The Democrats are using the Capitol Hill riot as a justification for an authoritarian push.
Politicians have called for unthinkable actions against American citizens.
Now, Nancy Pelosi’s pals are building a roadmap to continue her sham January 6th witch hunt.
The Democrats are making it clear where they believe they are vulnerable.
They have been attacking sensible election reforms passed by Republican legislatures because they seemingly want election protections to be as porous as possible for some reason.
The Democrats have also been using the January 6th House Select Committee as a pretext to go after Donald Trump, his associates, and even his supporters.
The Left has also been eager to control all tech platforms under the guise of combating “misinformation.”
Now, Nancy Pelosi’s state of California is building a roadmap that could put all tech platforms under their thumb.
California launched a new online privacy regulation department, the first of its kind.
Ashkan Soltani, the man tapped to head the agency, is building it from scratch with a budget of $10 million.
The New York Times reported that “Mr. Soltani faces the daunting task of overseeing the first government body in the United States with the sole job of regulating how Google, Facebook, Amazon and other companies collect and use data from millions of people. The office, the California Privacy Protection Agency, will be a more than 30-person group with a $10 million annual budget to help enforce the state’s privacy law, which is among the most stringent in the country.”
While online privacy is an issue that has bipartisan support, the creation of a new government bureau should give Americans pause.
First, new departments almost always become permanent, no matter how wasteful, harmful, or redundant they may be.
Also, government departments are notorious for mission creep – and it’s unlikely to be long before what they’re doing under the guise of protecting online privacy broadens out to encompass other state goals.
For example, it’s not inconceivable for the state to block certain websites on the grounds of “privacy concerns.”
Fringe sites would be the first to get blocked, but then it would quickly spread from there, which is precisely what happened with counter-narrative voices on social media.
The Times added that “California’s approach will test whether having an agency solely for policing online privacy can make the United States a tougher regulator of tech giants.”
That one sentence sums up the project in a nutshell.
If the agency “thrives,” it could be replicated and broadened out.
So-called Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen called for Facebook and other platforms to be regulated due to “disinformation” and “harmful content” for minors.
This new agenda could be an initial step in the establishment putting Big Tech firmly in its grasp.
