Look for Trump to try and get that going over here. He has already wanted names of Facebook activists and those who write things about him. Well, why not? The UK has "hate speech" laws and we are fast going there. Facebook says it will not comply but they recently went in with a GOP right wing fact checking organization. Since when did the GOP fact check anything? Currently Facebook has two faces about American politics and it depends on which side you are on as to which face you see. I suppose that is considered normal when you are selling information. I was censored in FB once along these lines for "bullying" a man who came out of thin air to post on my page.
In free speech you have a right to diss your government and that includes those who run it. More today than ever they appear to not care at all for the citizens.
Don't think it won't happen here eventually.
Especially if 45 were to get his way.
He'd do away with the First Amendment (as well as the rest of the Constitution)
in a heartbeat if he could.
He's already got people working on changing the libel laws.
Yet another reason why he must be removed.
we can't do anything for russia right now; we have a president who admires this sort of behavior and would like to try it on us too. let's use the ballot box to elect a president (and a senate) who will bring america back to being a democracy and put sanctions on countries like russia who jail dissidents.
