Facebook and Twitter Deplatform iVote 15 Days Before Georgia Runoff
(Washington, DC) - The January 5, run-off election in Georgia is one of the most critical senate races in recent history. The race, in a state sending dueling presidential electors to Washington, will determine if Democrats hold majorities in both chambers of congress and the presidency this coming year.
Ahead of the hotly contested race, social media companies are cracking down on their conservative opposition.
iVote Founder and CEO Chuck Kirkpatrick stated,
"Twitter has suspended our account with no notice or reason, Facebook said our Press Release and election integrity posts violate their community standards, and our emails were flagged as spam."
The company recently released the Election Participation Audit, an oversight system that indicates if your cast ballot was counted in state totals. But their debut was cut short by what is seen as pro-fraud policies emanating from Silicon Valley.
Twitter and Facebook aren’t the only tech giants clamping down free speech. On December 9, YouTube’s official blog posted:
“We will start removing any piece of content uploaded today (or anytime after) that misleads people by alleging that widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential election, in line with our approach towards historical U.S. Presidential elections.”
"This is exactly why MakingAmericaRight.com’s iVote project is necessary. Social media companies ignore section 230, and policy makers’ political biases are tilting the scales to favor one political party over another. We need vote checks now more than ever. The only thing we're trying to do is secure elections."
