Here's the full video of my statement. I only had 5 minutes to tell our story, so if I sound like Ben Shapiro, that's why.
Under this new Digital Bill of Rights, Floridians will have the right to:
- Private conversations without surveillance by Big Tech
- Participate online without unfair censorship
- See internet search engines manipulation
- Control personal data
- Protect children from online harms
Good to see you out there earning your paycheck! Love you Seth.
Fantastic! What a way to start my day! DeSantis 2024
As a Christian, my world view is that something good always comes from something bad. The Bee's being banned from Twitter was a final straw. Elon took notice. Thus here we are! Moving forward toward uncensored speech. I have hope...
So grateful for Babylon Bee CEO & Elon Musk & Ben Shapiro & Candace Owens & more whose mental acuity & honest-reality-check public forums reveal the social media tyrannical group-speak and push them back to their caves of cultural self-righteousness.
You are awesome! And the Ben Shapiro reference brilliant! I’m sure Ben loves your work too!
What about stopping the CBDC?
Thank you Someone!
This is very nearly the opposite of how to regain free speach. Cosying up to government as we move towards totalitarianism means you're definitively on the wrong side of history.
Every one of the Articles in the real Bill of Rights is a prohibition on government meddling. The Florida "Digital Bill of Rights" is the opposite: every bit of it is government medding in private affairs.
What's so ironic about this effort is that the government is in large part responsible for the censoring which people rightly deplore. So now the government is going to "fix" the problem it caused by reversing course and forbidding censorship?? Anyone who believes this, please name one "fix" the government has undertaken which actually worked, without spinning off a host of new problems as it failed to address the original one?
Also, many of the provisions are unenforceable and will obviously be widely flouted, which will lead to the selective enforcement abuses which always follow such laws.
This law will cause endless legal squabbling, as people test the edge of what is protected by it. Companies will be afraid to set reasonable limits on threats of violence for fear of being sued at great expense to themselves.
The marketplace takes care of all the issues this bill alleges to address; look for example at Rumble's growing number of accounts vs. YouTube's stagnation. It takes time and effort, but the marketplace gets the job done. Involving the government gets no job done; it only creates a bigger mess.
I am very uncomfortable with you helping to support Desatis's run against Trump. I am done.
Define Private - I would define it as over bandwidth I purchased. If I purchase it, its mine.
Define 'unFair' -
Define manipulation - How about making them reveal their ranking system algorithm, which is hidden because no one would have faith that everything on the first page had not just simply paid huge dollars to be on the first page of results. Also, if they say it based on the number of links existing to the page, how about making them verify that the links are all not just simply made up and copied a million times, simple to do, just check the traffic to the website does not come from a limited number IP addresses.
Define Control - This one will keep lawyers busy and rich for the foreseeable future.
Protect Children from Online Harms - How? children cannot access any IP addresses not on a government approved list?
A good start. I wish us luck😏
