The nation has been waiting for a plan to fight the tyranny of big tech, but they don’t have to wait any longer.
Thanks to the Republican Party in Congress, there is now a “framework” for fighting the censorship of Silicon Valley.
Breitbart News reports that “House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy on Sunday night released a ‘framework’ he argued to House Republicans would help rein in Big Tech companies from engaging in censorship and silencing of conservatives.”
“In a letter sent to House Republicans on Sunday night, McCarthy announced the framework as an apparent counterweight to a series of antitrust bills which last week passed the House Judiciary Committee with largely Democrat support but also some Republicans,” reports Breitbart.
The letter stated in part:
At the same time, conservatives like Devin Nunes and Donald Trump Jr. were shadowbanned on Twitter. For pro-life groups like Live Action and others, the discrimination wasn’t subtle at all. Since then, the examples of conservative censorship and bias across internet platforms has proliferated. Each one of you are all too familiar with how Big Tech and its overwhelmingly liberal executives want to set the agenda and silence conservatives. But Big Tech doesn’t just have a free speech problem. It has an anti-competition problem too.
“The Trump Administration wisely commenced antitrust action against Google last October, but more can be done and Congressional action is warranted,” said McCarthy. “For the sake of preserving free speech and a free economy, it’s time Big Tech faces the music. House Republicans are ready to lead. This week I will join Ranking Members Jim Jordan and Cathy Rodgers to roll out a framework to stop Big Tech based on three principles.”
