Petition to President Trump to Protect Free Speech on Internet

Rate this post

The social media tech giants — Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, Disqus — are all owned and operated by liberals/Democrats/Progressive, i.e., the Left. Although they are separate corporations, their similar political partisanship and ideology make them a virtual monopoly. When they each act to censor and stifle the American people’s freedom of speech in social and alternative media, their collective reach approaches totalitarian in scope.

See “U.S. tech giants are waging a war against free speech

There is a petition on WhiteHouse.gov to President Trump, that he requests Congress to pass a law prohibiting the social-media tech giants from banning and censoring our speech on the Internet.

Below is the petition:

Protect Free Speech in the Digital Public Square

Created by W.C. on August 28, 2018

The internet is the modern public square. It is where political campaigns are fought and won, where journalism is created and distributed, and where grassroots movements are born. Yet, the free and open internet has become a controlled, censored space, monopolized by a few unaccountable corporations.

By banning users from their platforms, those corporations can effectively remove politically unwelcome Americans from the public square. That is repugnant to our shared values of free speech and freedom of the press.

The President should request that Congress pass legislation prohibiting social media platforms from banning users for First Amendment-protected speech. The power to block lawful content should be in the hands of individual users – not Mark Zuckerberg or Jack Dorsey.

The petition needs 100,000 signatures by September 27, 2018 to get a response from the White House.

Begun today, the petition thus far has 3,060 signatures.

Go here to sign! — and spread the word.

  6. I also signed the petition. But I did so cautiously, as it is a slippery slope to try to walk on. While I hate the way that social media is treating conservatives, at the same time, I hate the idea of a Big Brother government telling a private company how to run their business. Unlike the airwaves, which are public property, the internet is delivered over a network built by private enterprise. So censorship of the social media groups by their owners is, in some ways, their right.
    The issue for me that made me sign the petition, is that, like it or not, these huge companies have insinuated themselves so firmly into the fabric of society, that they also simply must be held to a different standard than a company like a mom and pop grocery store.
    While we regulate industries such as the oil and natural gas suppliers, because they are vital to the interests of this nation, social media has become so much a part of modern life, that they are, to a degree, part of our national interests, as well. While many of us, maybe even most of us, like the IDEA of unplugging from the whole social media system, the reality is that for most of us, even myself, a retired, 58 year old man, would find it becoming increasingly hard to function without the ability to interact with other people via the internet.
    Just today, in my capacity of my parents executor of their estate, I sent a text message to one of the people who had bought one of two homes from the estate, and was back and forth twice on email with my lawyer, for the same thing. And while this could have been done via telephone, or snail mail, the truth is that those forms of communication would not have been as convenient for me and not have given me a written record of my having been in contact with the buyer of the property, in this case my niece. I was just informing her about transferring the deed over to her and her husband, since they had finished paying off a land contract. But you can see the utility of having a record of my doing that. And how an unscrupulous company can bring their own political bias to bear on the nation, if we don’t figure this out, and soon. The horse has left the barn, but we still must try and make sure that we don’t let the likes of FaceB, or Twitter, or Google, etc, to kill the horse, or make the horse only work for one part of society, that of the liberal type.

     
  7. Honestly, I think it’s past time for conservatives to stop bitching and moaning about sites that we all know have been run by commie-libs for years and crank up their own sites.

     
    • In theory I’m totally in agreement. On the other hand, “regulation” is not what its being sold as in this case. These companies who have almost, if not not all, exclusive control are engaging in a conspiracy to restrain trade. They are in violation of anti-trust laws.

      There was a time, before Clinton, where they would have been regulated by the FCC for violations of the “Fairness Doctrine”. Basically, when one uses media to promulgate opinions they are obligated to provide equal time for opposing views. Clinton rescinded this. It could just as easily be reinstated and Trump should do it immediately. He should have done it upon taking office and we wouldn’t be listening to these losers on TV and elsewhere.

       
    • You mean “cranking up their own sites” like FOTM (and countless others) that WordPress took down without warning and without just cause?

       
  8. You were warned

    The Satanic lie of “hate speech” is nothing except the agenda of the Antichrist himself and all the totalitarian atheists aka marxists who serve him.

    The TRUTH is that

    ALL SPEECH is hate speech.
    The only difference is what and who you hate.

    ALL SPEECH is love speech
    The only difference is what and who you love

    The very words YES and NO communicate
    hate or love towards something or someone.

    The totalitarian Antichrist atheists simply
    have doubled down on their agenda of
    word redefinition through enlisting the power of
    the media and the atheists who control
    the court system to create this fake
    concept of “hate speech” in order to
    control what is spoken and ultimately
    is known to exist.

    It is ALL a satanic lie simply meant to criminalize
    Christianity at its root and everything
    that branches from it, namely conservatism
    or any belief system which does not bow
    to the lies of Darwin, Marx, Lenin, etc.

    The end of the world is here, and only
    through war literally can you save yourself
    and your loved ones from being the victims
    of the Antichrists who now control the world
    and who are beginning to implement their
    globalist oppression and imprisonment
    agenda.

     
  9. Signed and sent.

     
  10. Sign, sealed, DELIVERED, as long as I’m able to, no one will silence me.
