(NationalSentinel) Conservative attorney Harmeet Dhillon toldÂ Fox Business host Lou Dobbs Wednesday that there is a “digital civil war” underway between Left-leaning tech giants like Facebook, Twitter, and Google and Republican Trump supporters who must “stand up” to those companies or “live on their knees.”
“Well, this is not withoutÂ precedent Lou. Of courseÂ we’ve seen many Republicans over last few years, Paul Ryan andÂ others kind ofÂ playÂ Marquess of QueensberryÂ rules when the left has long since abandoned any shred of decency,” Dhillon noted.
“AndÂ today whatÂ any sane person needs to learnÂ from the mob is thatÂ you can never bendÂ your knee to the mob andÂ apologize to them because they will simply take it as the beginning of a further negotiationÂ to eliminate you,” she added.
Dhillon’s comments come as Dr. Robert Epstein, a senior research psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology, said in anÂ interviewÂ withÂ The Epoch TimesÂ that Google is planning to employ a number of techniques, mostly through â€œephemeral experiences,â€ that are designed to shift votes in the 2020 election.
â€œGoogle will actively interfere in the 2020 elections,â€ Epstein said. â€œTheyâ€™ll actively interfere in their lobbying efforts, theyâ€™ll actively interfere with their political donations, and theyâ€™ll actively interfere using the online methods of manipulation that Iâ€™ve studied and probably other methods that I havenâ€™t yet discovered,â€ he told the news agency.
Leaked internal emails from Google last year showed that employees specifically discussed launching â€œephemeral experiencesâ€ to counter Trumpâ€™s then-travel ban,Â The Wall Street Journal reported.
Ephemeral experiences are defined as brief online moments were information is instantaneously generated, as in search suggestions. But they arenâ€™t stored anywhere in databases and thus cannot be tracked, giving the company plausible deniability.
In July duringÂ congressional testimony, Epstein testified that should all tech giants including Google, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube come together to support one candidate next year, which seems likely and which isnâ€™t going to be Trump, then they could shift 15 million votes.
In her interview with Dobbs, Dhillon, the Republican National Lawyers Association Vice President, cited one of the most recent notable examples of what she notes is Left-wing bias by Twitter.
“Just today Twitter — actually in the last 24 hours –Â Twitter took the official campaign account ofÂ Mitch McConnell, the number two most powerful Republican in the United States, offline because McConnell wasÂ trying to document threats against him,” she said.
“There is no doubt that we’re inÂ an absolute digital civil war inÂ this country.Â And Republicans need to beÂ prepared to stand up andÂ fight backÂ or live on their knees. AndÂ I’m notÂ prepared to do that,” she added.
Epstein has previously noted that Google and the tech giants have worked to interfere in elections.
In March, he released dataÂ analyzedÂ from Google searches he said were linked to a trio of highly competitive congressional races in Southern California that were won by Democrats. In doing so, Epsteinâ€™s research team discovered that Googleâ€™s â€œclear Democrat biasâ€ likely flipped those seats away from GOP candidates.
