CA dem congressman Ted Lieu was asked about the House Judiciary Committee hearing with Google’s CEO over the content of speech stating clearly he “would love to be able to regulate the content of speech. The First Amendment prevents me from doing so, and that’s simply a function of the First Amendment, but I think over the long run, it’s better the government does not regulate the content of speech.” You can be sure if democrats held a super majority right now LIEu would be all in favor of regulating the content of speech regardless of his belief govt should not get involved.
Take note he never said govt staying out of it as an absolute, he has in fact left the door open. Remember democrats DO NOT LIKE the Constitution, if they could take a match to it today they would! obama spelled it out, that it is a “charter of negative liberties” restricting the govt from doing things to the people. Democrats use every loophole they can come up with to undermine and usurp the powers of the Constitution, look at all the laws they pass violating the Second Amendment. It has its own Do Not Touch clause but that doesn’t stop them. They get away with it because half the country supports them. If the opportunity ever presented itself for dems to violate 1A as 2A they’ll do it with LIEu authoring the regs and laws!
Democrats do not like people speaking out against them. Google, Twitter and Facebook, as the dominant most widely used social media platforms, censoring conservatives is a shining example of that. Big Tech as of now is doing the dirty work for people like LIEu in govt, who dare not move to infringe on the First Amendment; he more or less admits this in his statement!
Are we learning yet how elections have consequences?
