Just when we thought the censorship couldn’t get any worse, in steps the FCC. Not only do they want Twitter, Google, Facebook, and Amazon to be in control of the things you can see, hear, or think, now they want to prevent you from sharing things by text message as well. This means not only are the Big Tech bros spying on you with their apps, but the phone companies themselves are doing the same.
Reuter’s reports: The Federal Communications Commission voted on Wednesday to clarify that wireless carriers have the authority to block unwanted or spam text messages, but Democrats warned the decision would allow carriers to block or censor texts that customers send.
The FCC voted 3-to-1 to classify text messages as an information service rather than a telecommunications service, which it said would have limited the ability of wireless carriers to combat robotexts and spam messages.
The FCC said text messages have become a trusted form of communication as wireless providers like AT&T Inc, Verizon Communications Inc and Sprint Corp successfully eliminated most spam texts. In 2017, 1.77 trillion text messages were exchanged in the United States.
FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said the commission’s decision would allow wireless providers “to continue taking action against unwanted text messages.”
But FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, a Democrat, said the vote means “you no longer have the final say on where your text messages go and what they said. That means your carrier now has the legal right to block your text messages and censor the very content of your messages.
Of course, this is music to the ears of the Biden administration and the authoritarian tyrants that populate the Democratic party. It wasn’t even a year ago that Democrats demanded Big Tech enact even more censorship to silence their ideological opponents. At a time when average Americans were outraged that Big Tech platforms colluded to shut down the Hunter Biden scandal Democrats went the opposite way. Banning the links to one of the biggest news sources in America (The NY Post) wasn’t enough for them and they called for a ramping up of oversight on what people said and shared on these platforms.
Fortunately for freedom-loving Americans there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. With the unsettling FCC vote having just passed, there’s an unlikely savior emerging in the tech arena; The world’s youngest Bitcoin millionaire and Silicon Valley sweetheart (though not for long) Erik Finman.
Erik saw what happened in the last election and vowed to “actually fix things” as his website says. He took the Democrats constant calls to “build your own” to heart and created the very first free-speech-first smart phone called the Freedom Phone. In his own words:
“The decision to remove President Donald Trump from all social media platforms was both shocking and outrageous. However, it should have crystallized in the minds of his supporters just how powerful the Big Tech monopoly is.
By purchasing the Freedom Phone, freedom-loving Americans everywhere can help lead the fight against the Big Tech monopoly by incorporating a product into their lives that is designed for them rather than the demands of the ever-changing progressive orthodoxy.”
We are setting aside a huge cut from all of our profits, to go towards election integrity efforts so the results of our elections are never called into question again.”
You know that he’s a dyed-in-the-wool Conservative, not only because he’s from Idaho, but because he’s donating money to election-integrity; something the Democrats absolutely hate. With the release of the phone he offered this video explaining how it can protect you from the constant barrage of insanity that the Left is throwing at anyone right of Lenin.
Today I'm announcing the Freedom Phone.
This is the first major pushback on the Big Tech companies that attacked us – for just thinking different.
Complete with it's own Uncensorable App Store & Privacy Features.

The launch of this new phone couldn’t come a moment too soon, and it seems to have Big Tech shaking in their shoes. If one of their own darlings could recognize them for what they are, how many more will follow? And if someone with unshakeable Conservative values and some cash can make a product that won’t spy, censor, and cancel the user, how long until they’re rendered obsolete? I know for my money, the Freedom Phone is what I’ll be switching to. So long Apple, Google, and Amazon. Hello Freedom. We missed you.
