What is “hate,” “disinformation” and “extremist speech”?
Who decides what is “domestic extremism” and out of bounds?
It is anything that falls outside of the viewpoint of progressive activists who are around 8% of the population. This includes everyone from Donald Trump down to millions of his followers as well as all of those people whose views wouldn’t pass muster in the New York Times newsroom.
Those people have been exiled from the internet because allowing them to communicate and share their views online is too dangerous. It is unsafe and traumatizes people who are exposed to disagreement and who lack the capacity to defend their arguments when challenged. If a minority of privileged technocratic elites lose the power to act as the gatekeepers of the internet, democracy itself will die in the darkness and we will be thrust back to the days of Trump’s America which was literal fascism and white supremacy or what we have now in Georgia where the state has become “Jim Crow on steroids.”
