Project Veritas dropped a leaked insider tape from a whistleblower at Salesforce, showing their plan to deplatform a "broader range" of customers who have "the potential to incite politically motivated violence."
The new video, leaked by a Salesforce insider, reportedly shows that executives at the productivity software firm have a "cancel culture" mentality. This video follows the Capitol Hill riots on Jan. 6, and shows how executives reacted to that.
In the video, Bret Taylor, Salesforce President and COO: can be heard to say: "Since the events of the 6th [of January], I think one of the things that really impacts Salesforce is the national conversation about the role of technology in inciting that mob, disseminating misinformation and fomenting extremism."
He went on to say that "What we've done in light of the events of Jan. 6 is recognize a much broader range of messages have the potential to incite politically motivated violence."
"We've engaged with the RNC to communicate that no messages on behalf of President Trump and no messages questioning the validity or integrity of the election are allowed on our platform under the guidelines that they may incite violence," Taylor said.
And as for their plans to make sure people they disagree with don't use their software, Taylor said "We're looking across our customer base to make sure our technology is not being used by businesses or platforms that are inciting political violence."
Eric Loeb, Salesforce Executive VP of Government Affairs, said that "We are pausing all PAC contributions… the pause or suspension certainly includes the suspension of any contributions to members of Congress that voted to object to the [presidential election] certification."
This comes as Salesforce informed Project Veritas that the media company has been the subject of a "business decision" to end their working relationship with the company. Project Veritas reported that "No explanation or reasoning was provided."
