How the GOP Is Trying to Destroy Free Speech in America
Conservatives are taking the internet hostage to destroy free speech in America.
This week, the House voted to kill a bill that would have allowed online free speech, according to The Hill.
House Republicans have been trying to block this bill from moving forward since it passed the House in early April.
The bill would have required internet service providers to block content that incites violence, hate, discrimination, or acts of hate.
It was part of the so-called Cybersecurity Act, which would have imposed sanctions on the companies that provide such services.
Conservatives are attempting to pass this bill in order to make it harder for Americans to use the internet to make their own choices.
But the internet is far from a free speech zone.
The House vote to kill the Cybersecurity bill came after the House passed a version of the bill that included a provision that would allow internet service to continue providing free speech if it “contributes to the public good.”
This bill would also allow the internet service provider to impose certain restrictions on internet providers, such as limiting what content can be accessed.
This is a violation of freedom of expression.
The Republican lawmakers who sponsored this bill were members of the House Freedom Caucus, a group of Republicans who are opposed to many of the issues that led to the cyberattacks.
Conservatives want to block the bill from coming to the floor because they believe it will weaken internet freedom.
But they will lose if this bill gets to the Senate, where they have the majority.
A Republican representative, Mark Meadows, told The Hill, “If they get to the House floor, we will be in a position where they can kill the bill.”
Meadows added, “This is about the Internet, and we have the tools to defeat it.
We have the votes, and they are going to use them.”
He added, “[W]e have to protect people on the internet, and if we don’t, we’re going to lose the internet.”
This is not the first time the House has tried to kill an internet bill.
In 2015, the bill was rejected by the Senate.
Earlier this year, the Freedom Caucus tried to pass a bill on the House Floor that would’ve allowed internet providers to create a blacklist of websites and websites that incite violence, discrimination and hate.
But it was shot down in the House, because Republicans controlled the House of Representatives and the Senate Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.
There are now three other attempts at internet censorship bills that are in the works.
One of these bills would allow online service providers like Comcast to create the “Cyber Security” blacklist of the internet providers that provide their service, which is essentially a list of websites that contain content that violates the law.
Another bill would force internet service companies to block access to certain websites if it promotes violence, discriminates against members of minorities, or incites hate.
And a third bill would require internet service and content providers to disclose the locations of their servers.
All three bills would essentially make it easier for the government to ban content that might be deemed “harmful.”
The House Freedom to Protect Americans Act, introduced by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), would require online service companies and internet service vendors to create an “online cybersecurity plan” that would be available to the company or vendor to “assess the cybersecurity posture and cyberthreat environment of its users and partners.”
The bill states that “the plan shall include cyberthreat information, including cyberthreat indicators, critical vulnerability information, and critical infrastructures that could be exploited by attackers and cyber criminals.”
It would also require internet companies and service providers “to conduct a vulnerability assessment of all of their network systems and to ensure the integrity and availability of their systems.”
If the bill passes the House and the president signs it, it will go to the president for his signature.
However, the president will have the power to veto the bill.
Rep. Tom MacArthur (R, NJ), who is the chairman of the Freedom to Reform America Caucus, told the New York Times that the bill will not pass because it will “be a direct attack on the privacy of Americans.”
This week the House Judiciary Committee voted to pass the Cyber Security Act, a bill by Rep, Ted Lieu (D-CA), that would require the government and internet providers “and the entities with the ability to make the determinations” to block internet content and content that “contains material that incited violence, acts of hatred, discrimination or acts that would constitute an imminent threat to the physical safety of any person.”
The legislation would also create an Office of Congressional Ethics to investigate the conduct of members of Congress who engage in misconduct, including “the misuse of power or the improper disclosure of material or information.”
Rep. Lieu told the Times, “It’s important that we stop this from happening because the president is taking the same step he did with the Affordable Care Act.”
The White House responded to Rep. MacArthur’s concerns about the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act.
