Information War – Why Repealing Section 230 Was Necessary

By Faye Higbee

You have been pawns in the Big Tech information war. Why was repealing Section 230 so important? Because of what BIG Tech has done in the last couple of days: Facebook, Instagram, Twitch, Twitter, Shopify, YouTube all suspended Donald J Trump. (Twitter suspended him for 12 hours during the melee at the Capitol, Facebook decided to do it “indefinitely”). Facebook has removed every Trump video they can find, including the one in which he calls for peace. If they can do it to the President of the United States, they can and will do it to you. NOW do you understand why Trump was so insistent about getting that through?

Even Edward Snowden, who is not a Trump fan, saw the problem that could happen in the future:

Pawns in the Information War

“Rumor” has it that Democrats are seeking to remove OANN, Newsmax, and America’s Voice from cable networks and streaming services. With the Communist Trump -haters in control, you are about to experience what it’s like to live in a dictatorship. The first rule of war is to take out the communications ability of the other side. They knew they couldn’t mount a frontal assault with guns, so they used an ‘information war.’

The leftists have an advantage: big money, big tech. Zuckerberg spent literally millions for election officials. Fulton County accepted $6.3 million from Mark Zuckerbeerg. Georgia’s Fulton County was one of the most fraud-ridden counties in the swing states. Zuckerberg and his wife “donated” nearly $400 million to “train election workers,” pay them, other things for the elections. (The Federalist)

Suing a company like Facebook or even Mark Zuckerberg is an exercise in futility…all because of Section 230. You can read the entire section at this link – keeping in mind the actions of these Big Tech companies that claim to be just “platforms” rather than publishers. They can’t be sued under Section 230 if they are an internet platform.

Part of the section states the following

(1) to promote the continued development of the Internet and other interactive computer services and other interactive media;
(2) to preserve the vibrant and competitive free market that presently exists for the Internet and other interactive computer services, unfettered by Federal or State regulation;
(3) to encourage the development of technologies which maximize user control over what information is received by individuals,
families, and schools who use the Internet and other interactive computer services;

Have any of these leftists companies done ANYTHING but destroy the free market and pull the plug on user control by censoring everything put out by Conservative companies? We at Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children lost everything when we were deplatformed by Zuckerberg both on Facebook and Instagram, and we were sincerely not the only ones. Many Conservatives just like us were taken down, including the large Tea Party Group. Now they’ve attacked the President of the United States that 75 million of us voted for.

The information war has only just begun. The left is threatening even more actions now. We must rise to the challenge and find ways to thwart their efforts.

Our task is not an easy one, but neither was the task of our Founding Fathers. We must fight to defend free speech on the internet now more than ever. Our country, and indeed the world, depends on it. Our children are counting on us to rise to the occasion and defend freedom just as so many have done before us.
