Twitter and Google Shut Down Conservative Voices!
Alex Salvi: Page Six now. Twitter stirs controversy yet again or on the issue of censorship. The social media giant first locked the account after posting footage of protesters outside of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's home yelling profanities and threats at the lawmaker. Well, the company said the post violated its policy against its threats. Keep in mind that Lewis Farrakhan still has an account and you can still find Tucker Carlson's home address on the Web site. It was posted by members of the violent group Antifa who literally walked up to his door in the middle of the night threatening him and his family. Joining me now, the founder of the American Truth Project and Daily Ledger contributor, Barry Nussbaum. So Barry, looking at the situation as a whole, do you think that this is demonstrative of social media bias against conservatives?
Barry Nussbaum: It's way more than that, Alex. Google may be the most powerful company on the Internet, making it the most powerful company in the world because of the tremendous amount of information flow going through their servers every second of every day. And when they control the flow and they control what you see through the analytics that are invisible, they have the power to sway millions. As you rightly pointed out, hate-mongers like Lewis Farrakhan, like Hamas, like Islamic Jihad, like CAIR, like Antifa are on Twitter and broadcasting vile viciousness every day. Mitch McConnell, who is the most powerful senator in the Congress, couldn't even post something saying, "Hey, leave me alone they're threatening me in my own home." Is that bias? Oh, absolutely, 100 percent without any fear of contradiction. It's overwhelming. It's gross and honest to goodness it has to stop.
Alex Salvi: Yeah, in fact, people will say that you and I are conspiracy theorist for saying this. A lot of people in the mainstream media say, "There is no such thing as media bias." But in my opinion, that's because they don't necessarily know what the argument is. I mean, these companies are inherently run by people who are left-leaning. And the rules, therefore, are typed up, and the very language is left-leaning. Yeah. I mean, it's best shown in the abortion and transgender type debates where even if conservatives say a certain type of comments, it may be of good intention, but you might get banned for it. So what do conservatives do to really combat this moving forward?
Barry Nussbaum: Oh, my gosh. That is the million-dollar question. Ted Cruz is holding hearings right now in the Senate, trying to figure out that exact question, Alex. Because as was pointed out in the hearings over the last couple days, an expert who was brought before the Senate subcommittee said, I'm a lifelong Democrat. I gave money to Hillary Clinton. I voted for Hillary Clinton. And I'm here to testify that I believe Google changed millions of minds voting in the 2016 election and in the 2020 election may be able to change as many as 10 million votes to the progressive liberal agenda of the people that run the company. And that goes for Twitter. It goes for YouTube, The second most popular on the Internet. It goes for Google that controls a flow of information. It goes for Facebook, Instagram, and so on. And the scary part, Alex, is the analytics are invisible, so nobody knows what is being written in. So when people are searching, they might get Trump and three hundred articles how he is such a demonstrative, white supremacist racist. And if you Google Biden, it might give you an equal number of articles about how great he is and how he should be president. That's how they change their minds. The question is, and I don't know the answer, what are we going to do about it? I think this is a prime example of a monopoly controlling too much power in this case, the vote. It's not the Russians. It's the people at the top, at the media giants that control what people see, what they read, and therefore how they think. Wow, is that scary?
Alex Salvi: It is scary. So, I mean, this all comes down to a battle of information. And actually to his credit, too you mentioned Ted Cruz. I just want to point out Senator Josh Hawley from Missouri who has also been on the front lines in this effort. He's put legislation forward as well. So it's a matter of whether or not that's actually ever taken up. Barry, thank you very much.
