The Most Diabolical Legislation Ever Created… Here’s What it Means for Free Speech

Posted by M. C. on May 19, 2023

It may seem completely off the wall, and frankly, if I’d even thought, much less written about this even just four years ago, I’d have called the men in white coats to come check if, you know, everything is OK.

Restrict Act

A few issues back we highlighted the newly — and dare I say, appropriately named and promoted— “Restrict Act.” With the evil TikTok as the scapegoat providing cover for what amounts to easily THE most diabolical legislature I’ve ever seen proposed, freedom of speech will be no more — irrespective of platform.

Some questions to ponder: Is TikTok a tool of the CCP? And furthermore, if the CCP could get its hands on the data from TikTok and any other large user platform, would it? And also, would ANY government, yours included — wherever that may be — wish to have access to the data from ANY social media platform and if it could obtain it, would it?

The painfully obvious answers to these questions reveal the absurdity of singling TikTok out as a problem while pretending to be “protecting citizens” for “national security.” It is a red herring and a step towards censoring and hence controlling EVERY social media platform.

What else? We are to believe that “highly classified information” was leaked about the war in Ukraine. We are also led to believe that a low ranking 21-year-old (who would absolutely NOT have access to highly classified information) somehow had it and then put it on Discord?

Now, if you believe that, then I’ve got a bridge to sell you.

Be seeing you
