Trump: Big Tech Immunities Must End NOW for ‘National Security’ Reasons

President Trump says Big Tech immunities must end immediately for national security reasons

President Trump has called for the immediate end of Big Tech’s Section 230 liability protections, citing reasons of “national security.”

POTUS posted to Twitter on Thursday night his call for the “immediate” termination of Section 230 of the Communications and Decency Act, warning that the liability protections granted to social media companies like Facebook, Google and Twitter should be stripped for “purposes of national security.”

Nationalfile.com reports: Currently, Big Tech companies claim they act as a neutral platform, meaning that they receive certain protections from what people post on their site under Section 230, which gives them a “liability shield.” However, given that they have engaged in the censorship of conservatives, they act more like a publisher, who is more liable for what is on their site.

The announcement followed a tweet from President Trump that attacked Twitter for “sending out totally false ‘Trends’ that have absolutely nothing to do with what is really trending in the world.” He argued that the trends are simply made up, and they are only “negative” ones. “Same thing will happen to Twitter as is happening to Fox News daytime. Also, big Conservative discrimination!” the President concluded.

This is not the first time that the President has called for the end of Section 230. Last month, after Facebook and Twitter removed a story from the New York post about emails between Joe Biden and his son Hunter, he also called for the repeal of Section 230. However, this is the first time that the call has been made to do it “immediately,” and also the first time “national security” has been posited as a reason for doing so.

The President’s actions may have had something to do with the behaviour of Big Tech over the course of this election. Throughout the election, a large quantity of the President’s tweets and other social media postings, along with those of many of his supporters, have been labelled as misinformation, with Tucker Carlson even arguing that Big Tech rigged the election in favour of Joe Biden “in plain sight.”

Only this week, the personal Twitter account of Pennsylvania state Senator Doug Mastriano was banned, after the Senator had organised a hearing in his state’s legislature about the vast irregularities that took place in this month’s presidential election.

In May this year, the President signed an executive order that would strip the liability shield away from Big Tech companies if they engaged in “censoring or any political conduct.” As National File reported:

The executive order also instructs Attorney General William Barr to work with the states to develop their own legislation regarding censorship online, and also instructs his adminstration to start developing policies to “ensure taxpayer dollars are not going to any social media that suppresses free speech. The President noted that Big Tech companies have had “unchecked power to censor, restrict, edit, shape, hide, alter, virtually any communication between private citizens and large public audiences.”

  1. Would love to see a million libel lawsuits jammed down Dorsey’s and Zuckerberg’s throat.

    Democrat-Neocon terrorist threats and organized criminal behaviors are also allowed on Twatter and Fakebook.

    It will take criminal prosecutions to stop the Democrat-Neocon criminal behaviors permitted on social media.

    • The Supremes gave person-hood and citizenship to Corporations only so they could buy elections and defy the will of average Americans and pervert public opinion. NOT to assign them any liability for those actions. I doubt they will roll any of that back.

  2. Good to see battle lines drawn.
