(RepublicanNews.org) – Big tech companies throttling conservative voices is nothing new. They’ve been doing it since the rise of the internet and social media. However, their efforts took on a new dimension in recent months.
Facebook head Mark Zuckerberg revealed just how bad things had become while testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee in November 2020. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) grilled him during the hearing, forcing Zuckerberg to admit to coordinating censorship efforts with Google and Twitter.
As if things weren’t bad enough already, cancel culture reared its ugly head in the wake of the January 6 storming of the US Capitol Building. Twitter permanently suspended Donald Trump’s account along with several other Conservatives. Facebook quickly followed suit issuing an indefinite suspension on Trump’s account that remains to this day.
Big tech launched what appeared to be a well-organized attack on Conservative Twitter alternative Parler with Apple and Google removing its app from their store and Amazon canceling its hosting.
Now it seems Twitter may have a conflict of interest brewing.
Anthony Fauci’s Daughter Takes Center Stage
As it turns out, Dr. Anthony Fauci’s daughter, Alison Fauci, has been working for Twitter as a software engineer since graduating from college in 2014. Dr. Fauci spends his days leading the Biden administration’s COVID-19 response.
At the same time, his daughter spends her days supporting one of the overlords of the internet and master of online censorship, Mr. Jack Dorsey, the proud co-founder and CEO of Twitter, Inc.
A quick review of her LinkedIn profile (recently scrubbed) and Twitter account seems harmless enough. She tweets about technical issues like “smooth timeline scrolling” on Twitter’s Android app (available online, unlike the Parler app).
However, considering her father’s position, her employment with Twitter raises serious concerns regarding potential conflicts of interest. Twitter maintains a zero-tolerance policy for any posts about COVID-19 it considers to be false. However, like Facebook and other big-tech companies, there is no transparency into exactly how those determinations are made.
Perhaps it’s time for one of the Fauci’s to step down. Who do you think it should be? Inquiring minds want to know.
