Senator Ron Wyden Demands “Consequences” For Platforms That Don’t “Remove People Like Alex Jones”

Democratic Senator Ron Wyden is trying to take online censorship to a new level by drafting a bill that will enforce “consequences” for platforms that refuse to remove people like Alex Jones.

In an interview with Recode, Wyden, the senior U.S. Senator from Oregon, said that platforms should be punished for hosting content that he deems to go against “common decency”.

“I think what the Alex Jones case shows, we’re gonna really be looking at what the consequences are for just leaving common decency in the dust,” said Wyden.

“What I’m gonna be trying to do in my legislation is to really lay out what the consequences are when somebody who is a bad actor, somebody who really doesn’t meet the decency principles that reflect our values, if that bad actor blows by the bounds of common decency, I think you gotta have a way to make sure that stuff is taken down,” he added.

Of course, Wyden’s definition of what is ‘indecent’ is wide open to interpretation and will obviously be skewed by political bias.

    Every day Trump is in the White House, the plague and disguised enemy of the free people are revealed for who they truly are.

    Officials who previously sounded like they were protecting the Constitution, throw away that facade when their TDS and political bias (Deep State agenda) flares up.

    Censorship campaign in Congress – my oh my how the Constitution is burning in flame in front of our eyes. And not to mention the Shamed DOJ/FBI system of justice with criminals in charge protecting the corrupt legal apparatus.

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.
