Executive action was actually planned this week, but has been shelved

The looming executive action to address big tech ’s recent censorship of conservative voices is now being blocked by Trump administration insiders, who have seemingly convinced the President to place the issue aside, according to an Infowars report.

A source close to the Trump administration claimed that executive action was actually planned this week, but is being shelved due to older 'tech ignorant' Trump insiders not understanding the severity of the issue.

People within Trump’s inner circle no the threat of social media censorship has on the mid-terms and his chance of re-election, including Donald Trump Jr. and Brad Parscale, his 2020 campaign manager.

According to ZH: However, older members of the administration are completely unaware of the fact that banning prominent online voices and manipulating algorithms can shift millions of votes and are oblivious to the danger.

This ignorance has placed a temporary block on Trump taking action, despite the president repeatedly referring to Big Tech censorship in tweets and speeches over the last few weeks. – Infowars

President Trump has indeed been vocal against the censorship of conservatives on social media platforms such as Facebook in Twitter.

“Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices. Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won’t let that happen. They are closing down the opinions of many people on the RIGHT, while at the same time doing nothing to others,” Trump tweeted in mid-August following the de-platforming of Infowars’ Alex Jones and other pundits on Twitter and other social media outlets.

Trump also told his supporters during a recent rally in Indiana that “we will not let large corporations silence conservative voices.”

“You look at Google, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media giants and I made it clear that we as a country cannot tolerate political censorship, blacklisting, and rigged search results,” he said.

The report of insiders stifling a Trump effort to executively go after big tech comes in the wake of the now infamous NYT’s anonymous op-ed in which an apparent senior White House official claims to be “working diligently from within to frustrate parts of (the president’s) agenda and his worst inclinations.”

With Jack Dorsey’s admission that Twitter “unfairly” shadowbanned some 600,000 twitter accounts, including some members of Congress, many are now frightened that a slide down the slippery slope of censorship is well under way.

The Infowars report paints a grim picture of what this slope could and is looking like:

If tech monopolies are not stopped in their effort to purge conservatives from social media, the next step is that the left will lobby to have their political adversaries blocked from being able to engage in commerce and use payment processing systems, which already happened in the case of Islam critic Robert Spencer when Mastercard lobbied to have Spencer removed from Patreon and GoFundMe.
