Democrats have finally gotten their wish with Big Tech censorship, so in today’s hearing Senator Ed Markey pushed even harder, accusing Big Tech of not censoring enough:
Sen. Ed Markey at tech hearing says: "The issue is not that the companies before us today is that they're taking too many posts down. The issue is that they're leaving too many dangerous posts up." https://t.co/4au67uIp3P pic.twitter.com/HWRPRn2hHA

Markey accuses Big Tech of “amplifying harmful content so that it spreads like wildfire and torches our democracy.” And for his example, he uses a post from President Trump that Facebook refused to take down. “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.” He then claims Trump went on national TV and told a hate group to ‘stand by’ and refuses to say he’ll accept the election results. What a load of garbage.
Markey then asks Zuckerberg to commit to censoring Trump if he goes on facebook and calls for violence after the election is over. Seriously, like Trump would do that. Democrat create these insane strawman conspiracy theories just so they can put pressure on Big Tech to silence conservatives even more, and they won’t be happy until Big Tech has kicked us all off their platforms.
Dan Crenshaw summed it up today:
Biggest take away from the big tech hearings:
1) Jack Dorsey is a partisan and a hypocrite.
2) There are no liberals left in the Democrat Party. Not a single Democrat Senator defended free speech or freedom of the press today.
This should terrify Americans.
