Morning Greatness: Holy Trinity of Tech Dirtbags to Appear Before the Senate

Good Wednesday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president delivers remarks at a Make America Great Again Victory Rally in Bullhead City, Arizona
  • The president delivers remarks at a Make America Great Again Victory Rally, in Goodyear, Arizona

Today: Big Senate hearing staring Big Tech Assholes

The holy trinity of tech dirtbags will appear before the Senate Commerce Committee on Wednesday to take questions from old, technology-impaired dinosaurs to answer for social media election interference and censorship.

I’m sure you remember back in 2016, when the tech overlords were wailing and lamenting the Trump victory and blamed themselves for “allowing” the Trump campaign and Trump supporters to use tech “services” to campaign and spread its message. They vowed not to make that mistake again and we are seeing censorship in action right now.

We only need to look at the censoring of the Hunter Biden scandal to see the most shameless and disgusting election interference ever to take place in America. Twitter and Facebook both refused to allow The New York Post to share its story about Hunter Biden’s laptop which was chock full of influence peddling by the Biden family, clearly undertaken with his father’s (basement Biden) knowledge.  The New York Post is still banned from Twitter as I write this.

Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter’s Jack Dorsey and Google’s Sundar Pichai are scheduled to answer growing criticism from the right over the moderation of prominent conservatives’ posts, including President Trump, before the Senate Commerce Committee on Wednesday.

Fueling tensions ahead of the hearing are explosive allegations by conservatives that Facebook and Twitter interfered in the 2020 election by throttling a New York Post article earlier this month that alleged ties between the Democratic presidential nominee and his son Hunter’s business dealings with Ukraine.

“These are among the most powerful people in the country,” Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), the chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee said. “Under the current law, they get a free pass” to censor anything “they find objectionable,” Wicker said.

“In my view we should not leave it up to big tech what is objectionable and what isn’t.”

Those days need to end. Seize the companies as public utilities or rescind their immunity. The tech clowns claim they are simply tools. NO. A tool or a service is my phone company. AT&T doesn’t drop my calls when they don’t like what I am talking about on a conference call. Comcast doesn’t turn off my internet if they don’t approve of what shows I am watching. Social media is MEDIA and they should be treated like the legacy media. The legacy media has editors and decides what to cover and feature. This is the same with You Tube, Facebook and Twitter. They are CURATING your feed, they are EDITING your feeds so they are media outlets. They can claim it’s about “hate” and “Nazi’s” but that’s just an excuse to control what you see and read and watch.

  1. Each member of the Senate Committee should provide a full disclosure of how much money their campaigns have received from Google, Twitter, Facebook and any officers of those companies.

    These smug a**holes believe they can buy their way out of any trouble with Congress, as they have been for the last decade or so.

  2. The social media robber barons have talked to congress before. They spit up a mixture of minor acknowledgment and denial Febreezed with a spray of promises to correct the problem. Congress has done nothing, and the barons have used the time to build their culturally and politically biased algorithms bigger and stronger so they can influence the next election even more.

    What’s different this time? Congress has grown no more spine than it had. Social media have undergone no epiphany, so their values remain the same. Why would you expect results now?

  3. Can’t Congress vote to strip Pichai’s naturalization? Yes, let’s send him packing back to India. He has seriously violated his oath of citizenship and no longer deserves to be here. I wonder if Zberg has dual citizenship? Can we send him packing as well? Anyone who directly engages members of the CCP to staff up his company should live in fear for his life. Dorsey is garden variety twisted, a jerk, a creep. I suspect there’s an awful lot of baggage or a closet filled with skeletons there.

    • @Alecto What you advocate for is something very dangerous. It is just as bad, if not worse, than the rhetoric of the libs. They are CEOs of private companies that people willingly use their products for. Products that are internet based. They aren’t even substantive products that can be touched. I thought corporations were people too? They are expressing their own free speech that they are entitled to on their own platforms that they run.

  4. If these “tech dirbags” were doing what they do on behalf of Trump and “conservative” values would they still be “dirtbags”? Maybe, but they would be “our” dirtbags, and that would make all the difference.
