Leaked 49-page memo documents how George Soros is behind social media censorship

A new leaked memo obtained by The Free Beacon documents how George Soros funded groups plotted with Google, Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms to eliminate conservative “right wing propaganda.”

The recent wave of censorship of conservative voices on the internet by tech giants Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Apple mirrors a plan concocted by a coalition of George Soros-funded, progressive groups to take back power in Washington from President Trump’s administration.

confidential, 49-page memo for defeating Trump by working with the major social-media platforms to eliminate “right wing propaganda and fake news” was presented in January 2017  by Media Matters founder David Brock at a retreat in Florida with about 100 donors, the Washington Free Beacon reported at the time.

The Gateway Pundit reported that in January 2017 after Hillary Clinton was shellacked in the November 2016 election top Democrat operatives at Media Matters, Share Blue, American Bridge, and CREW came together and released their two-year plan to take back power in Washington DC.

The document obtained by The Free Beacon states that Media Matters and other Soros funded groups have “access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites” so they can “systemically monitor and analyze this unfiltered data.”

According to the document, the radical left groups have been working with Facebook and Twitter to eliminate conservative content.

The Free Beacon obtained a copy of the memo, “Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action,” by attending a January 2017 retreat in Florida sponsored by Media Matters founder David Brock and 100 donors.

WND reports that the memo spells out a four-year agenda that deployed Media Matters along with American Bridge, Shareblue and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) to attack Trump and Republicans. The strategies are impeachment, expanding Media Matters’ mission to combat “government misinformation,” ensuring Democratic control of the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections, filing lawsuits against the Trump administration, monetizing political advocacy, using a “digital attacker” to delegitimize Trump’s presidency and damage Republicans, and partnering with Facebook to combat “fake news.”

WND reports…

The document claims Media Matters and far-left groups have “access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites” so they can “systemically monitor and analyze this unfiltered data.”

“The earlier we can identify a fake news story, the more effectively we can quash it,” the memo states. “With this new technology at our fingertips, researchers monitoring news in real time will be able to identify the origins of a lie with mathematical precision, creating an early warning system for fake news and disinformation.”

Media Matters met with Facebook, which boasts some 2 billion members worldwide, to discuss how to crack down on fake news, according to the memo.

The social media giant was provided with “a detailed map of the constellation of right-wing Facebook pages that had been the biggest purveyors of fake news.”

Brock’s memo also says Media Matters gave Google “the information necessary to identify 40 of the worst fake new sites” so they could be banned from Google’s advertising network.

The Gateway Pundit pointed out that in 2016, Google carried out that plan on the Gateway Pundit blog and other conservative sites, including Breitbart, the Drudge Report, Infowars, Zero Hedge and Conservative Treehouse.

Facebook, meanwhile has changed its newsfeed algorithm, ostensibly to combat “fake news,” causing a precipitous decline in traffic for many conservative sites.

President Donald Trump himself was affected, with his engagement on Facebook dropping by 45 percent.

A study in June by Gateway Pundit found Facebook had eliminated 93 percent of the traffic of top conservative news outlets.

Western Journal, in its own study, found that while left-wing publishers saw a roughly 2 percent increase in web traffic from Facebook following the algorithm changes, conservative sites saw a loss of traffic averaging around 14 percent.

‘Totalitarian impulse’ of the left

President Trump’s 2020 campaign manager charged last week the giants of Silicon Valley are stifling free speech, particularly conservative speech, manifesting the “inherent totalitarian impulse” of the left.

On Friday, Facebook appeared to be “shadow banning” the non-profit education site PragerU, founded by talk-host Dennis Prager, causing a drop in engagement of 99.9999 percent while removing two videos regarded as “hate speech.”

After Facebook rejected a highly inspirational ad for a Republican congressional candidate that included images depicting her parents’ persecution under the Khmer Rouge communist regime in Cambodia, Twitter followed up with its own ban.

WND reported earlier this month Facebook banned a pro-life video ad by a judicial candidate, giving the same explanation.

On Aug. 6,  WND reported, Facebook, YouTube and Apple banned commentator Alex Jones and his Infowars website within hours of each other.

Last month, WND reported moderate Muslims and counter-terrorist activists were increasingly being restricted by Silicon Valley, while terrorist content remains on social-media platforms, according to researchers.

Trump campaign chief Parscale said last week the banning of Jones “will inevitably lead to the silencing of those with far less controversial opinions.”

“What we are seeing in Big Tech is the inherent totalitarian impulse of the Left come into full focus,” Parscale said.

Here is an interesting look at how both Facebook and Google are justifying their censorship of the internet:

The biggest question is where do we draw the line between truth and propaganda, government-based or otherwise?

Helping corporate Democrats. Khmer Rouge thanks Nixon and Kissinger. The fake left and republicans share the same goals. Now, oligarch predatory manipulative murderous capitalists want to pretend, through this bs narrative, that the “left” is targeting the “right”, and it’s all the fault of communists, socialists and RussiaIranChinaDPRK. WHILE they target every socialist or partly socialist or partly communist (but all partly capitalist) country on Earth that is strategically valuable. Mmmkay. I want someone to tell me precisely whether Saudi Wahhabia is left or right. Also, the Likud. Left or right? The Tories- Skripal, “anti-semitism”, “Assad CW”. Left or right?… Read more »

There’s an awful lot of harmful spin attached to this article. George Soros et al are not leftwing. They are fake leftwing. Even worse, the author calls them ‘radical leftwing’. That only serves to conflate the real, and real ‘radical’, Left with the fake, rightwing, resource-rich Left. Seriously folks?!!

In an age where everyone has their own “facts,” who are the angels who are going to make sure we see only the “real” fact facts?
Well, Facebook and Google, of course.

The only FAKE NEWS and PROPAGANDA is the poison they pump into their massive network and the soft brains of our children.

Censorship has existed for centuries — book burnings, people being burned alive, people meeting in secret for fear of retribution, being imprisoned for defying the prevailing ideology. Newspapers and electronic news outlets practice censorship all the time. Schools do it, too. There is NO SUCH THING AS FAKE NEWS! There is the truth, and there is the lies. Fake news is a fairly juvenile psyop to get people to think that information, events, people, heck, even history, is all made up. Essentially, the current paradigm has transported us into an illusory world where not only can’t we trust our senses,… Read more »

…I have ponder why big tech’s fervor in censoring conservatives on social media. Now we know why, this Nazi bastard.
It’s time we as America, check this Nazi bastard from doing further damage to our Republic. It’s time we freeze all of his assets and access to them. And watch how small these protests become…

Lord the enemy is big and seemingly formidable but nothing is too great for you. Judge this wickedness called George Soros and cause the curses he attempts to bring on good people to be multiplied back on him and his group of followers, I pray in Jesus name!
