Another controversial story about ,,Diamond and Silk,, . What was happening in the courtroom and what were the results based on the statementс of the sisters we show you below in our article.
Pro-Trump duo Diamond and Silk unloaded on Democratic lawmakers on Capitol Hill Thursday; blasting the liberal legislators for “shamefully” ignoring the censorship of conservative voices on social media.
“What we are dealing with today is giving a platform to Diamond and Silk,” said Democratic Rep. Hank Johnson “You’ve made a ton of money off of Facebook, isn’t that correct?”
“Let me tell you something: Facebook censored us for six months,” fired-back Diamond, whose real name is Lynette Hardaway. “You know what? We didn’t bash Facebook. We brought to the light how Facebook has been censoring conservative voices like ourselves.”
“Shame on the ones who don’t even see that we have been censored. Yet when the Black Lives Matter people complain, everybody’s up in arms,” she added. “If the shoe was on the other foot and Mark Zuckerberg was a conservative, and we were liberal, all chains would have broken loose, you know it and I know it.”
Watch the fireworks above.
Diamond and Silk have garnered widespread support for their videos discussing the Trump administration, politics, and daily news, which they share on their Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter accounts. Trump has long lauded the pair, inviting them to his campaign rallies and to the White House for Oval Office visits.
Despite the presidential praise, however, Diamond and Silk’s foray into viral political videos has been a challenging one, thanks to Facebook’s elusive algorithm and the practice most tech giants employ of censoring their conservative users. In September, Diamond and Silk accused Facebook of limiting the reach of their videos, prompting them to contact the social media giant. They said they received the following message after their repeated inquiries:
“The Policy team has come to the conclusion that your content and your brand has been determined unsafe to the community. This decision is final and not appeal-able.”
Facebook admitted to sending that message to Diamond and Silk. However, CEO Mark Zuckerberg, amid his separate testimony before Congress, called it an “enforcement error,” according to us.
“Facebook censored our free speech!” Diamond shouted at one point on Thursday, adding that she is aware of many instances in which the platform has censored conservative voices. “It’s not fair for Mark Zuckerberg to dictate to people and tell them what they can and cannot see in their news feed. I thought this was a platform for all voices.”
Democrats on Capitol Hill attempted to downplay the importance of the Thursday hearing before the House Judiciary Committee regarding the filtering processes used by social media giants like Facebook which have disproportionately affected conservatives.
The attempts made by the Democrats to discredit Diamond and Silk on Tuesday were met by fireworks from the pro-Trump sisters who refused to be backed into a corner by powerful tech giants or establishment politicians. There is perhaps no one better to fight for the conservative cause on Capitol Hill than these two. Please share their explosive testimony!
