TX social media censorship bill

TX social media censorship bill
Wow, so it is now freedom to force someone to hold your hate speech.

Quote:Texas Governor Greg Abbott signs social media "censorship" bill into law

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has signed a bill that aims to stop social media companies from banning users or nixing posts based solely on political opinions — the latest salvo by Republicans, who claim that these tech giants are censoring conservative users.

"We will always defend the freedom of speech in Texas, which is why I am proud to sign House Bill 20 into law to protect first amendment rights in the Lone Star State," Abbott said in a statement.

So if you have a bakery you have the freedom to object to what is written on your cakes, but if you have a website you are forced to have whatever people write on it.
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

I don’t care how much it takes. I’ll pay for it.

So, we can add ‘freedom of speech’ to the long list of things Abbott doesn’t understand. It guarantees your right to say stupid things, it doesn’t guarantee you a platform on which to say them.

The big 3 should announce that it's now to financially risky to continue doing business in the state and all accounts will begin to be deleted in 60 days. That's enough time for all parties to go back to email and websites.

Texas has become a communist state for not letting business do whatever it wants is Republicans would be chanting if a Democrat governor had done this to any other business.
