Biden Calls for More Censorship Ahead of the 2024 Election

Zachary Faria, Washington Examiner, June 7, 2023

President Joe Biden wants to dictate censorship policies to social media companies because he and the Democratic Party still can’t quit their desire to censor speech they don’t like as “disinformation.”

The latest instance of this comes regarding YouTube, which said that it would stop removing videos that contain “content that advances false claims that widespread fraud, errors, or glitches occurred in the 2020 and other past US Presidential elections.” The company rationally noted that the policy was “curtailing political speech without meaningfully reducing the risk of violence or other real-world harm.”

According to Biden’s campaign, “YouTube’s reckless and irresponsible decision will invite further democratic decay and potential violence, and we urge them to reconsider this policy.” YouTube is going to get people killed, if Biden is to be believed. That is not an exaggeration of what he thinks: Biden outright said that social media companies were “killing people” for hosting COVID-19 “misinformation.”


On top of this all, Biden funded the Global Disinformation Index that blacklisted conservative media, pressured social media outlets to censor information on Twitter, and attempted to form a “Disinformation Governance Board” run by a liberal partisan who dismissed the New York Post’s accurate reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop as disinformation. {snip}
