Background: 20 days before the 2020 Presidential Election Twitter banned a story about Hunter Biden’s laptop, claiming it was Russian misinformation.
Now: After purchasing Twitter, Elon Musk has released internal documents showing how the decision was made to ban the story from being shared, even in direct messages, and ban the account of the New York Post which broke the story.
How it happened: executives hid behind their content moderation policy on banning hacked material, despite no evidence the laptop’s content was hacked. This also does not jibe with their assertions that a general warning from the FBI led them to be on alert for Russian misinformation.
Also revealed: Twitter personnel took direct requests from Biden’s team and the Democratic National Committee to remove and censor certain Tweets, and accounts.
Why this matters:
Bottom Line: The “deep state” or “cabal” is not always Satan-worshipping pedophiles.
Sometimes it’s just a handful of biased Twitter executives who find themselves in the right place at the right time to sway an election.
Go Deeper: The game of “elites” is to control as many power nodes as possible, so they will have the chance to pull levers in situations exactly like these.
