As part of the Gun Culture, I cannot help but laugh about the part of “publish the malicious lies.” We have been the target of lies, misinformation and ad-hominem attacks for the better part of 50 years and the only reason we not only survived but thrived was because this thing called the Internet came to be and we were able to counter the propaganda with rational discourse and displaying facts.
I guess they saw how effective their dogma was challenged and destroyed, so they need to have any opposing views filtered and throttled in the name of “safety” and feelings. What would be approved speech? Well, they will let you know, but rest assured theirs is already allowed to flow freely without consequences. Yours? We will let you know as soon as the council approved by us and selected from our people meets. In the meantime, we need you to shut up or better yet, we are restricting your access to the public forums.
Better safe than sorry, right?

We the People just need to go back to pre cell phone comms.. fax machines snail mail and land lines… or better yet- put a lantern in your window…

The correct response to dis/misinformation is information and transparency. Not censorship.
That would require their opinions, pravdas, and predictions stand against contrary facts. They cannot, so the weak-minded demand censorship.
If they banned the malicious lies of all maniacs, where would Sam Harris go to spew his venom?
Sam Harris, projection much?
