Flashback: Democrat Donors, Activists Run Twitter
A report from August 2018 showed that a whopping 80% of Twitter’s corporate PAC contributions in 2018 went to Democratic candidates. None of these candidates, it says, were moderates. Similar numbers occurred in the 2016 race as well.
According to the author, “Twitter sought to influence Congress and federal agencies on behalf of Democratic causes and against President Trump’s policies.” One of the ways that have been doing this is shadowbanning (limiting the visibility of) non-establishment and non-progressive candidates, like Ronna McDaniel, the GOP Chair. It also included several other Republicans leading Hill investigations into the Obama administration’s efforts to spy on the Trump campaign, which were proven to be true. This included Representatives Devin Nunes (CA), Matt Gaetx (FL), Jim Jordan (OH), Mark Meadows (NC), and John Ratcliffe (TX).
Recall that John Ratcliffe is now the acting DNI in charge of the aggregate intelligence report related to US elections as a result of a much-discussed 2018 executive order by President Donald Trump.
Until recently, Twitter has always blamed these one-sided shadow-bans and suspensions against dissenting voices on technical glitches and generic filters against hate content.
In fact, in July of 2020 alone, “Twitter purged more than 380,000 of Trump’s followers, claiming they were fake accounts, and it’s now assisting special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Trump for alleged obstruction of justice based in part on his tweets.”
The idea that all of these people and those being shadow-banned are hatemongers is obviously a lie. It is really done so to smear all non-establishment and non-globalists as hatemongers, racists, trolls and users who incite violence. Yet, the wide net of such ‘filters’ rarely ever seem to ensnare hateful Democrat rhetoric.
But, what ties all of this together is that everyone running Twitter is a far-leftist ideologue. Jack Dorsey, the founder of Twitter, gave millions to anti-Trump and pro-establishment pro-illegal immigration causes:
“Twitter CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey also donates only to Democrats. And in 2017, he and executive chairman Omid Kordestani together donated $530,000 to the ACLU to fight Trump’s executive order imposing a temporary travel ban on immigrants from high-risk Muslim countries, which Dorsey called “upsetting” but which the Supreme Court recently ruled constitutional. All told, Twitter gave $1.6 million to the anti-Trump ban effort.”
It isn’t just the leftist ACLU that Kordestani supports:
“Kordestani is a big Democrat donor, contributing the maximums to Clinton and Obama, as well as to former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. In 2011, moreover, the Tehran-born exec gave $35,800 to the Obama Victory Fund and another $30,800 to the Democratic National Committee.”
The CFO also got in on the anti-Trump pro-Democrat action:
“Also snubbing Republicans is Twitter Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal, who has given exclusively to Democrats, including several thousands of dollars to Obama and former presidential candidate John Kerry. Segal has also contributed to DNC coffers.”
Other prominent members of the Twitter army are also major anti-Trump donors and tied to George Soros:
“Then there’s former Twitter CEO, current board director and major stakeholder Evan Williams. He’s shelled out more than $600,000 for the Democratic Party and Democrats running for federal office, FEC records show. Meantime, he has stiffed Republicans and the GOP.
What’s more, Williams in the past two presidential races pumped an additional $750,000 into Priorities USA Action — the largest Democratic Party super PAC — which contributes to leftist groups to help them turn out the vote for Democrats. Priorities USA is heavily funded by billionaire Trump-hater George Soros.
As one of Twitter’s largest investors, Williams has a lot of clout on the board. SEC records show that among Twitter officers and directors, Williams holds the largest stake — almost 4 percent — in the publicly traded company.”
Studies completed by AI and search engine expert, Richard Epstein showed that search engines and social media can–and have–manipulated elections by very large percentages. In a documentary he made discussing his research called The Creepy Line, Epstein also warned that tech giants like Twitter would be much more invasive in effecting the results and turnout of the 2020 election (and all future global elections) than ever before.
