The right is crushing it on social media, according to a new study.

Naturally, the media is calling for mass censorship as a result and labeling said right-wingers as "far right."

From EuroNews, "Far right dominates online political debate, study finds":
Online political discussion has been hijacked by fringe populist groups according to new research.

Ahead of May's European Parliament elections, data compiled by Alto Analytics showed that all over the continent, from Poland to Spain, posts on social media show a disproportionate leaning to the far right, with less than 0.1 percent of users creating around 10% of political posts.

Notable parties like Spainís VOX and Germanyís AfD (Alternative for Germany) have dominated the debate online according to the findings.

The sheer extent of the posts online has led some to believe that a lot of the content was created by automatic bots. Their dominance of the social media platforms largely focused on anti-immigration and anti-establishment voices which are some of the biggest issues facing voters in the upcoming elections.
Using social media is "hijacking it" and having popular ideas which are being embraced by the masses makes you "fringe."

Rather than actually engage in debate, just claim said populist dissidents are "bots" or "far-right extremists" in order to censor them.

The media is so pathetic it's beyond imagination. They truly are the enemy of the people.
