Sen. Hawley at Social Media Summit: 'Quit Discriminating Against Conservatives'



Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MI) spoke at Thursday’s social media summit at the White House, and he was not happy.

“The media says… ‘Oh, there’s no censorship in social media. That’s all made up, that’s all fake.’ You and I know that that’s not true,” Hawley said, continuing, “The social media giants would love to shut us down, they would love to shut us up… and we can’t let them.”

Hawley then went on to attack the benefits social media giants receive from the government, saying these companies are “treated unlike anybody else.”

“If they wanna keep their special deal — here’s the bargain — they have to quit discriminating against conservatives,” Hawley continued, concluding: “They ought to abide by the same principles of free speech and the First Amendment that this country embraces— that we love and call our own.”
