After Years Of Silencing Conservatives, Trump’s DOJ Drops The Hammer

Liberals have been destroying freedom of speech. But now Trump’s Department of Justice has taken real action.

If you’re on social media, you know the truth:

Platforms like Facebook and Twitter, which are supposed to be all about “free speech,” have been silencing conservative viewpoints for years.

Now, though, patriots are starting to push back.

One of the most talked about moments during the Congressional hearing with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was conservative reporter Laura Loomer’s outburst.

She stood up at the back of the room and shouted:

“Please help us, Mr. President, before it is too late, because Jack Dorsey is trying to influence the election, to sway the election, so that Democrats can steal the election!

That is why he is censoring and shadow-banning conservatives!”

Most observers didn’t hear Loomer’s protest, because Rep. Billy Long of Missouri broke out into an auctioneer chant to drown her out.

The hilarious exchange has since gone viral.

Nobody wanted to listen to Loomis then, but now Donald Trump’s Department of Justice has finally decided to make its move.

From IJR:

“The Justice Department said on Wednesday it has convened a meeting with state attorneys general to discuss concerns that social media platforms were ‘intentionally stifling the free exchange of ideas.’

In a hearing on Wednesday, Representative Greg Walden, chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, said Twitter had made ‘mistakes’ that, he said, minimized Republicans’ presence on the social media site.

‘Multiple members of Congress and the chairwoman of the Republican Party have seen their Twitter presences temporarily minimized in recent months, due to what you have claimed was a mistake in the algorithm,’ he said.”

Indeed, Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and Donald Trump Jr.’s spokesperson were among those being de-emphasized in search results on Twitter.

The website claimed it does not “shadow ban” conservatives, but Twitter undoubtedly limits visibility in search results for particular accounts.

Trump vowed to investigate these underhanded practices back in July, promising Republicans that he would, “look into this discriminatory and illegal practice at once!”

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey denied the president’s claims during his hearing, stating that there is no bias on his website.

We don’t consider political viewpoints, perspectives, or party affiliation in any of our policies or enforcement decisions. Period. Impartiality is our guiding principle,” Dorsey said.

But of course, that’s just PR speak. They’re guilty of censoring right-wing viewpoints, same as Facebook.

You’ve seen countless examples of this, haven’t you?

And don’t you think it’s high time they were punished for running their liberal agenda and destroying free speech?
