Supposedly Pro-Free Speech Alternative Platforms Still Beholden to Big Tech, Says Jeff Dornik

(Natural News) So-called alternative social media platforms that espouse free speech are still indebted to Big Tech, according to podcaster Jeff Dornik.

During his Sept. 18 appearance on the Brighteon.TV program "America Unhinged," Dornik told program host and theologian Dr. John Diamond that almost every social media platform relies on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to run. These include supposedly pro-free speech alternatives like Gettr, Locals, Rumble and former President Donald Trump's Truth Social.

According to Dornik, these platforms are only defending free speech to a certain point as they still have to play by Big Tech's rules. "They are beholden to Big Tech in so many different ways," he said.

"They position themselves as if they are going to be the platform that's taking on Big Tech. But at the same time, they are relying on them. Whether it is for their servers in the app store; whether it's Apple, Google, Amazon; whatever it is that you're talking about."

He zoomed in on Truth Social, which has been set up specifically to play by the rules of Big Tech, as an example. The platform under Trump had actually hired a Silicon Valley artificial intelligence (AI) firm to handle content moderation and censorship tasks.

This connection has resulted in the banning of Dr. Sherri Tenpenny on Truth Social. The host of the Brighteon.TV program "The Tenpenny Files, On Your Health" has been censored for repeatedly exposing the ties between the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines and the World Health Organization one too many times.

"The problem is that these social media platforms that are supposed to be free speech, supposed to be alternatives, they are still beholden to Big Tech even though they claim to be the people that are opposing Big Tech," Dornik remarked. "It's this weird relationship going on right now."

Dornik: X (formerly Twitter) now a DATA COLLECTION platform

Meanwhile, Diamond said Big Tech has the power to monitor everything that people do. Given this, he added that it has the power to shut down anyone on the internet. "I don't think people realize how much of their life is actually being under a total surveillance state with the technologies that they choose to use," the America Unhinged" host remarked.

Jumping on Diamond's remarks, Dornik warned that these alternative platforms are also collecting people's information and sending those to Big Tech and intelligence agencies at the same time. He also pointed out how Elon Musk, who purchased Twitter and renamed it to X, appears to be running a psy-op and collecting all of the people's data.

According to the host of "The Jeff Dornik Show," Musk rebranded Twitter as a free speech platform. But his hiring of Linda Yaccarino as CEO, who has worked for the mainstream media and has direct ties with the globalist World Economic Forum, appears to contradict this branding. Yaccarino reportedly claimed that freedom of speech does not equate to freedom of reach, which means that people can say anything on X but it does not mean everyone can read it.

"What [X is] actually doing is collecting all of our data … that we're posing, and then funneling that into the AI," Dornik said. He continued that in this capacity, X is serving as an "aggregator … collecting all the information on the internet."

This data collection scheme, Dornik added, is part of Musk's efforts through his xAI endeavor. To gain an advantage over ChatGPT, he plans to utilize X in order to make his chatbot the most relevant and up-to-date artificial intelligence on the planet.
