Star Parker: Liberals Use Social Media to Shut Down Conservative Voices
August 5, 2022
CURE Founder and President Star Parker, contributing a segment for Straight Arrow News discussing how users of social media — including tech companies — are threatening Americans’ right to free speech by silencing conservative voices.
It’s why you saw President Donald Trump banned from Twitter, but not leaders of the Taliban as they retook Afghanistan last year. Being able to use Twitter to spread propaganda was an incredibly useful and strategic tool in the Taliban’s path to power.
Meanwhile, so many liberals continue to play the game of shutting down voices they don’t agree with. According to a Cato Institute/YouGov national survey late last year, liberals are nearly three times more likely than conservatives to say that they have reported another user to a social media company for sharing offensive content or false information.
