Big Tech Censors GOP Lawmakers Over Democrats by Astonishing Rate – RedState

On this episode of “Try to Control Your Shock and Amazement”…

Big Tech’s censorship, restriction, and finally a “lifetime” ban of President Donald Trump was an unprecedented step into censorship infamy — on par with the heady days of TASS and the Cold War with the Soviet Union. But it wasn’t just Trump, according to a new Media Research Center study.

As NewsBusters reported, Facebook and other social media platforms have been censoring Republican lawmakers at a staggering 54 to 1 rate, in comparison with congressional Democrats. Are you shocked? I’m not.

Here’s more, via NewsBusters:

This censorship targeted Republicans in the House as well as the Senate. It was particularly prevalent for stories related to COVID-19 and the 2020 election. Twitter highlighted this point by censoring Rep. Thomas Massie (R.KY) in a tweet regarding natural immunity and vaccine mandates.

These results were based on analysis by the MRC’s database team of the last two congressional delegations.

YouTube removed the content of Senators Ron Johnson (R. WI) and Rand Paul(R. KY), and suspended their respective accounts.

COVID-19 also served as the excuse by this video site for its restrictions.

In addition, the Federalist reported on Monday that Sen. Johnson’s YouTube account was suspended for a week, and the video — a speech Johnson gave about “bureaucrats in the Trump and Biden administrations […] ‘not only ignoring but working against robust research [on] the use of cheap, generic drugs to be repurposed for early treatment of COVID’” — was deleted.

Johnson was correct. As has been the case with angry parents in droves showing up at school board meetings to protest the racist indoctrination of so-called “Critical Race Theory,” it is past time for every concerned American to actively fight against censorship of conservative content.

Johnson pointed out that Johnson held two hearings regarding early treatment of COVID-19. He said one of the people testifying at one of the hearings talked about “the four pillars of pandemic response,” those being [the]Early treatment and hospitalization are key to preventing the spread of this virus.

Johnson stated in the deleted video:

“It always baffled me that there was such a concerted effort to deny the American public the type of robust exploration research into early treatment early in this pandemic. Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine are both available. [are] incredibly safe drugs.”

Federalist pointed out that these drugs are on the market since decades. They have also been recommended for many uses such as Lupus or scabies. However, the National Institutes of Health has recommended against the use of Hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19. This recommendation comes after a study that found it didn’t cause any harm, but not provided benefits. NIH is currently neutral on the use of ivermectin for COVID-19, a shift from a previous recommendation against its use.

So, why was Johnson’s YouTube video deleted? Because it goes against Biden and the liberal media’s vaccination narrative.

In Rand Paul’s case, the Kentucky senator posted a video of an interview he did with Newsmax where he criticized the contradictions pushed by the Keebler Elf —  the Democrat Party’s COVID mascot. Chief medical advisor of the president was Dr. Anthony Fauci. Newsbusters noted that YouTube pulled it down. Paul then created a response video, which YouTube not only took down — it suspended his account for seven days.

Have I mentioned that YouTube is owned by Google?

And I should add, last weekend, in Noted Climatologist Sundar Pichai’s Google to ‘Crack Down’ on ‘False Climate Change Claims’:

Sundar Pichai, chief executive officer of Alphabet Inc. and its subsidiary Google, is again using his playground to “crack down” on digital ads promoting “false climate change claims” — particularly accounts being used to make money from “such content,” hoping to limit revenue for climate “change deniers” and stop “the spread of misinformation on its platforms.”

Nice. YouTube, Google, Sundar Pichai and Google are equally qualified censors for conservative content.

NewsBusters cites a number of examples that are blatantly hypocritical:

Facebook and Twitter used their censorship mechanisms at least 30 separate times against Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), including five Twitter suspensions and the flagging of at least 24 tweets with some type of warning label.

Only one Democrat member from the last two U.S. congressional delegations was censored. Facebook briefly removed a post by Rep. Marie Newman (D-IL) about the transgender flag outside her office. “Facebook took down our video of me putting up the Transgender flag outside my office and labeled it ‘hate speech,’” she tweeted.

That didn’t last long. Andy Stone, Facebook’s communications director, was a former spokesman for the Democratic Party. He quickly apologized. He tweeted in response: “Congresswoman, this plainly should not have happened. We’ve restored this content and you have our sincere apologies.”

Author, lawyer and candidate for U.S. Senate J.D. Vance (R) was just one example. After his book, he became an iconic conservative figure. Hillbilly Elegy sold millions of copies. Vance experienced Big Tech’s wrath firsthand when Twitter suspended his campaign’s press account:

“No warning. There was no explanation about the rules that I am alleged to have violated. But this is what happens when we allow five companies to control what we’re allowed to say,” [Vance]Twitter

Meanwhile, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, AOC, CNN, MSNBC, et al. Continue to Their lies “forget” to tell the truth on a regular basis — and I’ll be damned if Sundar Pichai, Jack Dorsey, and Mark Zuckerberg don’t miss those “forgetful moments” every time.
