This right here is one of many reasons why I will be voting for President Trump again in 2020:
The Trump Administration is fighting for free speech online.
— The White House (@WhiteHouse) May 15, 2019
By far the most important political issue of our era is platform access. This is where debate happens. It’s where commerce happens. It’s where news breaks. It’s where politicians address constituents. It’s where you kid’s soccer coach makes announcements. It’s where you connect with family and friends. It’s the public square, and it belongs to everyone. No one actually takes seriously the “muh free market” or “muh private company” patrol anymore. No human being has the right to monopolize the public square. Platform access is a civil right, and it looks like the President, thanks largely to his son and the people he’s surrounded himself by, understand that.
I completed the survey and so should you if you’ve ever been censored unfairly on social media. It only takes a couple of minutes to complete. Trump is the first social media President in American history. He gets it in ways that other people don’t. I’m not sure if this will actually lead to some action on his part, but there’s a reason the White House launched this today. At the very least the people who work for him have been watching this issue and understand that the social media companies are trying to program us. They’re trying to decide what is and isn’t acceptable speech. There have no competitors and there are no alternatives. Waiting for the free market to create a new one is naive, childish, and stupid at this point. People who suggest that a better alternative will come along should be mocked and not taken seriously. Twitter and Facebook are in bed with the media and have become monopolies. They’re not going anywhere, and we have a right to use them.
