Ron DeSantis Earns Standing Ovation for Defending Anti-Censorship Bill

(ConservativeHub.com) – Many Americans are getting sick and tired of social media giants censoring their posts. President Joe Biden quietly revoked former President Donald Trump’s executive order preventing online censorship earlier this month, leaving it up to individual states to address mounting abuses by Big Tech companies.

On May 24, Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a new bill into law limiting Big Tech companies’ ability to censor political opinions. A reporter asked him if the bill was passed for Donald Trump at the signing ceremony. “The bill is for everyday Floridians,” he responded.

Continuing, DeSantis said there was another issue to consider when it comes to online censorship: double standards. He referred to Twitter’s decision to permanently suspend the account of a sitting President of the United States while allowing Iran’s spiritual leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, to post about killing Jews in a string of posts beginning in 2014 and continuing through 2018.

Understandably, DeSantis’ response earned him a standing ovation from attendees of the bill-signing ceremony.
