Representative Matt Gaetz has proven once again this level of irresponsibility especially in these times where we get so many bad acts.
Matt Gaetz continued his irresponsibility
Matt Gaetz is coming close to becoming an accessory to the next insurrection. He claims the second amendment has nothing to do with guns for hunting. Instead, he made it clear he believes it is for the purpose of rebellion against the government.
Vanity Fair reported it as follows.
A frequent refrain that Republicans love to drone on about is how social media networks supposedly suppress conservative voices. The problem with that complaint, though, is that it’s not actually true at all. For instance, on virtually any given day on Facebook, i.e. the biggest social media platform in the world, the top-performing posts are from conservatives, and very often they have a lock on the top 10. But setting aside the actual reality of the situation, let’s pretend for a moment that these private companies did have a bias against right-wing viewpoints. Some might say the appropriate recourse would be to protest against them and then…get on with one’s life? Or protest them ad nauseam! Of course, when we say protest, we mean with words and perhaps even petitions, and not by going out and shooting a bunch of Silicon Valley executives, as Rep. Matt Gaetz seemingly suggested on Thursday night.
Speaking at an “America First” rally in Georgia, the Florida Republican lawmaker told the crowd assembled that they “have an obligation” to take up arms against tech companies, one day after yet another mass shooting occurred in the U.S. “The internet’s hall monitors out in Silicon Valley, they think they can suppress us, discourage us. Maybe if you’re just a little less patriotic, maybe if you just conform to their way of thinking a little more, then you’ll be allowed to participate in the digital world,” Gaetz told the crowd. “Well, you know what? Silicon Valley can’t cancel this movement, or this rally, or this congressman. We have a Second Amendment in this country, and I think we have an obligation to use it.” He then went on to define the Second Amendment as giving citizens “the ability to maintain an armed rebellion against the government of the United States, if that becomes necessary.”
The man is a clear and present danger.
