POTUS Pushes for Free Speech Protections After Online Culling of Conservative Views

The fight for free speech is on, and the President knows it.

It has been plain and obvious that some of the largest traffickers of data on the internet are no fans of conservative viewpoints.

Often, these companies are driven by young people, and very bright and revolutionary young people at that.  They’re young enough to have escaped some of the darker biases of the past, but they are perhaps too young to have the direct link to the knowledge necessary to prevent such atrocities from occurring again.

What these kids were taught in school about World War II was likely much different than what my generation was taught.  I vividly remember being made to memorize a timeline of events leading up to the conflict, as if to tell us “if, God forbid, you see these patterns again later in life, you need to remember what they led to”.

Censorship of opposing political viewpoints was part and parcel to the Nazi rise to power in the late 1930’s, and some of today’s tech giants are heading down that path once again.

President Trump took to Twitter on Friday evening and slammed social media censorship in reaction to Facebook’s recent crackdown of conspiracy theorists, a prominent anti-Semite, and other far-right figures, saying that he’s “monitoring and watching closely.”

On Thursday, Facebook permanently banned Nation of Islam founder Louis Farrakhan, InfoWars host Alex Jones, and rightwing provocateurs Milo Yiannopoulos, Laura Loomer, while Paul Joseph Watson. InfoWars’ page was also taken down.

“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology. The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today,” Facebook said in a statement to Fox News.

The President was none too fond of the move.

The President is right, and here’s why:

You, dear reader, likely have a fondness for a certain kind of music.  Let’s say it’s Classic Rock.  You run the gamut from Skynyrd to Zeppelin to Bad Company all in the span of an hour, without so much as missing a beat.

But, as a rock and roll sort of person, you’ve never been all that into Classical music.  Does that make you want to go out and destroy all the classical records and ban people from playing the Harpsichord?

No, it doesn’t, because we understand that other people like other things….and that’s okay.  Diversity of thought is one of the most critically important characteristics of our country, and we should be defending our opponents’ right to say what they believe, even if we don’t agree with it.

Multiple Republican Governors Just Ended Their State’s Mask Mandate (Details)

‘Bout time!!

Elderly people are supposed to be more effected by COVID-19 than younger folks. Yet in Florida, with its large population of Boomers, the “death rate” isn’t all that different from New York, even though one state has taken a hardline approach and the other much more relaxed. Goes to show that “social distancing” and wearing a mask were never really the answer to the China virus. From Fox News: Texas’s Republican Gov. Greg Abbott on Tuesday said he planned to open the state next week “100%,” roughly a year after the coronavirus pandemic broke out throughout the U.S. Abbott issued an executive order that rescinds many of the state’s previous orders, allowing all businesses in the state to fully reopen and revoking the statewide mask mandate as of next Wednesday. And in Mississippi… https://twitter.com/tatereeves/status/1366849019935412228?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1366849019935412228%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-mississippi-also-stopping-mask-mandate-and-reopening-all-businesses-without-restriction%2F Speaking of New York, why is Andrew Cuomo still in office? From Fox News: A third woman has accused New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of unwanted advances. According to The New York Times, 33-year-old Anna Ruch has claimed that Cuomo asked to kiss her at a wedding in 2019. In an interview Monday, she specified that Cuomo put his hand on her bare lower back.

Behar: Dems Should ‘Ignore’ Allegations Against Cuomo Like GOP Did With Kavanaugh

Protect Cuomo at all costs!

Behar is a proud American who loves her country. Okay, enough with the jokes. Joy is absolutely, without question, an anti-American nut who wants to see the United States fail. She has pretty much made this clear for a long while now. One of President Trump’s fiercest celebrity critics, Behar was at it again on Tuesday morning. The talk show co-host just couldn’t help herself. Ain’t she just lovely? From Breitbart: Joy Behar told her co-hosts on Tuesday on ABC’s “The View” that Democrats should “ignore everything” regarding the allegations of sexual harassment against Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) using what she claimed is the “Republican model.” In a clip from Fox News, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said, “Here’s what I would tell my Democratic colleagues to do, follow the Republican model. We had a Republican nominee for the Supreme Court be accused of something the day before we voted, the moment before we voted. We could have gone ahead and said this. It’s too late. You sat on it. It’s not fair. We stopped the entire damn process.” Behar barked, “Well, yes, I do agree with them they should use the Republican model, which is to basically ignore everything like they did with Kavanaugh, they had no witnesses, they had a three-day investigation. Rob Porter — remember him, physically abused two of his wives. I remember Trump said, ‘I wish him well.’ Didn’t they back up Roy Moore for a long time?”
