White House press secretary Jen Psaki not only revealed that the Administration is colluding with Facebook to ban people who spread what they decide is “misinformation,” but she doubled down by claiming that if you’re banned from one social media platform, you should be banned from all of them. Note to college students who like to call everyone they dislike a “fascist”: this is actual fascism.
Unfortunately for this plan, unless Biden is able to impose actual fascism, he can’t prevent private companies from doing whatever they want, like welcoming all the customers that dumb social media platforms turn away because they care more about promoting leftist political agendas than serving customers and making money. I doubt that Parler, Rumble, MeWe, and all the other alternative outlets that are popping up like weeds to challenge the Big Tech monopolies will be quite so willing to turn away millions of customers because Joe Biden doesn’t like what they’re saying.
Along those lines, GETTR, a new social media platform co-created by former Trump spokesman Jason Miller, has added 1.5 million users in record time before most Republicans have even heard of it.
Ironically, if you could be banned from the media for dispensing misinformation, Jen Psaki would be out of a job.
