Sen. Chris Murphy: ‘Democracy Depends On’ Banning Sites Like InfoWars
A Democrat Senator from Connecticut called for a ban on sites that he believes spread “hate” and “lies” on social media platforms like Facebook and YouTube.
“Infowars is the tip of a giant iceberg of hate and lies that uses sites like Facebook and YouTube to tear our nation apart,” said Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) on Twitter. “These companies must do more than take down one website. The survival of our democracy depends on it.”

InfoWars’ biggest “crime” was that it constantly challenged government narratives. According to Murphy, the “survival of our democracy” depends on banning sites that ask questions of it. Orwell could not have dreamed this up.
Murphy is notoriously leftist. He is one of the most outspoken anti-Second Amendment members of the Senate. It makes sense that he would be anti-First Amendment as well. Democrats like Murphy seek power and control. The more they are questioned, the less power they have.
Big League Politics reached out to Murphy’s office and asked if the Senator believes in the First Amendment. His spokesperson did not return the request for comment.
