The Twitter – Facebook Hunter Biden Blackout Explained
By now most conservatives are aware that Twitter and Facebook shut down links to an article
in the New York Post exposing the corruption of Joe Biden and his son Hunter. The article, and more to come, were based on email traffic and other material obtained from a laptop computer Hunter Biden dropped-off at a Delaware computer shop in April 2019 and never paid for and retrieved.
Facebook placed restrictions on linking to the article, saying there were questions about its validity. “This is part of our standard process to reduce the spread of misinformation,” said a Facebook spokesperson, Andy Stone, who was previously employed by a variety of Democratic Party officials and political committees.
Twitter blocked users from posting links to the Post story or photos from the report. According to the UK’s Guardian, users attempting to share the story were shown a notice saying: “We can’t complete this request because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful.” Users clicking or retweeting a link already posted to Twitter are shown a warning the “link may be unsafe”.
The first assumption made by most observers was that this was an effort to save Joe Biden’s fading campaign for President – and the initial Indian signs seemed to bear that out:
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s personal Twitter account was locked and banned.
The Trump campaign’s official Twitter account was locked.
Major Trump-supporting influencers, such as James Woods, had their Twitter accounts locked.
Republican elected officials who attempted to tweet the article also had their tweets blocked.
As the story morphed from protecting Joe and Hunter Biden to online censorship and big tech’s Section 230 immunity Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey stepped in and said the company did a poor job of communicating and the blocks, bans and freezes came off.
So, was the unprecedented social media effort to stifle the New York Post’s Hunter Biden expose all about saving Joe Biden’s presidential campaign?
Allow us to propose an alternative theory that is a lot bigger than the misdeeds of Biden’s drug-addled miscreant son.
As we have explained in a number of articles, especially Unconventional Warfare – The Democrat Plan To Oust Trump, Democrats are planning a coup, and win or lose, they are planning to make sure there is no second term for Donald Trump.
And information warfare is an essential part of their plan.
Facebook and Twitter have both announced steps to rein in candidates or campaign accounts that claim victory before final election results are in. In those cases, Facebook said, it will tack on a label that sends readers to authoritative election results, from either Reuters or the National Election Pool.
The company will also limit the ability to forward content on its Messenger platform in hopes of "reducing the risk of misinformation and harmful content going viral," Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said.
Notice that the social media giants are not planning on sending users to official government election results, but to “authoritative” media sources – the same media sources that have spent three years promoting the Russia collusion hoax, and that have consistently labeled President Trump illegitimate and a dictator and are right now running seriously flawed polls showing Joe Biden running away with the election.
All of that and other disinformation is intended to set-up the narrative that Joe Biden is the inevitable winner and that if Donald Trump is the victor on Election Night, it is because of vote fraud, and Democrats must be allowed unlimited time to find the votes necessary to overturn the election, and if Joe Biden looks like the winner on Election Night, no one can question the results.
This policy by the social media giants will also give cover and justification to the massive protests – in the style of the Eastern European “color revolutions” – Democrats plan to deploy in Washington, DC and other key locations to promote the Far Left narrative that any Trump victory is, by definition, illegitimate.
By throttling the New York Post expose on Hunter Biden’s corruption Twitter and Facebook may have made a multi-million dollar in-kind contribution to the Joe Biden presidential campaign, but their larger contribution was in the proof of concept for the information blackout they intend to impose to assist the coming post-election “color revolution” Democrats are planning.
