White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki recently remarked that if someone is banned from one social media platform, they should be banned from all other platforms as well. That’s an, um, interesting take. The Orange Lady said, “You shouldn’t be banned from one platform and not others for providing misinformation.” Yes, and if someone is kicked out of one restaurant, especially for, say, “ordering the wrong menu items,” they should be kicked out of every restaurant. Is everyone in this administration crazy? (Don’t attempt to answer that, it was a purely rhetorical question.)
Incredibly, that was neither the dumbest nor the scariest quote she uttered during that press briefing. She also admitted that the administration is “flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation,” and added that platforms like Facebook should “measure and publicly share the impact of misinformation on their platform” while creating “robust enforcement strategies.” When government and large private entities come together to suppress information, it’s called fascism. And “robust enforcement strategies?” Such as total disregard for the First Amendment and freedom of speech? Canceling those who said something “problematic?” Prison? The death penalty?
Keep in mind, “problematic” means information progressives don’t want to get out. “Disinformation” and “misinformation” are their euphemisms for the truth.
