On Episode 61 of Stand and Deliver....Patrick and Bob discuss a potentially dangerous bill that blurs the lines between who is fighting for free speech in the federal government and who is opposed. The bill to ban TikTok, the viral sensation owned and controlled by the Chinese Communist Party, sounds like a good one on the surface, but is there language in the bill that would allow the government to suppress other "threats to national security" as the government may define it? Could the "RESTRICT" act dangerously expand the national security state? Also up for discussion, the IRS appears to be targeting independent journalist Matt Taibbi for his deep dive reporting on the ties between social media companies and Democrat politicians, putting all journalists on notice that their freedom of the press might have more limitations than they realize. We also discuss the "political economy" of free speech, as well as speech that is NOT protected by the First Amendment when it is used to threaten the lives of those with whom you disagree. All of this is on the table on the latest Stand and Deliver...so be sure to share this episode with like-minded Free Speech Defenders!
