'We Cannot Stand for It': Charlie Kirk Accuses Tech Giants of Silencing Conservative Voices
'It could be a huge, huge problem moving forward.'
Turning Point USA's Charlie Kirk believes liberal tech giants are silencing conservatives because the left is feeling threatened heading into November's midterm elections.
A number of conservative pundits, lawmakers and candidates have recently accused social media companies like Facebook and Twitter of censorship.
In addition, YouTube and its parent organization, Google, have been accused of "shadow-banning" conservative content, which restricts its visibility in search results.
"This is their great offensive to try to silence differing opinion," Kirk argued on "Fox & Friends" on Monday. "And make no mistake, it's not because the conservative voices are offensive. It's because they are effective."
He said big tech companies are "colluding" to target some of the most popular, highly-engaged conservatives voices that speak hard truths.
He wondered why they don't go out of their way to censor controversial figures on the left, such as Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has repeatedly expressed racist and anti-Semitic views.
"We need to push back because it could be a huge, huge problem moving forward," Kirk said.
"The very bottom line is the left hates the idea that there are other ideas. And they control these public forums or these vehicles of conversation. They're going to use every piece of power and influence they can to try to suppress our voice. And we cannot stand for it."
