Exclusive Parscale: President Trump Needs Your Help to Counter Big Tech Censorship Deniers
Breitbart ^ | 5/20/2019 | Brad Parscale

Posted on 05/20/2019 7:07:46 PM PDT by bitt

The White House is asking Americans to share their personal stories of censorship and bias on social media. Predictably, liberals don’t seem interested in believing these victims.

The appeal was announced on Wednesday and includes a tool to monitor Big Tech censorship. This is welcome news for conservatives and anyone concerned about the trend of censorship by the giant social media and search engine companies. It’s proof positive that Donald Trump is very serious about stopping the suppression of conservative speech on social media, as he alluded to in a recent tweet, when he said, “Social Media & Fake News Media, together with their partner, the Democrat Party, have no idea the problems they are causing for themselves. VERY UNFAIR!”

The mainstream media response to the new White House initiative, however, expressed precious little concern over the notion that the tech oligopoly is abusing its power over ordinary Americans, instead trying to gaslight us by implying that social media censorship is all in our heads.

I wasn’t surprised. That’s been the fake news’s consistent stance throughout Big Tech’s campaign to banish voices on the right from the modern public square and shift the terms of the debate in favor of their Democratic allies.

Luckily, after years of ever-tightening censorship against conservatives and Trump supporters, that narrative is so transparently false that it’s impossible to take seriously.

Facebook, Twitter, Google, YouTube, and other social media platforms have become the essential forum for political debate. The gradual disappearance of popular right-leaning personalities and accounts from these platforms over the past three years is hardly just some big coincidence.

Turn the U.S. Postal Service into a social media hub.

Let people sign up and get their mail digitized to a secure, military-encrypted email address.

If people need to get packages, they can easily do so at the Post Office.

Introduce online-bill pay, short-term lending, and 3rd-party payment services to compete with PayPal.

Introduce video chat and messaging to compete with Twitter and YouTube.

And the page itself would compete with Facebook.

It is ludicrous, in this day and age, for physical mail to be delivered (An exemption can be made for seniors or the disabled).

The DOJ should be going after the companies that own both the cable infrastructure and the major news venues. There must be no vertical control of information. We should all be discussing this — regularly.

Twitter, Facebook et al. should be required to publicly disclose their biases — as in truth-in-advertising. But these companies are not utilities and, in my opinion, have the right to behave like bullies.

There’s plenty of talent and money on the right to compete in the social media space. The idea of applying “fairness” regulations to these operations is disturbing.

I don’t think it is ludicrous at all. I still have my bank mail surface mailed, because I want a record and I do not want to download and print everything. You are sadly mistaken if you do not want to keep your own records or farm them out to some other entity that you have no control over.

You know, utilities such as did not exist as such until the 19th/20th century. Before that, although commercial entities could create de facto monopolies on certain goods or services, I expect that regulation did not work so well.

Now we have a new type of entity, Internet based social media. Our laws are based on the past but IMO we need a law addressing these new social media entities. They have achieved a near monopoply and they are stifling free speech.

Our society is moving too fast to rely on fixes by the market. We could see a real problem with the 2020 election if something is not done now. Since it is unlikely that it can be done through legislation at this point, it will have to be done some other way.

nothing will be done before the election because the dems control the house. Don’t know if the FCC can act

I think it is. It is ludicrous for mail carriers to be hand-delivering mail into mailboxes in the 21st century.

I still have my bank mail surface mailed, because I want a record and I do not want to download and print everything.

Where do you think that bank record originates from? From a computer. It's not hand-written on an accounting ledger, you know.

You are sadly mistaken if you do not want to keep your own records or farm them out to some other entity that you have no control over.

I keep all my records electronically on an encrypted cloud server. They are neatly filed into folders. Therefore, I have no huge filing cabinets that take up space and can get lost or stolen if there was a fire or a break-in.

Mail delivery is obsolete. Turn the USPS into a social media hub and get rid of mail carriers.
