WASHINGTON, D.C. – A newly-founded non-profit group, Free Our Internet, launched to oppose Soros-funded Internet censorship, has launched a new campaign, #ReportTheBans, inviting participants to report personal experiences.
“If your voice has ever been silenced by the Internet Censorship Bureau, we want the details,” a #ReportTheBans page on the Free Our Internet website offers.
The #ReportTheBans campaign invites Internet users to “Tell Your Story,” with a box to check requesting confidentiality.
Free Our Internet highlights the campaign with the “amazing admission” from Google Chairman Eric Schmidt, who said on March 23, 2017: “It should be possible for computers to detect malicious, misleading and incorrect information and essentially have you not see it. We’re not arguing for censorship, we’re arguing for just take it off the page … right? … Put it somewhere else. Make it harder to find.”
A page on the Free Our Internet website presents a regularly updated list of the “tech-left’s coordinated campaign to silence free speech on the Internet.”
Among the instances cited is the vendor, hired by Google, that utilized a contractor ranking Infowars as “low-quality” content, in a story first posted online by independent journalist Mike Cernovich.
As Infowars reported on May 1, 2017, Free Our Internet’s goal is to educate Americans about how leftist super-elites and their powerful corporate allies have methodically used their wealth and political influence to erode the public’s Internet freedoms and wage war on alternative media.
Founded by Donald Trump’s Maine Campaign Director Christie-Lee McNally, Free Our Internet was organized to empower individuals who support free speech and expression online, protect the diversity of ideas, and oppose government actions that undermine Internet openness and transparency.
“For years, the left and their corporate allies in Silicon Valley have paid lip service to Internet freedom,” said McNally. “In reality, they work tirelessly to undermine that very freedom by supporting clandestine efforts to make the Internet less free.”
McNally stressed that under President Obama, the Internet was taken away from the American people.
“For the tech-left, the Internet isn’t about openness and protecting the diversity of ideas. It’s about relentlessly working to control online communication, manipulating America’s political discourse to promote their own agendas and line their own pockets,” McNally continued.
“The activist and political left has found common cause with Silicon Valley monopolies – the companies that actually control the platforms citizens depend on for information and to communicate with one another,” she stressed.
