court of the United States jumped in and assisted the swamp.
There are many fronts that affected the perceived 2020 election result including Democrats unconstitutionally changing the election laws in certain states to favor their party; the use of voting machines programmed to manipulate the vote count; Democrat personnel working the voting centers manipulating the vote tallies; US courts unwilling to consider evidence of obvious fraud; and powerful biased companies that set the tables to suppress information voters should have been able to access.
An election can be manipulated by companies and conglomerates that are in the business of information collection by altering the algorithms that drive, or seek to drive, web traffic. By having some amount of, or even total, control over what millions of undecided voters view online is a massive advantage to the party they’re biased toward, in this case the Democrat party.
For example, Google has been exposed for having a bias and manipulating data in the 2016 election. Google is a large company with multiple divisions, from search engine and information dissemination to Google Earth to Google Docs, it goes on and on. Google definitely enhances people’s online experiences. But what many people also use it for is to manage their social media pages for their businesses and organizations.
Social media is obviously huge for companies and Google is so widely used it’s hard to avoid using their services. Almost everyone uses Google in one form or another. But when a conservative person wants to take advantage of Google business, as anyone would because it’s a useful tool for small businesses, what impact does this have on conservatives, since Google is so biased?
The fact that search results favor the left and disadvantage the right makes it ethically and morally unfair.
This is exactly what we saw in the 2020 election with Twitter and Facebook. Both companies deliberately suppressed stories that favored President Trump and hurt Joe Biden. When the New York Post tweeted a story exposing Hunter Biden’s crimes and misdeeds, the social media giant Twitter was quick to take it down and censor free speech. Facebook and Twitter attach labels to posts they disagree with which state something to the effect of “our fact checkers found this post (or article) to be in dispute or contain disinformation.”
After the election a study by the Media Research Center found that around 17% of those who had not heard about the Hunter Biden story said they would not have voted for Joe Biden had they known.
This presents another problem. Aside from Twitter and Facebook censoring major stories, why are so many people disengaged from politics and reality? There could be multiple reasons.
One might be that many people are just lazy and can’t be bothered by it. Many simply just don’t think for themselves but rather allow others and the media to decide for them. Or it could be that Republicans have a messaging problem.
However, it could also be that Republicans are unable to get their message out because social media has hijacked the messaging vehicles by suppressing stories. Then again, many people are legitimately frightened of the repercussions they’ll experience if they show any support for anyone on the right.
Does the right really have a messaging problem or is the left so organized and invested in keeping people from hearing and reading the truth, truth which could swing the vote a certain way? I believe it’s a little of the former and a lot of the latter.
