Posted on 10/23/2020 12:53:06 PM PDT by RandFan
Its rare that a debate in the world of conservative politics moves as quickly as the debate over Big Tech. Last year, when I proposed that we should understand social media platform access as a civil right, I received immense pushback from conservatives who were inclined to think we should let Facebook and Twitter do what they want, as private companies. Those voices have gotten much quieter. Thats because of two basic phenomena.
HOW THEY CENSOR
First, Twitter and Facebook suppress popular conservative influencers and activists, preventing them from plying their trade. There are too many examples of this to count, but perhaps the most egregious is that of pro-Trump meme maker Carpe Donktum. Carpe was perhaps the most popular pro-Trump meme maker in the world, with President Trump routinely sharing his content. One day, he created a meme that mocked CNNs habit of twisting every piece of news against conservatives. Twitter banned his account based on a frivolous copyright claim; then, when that claim was dropped, Twitter refused to restore his account. And why would they? After all, Carpes content was helping conservatives get elected.
Second, Twitter and Facebook outright suppress stories that benefit conservatives politically. The suppression of the New York Posts Hunter Biden story is the most obvious and worrying example. Twitters safety team prevented the sharing of any links to the Posts reporting, claiming that the reporting was the product of hacking. That claim is completely unsubstantiated, and yet Twitter has kept the Post locked out of its Twitter account without providing the slightest bit of evidence that they violated Twitters terms of service.

Enough is enough.
The free market is not a suicide pact.
Just remember that whatever power you give the federal government will eventually be wielded by the other political party.
Regulation” just puts them in the hands of corruptible government cronies. Thats where we are now.
Cause million-woman-humping basketball guy is long dead.
What progressives don’t understand, is that the CPC tatics of this small global elite will end their free speech along with “conservatives.” Haters are anyone who object to any part of the globalist/cpc agenda and whim.
Just remove the legal protections for the giants. Let people litigate and compete with them.
Any laws regulating ‘Big Tech’ will, inevitably, be turned against conservatives.
Pull their protection, and maybe trust-bust them or make the public utilities.
Calculate the value of the “in kind” contributions and put them in jail for the same per $ time as Dinesh D’souza.
