Big tech has been gunning for our ability to speak freely for God knows how long now… at least ten years, probably longer. It hasn’t really been noticeable until the 2016 election, for obvious Trump-related reasons. But now, in the wake of nigh-on four years of super Trumpy Trumpness, we’re seeing it in real time, and it’s affecting people’s lives in immediate and tangible ways.
For most Americans who’s livelihoods are not directly connected to social media and access to the electronic public square, it doesn’t stand out like the sore thumb that it is. But for those of us who make their livings online, working in the so-called “alternative media” bringing real news to real people, it’s been a non-stop hail storm of nonsense and bullhonkery.
People have had their Pay Pal accounts shut down over spurious accusations of wrong think. They have had their actual bank accounts shut down, their You Tube channels censored, demonetized and shut down and even their credit card accounts canceled. It’s a phenomenon that has many former atheists considering Christianity again simply because of what the Bible says about the mark of the beast and people’s ability to buy and sell if they don’t accept it.
Frankly, the parallels are frightening.
Fortunately, some major players are now beginning to fight back. Louder With Crowder has won dozens of lawsuits. Even Tulsi Gabbard is suing Google. Now, PragerU is joining the fight.
Here’s PragerU with more on their efforts to punch tech censorship right in its ugly face.
