Despite the fact that Twitter continues to insist that it does not have a political bias, its co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey donated to Democratic Party candidate Tulsi Gabbard, according to several reports.
“The mogul, who leads Twitter and financial tech firm Square, gave $2,800 each to Gabbard’s primary fund and her general election campaign fund, the maximum amount allowed for individuals under federal law,” Fox News said.
Laura Loomer is currently suing Twitter, alleging that the company banned her account, which has 260,000 followers, due to its political bias.
This site reported:
Investigative Journalist and Activist Laura Loomer filed suit today in a Florida court for harm caused by her November 2018 ban from the social media platform Twitter.
As reported in the Wall Street Journal, Loomer’s ban came at the instigation of CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) and was carried out shortly after CAIR’s meeting with Twitter executives.
Loomer has been a frequent critic of CAIR and its CAIR Florida affiliate, as well as their “favorite daughters”, Congressional Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.
The Twitter ban of Loomer came after the activist called Ilhan Omar “anti-Jewish”, a fact that has since been established and recognized by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and many other prominent political leaders.
The report of Dorsey’s donations is especially disturbing in light of the fact that only a small number of Americans actually donate to political campaigns in their lifetimes. Only 12% of Americans reported donating to a political campaign in the past year in 2016, according to Pew Research. That suggests that those who do donate to political campaigns have stronger political beliefs than most ordinary Americans.
The fact that one of those people who holds stronger political beliefs than the ordinary American is Dorsey, who runs a company capable of banishing conservatives from the public square but insists that he does not have any political bias, should be worrying to conservatives.
