In yet another stunning example of the left openly floating the idea of using the government to stifle free speech on the internet, the former Democratic chair of the FEC has written a piece that essentially calls for the regulation of ALL political content on the internet while threatening the American people with lawsuits if they fail to comply.
Ann Ravel, who led the FEC under the Obama Administration and now is a lecturer at Berkeley, co-authored the piece with Abby K. Wood, a professor at the University of California, and a student at USC Gould School of Law, Irina Dykhne. The shocking proposal by the trio uses the purposefully undefined term, ‘disinformation’ as the reasoning behind what would be an unprecedented crackdown on free speech by both the government and media platforms across the web.
In the proposal, government regulators would target Americans who shared stories that were deemed ‘fake news’, even going as far as to threaten them with libels suits if they shared the ‘disputed’ content after a warning from the ‘acceptable speech overseers.
The entire proposal is a must read but some of the more shocking segments include: (take note that this is indeed a direct threat to sue Americans who share content the establishment has labeled disinformation)
