Big Tech Workers Have Donated 12 Times More Campaign Cash to Democrats than Republicans

The Internet Accountability Project (IAP) just released a report showing that Big Tech employees donate many times more cash to Democrats than they do to Republican candidates.

Research by the IAP, whose mission it is to “rein in big tech before it’s too late,” found that employees of Facebook and Twitter have contributed over $5.5 million to Democrats while contributing less than $435,000 to Republicans. That is a ratio of 12 to one.

Per Breitbart News:

A portion of the money donated to Democrats as a whole includes $72,838 to Democrats on the House Oversight Committee. Meanwhile, the Republicans who sit on the committee have only received $1,950. In terms of percentage, the committee Democrats have received 97.39 percent of total contributions compared to Republicans’ 2.61 percent. Twitter employees gave zero money to Republicans on the Oversight Committee.

Big tech’s collaboration with House Democrats has not gone unnoticed.

Rep. James Comer (R-KY), the top Republican on House Oversight, charged “Democrats and their Big Tech allies” of exploiting the January 6 Capitol attack to silence conservative voters, as Facebook and Twitter quickly used the event as a cover to ban former President Donald Trump from their platforms on January 8 while deeming free speech rival Parler a “viable threat” to their “dominance” over social media.

It should not really be a big surprise, of course.

Big Tech corporations themselves also donate far more to Democrats than to the GOP, and at an even more lopsided rate than their employees.

According to The Observer, no Big Tech company gave more than 14 percent of the hundreds of millions they gave to political causes to Republicans in 2020.
