Joe Biden and his handlers never wanted to let these documents see the light of day.
But now they are public.
And that’s because a shocking lawsuit exposed the massive smoking gun that caught Joe Biden red-handed breaking the law.
As Conservative Revival reports:
Big Tech’s censorship of conservatives escalated to a new level.
Liberals say Twitter and Facebook are free to censor conservatives as they please due to the fact that they are private companies.
But a lawsuit by journalist Alex Berenson exposed the shell game the left plays with online censorship and how it violates the First Amendment.
In the spring of 2021 reports indicated the Biden administration created an enemies list of individuals on social media who spread so-called “misinformation” about the COVID vaccine.
The Biden administration then pressured Big Tech to censor and ban these accounts from their platform.
Berenson was one of those individuals targeted by the Biden administration due to the fact that Berenson posted facts and data about the vaccine that contradicted the administration’s narrative.
Twitter promptly banned Berenson leading to Berenson filing a lawsuit against Twitter.
In a shocking development, Twitter settled the lawsuit and reinstated Berenson’s account.
One of the reasons Berenson emerged victorious was the fact that his legal team obtained documents through the discovery process where Biden administration official Andy Slavitt pressured Twitter to ban Berenson.
Berenson wrote on his substack:
Andrew Slavitt, senior advisor to President Biden’s Covid response team, complained specifically about me, according to a Twitter employee in another Slack conversation discussing the White House meeting.
“They really wanted to know about Alex Berenson,” the employee wrote. “Andy Slavitt suggested they had seen data viz [visualization] that had showed he was the epicenter of disinfo that radiated outwards to the persuadable public.”
According to an interview he gave to the Washington Post in June 2021, Slavitt worked directly with the most powerful officials in the federal government, including Ron Klain, President Biden’s chief of staff, and Biden himself.
The Slack conversations also show the pressure Twitter employees felt internally to respond to the government’s questions about whether the company was doing enough to suppress “misinformation” about Covid and the vaccines. An employee writes that the questions at the meeting were “pointed” but “mercifully, we had answers.”
When private entities take action at the behest of the government, they are now agents of the state and thus fall under Constitutional limitations.
Twitter banning Berenson under pressure from the Biden administration is a First Amendment violation of Berenson’s right to free speech.
Big Tech’s censorship of conservatives began in 2017 after a pressure campaign by the corporate media blaming Donald Trump’s ability to freely post on social media for Hillary Clinton’s defeat.
Social media censorship subsequently grew more brazen culminating with Facebook and Twitter helping to rig the 2020 election in Joe Biden’s favor by censoring the New York Post’s story about the emails on Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Every Big Tech platform then banned Donald Trump after the events of January 6.
Berenson’s lawsuit was the first successful attempt to push back against the left’s social media censorship regime.
