U.S.A. – President Donald J. Trump has once again shown voters that taking action in politics is not the plodding slow process that many politicians would have the voters believe.
The White House released a survey designed to collect complaints about censorship and bias on social media platforms. The portal—hosted by Barcelona-based software firm Typeform — is advertised as a way for users to share stories of bias by Facebook, Google, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, etc. with President Donald Trump. There is even the ability to cite a social media platform other than the big five listed.
The liberal writers’ hue and cry are “Why is this happening.” The answer is here at this link.
Not even 24 hours has passed since its implementation and the liberal mainstream media has already tried to attack the bias collection tool as somehow scary and somehow an invasion of privacy in a very flimsy attempt to scare people away from using the tool.
Liberal writers complain that the tool asks for “very personal” information like your first and last name, zip code and phone number. Someone needs to remind these so-called journalists that such information was never very personal as it was information commonly found in this little item commonly called a telephone book which is distributed to nearly every home in the nation. Phone books give your address right down to the individual house you live in. Those in possession of common sense and of a healthy mental disposition wonder when did these snowflake writers decide that this information was such a secret.
Such a fearful disposition towards commonly exchanged information causes one to imagine such liberal snowflake writers gathered in numbers in their cubicles in a deep bunker wearing their tin foil hats chittering and chattering in constant fear of detection or even sunlight. Much like the employees of Facebook, Google, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, etc.
Despite the whines and cries of “the sky is falling – privacy risks” by these Chicken Little liberal writers the truth is this bias tool carries no more risk to your privacy than a telephone book. Essentially none!
As to the bias tool asking if you are an American citizen? It is a perfectly legitimate question. The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 requires all U.S. employers, regardless of size, to complete a Form I-9 upon hiring a new employee to work in the United States. Reverification of eligibility for employment in the United States may also be required under certain circumstances. E-Verify is a voluntary internet-based program to help employers verify the work authorization of new hires. Since 2009, the federal government mandates certain federal contractors to use the program. As of November 30, 2012, a total of 20 states require the use of E-Verify.
One of the main concerns is the probability that President Donald J. Trump would use the information collected to provide substantial proof of bias within these social media platform as the survey’s user agreement gives the administration the right to edit, then share, any of the stories provided. The liberal writers complain it was not exactly clear how the information would be stored and utilized, even, potentially, for the upcoming 2020 election campaign? If they really feel that they have committed no wrong then what, pray tell, are they so afraid of?
At question 14, the page requests that participants stay in touch. “We want to keep you posted on President Trump’s fight for free speech. Can we add you to our email newsletters so we can update you without relying on platforms like Facebook and Twitter?” it asks. As it is almost a certainty that these liberal writers and snowflake self-described social justice warriors will make every attempt to keep you from seeing and utilizing this bias tool or any other tools or requests for information in the near future so this is a very wise and very legitimate request that would defeat their attempts to control what you are allowed to see.
Their second largest fear is that President Donald J. Trump will have access to numerous email addresses thus bypassing the social media platforms and contacting the voter directly. Just look how desperate they are to cast this in a shady and “dark” way to convince you that there is something wrong when such an act is perfectly acceptable in today’s society.
Journalism professor and media critic Jay Rosen quipped: “Everything about this is creepy, stupid and vain.” NBC reporter Ben Collins tweeted: “The propaganda war in 2020 won’t happen on Facebook, but in the darkness of a RE:FWD:FWD email to grampa [sic].”A strong email list is a powerful tool for a political campaign to spread its message to a mass audience—just ask Barack Obama (and now Joe Biden, according to The Daily Beast).
The social media platforms should fear the generation of quite a large list of emails from complaints by conservatives affected by post banning, shadow banning, biased deplatforming of people, and just by being rudely and irritatingly punitive because you, the advertisement viewer that makes them money, didn’t have the same opinion as them too. They brought it on themselves.
We certainly stipulate to the fact that entities like Facebook, Google, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, etc. are private entities and not required to adhere to the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. However, we are also staunch proponents of the 1st Amendment and see no reason why the advertisement viewing money making users of these entities shouldn’t hold their feet to the fire and demand that they voluntarily adhere to the concepts that make this country great!
If you’ve been punished with 30, 10, 1 day posting bans or kicked off a social media platform just because you believe and posted that there are only two sexes, or that ISIS/muslims/islam is a dangerous cult, or that President Donald J. Trump is a far better President than Obama ever was then I encourage you to use the White House Bias Tool and report what happened to you.
