As Twitchy reported earlier, Google took down the Buffalo mass shooter’s manifesto — yes, AP, it was a manifesto — because it violated their policies on hate speech. That’s actually too bad, because we were learning a lot about the shooter and his motivations. He claimed to have been a communist just a couple of years earlier, and despite everyone from Joe Lockhart to Chuck Schumer blaming Fox News and Tucker Carlson for the shooting, he mentioned in his manifesto exactly what sources radicalized him — not Fox News (too Jewish), not Tucker Carlson (never mentioned), not Facebook, and not Twitter … it was initially Reddit forums and then websites like the Daily Stormer.
Former New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio is leading the charge to “reign in the spread of hate” on Facebook and Twitter that had nothing to do with the shooting in Buffalo.
Americans are dying because companies like @Facebook @Twitch & @Twitter refuse to stop profiting off hate. They give murderers like the one in Buffalo a platform to weaponize racist ideology. It is past time for Congress to pass a #DigitalServicesAct & reign in the spread of hate https://t.co/qZf9IHJISy

This has nothing to do with Buffalo and everything to do with censoring voices you don’t agree with.

Yes the government controlling the spread of information. Because that always ends well and doesn’t lead to the government to massively abuse that power to quiet dissent and spread propaganda

Doesn’t take a New York minute before the communists come out of the woodwork to control your speech.

Show me the ‘hate’ exception clause in the First Amendment. Then tell me who decides, because there is very little anyone, anywhere, can say that someone, somewhere, is not going to ‘hate’.

Jesus dude. Read the room. You will never be relevant again and your opinion is meaningless. You had a chance to fix NYC and you demolished it during your reign of ineptitude and terror. Delete your account and leave the state.

Funny how politicians immediately jump to the conclusion that we need more gun control and less free speech.
