President Donald Trump has talked very tough about putting corporate tech giants who are at war with free speech in their place with frequent messages calling out Amazon, Google, Facebook and Twitter for their anti-American business practices.
So sorry to hear the news about Jeff Bozo being taken down by a competitor whose reporting, I understand, is far more accurate than the reporting in his lobbyist newspaper, the Amazon Washington Post. Hopefully the paper will soon be placed in better & more responsible hands!

But Trump hasn’t followed up that rhetoric with concrete action, even as his supporters are thrown off various platforms for terms of service violations that are not enforced in an even-handed manner. There is one Presidential hopeful in 2020 who is ready to take serious action to solve this problem, and it is Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).
Pocahontas has become a laughingstock of sorts after faking Indian heritage to gain affirmative action benefits throughout her life, but her proposal to take down the tech giants is as deadly serious as the Plains Indians were at Little Big Horn.
“I want a government that makes sure everybody — even the biggest and most powerful companies in America — plays by the rules,” Ms. Warren said according to a New York Times report. “To do that, we need to stop this generation of big tech companies from throwing around their political power to shape the rules in their favor and throwing around their economic power to snuff out or buy up every potential competitor.”
“To restore the balance of power in our democracy, to promote competition, and to ensure that the next generation of technology innovation is as vibrant as the last, it’s time to break up our biggest tech companies,” she added.
Warren’s proposal would call for regulators to “unwind tech mergers that illegally undermine competition” and this would apply retroactively to major firms. It could rollback Facebook’s acquisition of WhatsApp and Instagram, Google’s acquisition of Waze, and Amazon’s take over of Whole Foods. Entities like Amazon Marketplace and AmazonBasics would be split into separate companies as well.
Her proposal would also create legislation that would disallow social media platforms that allow a marketplace for commerce from profiting in that same marketplace. This would ideally end certain conflicts of interest to stop total corporate dominance of these monopoly platforms. While not specifically addressing free speech protections for dissidents, Warren is offering an ambitious proposal that would do a great deal to put the clamps on Big Brother.
While Warren is working to put the tech giants in their place, President Trump is wooing them at summits and boasting that he will help import more cheap labor to funnel even more cash into their operation.
Trump cannot let Pocahontas of all people get ahead of him on this key issue, and he must propose bold action. When devising the reforms, Trump would be wise to rely on the wisdom of his own son. Donald Trump Jr. showed in a recent interview with Tucker Carlson of FOX News that he is very well-versed on the issue of tech censorship.
What to do about Big Tech will be one of the top issues for voters in 2020. By serving the corporate elite, Trump will send voters into the coffers of Pocahontas and other liberals who at least propose concrete solutions to fend off the Orwellian nightmare rather than offering just rhetoric.
Amazon Updates App Icon After People Complain That It Reminded Them of Adolf Hitler
The left is obsessed with Nazis.
Amazon has changed the logo of its smartphone app after people said that it reminded them of Adolf Hitler.
The original logo (on the left in the image above) depicted a piece of blue tape above the classic smile arrow. Amazon introduced it in January to replace the image of a shopping cart.
Some people—presumably leftists, because no one else is as obsessed with Nazis as them—claimed on Twitter that the combination of the smile and the tape looked too much like Hitler’s toothbrush mustache.

It’s not just a ripped scotch tape, it’s a ripped scotch tape that has a similar shape and is right on top of a smiling mouth. Looks like a happy little cardboard Adolf to me

This is the second time in recent days that leftists have seen Nazi-related imagery where there is none. Over this past weekend Twitter blew up after some claimed that CPAC’s stage setup resembled the Odal rune. Aside from the ridiculousness of the idea that CPAC intentionally shaped it like the Odal rune, the rune is not a Nazi symbol per se. The Scandinavians of late antiquity and the early Middle Ages used runes as letters of their alphabet. The Odal rune only became a symbol after a couple of SS divisions appropriated it as such.
Back in June Big League Politics reported how Facebook cited “Nazi symbolism” as an excuse to justify removing Trump campaign ads that attacked Antifa:
Facebook has censored political advertisements from President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and the Trump campaign targeting the ANTIFA domestic terrorist group.
The social media giant is claiming that the ads were guilty of “violating our policy against organized hate.” They claim that the campaign was using symbols from Nazi Germany, which is not quite accurate.
“Our policy prohibits using a banned hate group’s symbol to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or discusses the symbol,” a spokesperson from Facebook wrote.
However, the Trump campaign pointed out in response to the censorship that the inverted red triangle symbol is “widely used by antifa.” A fact check confirms that the Trump campaign is telling the truth about the symbol’s use.
Leftists like to condemn conservatives who dabble in “conspiracy theories” yet at the same time claim to see Nazis and Nazism everywhere they look. Very deluded behavior.
