UK to restrict Big Tech from ’discriminating’ based on political views

The UK’s Govt. plans to ban technology companies from ’discriminating’ against particular political viewpoints, according to a press release about the new proposed Online Safety Bill. The anti-censorship clause is just a minor part of a much larger draft bill. ’When moderating content, companies will need to take into account the political context,’ the press release continued.

“Companies will also be forbidden from discriminating against particular political viewpoints and will need to apply protections equally to a range of political opinions, no matter their affiliation,” Please explain to me why the gizmodo journalist so vehemently espouses that equality is a stupid thing and only right wing people/white supremacists (yes, the article actually makes that correlation) would back it. Is the liberal extremist who wrote this saying that liberals do not want equal protections under the law? By definition, the only people who hate equality are prejudicial bigots. If right wing people are the ones who back EQUALITY, then good golly, I’d hate to be a liberal/bigot.

Pretty incredible how these supposed “journalists” can just make crap up and offer no proof in their articles to substantiate their claims. They whine about misinformation, while they write misinformation. Hopefully better, smarter and more objective journalists emerge over time.

This could have been you too, America. But you gave all 3 branches of your government to the creators of this nonsense.

A surprise but a pleasant one. Maybe there is hope for a return to free speech in Britain.

Who is Matt Novak and why is he lying about online censorship? He can say whatever he wants on Twitter because he is gay and follows the BLM bull sh1t. He is a privileged white male but because he is gay he gets a pass? He is higher up on the woke heirarchy than women. Imagine that, a white male given more opportunities and a voice above almost all women. lol 😂

Meh, considering people are arrested for their speech in the UK, I will hold out on assuming this is as forthright as it might first appear.
