‘Selective Outrage’: Free Speech Advocate SLAMS Dem Senators’ Censorship Hypocrisy

Two Democratic Party Senators were recently challenged by Facebook over their pro-abortion postings. A Washington Free Speech Advocate attacked them.

“Big Tech monopolists regularly censor and silence conservatives, and Democrats don’t seem to care,” Internet Accountability Project President and founder and Article III Project founder Mike Davis wrote in an email to MRC Free Speech America. “Let’s be clear: ‘content moderation’ is just liberal-speak for censorship.” 

Two Democratic Party Senators had hypocritically complained in an email to Facebook and Instagram. Sens. Sens. 

However, both senators have advocated for more online censorship in the past. Internet Accountability Project president and founder Mike Davis slammed the hypocrisy of the senators and Big Tech’s overall biased censorship in exclusive comments to MRC Free Speech America.

“It’s very troubling that Democrat politicians don’t consistently show the same concern for speech with which they disagree,” Davis wrote. “The right to free speech is only realized when all sides of an issue can speak freely and openly without fear of reprisal or censorship.”

Davis specifically called Warren out. “As a leading advocate for censoring those with whom she disagrees, Senator Warren’s selective outrage is shamelessly hypocritical but unfortunately all too predictable,” Davis wrote. Warren previously demanded that Amazon increase censorship of so-called COVID-19 “misinformation.”

Davis suggested this represents a double standard on Warren’s part. “When Senator Warren starts defending conservatives from being de-platformed, censored, downranked and silenced, then she should be taken seriously,” Davis said. “Until then, she should continue to be ignored as the lame partisan she is.”

Davis proposed a solution to the pro-censorship mode of operation of Big Tech, saying the U.S.’s “century-old antitrust laws” should be leveraged to hold tech “monopolists” accountable and break up Big Tech companies. 

Platforms like Google, Facebook, Apple and Amazon would not be able to “get away with their leftwing censorship” if they were not monopolies and had to compete for users in the free market, Davis said.
