Republican Senator Ted Cruz released a new video to Fox News on Friday that highlights his recent defense of the American People from censorship on various social media platforms, including Twitter and Facebook, demanding that the massive corporations face consequences for banning protected free speech during an election.
Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously approved subpoenas of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Thursday.
Fox news reported, “Twitter and Facebook have received heavy backlash in recent days over their efforts to suppress explosive New York Post reports detailing emails allegedly found on Hunter Biden’s laptop. The emails suggest impropriety by Hunter in his foreign business dealings while his father, Joe Biden, was vice president. Critics accused the social media giants of election interference in an effort to shield the Democratic nominee.”
Yahoo News reported,”Google is a monopoly that is abusing its power,” @SenTedCruz (R-TX) says. “The amount of power that’s been drawn into Silicon Valley is unprecedented… Big Tech is, I believe, drunk on power. They’re getting more and more brazen.”
“Ted Cruz blasts media for not ‘even pretending to do their job’ on Hunter Biden story,” Fox reported. “Asked by co-host Bret Baier to react to the Bobulinski press conference, Cruz replied that it “was remarkable and…raises serious questions about whether Joe Biden has personally enriched himself, whether he’s been paid millions from communist China and — and the allegation is that he had a secret share potentially in this business deal that Hunter Biden held for him,” Fox news wrote.
The video highlights clips of media coverage sounding the alarm about Big Tech’s threat on a “free press,” invoking comparisons to George Orwell’s novel “1984.”
Cruz started warning about the direction a large centralized government would take us, all the way back in 2013, with a video that made reference to the Orwell classic. (Video at end)
According to a recent book review, one reader described 1984:
"Freedom is the freedom to say two plus two equals four. If that is granted, all else follows." - Winston Smith In 1949, George Orwell completed his masterpiece, a book which would later gain four major film adaptations, and created words such as telescreen, thoughtcrime, and doublethink, which are used and are in today's dictionary: 1984. A true work of genius, as well as my all-time favorite and least favorite novel (here I exercise doublethink) it's truly a masterpiece. It's rather uncomfortable to read, and parts can be somewhat confusing, but it's all worth it not just for the terrifyingly clever political messages, but also the excellent characters, something which many readers don't pick up on. Winston is a perfect bullseye, with that worryingly relatable quality of knowing the world in which he lives is wrong and unjust, but being too scared and aware of how bad things are to do anything about it, until, through Julia, he finds new purpose. Julia is also great, with her rebellious free spirit and general stubbornness and passion, but with that same fear and worry Winston possesses. O'Brien... well, I can't say anything without spoilers for those unlucky few who haven't read the book, but he's also a great character. The ending is terrifying and leaves a poor taste in your mouth, especially the final four words, but it's still powerful and effective. More than anything, it makes you think about the world and society in a different way, changing your worldview forever. Above all, it's brilliant, and one everyone should have on their bookshelf. 15/10!"
This is a brilliant video and use of Cruz’s platform:
“We are seeing Silicon Valley Billionaires drunk with power. We have seen Big Tech, Facebook, and Twitter actively interfering with this election. In a way that has no president in this country. The Senate Judiciary Committee wants to know what the Hell is going on. Judiciary Committee- Issue a subpoena to Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter to come here before this committee and the American people and explain why they are using their corporate power to silence the press and to coverup allegations of corruption,” Cruz said in the video.
Cruz has been making a lot of noise in the Halls of Congress on this issue, being a bold defender of people who have been censored, banned or squelched in their posts critical of the Joe Biden campaign.
