"I’ll just cut to the chase: Big Tech’s out to get conservatives," Jordan said. <blockquote>REP. JIM JORDAN: That's not a suspicion. Not a hunch. That's a fact. July 20th, 2020, Google removed the home pages of Breitbart and the Daily Caller. Last night we learned Google has censored Breitbart so much that traffic has declined 99%. June 16, 2020, Google threatened to demonetize The Federalist. April 19th, 2020, Google and YouTube announced a policy censoring content that conflicts with recommendations of the World Health Organization. Think about that. World Health Organization. An organization that lied to us. The organization that chilled for China, and if you contradict something they say, they can say whatever they want. They can lie for China. They can shill for China. You say something against them, you get censored. June 29th, 2020, Amazon bans President Trump's account on Twitch after he raised concerns about defunding the police. June 4th, 2020, Amazon bans a book critical of the coronavirus lockdowns written by a conservative commentator. May 27th, 2020, Amazon Smile won't let you give to the give to the Family Research Council, but you can give to Planned Parenthood. Facebook, June 19th, 2020, takes down posts from Trump's re-election campaign. Nov. 1, 2018, Facebook silences a pro-life advertisement. May 19th, 2020, former Facebook employees admit facebook routinely suppresses conservative views. I haven't mentioned Twitter. Who we invited. I asked for you guys to invite them as a witness. You guys said no, I haven't mentioned them two years ago they shadowbanned two members of this committee. Four members of Congress were shadowed two years ago. Out of 435 in the House, only four. Only four. Gates, Meadows, Nunes, Jordan, get shadowbanned. What did Mr. Dorsey tell us? It was just a glitch in our algorithm. What did you put in the algorithm, the names Gates, Meadows, Nunes, and Jordan? ... We've heard that excuse time and time again. On May 28th, they censored President Trump's tweets about the riots in Minneapolis. Twitter censors the White House account for quoting the president's comments about the riots in Minneapolis. June 23, 2020, Twitter censors the president again for saying he would not allow an autonomous zone in Washington D.C. You can tweet all you want about the autonomous zone that happened in Seattle, but the president tweets he's going to have one in Washington, D.C., oh, no, you can't do that. You get banned. Censored. Dozens of examples. I forgot one. I forgot one. Just last week, July 21st. July 21st on Twitter. The leader of Iran, Islamic Republic of Iran, the largest state sponsor of terrorism. Twitter allows this tweet. Quote, "The Islamic Republic of Iran will never forget the martyrdom of Soleimani and will definitely strike a blow in the United States." So you can threaten the citizens of this great country, the leader of the largest state sponsor of terrorism, that's just fine, but oh, the president says he's not going to allow some autonomous zone in D.C. and he gets censored. All kinds of examples.</blockquote>
