Doesn’t matter. They’ll lie like they did the other times they’ve testified, and they’ll keep on censoring.

Following repeated accusations of censoring and shadowbanning conservative voices, three tech giants, Google, Facebook and Twitter will testify at a Senate hearing next week.Facebook’s public policy director Neil Potts will attend the hearing which will be held by the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution next week.Twitter and Google will also send their representatives to the event, which is aptly named ‘Stifling Free Speech: Technological Censorship and the Public Discourse,’ according to The Hill.
The tech giant will likely face some very hard questions.
The subcommittee’s panel is to be chaired by Ted Cruz, a Texas Republican, who has already been very vocal about his stance on the subject.
“Big tech behaves like the only acceptable views are those on the far left,” Cruz said last week.“And any views to the contrary are suitable for censorship and silencing.”
……Social media companies have been inundated with accusations coming from Washington, and the White House in particular on censorship.
……According to RT: Nunes accused the social network of “shadow-banning” right-leaning users while refusing to take action against “abusive, hateful and defamatory” content from left-leaning users. Twitter refuted all accusations.
……Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has repeatedly dismissed accusations of liberal bias directed at the company.
Grilled by Republican lawmakers on the topic last year, Zuckerberg insisted that their examples of censorship were once-off mistakes, but did admit that most of his employees probably lean leftwards, politically.
Facebook’s staff is manipulative, unethical, dishonest, and left-wing. (Who didn’t know this?) Its reputation for censoring viewpoints it doesn’t like is well documented.
Conservative pundit Paul Joseph Watson got death threats from a muzzie Facebook page, but according to Facebook it ‘doesn’t violate community standards’.
Lauren Southern, a conservative commentator, was banned from Facebook for 30 days because she posted a comment that criticized the left-leaning hierarchy’s habit of censoring opposing viewpoints. The irony is lost on The Zuck.
Zuck’s minions also banned links to Zerohedge.
Conservative sites have been suspended over Zuckerberg’s political preferences, but leftie radicals, muzzie terrorists and their mouthpieces, and videos demonstrating adult sex acts to kids, are relatively unscathed.
Twitter is just as bad. Jack Dorsey’s drones ban people whenever they see something they don’t like; such as posts by conservatives. And especially anything that proves Hillary’s and Obama’s involvement in the conspiracy to subvert the election of Donald Trump.
Twitter also banned conservative street artist Sabo.
Don’t expect much from the upcoming testimony. Ted Cruz can grill them all he wants, but unless people start switching to free speech platforms like Gab, the leftie social media tyrants won’t get the message.
