(Natural News) Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry is set to call upon AG Jeff Sessions to break up the Big Tech monopoly. Will Silicon Valley’s stronghold on the internet finally come to an end? If AG Landry has any say, it seems like that may just be the case. In a recent interview with News Radio 710 Keel, in Shreveport, Landry commented, “My opinion is you are not going to fix this legislatively. You are going to have fix this like we always fix monopolies in this country. You are going to have to take an antitrust suit.”
“I think it’s an antitrust issue. I think the companies are too big and they need to be broken up,” he added.
Multiple legislators and other government officials have expressed similar concerns. Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) reportedly agrees with Landry, stating, “I agree that the Department of Justice should look at this issue. I’m a free market, private sector guy, but Facebook and Google aren’t companies. They’re countries.”
As Breitbart reports further, both President Trump and his 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale have publicly criticized Big Tech for an array of issues, ranging from their Big Brother-esque attack on free speech to their overt political bias.
Will the Trump administration take on Big Tech?
President Trump has been lambasting companies like Google and Facebook for their egregious and overbearing attacks on freedom of speech, particularly their censorship of conservatives.
In August, the President stated, “I think that Google and Twitter and Facebook, they are really treading on very, very troubled territory and they have to be careful. It is not fair to large portions of the population.”
In another statement, Trump accused Big Tech of “silencing millions of people.”
“With respect to Google and Twitter and Facebook there is a big difference. And in fact I hear that they are holding hearings in Congress over the next couple of weeks and I think it’s a very serious problem because they are really trying to silence a very large part of this country and those people don’t want to be silenced. It’s not right. It’s not fair. It may not be legal. But, we’ll see. We just want fairness,” President Trump reportedly commented in late August.
Trump and his administration have given Big Tech plenty of warnings. Brad Parscale, Trump’s 2020 campaign manager, went so far as to call Big Tech a “direct threat to a free society,” and stated that Google is “arguable the worst offender.”
Big Tech means Big Censorship
Silicon Valley is known for its cult-like corporate culture but it’s become increasingly clear that tech companies are trying to get everyone to drink their Left-wing Kool-aid, not just their employees. Whether its plotting out new ways to thwart conservative politicians looking to take a stand against liberal intolerance and tyranny, or blocking free speech with haphazard “community guidelines,” tech industries across the board are using their platforms to push leftist ideals and stamp out any and all political dissidence.
Censorship is unfortunately alive and well in the United States — and Big Tech is leading the path to a full-blown police state.
Facebook has come under fire for censoring conservative political campaign ads that criticized communism and pro-life baby pictures, as well as banning popular figures like Alex Jones. But Google surely takes the cake, with reports of the tech giant’s active suppression of natural health information, and their recently revealed plot to influence future elections to ensure “better quality governance.”
Shocking video footage of a Google all-hands meeting showed just how extreme Google’s anti-Trump bias is, and just how little tolerance the company has for the only kind of diversity that matters: Diversity of thought.
