Graham: ‘I’m more determined than ever’ to strip big tech of section 230 protections
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) announced on Twitter that he has found new motivation to fight big tech and its Section 230 protections. Graham said he “willingly” accepts his fate of a potential banning but that the removal of Trump’s account was a “serious mistake.”
“The Ayatollah can tweet, but Trump can’t. Says a lot about the people who run Twitter,” Graham tweeted.
One of the most effective solutions to stop the discrimination conservatives are seeing increasingly on big tech is strip Section 230 protections—as recently reported by this author on SaraACarter.com.
Graham agrees with this assessment, tweeting “I’m more determined than ever to strip Section 230 protections from Big Tech (Twitter) that let them be immune from lawsuits.”
Section 230 is a small portion of the Communications Decency Act of 1996 (CDA)—an act passed with the purpose of preventing minors from accessing sexually explicit materials on the Internet. The CDA itself was an addition to the Telecommunications Act of 1996, which sought to expand competitiveness in this groundbreaking internet market. The CDA was added on as an amendment—Title V—months later and thus Section 230 became law.
It allows big tech companies to remove and block content it deems to be “obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable, whether or not such material is constitutionally protected.” The law’s only boundaries are that removal of speech be done in “good faith.”
Intended to allow internet companies to block harmful content and to avoid consequences for content put out by their users, this section has since been hijacked to pave the consequence-free way for big tech to shadow-ban, silence, and squash conservative thought.

Gabbard ‘no greater expression of hatred..towards women than trying to erase us as a category of people’
Former Democratic Rep. of Hawaii Tulsi Gabbard, had no fear in expressing how she felt about the state of woke ideology after a biological male was given a courage award on International Women’s Day earlier this month. She called it delusional, stating these woke beliefs create hatred and hostility against women.
Gabbard brought up the fact that the “woman” who was honored in the White House was “not actually a woman at all.” She stated what everyone knew: it was a biological male who identifies as a woman.
In early March, on International Women’s Day Alba Rueda, a transgender woman who serves as Argentina’s special envoy for sexual orientation and gender identity, was given the White House award for being a woman of courage. The International Women of Courage Award ceremony hosted by first lady Jill Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken and it it reflects a growing woke ideology.
It wasn’t just the White House. USA Today also honored a biological male for ‘Woman of the Year.’ In fact, Minnesota Democratic State Rep. Leigh Finke was on the cover and “is the first openly transgender person to be elected to and serve in the Minnesota legislature,” as stated in reports. Finke was also named “Woman of the Year” for Minnesota despite serving in office for less than three months, according to Fox News.

The Biden administration honored Rueda because of his courage. They said it was the courage of his transitioning and the struggles he endured. There are many biological females who endure great struggles and triumphs everyday but apparently the White House couldn’t find one to fit this category.
Gabbard brought up two major points on why this is so dangerous and disrespectful towards women.
First she stated, “there is no greater expression of hatred and hostility towards women then to try and erase us as a category of people and then to minimize us to being a construct of anyone imagination.” Her second point she stated was, “that by rejecting the objective truth, they are rejecting the existence of the objective truth as a whole.”
She is correct and one of the greatest manipulation tactics a government can use to subvert its citizens is to destroy the idea of the objective truth. A nation that is indoctrinated from the education system, to the t.v. shows we watch, to the movies that depict such lunacy and destroy the values and beliefs of a country will inevitably fall from chaos until a new regime takes over for the betterment of society.
This is exactly what we have seen in the past with examples such as the USSR, Cuba, Nazi Germany, and even the CCP today. Gabbard was a long standing Democrat who had to leave the party because she could see the direction they are heading. The woke ideology we are witnessing in the U.S. over the past 20 years is simply a subversion of our Democratic republic.
Yurie Bezmenov a Soviet journalist and former KGB office, who defected to Canada, gave a speech equally as riveting as Gabbard. In this speech he talks about the fall of Russia and the rise of the USSR. As a former KGB member he was a part of the subversion process. He understood what it took to shift the culture of a nation state.
In short, he explained that it only takes 15 years to indoctrinate a whole generation and to create an entire generation of sleeper cells who aren’t even aware that they are part of the subversion process.
This is what Tulsi is urging her listeners to truly understand. People must see beyond the idea that truth is merely a gray space -that it is no longer relevant and realize that this type of thinking is used to confuse and subvert the masses.
If there is nothing that is concrete and no truths that we can rely on then Gabbard is correct that women will be reduced to nothing and the years of fighting for what was once equity will vanish.
