ISSUE: Governor DeSantis and Republicans in the Florida Legislature are trying to push through House Bill 7013, the “Transparency in Technology Act.” It is their way to get back at social media for banning Trump and others who incited insurrection at the Capitol.
Experts say that the proposed law is a direct violation of free speech. Their own staff analysis of questions whether the bill violates the U.S. Constitution.
This is just more political theater by the Republicans to exact revenge.
SCRIPT: My name is xxx and my zip code is xxx. I am a proud member of Palm Beach Indivisibles. I oppose House Bill 7013. Privately-owned social media companies are entitled to determine what speech they allow on their sites. I commend Facebook and Twitter for banning Trump from their platforms, which he used in an attempt to delegitimize a fair election and as a way to incite an insurrection.
