House Committee Says NSF Using Taxpayer Funds To Censor Online Speech


A U.S. House Committee purportedly found that the National Science Foundation has been involved in a taxpayer-funded scheme to shape and censor online speech. If true, this would be a clear infringement of citizens’ First Amendment rights under the Constitution’s Bill of Rights.

According to

In the name of combatting alleged misinformation regarding COVID-19 and the 2020 election, NSF has been issuing multi-million-dollar grants to university and non-profit research teams. The purpose of these taxpayer-funded projects is to develop AI-powered censorship and propaganda tools that can be used by governments and Big Tech to shape public opinion by restricting certain viewpoints or promoting others.

The NSF has also allegedly been trying to hide this fact from the media to avoid political scrutiny and accountability. Should this really be the purview of the National Science Foundation?

This is worse than taxation without representation. It is taxation intended to strip us of our God-given liberties! Sadly, our tax money is used against many of us routinely now. Union dues often go to fund causes—and candidates-- many members detest. The government also finds ways to use taxpayer money to lobby for gun control. It is well more than ironic that we are effectively made to spend our own money to rob ourselves of the right to speak and assemble freely-- and defend ourselves. And, if the government can essentially repeal those rights, there is clearly no right they intend to leave intact.

Saddest of all, “We the Sheeple of the United States” don’t seem to care all that much anymore.
