After the most corrupt presidential contender in modern history – Democrat Hillary Clinton – was soundly defeated in 2016 by POTUS Donald Trump, the Left, angry and bitter and feeling as though victory had been stolen from them, vowed to steal power back.
In January 2017, before then-President-elect Trump was even inaugurated, Leftist operatives began plotting the Democratic Party’s comeback (revenge?), and one of the foremost Left-wing operatives – former ‘conservative’ David Brock, founder of the George Soros-funded Media Matters – laid out a diabolical plan that involved colluding with biggest social media platforms including Facebook.
The four-year plan, outlined in a confidential memo written by Brock and obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, was the result of a secret conclave hosted by the operative and longtime Clinton associate with more than 100 donors at a “swanky” venue in Aventura, Fla. (because even socialist Democrats like ‘swank’). The plan serves as a roadmap for Democrats seeking to “kick Donald Trump’s a**” in 2020.
As the WFB notes, the memo – “Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action” – is an agenda to not only attack Republicans in general, but POTUS Trump in particular using various Left-wing organs like Media Matters, American Bridge, Shareblue, and the inappropriately-named Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW).
In particular, the memo “contains plans for defeating Trump through impeachment, expanding Media Matters’ mission to combat ‘government misinformation,’ ensuring Democratic control of the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections, filing lawsuits against the Trump administration, monetizing political advocacy, using a ‘digital attacker’ to delegitimize Trump’s presidency and attack Republicans, and partnering with Facebook to combat ‘fake news,’” the WFB reported.
It’s that last part about Facebook that is particularly noteworthy. (Related: Here’s how DEMS plan to shut out all conservative voices from social media like the Nazis burned books.)
As The Gateway Pundit reports, the Brock memo claims that Media Matters and other far-Left organizations were given “access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites” so his organization can “systematically monitor and analyze this unfiltered data.”
Monitor data, most likely, without getting users’ permission first (now you know why the Leftist bruhaha over Cambridge Analytica’s support for Trump’s campaign – which was nothing compared to support Facebook gave President Obama and Media Matters so angered the Opposition Party; only the Left gets to steal Facebook and social media data).
In putting these two facts together – the plan to attack Republicans and Trump-supporting conservatives and the use of social media giants to censor ‘fake news’– it becomes clear that the Brock plan is right on schedule, and ahead of the 2018 midterms, as planned.
As we’ve been reporting, conservative media has been under censorship and shadow banning restrictions for months. Beginning in late fall/early spring, sites like The Gateway Pundit, Infowars, Natural News, and several other influential independent media sites all reported dramatic drops in referral traffic from the major social media platforms.
When confronted about the drop-off in traffic, these sites were all told that it was the result of “algorithm changes” the platforms had made. But further research by TGP and other right-leaning voices like The Western Journal found that liberal news sites were not being subjected to the same “algorithm changes.”
What’s more, platforms like Facebook have recently added “fact-checkers” – mainly from far-Left sources – which makes censorship of so-called ‘fake news’ from conservative sites seem legitimate.
It’s anything but.
The censorship and shadow banning has since been extended to sitting Republican lawmakers and GOP congressional candidates, The National Sentinel reported this week.
One lawmaker – GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida – has filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission. But that investigation will take time. The best way around this blatant censorship and power grab is to disengage from the corrupted platforms altogether.
Meantime, they’re cruising to be regulated by the Trump administration. Brock’s “plan” makes it clear that day has come.
