IAP Calls Out Big Tech Hypocrisy on Russia

March 2, 2022

WASHINGTON – Mike Davis, Founder and President of the Internet Accountability Project, today called out Big Tech for allowing violent, pro-war Russian propaganda while regularly de-platforming conservatives.

“Vladimir Putin and his violent propaganda henchmen continue to use American Big Tech platforms to encourage genocide and war crimes against Ukrainians. Yet they remain active users on multiple American social media platforms, including YouTube and Twitter, that regularly ban conservative users and elected officials for so-called ‘disinformation.’ This is especially outrageous and hypocritical considering Google’s YouTube banned Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny at Putin’s request. Big Tech argues its interests are aligned with American national security interests, yet they continue to allow our enemies to exploit their platforms and services while they silence and de-platform conservatives exercising their free speech rights.”

“Big Tech monopolists are not patriotic; they are globalists opposed to American interests. They must be broken up to restore the American values of competition and open dialogue.”

Mike Davis is the founder and president of the Internet Accountability Project, a conservative grassroots advocacy organization that opposes Big Tech and seeks to hold these companies accountable for their bad acts. He was previously chief counsel for nominations on the Senate Judiciary Committee under the chairmanship of Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa.
