From Sen. Warner: Potential Policy Proposals for Regulation of Social Media and Technology Firms
The 23 page long white paper is based on the premise of the devastating impact of Russia on the 2016 election (gotta keep the lie/story/narrative) going is well summarized here at Reason.
Allow me to mention a point of his paper/reasoning: “Make platforms liable for state-law torts (defamation, false light, public disclosure of private facts) for failure to take down deep fake or other manipulated audio/video content.” May I ask, who determines fake? Well of course the “truth researchers” hired by the organization either out rightly or contracted. What will they use the left version of the bible of course, Snopes and the Southern Poverty Law Center of course. It is already occurring. The truth is deemed fake and the fake/lie is deemed truth. The organizations who are trying to share the truth are given “strikes”, “time out” and eventually de-platformed which is the IT/internet version of capital punishment.
The link I created above to the Southern Poverty Law Center will take you to the “hate map”. Do yourself and our country a favor and look over the list of organizations identified as hate groups. You will probably be surprised. (if you know how to import data, use the excel/csv export for a much faster way to scan the 950+ on the list). Let me mention a few,
Here is “anti-immigrant” which btw uses false-labeling (see below):
The left is aggressively doing all that they can, legal and illegal, constitutional and unconstitutional to prevent TRUTH being accessible to anyone who is looking or stumbles across it. Truth of course in reference to the LIES of not only the DNC but that of the radicalized liberal propaganda industrial complex, the MSM.
Michelle Malkin commented back in April 2018, “Media Matters has been at the forefront of the speech squelchers, who are highly organized, incredibly disciplined and obviously deeply funded, not only by George Soros but by a number of left-wing foundations.”
In the article Seven Techniques Liberals Use to Silence Conservatives Mr. Hawkins identified the following: “libspaining”, violence, de-platforming, PC/safe spaces/microaggressions, liberal fakes, false labeling and the ventriloquist dummy. And may I add, doxxing.
De-platforming is the most devastating, that is, if congress, VP Pence & President Trump continue to allow these unconstitutional activities to occur. The left is using a combination of de-platforming and then RADICALIZED LIBERAL ACTIVISTS in the tech industry to attack conservative organizations via server attacks & aggressive pressure put on companies who are providing crucial IT services to cease providing the services which the company is under financial and legal contract to perform.
So why the title Utilitarianism and Politics? Simply, the radicalized liberal (which is becoming a redundant expression!) seems to pursue “the ends justifies the means”. It would seem that one can lie, engage in unconstitutional activity, practice violence and other means that are not part of a healthy vibrant society in order to get their way; since they are sure that their way is the right way. Mind, if a conservative tries to engage in peaceful discussion the seven techniques go into play. For example, if one is known to be an effective communicator of conservative principles then the left must immediately engage in any activity possible so as to remove any platform/location that the conservative would be invited or allowed to use.
