Foreign election meddling against the Trump campaign? That’s what it looks like according to our friends over at FrontPageMag.com
The following is from Front Page Mag:
An interesting question raised by Izabella Kaminska in an interesting Financial Times piece.
The last time chief executive Mark Zuckerberg put profits ahead of principles he was accused of facilitating Russian intervention in US elections. Bowing to boycotters — many of which are multinationals or, as in the case of Unilever, domiciled abroad — could qualify as a form of political intervention or silencing.
Unilever is a British-Dutch company. Its headquarters is in the UK.
Its participation in the Facebook boycott, which is leveraged at censoring conservatives and, in particular, President Trump, is indeed a fairly blatant case of election interference, conspiring to prevent a political candidate and his supporters, from having a forum.
And not just any forum, but the largest forum around.
What is particularly damning is that Unilever’s boycott statement specifically mentioned the election.
Through this framework, we are actively engaging with all digital platforms to make meaningful change and impact trust and transparency. We have made substantial progress, and we acknowledge the efforts of our partners, but there is much more to be done, especially in the areas of divisiveness and hate speech during this polarized election period in the U.S
This is all Newspeak for censoring conservatives. And it specifically mentions the election period.
