June 11 Message from Rep Doug Collins about TWITTER BIAS:
Last month, Twitter demonstrated that it would continue targeting and flagging tweets by the President of the United States despite the social media platform’s obligation to uphold the Free Speech rights of all its users. Now, the platform has unveiled it’s ‘Civic Integrity Policy’ which it is using as a tool to take politically charged actions towards the President.
Our country was founded upon the free exchange of ideas and the ability of all Americans to speak freely, a principle that has allowed social media outlets like Twitter to thrive. With its new policy, Twitter is showing that it thinks it knows better than the American public and takes away their opportunity to assess the merits of the President’s views on their own. Instead, Twitter has decided to editorialize President Trump’s tweets by adding its own comments and assessments. The company has erroneously substituted their own judgment for the marketplace of ideas in a clear effort to censor conservative voices.
Left-wing bias at Twitter has reared its ugly head time and time again. For example, Twitter’s Head of Site Integrity – the employee responsible for the fact-checking policy – referred to the Trump Administration as ‘actual Nazis’ and said middle America is racist for exercising their right to vote for President Trump. On top of those unfortunate comments, another Twitter staffer deactivated the account of the President in 2017 with no legitimate reason.
I firmly believe Twitter has an obligation to protect the speech of all Americans – including with those who hold views they disagree with – which is why I introduced a resolution last week to condemn Twitter for their partisan censorship of President Trump and demand Twitter end its discriminatory practices immediately. Their illegal and unethical censorship of conservative voices has gone on for far too long, and it is past time they recognize the fact that they are not the sole arbiter of the truth.
As Congress works to foster hope and opportunity for all Americans, I remain committed to working with President Trump and his administration to protect every American’s constitutional right to free speech.
