(Right Country) – While liberals in America applaud the utterly un-American censoring of conservatives and the permanent banning of President Trump from social media platforms, political elites around the world have expressed shock and dismay.
As the censorship only continues to get much worse and more out of control, American liberals cheer while the majority of Congress (including both Dems and Republicans) refuse to speak up.
The leftist Big Tech Oligarchy claims that they are doing what must be done to protect Americans from “violence.” Lockstep liberals across social media platforms defend the censorship as they see it as removing “hate” and “racism.”
The truth is, if Big Tech was actually concerned about “violence” and “hate” they would have been silencing liberals since President Trump was elected in 2016. They would never allow Black Lives Matter or Antifa to have a platform. Kamala Harris would be banned.
None of it has anything to do with anything other than silencing political opposition, period. Any Americans who support this kind of censorship are wildly out of touch with what it means to be an American.
It seems as though foreign leaders and politicians have a better understanding of American values and ideals than many actual Americans.
Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel (pictured at top), who has been no fan of President Trump, was among the first to speak out against Big Tech’s un-American censorship and permanent ban of President Trump, calling it “problematic.”
The German government has also warned that this is setting a very dangerous precedent and Merkel further believes that social media giants should not have the power to determine who gets to partake in free speech and who doesn’t.
Indeed, she is right. Others have taken notice as well and are speaking out. The French government has said they are “shocked” at Twitter’s ban of President Trump and has asserted that Big Tech is a threat to democracy.
Infowars reports that Junior Minister for European Union Affairs Clement Beaune said that Big Tech’s decision to silence the President of the United States proves the need for tighter regulations.
“This should be decided by citizens, not by a CEO,” he told Bloomberg TV on Monday. “There needs to be public regulation of big online platforms.”
Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire has shared similar sentiment saying that “the digital oligarchy” is “one of the threats” to democracy and that they need to be reigned in by the government. Something President Trump attempted but was not successful thanks to Congress.
While Republicans and Democrats alike have sat by as Big Tech has grown in power and have even refused to remove protections for them, Poland may be leading the way in showing the world how to regulate Big Tech.
If passed, a new law in Poland would result in social media companies being fined $2.2 million for the censoring of lawful free speech.
Maybe it’s time for American lawmakers to finally wake up and do what is right and necessary to protect America from this kind of tyranny.
