The left has a new weapon in their war to silence conservative speech.
And it involves technology Americans use in their everyday lives.
Devin Nunes stepped up to the plate and fought back.
Tech companies like Facebook, Google and Twitter are coming under the microscope for their left-wing political beliefs.
Conservatives have pointed out Google – which also owns YouTube – has stripped right leaning content creators of the right to have ads run before their videos and make money.
And like Twitter and Facebook, YouTube and Google have outright banned conservative’s voices while allowing liberals to hurl vicious insults and routinely violate each platform’s terms of services.
The latest example of conservative censorship was Brietbart’s John Nolte tweeting out that Twitter was censoring the influential Drudge Report feed by hiding content because it was deemed “too sensitive.”

Devin Nunes reacted and tweeted out asking his 105,000 followers to retweet if they were seeing the same thing.

Tech companies like Twitter are run and staffed by far leftists.
The first hint of how far they were willing to go in order to censor conservative speech was during the 2016 campaign when Facebook staffers started suppressing conservative sites from the trending news section.
Then Google began to demonetize conservative content creators YouTube channels.
Now Twitter is censoring the Drudge Report’s tweets.
There is already a groundswell of support building among grassroots conservatives to treat these companies like public utilities so the liberals who run these companies can’t shut down conservatives from communicating their message.
If more examples of corporate censorship against Republicans sprout up, those calls will only increase.
