US Senator Says There Should be "Consequences" for People Like Alex Jones
The chilling story below is why people who don't like Alex Jones are quick to point out the story surrounding him is bigger than Alex Jones (see Video: Bill Maher Defends Free Speech and Alex Jones and Donald Trump on ‘Dangerous” Social Media Censorship: It Could Happen to You Next). Jones was just the excuse leftists were looking for. Now we have Democrat Senator Ron Wyden demanding consequences for platforms that don’t remove people like Alex Jones. Let that sink in.
"I think what the Alex Jones case shows, we’re gonna really be looking at what the consequences are for just leaving common decency in the dust...what I’m gonna be trying to do in my legislation is to really lay out what the consequences are when somebody who is a bad actor, somebody who really doesn’t meet the decency principles that reflect our values, if that bad actor blows by the bounds of common decency, I think you gotta have a way to make sure that stuff is taken down."
Call me crazy, but elected officials in Washington D.C. are the last people I want deciding what "common decency" is. They rank behind people who work in porn, people who try to scare the elderly into giving money to the IRS, and lazy people who can't put the shopping carts back where they belong. Yes, I see you Mister and Missus shoving the cart up on a parking lot island. You lazy pieces of crap.
And any leftists who think this "common decency adherence" is a power the government should have, did you notice who occupies the Oval Office? Do you really want Trumpity Trump Trump to tell you, Common Joe Citizen, your online behavior is indecent and screw you? Think before you shitpost, little one. We might find your online behavior "unbecoming" and send you to the comment gestapo.
Go ahead. Type stupid crap like "this literally blew my mind." Go ahead and all caps an entire paragraph. Use three exclamation points. I dare you.
InfoWars was just the first shot. Hold on to your butts and prepare for impact.
Tell me again about how much the left loves the First Amendment. I'm all eyes and ears.
