A Massachusetts police chief was placed on leave after college students found his Twitter account and discovered that he “liked” tweets made by President Donald J. Trump and the National Rifle Association.
Local media reports that Mount Holyoke and Smith College Police Chief Daniel Hect has been placed on administrative leave after college students complained about Hect’s social media activity.
While no specific posts were mentioned, the college students discovered that Hect had used the “like” feature to show support for tweets made by President Trump and the NRA. 22 News reported that students “were outraged to discover conservative tweets the chief had liked” on the platform.
Mount Holyoke’s President Sonya Stephens buckled to the leftist outrage of her students, and came to the decision to place him on administrative leave due to fears that the chief would be unable “to develop the level of trust required to engage in community policing.”
It is unknown when, or if, the police chief will be allowed to return to his position.
The incident shares similarities with former Google employee James Damore, who was fired from the company after writing a memo the company considered controversial.
In an interview given to Big League Politics during CPAC in 2018, Damore told editor-in-chief Patrick Howley that “Ultimately everyone that has power will try to censor ideas that threaten that power, and I think that’s behind a lot of what we see.”
He added that “A lot of it is just political, where people see ideas that go against their political ideology as offensive, so they try to censor those,” while conservatives do not treat those on the opposite side of the political spectrum with the same level of disrespect.
Biden Rebuffs Advisors’ Demands to Censor OANN, Newsmax, Fox News By Executive Order
Biden advisors have sought to ban conservative media from federal housing.
According to a White House source, President Joe Biden has rebuffed suggestions that he sign an executive order that would ban certain conservative news networks from being broadcast to federal housing complexes.
The order would’ve named One America News Network, Newsmax, and Fox News by name. The former two networks are known for a broadly pro-Donald Trump editorial stance, with Fox split between establishment liberal and conservative content.
Authoritarian liberals advising President Biden are said to have suggested that Biden crack down on television and media networks which dissent from the administration’s policy views, citing the raucous US Capitol protest earlier this month as an imperative to clamp down on the opposition.
The executive order in question would most prominently affect military housing, where the cable channels in question are accessible through cable services contracted through the military services. The order, which never progressed beyond suggestions to President Biden, may even have gone so far as to restrict the television channels from private housing organizations contracted to provide lodging to military service members and their families.
Biden even went so far as to dismiss the censorship attempt as “nonsense,” according to a White House source familiar with the exchange. It’s likely that attempts to sign and enforce it would’ve been shut down by the judiciary, representing a clear attempt to discriminate against the very viewing of political expression within federal buildings.
As an authoritarian streak grows more prominent in the intolerant attitudes of American liberals, it appears President Biden himself is at least skeptical to the slightest degree of governmental censorship attempts, although Biden has never so much as even made reference to the censorship practices utilized by Big Tech companies against tens of millions of Americans.
