It’s Wrong For Politicians To Announce Plans To Punish Companies For Speech, No Matter Who Does It

I feel like I keep needing to write this, but once again, no matter who does it and no matter which company they’re targeting, it’s wrong for politicians to promise to punish companies for their speech. For some reason, many people’s position on this point changes based on whether or not they like or dislike the politician, and whether or not they like or dislike the company. But it’s wrong.

It’s wrong when Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee go after Major League Baseball for its speech. It’s wrong when Senator Elizabeth Warren threatens Amazon for its speech. It’s wrong when Senator Marsha Blackburn (and a ton of others) threaten Disney for its speech. It’s wrong when White House officials threaten Facebook for its speech. And it’s wrong when Rep. Ken Buck threatens Apple for its speech.

All of this is grandstanding nonsense, but it’s designed to suppress speech. It’s designed to punish companies for speech that these elected officials dislike. And that’s even if the companies have said something stupid or acted in a way that deserves a regulatory response. By positioning any response as retaliation for speech, these politicians are fundamentally going against the 1st Amendment.

RT: What is Russia’s Sanctions Survival Plan?

The launch of the military operation in Ukraine has drawn the ire of the US and its allies, who have hit Russia with unprecedented sanctions in order to destabilize the country’s economy and pressure Moscow into ending the conflict. Among the many penalties imposed on the country over the past month, its financial system, energy exports, and forex reserves have been targeted. However, hard times call for prompt response measures, and Russia has come up with a few.

The Atlantic Council has released a report claimed across the Western media to provide additional evidence of “genocide” in China’s western region of Xinjiang. However, in less than 5 minutes of research it is possible to expose the report as propaganda built on existing, baseless claims coupled to known information about World Bank and other institutions funding activities inside China.

I show how the Atlantic Council uses facts like World Bank funding to help sneak past readers otherwise baseless claims regarding “genocide,” “forced labor,” and other alleged abuses.

I discuss who is behind the Atlantic Council, why they are deliberately lying about China, and how by the Atlantic Council’s own admission, their goal is to subordinate China to US global interests.
