Do Tech Companies Use Hate Speech to Filter Political Digital Content?

tech giants shut down free speech


In the last few months of 2018, social media companies have been accused of picking sides and seen as sidelining certain political views and the users who do their very best promote them. Rule changes on Twitter saw many far right accounts shut down.  Mike Cernovich, Laura Loomer and Jack Posobiec among many others have had their Medium accounts shut down and any right leaning Youtube channel that covers any of a multitude of topics from 9-11 to moon hoax to flat earth  have all been shut down or demonetized. The biggest name of all among alt-right content creators; Alex Jones’s Infowars YouTube channel, with more than 2 million subscribers was also shut down across all major tech sites on the same day. Some see this as a removal of hate speech, others see it as an erosion of the 1st amendment of the constitution.

At the same time the top trending videos every day on Youtube are often members of the LGBTQ community giving make up tutorials. Most fair minded people regardless of their political views see this a s a political move by the tech giants as a stifling of opposition narratives that could be considered just as much of an election interference as anything Russia did in 2016 but has thus far gone largely unacknowledged by the liberal mainstream media who seem happy to speak out of both sides of their mouth.

Earlier this month, Donald Trump who for the most part has been busy with other issues and not spoken too much about the curation or organic content within the search engine results page has at last began talking about adding pressure to the tech giants plate to ensure equal opportunity is allowed for fair content creators who are trying to win either at content marketing, SEO or social media content across the United States and wider world.

Seems fair to say that until his message has been taken on board and changed to their policies have been made, if you want to rank well on Google in 2019 and beyond, it is probably a good idea to let the content author be a female from a minority group that is left leaning and ideally from an LGBTQ community. More than this, they should be anti guns, anti Donald Trump and certainly offer no support for alt-right conspiracy theories.
