Hillary Clinton Gets Roasted After Ridiculous Tweet

On Friday, Former U.S. Secretary of State and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton received backlash on Twitter after telling the European Union to pass legislation to stop the spread of “disinformation” and “extremism” online on Thursday evening. Clinton’s remark and the tweets taking exception to it mark the growing divide between those who oppose free speech and those who promote censorship.

@HillaryClinton tweeted, “For too long, tech platforms have amplified disinformation and extremism with no accountability. The EU is poised to do something about it. I urge our transatlantic allies to push the Digital Services Act across the finish line and bolster global democracy before it’s too late.”

Clinton’s comment comes on the heels of the European Union’s agreement on the Digital Services Act, a law that will “better protect European users from hate speech, disinformation and other harmful online content” as well as “force tech companies to make it easier for users to flag problems, ban online ads aimed at kids and empower regulators to punish noncompliance with billions in fines,” ABC News reported. The legislation was approved early on Saturday.
ABC further reported that the legislation means that “Big tech companies like Google and Facebook parent Meta will have to police their platforms more strictly.”

Continuing the European trend of censorship in digital media, The Digital Services Act, or DSA, is “the EU’s third significant law targeting the tech industry, a notable contrast with the U.S. where lobbyists representing Silicon Valley’s interests have largely succeeded in keeping federal lawmakers at bay,” ABC continued. regarding enforcing the DSA, EU Internal Market Commissioner Thierry Breton said the EU, “will have plenty of stick to back up their laws, including ‘effective and dissuasive’ fines of up to 6% of a company’s annual global revenue, which for big tech companies would amount to billions of dollars. Repeat offenders could be banned from the EU, Breton said.”

While in the freedom-loving U.S. ABC reports, “Congress remains politically divided on efforts to address competition, online privacy, disinformation and more.”

Conservative Twitter users rose up and showed complete disdain for Clinton’s tweet on Friday, reminding her that she was part of the effort to tie former President Trump to the Russia Collusion “hoax” Fox News reported. Tweets also accused her of wanting to “control” speech and having a “totalitarian impulse,” Fox News reported. Those making their voices heard included conservatives from a wide range in American society.

Actor Adam Baldwin took exception to Hillary’s “tyrannical impulse,” tweeting, “No, your totalitarian impulse is wrong. Best and least restrictive practice is for the free market to distill and decide ideas. GTFO of the way!”

“The autocrats want to think for you. No thanks,” American Greatness contributor Thaddeus McCotter replied.

The Federalist co-founder Sean Davis answered the tweet with his own, saying, “You[sic] former campaign lawyer is under federal indictment for lying to the FBI about the ‘Russiagate’ hoax that your campaign funded. Sit down.”

Conservative author Kimberly Morin joined in, responding to Clinton’s post, asking, “You know all about DISINFORMATION, don’t you?”

The Washington Times columnist and comedian Tim Young tweeted out his own interpretation of Hillary’s words, “Translated: Restrict the First Amendment so that Democrats can control the narrative without challenge.”

“Once they called the revelations from Hunter’s laptop ‘disinformation’ they made it clear the word simply means ‘stuff damaging to Democrats.’ It shocks me that journalists take cries of ‘disinformation’ seriously still,” author and Washington Examiner columnist Tim Carney tweeted about tech platforms censoring the Hunter Biden laptop story in 2020.

Carney continued: “…and so we know exactly what the below [Hillary’s tweet] means. Democrats want to use the force of the government to push Big Tech to censor news and commentary that makes them look bad.”

Speculation about the timing of these new laws and Clinton’s statements made reference to the recent groundbreaking events by Elon Musk, who is bidding to buy Twitter. Musk’s reasons for the bid include promoting the right to free speech, and anti-censorship. The Media Research Center’s Vice President of Free Speech America and Business Dan Gainor drew a connection from Clinton’s statement to Musk’s bid, tweeting, “@elonmusk has scared the left so much hey now want more government control of speech.”

In regard to his bid to buy Twitter, Musk has tweeted,” Free speech is essential to a functioning democracy,” and added a question in a a poll, “Do you believe Twitter rigorously adheres to this principle?” The twitter-users’ answers to the poll were overwhelmingly No. The Washington Post reported that Musk’s vision of Twitter is a public town square where people can voice with few restrictions.

Gainor continued, “Like her co-conspirator Obama, Hillary Clinton also wants the government to regulate and censor speech she doesn’t like,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton tweeted, referencing the former president’s recent initiative to counter “disinformation” online.
