California is in big trouble companies and people are fleeing their state in record numbers due to high costs of living and oppressive taxes.
But instead of taking care of its own citizens they are making thing easier for illegals!
Like that wasn’t enough now they want to kill the free speech!
Richard Pan is an American politician currently serving in the California State Senate.
Pan recently introduced legislation to crack down on free speech on the internet.
Pan’s legislation would force online publishers to utilize state-sanctioned fact checkers to approve content before it is posted online.
He is a Democrat representing the 6th Senate District, which encompasses parts of Sacramento and Yolo counties. Pan is a member of the California Asian & Pacific Islander Legislative Caucus.
Jon Rappaport reported:
The bill is titled “SB1424 Internet: social media: false information: strategic plan.”
It targets social media based in California. But as you read the bill, you see it appears to define social media as any Internet blog, website, or communication.
SB1424 is brief. Read it:
This bill would require any person who operates a social media, as defined, Internet Web site with a physical presence in California to develop a strategic plan to verify news stories shared on its Web site. The bill would require the plan to include, among other things, a plan to mitigate the spread of false information through news stories, the utilization of fact-checkers to verify news stories, providing outreach to social media users, and placing a warning on a news story containing false information.
(a) Any person who operates a social media Internet Web site with physical presence in California shall develop a strategic plan to verify news stories shared on its Internet Web site.
(b) The strategic plan shall include, but is not limited to, all of the following:
(1) A plan to mitigate the spread of false information through news stories.
(2) The utilization of fact-checkers to verify news stories.
(3) Providing outreach to social media users regarding news stories containing false information.
(4) Placing a warning on a news story containing false information.
(c) As used in this section, “social media” means an electronic service or account, or electronic content, including, but not limited to, videos, still photographs, blogs, video blogs, podcasts, instant and text messages, email, online services or accounts, or Internet Web site profiles or locations.
I hope you can see the big picture this bill is a free speech killer!
Democrats try to assassinate freedom as if it were their fetus, same as freedom-destroying leftists everywhere (e.g. USSR, NAZI Germany, China, NK, Cuba, Venezuela and most Western countries run by Third Way socialists).
