Crackpot Democrat Ted Lieu: I Would “Love to Be Able to Regulate the Content of Speech” (VIDEO)
Crackpot Democrat Ted Lieu (D-CA) admitted on CNN on Wednesday that he would “love to regulate the content of speech.”
He said this regarding accusations and credible evidence that the tech giants are eliminating conservative speech in America.
Facebook alone eliminated over one billion conservative page views from their platform in the last year.
Lieu was speaking to CNN host Brianna Keilar when he made the honest comments about freedom in America.
After CNN host Brianna Keilar praised Lieu for the “clever” stunt, she wondered if Democrats should have used more of their time to question the Google leader about how it and other tech companies can work to prevent the spread of conspiracy theories and other online trolling.
“It’s a very good point you make,” Lieu said. “I would love if I could have more than five minutes to question witnesses. Unfortunately, I don’t get that opportunity. However, I would love to be able to regulate the content of speech. The First Amendment prevents me from doing so, and that’s simply a function of the First Amendment, but I think over the long run, it’s better the government does not regulate the content of speech.”
Spoken like a true Democrat.
I agree there are serious issues, but the speech issues are protected by the First Amendment. Would I like to regulate Fox News? Yes, but I can't because the First Amendment stops me. And that's ultimately a good thing in the long run.
