Mark Zuckerberg is trying to dominate the digital town square.
Conservatives are fed up with him having so much power over public discourse.
Now, he’s panicking after a pro-Trump Congressman made this shocking move.
Big Tech has revolutionized the way people communicate in the digital age.
Censorship against conservatives is of course rampant on their platforms.
Big Tech’s one-sided rules ignore some of the most dangerous activities online.
While President Trump was wiped off every Big Tech platform, they still allow terrorists like Iranian leader Ayatollah Khamenei to operate freely.
This isn’t just outrageous hypocrisy from Big Tech but a national security risk.
Terrorist groups have used social media platforms to organize, recruit and promote violence against the U.S.
Facebook has been embroiled in controversy from radical Islamic terror groups using it to promote violence against the U.S. and Israel.
Twitter only recently banned Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah from their platform but other related accounts operate with impunity.
Hezbollah killed 241 U.S. Marines in a suicide attack in Lebanon in 1983.
Facebook-owned WhatsApp was a key communication tool for Taliban soldiers as they worked to retake Afghanistan last year.
Big Tech is looking the other way against terrorists on their platforms to carry out their crusade to clamp down on conservatives.
Speech from conservatives is considered to “promote violence” while the real violent actors are ignored.
One pro-Trump Congressman has had enough of the infuriating behavior.
Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina introduced legislation to end Big Tech’s aiding and abetting of terrorists.
He’s leading the charge for the No Publicity for Terrorists Act which would clamp down on this outrageous abuse.
The bill would require Big Tech platforms remove terrorists groups and their allies.
Companies could face a $50,000 fine for each violation and possible jail for their leadership.
Cawthorn told the Washington Free Beacon, “Big Tech is scared to death of a MAGA reemergence in America. They know they won’t win the argument on policy or politics, so they have moved to silence, deplatform, and ban prominent conservative voices, including President Donald Trump.”
“It shows their outrageous bias: They claim President Trump is a danger to public discourse, but allow terrorist organizations, hate groups, and dictators to remain on their platforms? My legislation holds them accountable for their assault on conservatives and exposes their outrageous double standard,” Cawthorn continued.
Republican Bob Good of Virginia, one of the bill’s co-authors, slammed Big Tech.
“There is no excuse or justification for Big Tech to give known terrorists a dangerous platform. This is especially egregious given Big Tech’s track record of regularly and unjustifiably censoring conservative voices like President Trump, and Members of Congress.” Good remarked.
It remains to be seen how far the bill will get in this session of Congress but the groundwork is being laid to hold Big Tech accountable for their behavior.
