Fox News: The Masters of the Universe Violate Americans’ Civil Rights

A Fox News column published on Monday questions whether or not social media companies like Facebook have too much power to regulate speech.

Ned Ryun, the CEO of American Majority, argued in a column on Monday that the recent bans of conservative figures by Facebook should spark a debate about the level of power that social media companies have to regulate speech.

Ryun points out that these companies have grown to such a size that could be classed as a “publisher” or “telecommunications company.” If they were classed under either of these two categories, Facebook would likely only be permitted to ban users if they break the law.

Ryun argues that the ability to speak on these platforms should be considered a civil right.

You have a choice whether or not you want to use Facebook. It's not a life requirement.

This is the type of manufactured "debate" that arises when you let clowns and buffoons masquerading as experts drive the conversation. FB is a private company that developed a platform for consumers to voluntarily use. If you want to start your own social media network that allows you to spew whatever language you want, you are perfectly free to do so. Plenty of software designers out there to assist you in development as long as you have the capital.

I want to take a moment to honor the sacrifice of our brave school children who lay down their lives to protect our right to bear arms.

I also have a choice if I want to use a 223 or 7mm mag.

It's TRUE. Get a group together and open a FB ACCOUNT. Post ANYTHING good about PRESIDENT TRUMP and watch how fast your account gets shut down. A friend opened 6 FB ACCOUNTS and every account is closed. All because he had a positive response to others of PRESIDENT TRUMP.
