Social media has been given the authority to control speech.
Censorship has become one of the biggest threats to the country, and it’s happening on a massive scale because of Big Tech platforms.
And Banks just ripped Big Tech giants for this nightmarish thing they did.
Indiana congressman Jim Banks is calling out Twitter for suspending him from the platform.
Banks’ “thought crime” was referring to transgender DHS official Rachel Levine as a man, which is biologically true.
But the Left’s push to redefine language now means that politicians, unelected bureaucrats, and Big Tech overlords get to decide what is true and what is not.
“Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) slammed far-left Silicon Valley tech giant Twitter today for censoring his official account, which was locked after he referred to Rachel Levine, the transgender assistant secretary of health at the Department of Health and Human Services, as a man. Rep. Banks is a leader in the congressional Republican party. He is chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC), a group of conservative GOP lawmakers. 158 of the 211 Republican members of congress are part of the RSC, making it the largest ideological caucus in the House. Tweeting from his personal account, Rep. Banks slammed Twitter for hindering his ability to reach his constituents.”
The Left constantly plays this game where any criticism of them or their ideas is a form of “hate speech” or “targeted harassment” or “dangerous” or “incitement to violence.”
It’s simply a way to frame their positions as morally righteous, which makes it easier to censor.
But more and more Americans are getting sick of it.
Nobody voted for this radical shift in language, yet it’s being shoved down their throats nonetheless.
Banks pointed out that Twitter’s suspension hindered his ability to reach his constituents.
Banks said in a statement:

Twitter executives and “woke” content moderators should not be allowed to determine the parameters of free speech in America, especially when Big Tech platforms are essentially operating as arms of the state.
