MRC Senior Fellow Allen West recently made a video blog that explains how the left is controlling all of the major social media platforms to censor conservative voices, ultimately silencing Republicans first and second amendment rights reports MRC TV.
West claims it’s important to be aware of this bias against conservatives because we cannot exist in a constitutional republic that denies us the First Amendment right to freedom of speech. All you have to look at is this past week when Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg took the stand in front of the Senate and answered questions about Facebook possibly silencing conservative voices on his platform.
While the hearing was mostly to discuss the recent breach in security measures for users personal data on the site, questions about Facebook’s algorithm and the fact that multiple conservative voices have been shut down by Facebook were brought up as well by Republican senators.
Diamond & Silk are a common example that Sen. Ted Cruz and many other Republicans brought up during the hearing as a victim of Facebook’s censorship. West wants to ask the question do we really have freedom of speech in America if the left is controlling all of the major social media outlets that are a big first amendment platform for people today.
West wants to know who is making these decisions at Facebook and wants to know how out of 20,000 people working at looking over the content, how can they still make the mistake of silencing two African-American women who are simply expressing their conservative view on politics.
“The left is also after our Second Amendment right which enables us to be citizens and not subjects,” West says.”If we lose these first two rights, our First and Second Amendment rights as constitutional conservatives, then what is the fate of the United States of America?”
West makes a good point by pointing out that it is dangerous for all of these liberal moguls to have a monopoly over all social media platforms and it is dangerous to allow this censorship of conservative voices to keep happening in the social media world.
