95% of Donations from Silicon Valley Big Tech Employees Have Gone to Joe Biden

Coastal elites.

Analysis of campaign donations by Wired reveals that donors affiliated with the six biggest technology companies in American have donated to Joe Biden 95% of the time. The analysis queried campaign donations made by self-identifying employees of Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, and Oracle.

The unipolar distribution of donations goes to show that employees associated with the most powerful corporations in American life are wholly in support of Joe Biden.

The Big Tech employees have donated 20 times more money to Joe Biden than they have to Donald Trump, with listed campaign donations for Biden adding up to almost $4,800,000 and just $240,000 for Trump. Alphabet, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, and Apple account for five of the seven largest donors to the Biden campaign, suggesting the entities are wholly linked together in their support of Biden.

Individual donors can give even more money to political PAC groups than they can to political campaigns, which are limited in the donation amounts they can receive from sole contributors by federal election law. The Joe Biden campaign is considerably outspending the President’s, largely enabled to do so by the support of major billionaires who staunchly oppose President Trump.

The glut of donations will largely ensure that Biden shields big tech monopolies such as Facebook and Google from regulation and oversight if he’s elected President, allowing them to continue censoring and deplatforming conservatives and nationalists.

Increasingly, the Democratic Party and American Left are wedded to the most wealthy and powerful oligarchs in American society, an implication that bodes poorly for the prospects of middle and working-class Americans who seek to advance their interests within the party. It may become an inevitability that the Republican Party realigns to fight for everyday Americans against the so-called ‘Masters of the Universe.’

Facebook Will Create “Oversight Board” For Users to Appeal Censorship Decisions

A smidgen of accountability.

Published

Facebook is planning on rolling out an “oversight board” to which users of the platform can appeal the censorship of content.

Over the next few weeks, our nearly 3 billion users will have access to an independent review of difficult content decisions,” announced the company in a Thursday blog post.

Facebook is describing the oversight board as a “global body of experts separate from Facebook that will make independent and binding decisions on the cases they choose to hear.” Facebook users will presumably have the option to appeal incidences of censorship to Facebook’s oversight board when they have exhausted use of Facebook’s existing censorship appeal process. However, the existing process is only available on a seemingly arbitrary basis, and it’s probably not unlikely that those who already aren’t in Facebook’s good graces won’t be allowed the opportunity to appeal to the oversight board.

The overseers are employed and selected by Facebook itself, casting serious doubt as to whether they’re genuinely impartial arbiters of social media censorship.

It’s hard to tell if this is a step in the right direction or merely a ruse for the monopoly to counter accusations that its arbitrary censorship process is undemocratic and authoritarian. In predictable fashion, the powerful Oversight Board is staffed almost exclusively with Soros-linked neoliberal progressives, some of whom have already advocated for a European understanding of “free speech” as opposed to an American one.

With great power comes great responsibility, and Facebook seems content to accept the former without the latter. It simply isn’t their place to declare what is permissible political speech.
