President Trump is preparing an executive order to address the anti-American, anti-conservative bias leveled against conservatives by big tech, Silicon Valley, and social media.
The move comes a month after the president pledged to explore “all regulatory and legislative solutions” on the issue.
Two other people knowledgeable about the discussions also confirmed the existence of the draft order.
None of the three people could say what penalties, if any, the order would envision for companies deemed to be censoring political viewpoints. The order, which deals with other topics besides tech bias, is still in the early drafting stages and is not expected to be issued imminently.
“The President announced at this month’s social media summit that we were going to address this and the administration is exploring all policy solutions,” a second White House official told the news site.
It is beyond a shadow of a doubt that the left-controlled social media landscape is ruled by leftists that use their platforms to push only left-wing ideals and that they use their computer algorithms to target and quash conservative voices.
Literally, thousands of conservatives have been banned, suspended, and otherwise limited on social media simply for the “crime” of not having the same political view as the extreme leftists who run sites such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and the like.
It is this fact that the president’s social media summit is set to begin addressing at long last.
The White House said that the summit was to focus on “tremendous dishonesty, bias, discrimination, and suppression practiced by certain companies.” The president has been a leading voice accusing these services of censoring conservatives.
“I will tell you, they make it very hard for people to join me on Twitter, and they make it very much harder for me to get out the message. It’s incredible,” Trump told Fox Business Network last month.
“The Fake News is not as important, or as powerful, as Social Media,” Trump tweeted ahead of the event. “They have lost tremendous credibility since that day in November, 2016, that I came down the escalator with the person who was to become your future first Lady. When I ultimately leave office in six years, or maybe 10 or 14 (just kidding), they will quickly go out of business for lack of credibility, or approval, from the public.”
Naturally, the left-wing media attacked the event calling its participants “bigots,” and “extremists.” Huffington Post even smeared the event saying it is a “bigotry circus.”
CNN, for instance, attacked the event saying that Trump had “invited extremists to the White House.” The Daily Beast said that smart members of the White House are “mortified” over the event. Left-wing website, The Verge, tried to undermine the event saying it has an “ulterior motive.” And hard-left magazine, Vanity Fair, calls the summit a “far-right troll convention.”
The left has turned itself inside out to refuse to accept the obvious bias big tech levels against American citizens.
