DeSantis proposes new measures to fight Big Tech deplatforming of political candidates, including a $100G fine

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis detailed his latest crackdown on big tech Wednesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

DeSantis proposed three measures to protect Floridians from big tech, including a $100,000 fine for social media companies that de-platform political candidates.

DeSantis’s new proposals will benefit individual protections as well, allowing users and the Florida attorney general to sue companies if they have been treated unfairly. Additionally, DeSantis will require social media companies to provide full disclosure to their users of actions taken against their accounts for violating policies. Finally, actions taken by companies to effectively promote a political candidate will be considered campaign contributions.

“We think that this is something Floridians want protection from and I think it will end up being a really good first step,” DeSantis told Carlson. “I think most folks do want protection for their privacy and their data, I think most folks want protection from being de-platformed.”

DeSantis thinks these new measures will be positively received and may set a precedent for the rest of the country.

“When Florida leads, other states start following. So I think you will see other legislatures follow suit,” DeSantis said.

DeSantis acknowledged that he’s prepared for a “big fight” in the legislative session.

“I think it will be very positively received, but we’re buckled up. We know there are always fights over these things, so stay tuned.”

Uvalde, TX Mayor Calls Beto O’Rourke a ‘Sick Son of a B****’ After he Heckled Gov. Abbott’s Presser

The vile act of politicizing horrific tragedies such as the Uvalde, Texas elementary school massacre, has been in full force. Democrat Beto O’Rourke “was escorted out of Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s press conference Wednesday after he showed up and heckled the governor in the middle of an update on the elementary school massacre in Uvalde” reports The Blaze.

Beto is a former congressman from El Paso, Texas as well as a Democratic presidential nominee briefly for the 2020  elections. During his time, he campaigned hard on his support for a mandatory gun buyback scheme.

The Blaze reported on Beto’s behavior at Abbott’s press conference:

As Abbott was finishing his remarks to reporters, O’Rourke, the Democratic candidate for governor, stood up and began speaking about the need for gun control legislation.

“Excuse me,” Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said as O’Rourke ignored him and went on about how “the time has come to put a stop” to gun violence. O’Rourke did not have a microphone, and most of his comments were inaudible.

“Sit down!” shouted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as the Democrat kept speaking.

“You’re out of line and an embarrassment!” Patrick told O’Rourke, while others began raising their voices.

“You are doing nothing!” O’Rourke yelled at Abbott as police officers began to march him out of the room.

“You need to get his a** out of here, this isn’t the place to talk this over,” said Uvalde Mayor Don Mclaughlin, calling O’Rourke a “sick son of a b****.”
