Senator Ted Cruz joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday to call out Facebook for suppressing information that Dr. Anthony Fauci didn’t agree with.
Senator Ted Cruz: In the email dump that came out, it makes clear that this is not just being sloppy. It is systematic and it is systematically an effort to mislead the American people. And as you noted he wasn’t doing it alone but was doing it with much of the US government behind him and with Facebook and Big Tech operating as an extension of the US government in order to silence any views that disagreed, not with the science, because he wasn’t looking for the science. He was suppressing the science. But rather trying to silence anything that disagreed with the political narrative that was convenient that he was pushing at that moment…The Gateway Pundit
This is exactly right.
Facebook is colluding with the US government and the medical establishment to drive home a unified narrative on COVID.
They’re censoring people they don’t agree with, pushing what the Biden Administration wants them to, and propping up Fauci.
This calls for action.
Cruz went into some more detail, and ended with a potential solution.
…If you went out and posted the facts that led, a year ago, to the very strong likelihood that the coronavirus escaped from a Chinese government lab in Wuhan, China. If you posted that a year ago and they took it down, I think there is a very good argument you have a cause of action against Facebook. And, Facebook would ordinarily say, “We’re a private company. We’re not liable.” Well, you know, when they act at the behest of the government. When they contact Fauci. When they say, “Should we censor this and Fauci says, “Yes.” And they censor it for the federal government. And then magically when the government changes its mind and says, “Oh, all those facts that were there a year ago, now you’re allowed to talk about it.” They stop censoring it with the flip of a switch. That lays a very strong argument that Facebook is operating as a state agency and that opens very seriously legal liability.The Gateway Pundit
If Facebook was subjected to lawsuits with the remedy being Facebook getting broken up or regulated as a public utility, then that would solve the Big Tech problem.
Here’s the full segment from Bartiromo’s show.
Let’s hope that action is soon taken against Facebook in the courts.
If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that a platform used by most Americans should not be censoring them because of opinions it doesn’t like.
