Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has been locked out of his LinkedIn account over his expressed opinions on climate activism and the Biden administration’s policies toward China. This alarming incident raises significant concerns about social media companies attempting to control the narrative in the upcoming election cycle, stifling voices that challenge mainstream ideologies. Ramaswamy, a former pharmaceutical entrepreneur who entered the presidential contest unexpectedly, shared screenshots of an email accusing him of spreading misinformation, hate speech, and promoting violence. The implications of this censorship go beyond private companies; it reflects a disturbing blend of corporate power and state influence. LinkedIn’s actions not only threaten free speech but also underscore the danger of biased narrative control.
