Senate hearings tend to be a bit ridiculous. However, we did not expect Jack Dorsey to have such a hard time with his. He wasn’t able to answer very basic questions. He was asked about his policies when it comes to removing dubious information from Twitter. Some information is allowed to stay up, while Dorsey takes down other posts without a second thought.
Twitter has been doing everything in their power to suppress any and all information that will not be helpful to Joe Biden. The Hunter Biden laptop scandal can barely be discussed on there. This is our primary critique of the social media platform. They do not allow for a fair and even exchange of information.
They’ve been appending advisories to propaganda that is being posted by world leaders that they deem worthy of such treatment. It does not take a rocket scientist to know exactly who we are talking about. When Trump tweets craziness about the veracity of mail-in balloting, they are right there waiting. When Democrats engage in similar behaviors?
Dorsey and his cronies are not as quick to do anything about it. The Chinese government will tweet about the virus being caused by Americans. If we are lucky, they get around to dealing with that within a few weeks. They flag Trump tweets the fastest and anyone else who gets flagged is just part of their scheme to appear evenhanded.
Vicious anti-Semitic lies are not taken down nearly as quickly as Trump tweets. Near as we can tell, the stories that affect the Democrats’ chances in the upcoming election are the only ones that they feel obligated to get rid of. The RNCResearch page shared videos of the hearing on Twitter. We are sure that Jack will be having those taken down as soon as possible.
You are going to want to see them before that happens! Everyone is wondering why Dorsey did not take the time to prepare for the hearing. Perhaps he believes that his Democrat pals will keep him safe from any sort of long term legal issue. When Jack was asked about his refusal to allow the New York Post back into their account, he had no real answer for anyone about the matter.
Supposedly, they can simply delete their initial tweets and they would be good to go. If they are willing to do that, they can also post the new Twitter policy. Jack claims that it is truly this easy but we have a lot of doubts. If it is okay for the Post to go back to tweeting, what is the hold-up? They claim that it is okay to tweet about the Post’s story right now but Ted Cruz was having problems as recently as yesterday.
“What @jack told the Senate, under oath, is false. I just tried to tweet the @nypost story alleging Biden’s CCP corruption. Still blocked. 18 USC 1621 makes it a felony to lie under oath to the Senate,” said Cruz. After the hearing, the problem was magically fixed. It’s funny how that works, isn’t it?
Dorsey claimed that Twitter does not have the power to alter elections. On the other hand, his site is now taking major steps to make it easier for users to learn more about disinformation. It’s mighty convenient. The grandstanding was ridiculous on all sides. Even Ted Cruz could not resist taking the opportunity to chew some scenery, in a manner that only he can.
Josh Hawley summed all of this up better than we ever could. “This level of idiocy confirms the widespread impression that Jack’s primary food source is weed,” he tweeted. It’s hard to disagree. Unfortunately, Jack can do whatever he wants with his website. He’s immoral, they are a bunch of grifters and all decorum is out the window. This is the future that the liberals wanted and now they are finally getting real about it.
