California Dem Admits “I’d Love To Regulate The Content Of Speech”

from ZeroHedge:

A day after grabbing headlines with his grandstanding during Google CEO Sundar Pichai’s testimony at a House Judiciary Committee hearing, Rep Ted Lieu ( U.S. Representative for California’s 33rd congressional district since 2015) went on CNN for victory tour and exposed the reality of the Democratic Party’s deep desire to ‘amend’ the First Amendment.

During yesterday’s hearing Lieu quoted Google searches of Republican congressmen Steve Scalise of Louisiana and Steve King of Iowa in an attempt to ‘prove’ that conservative complaints that Google is biased against conservatives are false…

Truth and Free Speech Are Being Taken Away From Us

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

This is my quarterly request for your support.

Many supporters are now monthly donors. This call is a reminder to those who respond to the quarterly requests and to the many who are yet to respond. In keeping with a decision made by the regular donors, those of limited means are exempt from the request.

Free speech and the ability to speak truth are being shut down. It is happening with the complicity of the print and TV media, the liberal/progressive/left, the US Department of Justice (sic), the law schools and bar associations, Congress, and the federal judiciary.

0

from InfoWars:

Tucker Carlson delivered a stunning monologue Wednesday, slamming CNN for posing as a champion of free speech, after the network spent months trying to have competitors silenced and banned.

Carlson addressed CNN’s lawsuit against the Trump administration for revoking Jim Acosta’s White House access.

“In the past couple of days, you’ve heard a lot of pumping and puffing about free speech and freedom of the press, and how those freedoms are currently imperiled by the White House, and to be clear, we are for free speech. Unfettered, absolute free speech.” Carlson urged.

Free Speech Is About The Search For Truth, Not A Benevolence To Others

by Brenden Labrum, Activist Post:

You don’t have to look far to find clear manifestations of the current degradation of our basic natural right previously known as free speech—now hate speech (you can start herehereherehere, and here). There’s a cultural shift taking place towards the social control of thought and reasoning under the guise of love and compassion. Ironically, and quite pathetically, the so-called resistance to “hate speech” in the name of “tolerance” has become nothing more than a license to hate.

This behavior and philosophy appears to find refuge in the media and now within political platforms. It has become the norm on some college campuses to facilitate and foster such a dangerous and toxic culture.

They Want To Kill FREE SPEECH [But We Won’t Let Them]

from SGTreport:

Facebook is targeting what they deem “fake news” with third party verification, while in the EU the fascist oligarchy in the European Parliament has passed the Copyright Directive with Articles 11 and 13 which are targeted directly at free speech, which fortunately is protected in the United States by the Constitution, and on line by the Fair Use clause. But it’s clear that the NWO would like to kill the internet and cleanse it of free speech because they are losing badly in the public square of ideas. Bill Ottman the CEO of Minds.com joins me to discuss.

by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

It’s amazing how the same people demanding we “bake the cake” transition into free-market libertarians when their own corporate power is on the line.

From NewsBusters:

Google does not seem to want to change for the sake of its users.

According to an October 31 Bloomberg article, Google filed a statement with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in response to a lawsuit challenge by conservative outlet PragerU. In the filing, Google argued that government regulation would have “disastrous practical consequences.”

The Conspiracy Theorist – What Happened to James Tracy Could Happen to YOU

from Memory Hole Blog:

Independent Media Solidarity proudly presents the first preview of our new feature-length film, The Conspiracy Theorist: What Happened to James Tracy Could Happen to You. From the makers of We Need to Talk About Sandy Hook, this forthcoming documentary goes behind the scenes of the most important First Amendment legal battle of our time: Professor James Tracy’s firing for his controversial online speech.

In 2015 Florida Atlantic University abruptly terminated Professor Tracy under a false pretext. When Tracy filed a federal civil rights lawsuit his attorneys discovered how university officials repeatedly schemed to defeat Tracy’s First Amendment rights without violating the US Constitution.

Yale Prof: Free Speech Needs To Go Because Of Fascism And Putin

by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

The Boston Review shared a short excerpt from the new book “How Fascism Works” by Yale professor Jason Stanley last week which argued that free speech needs to be scrapped because of “fascists” and “RT.”

From Boston Review:

What are the limits of freedom of speech? It is a pressing question at a moment when conspiracy theories help to fuel fascist politics around the world. Shouldn’t liberal democracy promote a full airing of all possibilities, even false and bizarre ones, because the truth will eventually prevail?

The Big 4 Tech Companies Vs Humanity – Public Utility, Boycott or Legislation

by Rory, The Daily Coin:

If you still believe in America. If you still believe we have the right to speak our mind; if you still believe in our God given rights, please sign this petition –Sign the White House petition at this link We have to start somewhere and this seems like as good a start pointing as any.

Since mid 2016 the big 4 tech companies – Google, Facebook, Twitter and, the biggest social media platform in the known universe, YouTube, have engaged in secretive / open policies of censorship. It began with Amazon owned, Washington Post running an article announcing Prop-Or-Not in which some unknown shadowy people had decided there were 200 different websites that were engaged in spreading Russian propaganda. Nothing could have been further from the truth and this experiment actually unleashed unintended consequences that took more than a year for these tech giants to reign in. Each of the 200 websites traffic exploded to the upside, in some cases doubling there traffic from the previous month.
