(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – Numerous officials of President Joe Biden’s administration have been working with the major social media companies such as Twitter and Facebook to censor essential information from the American public, two Republican state Attorneys General have revealed.
Missouri AG Eric Schmitt and Louisiana AG Jeff Landry have released internal documents showing that employees of Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) have sent information to Twitter and Facebook employees.
In them, the Biden officials told the Big Tech social media giants about alleged “misinformation” that had to be censored and also gave them talking points for countering alleged “false narratives” on their platforms, The Daily Caller reported.
It noted that the officials of Joe Biden’s administration occasionally started the censorship coordination.
In one of the exposed cases, an employee of the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) asked Facebook for joint monthly meetings to collaborate on “debunking strategies.” In another case, an official from the White House asked Facebook to take down a parody account of Anthony Fauci.
A collection of emails demonstrates that Facebook staffers worked closely with DHHS to remove entire Facebook groups in what was said to be “critical” collaboration.
CDC officials mulled establishing “regular chats” with Twitter, while Twitter set up a meeting with White House staffers to tell them about its crackdown on “vaccine misinformation.”
“I know our teams met today to better understand the scope of what the White House expects from us on misinformation going forward,” reads one email from Facebook staff to DHHS employees.
“In our previous conversations I’ve appreciated the way you and your team have approached our engagement, and we have worked hard to meet the moment — we’ve dedicated enormous time and resources to fighting this pandemic and consider ourselves partners in fighting the same battle,” the email elaborated.
The two Republican AGs said documents from the Department of Justice show that 45 officials from the DHS and DHHS had connections with the social media giants, while Facebook and Twitter have revealed their links to the White House and the US Election Assistance Commission.
“The limited discovery produced so far provides a tantalizing snapshot into a massive, sprawling federal “Censorship Enterprise,” which includes dozens of federal officials across at least eleven federal agencies and components identified so far,” Schmitt and Landry write, as they petitioned the DOJ for additional documents.
“[These officials] communicate with social-media platforms about misinformation, disinformation, and the suppression of private speech on social media—all with the intent and effect of pressuring social-media platforms to censor and suppress private speech that federal officials disfavor,” the two GOP Attorneys General wrote.
