Donald Trump Jr. May Have Solution for Liberal Bias on Social Media. Here’s His Idea.

Published

One of the biggest problems facing conservative news outlets right now is the obvious liberal bias that seems to be floating around a lot of the major players in the business.

These companies are no longer really just social networking platforms. They are now large parts of the dissemination of information, meaning that the vast majority of folks now get their news off social media sites, so when these sites put a muzzle on conservatives sites, that’s a whole different perspective that’s not being represented.

Well, Donald Trump Jr. might just have a solution for the problem.

In a statement to Axios, Trump Jr. said that he would back a “conservative, Facebook-like social network” if it were created to compete with Facebook and other social media platforms.

Mike Allen of Axios tried to get Trump Jr. to consider the possibility of using the resources of President Donald Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign to create the alternate platform, but he called for others to create it.

“I’d love to do it,” Trump Jr. said. “But what I would prefer is, take one of the two Silicon Valley conservatives and let them start it. And then I’d help promote the platform and be all over that.”

Trump Jr. has over 3 million followers on Twitter, and over 1.3 million followers on Instagram.

Allen called the idea of “tribal news delivered via tribal pipes” a “scary thought,” and added that a Trump adviser told him to consider the possibility of the president using his Twitter presence to help publicize such a right-wing social media forum.

This discussion comes hot on the heels of President Trump making some rather hard remarks toward Facebook, Twitter, and Google for the suppression of conservative voices on their platforms.

It’s more critical now than ever for conservatives to stand up boldly for the right of free speech and for their voices to be heard across these large platforms.

If only one side of the story, one perspective, is presented then people could be easily misled by those who have something to gain by spreading lies and deceit, especially since that seems to be the majority of liberal progressives on the political scene right now.

Let’s hope something is done about this mess and that all voices are given a platform to be heard.

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

WATCH: NC Man Slings Rabid Bobcat Across His Front Yard

WOW!

For many North Carolinians, neighborhood living brings with it the peace of mind that the most invasive animals you might have to deal with are squirrels who are trying to rest in your attic, or raccoons hoping to fatten up from your trash can.  The Tar Heel state has some bears, sure, but they’re not often the pestering or dangerous type like you might see in the Pacific Northwest or parts of California. But one man this week got up close and personal with a seriously frightening creature this week, after it lunged at his wife from underneath their car. A disturbing video captures the moment a rabid bobcat attacks a North Carolina woman—and the moment her husband grabs it off her and throws it through the air. Kristi and Happy Wade of Burgaw were walking to their SUV to take their cat to the vet the morning of April 9 when the growling animal ran across the street and attacked, WIS-TVreports. After throwing it several feet, Happy Wade eventually shot it after it ran into the couple’s garage and then continued to charge, ABC 11 reports. A neighbor who had been jogging by at the time stopped to help and called 911. Video of the incident is simply unbelievable. https://twitter.com/nojumper/status/1383145940807163904?s=20 The bobcat was injured by Wade and later euthanized by local law enforcement.  An autopsy revealed that the animal was indeed rabid, and the family has been undergoing treatment for their numerous bite wounds.
