It truly comes as no shock that Big Tech has begun unleashing existential attacks against Donald Trump’s social media platform, Truth Social.
Midterm elections are right around the corner and Democrats are finding themselves in an incredibly vulnerable position as it’s unlikely that they will retain majorities in Congress. This presents a problem Democrats often find themselves in: Should they take the losses or rig the elections?
The entire country knows how Democrats handle important elections; they will lie, cheat, and steal to wrangle power away from anyone who threatens their progressive, globalist aims. Every mechanism of society – whether it be social media, pop culture, or the government – will be exploited and used to ensure winning outcomes for Democrat politicians.
Donald Trump established Truth Social after Democrats successfully lobbied for the Former President to be kicked off mainstream platforms. He was systematically blacklisted following the 2020 presidential election and the massive Jan. 6 protest. Trump has since slapped lawsuits against Google, Twitter, et al in a bid to expose the political bias and corruption pervasive in these companies today.
Truth Social now dominates the independent social media marketplace and is increasingly popular with conservatives and liberals alike due to their lax policies on censorship and speech moderation. Big Tech bemouths, influenced by nefarious Deep State actors, have begun using Truth’s lax policies against them.
Google’s app store, which controls access to 44% of smartphones in the U.S., will no longer offer Truth Social on their marketplace due to “content moderation concerns,” according to reports.
“On Aug. 19, we notified Truth Social of several violations of standard policies in their current app submission and reiterated that having effective systems for moderating user-generated content is a condition of our terms of service for any app to go live on Google Play,” a Google spokesperson said.
Truth Social CEO Devin Nunes, a former congressman from California, has expressed frustration with the tech giant’s intransigence. “I don’t know what’s taking them so long,” said Nunes in a recent podcast interview.
As users await Google’s decision to include Truth Social on its store, it appears the liberal media outlets are attempting to lobby for a total ban.
The New York Times recently published a piece about the presence of “Qanon” content circulating on Truth Social (as if that’s relevant) to argue that the platform should be banned. Fear-mongering about right-wing “misinformation” seems to be the preferred takedown tactic for media outlets.
The smartphone market is a duopoly, with over 99% of smartphone users in the U.S. using either Apple’s iOS or Google’s Android operating systems.
Truth Social has been approved by Apple, which controls approximately 55% of the market in the U.S., but not Google — cutting off the app, and Former President Trump’s primary method of communicating on social media, from the remaining 44 percent.
Meanwhile, extreme subject matter and criminal content continue to evade the moderation policies of other social media companies. The only difference, of course, is the political affiliation of the person posting criminal content to other platforms.
For example, following the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, social media platforms were flooded with frustrated liberals posting the most insane racist and violent content about Justice Clarence Thomas.
Twitter’s content moderation policies, the very policies Google approves of, failed to prevent Justice Thomas from being referred to as a “house NIGGER” by disgruntled liberals.

Twitter didn’t mind when crazed abortion activists demanded Justice Thomas’ death, either.

Left-wing criminal activity has largely been ignored and permitted on social media, even after Trump was banned. In the summer of 2020, when left-wing domestic terrorists were burning major American cities, Twitter allowed these terrorists to post locations of looting targets, which added to the destruction of small businesses across the country.
But, sure, ban Truth Social!
