***David Burg for Congress Statement***
(Howell, New Jersey) TUESDAY, JANUARY 4, 2022 – Burg for Congress, Republican Candidate for Congress in New Jersey’s 4th Congressional District, took to social media to highlight sitting Congressman Chris Smith’s mirrored Twitter actions restricting Congresswoman Majorie Taylor Greene.Endorsed by U.S. Term Limits David Burg for Congress is a Business Litigation Attorney and is slamming the acts of censorship against Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Burg stated….”As an attorney who has litigated First Amendment cases, I am appalled at this continuing unconstitutional silencing of American voices. The First Amendment applies to all of us – not just woke Democrats. The next Congress must address the issue of Big Tech silencing Americans by breaking up their monopolies and declaring social platforms a public domain.
Whether you agree with her or not, Marjorie Taylor Greene has as much right to express her views as do the owners of Twitter. These huge monoliths cannot be allowed to grow to such dominance hosting our social and political discourse – and then collude with their Democrat allies to deprive Americans holding difference views of their fundamental First Amendment rights
Nor should we be surprised that our censorious Big Tech autocrats once again have used fraudulent claims of “misinformation” to de-platform an American who was duly elected by her constituents to represent them in Congress. That’s just too much good, old-fashioned American freedom for these fascists to swallow.
For the Left, “misinformation” means one thing only: Information that conflicts with their radical ideology. As the great Dennis Prager often observes, truth is not a value of the Left. Power and control are.
Nor is it surprising that these lords of industry again have colluded with their Democrat political allies to use the enormous power of their industry against their ideological opponents. Has there even been such a transparently disgraceful example of mutual back-scratching in the history of our country?
Whether you agree with her or not, Marjorie Taylor Greene has as much right to express her views as do the owners of Twitter – which should be regulated as a common carrier to require content neutrality on its platform. Perhaps companies like Twitter, Facebook, Google, etc. are victims of their own success. But they cannot grow to such dominance hosting our social and political discourse – and then collude with their state-actor allies in one political party to deprive Americans of their fundamental First Amendment rights.
If the 2020 election taught us any one thing it should have been that.
I have no stronger motivation and commitment in running for Congress than to unite with a strong America First Republican majority to preserve, protect, and defend the fundamental, God-given rights of all Americans under our First and Second Amendments. Reigning in Big Tech and reopening our internet to free and open debate will be an important step in that direction,” concluded Burg.
