Facebook and Twitter censorship of pro life ads
https://thefederalist.com/2020/02/03/ins...formation/

I think its pretty clear there is a threat to free speech. We need to 1) end Facebook, Google and Twitter's exemptions for liability from posts on its sites since it clearly does choose which to publish; and 2) use anti-trust to break up Google and take a look at Facebook and Twitter.

"...That email came March 22: Human Coalition’s account was suspended from running ads—any ads—on Twitter. Human Coalition appealed, but to no avail. Five days later, I reached out to Twitter’s press team and asked three questions:

What, specifically, was the policy violation that led to this action?
It’s my understanding that Planned Parenthood (@PPFA) is eligible to run advertisements. Is that the case?
If so, what is the difference between @PPFA and @HumanCoalition?
Two hours after my email to Twitter, Human Coalition received a surprise update: Twitter reversed their suspension and cleared them to run ads again. Twitter assured me that the timing was a coincidence. Anyone familiar with Big Tech’s handling of censorship knows better...."

link: WATCH: Here’s the 30-Second Pro-Life Super Bowl Commercial Fox Rejected

From the article:

Quote:Pro-life advocates have noted that FOX found no problem with running another controversial ad during the big game on Sunday. A Sabra hummus commercial scheduled to air features two drag queens/LGBTQ activists.

Monica Cole of One Million Moms told One News Now that the network has a double standard.

“They approved of this particular [drag queen] commercial to air when children are watching the Super Bowl and they know that they’re watching,” she said.

Pushing an agenda becomes problematic when both sides are allowed to present their message.

Choice sounds familiar

Speaks for itself. Despite everything, nature defies inhumanity (last paragraphs).
