In another example of how Big Tech oligarchs are in the bag for the Democratic party, the California-based monopolies are working hand-in-hand with the Biden administration to impose a chilling new round of censorship.
Under the pretense of fighting “COVID misinformation,” the leaders of Facebook, Google, and Twitter will be waging war on free speech on their platforms by eliminating honest questions about vaccines, one more way that Dems have weaponized an unprecedented public health crisis to crush their political opposition.
The move comes as the Biden regime is preparing to burn through $1 billion in taxpayer money on a propaganda campaign to promote the vaccines with Biden’s stated goal being to get the vaccines into the arms of all Americans.
According to a Reuters exclusive, Biden’s chief of staff Ron Klain is working with the Silicon Valley billionaires to further police their platforms.

“The White House has been reaching out to social media companies including Facebook, Twitter and Alphabet Inc’s Google about clamping down on COVID misinformation and getting their help to stop it from going viral, a senior administration official said.
President Joe Biden, who has raced to curb the pandemic since taking office, has made inoculating Americans one of his top priorities and called the move “a wartime effort.” But tackling public fear about taking the vaccine has emerged as a major impediment for the administration.
“Disinformation that causes vaccine hesitancy is going to be a huge obstacle to getting everyone vaccinated and there are no larger players in that than the social media platforms,” said the source, who has direct knowledge of the White House’s efforts.
“We are talking to them … so they understand the importance of misinformation and disinformation and how they can get rid of it quickly.”
But the alliance with the abusive tech companies and their China-style censorship is a troublesome sign now that the U.S. government is using Twitter, Facebook, and Google as an end-around the Constitution and its protections under the First amendment.
The Reuters report cites input from the “Center for Countering Digital Hate”, an NGO with offices in London and Washington D.C. with reported ties to the UK Labor party.
The censorship isn’t going to stop at vaccine skeptics with Big Tech’s ever-shifting rules and the increasingly wider net that is being used to define political dissent as hate speech.
Silicon Valley is firmly Biden country and such an alliance puts all of America’s traditional values like free speech in danger of being canceled.
