Potential executive action to address the widespread Big Tech deplatforming and censorship of prominent conservative voices is being stymied by administration insiders who are oblivious to the threat and have convinced President Trump to put the issue on the back burner.
Infowars reports from a source close to the administration that executive action on the matter was planned as soon as this week, but that it has likely been delayed yet again.
Several people within Trump’s inner circle know the threat to the mid-terms and his re-election chances that social media censorship poses, including Donald Trump Jr. and Brad Parscale, his 2020 campaign manager.
However, older members of the administration are completely unaware of the fact that banning prominent online voices and manipulating algorithms can shift millions of votes and are oblivious to the danger.
This ignorance has placed a temporary block on Trump taking action, despite the president repeatedly referring to Big Tech censorship in tweets and speeches over the last few weeks.
A petition calling on the White House and Congress to take action to protect free speech in the digital public square has also received almost 125,000 signatures.
If tech monopolies are not stopped in their effort to purge conservatives from social media, the next step is that the left will lobby to have their political adversaries blocked from being able to engage in commerce and use payment processing systems, which already happened in the case of Islam critic Robert Spencer when Mastercard lobbied to have Spencer removed from Patreon and GoFundMe.
