Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has gotten the Left media’s attention with his newly proposed legislation to fine Big Tech for censoring political candidates in the state. In absolute shock, Left leaning programs deemed the proposal a political move to protect resident Donald Trump and other conservatives as the Right reported the news with renewed hope that someone will take the first step to stop Big Tech from interfering in elections.
“We’ve seen the power of their censorship over individuals and organizations, including what I believe is clear viewpoint discrimination,’’ said DeSantis. “Under our proposal, if a technology company de-platforms a candidate for elected office in Florida during the election, a company will face a daily fine of $100,000 until the candidate’s access to the platform is restored again.”
In a recent interview with Tucker Carlson from Fox News, Florida governor (R) Ron DeSantis added that the new law is, “Not only does that, we are going to do three different things. One is to protect Floridian’s data privacy from Big Tech which is a huge issue. As you said, protect Big Tech from interfering in an election, and that may mean you deplatform a candidate you don’t like. Two guesses as to which kind of candidate that Big Tech wouldn’t like. Then the general protections for deplaforming users and what we are allowing people to do is bringing civil suits under the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices statue and Fraud statute. We are also allowing the Attorney General to do that as well if Big Tech is not applying their terms of service in a principled way, which they almost never do.”
Ron DeSantis became governor in 2019 after serving Florida’s 6th congressional district in the United States House of Representatives from 2013 to 2018 where he fought to cut taxes and legislation making sexual harassment charges in the military easier for victims. As Governor, DeSantis has searched every program in Florida with excess cash and reallocated the unused funds to include hikes in teacher pay and added more to schools, a cause he has been adamant about improving since his election. He maintains his support for President Donald Trump and welcomes the family to Florida.
We celebrate Governor Ron DeSantis for his fight to stop Big Tech from censoring discriminately and for his continued work to Keep Florida Great!
