Twitter and Facebook launched a massive censorship campaign on Wednesday to squash the New York Post story proving that Joe Biden met with son Hunter’s crooked Russian and Ukrainian business partners.
Both social media giants locked the accounts of members of the media, members of the Trump administration, and others when they tried to share the Post’s story on Wednesday. In an in-kind donation to the Biden campaign, they also put a block on many users who also tried to share the paper’s story.
You may recall that former Vice President Joe Biden has strenuously denied that he ever knew anything about his son, Hunter’s, crooked no-show job with Ukrainian energy company Burisma. Hunter was given millions for a no-show job solely because he could arrange meetings with the crooked Ukrainian/Russian businessmen and the then sitting vice president of the United States.
Biden claimed he not only had no contact with Burisma, he also said that he never even talked to his son about Burisma. But now, the bombshell story at the Post blows that claim out of the water because a computer with Hunter’s files on it was discovered to contain an email from the number three man at Burisma thanking Hunter for arranging a meeting with Biden during his time in the White House.
With these files, we now know that Joe Biden has been lying the whole time and he is ultimately corrupt… worse he indulged his corruption while he was a sitting vice president!
But after the Post published its story proving that Biden is a corrupt liar, and people began tweeting and Facebooking about the article, suddenly Facebook and Twitter put an end to its users being able to share the story with their friends.
Twitter deleted @nypost’s tweet about the Hunter Biden bombshell. This is election interference. We’ve entered the age where we have a "ministry of truth" run by Democrats and only they decide what’s true. They demand that you no longer believe your lying eyes & ears.

Not only did Twitter lock Kayleigh McEnany’s personal account but it looks like they deleted her tweet about the NY Post story.

That’s right, Twitter and Facebook just worked to hide a story that proves Joe Biden is a corrupt liar only 20 days before an election where Biden is asking for America’s vote to become our next president!
This is direct interference in the 2020 election.
The paper was gobsmacked over the censorship. In an op ed later that day, the Post attacked Facebook saying, “Facebook censors The Post to help Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign.”
“So much for Facebook’s claims to be a neutral platform: One of its top execs just put the social media giant firmly in the pro-Biden camp. And Twitter soon followed suit,” the paper wrote.
One of the paper’s editors also commented about this obscene censorship:
This is a Big Tech information coup. This is digital civil war.
I, an editor at The New York Post, one of the nation’s largest papers by circulation, can’t post one of our own stories that details corruption by a major-party presidential candidate, Biden. pic.twitter.com/BKNQmAG19H

The outrage over the censorship grew as the day wore on.
As we reported yesterday, U.S. Senator Josh Hawley furiously demanded that Facebook answer to its censorship:

Donald Trump, Jr., put out a great video tweet on the issue:
The Biden family has spent decades in Washington, DC enriching themselves by selling access to Joe Biden's taxpayer funded office.
Hunter Biden is corrupt. Jim Biden is corrupt. Joe Biden is corrupt.
— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) October 14, 2020
The Trump campaign said of the incident:
The Biden campaign does not dispute the authenticity of the emails published by the New York Post, which serves to confirm that they are real. And if Joe Biden never met with Vadym Pozharskyi, the Biden campaign would say so. They do not say that. Their answer basically is that the entry ‘Meeting with Ukrainian businessman buying access to the Vice President’ does not appear on Joe Biden’s official schedule. Their response is so carefully worded that it reveals the truth in what they don’t deny. They also don’t address the overarching question of why Joe Biden lied to the American people about never discussing with Hunter Biden his corrupt business dealings with the Ukrainian energy company Burisma. Americans deserve a full accounting of the conversations Joe Biden had with Hunter, and what Joe Biden discussed with Vadym Pozharskyi.

Folks, the media is flat out evil, we know. But social media is far worse.
