Read draft EO, calls out social media for working with CCP

3
265

The executive order calls out social media for working with the Chinese Communist Party and its military. That’s a surprise.

It addresses Section 230 and calls large social media platforms “the functional equivalent of a traditional public forum” and states these firms “should not infringe on protected speech”.

It also establishes watchlists for the Attorney General. That could be foreboding.

The White House reveals in the EO that they received “over 16,000 complaints of online platforms censoring or otherwise taking action against users based on their political viewpoints”. The complaints system has been online since May 2019.

This is a draft and not the finished EO.

I think this is a rare step forward for free speech.

But we all should know by now that the cowardly, corrupt AG is an embarrassment. Barr has no interest in protecting the USA from a coup, nationwide liberty violations, or the CCP. He only sticks his neck out to protect himself and his precious corrupt DC.

Trump knows Barr is useless, that is why he enlisted Grenell to embarrass the disgrace. I imagine that Trump insiders get a good laugh at Trump taunting him with this watchlist. Barr ignores that watchlist just as fast as he ignored Trump’s order for him to possess and process information related to the coup.

All of these platforms need to be placed under receivership pursuant to the War Powers Act and Rick Grenell named as the Trustee.
