We've seen plenty of discussion on the subject of involvement by the government in the blocking of free speech.
However, as we've mentioned before, there are other initiatives that are in addition to the Twitter Files which are being undertaken to expose flaws, and not only on Twitter. Joint AGs of Louisiana and Missouri have filed suit against the Biden government in 2022 over alleged collaboration with social media in order to censor speech on social media platforms .
They attempted to take on the tweet of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. the controversial Democrat who would not follow the narrative.
This email is sent by Clarke Humphrey of the Executive Office of the President to the Twitter account of Twitter. Humphrey was the Director of Digital in the Response to COVID-19 Team within The White House. She stated that she was “wondering if we can get moving on the process of having it removed ASAP,” as if this was something they would normally do. “We” sure sounds like collusion to me. Oh , and “keep an eye out” for more.
We also noted that they were watching posts made by Tucker Carlson and Tomi Lahren. Lahren's offense? Simply saying she won't take the vaccine.
Another was sent by Rob Flaherty, Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of Digital Strategy in the Executive Office of the President. Andy Slavitt was also copied on the document. He was the senior Pandemic Advisor for Biden's COVID-19 pandemic response team.
An employee from Google explained to Flaherty how they can limit the impact of “this type of content” on Youtube.
Check out the complete smugness and arrogance of this piece. We are only interested in knowing the actions you take in order to obey the law and to silence expression, Flaherty clarifies.
If the details aren't evident, the scheme begins from the “highest levels of the White House.”
“These communications confirm the things we've suspected since the beginning, that the Biden Administration has been working with social media companies in order to suppress oppositional voices,” Bailey concluded. “I will continue to push back against this blatant attack on the 1st Amendment with every tool at my disposal.”
Attorney Generals are continuing their fight in the case against the Biden administration. This shows, yet again, how deep into that rabbit hole the administration was willing to ensure the social media outlets were in line with their official narrative.
