As Twitchy reported, the CEOs of Facebook, Twitter, and Google testified before the Senate Wednesday, and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey did not impress the Republicans in the room. Sen. Ted Cruz asked Dorsey, “Who the hell elected you and put you in charge of what the media are allowed to report and what the American people are allowed to hear?” And Sen. Mike Lee stumped Dorsey and Zuckerberg by asking them to name one high-profile liberal who’d been censored on their platforms.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw had his own thoughts to share on the hearing:
Biggest take away from the big tech hearings:
1) Jack Dorsey is a partisan and a hypocrite.
2) There are no liberals left in the Democrat Party. Not a single Democrat Senator defended free speech or freedom of the press today.
This should terrify Americans.

The first point we already knew, but the second is frightening. Where were the Democrats?
It absolutely does.

Yes, I found that disappointing and very disturbing ! What’s going on?

Indeed. It worries me a lot. I never thought the erosion if freedom would happen so quickly.

I’m terrified at the Americans that don’t even care. What makes them think they won’t come for their free speech etc next.

As a 51 year old US Army veteran, I grew up and entered the army during the cold war, served through many periods of unrest and war, saw our country shift and change many times, and yet I'm more scared now that I've ever been.

“We are working on it” is no longer an acceptable answer.

This has been happening for some time. They're just not hiding it anymore.

I'm glad you're keeping your eye on this.

It terrifies anyone who's
1. Paying attention
2. Able to draw events forward to their logical conclusion
The rest are cheering it on.
They'll cheer it on right up until it comes for them, then they'll be shocked and won't understand how it happened.
