The GOP wants Elon Musk to ban Iran's leaders and censor "hate speech" once he takes over Twitter.
From Breitbart, "GOP Reps to Elon Musk: Stop Illegal Twitter ‘Support’ for Terror-Designated Iran Regime Accounts":
In a letter penned to the likely soon-to-be owner of social media giant Twitter, Republican Congresswoman Claudia Tenney of New York along with several other lawmakers called upon the Tesla CEO to uphold U.S. law by preventing certain Iranian figures and organizations from utilizing Twitter to further their aims.Why would the content of his tweets matter if this was just a sanctions issue?
They're bringing it up because sanctions are not the issue, they just want Iran's leaders censored.
The letter continues by emphasizing the value of freedom of speech and the opposition by its signatories to any "arbitrary or political censorship" on the part of the platform.If it was illegal, the US government would be hauling Twitter into court as we speak. It's not, they just want Iran censored.
Late last month, Republican Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy told Sean Hannity that Elon Musk must ban so-called "hate speech" on Twitter.
When the GOP controlled the House, Senate, Presidency and Supreme Court they didn't lift a finger to protect free speech online. After losing the House, they made some murmurs about protecting free speech in between direct calls for more censorship. Trump signed an executive order to ban criticism of Israel on college campuses and multiple states passed unconstitutional bills to outlaw boycotts of Israel but no serious measures were passed to protect free speech online.
