Democrats are winning the social media battle. The social media battle started some time ago, but has ramped up in the past year. From the banning of accounts to the complaints about lies, the battle continues to rage. Democrats have successfully won the “woke” battle up to this point.
A lot of conservative outlets have issues with social media. Steven Crowder was demonetized on YouTube for statements. PragerU has taken legal action against Google and YouTube for discrimination against conservatives. We have also had issues with YouTube banning our channel. We have finally found a workaround, but it still is an issue.
Democrats continue the war on social media content through attacks on President Trump. The left has argued for social media to fact check and assure that statements made by conservatives is true. For example, a recent Trump ad came into question as Democrats said it was incorrect. Yet, who decides which political side is correct?
The left has also called for the silencing of President Trump’s Twitter account. Kamala Harris suggested that Twitter should ban President Trump for weaponizing his Twitter account. Twitter argued that it kept Trump’s tweets due to public value, but this leaves public value up to debate.
The left will argue that any conservative outlets have no public value. Conservatives have been silenced in main stream media, as only a leftist viewpoint is presented on the major news outlets. So conservatives seek their truth online, through social media or outlets such as The Liberty Loft. The reach of these outlets will soon be diminished as well.
Twitter announced that it will no longer accept political ads starting in November. There has been increasing pressure on Facebook to take a similar stance to what the left has called “fake ads.” Conservative ads are not fake, but represent an alternative viewpoint. The left does not like an alternative, as they want to force their way on everyone.
The inability for conservative viewpoints to advertise their opinion for consideration is a means to silence conservative views. As a liberal, you can access liberal news easily on TV or on any major news channel website. Want to hear conservative news, good luck as you will be left to manually search for it.
The problem will only get worse as Google continues to rank conservative sites lower and lower, or ban them altogether. Now more than ever, conservatives need to stand up and speak out. Conservatives must seek out conservative outlets and share the information as much as possible. Websites, such as ours, will rely more heavily on the sharing of information by those who follow us.
