Conservatives have been censored for years. The Left keeps pushing it further and further.
And Democrats’ massive censorship plan was just foiled by Republicans.
House Republicans have won a crucial battle against Big Tech censorship with a key provision included in the 2024 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
This provision effectively prohibits the Department of Defense (DoD) from contracting with any organization involved in censoring domestic news outlets including disinformation companies like NewsGuard.
This victory represents a major step forward in the fight against the increasingly coordinated effort to silence conservative voices online.
For too long, these biased and manipulative “fact-checking” organizations have used their self-proclaimed authority to label legitimate news outlets as “misinformation” in an attempt to stifle dissent and manipulate public opinion.
Rep. Mike Rogers, Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, hailed the provision as a critical blow to the “far-Left’s attacks on conservative outlets.”
He declared, “We will continue to defend freedom of speech against the Biden administration’s far-left overreach.”
This crucial amendment comes as the Pentagon’s $750,000 contract with NewsGuard, ostensibly to explore potential military applications of their technology, raised serious concerns about government funding of censorship efforts.
The committee aide who spoke on the condition of anonymity emphasized that these “disinformation” companies “often censor conservative news outlets” under the guise of combatting misinformation.
The provision specifically targets the use of such tools by the DoD in allocating its advertising budget.
It mandates that any entity involved in recruitment advertising must certify they do not engage in “censorship” based on “personal political preferences or biases.”
This ensures that taxpayer dollars are not channeled towards organizations that seek to silence conservative voices.
This victory sets a powerful precedent and sends a clear message that the American people will not tolerate government-funded censorship of their news sources.
While the Pentagon may not be the sole offender in this regard, it marks a significant turning point in the fight against the broader censorship industry.
The Daily Wire’s recent lawsuit against the State Department for its own funding of similar technologies further underscores the need for continued vigilance and resistance to these insidious efforts.
This is a major win for freedom of speech and conservative media however the fight is far from over.
The Radical Left hates the truth, and they hate the thought of Americans knowing who they really are.
We must continue to stand up for the TRUTH and we must not allow the Left to control the narrative in this nation.
We must take the power back from these corrupt corporations and individuals and save America.
