Ebrius Disputatio

1A

It seems as if I was just blinded by the neocons I used to love this guy and this site now I see that I've outgrown them. I do love when the MRC and NewsBusters go after the mockingbird media but this TickTok ban is going to backfire. If I'm not mistaken Brett was all for the creation of the Department of Homeland Security and we can all see now what a foolish idea that was.

Why TicTok now, all of a sudden? What happens when it's our federated communications platform that congress, the neocons and the latest tyrants, which to ban, what then? This is a first amendment issue and last time I checked congress has no business making any law restricting the first amendment. The children of communist from China or elsewhere are afforded the first amendment as long as they're on US soil, right? So why single out this one entity and deny them theirs, just because they're popular, decadent and deranged, allegedly?

It's unconstitutional to ban speech or associations, just because we may not like that speech or those associations. These people like Brett don't really care about freedom, sure they're selective with the kinds of freedoms they think should be protected but deep down they're no different from the people who would ban Trump from Twitter or refuse to broadcast his rallies.

MRC President Brent Bozell pulled no punches in addressing where his organization stands regarding the recently introduced TikTok ban. Bozell is wrong on this he wants to ban TikTok because he doesn't like the platform and that's all about his feelings being hurt. That's not constitutional. In fact that's the very definition of being unconstitutional. Do any of you agree with him?

What happens when congress, the democrats, the deep state or the republicans deem your website a national security threat? What happens when they do that to MRC, Newsbusters? What happens when they do the same thing to Elon Musk's Twitter, Rumble, Odysee or your federated content management platform? They'll steamroll us if we give them the tools to do it. Leave TikTok alone, it is a Trojan horse to eventually allow the government to take down any website they hate.
