Sean Hannity ripped the Democratic Party’s ongoing efforts to silence conservative voices Wednesday night; saying far-left statists have zero respect for “freedom of speech or expression.”
“There is a completely false perception that Democrats actually value freedom. Nothing can be further from the truth,” said Hannity. “Today’s radical Democratic Party is filled with leftists, statists, they don’t want any freedom of speech or expression.”
“They want to completely silence all opposition and cancel anyone that offends them. They applaud the efforts of Big Tech to censor conservatives… Democrats are leading the calls against a few of us and would like us all boycotted,” he added.

CRUZ: ‘Silicon Valley Billionaires’ and ‘Big Tech’ Are ‘Using Power to Silence Dissent’
Texas Senator Ted Cruz ripped “Big Tech” and their ongoing campaign against free speech on the internet this week; saying they seek to be the “sole arbiter of truth” and are using “power to silence dissent.”
“Empowering self-proclaimed ‘fact checkers’ and leftist Silicon Valley billionaires to dictate what is ‘misleading,’ only confirms what the American people already know to be true: Big Tech is designating itself to be the sole arbiter of truth and is using its power to silence dissent,” Cruz told Fox News.
“I’m all for freedom of speech and expression,” Sen. Ron Johnson said. “I just wish Twitter was.”
“Twitter has long acted unilaterally to decide what content is and is not valid and factual,” Rep. Comer told Fox News. “Only time will tell if Birdwatch is successful in having a positive impact on a platform known for silencing conservatives or if this community-driven effort will end up stifling free speech the way Twitter has done in the recent past.”

ANTI-SOCIAL MEDIA: Google Engineer Says He Was Fired, Blacklisted for ‘Conservative Views’
A former Google employee accused the technology company of terminating his position over his “conservative views” this week, saying the media giant routinely censors their employees and their political opinions.
“Kevin Cernekee was still a ‘Noogler’—Google’s term for a new employee—when his conservative take on political and social issues raised hackles within the search giant,” reports the Wall Street Journal.
“After several posts on the company’s freewheeling internal message boards in early 2015 rankled some colleagues, he was given an official warning from human resources about conduct deemed disrespectful and insubordinate. Around that time, a senior manager wrote on the boards that he added Mr. Cernekee to a ‘written blacklist’ of employees he wouldn’t work with,” adds the WSJ.
“Historically, there’s been a lot of bullying at Google,” Cernekee said. “There’s a big political angle, and they treat the two sides very differently.”
Another software engineer at Google blew the whistle on the company’s political bias last week; telling Project Veritas the giant corporation censors conservatives and has largely “merged” with the Democratic Party.

“I’m a senior software engineer. I work on artificial intelligence and the Google assistant. I’m very concerned to see big tech and the big media merge basically with the Democratic Party… I know how algorithms are, they don’t write themselves. They do what we want them to do,” said the Whistle blower.
“I see Google executives go to Congress and say that it’s not manipulated. It’s not political. I’m just so sure that’s not true… For a while we had tech that was politically neutral. Now we have tech that is taking sides,” he added.
