The White House on Wednesday endorsed further regulations on social media tech platforms, in response to testimony from far-left Facebook “whistleblower” Frances Haugen on Capitol Hill.
“The President has long said, as you referenced, that tech platforms must be held accountable for the harms that they cause,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said during the daily press briefing in response to a question about the hearings on Capitol Hill.
Here’s the beginning of the end of social media, especially Facebook, as we have known it. If you think it has been bad for conservatives and libertarians up to now, just wait. The White House, through its threats, makes it easier for Facebook to be the totalitarian monolithic entity its owners so want it to be. The Biden regime will threaten to use force against Facebook until it bans ALL nonleftist speech, across the board. Further, the Biden regime will reward Facebook for turning over dissidents so the government may harass and ultimately jail them under one-sided and subjectively defined “anti-domestic terrorism” policies. Will Facebook buckle under? Of course. This leftist, one party totalitarian dictatorship is what they always wanted.
