Remember How They Suppressed Hunter’s Laptop Story? Twitter Announces Midterms Crackdown On “Misleading” Election Claims

Remember How They Suppressed Hunter’s Laptop Story? Twitter Announces Midterms Crackdown On “Misleading” Election Claims

“…we’ll take action against misleading claims about the voting process, misleading content intended to intimidate or dissuade people from participating in the election, or misleading claims that may undermine public confidence in elections outcomes.”

Like most other popular social media sites, the Powers That Be at Twitter possess grossly inflated opinions of themselves, especially as it relates to what they feel is their supposed “duty” to keep their platform as free from so-called “disinformation” as they possibly can, most notably in election years.

“Twitter plays a critical role in empowering democratic conversations, facilitating meaningful political debate, and providing information on civic participation – not only in the US, but around the world. People deserve to trust the election conversations and content they encounter on Twitter,” the company proclaimed Thursday.

In reality, what they’re doing behind the scenes when they think no one is paying attention is acting as information gatekeepers for Democrats by way of penalizing conservative accounts for WrongThink and for daring to publish or promote unflattering stories and/or asking uncomfortable questions about candidates for higher office along with other high-profile public figures who have the potential to influence public policy.

One of the more notorious examples of this tactic in action was in their deliberate suppression of the New York Post’s blockbuster Hunter Biden laptop emails story in October 2020, just a few weeks out from the presidential election. Not only did they lock down the Post’s main Twitter account for about two weeks, but they also suppressed the story when other Twitter users attempted to share it, something Facebook admitted to doing as well.

Here we are nearly two years later, and Twitter has officially announced yet again in so many words that they are answering Joe Biden’s “special appeal” from January and are, in a nutshell, getting ready to start trying to stack the deck against Republicans ahead of the 2022 midterm elections:

What does it mean? They explained in a follow-up tweet:

Hmm. Oh really? Well, if that’s the case, here are a few accounts they can go ahead and get started on:

They should monitor Joe Biden’s, too:

And Hillary Clinton’s:

And Stacey Abrams’:

And Terry McAuliffe:

And every single other Democrat denying election results in this 10-minute video:

I could go on and on, but I think the point has been made.

If Twitter truly were interested in preventing the deliberate spread of information from undermining our elections, their “enforcement” wouldn’t be so one-sided. But it is because Twitter – just like Facebook – is run by woke leftists who do things ostensibly in the interests of the “greater good” (a.k.a. electing Democrats) takes precedence over doing the right thing, which involves letting all sides try to make their case and then letting the chips fall where they may come election time.

And millions upon millions will still slobber all over Twitter, Elon Musk can’t/won’t do anything, Congress refuses to do anything, the evil goes unpunished.

Maybe I need to become a leftist. As long as you toe the line you can get away with anything. Paradise on earth, right?

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? Who guards the guards? More importantly, who guards the self appointed guards?

This includes the fake fact checkers.

Funny how they are all lefties…. I think it is a form of their infamous projection.

It worked for them last time, they got their pedophile across the finish line. Why wouldn’t they do it again?

There is a Marsh v Alabama solution to this problem.

B”H” we saw the effects of the ‘fortified democracy’ measures in 2020

Narrow but focused censorship can have huge results and flip elections
See post #Election2020 survey
1750 actual JB voters in 7 swing states
“45% of voters in key, swing states told MRC poll that they weren’t aware of the Hunter Biden story, & that almost 10 % would have changed their vote if they had known”

Information suppression is a v powerful tool wielded by Twitter and other state media https://web.archive.org/web/20210716190815/https://twitter.com/daniel_bilar/status/1377722543159787522

Exactly as predicted.

They faced absolutely zero consequences for doing is last time, and there is absolutely zero reason for them to think the RINOs under Bitch McConnell will ever do a thing to them.

So why WOULDN’T they cheat and censor when they pay no penalty for doing so?

Twitter was a tool to say something, Not everything. Just like selfies and emoticons, completely overdone by insecure people seeking validations. Boy are we in trouble if the manipulation of the system cannot be overcome.

I’m torn between amusement that big tech is doing so quite openly and wondering if we shouldn’t be a bit worried that they are doing so even after the hell storm of suppressing the Hunter laptop.

    Why wouldn’t they? What penalty have they faced?

    What hell storm? Nothing happened. Nothing. Not a single person in power did a single thing.

      CommoChief in reply to Dathurtz. | August 12, 2022 at 11:20 am

      The hell storm among those of us on the right and increasingly independents who had confirmed in real time the degree of manipulation and suppression of non regime approved thought.

      Some of us had already figured this out, others were still in the ‘we should trust until proven otherwise’ phase. Now polling indicates that majorities of all voters r, d and i no longer trust our institutions, traditional media or social media.

      The people in power; Congress, can be turned out and replaced if the voters feel strongly enough. We shall see if anyone, including voters, are willing to make the necessary changes or if it is no more than sky screaming.

    What hell storm exactly they defeated the story and enraged conservatives like us from their perspective two birds one stone.

    Censorship works unfortunately.

Censorship is so much easier when your only concern is for one side.

Another inter-bot war. Could be a circuit breaker this time.

According to Twitter, then, only an election given to a democrat candidate is legitimate. Any dissention or arguement or evidence to the contrary is Mis- or dis- information. Got it.

Will Truth Social be the only place to get the truth?

Apparently Hunter realized just last week that he had misplaced a FOURTH laptop…
