Sen. Warren Pledges to Silence Anyone Who Disagrees with Her
Hold on to your freedoms because Senator Elizabeth Warren is after them, this time though it’s not your guns that she’s after, it’s your freedom of speech.
Warren says that she intends on criminalizing free speech and even wants people jailed who post “disinformation” on the internet. But here’s my question, who gets to decide what disinformation is?
I mean, take for example the mess with have going on right now with the impeachment. The Democrats say that he 100% connected the funds that were supposed to go to Ukraine to them investigating Joe Biden. On the other hand, the Republicans say with 100% certainty that he did no such thing
Warren said, “Disinformation and online foreign interference erode our democracy, and Donald Trump has invited both. Anyone who seeks to challenge and defeat Donald Trump in the 2020 election must be fully prepared to take this on – and I’ve got a plan to do it.”
“I will push for new laws that impose tough civil and criminal penalties for knowingly disseminating this kind of information, which has the explicit purpose of undermining the basic right to vote.”

The entire plan would involve a public-private partnership, in fact. “A coordinated push to address disinformation will be far more effective than isolated efforts. When companies share information — to the extent allowed under privacy laws — they can better identify cross-platform disinformation campaigns and alert law enforcement officials of threats. This coordination will help identify and remove fraudulent accounts, deter the spread of disinformation, and rein in illegal activity.”
Strangely enough, though, it doesn’t seem Warren’s campaign would escape scrutiny under her own rules. Although she pledges that her campaign will not “knowingly use or spread false or manipulated information, including false or manipulated news reports or doctored images, audio, and videos on social media,” Warren herself has effectively contributed to the spread of disinformation online on several memorable occasions.
Warren, for example, has long insisted that she has Native American ancestry when, in fact, she is likely less than 1/64 Native American — and that 1/64 could come from anywhere on the North or South American continent. She relies on family lore to substantiate her claim, but has never been able to produce evidence any stronger than a lackluster DNA test result to support her claim — a claim she may have used to help institutions fill their minority candidate quotas.
