Suppression of free speech on the internet is rapidly becoming a societal norm, at least across the Big Tech spectrum of social media and search engine platforms. And none other than Twitter is helping to lead the way in outlawing all independent journalism from ever reaching your eyes or ears online.
Under the guise of combatting “fake news” and “Russian propaganda,” Twitter has taken to scrubbing all posts and deleting all accounts that disseminate information that’s in any way contrary to the government-approved propaganda being pushed by the tech overlords.
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) reportedly paid Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest man, $600 million to develop software and media for the deep state agency, while Google has long partnered with the State Department to spread pro-imperialistic propaganda favoring war and regime change around the world.
“The Atlantic Council is a NATO offshoot and its board of directors reads like a rogue’s gallery of warmongers, including the notorious Henry Kissinger, Bush-era hawks like Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell, James Baker, the former head of the Department of Homeland Security and author of the PATRIOT Act, Michael Chertoff, a number of former Army Generals including David Petraeus and Wesley Clark and former heads of the CIA Michael Hayden, Leon Panetta and Michael Morell,” writes Mnar Muhawesh for Mint Press News.
Since upwards of 40 percent of Americans get their news from Facebook, as does a similar percentage of people from other countries, what the baby of Mark Zuckerberg is doing by partnering with The Atlantic Council is engaging in full-scale, global-level state censorship of information that’s more of a fit for communist China than it is this former “land of the free.”
