Petition to President Trump to Protect Free Speech on Internet

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.

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,… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »
