Social Media is A Propaganda machine.
Today’s media has become a propaganda machine for the communist party. They will determine your future and the future of our country. They need to be stopped.
Is This The United States?
Is this even the country where I grew up? It is hard to believe. The power of social media seems almost unstoppable. They are taking us to the brink of communism. I know it seems hard to think but look around. The media decides what we read, and when we read it. Who honestly wants Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, deciding who can say what. Yes, it’s a private company, but in my humble opinion, it’s a monopoly and should be highly regulated—that from someone who is against big government.
Media CEOs Decide What We Need to Know
Who Are They
Let’s face facts. Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerburg (CEO) of Facebook are not my favorite people right now, and likely I’m not alone. We helped these tech giants, their founders, and CEO’s get filthy rich. I’m certainly not against someone being filthy rich; more power to them, but they have accumulated great responsibility with their power.
First, they are both wealthy. According to a CNN report, Mr. Zuckerberg is worth $100 billion. Mr. Dorsey, on the other hand, is worth a paltry $6.8 billion, according to Forbes. To his credit, he gave away $1 billion to fight COVID-19, and he only takes an annual salary of $1.40. Of course, Trump doesn’t take a salary either, so I don’t know if that means anything. And he lives in his $9 million exclusive seaside resort in San Fransisco.
Now, Mark Zuckerburg also takes a paltry salary. Probably his $100 billion help him keep food on his table. According to CNN, he also signed a pledge to give away his fortune during or after his life. Somehow I doubt either of these men will end up homeless or wanting anytime soon.
So they both seem to be nice wealthy guys. They made fortunes in the tech world, and they have given back. So is, are those the qualifiers for using their power through social media to decide our future?
Do They Have Integrity?
Mark Zuckerburg purportedly said, “By giving people the power to share, we’re making the world more transparent.” But has he given the world more power to share? The social media giant that Zuckerburg controls admittedly intentionally slowed the spread of a New York Post Story damaging to former Vice President Joe Biden. He kept the Post story from the people despite mounting evidence from multiple sources that the story is true. Is that transparency?
He also reportedly said, “When you give everyone a voice and give people power, the system usually ends up in a really good place. So, what we view our role as, is giving people that power.” So, keeping the news from people is giving them power? I’m not so sure about that. Isn’t that exactly what they do in communist China. It is an example of what I mean when I say the media is becoming a communist propaganda machine.
Now Jack Dorsey admitted that Twitter made a mistake by stopping people from sharing that same New York Post story without explanation. But did he do anything about it? If he did, someone might want to tell all those who had their accounts disabled to share the story. I’m not sure integrity is at the top of the list of these two men who control much of social media.
Do The Social Media CEO’s Keep Their Power In Check?
What Does It Mean To Keep Your Power In Check?
Let me liken it to my license to carry, as we call it in Texas. I live in a state where open carry is allowed. I choose to keep my firearms concealed. I see no reason to walk around, making others uncomfortable because I have the right to do so.
I also believe that my privilege to carry a firearm comes with even greater responsibility. I must be meticulous not to pull that firearm without excellent reason. And I should be held liable if I make an error in judgment and injure or, worse, kill someone innocent.
I understand that, and so I keep the power that concealed weapon gives me hidden. I do not use it and will not use it unless it is a last resort. But this isn’t about gun rights. It is about power.
It doesn’t appear that the big tech giants’ CEOs are doing much to keep their power in check. They are doing just the opposite. They wield it like a sharp sword or, more accurately, a sniper rifle.
The Evidence Says Power Unchecked
The first article I read today was about Twitter locking another conservative activist, Charlie Kirk, out of his account because he made what is seemingly a simple error which he was willing to correct. but they were not willing to listen.1So we now have the New York Post locked out of their account because of an article they wrote and cited in a tweet, President Trump’s official account locked because he cited the same article. And to top it all, now we find that Joe Biden is in bed with the social media giants.2 Where does it end?
Let’s not forget that Kamala Harris has some high-level ties to at least one Twitter official. According to another Fox News article, a senior communications director at Twitter who personally announced that the official trump Twitter account violated Twitter COVID-19 misinformation rules previously served as her press secretary and deputy press secretary for several years.3
And what about that New York Post story. See for yourself and read the original story here. But don’t stop there. Check out this opinion written by Michael Goodwin and published in the Post. After you read it, you will be hard-pressed to believe the social media or any media is not incredibly biased. The progressives want to take away the second amendment, and it appears they did a pretty good job of taking away the first amendment, at least if you are conservative.
I hope you can see how our media is becoming a communist propaganda machine. They are hiding news that hurts their candidate and allowing the spread of news that helps them. This is not just a slippery slope. If left unchecked, the media will take us to the brink of communism. And then they will take us all the way.
