Sen. Josh Hawley Takes on Big Tech Censors With New Bill That Would Strip Them of Legal Immunity

Act like a publisher, get treated like a publisher.

Silicon Valley giants who have abused their power to censor conservative opinions could be in for a rude awakening if Sen. Josh Hawley’s new bill is successful.

The legislation would strip the likes of Twitter and Facebook of legal immunity from what is posted on their websites, changing a key part of the Communications Decency Act.

Under Section 230 of the Act, social media companies are not liable for illegal content posted by individuals because they are treated as platforms, not publishers.

However, over the last few years a wave of censorship and algorithmic manipulation has confirmed that Facebook, Twitter and Google-owned YouTube are all behaving like platforms and should be treated as such under the law.

“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,” said Sen. Hawley, in a statement. “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.”

Critics have complained that the bill would stifle the growth of start-up companies, but it does not apply to small and medium sized firms, only Big Tech.

This is a fantastic opportunity for lawmakers to reverse what has become the biggest election meddling tool in the book – political censorship of conservatives by Silicon Valley.

United Nations Claims It’s Politically Incorrect to Say “Husband” or “Wife”

Urges people to stop saying “boyfriend” & “girlfriend” in order to “create a more equal world.”

The United Nations has put out a tweet asserting that people shouldn’t use politically incorrect terms like “boyfriend,” “girlfriend,” “husband” and “wife” in order to “help create a more equal world.”

“What you say matters. Help create a more equal world by using gender-neutral language if you’re unsure about someone’s gender or are referring to a group,” states the tweet.

It then lists a number of terms alongside their politically correct alternative.

These include mankind, chairman, congressman, policeman, landlord, boyfriend/girlfriend, manpower, maiden name, fireman and husband/wife.

A faceless globalist bureaucracy telling people what sounds are allowed to come out of their mouths surprisingly didn’t go down too well.

“Stop trying to control people’s language. It’s creepy and unnecessary,” said Lucy Harris.

“Are we allowed to say son or daughter or will my spouse and I get a visit from a police officer?” asked another.

“Are we still allowed to say manhole cover?” joked another.

“I Have Power!”: Trans Twitch Moderator Who Identifies as a Deer Threatens to Censor Critics

“There are some people that should be afraid of me.”

Published

on

A transgender Twitch “Safety Advisory Council” member who identifies as a deer (yes, really) bragged on a live stream about having the “power” to censor critics, asserting, “some people should be afraid of me.”

Twitch is a live streaming video platform that has become notorious for its draconian levels of censorship which in many cases outstrip even YouTube.

Last week, transgender streamer “Steph” Loehr, AKA FerociouslySteph, who was born a man and apparently had his genitals removed, was announced as a new member of Twitch’s “Safety Advisory Council,” giving Loehr the power to influence Terms of Service and potentially ban individual users.

Before we get to Steph’s comments on this, let’s get to know xe a little better.

Here Loehr explains how he likes to prance around in his back yard acting like a deer while munching on grass.

In this clip, Loehr mewls like a deer while having a “deergasm” as his lover massages his head.

Here’s Loehr tweeting about what appears to be a sex change operation, remarking, “If your testicles make you depressticles, it’s time to put them to resticles.”

Here we discover that Loehr thinks many gamers are “white supremacists.”

As you can tell, Loehr is obviously a really balanced individual who would totally be expected to remain impartial and neutral when deciding what opinions are allowed to be voiced on Twitch.

YouTuber KeemStar highlighted how Loehr is now bragging about having the power to censor critics who made fun of him for identifying as a deer, commenting, “Twitch really need to put a end to this! It really is going to cause something like a Gamer Gate. I really believe this!”

In the clip, Loehr states, “I have power, they can’t take it away from me and honestly there are some people that should be afraid of me and that they are because I represent moderation and diversity and I’m gonna come for people if you’re a really shitty person – I’m gonna stand up against you period and Twitch is endorsing me to do that.”

“This is pretty much like all the authoritarians who want to control your speech, thoughts and administer punishments to you if you disagree with them,” remarked YouTuber Count Dankula. “This one, as soon as she got the power, her mask didn’t slip, she ripped it off and frisbee’d it over the horizon.”

After Loehr was appointed to Twitch’s safety council, the mainstream media immediately rushed to his defense, claiming that questioning his neutrality represented a “harassment campaign.”

As the Ralph Retort highlights, Loehr’s ascension to becoming a Twitch moderator was almost certainly helped along the way by the ADL.

“The promotion actually goes back almost two years. This isn’t something that just happened out of the blue. The ADL has been working overtime to get its hooks into gaming. Too much money and influence on the table for them to ignore!”

These are the kind of people who now have the power to control free speech online.

From a broader perspective, these are the kind of people being handed power over society.

And we wonder why we’re in such a mess.

Facebook/AP Claim Chicago Mayor Pledging Support for ‘New World Order’ is Fake News

Falsely assert video is “edited” even though it isn’t.

Published

Facebook and Associated Press ‘fact checkers’ claim it’s false that Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said she supported the “New World Order,” saying the video is “edited,” despite the fact that it’s not edited.

A 2019 interview with Lightfoot has resurfaced in which she makes the following statement;

“And you get the people who run those agencies and the deputies that are pledging allegiance to the new world order and good governance.”

Facebook slapped a “false news” label on the post, which serves to bury the content in the algorithm, ensuring it’s reach is restricted.

The Associated Press, which is used by Facebook as a fact checker, claims the story is “false” and that the video is “edited,” despite the fact that the video is not edited, it is merely a segment from a larger interview.

By using the term “edited,” the AP is suggesting the video is manipulated or doctored, which it isn’t. Since all video is clipped or shortened, you could claim that all video is “edited.”

AP claims the video is taken out of context because “Lightfoot was not planning a global coup, she was talking about ending a long-standing and unusual custom in Chicago called “aldermanic prerogative,” which gave aldermen absolute power on zoning and development decisions in their home wards.”

However, nowhere is it shown that anyone suggested Lightfoot was planning a “global coup.” This seems to be a strawman invented by the AP itself.

The term “new world order” is clearly loaded and is recognized by most people as relating to global governance and political elitism.

At best, fact checkers could claim some people are taking Lightfoot’s comments out of context, but to declare the video “edited” is clearly not true and serves as a short cut to have it censored by social media companies.
