New Red Scare: Tech company officials grovel before Senate inquisitors, pretend Lindsey Graham isn’t an idiot

Source: The Hill

“Facebook, Google and Twitter officials were grilled on Tuesday by lawmakers from both parties on the Senate Judiciary Committee, who expressed frustration with the companies’ response so far to the use of their platforms by Russia in last year’s election. Lawmakers pushed the companies for more answers on how their platforms were used by both Russia and terrorist groups, and stressed that it was in the national security interests of the U.S. to find solutions. ‘The bottom line is that these platforms are being used to undermine and harm our way of life,’ said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), the panel’s chairman.” (10/31/17)

    That’s almost funny. They are all idiots. How could you tell the difference?

    That’s strange, I always thought that (at least in theory) “our way of life” is to be free, and in particular to have freedom of speech. Luckily I have Mr. Graham to set me straight.
