The Koch network is standing with Silicon Valley, as the Big Tech monopolies come under fire for their hostile business practices including Orwellian censorship and electoral interference.
CNBC reports that the Koch brothers have quietly spent at least $10 million to lobby on behalf of Big Tech in recent years. After disgraceful scandals including right-wing dissidents being choked off of various social media platforms and Google’s scheming to manipulate democracy in the 2020 election to prevent President Donald Trump’s re-election have been exposed, the Kochs are becoming more bold in their efforts to protect Silicon Valley from government regulation.
“In this time of disruption, people are wondering if they can adapt and succeed,” Charles Koch said in a video address to rich donors at his network’s summer event. “Our answer is yes.”
The Koch network is standing in opposition to an emerging bipartisan consensus, from lawmakers such as Sens. Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), calling for Big Tech to be cut down to size through reforms such as antitrust or making immunity privileges under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act conditional on being a neutral platform.
“We believe technology greatly improves people’s lives,” said Jesse Blumenthal, who works as director of technology and innovation for Stand Together, a Koch network’s front group. “
“In order to facilitate that, we need cultural attitudes and policies that allow for experimentation. That’s why we’re taking a more active role in supporting positive tech work and holding government accountable on tech issues,” he added.
The organization maintains, despite the mounting evidence to the contrary, that they are committed to freedom of speech and expression.
“There is no greater advocate for free speech or free expression than this group,” said Brian Hooks, chief executive of Stand Together. “Censorship and silencing those that we disagree with will never address the polarization that we all feel.”
However, a closer look at what the Kochs are actually doing shows that their network is being disingenuous in claiming they support basic freedoms. They are actively supporting Orwellian censorship on tech platforms, and partnering with leftist financier George Soros to do so.
The Charles Koch Institute will be sending representatives to the second annual “After Charlottesville Project” in San Francisco, CA on July 17. The event, which is sponsored by Comcast NBCUniversal, the Kresge Foundation and the Soros Fund Charitable Foundation, intends to exploit the tragedy of Charlottesville to push for even more Orwellian censorship.
The Charles Koch Institute will be joined by representatives of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) at the event. The ADL is an anti-conservative, anti-constitutional organization that openly boasts about how it lobbies Google, Facebook, Twitter and other tech giants to censor political dissidents.
Executives from tech corporations like Eventbrite, Pinterest, Mozilla, Patreon and Airbnb will attending the event as well. Pinterest was recently exposed for censoring pro-life voices on their platform while Patreon and Airbnb are notorious for capriciously banning right-wing commentators from using services offered by their companies.
The Koch network has also announced that they will be working against President Trump’s re-election in 2020. Although they may cloak their agenda in the rhetoric of freedom, the Koch brothers are putting their immense resources behind globalism and Big Brother against the American people.
Facebook Runs Electoral Interference to Stop Surging Congressional Candidate Laura Loomer
Facebook’s discriminatory practices against Loomer may be illegal.
Loomer announced on free speech platform Gab that Facebook is banning her campaign ads in what could be considered a form of electoral interference.
“This newest ban goes beyond just a ban of the Laura Loomer For Congress Facebook Page (which is required to run ads). My campaign was told yesterday that if a PAC attempted to advertise to promote my campaign, their ads would be taken down. Facebook said their new policy is that nothing about Laura Loomer is permitted on Facebook and for the duration of the election cycle, my campaign will not get access to run any of our own ads,” Loomer wrote.
“People will be banned for simply typing my name “Laura Loomer”. We have received several reports today from supporters who said their pages were suspended because the posted my donation link and my ads!” she added.
Loomer said in a statement provided to different media outlets that this should be considered criminal electoral interference because her primary competitor, incumbent Democrat Lois Frankel, is allowed to publish ads on Facebook’s vast monopoly platform.
“I’m the only federal candidate in the nation banned from advertising on Facebook. My competitor, Lois Frankel is running ads on Facebook to reach voters, and my campaign is shut out. This is illegal election interference,” Loomer said.
“If the idea of banning Lois Frankel from advertising on Facebook outrages you, you should be equally outraged over the fact that my campaign is universally de-platformed and is being denied equal access to run ads on Facebook,” she added.
Loomer is currently suing Facebook and other tech giants due to her arbitrary removal from the platform, as Big League Politics has reported:
According to Allum Bokhari of Breitbart, Facebook has demanded a federal judge in Miami to immediately dismiss a defamation lawsuit that Laura Loomer brought against them.
Facebook put forward the argument that its decision to ban her as a “dangerous individual” does not fall under the grounds of defamation.
Facebook filed a motion to dismiss where it argued that “calling someone ‘dangerous’— or saying that she ‘promoted or ‘engaged’ in ‘hate’— is a protected statement of opinion.”
Facebook called attention to how other platforms have banned her and stated that “this is clearly an issue where, at a minimum, reasonable minds can disagree.”
Additionally, the motion cited Loomer’s appearances with Gavin McInnes, another individual that Facebook labeled as “dangerous”, as a justification for deplatforming her.
Breitbart News exclusively revealed a year ago that Facebook takes into account off-site behavior to determine whether certain users get deplatformed.
Bokhari noted that Facebook engages in the monitoring of “the on-platform and off-platform activities of prominent political individuals in an internal file called ‘Hate Agent policy review’.”
Loomer aims to become the next U.S. Representative in Florida’s 21st Congressional district in spite of the Big Tech conspiracy gunning for her.
