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.

Media Lied: President Trump Did Not Claim Operation Desert Storm Occurred During the Vietnam War
The corporate media has been peddling an edited clip.
The mainstream media falsely reported that President Donald Trump confused the setting of ‘Operation Desert Storm,’ a military name for the 1990 Gulf War, during a July 4th speech on the White House lawn on Sunday. The media accused President Trump of falsely stating that Desert Storm was a military operation that took place during the Vietnam War.
Liberals associated with political organizations such as the Lincoln Project and media groups such as PoliticusUSA displayed edited video clips and made dishonest claims that the President had conflated Operation Desert Storm and the Vietnam war, hoping to score a partisan political point.
Trump just said we fought Operation Desert Storm in the jungles of Vietnam, but please tell us again which Presidential candidate lacks cognitive functions.

In contrast to the claims of partisan liberals, President Trump clearly drew a distinction between combat operations in Vietnam and in Kuwait in 1990, having referred to the events in successive fashion.

Other mainstream media pundits and journalists shared claims that Trump had made the mistake, going on to delete their false claims after the erroneous nature of the claim became apparent on social media. Twitter ultimately ended up labeling the claims that the President conflated the two as “manipulated media,” possibly hoping to score credibility with conservatives by executing the bare minimum of content moderation as the platform rampantly censors the free speech of President Trump, conservatives, and right-wingers.
A reporter from MSNBC is yet to delete her tweet falsely accusing the President of confusing Desert Storm and Vietnam, even after the clip she originally retweeted has been delete in acknowledgment of its dishonesty.
Operation Desert Storm…in the jungles of…Vietnam. https://t.co/QEr698vhJ4
