(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- The Freedom Caucus leadership joined Facebook, Twitter, and Google last week in opposing legislation that would have curbed Big Tech’s ostensibly limitless power and status as an exception to the law. The measure also aims to stifle Silicon Valley’s cooperation with the Chinese Communist Party, but Scott Perry, the chairman of the Freedom Caucus, and Jim Jordan, the vice chair, could not support it.
The House of Representatives passed legislation last week that targets traitorous Big Tech monopolies that are doing business with the Chinese Communist Party and other foreign entities. Notably, they did it without the help of Jim Jordan, vice chair and chairman of the Freedom Caucus, and Scott Perry (R-PA) (R-OH).
Rep. Ken Buck of Colorado proposed the measure, which would impose anti-trust laws on Big Tech companies like Facebook, Google, and Twitter to prevent them from stifling any arising free-market competitors.
However, even though it attacked Silicon Valley’s extensive ties to the Chinese Communist Party and other outside forces, Scott Perry and Jim Jordan, the leaders of the Freedom Caucus, vehemently opposed it.
During a Newsmax interview, Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz, who backed the anti-trust, anti-CCP measures, said that “every lobbyist paid for by Big Tech was fighting to try and get these bills defeated.”
According to Gaetz, “this law creates a healthy marketplace so that additional innovative companies can grow without being stifled by the anti-competitive actions that we see from Facebook, Apple, Google, and Amazon.”
Gaetz continued, noting how actions to break up Big Tech monopolies will improve free speech and the interchange of ideas online: “There’s an explicit attempt to limit your ability to communicate by limiting the platforms that are available to you for that speech.” Big Tech is currently aligned with the radical left and supports the suppression of speech that contradicts their narrative.
Rep. Jim Jordan is being slammed by conservatives for siding with Big Tech for at least the second time in recent memory because of his opposition to the anti-trust, anti-CCP legislation.
Jordan voted against a bill earlier this year that would have prevented Big Tech companies from unjustly sending online traffic to their business associates, many of whom have connections to foreign governments and influence operations. That bill is still making its way through the DC government.
