A renewed debate about free speech has been going on the past few years. On one side some of the richest, most powerful billionaires in the world, running Silicon Valley Tech companies, joined by their 1% Wall St. friends, and a disturbing amount of people who call themselves "Liberal". On the other side average people who are Conservatives, Indepentants, or who actually are Liberals and believe in the inalienable right of Free Speech!
What seems to be an "Unspoken" promise made to Liberals is that these Billionaires, and the "activists" that they employ would only censor Conservative Pro-Trump voices saying it was "Hate Speech" "Misinformation" etc. This Opninion peice in the NYT seems to sum it up nicely:
The REAL definition of "Hate Speech": Any Speech the Censors HATE!
Basically, the promise is "Liberal" speech is used as a "Sheild" and is protected, but if its "Conservative" speech its a "Sword" and "weoponized". These are ofcourse ALL LIES. Done to get politically biased people who identify as Liberal to go along with putting Censors in control of what can be said! Once the Censors are in place they will INEVITABLY censor Everyone!
Interestingly enough the NYT uses Catherine MacKinnon as a source, a feminist who as argued that heterosexual sex is rape!
To those "Liberals" calling for censorship let me just say that being "Liberal" will NOT stop you from being Censored! Over the past 20 years Michael Moore has become one of the most successful documentary film makers there is. You may not agree with the content, but he is still very successful, and one of the most "Liberal" activists out there. He is also CENSORED!
While I haven't seen the film, obviously, aparently it was exposing that many current "Green" technologies aren't as Environmentally friendly as they adviertise! The Billioniares on Wall St. and in Silicon Valley that have invested heavily didn't want a pesky activist filmaker exposing them, so they Censored him!
Former NYT reporter Alex Berenson, had his book yanked by Amazon (90+% of the online book market) No Reason Given!

Not only that Big Tech has been Censoring Liberal groups for years, but the media is trying desperately to spin this as a Left Vs. Right issue, when it is NOT!
"But Conservatives want to Censor too." Yes some do, for instance some think we should keep the media from covering the Riots because they are "fanning the flames." While this may be true, it would become the same problem as the Left, putting Censors in charge that will eventually censor EVERYONE!
Free Speech is NOT just for those that agree with you! No Government, no Coporation, no Group, and no Individual has the right to take it from you, or anyone else!
