White House Asks Users To Report Social Media Suppression

White House Asks Users To Report Social Media Suppression

Last week, the White House unveiled a new online tool for users to report wrongful suppression of their views by social media companies. However, on May 15 the Typeform questionnaire was no longer accepting new responses.

When it was running, the White House tool’s web page encouraged people to speak out against media muzzling:

“No matter your views, if you suspect political bias caused such an action to be taken against you, share your story with President Trump.”

The White House’s official Twitter account posted on May 15:

“The Trump Administration is fighting for free speech online. No matter your views, if you suspect political bias has caused you to be censored or silenced online, we want to hear about it!”

The Typeform site asked users to upload screenshots and provide links of the content deemed offensive by the service provider. A text field lets respondents describe the enforcement actions taken against them. Checkboxes allowed users to select the platform where the suppression of the free exchange of thoughts and ideas occurred: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, or Other.

The federal complaint website still proclaims:

“SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS should advance FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Yet too many Americans have seen their accounts suspended, banned, or fraudulently reported for unclear ‘violations’ of user policies.”

The Typeform tool collected the respondent’s first and last names, zip code, phone number, and citizenship status. The form included an option to receive emailed newsletters from the president “so we can update you without relying on platforms like Facebook and Twitter.”

The social media bias reporting form’s lengthy User Agreement specified that “you understand this form is for information gathering only.”

In a few short hours, the White received “thousands of responses” from internet account-holders who have been sent to Facebook jail, had posts removed from Twitter, and videos yanked from YouTube – all in the name of preserving corporate-defined “community standards.”

A Twitter representative parroted the official position taken by companies with liberal leadership, denying any political bias:

“We enforce the Twitter Rules impartially for all users, regardless of their background or political affiliation. We are constantly working to improve our systems and will continue to be transparent in our efforts.”

Facebook, Twitter, Google, and YouTube all started sanitizing the internet for our protection years ago. First, they banned Alex Jones and his InfoWars alternative news networks, accusing him of broadcasting fake news.

They banned David Icke, master Truther. They banned Milo Yiannopoulos. They banned doctors speaking out against draconian COVID-19 response measures and anti-vaxers generally. They banned a history teacher who posted actual Nazi film as a teaching aid (then restored his account when a human intervened over the decision made by automated threat-flagging software).

On April 23, 2019, President Donald Trump met with Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey in the Oval Office to discuss the social media giant’s platform and the realm of social media generally. During that conversation, Trump allegedly spent much of the half-hour dialog talking about conservative backers lost to Twitter’s heavy-handed suppression of their online activities.

Trump’s son Don Jr tweeted in April:

“The purposeful & calculated silencing of conservatives on Facebook & the rest of the Big Tech monopoly men should terrify everyone.”

Incredibly, tech dominators such as Google, Twitter, and Facebook insist they are innocent of political bias and any wrongdoing, claiming there is no solid evidence other than individual horror stories to prove that liberal social media muzzling is targeting conservatives. Still, the facts speak for themselves.

Less than a year ago, I wrote about a Google insider, engineer Mike Wacker, who blew the whistle on his former employer’s corporate culture that promoted “outrage mobs” and “witch hunts” against all perceived enemies. Wacker warned:

“If left unchecked, these outrage mobs will hunt down any conservative, any Christian, and any independent free thinker at Google who does not bow down to their agenda.”

Wacker added that “once you control who belongs at Google, you can control what content belongs on Google.”

In a related article, I revealed that Google had instructed its software engineers to add special computer codes to create user blacklists. Programming software loaded with keywords thought to signal “forbidden” content has been embraced industry-wide:

“Facebook uses similar algorithms to ban their users which is why they have a dispute provision where human workers review content suppressed by a machine to see if the suppression of information does, in fact, violate their published Community Standards where no one is allowed to publish anything controversial, now encompassed by the blanket term ‘hate speech.'”

Talk show host Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report, the largest YouTube talk show about free speech, also spoke out against social media muzzling based on political bias:

“At some point, if a couple of us that have some influence don’t stand up, nobody will and then this whole game, this whole beautiful game about freedom on the internet, it will all be over before we know it.”

The Trump administration agrees that it’s time to investigate social media editorial bias. After all, Google executives stated they would do anything to prevent another GOP presidential win in 2020. Looks like they’re doing it.
