Tucker Carlson and Mark Steyn: Social Media Monopolies Attack Free Speech – Must Be Regulated (VIDEO)
Guest post by Joe Hoft
Since the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States The Gateway Pundit has been under constant attack by the liberal media, far left groups, angry #NeverTrumpers and Trump opponents.
The Gateway Pundit supported Donald Trump for president as did millions of Americans. Donald Trump won more votes than any Republican in history in the GOP primary and the national election. Donald Trump won the election in an electoral landslide.
Since January we have suffered significant hits in advertising. Far left groups have targeted TGP as a hate site for supporting President Trump. One of the largest advertising networks labeled The Gateway Pundit as “undesirable” and refused to post ads on our website.
The Gateway Pundit has also been under constant assault by the liberal media. Since we announced our presence in the White House press room the liberal media ramped up their attacks and smears. The Gateway Pundit’s White House reporter Lucian Wintrich was viciously attacked in the press room by an uninformed and unhinged reporter in March. The reporter screamed at Lucian and accused him and The Gateway Pundit of being an anti-Semitic, anti-gay, racist, white supremacist website. Lucian, a gay conservative, is the grandson of a Nazi occupation survivor.
In May the Gateway Pundit was blocked from speaking at a pro-Trump rally in St. Louis by a #NeverTrumper who was angry at TGP for our success and support of President Trump.
In June The Gateway Pundit went before a committee of “our media peers” to request a press pass to the Senate press gallery. The committee denied our request. We heard about this from a liberal media outlet an hour after we left the hearing. The committee did not inform us of their decision for another 24 hours. A week later committee member Anna Palmer of Politico got drunk and told off a group of Trump allies at a hotel in Washington DC. Anna was one of six reporters who voted to reject our application for a Senate gallery press pass.
We aren’t the only ones being targeted by the left in the media and by monopolistic social media sites. Only ten days ago Google fired an employee for sharing a position that was not politically correct to the far left organization. Twitter, YouTube and FaceBook continue to attack conservative websites and individuals and shut down their messages.
Tucker Carlson had Mark Steyn on his show last night and they discussed the ruthless attack against the 1st Amendment and Free Speech rights by the monopolistic IT and Social Media giants in the US.
