Connecticut’s Democrat Senator, Chris Murphy, said that conservatives should be shut out of social media, proving that he is not an American, but is, instead, an un-American fascist.
On Monday, Murphy announced his Chinese-styled censorship of the people’s right to free speech saying he feels people who aren’t in the proper party should be shut down.
“Infowars is the tip of a giant iceberg of hate and lies that uses sites like Facebook and YouTube to tear our nation apart. These companies must do more than take down one website. The survival of our democracy depends on it,” Murphy tweeted on August 6.

The president’s son was serious alarmed by this fascist proclamation by a sitting U.S. Senator.
“A Democrat Senator openly admitting that Big Tech’s censorship campaign is really about purging all conservative media. How long before Big Tech and their Democrat friends move to censor and purge @BreitbartNews, @DailyCaller and other conservatives voices from their platforms?” Donald Trump, Jr., tweeted on Tuesday.

Trump, Jr., is right. This is a chilling example of how far the Democrat Party has fallen from American ideals.
Indeed, Murphy could not be farther from American principles. Free political speech is the one type of speech that our founding fathers wanted most.
Murphy is just another liberal who is blissfully free of any historical knowledge because political free speech is precisely what the founders wanted to protect at all costs. The founders absolutely did not feel that just any speech should be sacrosanct, granted, but what they did want is to make political speech inviolable. They wanted every American to have the absolute freedom to take any political position, advocate for any candidate, and make any political statement they want to make.
After all, it should be remembered that at the time of the founding every state had speech laws preventing some types of speech. The laws were different from one colony to the next, of course, but one thing was the same everywhere after the Constitution was ratified. Political speech was protected. Anyone could take any political position they wanted.
But now, here we have Chris Murphy attempting to put an end to that freedom.
