BIDEN CRIME FAMILY CORRUPTION EXPOSURE CENSORED BY DEMOCRAT TECHNO-FASCISTS

Biden crouchingThe Robber Baron Democrats of Silicon Valley and Social Media continue to abuse their power with their ongoing interference in the 2020 presidential election. Influential people don’t want you to hear about Joe Biden’s meetings with his son’s alleged co-conspirators. Social Media outlets which allow the spread of idiotic conspiracy theories claiming Trump can be tied to kidnapping plots suddenly act like they have standards when it comes to verifiable exposes about the Joe Biden Crime Family.

Senile Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s alleged Influence-Peddling schemes are getting more and more exposure in the news lately so Jack Dorsey at Twitter joined with Democrats at Facebook and elsewhere to smother AND IN SOME CASES SUSPEND accounts trying to share news stories about the ongoing Biden scandals.

Biden blackmailing UkraineThe technofascists do not deserve Section 230 protection as they have proven over and over and over again that they abuse their power to shut out information and opinions that don’t align with the views of privileged one percenters like Jack Dorsey. Even though Dorsey has admitted it was “unacceptable” to censor the reports about the Biden-Burisma corruption scandals, too much damage has already been done.

Here’s Balladeer’s Blog’s reminder from earlier this year about how the modern-day Robber Barons like Dorsey and his ilk are even worse than the 19th Century Robber Barons. It was titled:

PUCK: ROBBER BARONS THEN AND SILICON VALLEY ROBBER BARONS NOW

TECHNOFASCISTS LIKE JACK DORSEY AT TWITTER ARE GARBAGE.

Here is a February 23rd, 1881 Keppler political cartoon depicting Jay Gould, the telegraph monopolist, and Cornelius Vanderbilt the railroad baron.

The point of the cartoon is the way those two Robber Barons – allied with like-minded newspaper tycoons (whose newspapers’ names are on the bonds around Uncle Sam) – abused their wealth and political influence to bind the United States (represented here by Uncle Sam) to their will.

Joseph Keppler was outraged at the power so unethically wielded by such figures to cloak themselves in righteous, philanthropic public images while in reality they – in Keppler’s words – clutched “the United States and all its institutions by the throat.”

Creepy LineThis is similar to the way the Silicon Valley and Social Media Robber Barons of today cloak themselves in “socially conscious” public images while in reality clutching the United States and all its institutions by the throat. Continue reading

TECHNO-FASCISTS OF SILICON VALLEY STRIKE AGAIN

Jack DorseyPrivileged white one-percenter and capitalist scumbag Jack Dorsey of Twitter (right) is just one of the Techno-Tyrants or Techno-Fascists who have been abusing their influence to the degree where breaking up their monopolies or suing them for being publishers and not platforms are two options that keep getting discussed … and with good reason. 

For right now here’s an appropriate rerun of my 2018 blog post DYSTOPIA NATION: TECHNO-TYRANTS OF SILICON VALLEY – 

Mascot sword and pistolTHE TECHNO-TYRANTS OF SILICON VALLEY – The modern-day versions of the disgusting old Robber Barons might well be the corporate fascists aka techno-fascists in assorted tech industries, not just regarding Silicon Valley but also  privacy-violating rich pigs at Facebook and elsewhere.

In fact, you could make the case that people like Mark “Skippy” Zuckerberg and his fellow corporate fascists are even worse since I don’t recall bloated rich pigs like E.H. Harriman or Cornelius Vanderbilt trying to police other people’s every thought, word and deed. The invasive and ever-expanding tentacular reach of techno-fascists or in this fictional case Techno-Tyrants would make these villains a very credible threat to political freedom and freedom of expression.

Freedom of expression amnesty internationalIn recent years outfits like Twitter, Facebook and others even made public noises about banning customers based on their conduct UNRELATED TO THOSE UTILITIES! Can you imagine the old, old Ma Bell monopoly cutting off people’s phone service because their operators caught those users discussing voting for political candidates disapproved of by Ma Bell’s upper echelons or expressing opinions frowned upon by Ma Bell?

Even worse, places like Google and others have made it firing offenses to be caught holding opinions at odds with the one percenters and bloated rich pigs who run those tech-related outfits. Continue reading
