Glenn Greenwald just went off on the Biden administration and WH spokesperson Jen Psaki for their effort to censor speech on social media. He is correct in his outrage that this administration would attempt to silence speech they deem “misinformation”…This is a VERY slippery slope.
Seriously, who the f*ck is the White House to be dictating who should and should not be banned from social media platforms, to keep lists of who they think are the spreaders of “misinformation,” and then pressure companies they regulate to obey? This is pernicious sh*t:
Here's more of Jen Psaki issuing decrees on who should and shouldn't be allowed to use social media, then smugly scoffing at the notion that this should concern anyone on the ground that we're going to die if we don't submit to the White House's orders:https://t.co/3bAR2J9RMF

Just yesterday, Psaki announced the Biden administration is censoring posts on Facebook:
🚨🚨: Jen Psaki says the Biden administration is actively flagging what they deem "disinformation" about the pandemic to Facebook for censoring.

Disinformation for some is truth for others…facemasks anyone?
