“…a majority of voters effectively said, ‘Screw it, shut it all down.'” – Jesse Lehrich, co-founder of Accountable Tech
Following the playbook of tyrannical countries worldwide, a group founded by Clinton acolytes is floating the terrifying concept of a complete “social media blackout” during election week. The group, Accountable Tech, claims that the “majority” of citizens “support shutting down social media platforms for the week of the election.”
The Communist Party of China is notorious for squashing dissent online. The leftist organization Human Rights Watch has addressed internet shut downs in countries such as Venezuela, Zimbabwe, Iran and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The governments of those countries claim that clamping down on internet useage is “necessary for public safety or curbing the spread of misinformation.”
As reported at RAIR Foundation USA, Accountable Tech is fighting to supress what they refer to as “weaponized disinformation” on social media while they push the “dragging out the election” strategy until Americans accept Joe Biden as president.
Hillary Clinton has set the stage by stating openly that “Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances.” She continued: “Because, I think this is going to drag out and eventually I do believe we will win, if we don’t give an inch.”
The Accountable Tech website warns:
“Unchecked lies about mail-in ballots and fraud will suppress votes. Baseless claims of election-rigging will sow chaos and inflame tensions. And extremists will organize and advocate for violence.”
According to an “exclusive” by Ashley Gold at Axios, “[F]ifty-two percent of voters support shutting down social media platforms altogether for the week of the presidential election.” The finding was based on a poll from GQR (Greenberg Quinlan Rosner) Research “commissioned by Accountable Tech.” GQR conducts “innovative polling and opinion research”, according to their website, which “helps progressive candidates campaign, win, and govern.”
GQR claims to have been “at the center of many of the hardest and most important progressive victories in modern history,” including “The election of Bill Clinton in 1992.” The group brags that they provided “the polling and strategic advice that helped to flip 9 of the 40 seats that changed control of the House of Representatives in 2018 – more than any other firm.”
Surely GQR’s poll commissioned by Accountable Tech showing that most people want a social media blackout is completely credible and non-partisan. Right? Unfortunately, there does not appear to be a link to the survey, so it is difficult to scrutinize methodolgy.
It appears that Hillary Clinton’s cronies are desperate to control the narrative. If President Trump wins the election, they will respond as cornered animals do. These people are dangerous.
