While Biden may be gloating over his ill-begotten victory, other governors are taking a stand against the tech behemoths that helped usher in a leftist victory in the first place.
While various antitrust suits against Facebook remain pending, the Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, who is also a strong advocate of President Trump, has taken even more steps against the monstrous companies that openly aid and abet mass surveillance of American citizens, along with significant political manipulation.
For this reason, DeSantis, who runs one of the most populous states in the nation, as well as a state that handed over a key electoral victor to Trump, has decided to take a brazen stand against big tech for various reasons, many of which relate back directly to the people themselves.
This stand includes introducing legislation that would combat big tech’s repeated censorship of conservatives, as well as challenge the monopoly that the big tech companies hold over Floridians, in terms of both monitoring and controlling.
Moreover, Florida House Speaker Chris Sprowls notes that this legislation will affect not only Facebook, but all the big tech giants that have either directly engineered or been complicit in the suffocation of conservative voices, including: Apple, Amazon, Google, Twitter, and Facebook.
DeSantis introduced this proposed legislation at a press conference in Tallassee, where he highlighted the dangers of big tech continuing along its unfettered, unregulated path.
“What began as a group of upstart technology companies from the west coast, has since transformed into an industry of monopoly communications platforms that monitor, influence, and control the flow of information in our country and among our citizens …
These platforms have played an increasingly decisive role in elections and have negatively impacted Americans who descend from orthodoxies favored by the big tech cartel.” [Source: News Max]
Absolutely correct, Governor DeSantis.
They have indeed played an increasingly divisive role in the election process, and they have played an extremely decisive, self-appointed role in censoring information critical to national security, including Hunter Biden’s endless shenanigans overseas that have enriched him and his family while simultaneously jeopardizing the safety of Americans.
Oh, by the way, remember when the fake news media was making some noise about Hunter Biden supposedly divesting his stake from a skeptical Chinese equity company? Yeah well, he still has his stake firmly implanted in that company, which is one of many egregious conflicts of interest already associated with the Biden administration.
And, given that DeSantis is a close ally of President Trump, it is unsurprising that he holds similar values to Trump, including the focus on the people, rather than the thirst for power.
“Used to be that consumers were trusted to make their own decisions about what information to consume, about which leaders to ‘follow,’ about what news to watch … Now those decisions are increasingly made by nameless, faceless boards of censors.” [Source: News Max]
Exactly. “Nameless” and “faceless” censors deciding what people should or should not believe, and all of them are employed by ultra-leftist big tech companies. What could possibly go wrong in such a scenario? If one values the truth and transparency, then quite a lot can go wrong …
In fact, it was social media’s absurd censorship of Trump that motivated the anti-big tech legislation in the first plane, as noted by Florida GOP Rep. Randy Fine, who drafted the legislation.
“What prompted me to draft this legislation was the lifetime ban of the president of the United States — the duly elected and non-removed president of the United States — forever, including after he was a private citizen, coupled with the sudden shutdown of competitors of companies by their fellow Big Tech companies.” [Source: News Max]
Big tech’s complete hypocrisy is perhaps on the fullest display when it comes to President Trump. After all, if big tech is really so concerned about “violence”, perhaps they should have disabled the communications platform for various dictators who have openly killed their citizens in the past few weeks.
For instance, the Ugandan military openly executed dozens of anti-Museveni protestors, who are unhappy with the fact Museveni has been in power since 1986 and refuses to leave. Unsurprisingly, he “won” election once more on January 14, 2021. Even after Museveni blacked out social media across the entire nation in the days leading to the election, big tech still feels no need to restrict him.
When he literally does kill his own citizens.
Many examples could persist of such hypocrisy, but the fact such events unfolded in Uganda at the same time as the United States shows what big tech’s real motivation is: total suffocation of freedom of speech, and total promotion of the globalist, communist agenda.
If big tech was really concerned with “inciting violence”, they might try looking overseas first … but, then again, they know the fake news media will never cover that anyway.
One can only hope that DeSantis succeeds in a small victory against big tech, because if enough states follow, big tech companies may slowly begin to lose their grip, right before the 2022 midterms.
