Republican Senators Eye Law Shielding Internet Firms From Liability for Postings By Nandita Bose | September 9, 2020 Email This Subscribe to Newsletter Email to a friend Facebook Tweet LinkedIn Print Article Article 8 Comments September 9, 2020 at 1:56 pm Cynthia says: Like or Dislike: 5 7They need to be accountable. They have become judge and jury for a far left side that would take away all our rights under the constitution. Under that “everyone” has freedom of speech and others are allowed to conclude their own opinion. If only young America would realize what Socialism is. People flee those countries for the opportunities in America because of who we are. The Democratic party is not what it was…it has become the party for people who do not respect America. Why stay here if we are so bad. Why make us what has ruined other countries. They are using these sights to only speak their cause and censor and judge any other opinion. WAKE UP AMERICA before it is too late. September 9, 2020 at 5:05 pm craig cornell says: Like or Dislike: 3 4Exactly right Cynthia. The fact that censorship against conservatives is so widespread and almost everyone on the left either doesn’t see it or doesn’t care is a frightening omen for the country. Liberals used to be the vanguard for civil rights and defense of free speech. Now, they actively support suppression of freedom of speech against conservatives and almost no one on the left objects. When two halves of the country can no longer agree on foundational principles, horrible things are possible.

Why is it you whiny republicans always use a double standard? You don’t want the government to control business until business does something you don’t like? Tough. Your hypocrisy doesn’t change things. We all see that this started just because the big orange crybaby was caught telling lies and twitter decided to stop it. That’s it. No one is fooled by your rhetoric or bloviating. We all know what this is about, and it further shows the moral depths you’ll sink to to try and spread your horrific, racist, right-wing rhetoric.

It is a cliche that lefties have no self-awareness to go along with their lack of any remaining sense of humor. But c’mon, Jon. You are embarrassing yourself. You CAN’T be this blind, can you?

If you don’t like twitter and facebook, don’t use them.” You claim people whose opinions differ with yours ‘don’t understand’, and thus imply they have no right to complain about how some media and websites censor opinions of one side and not the other side. That proves the point Cynthia made. Jon continued: “…It’s quite simple.” It is, yet you missed the point. Jon also piled on with his contradiction: “Why is it you whiny republicans always use a double standard? You don’t want the government to control business until business does something you don’t like? Tough.” Here, you point out the ‘double standard’ of having freedom to chose how the government governs people, but not having that freedom when the people don’t like how government governs on specific issues. That is NOT a ‘double standard’; it is ‘freedom of choice’ in how a People chooses to govern itself. The opposite is one of either a Monarchy, a Socialist Nation, or a Communist Dictatorship. September 9, 2020 at 6:26 pm Jon says: Like or Dislike: 4 3You don’t understand what your rights under the constitution are, Cynthia. Freedom of speech prevents the government from telling you not to say something. That’s it. If I own a club, and you come into my club screaming about 9/11 being an inside job, it’s my club. I’m allowed to kick you out. If you don’t like social media policing their content, then get off social media. You also likely have a tenuous at best grasp of socialism but we won’t go there. Aside from your attempt to blame the democratic party for all the evils of the world, you might want to open a book and read about fascism and authoritarianism. WAKE UP AMERICA is a great message, the problem is you’re completely asleep and convinced that you’re anything but. Read the constitution before you try to preach about it. September 9, 2020 at 6:32 pm Jon says: Like or Dislike: 3 3Funnily enough, you know that all the southern democrats (the racist, vile ones) went over to the Republican party after the civil rights movement, right? And you know that since Nixon and Reagan the republican party has been catering to the white supremacist vote, right? You can rant about the Democrats, but the racists and white supremacists are all in the Republican party. Hatred breeds more hatred, and the bile coming from the right-wing in this country is visible to everyone across the world. Keep lying and deflecting, no one is fooled by you.
