A group of high-powered conservative media leaders gathered to strategize ways to combat the liberal bias in the tech industry led by Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell.
A group of high-powered conservative media leaders gathered on Wednesday night for their strategy ways to combat the liberal bias in the tech industry, the Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell called “the most powerful force in the history” when it comes to the extreme left, the attempt at ” remaking civilization.”
“Conservatives will come together, in a wide spectrum of the companies and join forces against what some of us believe to be possibly the greatest threat to freedom in history,” Bozell said in an interview with Fox News. “I think we are on the road for an all-out war. As much as they want Kumbaya, this is not gonna be Kumbaya.”
TRUMP STORES ON FACEBOOK, GOOGLE, TWITTER, SAYS TECH GIANTS ‘ON THE SIDE OF THE RADICAL LEFT-WING DEMOCRATS’
“Conservatives will come together, in a wide spectrum of the companies and join forces against what some of us believe to be possibly the greatest threat to freedom in the history… I think we are on the way for an all-out war.”
— Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell
Bozell eaten with the leaders of the Washington Times, The Federalist, The Daily Signal, LifeSite News, Breitbart, Regnery Publishing, Prager You, Sinclair Broadcasting, The Heritage Foundation and others to discuss what they say is a left-wing bias under billionaire tech titans who use their power to “push a political agenda,” with Google, Facebook, Twitter and Google-owned YouTube is their primary objectives.
“Google is potentially the most dangerous, because it has the power with the search engine,” Bozell said. “You also have service companies that are in the law, or PayPal, or Microsoft and many others, they are now starting to flat-out censor… or demonize conservative online publications.”
For Twitter, Bozell said it is a global group of influencers who are able to spout their messages, while people with beliefs that do not correspond to the calendar often turned off. He said users will be forced to adhere to “voice control,” which touches on the “big brother after a while” because a ruler is, in essence, telling you what rhetoric is acceptable.

“That starts getting very eerie,” Bozell added. “Especially when you are looking at this global, not only of this country, it is worldwide.”
Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell is ready to fight back against tech giants.
The meeting was the second meeting of the group, and more are planned. Bozell said that Silicon Valley leaders always want to discuss how to improve the situation, but never really do anything about it – so the conservative media leaders are committed to taking action.
The group is planning to meet Capitol Hill leaders on a next meeting in order to finalise its strategy. Everything from legal action, anti-trust measures, competitive platforms and regulations of the government on the table. Bozell feels that the people on the left are also concerned with the power of the high-tech goliaths and is hopeful that ultimately it is a nonpartisan issue, which leads to a multi-faceted attempt to combat the bias of all forms.
“Some of us are aware of this new threat from the beginning,” Bozell said. “Only recently has everyone started to realize how big the problem is and how existentially necessary it is to fight them. Everyone agrees that it’s all hands on deck situation for the freedom.”
President Trump on Tuesday morning attacked Twitter, Facebook and Google, say the companies “on the side of the Radical Left-wing Democrats.” It is unclear what Trump was specifically referring to, but the three-tech companies, which have a combined market capitalization of more than $1.3 billion dollars, under fire in the last weeks of the legislators and media members.
California GOP Rep. Devin Nunes recently filed a major lawsuit seeking $250 million in damages and $ 350,000 in punitive damages against Twitter and a handful of its users, accusing the social media site of “shadow-banning conservatives” to secretly hide it from their office, systematically censor opposing views, and completely “ignoring” legitimate complaints of repeated abuse.
Last month, Twitter was sued by a Canadian blogger who says that they are permanently banned from the platform for her tweets that refer to a transgender woman as ” him.”
Twitter has consistently refused the “shadow bans” users, specifically with the writing of a blog post in July 2018 that it is not in the shadow of prohibition, a practice it describes as “the awareness of one’s content undiscoverable for everyone, with the exception of the person who posted it, unbeknownst to the original poster.”
FACEBOOK APOLOGIZES TO TRUMP THE SOCIAL MEDIA DIRECTOR FOR THE TEMPORARILY LIMIT HIS ACCOUNT
Facebook has recently apologized to the Strengths of the social media manager, Dan Scavino Jr, for temporarily limiting his account for a couple of hours by automated bots on the platform – that the president of the tweet “#StopTheBias.”
The tech giants have also been accused of everything from trying to influence elections to censor conservative talking points. The same companies have come under fire for allowing controversial figures on the left, such as Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, to have a platform. In October, Twitter told Fox News it would not suspend Farrakhan’s account, despite posting a video with a caption that compared the Jews to termites.
“It is a joint effort led by billionaires that this extremist vision for the rebuilding of America… their communication vehicle is not in The New York Times, Facebook, Twitter, these social media sites.”

“It is a joint effort led by billionaires that this extremist vision for the rebuilding of America… their communication vehicle is not in The New York Times, Facebook, Twitter, these social media sites,” Bozell said. “Can anyone deny the dramatic change that has occurred in this country in the last 10 years? Can anyone deny that it happened? This is no coincidence, and they are very, very successful… the world has suddenly gone upside down.”
Bozell said the group discussed who is responsible for the problem, what can be done to change things, and why it happened in the first place.
“There are many tentacles all over the place… it is not an easy task to study why this is happening and what the goal of the radical left is and how they try to implement it,” Bozell said. “The question is, if we do nothing, if we are already so far, this radically far in 10 years, if we do nothing, 10 years from now where we are? If that doesn’t scare someone than anything.”
