The government is prohibited by the First Amendment to interfere with the right to free speech and religious freedom, but progressives (communists) in the US Congress are encouraging private sector companies such as Google, Facebook, and others to "regulate" free speech on their platforms. This revelation came in the aftermath of Google CEO Sundar Pichai's testimony before the House Judiciary Committee about whether the company's search engine was biased against conservative speech. In an interview with CNN, US Representative Ted Lieu (D-CA), a member of the House Progressive (communist) Caucus, said he wants government to regulate free speech, but absent of that, corporations should do so.
Lieu was asked by CNN host Brianna Kellar how Google and other tech companies can work to prevent the spread of conspiracy theories and other online trolling. Lieu responded: "
I would love to be able to regulate the content of speech. The First Amendment prevents me from doing so, and that's simply a function of the First Amendment, but I think over the long run, it's better the government does not regulate the content of speech." He added that corporations should do the job that government can't do-regulate content of speech. And this is the point: Leftist-led tech companies are actually doing the work these leftists in government want them to do by suppressing conservative and religious speech on their platforms. They do it under the guise of "preventing" fake news and conspiracy theories.
Progressivism, socialism, communism are all the same thing, just a different word is used depending on what is more acceptable to the audience. It is all about communism. Communism must control free speech because its very manifesto calls for abolishing all morals and all religion. Government becomes god in the communist regime. It is run by dictators who pillage entire societies and promote control through class warfare and poverty. Look at China, Cuba, Venezuela, and Argentina. There is no middle class and people are starving. This is a hallmark of communism and it starts with taking away religious freedom and freedom of speech-the tools of hope and salvation. Sadly, it is gaining a foothold in America.
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez in early December praised socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and said that she "represents the future of our party." Perez also told a Demand Justice gathering of progressives on December 5 that too many voters get their information from Fox News, the NRA and the pulpit on Sundays. He further said, "We've got to talk about other reforms to enable us to elect Democrats." He said they need a broader communications strategy. In this context, it means suppression of free speech and religious free speech-just as the liberal tech companies are doing. See where this is headed? As Christ said in Matthew 24:9 of the end times: "and you shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake." They detest God's Word. They hate your opinion. They seek to take both away.
