In a recent interview, Twitter CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey finally admitted what most engaged conservatives who use his social media platform have known for months, if not longer: The company’s got a real liberal bent to it.
As Breitbart News reported, Dorsey said during an interview with CNN’s ‘media analyst,’ the never impressive Brian Stelter, that his company was “more Left-leaning.”
“We need to constantly show that we are not adding our own bias, which I fully admit is left, is more left-leaning,” Dorsey said. “And I think it’s important to articulate our bias, and to share it with people so that people understand us, but we need to remove all bias from how we act, and our policies, and our enforcement.”
While that moment of honesty was long overdue, Dorsey then went onto to tell this whopper:
But the real question behind the question is, are we doing something according to political ideology and viewpoints? And we are not. Period.
"We do not look at content with regards to political viewpoint or ideology," @Jack told me. But he knows some people do not believe him. "I think we need to constantly show that we are not adding our own bias, which I fully admit is left, is more left-leaning," he says… pic.twitter.com/1i8jJunhfz

Hoo, boy. At least he wasn’t hooked up to a lie-detector machine.
Alex Jones of Infowars would certainly disagree with Dorsey, having been banned for an entire week recently over ‘policy violations’ for allegedly ‘inciting violence’ in a Periscope video post.
“We were getting a number of reports around the tweet and the Periscope that the content was inciting violence, which is against our terms of service, and we took action,” Dorsey said.
Only, one stroll through Jones’ video shows that he wasn’t “inciting violence” when he called on Americans to pick up “battle rifles.” He wasn’t telling Americans to launch an armed revolt, he was recommending they arm themselves against the violent Left that is sure to come for us someday soon if current Left-wing violence trends continue.
But I digress. Dorsey also addressed the issue of “shadow banning,” which he says his company broadly defines as “not amplifying particular messages” and “hiding that tweet without” the user/sender “knowing it.”
To be clear, that happens all the time and there is plenty of evidence to prove that it’s political in nature.
As The National Sentinel reported, Jack Dorsey’s platform is shadow banning conservatives and Republican lawmakers, as well as GOP candidates running for office this year:
While Democrats and some RINOs continue to scream “Russian meddling!” ahead of the 2018 midterms, the real threat to our democratic processes and our republic is home-grown.
We already knew that the social media behemoths were censoring and “shadow-banning” conservative, pro-POTUS Trump news and information. We also knew that platforms like Twitter were shadow-banning existing Republican lawmakers.
Now we learn that Twitter is also shadow-banning Republican candidates running for office this year.
A poster at Reddit The Donald revealed that John James, a black GOP “star” (POTUS Trump’s words) candidate for the U.S. Senate from Michigan, has been shadow banned from Twitter, according to a special app that has been developed to detect it. (Related: Democrat memo demands complete takeover of the internet, total censorship of political opponents.)
One respondent to the post claimed that GOP Senate candidate Kelli Ward, who’s running for retiring RINO and NeverTrumper Sen. Jeff Flake’s seat, is also being shadow banned. So, too, is California’s Ron Bassilian, who’s running for the U.S. House.
Again, sitting Republican lawmakers are also being subjected to Twitter’s special form of select censorship that Jack Dorsey claims isn’t happening. The Gateway Pundit reports that censored Republicans include Reps. Matt Gaetz of Florida, Devin Nunes of California, Mark Meadows of North Carolina, Jim Jordan of Ohio, and John Radcliffe of Texas.
Gaetz is so upset about it he’s filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission, claiming the shadow ban amounts to handing an unfair advantage to his Democratic opponent.
Dorsey is gaslighting Americans with this nonsensical claim that his “left-leaning” platform isn’t making political determinations regarding who to censor and who to promote.
