Adam Schiff And Democrats Just Threatened Facebook….

Democrats are currently in a state of utter panic as they are gradually losing control of social media.

They’ve been trying to restrict conservatives for years, and they’ve mostly been successful.

However, those times might be coming to an end.

Both Facebook and Twitter have taken action to reestablish free expression on their own platforms.

Democrats have not taken well to this.

A letter of threat was submitted to Facebook by a coalition of democratic opponents of free speech, led by Adam Schiff.

Democrats assert that they will initiate congressional action if Facebook discontinues using its filtering system.

Here’s the latest on Schiff and the threatening democrats from Fox News:

With the restoration of free speech protections on Twitter, panic has grown on the left that its control over social media could come to an end. Now, some of the greatest advocates of censorship in Congress are specifically warning Facebook not to follow Twitter in restoring free speech to its platform.

In a chilling letter from Reps. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., André Carson, D-Ind., Kathy Castor, D-Fla., and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Facebook was given a not-so-subtle threat that reducing its infamous censorship system will invite congressional action. The letter to Meta’s president of global affairs, Nick Clegg, is written on congressional stationery “as part of our ongoing oversight efforts.”

With House Republicans pledging to investigate social media censorship when they take control in January, these four Democratic members are trying to force Facebook to “recommit” to censoring opposing views and to make election censorship policies permanent. Otherwise, they suggest, they may be forced to exercise oversight into any move by Facebook to “alter or rollback certain misinformation policies.”

Schiff is so panicked that he’s fighting a two front war against both Facebook AND Twitter.

Schiff also took aim at Elon Musk over at Twitter.

The New York Post has more:

Adam Schiff popped up on CNN’s “State of The Union” show Sunday morning to issue barely veiled threats to Elon Musk for trying to restore free speech on Twitter.

Ostensibly, the lame-duck chairman of the House Intelligence Committee joined Jake Tapper to crow about expected charges against Donald Trump on Monday from his January 6 star chamber.

But Schiff moved on to complain about the “big problem right now with social media companies and their failure to moderate content and the explosion of hate on Twitter, the banning of journalists on Twitter.”

Then he suggested ominously that Twitter and social media companies may not continue to enjoy “immunity from responsibility and liability.”

In other words, keep policing free speech as an arm of the federal government or watch your business go up in smoke.

You know that Adam Schiff is in panic mode.

Just look at him…

Luckily, nobody gives a ‘Schiff’ what he has to say.
