Oregon Democrat is threatening Big Tech to push even MORE censorship of independent media

If it wasn’t bad enough that the Big Tech firms like Facebook, YouTube, Google, Apple, Twitter, and others have taken to shadow banning or outright censoring conservative pro-POTUS Trump voices, one Democratic senator wants even more of the same, while threatening “consequences” for those who don’t comply.

As reported by Infowars, which has been deplatformed from just about every major tech media and e-commerce platform in existence, Sen. Ron Wyden from the insanely blue state of Oregon wants to take censorship to a whole other level. He’s written legislation that calls for “consequences” if Big Tech platforms don’t ban people he thinks should have no right to free speech or expression (like Alex Jones, founder of Infowars).

Paul Joseph Watson notes:

In an interview with Recode, Wyden, the senior U.S. Senator from Oregon, said that platforms should be punished for hosting content that he deems to go against “common decency.”

Naturally, Wyden thinks that far-Left speech authoritarians like him should get to decide how to define “common decency.”

“I think what the Alex Jones case shows, we’re gonna really be looking at what the consequences are for just leaving common decency in the dust,” he said.

“What I’m gonna be trying to do in my legislation is to really lay out what the consequences are when somebody who is a bad actor, somebody who really doesn’t meet the decency principles that reflect our values, if that bad actor blows by the bounds of common decency, I think you gotta have a way to make sure that stuff is taken down.”

That statement is so chilling and so not “our values” that the founders would likely have cast Wyden out of the Constitutional Convention for even suggesting that government be empowered to curb, limit, censor, or ban any speech that doesn’t constitute a crime (such as libel or slander).

And by the way, what is so different about what Alex Jones says versus the insanity that comes out of the mouths of Left-wing hacks, stooges, pretend journalists, and lawmakers every single day? If you look at how conservatives and pro-Trump supporters have been maligned on a daily basis – called Nazis, bigots, racists, homophobes, and much worse – if we applied Wyden’s ‘speech police’ regulations they’d be among the first to suffer “consequences” … right?

Once back in power, Democrats will censor all of us – and call it ‘fair’
