The Biden administration has, true to its reputation, worked on continuing the legacy of the Obama administration. With that comes a whole host of anti-freedom policies, anti-American international decisions, and of course, anti-First Amendment movements within the country’s leadership.
Unlike the last administration, President Joe Biden has worked to simmer down the backbone of America, asking the silent majority to go silent once again. They’ve done so by telling them that they’re actually outdated racist that will destroy the country, and of course, that they’ll be arrested, a la Jan. 6 protest, if they act up too strongly.
Former President Donald Trump, however, has continued his crusade to maintain freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of the press since leaving office, most recently filing a class action suit (well, a few of them actually) against the nation’s tech giants. That, in response to being banned from their platforms and having the speech of hundreds of thousands (maybe millions?) more shut down.
The fine line between an independent corporate entity restricting speech and that entity doing it under government pressure is about to get a whole lot finer when the New York icon gets done with them. however, for now, at least, the power-grid of social media information in California’s Silicon Valley is still in full force, and it’s now working with the White House to make sure that you, only know what “they” want you to know.
Bringing us information about how the Biden administration is doubling down on censorship is Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez who was answering questions from CNS News last week, when he said that Biden was working with social media giant Facebook to “suppress” information about COVID-19.
“We are in regular touch with these social media platforms, and those engagements typically happen through members of our senior staff, but also members of our COVID-19 team, given, as [Surgeon General] Dr. [Vivek] Murthy conveyed, this is a big issue of misinformation, specifically on the pandemic,” Psaki said during a media briefing earlier in the month.
