‘COMMUNIST CENSORSHIP’: Kirstie Alley SLAMS Big Tech For Squashing Hunter Biden Story

From NewsBusters:

As an outspoken conservative in liberal La La Land, Kirstie Alley shows no fear when calling out lefties. Her Hollywood colleagues mock her every which way and still she never stifles her truth-telling, even if it starts trouble with the very people who could terminate her voice in the public square.

Recently, Alley courted even more scorn by calling out the free speech killers in big tech for their tyrannical double standards. In social media posts, the actress hammered both Facebook and Twitter for gladly spreading lies about Trump’s “Russian Collusion,” but working overtime to stifle any evidence of Joe Biden enriching himself via his son’s ties to foreign governments.

Alley claimed that both tech monopolies are engaging in “Communist censorship” by protecting and amplifying the rumors and conspiracy claims of the far left against Trump, while squashing the New York Post story that credibly damages the salacious and corrupt Biden family.

The Cheers actress who has become exasperated with the left’s dirty tricks, tweeted on Monday, October 26, “TWITTER IS STILL BANNING @thenewyorkpost FACEBOOK IS STILL DECIDING IF THE BIDEN BIG GUY STORY IS LEGIT…”

 Last week, big tech embarked on their most sophisticated attack against free speech yet. MRC TechWatch’s Alexander Hall and Corinne Weaver reported both Facebook and Twitter’s announcement that they would be “reducing” the “distribution” of an October 14 New York Post story. That story published “emails from Democratic presidential candidate Biden’s son Hunter Biden” that “displayed the alleged corruption that both father and son partook in with Ukraine."

Facebook Policy Communications director Andy Stone said his platform would reduce the story and Twitter moved to disable all links to the story, claiming that it’s “potentially harmful.” Twitter even suspended several big accounts which shared the link, like that of Trump’s main campaign account “Team Trump,” and the account belonging to White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

Conservatives like Alley were enraged, considering the thoroughly-debunked Russia Gate conspiracy alleging Trump’s collusion with Russia to win the 2016 election was allowed to circulate social media for years and contribute to half the nation’s sense that Trump is an illegitimate president.


Alley elaborated in her tweet, pointing out that Hunter gets protected but “EVERY news media ran EVERY LYING Russia hoax & impeachment story against Trump without vetting ANYTHING!!”

It’s a solid point. The NY Post story may prove that Biden was using his son to enrich his family, or that at the very least may prove that the former vice president was lying when he said he’s never spoken to his son about Hunter’s business dealings, but for big tech, that was too “harmful.”

Of course it was “harmful,” “harmful” to the structural integrity of the idea that Biden is an upstanding, squeaky clean Democrat presidential candidate. Alley implied that it’s exactly why Big tech squashed the story.

“It’s all bullshit it’s communist CENSORSHIP! #trump2020,” Alley concluded. At the very least Big Tech’s double standard here is gargantuan.
