I’m sure you’ve heard all the rumors that the 2020 election was rigged and, quite frankly, stolen from former President Donald Trump. You’ve likely also heard that this was done not only thanks to the unprecedented number of absentee ballots sent in and some rather unscrupulous poll workers but also due to the actions of several Big Tech companies and mainstream media outlets.
You know, like The New York Post article on Hunter Biden and his allegedly criminating laptop that was censored and banned from social media platform Twitter.
If you haven’t heard about that, it’s for good reason.
You see, a laptop was accidentally left at a computer repair store in 2020 that supposedly belonged to none other than Hunter Biden, the notorious black sheep of the family with all sorts of under-the-table ties. That laptop and its contents were then reviewed by a number of reliable sources and said to contain not only proof of Hunter’s misdeeds but also that of his father, then-presidential candidate.
Most alarming was information proving that Hunter had set up a meeting between his politician father and a few select il executives from Ukraine while Joe Biden was the US vice president. A no-no, to be sure.
Had the story of this hit mainstream news outlets nationwide, it could have very well ruined Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign or, at the very least, caused a number of on-the-fence Biden voters to check a different box at the polls. But as you know, that never happened – and all because certain and clearly biased individuals high up in Big Tech corporations like Twitter never let it out.
In fact, both Twitter and Facebook heavily censored the entire thing. Twitter actually banned the story from being on their platform in any form and further cut out anyone who tried to make it mainstream news.
Of course, as this was all censored, it was all pretty much just an allegation up until recently. But with Elon Musk’s complete buy-out of Twitter last week, he became privy to all sorts of kept under wraps info like this.
And low and behold, what do you think he found? Yep, proof that the Hunter Biden laptop story is, in fact, authentic and that it was kept out of mainstream media on the platform for the sake of the progressive movement.
On Tuesday, he let the world know it too.
He tweeted out, “Suspending the Twitter account of a major news organization for publishing a truthful story was obviously incredibly inappropriate.”
As I’m sure you can tell, the tweet’s wording does far more than just call out the company. Rather, it calls out key individuals whose job it would have been to make such decisions without naming anyone specifically.
Those like Vijaya Gadde, who Politico describes as a “key executive” and “top lawyer” for the social media outlet. According to Politico, it was Gadde who was and is responsible for most of the company’s major censorship moves, including that of Trump’s.
In fact, within the company, she is known as the “moral authority” and leads a team that does little beyond moderating certain types of content on the platform. Naturally, this has made her somewhat of a target for the political right.
As I am sure you can imagine, Elon Musk is not a big fan. After all, this is a man who describes himself as a “free speech absolutist.”
And that doesn’t exactly bode well for Gadde or really anyone else at the company who doesn’t mind dabbling in a little one-sided discrimination, particularly if it could be used to sway political votes and careers. Gadde must know it too. Why else would she call a “virtual meeting” with her teams just after Musk announced his purchase of Twitter?
Those close to her and the meeting admitted that she is extremely concerned about where the company is headed now that a man such as Musk is in charge. She apparently even broke down in tears over such fears.
But while Gadde might be about to lose it all, the rest of us can rest assured that Twitter might finally now be somewhere free speech is allowed and appreciated.
