Joe Biden was furious with Tucker Carlson.
And Biden was dead set on getting his revenge.
And Joe Biden got caught red-handed trying to cancel Tucker Carlson.
As Black Eye Politics reports:
Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry revealed an April 14, 2021 email from White House Director of Digital Strategy Rob Flaherty to Facebook demanding the social media platform censor Tucker Carlson for questioning the safety and efficacy of the COVID vaccine.
“Since we’ve been on the phone – the top post about vaccines today is [T]ucker Carlson saying they don’t work. Yesterday it was Tomi Lehren [sic] saying she won’t take one,” Flaherty wrote.
The Facebook employee wrote back that they were “running this down now.”
This did not please Flaherty who wanted to know what actions Facebook took to censor Carlson’s post criticizing Biden’s COVID vaccine policies.
“This is exactly why I want to know what ‘Reduction’ actually looks like – if ‘reduction’ means ‘pumping our most vaccine hesitant audience with [T]ucker Carlson saying it doesn’t work’ then… I’m not sure it’s reduction!” Flaherty added.
Landry exposed this document as part of his and outgoing Missouri Attorney General — and now incoming senator — Eric Schmitt’s lawsuit against the Biden administration for turning the screws on Facebook and Twitter to censor critics of Biden’s COVID mandates and vaccine policies.
Back in the summer of 2021 Biden ranted and raved that Facebook was killing people by allowing users to question the vaccine.
“They’re killing people. … Look, the only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated. And they’re killing people,” Biden declared back in July 2021.
Elon Musk’s Twitter Files showed that the Biden administration successfully pressured Twitter to suspend journalist Alex Berenson for correctly stating that the vaccine was ineffective and posed a risk to Americans.
Schmitt and Landry launched their lawsuit shortly after Jen Psaki admitted that the White House created an enemies list of COVID opponents and demanded Facebook censor their accounts.
“So we’re regularly making sure social media platforms are aware of the latest narratives, dangerous to public health that we and many other Americans are seeing across all of social and traditional media. And we work to engage with them to better understand the enforcement of social media platform policies,” Press Secretary Jen Psaki stated during a July 16, 2021 White House press briefing.
Psaki claimed 12 accounts were responsible for 65 percent of the so-called “misinformation” on Facebook and demanded the platform take immediate action to censor those users.
“All of them remain active on Facebook,” Psaki declared.
Psaki added that Facebook also “needs to move more quickly to remove harmful violative posts.”
This is all illegal.
The government cannot create a backdoor for censorship by pressuring a private entity to act on its behalf to suppress speech the government finds objectionable.
And Attorney General Landy just proved that Tucker Carlson was the target of illegal government censorship.
