President Donald Trump has hit out against online censorship again in a tweet this morning in which he warned that “social media giants are silencing millions of people.”
“Social Media Giants are silencing millions of people. Can’t do this even if it means we must continue to hear Fake News like CNN, whose ratings have suffered gravely. People have to figure out what is real, and what is not, without censorship!” tweeted Trump.
Trump has made repeated references to online censorship since Alex Jones and Infowars were simultaneously deplatformed by a number of Big Tech outlets earlier this month including YouTube, Facebook, Apple and Spotify. Gavin McInnes and his ‘Proud Boys’ organization were also banned by Twitter shortly after.
With the help of top media lawyers, Infowars has drawn up a series of recommendations to be sent to the Trump administration that will help protect free speech online.
Suggestions include directing the Justice Department to open investigations into whether there are First Amendment & anti-trust law violations by the major social media platforms. Trump could also set up a Presidential Commission made up of free speech experts to advise him on future action.
This is not the first time that Trump has drawn attention to social media censorship following the mass deplatforming of conservatives.
In a series of tweets last week, Trump asserted that Big Tech was “discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices” and that he wouldn’t let it happen.
Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices. Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won’t let that happen. They are closing down the opinions of many people on the RIGHT, while at the same time doing nothing to others…….
…..Censorship is a very dangerous thing & absolutely impossible to police. If you are weeding out Fake News, there is nothing so Fake as CNN & MSNBC, & yet I do not ask that their sick behavior be removed. I get used to it and watch with a grain of salt, or don’t watch at all..
….Too many voices are being destroyed, some good & some bad, and that cannot be allowed to happen. Who is making the choices, because I can already tell you that too many mistakes are being made. Let everybody participate, good & bad, and we will all just have to figure it out!
