The weirdo tech gazillionaires in Silicon Valley have established themselves as a new de facto government in the United States. You may disagree with that assessment, but if you do, think carefully about what’s happening in America right now.
More than 70,000 Twitter users have had their accounts shut down since last Friday, for the crime of sharing QAnon memes and theories. The President of the United States has been permanently kicked off of Twitter. Thousands of additional users, all Trump supporters, have had their accounts shut off or locked. Many more are added to Twitter’s blacklist every single day, if they talk about or question the results of the 2020 election.
Facebook has kicked the president off its platform – permanently. Many thousands of additional users are locked out of their accounts for “violating community standards” – which is a term that apparently means they were talking about the illegitimacy of the 2020 election.
Amazon, Apple and Google colluded last week to shut down a relatively new social media channel called Parler, over its refusal to enact draconian speech control measures – measures that would have prevented people from discussing the 2020 election’s results. The Trump campaign has been blocked by Salesforce, so it can no longer send emails to its millions of supporters.
Marriott hotels, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Commerce Bank, CitiBank and JP Morgan Chase have all announced that they will no longer donate funds to the 138 House Republicans and eight Senate Republicans who challenged the results of the 2020 election. Many more companies are planning to follow suit.
Airlines are preventing Trump supporters from boarding flights – especially Trump supporters who traveled to Washington, DC last week in order to ask for an audit of the 2020 election. The IRS has announced that it will begin a massive uptick in the number of audits of small businesses and independent contractors in 2021.
This list is by no means exhaustive, a whole bunch of other banks and companies are now censoring Trump supporters, the President himself, his family members and the Trump campaign. Glenn Beck has the latest.
