Governor De Santis isn’t just complaining about the heavy-handed political influence of Silicon Valley megacorps. He’s taking direct action against it.
Between the endless Congressional hearings, successive waves of systemic shutdowns of conservative voices, underhanded pressure tactics against legitimate businesses over political differences, it’s refreshing to see someone doing more than just talking about it.
De Santis is putting forward legislation that protects people from viewpoint censorship.
“We’ve seen the power of their censorship over individuals and organizations, including what I believe is clear viewpoint discrimination,’’ said DeSantis as the Senate president and House speaker stood at his side. “Under our proposal, if a technology company de-platforms a candidate for elected office in Florida during the election, a company will face a daily fine of $100,000 until the candidate’s access to the platform is restored again.”
The proposed bill, which is still being drafted, asks the Florida Legislature to impose penalties for social media companies whose algorithms are perceived to favor one candidate over another. It builds on SB 520, filed by state Sen. Danny Burgess, that would require the platforms to give a 30-day notice to a user whose account has been disabled or suspended and explain why the user was punished. — MiamiHerald
Isn’t it nice that Florida has a Governor with moxy?
Don’t you wish everybody did?

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
