Okay, so it wasn’t a bar, it was John Stossel’s ReasonTV studio. But when he had conservative show host Glenn Beck on to discuss social media censorship, I’ll admit I expected some fireworks. What ended up happening was far more enjoyable as both agreed there’s a problem and government isn’t the solution.
There we go. End of video. It’s settled.
Well, there’s a bit more than that, but the two firebrands for their respective political philosophies both understood the barrier for exposure is much higher for the freedom-loving right than for those who espouse social justice violence, such as the hatred spread and acted upon by groups like Antifa. In an effort to fight “hate speech,” tech giants like Facebook, Twitter, Apple, and Google have established a double-standard in which “hate speech” rules apply loosely to the political left even in blatant instances while the hammer is dropped instantly on the political left when there’s even a hint of it.
We’ve experienced it for ourselves multiple times, most recently when an article description called for criminal illegal immigrants to be deported back to their nations of origin. We weren’t calling for immigrants to be “sent home” or even for all illegal immigrants to be. We were specifically calling out violent criminal illegal aliens, but that was too much for a particularly huge social media “platform” to accept. Our accounts have been shadowbanned. One account was fully banned. And, to our chagrin, we’ve learned the wrong lesson from it. We’re careful with what we post, now. Such things should not be, especially when we’re pushing truth, not hatred.
In this video, John Stossel and Glenn Beck discuss the problems so many right-leaning Americans are experiencing on big tech platforms. Behind the guise of fighting “hate speech,” they’re actually quashing ideas that oppose their own progressive worldviews.
