Just lately, there have been a number of stories in various media of huge tech companies having their discriminatory policies toward users with conservative viewpoints exposed to public view.

Just lately, the big story has been that Twitter staff have, behind the scenes, “shadow-banned” conservatives by making their tweets essentially invisible to their followers.  Current and former Twitter employees were caught on tape bragging about having made tweets by conservatives not available to their followers.

Earlier, a big story was how YouTube, owned by Google, banned PragerU from its service, comparing it to “white supremacists”.  Google is the Big Kahuna of the Internet, and its algorithm changes can prompt uproars from various “harmed” groups.  And then, there’s the recent case of Google engineer James Damore, who was fired for posting an internal essay regarding the internal culture of the company, which would put conservative employees “on trial” and shun them; many stories of disturbing content on internal Google message boards have come out recently.

Facebook, that other Big Kahuna, has also been accused by multiple parties of censoring its “news feed” to eliminate stories by and about conservatives.  It has also been called out for censoring user posts that show conservative views.

Gee, this seems to make me sound prescient for simply staying off Facebook and Twitter. So far, nobody has tried to censor RushBabe49’s conservative posts and viewpoint.  And I thank all my loyal followers for their support, even though it’s mostly silent.
