If Elizabeth Warren becomes POTUS, she’ll make sure to tackle the epidemic of too many Americans having illegal opinions and then expressing them online. The goyim knowing HAS to be contained before we have another mess, and then mommy can’t be president because she’s too busy cleaning up the mess the naughty internet children have left!
Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Wednesday released a plan to fight disinformation and to hold tech companies accountable for their actions in light of the 2016 election.
“Disinformation and online foreign interference erode our democracy, and Donald Trump has invited both,” Warren said in a Tweet Wednesday. “Anyone who seeks to challenge and defeat Donald Trump in the 2020 election must be fully prepared to take this on – and I’ve got a plan to do it.”
They’re just openly saying it now: someone needs to lose their head for Donald Trump’s surprise victory in 2016.

It’s almost as if she’s making presidential decisions before she’s elected, as well as making demands of Silicon Valley, implying that there’ll be hell to pay if they don’t comply.
Warren proposed to combat disinformation by holding big tech companies like Facebook, Twitter and Google responsible for spreading misinformation designed to suppress voters from turning out.
“I will push for new laws that impose tough civil and criminal penalties for knowingly disseminating this kind of information, which has the explicit purpose of undermining the basic right to vote,” Warren said in a release.
Any information shared online that CNN or the ADL doesn’t like will now be considered criminal if it is political in nature?
I think that’s what she’s calling for here…?
Warren, who has been an advocate for breaking up big tech companies like Amazon and Facebook, has said that she wants to make “big structural changes to the tech sector to promote more competition.” It’s part of a broader policy to stop disinformation, requiring tech companies and the government to come together to solve the problem.
As president, Warren said she would reinstate the position of cybersecurity coordinator at the National Security Council, a position crucial to protecting the U.S. She added she will also open up data for research so that academics and organizations can provide the public with knowledge on disinformation.
“The stakes of this election are too high — we need to fight the spread of false information that disempowers voters and undermines democracy,” Warren said. “I’ll do my part — and I’m calling on my fellow candidates and big tech companies to do their part too.”
The part about breaking up tech monopolies I think is too good to be true. Even if Washington and New York were concerned by a new political power base rising in Silicon Valley and wanted to quash it, I doubt they would actually do anything that might upset their base of support in the industry.
Breaking up the tech monopolies and stifling free speech are contradictory positions to take here and I don’t buy this talk about monopoly-busting from Warren for even a second.
Besides, the only person I would trust to break up the tech monopolies would either be Tulsi Gabbard or Andrew Yang – both of whom are younger than 70 and so have some inkling of what the internet is and why it is important to keep it at least somewhat free and competitive. Bernie, hopefully, will just send everyone to the Gulag – or more realistically, just raise taxes on some companies and otherwise not do anything at all.
Still, it’s weird that Elizabeth Warren is coming out there and making a big deal about promising to censor the internet – she keeps bringing up this talking point from time to time. You’d think that with her collapsing numbers, she’d be looking for something actually popular that she can give to the voters to get them excited like Bernie does with his Gulag plan, Yang with his
NEETbux Freedom Dividend and Tulsi with her pledge to stop fighting Israel’s wars.
Me, I’m still waiting for a candidate to come out and hit the public with the 4:20 plan.
I think it would be very popular.
