Tool of the Week: Big Brother Facebook and Twitter

Empower Wisconsin | Oct. 19, 2020

Having a hard time navigating the news this election year? 

Facebook and Twitter will protect you. 

The social network giants, hefty funders of the Democratic Party, don’t want you to be bothered by such pesky complications as a counterpoint, or facts that don’t support the left’s narrative. 

They certainly don’t want you to have to be subjected to “disinformation” that Hunter Biden appears to have traded on his famous father’s name for lucrative deals in Ukraine and China. That Papa Joe Biden, the former vice president and Democrat presidential candidate, might not be telling the truth when he angrily says he didn’t get involved in the international business of his talentless son who has struggled mightily with drug addiction. 

That’s why the watchmen at Twitter and Facebook took it upon themselves to block a bombshell report by the New York Post last week that the publication says includes emails showing Joe was in the thick of things. 

One of the emails appears to outline a payout for Biden as part of a deal with a Chinese energy firm. 

As Fox News reported:

The email includes a note that “Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.” A proposed equity split references “20” for “H” and “10 held by H for the big guy?” with no further details. Fox News spoke to one of the people who was copied on the email, who confirmed its authenticity.

Sources told Fox News that “the big guy” is a reference to the former vice president. The New York Post initially published the emails and other controversial messages that Fox News has also obtained.

The usual suspects in the mainstream media don’t want you to know about that. Some, like The Washington Post, have tried to explain the curious emails away. 

But Twitter and Facebook can do one better: They can make information — any information — disappear. 

Facebook, the most popular social network in the world with some 2.6 billion users, announced it would be “reducing (the Post’s story) distribution on our platform.” Facebook Policy Communications Director Andy Stone, a former Democratic congressional staffer, made the decision. 

Twitter, which ranks several notches below Facebook but still boasts some 326 million users, outright blocked its users for sharing the story because it violated the platform’s “Hacked Materials Policy.” The emails reportedly came from Hunter Biden’s laptop, which he left in the shop for repairs in April 2019 and didn’t bother to pick up. 

But the social network titans don’t think this is the kind of information the American voter needs. It certainly wouldn’t be helpful to Joe Biden’s presidential quest. 

They feel this way because they are tools of the Democratic Party and its far left agenda. 

Facebook and Twitter together are Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
