Microsoft Silences LinkedIn Account For Talking About Big Tech Censorship

( )- Peter Schweizer’s latest investigative book Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win was released this week. But if you want to promote Breitbart’s excerpted pieces from the book on LinkedIn, you might be out of luck.

According to a recent report from Breitbart News, a LinkedIn user who tried to share Breitbart’s Saturday excerpt from the book had the post removed ostensibly for violating LinkedIn’s “community policies.”

The Saturday article, titled “Peter Schweizer’s ‘Red-Handed’ Exposes Communist China’s Silicon Valley Sympathizers,” focused on how Big Tech firms have placed user privacy and US national security at risk to appease China.

The LinkedIn user posted the Breitbart article adding the comment “even if you think nothing could surprise you anymore, THIS is shocking.” The user railed against “immoral and corrupt” big tech and accused them of “kissing the ass of the CCP.” In his comment, the user referred to China’s treatment of the Uyghurs and other ethnic minorities, accusing China of “GENOCIDE,” slavery, and “CONCENTRATION CAMPS.”

However, the post was flagged with a message from LinkedIn letting the user know the post had been removed because it went against LinkedIn’s “Professional Community Policies” against “bullying.”

Microsoft, which owns LinkedIn, is one of the tech companies exposed in Schweizer’s book for purportedly working on artificial intelligence research with the Chinese military.

However, LinkedIn’s censorship of content critical of China predates Schweizer’s book.

In October, LinkedIn came under widespread condemnation when it censored an Axios reporter after she referenced her own reporting on China’s internment camps in Xinjiang on her profile.

Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win examines the American elite’s financial ties to Communist China, including politicians from both parties, Big Tech, and major corporations. Ironically, it is available through Big Tech giant Amazon.
