Governor Greg Abbott Claims ‘Anti-Semitic’ Social Media Platform Gab Has ‘No Place in Texas’
Texas Governor Greg Abbott repeated an anti-Christian libel against the social media provider Gab on Wednesday, abusing his position of power to declare war on the 1st Amendment.
“Anti-Semitic platforms like Gab have no place in Texas and certainly do not represent Texas values,” Abbott said.
“What does represent Texas values is legislation like this by Representative King and Representative Goldman that fights antisemitism in Texas,” he added.
Gab is not an “anti-Semitic” platform. Many of the platform’s users are Jewish. The free speech social media network permits users to post lawfully protected speech, in contrast to the notoriously censorious Big Tech monopolies.
Abbott’s statement can be seen here:
Abbott is likely basing his judgment of Gab based on propaganda produced by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), a far-left special interest group that hides behind Judaism to cloak their subversive anti-Bill of Rights agenda.
Big League Politics has reported on Gab’s defiant refusal to back down in the face of the ADL calling for the criminalization of their free speech:
“The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is calling on the Department of Justice to consider charges against the social media provider Gab and their founder Andrew Torba for allowing free speech on the platform.
ADL president Johnathan Greenblatt is claiming that Gab is responsible for the U.S. Capitol siege because it encouraged peaceful protesters to broadcast footage on the social media platform.
“The January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was perhaps one of the darkest days in American history, but it also was a deliberate and coordinated criminal act,” said Jonathan Greenblatt, ADL CEO.
“In addition to holding individuals who broke the law accountable, the authorities must fully determine whether social media platforms, particularly Gab, bear a measure of responsibility for the attack as well.” he added.
The ADL claims in a press release that Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which protects Big Tech from liability while violating the 1st Amendment of the Constitution, should not protect Gab from liability in this case. The rule of law should only apply when it benefits globalist interests, the organization argues.
“The violent storming of the Capitol on January 6 was not a constitutionally protected act, it was a dangerous criminal activity with no precedent in American history. Tragically there were several fatalities, including Officer Brian Sicknick who was murdered in cold blood,” said Greenblatt.
“If Gab or any platform intentionally facilitated such unlawful conduct, it itself may have engaged in criminal acts for which it should be held accountable,” he added.
Gab is not backing down in the face of these anti-American threats from the ADL and will continue to promote freedom of speech despite the ADL’s attempts to shut them down.
“The ADL had no other way to deplatform Gab so now they are lobbying the U.S. government to do so,” Torba announced in a post on his social media platform.”
Abbott’s lack of leadership has shown why millions of patriots have abandoned the GOP out of frustration. It seems many Republicans care more about placating foreign powers than they do about putting America first.
