U.S. Senator Ted Cruz is leading the fight against the evil tech giants (YouTube, Google, Facebook, Twitter) which are universally engaged in politically-motivated censorship, de-platforming and shadowbanning. In a Senate hearing yesterday, Sen. Cruz confronted the tech giants with the truth about their dishonest censorship practices. As part of the hearing, he proposed three solutions to rein in the tech platforms that almost everyone agrees are out of control, “rogue” corporations engaged in election meddling, politically-motivated censorship and fraudulent business practices.

“The Texas Republican suggested that they could amend Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which regulates social media companies such as Facebook, Google, and Twitter as neutral platforms,” reports Breitbart News.

Breitbart specifically points out the insanity of how Big Tech is censoring independent views on vaccines and vaccine dangers, writing:

For instance, Facebook and its subsidiary Instagram decided to define the “truthiness” on the alleged dangers of vaccines and subsequently banned anti-vaccine content on their platforms.

Further, Facebook decided to ban “white nationalist” and “white separatist” content on their platforms, even though they continue to allow content from Antifa and other controversial groups on their platforms.

Sen. Cruz explained why the tech giants have forfeit their Sec. 230 immunity and should no longer enjoy legal protections, saying, “If Big Tech wants to be partisan and political speakers it has that right, but it has no entitlement to a special immunity from liability under Section 230 that the New York Times doesn’t enjoy, that the Washington Post doesn’t enjoy, that nobody else enjoys except for Big Tech.”

Sen. Cruz also proposed using the power of the federal government’s antitrust laws to address Big Tech’s anticompetitive behavior and monopolistic business practices. In Cruz’s own words:

The second potential avenue for Big Tech is antitrust laws. Applying the antitrust laws is complicated but by any standard measure, the big tech companies are larger and more powerful than the Standard Oil was when it was broken up. They’re larger and more powerful than AT&T when it was broken up, and if we have tech companies using their monopoly to censor political speech, I think that raises real antitrust issues.

Sen. Cruz correctly exposes the FRAUD being committed every day by Facebook, Twitter, Google and other tech platforms
