Justin Amash Protects Big Tech’s Immunity Privileges to Enact Orwellian Nightmare

Amash is opposing Sen. Josh Hawley’s reform to protect free speech in the digital public square.

Impeachment cheerleader Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) is rallying to protect Big Tech monopolists and their ability to capriciously kick conservative and libertarian voices off their platforms while keeping the legal immunity granted to them by the federal government.

Amash took to his Twitter account to whine against the Ending Support for Internet Censorship Act, a common sense reform that will be introduced by Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) to eliminate special privileges for social media corporations if they acted as publishers rather than as neutral platforms.

Amash claims that removing Big Tech’s sweetheart exemptions in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, thus protecting free speech from Orwellian corporate censorship, would somehow be dystopian.

Section 230 exempts social media entities like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter from being liable for user-published content on their platforms. They are not regulated as publishers, but have started behaving like ones in recent years by implementing Draconian censorship policies to strangle the voices of primarily right-wing dissidents.

“With Section 230, tech companies get a sweetheart deal that no other industry enjoys: complete exemption from traditional publisher liability in exchange for providing a forum free of political censorship,” Hawley said in a statement regarding the need for his legislation. “Unfortunately, and unsurprisingly, big tech has failed to hold up its end of the bargain.”

“There’s a growing list of evidence that shows big tech companies making editorial decisions to censor viewpoints they disagree with,” Hawley added. “Even worse, the entire process is shrouded in secrecy because these companies refuse to make their protocols public. This legislation simply states that if the tech giants want to keep their government-granted immunity, they must bring transparency and accountability to their editorial processes and prove that they don’t discriminate.”

Amash’s faux-libertarian viewpoints, as usual, echo that of the billionaire oligarch Koch Brothers. They are opposing changes in the regulatory framework as well, considering the status quo where conservative, libertarian, and pro-Trump voices are capriciously censored by Silicon Valley liberals to be perfectly acceptable.

“Senator Hawley’s misguided legislation sets the table for stricter government control over free expression online,” Americans for Prosperity Policy Analyst Billy Easley said in a statement.

“Eroding the crucial protections that exist under Section 230 creates a scenario where government has the ability to police your speech and determine what you can or cannot say online,” Easley added.

The Koch bros’ network is even teaming with George Soros and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to devise new ways to enforce censorship on digital platforms. Amash is a regular speaker at events hosted by the Koch-funded Young Americans for Liberty.

Hawley remains undaunted by the derision from Amash and his powerful globalist backers, as he continues his mission to actually protect freedom of speech:

WOW: Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Caught LYING UNDER OATH about Censorship in Senate Testimony

This is damning.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is giving testimony to the U.S. Senate today after being subpoenaed over his social media monopoly’s brazen censorship and electoral interference with regards to leaks of Hunter Biden’s embarrassing personal information from the laptop from hell.

Things are not going well for Dorsey, as Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has pointed out. He noted, ironically in a tweet, that Dorsey lied under oath while giving his testimony on Wednesday.

Dorsey told Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) that anyone can now share the Hunter Biden stories from the New York Post on his platform. Individuals on Twitter soon went on Twitter to prove in real time that he was lying.

Other clips from Dorsey’s appearance before the Senate are not much better, as the disheveled tech CEO fluttered in the limelight.

Big League Politics has reported on Twitter’s aggressive role in suppressing the Hunter Biden story, which could be seen as a form of electoral interference considering the censorship campaign is being perpetrated in large part to help his father’s presidential hopes:

A day after censoring the New York Post for exposing Hunter Biden’s emails, Twitter has doubled down by censoring a newly published article that explains Hunter’s crony and possibly illicit business dealings with China.

“Twitter is censoring us — again,” announced Post editor Sohrab Ahmari in a tweet.

“This is what I — an editor at America’s oldest continuously published newspaper, founded by Alexander Hamilton — get when I try to post our follow-up story on Hunter’s financial shenanigans with the Chinese regime,” he added.

When Ahmari attempted to post the article, he received a “Tweet Not Sent” notice that read as follows: “Your Tweet could not be sent because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful. Visit our Help Center to learn more.”

The Post report details Hunter’s interactions with a powerful Chinese energy firm. The revelations in the article indicate that Hunter was receiving millions from Chinese interests because of his name. The Biden campaign is attempting to ignore the scandal while the Big Tech overlords attempt to keep the news from going viral.

“There is no need for comment on any so-called information provided by Rudy Giuliani,” Biden lawyer George Mesires said.

“He has been pushing widely discredited conspiracy theories about the Biden family, openly relying on actors tied to Russian intelligence. His record of dishonesty in these matters speaks for itself,” Mesires added.

Dorsey should be punished to the fullest extent of the law for lying under oath. Big Tech is a bigger threat to democracy than the Russians could ever hope to be.
