Texas wants to stop social networks from censoring “points of views”
Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed a law for the state that prevents social media companies from banning or restricting people based on their “points of view”, whether they have been shared on digital platforms or not.
Abbott justified this bill by accusing social networks of censoring movements and personalities from the most conservative political wing in the US. “Freedom of expression is under attack in Texas,” he begins by declaring the governor in a video shared via Facebook (below).
“There is a dangerous move by some social media companies to silence conservative ideas and values. This is wrong and we will not allow it in Texas,” said Abbott.
