Prepare yourselves for the grand revelation: Republican Tennessee Sen. Bill Hagerty has boldly introduced legislation that would force the Biden administration to do the unthinkable—disclose its audacious requests for Big Tech companies to exercise censorship over certain content. Hold on to your hats, folks!
In an exclusive scoop obtained by The Daily Caller, the bill, aptly named the Disclose Government Censorship Act, aims to expose the government’s deep, dark secrets regarding its attempts to coax Big Tech into violating the sacred First Amendment. Brace yourselves for the requirement that Executive and Legislative Branch officers and employees spill the beans within a mere seven days, publicly disclosing any communications they’ve had with technology platforms concerning actions or potential actions to limit specific speech. The nerve!
Sen. Hagerty shared his thoughts with The Caller before introducing this groundbreaking legislation, stating, “The collusion between the Biden administration and Big Tech that has come to light over the last two years is not only disturbing but inconsistent with the government’s constitutional role in American life.” Oh, how incongruous it is to witness the federal government trying to sneak around the Constitution by clandestinely conspiring with tech giants to suppress the American people’s speech. Transparency, he argues, is the key to thwarting such surreptitious censorship.
But wait, there’s more! The bill has garnered the support of several esteemed senators who have decided to jump on this sensational bandwagon. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, South Dakota Sen. Mike Rounds, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall, and Wyoming Sen. Cynthia Lummis have all cosponsored this epic legislation, joining forces to prevent any government, especially our own, from pressuring social media platforms into censoring legal speech. Talk about heroism!
Sen. Rubio chimed in with a statement that will surely go down in history: “No government should pressure social media companies into censoring their users’ legal speech. That is particularly true for our own government. This legislation will require transparency from governments, including the Biden administration when they collude with Big Tech and silence Americans in the process.” Bravo, Senator! The collusion between bureaucrats and Big Tech must be exposed!
Sen. Johnson added his voice to the chorus of dissent, boldly proclaiming, “Time and time again, the Biden administration and Big Tech have shown they cannot police themselves in protecting Americans’ First Amendment right to free speech. This bill shines a light on the collusion between bureaucrats and Big Tech.” Ladies and gentlemen, the battle against the suppression of our cherished freedom of speech rages on!
Stay tuned for more updates on this saga of government interference, Big Tech collusion, and the audacious pursuit of transparency in the face of censorship. The fight for our constitutional rights has never been so exhilarating!
