FIGHT CENSORSHIP STANDOUT
The Massachusetts Republican Party’s anti-censorship campaign keeps moving forward, with a roadside standout aimed at raising public awareness about the alarming trend of conservative and right-leaning speech being censored in the online public square scheduled for Sunday at noon at The Calvin Coolidge Memorial Bridge on Route 9 in Northampton.
We’re beginning to roll out this campaign at a time when social media technology giants are increasingly working to stifle free speech, MassGOP Chairman Jim Lyons said. Just this past fall, we saw how bad it can get, when Facebook and Twitter led a media blackout of the Hunter Biden laptop story.
Other instances saw alternative social media sites being taken offline by Amazon Web Services, with their apps removed by both Apple and Google, and even the permanent banning from social media of former President Donald Trump.
The list of examples keeps getting longer and longer, and it’s past time we did something about it,” said Chris Ryan, Chairman, a TRUMP Republican who helped create the Western Massachusetts GOP Patriots PAC, is leading Sunday’s standout event. “Our hope is to raise enough awareness that no matter your political persuasions, we can all agree that censorship is bad, and Congress should do something to address it.
Sunday’s standout at The Calvin Coolidge Memorial Bridge on Route 9 is scheduled to begin at 12 p.m. and end at 2 p.m.
Signs will be provided to all PATRIOTS at the Standout. Feel free to bring any and all signs that you have (Trump, American Flag, etc.).
At 2:30 pm, all patriots are welcome to celebrate at the Hadley Young Men’s Club at 138 East St, Hadley, MA 01035.
