Big Tech on Notice: Melania, Tiffany Trump Blast Social Media Tyranny

First Lady Melania Trump and the president’s youngest daughter Tiffany Trump blasted Big Tech during their speeches at the Republican National Convention. 

Many members of the Trump family have given the 2020 Republican National Convention a personal touch. They used it as an opportunity to defend their family patriarch’s presidency while raking the far-left over the coals. 

Melania Trump called to America’s mothers interacting with the polarized environment online: “Just like me, I know many of you watch how mean and manipulative social media can be.” She later added how “just like me, I'm sure many of you are looking for answers, how to talk to your children about the downside of technology and their relationships with their peers.” 

Tiffany Trump, a recent Georgetown Law graduate, where she was reportedly the co-president of the Cyberlaw Society, according to The Technology 202 newsletter. She scorched Big Tech and the media for inhibiting American’s very ability to discuss necessary debates. She said, “In short, our nation suffers by inhibiting our diversity of thought and inclusion of ideas. Working together outside of our political comfort zones will accomplish so much more.”

She also torched the media’s and Big Tech’s role in suppressing free expression:

“People must recognize that our thoughts, our opinions, and even the choice of who we are voting for may, and are, being manipulated and visibly coerced by the media and tech giants.” 

Tiffany Trump took a swipe at the mainstream media in general, and how in this era of political-correctness, censorship, and fact-checking, establishment companies are doing everything they can to shut down debate:

“If you tune into the media, you get one biased opinion or another, and what you share, if it does not fit into the narrative that they seek to promote, then it is either ignored or deemed a lie, regardless of the truth.” 

Tiffany Trump went on to explain: “Rather than allowing Americans the right to form our own beliefs, this misinformation system keeps people mentally enslaved to the ideas they [the media and tech giants] deem correct.” 

She later encouraged listeners to ask themselves why this aggression on free thought is so ubiquitous in modern society:

“Why are so many in media and technology, and even in our own government, so invested in promoting a biased and fabricated view? Ask yourselves, why are we prevented from seeing certain information? Why is one viewpoint promoted while others are hidden? The answer is control, because division and controversy breed profit.”

Conservatives are under attack. Contact the FCC at 1-888-225-5322 and/or via the MRC’s FCC contact form to give your take on the petition filed by the Department of Commerce regarding Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996. Demand that Big Tech be held to account to mirror the First Amendment while providing transparency, clarity on “hate speech” and equal footing for conservatives.
