Freedom-Loving Americans Beware When Using Social Media

Connecting with friends, families – and complete strangers with similar interests- on the internet has become an intimate part of American society.

But how is society being shaped when every word on major social media networks is being filtered to favor a liberal viewpoint?

Freedom-loving conservatives don’t want to wait and find out – thus beginning the mass exodus to social media platforms that don’t try to tell you how to think.

Major tech giants like Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, and Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, have been the topic of a lot of headlines in recent years.

As Mommy Underground has previously reported, it is these very platforms that are actively stifling conservative speech using an algorithm that detects discussions related to conservative opinions in order to eliminate them.

If that’s not a slap in the face to the first amendment, what is?!

So where do we go from here?

After Trump’s notorious ban from Twitter, the social media platform Gab became an overnight sensation as conservatives fought back against the biased tyrant.

The CEO of Gab, Andrew Torba, said his site was picking up 10,000 users an hour after Twitter made the bad move of restricting the voice of the most influential man in America right now.

Torba also wrote on his site, as The Daily Wire reports:

“500,000+ new users today. 18 million visits. You don’t need an account to use the site. The Silicon Valley Exodus has begun. Get in the Ark. The best is yet to come.”

Launching in 2016, Gab is a “social network that champions free speech, individual liberty, and the new free flow of information online,” the site explains.

This is exactly the kind of platform the nation needs right now!

And Trump feels the same way.

Trump was able to get the word out on Twitter before leaving office, warning the American public of the affronts to the Constitution that Twitter is getting away with.

“As I have been saying for a long time, Twitter has gone further and further in banning free speech, and tonight, Twitter employees have coordinated with the Democrats and the Radical Left in removing my account from their platform, to silence me — and YOU, the 75,000,000 great patriots who voted for me”

Another social media platform that won’t redact any non-socialist, pro-abortion political views is Parler.

However, it is not surprising that they are also being attacked for promoting themselves as a “free speech” alternative to Facebook and Twitter.

The New York Times reported:

…Parler has become one of the fastest-growing apps in the United States. Millions of President Trump’s supporters have flocked to it as Facebook and Twitter increasingly cracked down on posts that spread misinformation and incited violence, including muzzling Mr. Trump by removing his accounts…Apple listed Parler as the No. 1 free app for its iPhones.”

So it goes without saying those who hold the monopolies in the social media world are highly upset with Parler’s increasing popularity, threatening the propaganda they have worked so hard to establish.

Apple and Google removed the Parler app from their stores, claiming Parler encouraged violence by not policing their users who discussed going to the Capitol on January 6th.

By this standard Google and Apple should ban themselves for creating a space where violence against anyone who disagrees with the BLM movement or defunding the police was promoted.

Most notable being the death threats Parler CEO John Matze has received for allowing freedom of speech, reports Business Insider.

Connecting with family and friends online is fast and convenient, but we should be able to openly express our thoughts, feelings, and opinions freely within the confines of the law.

Frankly, that just cannot be done on Twitter and Facebook with the powers behind the screen forcing their over-reaching hand over your mouth when you say something on their “naughty” list.
