Big Tech’s massive overstep

Congressman Jerry Carl

Like many of you, I was not shocked by the release of the Twitter Files over the weekend. If you are unfamiliar with what the Twitter Files are, they simply proved what we’ve all known to be true: Big Tech censored stories during the 2020 presidential election, including the truth about the Hunter Biden laptop story.
We learned in real-time how Twitter executives colluded to keep millions of Americans from learning the truth about Hunter Biden’s laptop right before the 2020 election. The documents released show the Biden campaign was in direct contact with Twitter urging them to censor content that their campaign did not want you and me to see. One of the exchanges said, “More to review from the Biden team,” and the Twitter team replied, “Handled.”
Right before Americans were heading to the polls in 2020, the New York Post dropped the story about Hunter Biden’s laptop and all his shady business dealings. The Biden campaign wanted this story hidden, so they urged Twitter to ban users from sharing the link to the story, and they even locked accounts of people who dared to share the story. Unbelievable.
Dozens of intelligence officials at the time, including John Brennan and James Clapper (these were Obama administration officials), all signed a letter saying the Hunter Biden laptop story was Russian disinformation and claimed the New York Post story “has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”
Did Joe Biden know about his son’s business dealings, and was he involved with them at all? Was the media and Big Tech flat out lying to us to protect the Biden campaign, or did they simply fail to do their jobs correctly? These are the questions we need answered immediately.
The truth should never be censored in America, and neither you nor I should ever be blocked or banned for simply sharing a link to a news article. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened in the last few days leading up to the presidential election. Big Tech and the liberal media pulled out all the stops to prevent us from knowing the truth about the Biden crime family.
Thankfully, in less than one month, the new House Republican majority will have the ability to use subpoena power and the power of the purse to get answers for the American people
and bring the accountability the American people deserve.
