(Tea Party 247) – President Trump is sending a message loud and clear to giant tech companies who might be unlawfully hindering competition in the marketplace thanks to an anti-trust probe that has been launched by the Department of Justice.
The review will “go above and beyond” to take a deeper look at business practices of giant companies like Facebook, Google, Alphabet Inc., Amazon, and Apple. Gee, just so happens a number of these companies have also been playing a significant role in the silencing of conservative voices looking to use their platforms to share their message and engage with hot topics of the day.
Here’s more from Infowars:
“The Justice Department will examine issues including how the most dominant tech firms have grown in size and might—and expanded their reach into additional businesses,” DoJ officials told the WSJ Tuesday. “The Justice Department also is interested in how Big Tech has leveraged the powers that come with having very large networks of users.”
“There is no defined end-goal yet for the Big Tech review other than to understand whether there are anti-trust problems that need addressing, but a broad range of options are on the table,” added the officials. “The department’s inquiry could eventually lead to more focused investigations of specific company conduct.”
This “broad range” approach is setting the stage for investigators to examine all company practices, not just ones relevant to anti-trust issues.
“The [DOJ] won’t ignore other company practices that may raise concerns about compliance with other laws,” said DOJ officials.
Big Tech companies have been flexing a lot of muscle lately against folks who aren’t on board with the progressive agenda they’re helping to push, allowing themselves to strictly become a propaganda arm of the radical left rather than tools that can be used by all people in a free society.
This kind of investigation is one way to fight back against their uncouth practices. However, conservatives themselves need to strategize and come up with some concrete plan for sending their own message to Facebook and other giant tech companies that they will not take this form of censorship laying down.
No one else is going to stand up for our rights if we don’t take the initiative ourselves. Perhaps leaving platforms like Facebook and using alternatives like Parler is a good place to start? If enough people left the site, perhaps the hit to their bottom line would be big enough for them to see they need conservative users? Then again, maybe not, given how much profit the company currently makes. Regardless, fighting back is no longer just an idea. It’s what has to be done.
Boycotts of certain companies are also an effective strategy, however, some on the list above who are being investigated are so large that they might be able to absorb the loss of a boycott with no problem. So that needs to be taken into account as well.
Here’s to hoping that somehow, some way, these companies hear what we’re all trying to say and decide to truly abide by the principles they claim to live by, allowing folks of all walks of life to openly share their ideas and debate peacefully.
