Soros-Funded Site Slams Big Tech for Reinstating Trump Ahead of Possible Indictment

March 27th, 2023 3:43 PM

A George Soros-funded media outlet is propping up arguments for a second Big Tech censorship of former President Donald Trump because of so-called “fringe” talks of “civil war” and “threats of violence.”

Potential unrest would be a test of “whether the platforms are prepared to take swift action in the case of future demagogues,” Just Security’s Justin Hendrix wrote before citing the so-called experts’ analyses of Trump’s call for protests in order to promote silencing him again. Soros’ Open Society Foundations fueled at least $975,000 to Just Security between 2017 and 2021 alone. Its founding editor, Jennifer Daskal, was recently the subject of major scrutiny for her personal ties to Soros in light of her being tapped to co-chair President Joe Biden’s now-defunct dystopian Disinformation Governance Board

Here’s a recap of some of the leftist experts Just Security cited to harangue online free speech:

Jacob Glick, who served as investigative counsel for the anti-Trump House Select Committee on Jan. 6, slammed Big Tech’s “dangerous” decision to reinstate Trump:

“‘Over the weekend, [Trump’s] initial post echoed the bellicose language he deployed prior to the Capitol attack. He also made his first post on Facebook since his account was reactivated, in a clear signal that he plans to take advantage of Meta’s decision to allow him back on the platform.

This is the dangerous – and entirely predictable – result of the decision to re-platform Trump. Since the insurrection, the former president has only tightened his embrace of the Big Lie, violent conspiracies like QAnon, and even political violence.’” 

Peter Simi – an analyst of “extremist groups” who has voiced so-called “concerns” over Trump’s connections with and effect on “white supremacists” – claimed Big Tech’s decisions to reinstate Trump “lack credibility” and “transparency”, calling on experts like himself to reevaluate censorship decisions.

“‘No, these social media platforms once again seem to be putting their bottom line ahead of public safety and democracy. Their assessments lack credibility and, of course, transparency, so there is no way for experts or anyone else to evaluate how these companies made their determinations.’”

Donell Harvin, who offered anti-Trump testimony before the House Select Committee on Jan. 6, defended private entities’ ability to muzzle Americans:

“‘Trump supporters and those on the right often decry their deplatforming as a violation of ‘freedom of speech,’ however the First Amendment does not apply to these social media companies. Private entities can create user agreements and remove users and their posts without running afoul of the Constitution.’”

Jared Holt, senior research analyst at the Soros-funded Institute for Strategic Dialogue, credited the disruption of violence to banning Trump:

“‘Banning Trump and other movements that were most visible on January 6 probably disrupted those organizing spaces enough to prevent further wreckage, but extremist movements adapted and overcame those hurdles, like they always do. It’s a fluid problem.’”

Tom Joscely, who served as a staff member for the House Select Committee on Jan. 6, blamed the unrest on Trump and said that Trump will be to blame if any violence erupts ahead of a Manhattan DA indictment:

“‘For the first time in American history, there was no peaceful transfer of power on January 6, 2021. Trump’s incendiary use of social media caused the violence we witnessed. So we should not be surprised if Trump’s tweets and other social media posts incite violence once again.’”

Mary B. McCord, who was tapped by former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to the House Task Force Capitol Security Review, demanded answers:

“‘The platforms should answer now how they will treat posts like those on Truth Social over the last several days.’”

Candace Rondeaux – a professor and author who blamed the January 6 riots on alternative social media platforms (including Parler) – went as far as to call on Congress to take action against Trump:

“‘It’s clear the corrective lies with Congress but few are likely to be motivated to take action in the run up to the 2024 elections.’”

Conservatives are under attack.
