A new poll from Echelon Insights found Senator Josh Hawley’s bill which aims to force Big Tech companies to be politically neutral was “the most popular tech-related proposal” out of multiple plans tested.
The plan is supported by voters from both parties and Independents by huge margins.
Echelon Insights Patrick Ruffini shared the results Thursday on Twitter:
Senator Hawley talked about his bill Thursday at the White House Social Media Summit:
“Americans are tired of Big Tech censorship. Time to listen to them, not the Big Tech-funded apologists,” Hawley said on Twitter, linking to the above poll.
Though voters from both parties are clamoring for Big Tech to be reigned in without any action on the part of our congress, 140 House Republicans just voted with Democrats to give a massive handout to Google and other tech giants by passing a bill that will hand out hundreds of thousands of green cards to Indian contract workers so they can drive down wages and outsource our nation’s jobs.
The disconnect between what the public actually wants and what our sold out (or blackmailed?) criminal congress is giving us could not be any bigger.
US President Donald Trump’s favorite social media platform has stopped working even as he was hosting a White House meeting about deplatforming and other forms of online censorship. The cause of the outage is unknown.
“Sorry, something went wrong” was the message that greeted Twitter users starting at 1:30 pm Eastern time in the US, according to the monitoring website DownDetector.
The outage appears to be global, with reports coming from all corners of the world and not just the US. Downdetector.com showed that there are nearly 50,000 incidents of people reporting issues.
As the breakdown occurred, President Trump was hosting a number of social media creators – rather than company officials, to the consternation of mainstream media outlets – to “engage directly with these digital leaders in a discussion on the power of social media,” according to White House spokesman Judd Deere.
Trump has been a prolific Twitter user, opting to keep posting from his personal account rather than the official @POTUS handle created under his predecessor Barack Obama. This has led to lawsuits from activists that Trump blocked from access to his tweets, and federal judges ruling that the platform is a designated public forum. The platform has also rewritten some of its rules with Trump in mind.
Twitter is usually where most social media users go to react when outages strike other platforms – such as the May incident that left over 2 billion Facebook users in the dark for 14 hours. Its last major breakdown was in April 2018, when the platform stopped operating for several hours on a Friday afternoon.

An Antifa protester in DC attempted to light the American flag on fire on Saturday, but gave up when they could not figure out how to use the matches.
The aggressive far-left demonstrators were in the city to whine about the Demand Free Speech rally being held by supporters of President Donald Trump who were protesting against Big Tech censorship. Speakers included Laura Loomer, Gavin McInnes and congressional candidate/YouTuber Joey Saldino.
The black clad activist, with a t-shirt wrapped around his head, fiddled with the matches for approximately 30 seconds before realizing that his attempt to be edgy had failed.
Failed flag-burner was not the only Antifa member being mocked online during the event.
There were also creepy drag clowns and another member of Antifa did their best Bane impression while pointlessly wearing a gas mask without any filters on it, rendering it completely useless.
A mob of white Antifa members also harassed a black Trump supporter and stole the MAGA hat off an Asian man.
The cosplaying activists did not stop the Demand Free Speech rally from taking place, instead spending most of their day harassing random tourists and failing to break through police lines.

Hugely influential forum locked down after a single complaint from a left-wing journalist
JUNE 26, 2019
Reddit has quarantined the hugely popular ‘The Donald’ forum on the night of the first Democratic presidential debates in yet another flagrant example of Big Tech election meddling.
Users attempting to access the forum are met with a warning message asking them “are you sure you want to visit this community?”
“The_Donald has officially been quarantined by Reddit. They waited until the election to totally suppress us,” tweeted the forum’s owner.
The forum now has much reduced functionality and its owners can only have it lifted out of quarantine by means of a successful appeal to Reddit. A quarantine is sometimes used as a pre-cursor to a total ban.
Reddit claims it shut down the forum due to “threats of violence against police and public officials.”
The quarantine was put in place after a single complaint from Vox’s Carlos Maza, the same activist/journalist who attempted to get Steven Crowder’s YouTube channel shut down earlier this month.
“Within 2 days of Carlos Maza calling for The_Donald Subreddit to be censored Reddit has taken action and quarantined one of the largest Pro-Trump forums,” commented Tim Pool.
“Reddit claims that The_Donald was quarantined because they have to spend too much time removing content on the subreddit,” tweeted the moderator of the forum. “This is a report of everything they’ve “had” to do in the last month. (Including stripping me of my ability to do the job they’re complaining about).”
The Donald is a hugely influential Internet forum with around 754,000 subscribers
A 2018 study by researchers at University College London found that the most “effectively spread memes” originated on r/the_donald.
Quarantining the forum on the night of the first Democratic presidential debates clearly represents yet another example of Big Tech meddling in the election process.
