Democrats want to fact-check your cell phone text messages


Conservative TreehouseYes, you read that correctly. Fact checking your SMS text messages through your carrier, your cell phone or internet provider.

This is a rather remarkable escalation in totalitarian censorship instruction. Not only will Big Tech social media networks (Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter) censor, delete, and look into any content placed in their “private sector” domain, but the implication is now that AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, T-Mobile etc. etc. will deploy monitors and fact-checkers to control what you are allowed to say in text messages to your friends and family.

I think this is a significant escalation from fact-checking public posts on social media, and even from doing that in direct/private messages on social media platforms. Cell phone messaging predates most of the internet services messaging capabilities and is generally viewed as significantly more private. If this is implemented, suddenly the Democrats will be inserting themselves into the private conversations of many older and less technically sophisticated Americans who did not previously feel personally impacted by spying and censorship.

I think this will backfire dramatically.
