Biden Aide Calls For MORE Social Media And Internet Censorship

That a Joe Biden presidency would radically transform America into a very dark place is no longer debatable and his supporters are not even bothering to hide their oppressive intentions.
Not only would a Biden regime immediately push for a national forced mask mandate and another punitive round of crushing lockdowns, but they are determined to censor anyone who dares to object to their tyranny.
On Monday, Biden aide Bill Russo who is the deputy press secretary for lunchbucket Joe called for even MORE censorship from the big social media companies that have already strangled pro-Trump voices with de-platforming, bans, and disclaimers on tweets about election irregularities.
According to Russo, "Our democracy is on the line. We need answers," which is pretty rich coming from a guy who is employed by a candidate that stands to be the beneficiary of a stolen election.
But these liars always invoke "democracy" while doing everything to destroy it.
Russo went on to post a series of cherry-picked examples to smear Trump supporters as being violent extremists while at the same time, conveniently ignoring the rampant calls for violence by the left on Twitter and Facebook, both of which have a double standard when it comes to ANTIFA, Islamic radicalism and unhinged celebs whose irresponsible rhetoric to their large followings serves to incite violence.
Respected constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley called out this dangerous and fascistic fervor to silence any voices that oppose them.
According to Prof. Turley:
"...I do not know when the Democratic party became the party for censorship. However, limiting free speech is now a rallying cry for Democratic members and activists alike. At risk is the single greatest invention for free speech since the printing press."
We have been discussing the calls for top Democrats for increased private censorship on social media and the Internet. President-elect Joe Biden has himself called for such censorship, including blocking President Donald Trump’s criticism of mail-in voting. Now, shortly after the election, one of Biden’s top aides is ramping up calls for a crackdown on Facebook for allowing Facebook users to read views that he considers misleading — users who signed up to hear from these individuals. Bill Russo, a deputy communications director on Biden’s campaign press team, tweeted late Monday that Facebook “is shredding the fabric of our democracy” by allowing such views to be shared freely.
Russo tweeted that “If you thought disinformation on Facebook was a problem during our election, just wait until you see how it is shredding the fabric of our democracy in the days after.” Russo objected to the fact that, unlike Twitter, Facebook did not move against statements that he and the campaign viewed as “misleading.” He concluded. “We pleaded with Facebook for over a year to be serious about these problems. They have not. Our democracy is on the line. We need answers.”
For those of us in the free speech community, these threats are chilling. We saw incredible abuses before the election in Twitter barring access to a true story in the New York Post about Hunter Biden and his alleged global influence peddling scheme. Notably, no one in the Biden camp (including Biden himself) thought that it was a threat to our democracy to have Twitter block the story (while later admitting that it was a mistake).
I have previously objected to such regulation of speech. What is most disturbing is how liberals have embraced censorship and even declared that “China was right” on Internet controls. Many Democrats have fallen back on the false narrative that the First Amendment does not regulate private companies so this is not an attack on free speech. Free speech is a human right that is not solely based or exclusively defined by the First Amendment. Censorship by Internet companies is a “Little Brother” threat long discussed by free speech advocates. Some may willingly embrace corporate speech controls but it is still a denial of free speech.
For the last four years, authoritarian Democrats have relied on Silicon Valley oligarchs to do an end-around the First Amendment by doing the government's dirty work for it but as Russo's remarks show, a Biden presidency would put the feds fully in charge of snuffing out free speech.
