President Trump took to Twitter to call on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to take on Big Tech by repealing Section 230.
Why does Twitter leave phony pictures like this up, but take down Republican/Conservative pictures and statements that are true? Mitch must fight back and repeal Section 230, immediately. Stop biased Big Tech before they stop you! @HawleyMO @MarshaBlackburn https://t.co/ah0nMeQdM0

No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider” (47 U.S.C. § 230)
This is the key to stopping Big Tech censorship. Section 230 gives Big Tech immunity from what people say on their site. For example, Twitter isn’t responsible for what its users say. However, since this is the case they also aren’t supposed to act like Publishers. The New York Times is responsible for what is written in the New York Times. If they publish an article they are responsible for it. That is why they are allowed to pick and choose what goes up. You can’t have it both ways though. Big Tech can’t have the freedoms of Section 203, which makes them not a publisher while still picking and choosing what users say on their website.
Big Tech is a threat to freedom in the United States. They know that if all ideas were allowed to spread then right-wing ideas would win out. This is why they must crack down on these ideas.
It is time to take them on.
