It looks like the harbingers Dr. Robert Epstein had warned the country about regarding liberal Big Tech’s influence in elections is coming true.
Big Tech giant Facebook informed the Media Research Center that it would be partnering with the nonpartisan digital encyclopedia Ballotpedia and the radical left-wing organization Democracy Works to help formulate the online platform’s 2020 election strategy. What makes this partnership so damning is that Democracy Works in particular has been heavily funded with millions collectively by at least six liberal organizations between 2012 and 2019.
Also concerning is that Big Tech giant Google is also working with “Democracy Works to make sure it’s surfacing only true information — and not, Google engineering VP Cathy Edwards said, things like false claims of victory,” according to Protocol. [Emphasis added.]
Democracy Works proclaims itself to be “nonpartisan,” but its donors, biased staff and its heavily partisan board of directors shows that it is anything but nonpartisan.
Democracy Works listed four of the six liberal organization “funders” that have dumped funds into its coffers over the years. The list included the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, liberal billionaire Pierre Omidyar’s Democracy Fund, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and the historically anti-Israel Rockefeller Brothers Fund. Omitted from Democracy Works’s list of funders was Omidyar’s Omidyar Network Fund and the liberal Tides Foundation.
In total, these six liberal organizations alone have given at least $10,628,999 collectively to Democracy Works between 2012-2019.

Just a glance at the Democracy Works blog reveals its leftist political stance. Democracy Works Co-founder and Executive Director Seth Flaxman published a blog June 4 headlined, “Our Democracy Fails If We Don’t Protect Black Lives.” In the article, he decried America as being built on slavery:
For over 400 years, America has systematically and violently oppressed Black life. Historically, Black communities have been forced to fight for rights afforded to white citizens in a country built on Black enslavement, [emphasis added].
He also suggested that racism is embedded into American society:
If we attempt to improve our democracy without reckoning with the racism embedded in our way of life, we will only perpetuate the harms Black voices have enumerated for centuries, [emphasis added].
Flaxman then attacked America again, as he wrote on the subject of diversity of his organization. “Incorporating the full humanity of our Black teammates means supporting the need to process the trauma of living in a country that dehumanizes Black life on an on-going basis.” [Emphasis added.]
Trying to influence the election? in favor of Biden and the Democrats?
