Liberal censorship opens lucrative door for conservative entrepreneurs, social media star says

“Billions of dollars to be made by providing conservative alternatives,” Rogan O’Handley said.

The social media censorship of conservatives is going to significantly backfire, lawyer and social media influencer Rogan O’Handley predicts.

O’Handley, who goes by the social media handle @DC_Draino, told the John Solomon Reports podcast that by forcing conservatives out of mainstream social media, the left is creating a lucrative business for alternative social media platforms that are pro-free speech.

“This is economic balkanization of the internet, right? So we’re seeing as we are rejected, and pushed out of, and censored by, mainstream leftist Silicon Valley companies, it’s creating a massive, lucrative economic opportunity for entrepreneurs to provide alternatives that, you know, defend American values and allow free speech,” O’Handley said.

Marlene Jaeckel Shares Insider Information On Silicon Valley’s WAR Against Conservatives Online (Video)

The Social Media Neutrality Panel was held at the Newseum in Washington DC.

The panel included testimony from Jim Hoft of The Gateway Pundit, Pamela Geller of The Geller Report, Margaret Howell of Rightside Broadcasting, Oleg Atbashian from The People’s Cube, tech entrepreneur Marlene Jaeckel. Topics all involved the current tech climate, social media bias, shadow banning and other methods meant to silence voices and limit readers and viewers access to information.

Marlene Jaeckel is an Atlanta-based scientist and software engineer who specializes in AI, machine learning, and development on Google and Apple’s platforms. As a conservative, she is an outspoken critic of ideological bias in the technology industry and regularly tweets and writes about discriminatory practices in science, technology, and academia.

Jaeckel, a German South-African, explains how she was on the ground floor working in Silicon Valley in 2009 when she started to see the flagrant bias and censorship out outside of progressive opinion. Jaeckel outlines how while working in tech, she could not even attend a conservative rally in her free time without facing mounting attacks from those in power who would threaten to “destroy” her career. And that’s exactly what happened, suddenly Jaeckel was banned from forums and groups she belonged to, banned from speaking at events that she previously was invited to present at. Her personal experiences bridge to the broader, and terrifying reality, where she shares insider knowledge about how these companies have been able to get away with banning any conservatives these giants disagree with.

James Damore just filed a class action lawsuit against Google, saying it discriminates against white male conservatives

Damore isn’t holding back any punches here. According to his filing, Google employs “illegal hiring quotas to fill its desired percentages of women and favored minority candidates, and openly shames managers of business units who fail to meet their quotas—in the process, openly denigrating male and Caucasian employees as less favored than others.”

James Damore, a former Google engineer who was fired in August after posting a memo to an internal Google message board arguing that women may not be equally represented in tech because they are biologically less capable of engineering, has filed a class action lawsuit against the company in Santa Clara Superior Court in Northern California.

His claims: that Google unfairly discriminates against white men whose political views are unpopular with its executives.

Damore is joined in the 161-page suit by another former Google engineer named David Gudeman, who spent three years with Google working on a query engine. According to Gudeman’s LinkedIn profile, he left the company in December 2016 and has been self-employed since.

The lawsuit, filed by Dhillon Law Group, says it aims to represent all employees of Google who’ve been discriminated against due to their “perceived conservative political views by Google,” due to “their male gender by Google” and “due to their Caucasian race by Google.”
