Clinton-linked dark money group behind campaign to pressure advertisers to dump Twitter

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Domestic terrorist style Community Organizing tactics are unfolding in the marketplace- with the Marxist left bullying people with threats of cancel culture to American corporations- if they do not obey and submit to a list of Democrat-Marxist demands.

These are all too common problems Americans have suffered through over the past few decades under Marxist domination, with the shake-down artists and race-baiting Marxist Democrats demanding a departure from the liberating system of Free Marxist Enterprise that conservatives seek after.

And Americans have had enough of it- but few people understand the origins of destructive techniques to control business and therefore control citizens, and even fewer people are brave enough to stand up to it when they know it happening- even when it threatens a popular platform like social media giant- Twitter.

Here is what is going on:

A Hillary Clinton-linked dark money group is reportedly leading a campaign to pressure advertisers into dropping Twitter unless the social media network agrees to a list of “non-negotiable” stipulations.

The group, Accountable Tech, has teamed up with a whole host of far-left groups — including GLAAD, UltraViolet, Black Lives Matter, and Media Matters — to prepare a letter for advertisers that lays out the situation.

The letter claims billionaire Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter “will further toxify our information ecosystem and be a direct threat to public safety, especially among those already most vulnerable and marginalized.”

The letter continues by noting that prior to Musk’s purchase of the social media network, Twitter had implemented certain “safeguards” to protect the so-called “vulnerable,” but that these “safeguards” have since been jettisoned by the billionaire.

As our letter from May signed by 25+ organizations, explains, Twitter advertisers must uphold 3 non-negotiable standards of community trust and safety.

Or else Elon Musk’s Twitter will become a dangerous cesspool of hate and misinformation.

See our letter:” Accountable Tech (@accountabletech) posted on Twitter, on October 27, 2022.

“Twitter has outsized influence in shaping both public discourse and industry-wide platform governance standards. While the company is hardly a poster-child for healthy social media, it has taken welcome steps in recent years to mitigate systemic risks, ratcheting up pressure on the likes of Facebook and YouTube to follow suit,” it reads.

“Musk intends to steamroll those safeguards and provide a megaphone to extremists who traffic in disinformation, hate, and harassment. Under the guise of ‘free speech,’ his vision will silence and endanger marginalized communities, and tear at the fraying fabric of democracy,” it continues.

The letter then urges advertisers to demand that Twitter “continue to uphold the practices that serve as guideposts for other Big Tech platforms.”

“We call on you –Twitter’s top advertisers – to commit to these standards as non-negotiable requirements for advertising on the platform,” it reads.

These practices include keeping accounts that were suspended for committing “egregious violations” banned, tweaking the algorithm “to prevent bad actors” from being heard, and continuing “Twitter’s commitment to transparency and researcher access.”

“As top advertisers on Twitter, your brand risks association with a platform amplifying hate, extremism, health misinformation, and conspiracy theorists. Under Musk’s management, Twitter risks becoming a cesspool of misinformation, with your brand attached, polluting our information ecosystem in a time where trust in institutions and news media is already at an all-time low,” the letter then concludes.

“Your ad dollars can either fund Musk’s vanity project or hold him to account. We call on you to demand Musk uphold these basic standards of community trust and safety, and to pull your advertising spending from Twitter if they are not,” it reads.

Accountable Tech is reportedly linked to both dark money and Hillary Clinton.

“Accountable Tech is not a standalone organization. Instead, it’s a fiscally sponsored project of the North Fund, a nonprofit incubator closely tied to a billion-dollar dark money network managed by the Arabella Advisors consulting firm, Washington D.C. business records show,” according to Fox Business.

“The left-wing group is also closely linked to Hillary Clinton’s Onward Together nonprofit, which the failed presidential contender created following her 2016 loss to Donald Trump to allow her to be a part of the resistance. In December 2020, Accountable Tech joined Onward Together as an official partner, according to a press release,” Fox Business notes.

Thank you to the 2,000+ members of the wider @OnwardTogether family who joined yesterday’s partner call.

“Our big news is that we’ve welcomed two new partners to round out 2020: @HigherHeights and @AccountableTech,” Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) posted on Twitter on December 18, 2020.

“@HigherHeights‘ mission is to build Black women’s power in and out of the election cycle, with some incredible wins in 2020. @AccountableTech is taking on the companies at the center of the misinformation crisis that has destabilized our democracy,” Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) posted on Twitter on December 18, 2020.

@OnwardTogether will work with both groups to provide grants, advice, and other support as these organizations take their work to the next level.

“Here’s to building power behind the values we share, and even more wins, in 2021. Can’t wait to get started,” Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) posted on Twitter on December 18, 2020.

“Critics say that what Accountable Tech and its allies are doing vis-a-vis Twitter is gross,” American Wire News Service reported, adding:

“It’s perfect Accountable Tech leads the posse of groups attacking Elon Musk and Twitter. These groups are cancel culture incarnate, mixing left-wing advocacy with Democratic Party politics,” Capital Research Center president Scott Walter told Fox Business.

“Accountable Tech spawned from the heart of the left — the multibillion-dollar Arabella Advisors empire of ‘dark money’ — and then was passed to Hillary Clinton’s empire at Onward Together. Americans of all political stripes should fear for their freedom if these front groups and their billionaire backers can bully Twitter,” he added.

The irony is that one of the left’s biggest complaints about Musk’s purchase of Twitter has been that he’s a billionaire. Yet it seems all of his top critics just happen to be bankrolled by billionaires themselves …
