Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has had enough of Big Tech censorship, and he is not afraid to say so.
“There’s two threats to conservatism: mass mail-in voting unverified and social media companies unregulated, unable to be sued when they take down the content of conservatives,” he said Graham in an interview with Sean Hannity.
“Social media companies and mail-in voting will destroy conservatism if we don’t push back,” he continued.
“Section 230 allows media — the Big Tech companies to take down content and make decisions without being sued, and they’re not regulated. There’s no business that I know of in America, Sean, that can’t be sued for their actions and not subject to regulation by the government at any level except Big Tech,” said Graham.
“And you and the New York Post and Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham can sue these bastards when they try to censor content,” Graham explained, referring to Facebook and Twitter censorship of a New York Post article that detailed purported emails from former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter and reportedly exposed the alleged scandalous dealings of both father and son in the Russia-bordering state of Ukraine.
Graham introduced a new bill which he said states that Section 230 must be “reformed or eliminated” unless Congress can pass some type of reform legislation.
Graham’s bill would “repeal Section 230 on January 1, 2023, unless Congress acts sooner,” he said in a statement. “Congress will have two years to find an acceptable alternative or allow the legal liability protections to go away,” concluded Graham. “I’m hopeful that there will be bipartisan support for this approach.” Section 230 allows internet platforms to avoid legal liability, including civil tort law.
