On Tuesday, Florida State Rep. Randy Fine called on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to take massive action against several Big Tech companies in response to their disgusting attacks on free speech.
“Florida taxpayers should not be forced to do business with entities that censor them.” – said Fine.
Fine is urging DeSantis to divest state funds from key players in Big Tech including Apple, Facebook, Google and Twitter due to their attack on conservatives.
“I am deeply disturbed to see the country’s major technology companies use the actions of these few as a pretext to silence tens of millions of good, patriotic Americans, millions of whom live here in Florida,” Fine said in his letter to DeSantis.
“It is clear that Twitter and Facebook are engaged in one-sided viewpoint discrimination on targeting conservatives. These companies allow actual terrorists around the world to use their platforms to target America, Americans, and our allies, without as much as a peep..”
He continued, “And it is not disputed that Amazon, Apple and Google are actively working to eliminate any alternative outlets where conservatives can speak freely.”
Fine went on to state how he will be bringing forward legislation to ban state and local governments from conducting business with these tech powers.
“They may get to decide who they do business with. So do we,” he said.
