Social media giant Facebook has become a tool for leftist to spread their doctrines while silencing conservative voices. Now one state is fighting back against the infringement of freedom.
The Texas Senate has proposed Senate Bill 2373, which seeks to protect the free exchange of ideas on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.
Republican Texas State Sen. Bryan Hughes proposed the bill and demands that social media entities not restrict the free speech of users based on personal opinions.
The bill went before the Senate State Affairs Committee last week and was immediately and unanimously approved.
“Senate Bill 2373 tries to prevent those companies that control these new public spaces, this new public square, from picking winners and losers based on content. Basically, if the company represents, ‘We’re an open forum and we don’t discriminate based on content,’ then they shouldn’t be able to discriminate based on content,” Hughes said at the hearing.
After Facebook and Instagram made permanent bans on a list of predominately conservative voices, it’s high past time something was done to protect the freedom of speech.
