Dan Bongino dropped some massive truth bombs in this interview. You need to see this…
With Mark Zuckerberg (sort of) testifying before Congress about the data mining and creepy spying that Facebook has been doing on users — and non-users.
During the testimony, Mr. Zuckerberg didn’t seem to know much, but would have his ‘team’ follow up:
In the wake of this testimony, Dan Bongino was interviewed by The Daily Wire’s Jacob Airey. Bongino explained why conservative media hasn’t been vanquished by Big Tech and the Mainstream Media (D).
In response to the question on whether or not Zuckerberg held his own in his testimony, Bongino replied that the answers seemed carefully scripted and MZ had obviously been prepped by his lawyers.
But then he went on to say this:
BONGINO: I’m a free market, libertarian kind of guy. Facebook is a private company and you’re the product. When you understand that, you go into it with open eyes and open ears and you’re good to go on social media.
Having said that, I think they clearly engage in political and ideological discrimination. It’s atrocious. They’re destroying the market, and I don’t think they have a future when they discriminate against 50% of the country.
I’ve been banned from running ads on Twitter for “inappropriate” content, but they’ve never told me what content was inappropriate. We’ve scoured our Twitter feed and we have no idea what they are talking about. What kind of business is that to turn down thousands of dollars in revenue from “inappropriate” content, but you don’t tell paying customers what they have a problem with? Maybe it’s just that the content is conservative.
Bongino also said that Conservatives are good at diversification which is why conservative media hasn’t died out completely, despite the censorship efforts from the Left.
When asked if this will be a ‘wake up call’ for social media platforms to treat all ideologies equally, Bongino said that he doesn’t think that it will be.
Check out his reasons why:
BONGINO:No, I don’t think so. I’m in the midst of a week-long temporary boycott of Facebook. I haven’t posted since Sunday. What was the reason? I had on Diamond and Silk who got labeled “unsafe for the community.” I don’t agree with them on everything, but regardless, every conservative and civil libertarian should be concerned.
You have two outspoken black conservative Trump supporters who are deemed “unsafe for the community”? If they were liberal, the story would be on the front-page of every newspaper in America with cries of racism. So I’m boycotting Facebook for a week in solidarity with them. They sell our content, well, they can do without our content for a week.
Back to your question, will it change anything? No, it won’t. These are companies run by progressives who are fully indoctrinated. It’s obvious right now they have zero interest in making it a level playing field.
It’s a win-win for them because they know that small government conservatives will never advocate for government regulation. In the first win, it’s a win because the social media platforms will punish those who don’t copy their ideology, so they can diminish opposing voices. Secondly, it’s a win because they know that conservatives won’t try to punish them with government regulation. It’s a good deal for them.
Bongino was also asked about conservatives creating their own social media platforms.
BONGINO:Unquestionably yes. It’s not going to happen overnight, but remember, Fox News didn’t happen overnight either. The mainstream media had a hegemonic rule over your TV for close to 40 years, but when Fox finally broke through, it crushed them at least on cable. Fox is pretty much number one in every time slot.
These social media networks can keep censoring conservatives, but it’s not going to work. People are smarter and savvier than that.
Daily Wire, Conservative Review, NRATV, along with many bloggers and podcast hosts, are bringing in large audiences.
Here are his thoughts on the future.
BONGINO: I’ve got a large platform, but it’s not nearly large enough. I think what’s going to wind up happening is eventually you’re going to get a Democrat leadership-type committee on the Right. They’re going to try to gather donors to help build new platforms.
I’d like to see The Daily Wire or CRTV or whoever, partner and say, “You know what, we don’t all agree on everything when it comes to policy, but we all agree about freedom, liberty, you know the big core issues. We should get together and form something bigger.”
It could be a conservative Twitter or whatever. That would be the only way to get the necessary crowd affect where people would join up. It would have to be huge names involved. I guarantee you, people would pile out of these old platforms.
They are so tired of being stigmatized by these corporate progressive titans.
