California lawmaker wants “fact checkers” on social media, blogs

Amanda HeadRebel Contributor

As a California resident with an irreverent sense of humour and conservative political views, I'm worried about a bill tabled by a state lawmaker that supposedly wants to fight the spread of "fake news" online.

Before you shrug that this is just another crazy plan from the Left Coast, keep in mind that what starts here often makes it to your backyard (or computer) eventually...

Andrew Stephenson Professional fact checkers?? LMAO! Yeah sure. You commie wannabes are so pathetic. Will they correct BLM or other lefties about the FACT that cops shoot more white people. Or the FACT that Blacks kill more Whites than vice versa? And why are we doing an inquiry into aboriginal women when we already know the FACTS! Aboriginal men are responsible for the vast majority of the crimes against them and a many of them were given a slap on the wrist by our legal system , allowing them to go back and finish what they started, those are FACTS! And the FACT that the solve rate is pretty much the same. But of course the left needs to cultivate victims so they can raise taxes and take away freedoms when they are the damn problem in the first place.

Andrew isn’t concerned with Social Media censors; until it affects her speech! Don’t worry Andrew, eventually, you will be on the wrong side of censors…the goal posts are constantly moving!!!!

I’m not surprised the Rebel would feel threatened by professional fact-checking.

The left is trying to lock down social media. No way they want another Trump victory.
