WATCH: Democrat Senator Pressures Facebook to Kick Conservatives Off Platform
Democrats truly blow my mind. It’s not just sometimes either. I think it’s fair to say that everything that they do blows my mind in some measure.
Just recently Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey were called to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee once again.
We know how targeted conservatives are on Facebook and Twitter. If you try and challenge the status quo, they’re going to cut you off.
Over the past couple of months, they’ve become even more strict and deleted many conservative pages. Some of the owners I actually know personally.
Nonetheless, you’ve got idiotic Senators like Richard Blumenthal who thinks that Facebook isn’t strict enough on conservatives and actually asked him to ban some conservative pages.
Blumenthal asked Zuckerberg, “Will you commit to taking down that account? Steve Bannon’s account.”
Zuckerberg replied, “Senator, no. That’s not what our policies would suggest that we should do, in this case.”
Blumenthal then asked the Facebook CEO,
“According to the internal records that are on record now, leaked by NBC News, Facebook has removed fact checks and forgiven infractions for conservative pages and pundits such as Breitbart, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, Gateway Pundit based on a fear of accusations of bias. Has Facebook avoided penalizing or fact-checking conservative changes that violated its policies based on concerns of political bias and allegations of bias?”
Zuckerberg replied, “Senator, no. We haven’t done that. And I think that those reports mischaracterize the actions we take. I’m not aware of any instance where we have overturned a fact-check specifically…”

Here is the full back and forth between Zuckerberg and Sen. Blumenthal:
It doesn’t matter at this point. Conservatives are already shifting to other social media platforms like Parler and MeWe in order to escape censorship from the extremely biased social media outlets.
