UPDATE: Tucker’s monologue tonight is about the censorship of this article.
For those who are swept up in the election hysteria:
Next week when the full Senate returns we should VOTE on my bill allowing Americans to sue #BigTech for censorship & unfair treatment— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) October 14, 2020
Facebook, Twitter make editorial decision to limit NY Post Biden story // This is communist tyranny in the raw… https://t.co/HUtg0vVPDb— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) October 14, 2020
Another good example of why you should join ?@parler_app?!— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) October 14, 2020
“So much for Facebook’s claims to be a neutral platform: One of its top execs just put the social media giant firmly in the pro-Biden camp. And Twitter soon followed suit.” https://t.co/zhIEM54lUB
TWITTER HAS DISABLED THE LINK to the @nypost story. @jack what the hell??— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) October 14, 2020
I don’t know if the allegations are true—Qs that deserve to be answered.
It’s a serious news publication raising evidence of corruption at the highest levels.@twitter shouldn’t act as Biden’s PR team. https://t.co/1KiKCAJijD
Big Tech is trying to steal the election.— Rep. Matt Gaetz (@RepMattGaetz) October 14, 2020
This is a Big Tech information coup. This is digital civil war.— Sohrab Ahmari (@SohrabAhmari) October 14, 2020
I, an editor at The New York Post, one of the nation’s largest papers by circulation, can’t post one of our own stories that details corruption by a major-party presidential candidate, Biden. pic.twitter.com/BKNQmAG19H
Not being able to tweet a link to the New York Post story is absolutely insane— Rich Lowry (@RichLowry) October 14, 2020
Big Tech wants to control what you see so they can control what you think and how you act.— Rep. Matt Gaetz (@RepMattGaetz) October 14, 2020
The US presidential election interference is happening on a massive scale — this day — by our Russia-collusion-disinformation-promoting media and by leftist tech companies. They must be stopped before they destroy the country. Do what you can and do it quickly.— Mollie (@MZHemingway) October 14, 2020
Facebook and Twitter are now choosing what stories can be shared about Joe Biden on their platforms. Conservatives are having a meltdown about it after squandering their majority cutting their taxes and doing absolutely nothing about the problem but grandstanding about censorship.
“Facebook and Twitter took action on Wednesday to limit the distribution of a New York Post story making unconfirmed claims about Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, leading President Trump’s campaign and allies to charge the companies with censorship.
Both social media companies said the moves were aimed at slowing the spread of potentially false information. But they gave few details about how they reached their decisions, sparking criticism about the lack of clarity and consistency with which they apply their rules. …”
Sen. Josh Hawley introduced a bill about Big Tech censorship over a year ago last summer in the Senate. It predictably went nowhere. The GOP went to sleep.
Note: Did you learn anything from this post? Did these people do anything for you in Congress except soak up your time with their whining about their victimhood?
In the last two months, I have devoted less time to politics and current events and more time to history. Whether it is Antifa violence, the destruction of monuments or Big Tech censorship, the GOP just kind of stands by and watches it unfold like a spectator. It does nothing to address any pressing problem. It is a waste of everyone’s time to watch them do nothing too.
