There is growing concern that Silicon Valley is using their platforms to attack the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The Daily Signal is a July, 2018 column titled “The Bias Problem Plaguing America’s Social Media Platforms” notes:
Facebook’s new algorithm for what users see on their timeline has disproportionately harmed conservative publishers. They’re getting fewer readers while their liberal counterparts haven’t been impacted to the same degree.
Recently, Google’s employees easily convinced the company’s management to cut ties to contracts with the military.
And Google has long faced criticism from fact-checkers over manipulating search results to slight conservatives. Google also has deleted or blocked references to Jesus, Chick-fil-A, and the Catholic religion. When will it stop?
It hasn’t stopped it has gotten worse!

More anti-conservative actions from Silicon Valley
Dear TrumpTown Patriots,
One of our primary goals for TrumpTown was to launch our official iOS app. Early on, we were blessed to find a pro-Trump, conservative developer to make that happen. The TrumpTown iOS app was also the most requested feature from our users, by far.
On February 6th, after our developer put the finishing touches on the app, we submitted it to the Apple app store for review. According to Apple’s own website, a vast majority (90%) of apps are reviewed within 72 hours at the latest.
That certainly wasn’t the case for us. After the first week went by, we knew something didn’t seem right. After 4 agonizing weeks of the app being “in review,” we received an email today from the Apple review team that the TrumpTown Social Network app was officially “rejected.”
The reason given by Apple is vague and confusing at best:
“Your app includes content that many users would find objectionable and offensive. Specifically, some posts include content which contains an excessive amount of violence or gore.”
They go on to say that we can resubmit the app, but only if we “remove all potentially objectionable content from your app.” Yet, they provide zero guidelines as to what qualifies as “potentially objectionable.”
But listen, we’re not stupid. We can read between the lines.
In reality, it seems as if Apple found a vague and ridiculous way to keep TrumpTown from growing — especially as we head into another Trump campaign year. Pretty darn convenient, right?
And here’s what’s crazy about all this:
- At any given time on Twitter, there are thousands (if not more) of pornographic and violent images being posted. Yet, they have an app.
- People have live streamed suicides and other violent acts on Facebook, on multiple occasions. There are also a myriad of inappropriate pages and groups, including sexually explicit, violence, pro-terrorism, etc. Yet, they still have an app.
- The same can be said for Google — which features the largest collection of sexual, violent and otherwise inappropriate images in the world, but they still have an app.
The list goes on and on. So, it’s crystal clear that we’ve been targeted because we’re a pro-Trump platform. Without question.
We started TrumpTown to get away from the anti-conservative censorship thrust upon us by the other networks, only to find the exact same treatment from Apple.
Make no mistake — the liberal, anti-Trump tech bastion we know as Silicon Valley is doing everything they can to silence our conservative voices. A TrumpTown iOS app would have changed the game for us and our users, and they apparently nuked us because they knew that.
Do you think they would have rejected a pro-Democrat social network? Absolutely not.
In summary, we wanted to share this news with you so that you know we’ve been working hard to give you what you want, but this is out of our control.
While we won’t have an iOS app, we’ll remain online and do our best to keep our community growing, as it’s more important now than ever before.
God Bless all of our users and thank you for your support, as always.

We have seen American corporations support the Nazi party to enforce tyranny. Then it was Nazi Germany, today it is the new American Socialists. Same objectives same socialist ideology.
