BREAKING: President Trump to sign Executive Order on Social Media Censorship
Developments to follow (if any) Developing story...
(Excerpt) Read more at twitter.com ...
Facebook will be banned from any banning attempts.
Period. Period. Period. (As Biden would say).
A little explanation would be helpful.
I heard Gov. Huckabee today on Outnumbered and he said social media should work like phone lines. They should provide the lines (platforms) and let the people say what they want.
Trump, Trump, Trump...
From what I read it has been in the works since 2019, so it isnt some overnight thing.
It’s a developing and breaking story.
I hope Jack Posobiec is right. Lets be patient and see..
I honestly don’t see what an executive order can accomplish in this venue.
Well, this should get real interesting.
The mainstream media does not have freedom of speech. They have a powerful collective hysteria sway, much like shouting fire in theater is illegal.
Require that all social media platforms and websites permit Conservative Viewpoints.
Agree with Huckabee.
These sites are are common carriers.
Today RL mentioned the WH has a plan in place just in case he gets banned from the twits.
Looks like he made a move to either get the censorship under control or remove the “we are just a platform” protections OR they kick him off and 70 million followers move to wherever he goes.
I think it would overturned by the courts..
Still, it’s a good effort.
I don’t see how it can be constitutional.

Yep, time to get Twitter & Facebook & other big social media to not infringe on our constitutional rights.
This is a tough one. These are private companies that in theory should be able to delete or ban him at will. No different than FR. If they want to be liberal, conservatives need an alternative.
The MSM also owns the nations telecom infrastructure.
