Ever since they lost their election in 2016 as unofficial digital campaign proxies for Hillary Clinton, many top companies in Silicon Valley and throughout the world of tech have been trying to fight what they consider to be “fake news.” Even though the phrase was made popular by President Trump, the left has commandeered the phrase and tried to make it include any reports or organizations that are not adamantly opposed to the President and his agenda.
That’s not their official stance, but the evidence has been clear for years, even before the election. Conservatives and Christians get censored, banned, and quashed much more often than leftists. The double standard is blatant. The results have been chilling, especially when we consider how much data these companies have.
But they weren’t the first to spin reality for the sake of political expediency as well as revenue. The Southern Poverty Law Center has made millions off of promoting the false narrative that they’re the arbiters of hatred, the people who determine what organizations qualify as hate groups. They tend to put many churches and conservative groups on their lists, but they neglect to label groups like Antifa or Black Lives Matter as such.
Of course, it’s conspicuous that their fundraising efforts target leftists. It wouldn’t behoove them to place organizations made up of progressives on their list, then ask for money from those who support those groups.
Jarrett Stepman from The Daily Signal discussed how conservative groups are fighting back by calling on tech giants to abandon the SPLC on grounds of their clear bias. We need to get the word out about this.
The irony of all ironies in the fact that the Southern Poverty Law Center, known for “exposing” conservative and Christian organizations as hate groups, is actually one of the most powerful hate groups in the country. Silicon Valley needs to open its eyes if it wants to retain the sliver of credibility it has left.
