In the immortal words of Rep. Ted Cruz:
“Who the hell elected you?”
These words were in response to Twitter founder and C.E.O. Jack Dorsey’s continued censoring of conservatives on his social media outlet.
The gist is all the same though, different platform, same one-sided censorship policies.
Today’s big tech bad actor is Youtube, which is owned by Google.
Youtube recently announced that it was seeking to remove any videos which challenged the results of the 2020 election, calling them “misinformation”
As if, the executives at Google and Youtube somehow had a glass ball which endowed them with wisdom, and gave them the be all, end all monopoly on the truth.

The Red State Observer reported:
Big Tech has been coming for Conservatives and they really stepped up their actions to suppress anything that went against the liberal narrative right before the election. A perfect example of that was how Twitter suppressed the New York Post story about the Hunter and Joe Biden pay for play/influence peddling allegations. They even admitted they were trying to suppress the story and suspended the account of the New York Post, one of the oldest papers in the country.
It was very clear they were trying to influence the election against President Donald Trump and in favor of Joe Biden, and they did according to polls conducted after the election. Polls of Biden voters showed that many hadn’t heard the Hunter/Joe story the New York Post released and that had they heard of it, about 4% wouldn’t have voted for Biden. The amount of people would have more than made up the alleged difference in votes in the election.
But they haven’t stopped with the election. Social media like Twitter and Instagram have been going on a spree tagging a lot of posts by the President, and anything at all that alleges election fraud. Instagram even put a tag on President Donald Trump’s Pearl Harbor post that had nothing to do with the election.
The Gateway Pundit also added:
YouTube announced Wednesday it will take down videos questioning the integrity of the U.S. presidential election that millions of Americans, most notably President Trump, believe was stolen through numerous fraudulent actions, lawfare chicanery and computer manipulation.
YouTube says it already has been rigging search results and algorithms to hide “misleading” election videos, describing the censorship effort as, “Limiting the reach of borderline content and prominently surfacing authoritative information.” YouTube says that even though the “misleading” videos account for a miniscule part of viewership, “Problematic misinformation represents a fraction of 1% of what’s watched on YouTube in the U.S,” the firm says, “we know we can bring that number down even more.”
YouTube’s move to censor political speech comes as President Trump is threatening to veto the military appropriations bill over the failure of Congress to repeal the Section 230 law that protects Internet platforms like YouTube from being treated like publishers.
