Twelve State Attorneys General Write Letter to Big Tech Asking Them to Suppress Americans with the ‘Wrong’ Viewpoint

DM

A dozen Democratic attorneys general from across the country sent a letter addressed to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg this week asking them to silence Americans who are critical of the coronavirus vaccine on social media. A plurality of conservatives and moderates are now calling for less regulation of free speech and for an end to the suppression of voices that challenge “woke” orthodoxies and science which Democrats would like to consider settled. On the other hand, powerful Democrats are ordering more assaults on the First Amendment rights of Americans online. A letter with a header from the office of Connecticut Attorney General William Tong, which is dated March 24, sees 12 attorneys general ask to have those whose viewpoints which are considered wrong, or “misleading” be silenced by leftist Big Tech. “As Attorneys General committed to protecting the safety and well-being of the residents of our states, we write to express our concern about the use of your platforms to spread fraudulent information about coronavirus vaccines and to seek your cooperation in curtailing the dissemination of such information,” the letter opened.
