Florida Bill Stop Big Tech Censorship

This month a Florida lawmaker introduced the Stop Social Media Censorship Act, a bill designed to fine Big Tech companies for their mass censorship of conservatives and Christians.

Florida State Senator Joe Gruters introduced the bill last Friday in an attempt to stop the mass censorship of conservatives and Christians by hitting Big Tech giants in their pocketbook whenever censorship occurs.

According to the bill summary, it will prohibit “a social media company from using hate speech as a defense,” and authorize Florida’s “Attorney General to bring an action on behalf of a social media website user,” effectively ending Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube’s fallback censorship excuses of hate speech or violation of community standards.

The bill posits that social media companies have created a “digital public square,” and the state of Florida “has an interest in helping its citizens enjoy their free exercise of rights.”

If passed, any social media company with more than 75 million users will be fined a minimum of $75,000 for infringing on the freedom of speech of its users.

From the text of the bill:

58         (2)(a) The owner or operator of a social media website who
   59  contracts with a social media website user in this state is
   60  subject to a private right of action by such user if the social
   61  media website purposely:
   62         1. Deletes or censors the user’s religious speech or
   63  political speech; or
   64         2. Uses an algorithm to disfavor or censure the user’s
   65  religious speech or political speech.
   66         (b) A social media website user may be awarded all of the
   67  following damages under this section:
   68         1. A minimum of $75,000 in statutory damages per purposeful
   69  deletion or censoring of the social media website user’s speech.
   70         2. Actual damages.
   71         3. If aggravating factors are present, punitive damages.
   72         4. Other forms of equitable relief.
   73         (c) The prevailing party in a cause of action under this
   74  section may be awarded costs and reasonable attorney fees.
   75         (d) A social media website that restores from deletion or
   76  removes the censoring of a social media website user’s speech in
   77  a reasonable amount of time may use that fact to mitigate any
   78  damages.


It would also prevent social media companies from using nebulous definitions of hate speech from skirting these fines in a court of law, effectively ending Big Tech giants’ mass censorship.

This comes as Twitter’s head censor has been exposed as a radical left wing ideologue, and as journalist Tim Pool roundly demolished all censorship excuses during an appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast.

Twitter Censors President Trump’s Tweet about Restoring Law and Order in the Minneapolis Streets

Big Brother wants the riots to continue.

Published

Twitter is censoring a post from President Donald Trump on their platform warning that individuals in the streets of Minneapolis, Minn. who loot property will be shot.

“This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible,” the platform claims.

“These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!” Trump’s censored tweet reads.

The post is also censored on the official Twitter page of the White House:

Meanwhile, Twitter is allowing Islamic dictators to spread anti-Semitic messages on their platform.

After days of rioting and looting in Minneapolis, the violence is spreading across the country.

In Columbus, Oh., rioters have descended upon the state Capitol:

According to the Columbus Dispatch, 300 protesters blocked the intersections and there was a heavy police presence in downtown Columbus.

The protests were originally calm, but became disorderly late on the night of March 28, according to reports. WCMH Channel 4 reporter Eric Halperin reported that protesters started smashing windows at the Statehouse downtown and some were able to break inside the building. Halperin reported that law enforcement moved in to protect the Statehouse.

Rioters threw plastic bottles and other small objects at police officers earlier in the evening. Throughout the demonstration, protesters chanted “Black lives matter” and “Say his name”, referring to Floyd. The demonstrators also chanted “I can’t breathe,” which was a reference to Eric Garner’s death in New York back in 2014.

Seven people were shot in Louisville, Ky. as rioters targeted a police car due to their anti-civilizational rage:

Seven people were shot at an anti-police protest in Louisville, Kentucky, on Thursday night, just moments after riotous protestors were seen trying to flip over a police transport vehicle.

A sizable crowd of protestors were trying to flip over what looks to be a police detention car.

Remarkably, the local news reporter covering the raucous event describes the protest as “peacefully” as protestors clearly endanger others in their vicinity, those in the vehicle, and themselves by aggressively shaking a sizable police detention vehicle. The paddy wagon could have easily crushed someone inside or outside if it were toppled on its side.

As of early Friday morning, it’s still unclear who fired the shots during the scrum, with several Louisville police officers claiming that their weapons were unfired. At least one of the individuals who was shot is reported to be in critical condition, and the crowd quickly dispersed shortly after shots were fired.

The scenes from Minneapolis look like something out of a third-world sh*thole like Somalia:

Which, of course, has made Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and her daughter very happy:

President Trump is showing why he was elected as the law-and-order candidate, as he attempts to put down these riots that are causing senseless property destruction while the far-left cheers them on.
