Lawmakers Push For Social Media Giants To Face Lawsuits For Policing

GOP lawmakers are pushing for costly lawsuits against extreme, left-leaning social media giants so that they can force such companies to pay hefty fines for policing content.

Interestingly, it appears that some liberal politicians are also in favor of such a move.

“Many protest the deletion of political and religious statements, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures,” The Associated Press reported. “Democrats, who also have called for greater scrutiny of big tech, are sponsoring the same measures in at least two states.”

Per the report, Republican lawmakers in favor of the bill hail from 12 different states — with more surely ready to jump on board soon.

Twitter and Facebook have come under fire from Republicans for deleting posts and suspending accounts that promote conservative values. The social media networks have used buzzwords such as “racism” and “hate speech” to justify the suspensions.

Both Twitter and Facebook make it pretty clear that those who don’t think like they do are not worth hearing — completely eliminating the idea of freedom of thought, especially opposing thought, in the process.

  1. I was banned from Twitter for my reply to one of Pres. Biden’s tweets in which he stated vaccines are safe and encouraged everyone to get it. My response was “Joe, you can’t say this with 100% positivity. I have a friend who was medically retired from military service because he was paralyzed by an annual flu vaccination. More studies and research need to be done.”

    I appealed the ban and the ban was upheld. I wrote them once more and provided statements from the FDA and CDC which support what I tweeted but they refuse to answer.
