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 Directly Censoring Tucker Carlson in Advance of November Election
They fear Tucker Carlson.
Facebook is censoring Tucker Carlson just weeks away from the November 3rd presidential election, hoping to silence America’s most popular political news figure.
Tucker Carlson hosts the most popular cable television show in American history on Fox News, and he’s one of the only journalists(although he eschews the term) that Americans who distrust oligarch-controlled corporate media rely on for information.
Facebook notified Tucker’s page on the social media giant that his posts would have “reduced distribution” for what they’re falsely claiming is “repeated sharing of fake news.”
Facebook has previously censored an interview Tucker conducted with a Chinese dissident who claims that coronavirus was engineered in a laboratory by Chinese government researchers.
Tucker is the most prominent political figure to criticize the alliance of big business with the establishment Democrat Party, most notably the tech monopolies of Silicon Valley. Facebook has now taken a page out of the Chinese or Soviet political playbook in censoring its own critics.
Left-wing whiners have been furiously clamoring for Facebook to censor more conservative and right-wing figures, pointing to the pitiful engagement that liberal pundits and politicians receive on the platform in comparison to figures like Tucker, Ben Shapiro, Donald Trump, and Mark Levin.
