Obama and his campaign army were heralded for their sagacious exploitation of Facebook and social media during the ’08 and ’12 presidential campaigns. Obama was held up as a cool, cutting edge candidate in touch with cultural zeitgeist of America, and wasn’t that really special? But when President Trump employed similar marketing techniques, were such plaudits given to him? Hardly. The party of treason in concert with their propaganda arm, the enemedia, deemed it illegal and treasonous. So it is a most welcome piece of news that the Obama campaign might be held to a similar standard of leftwing persecution.
Nonetheless, kudos to Missouri’s Republican attorney general Josh Hawley who served an investigative subpoena to Facebook’s Menlo Park offices on Monday, demanding a wide-ranging group of documents related to the social media giant’s handling of user data.
Hawley’s office has active probes into other Silicon Valley companies, most notably into Google.
If Hawley chooses to lead the much-needed battle against social media censorship and totalitarianism, he has a big future. Huge.
