Soros joins Pelosi in attacking Facebook: The government should decide what people post on social media

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has ramped up her attacks against Facebook in recent weeks, and now a billionaire and anti-Article V activist George Soros has joined her. 
    In a recent editorial published within the ny Times, Soros argues that Mark Zuckerberg should not be on top of things on the corporate he founded.


    “I repeat and reaffirm my accusation against Facebook under the leadership of Mr. Zuckerberg and Ms. Sandberg,” he concluded. “They follow just one guiding principle: Maximize profits regardless of the results. a method or another, they ought to not be left on top of things of Facebook.”

    Soros cites Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which immunizes most large social media platforms from liability for defamation. Without these protections, social media companies would be forced to follow government protocols for what they will and can't allow on their social media accounts.

    Soros, in other words (like Pelosi), wants the federal to possess a way larger say in what gets published on social media platforms like Facebook.
    He doesn't say that, of course. Instead, he claims he wants Washington to regulate Facebook to stay President Trump from being elected. 

    “Facebook helped Trump to urge elected and that I am afraid that it'll do an equivalent in 2020,” Soros says.
    “I believe that Mr. Trump and Facebook’s chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, realize that their interests are aligned — the president’s in winning elections, Mr. Zuckerberg’s in making money."
    Soros is not any doubt frightened of Trump's reelection. But there is a larger plan at work. By attacking Facebook and other social media platforms as dangerous and unregulated, Soros is pushing to centralize power within the hands of bureaucrats and politicians in Washington (who are often influenced by billionaires like Soros).

    Once Washington secures the facility to manage what people post on social media, there is no going back. They'll have the facility to regulate which posts go viral, what stories get attention, and what issues people care about.

    We have to create firewalls against this type of state overreach before it's too late. we will not trust D.C. to form the proper decision, which is why many Americans have turned to the states.
    An Article V Convention of States is named and controlled by the states and has the facility to propose constitutional amendments that limit the facility and jurisdiction of the federal. It takes 34 states to call such a convention, and 38 states to ratify any amendment proposals that begin of the convention. 

    The Constitution says nothing about controlling what people post on social media, and that they shouldn't have the facility to try to so. A Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments that clarify this fundamental and put the people back responsibility for their own online activity.
