Ed Gehringer signed Grassfire's "Stop Social Media Censorship!" Petition 2020-10-16 22:53:11 -0400Section 230 made eminent sense in 1996, when algorithms for classifying text were too slow to apply to the amount of material being uploaded. It has now outlived its usefulness. Natural language processing is capable of screening most text, and presenting borderline cases to human reviewers. It is no longer necessary to shield online services for responsibility for the content they host.
Sign The National Petition Demanding Senators "Stop Social Media Censorship!"
Big Tech continues CENSORING content it doesn't like, agree with or that runs contrary to their social, cultural and political worldview. Most often -- and almost exclusively -- the news, information and media being banned is conservative and pro-Trump.
Less than three weeks before the presidential election, the Silicon Valley "elites" at Twitter and Facebook blocked a New York Post bombshell that slammed Hunter Biden, the son of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden. Presumably, because the story reflected poorly on Big Tech's favored candidate, Facebook announced "(W)e are reducing its distribution on our platform."
Twitter suspended the account of the New York Post -- America's fourth-largest newspaper -- for posting the article. Also, Twitter users were blocked from sharing it or locked out for trying to re-tweet it. To his credit, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey later said his company's actions were "unacceptable." But by then, Big Tech had -- once again -- revealed their bias against conservatives, while possibly engaging in ELECTION INTERFERENCE!
In response to the social-media giants' completely unacceptable double standard, Grassfire invites you, your family members and your friends to sign the national "Stop Social Media Censorship!" petition. Stand with thousands of American patriots calling on Twitter and Facebook to stop banning, blocking and flagging conservative content.
When Grassfire reaches 10,000 "Stop Social Media Censorship!" signers, we'll deliver your petition to key Senators on Capitol Hill. Please add your name below.
The petition states:3,019 signatures
I'm tired of Big Tech's unacceptable double standard of censoring conservatives and the content they post on social media. Twitter, Facebook and other Silicon Valley "elites" MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE for possible ELECTION INTERFERENCE and for creating an uneven "playing field" that favors their preferred candidate, agenda or point of view. I'm counting on you, a duly elected member of Congress, to protect the rights of every American AND the integrity of our elections by taking bold, immediate action. Thank you, in advance, for your patriotic support.

Sign The National "Censure Schumer!" Petition NOW!
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) may have thought he was simply delivering an "applause line" in front of a "friendly" crowd of abortion supporters on the front steps of the Supreme Court of the United States on March 4, 2020. But, in fact, it was a totally inappropriate threat against two excellent and esteemed jurists: Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
"I want to tell you Gorsuch, I want to tell you Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind," Sen. Schumer yelled. "And you will pay the price! You won't know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions."
As a direct response to Schumer's hateful rhetoric, Grassfire is empowering our team members to call on Congress for the immediate censure of the Senior Senator from New York. His totally inappropriate verbal attack against the judicial branch, which exists to protect the rights of EVERY AMERICAN, demands a retraction, full apology AND his immediate resignation.13,033 signatures
The "Censure Schumer!" Petition States:
I'm calling on members of Congress to censure Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) for his appalling threats against two highly esteemed jurists for the Supreme Court of the United States: Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. In fact, I think the Senior Senator from New York should resign immediately for his offensive, inappropriate verbal attack on members of the judicial branch.
Americans are tired of the hateful rhetoric that has infected Congress and its so-called "leaders." The fact that it came out of the mouth of the highest-ranking Democrat in the United States Senate is especially troubling. The Senate Minority Leader knows better and should immediately retract his awful, threatening statements, personally apologize to the Justices and resign from the Senate. Please respond to this petition by taking swift action to censure Mr. Schumer and see him removed from office.
Simply add your name to the national "Censure Schumer!" Petition below. Grassfire representatives will hand-deliver your petition to Congress, as soon as Grassfire reaches the important 20,000-signature plateau.

Democrats are pushing a very dangerous bill -- wrongly named the "Equality Act" -- that pushes a radical LGBT agenda and effectively criminalizes Christianity. The bill does not exempt church, religious organizations, or Christian schools and specifically forbids raising a religious free exercise claim as a defense against it.
This bill is not about "equality." It is about stripping away religious liberties and putting people of faith on the wrong side of the law!
++Urgent Action: Sign Petition and say NO to the anti-faith Equality Act!
Grassfire has created this national petition to give citizens a way to express their concern with the Equality Act. Simply complete the form below to add your name.
UPDATE: House Democrats are accelerating the time frame of the Equality Act! Please sign today! After you sign, please also consider taking action to FAX Congress and share this campaign with your friends.

I oppose the wrongly-named "Equality Act" -- a very dangerous bill that pushes a radical LGBT agenda while essentially criminalizing Christian beliefs. This bill would strip away religious liberties and put people of faith on the wrong side of the law. It also would force our churches and Christian businesses and schools to conform to the radical LGBT agenda. I urge you to oppose the so-called Equality Act.
The anti-Trump Left is leveraging the Kavanaugh confirmation to push for a "day of reckoning" against any candidate who dares to stand for President Trump's pro-America agenda. The most insidious tactic is the underlying effort to bully and intimidate "Make America Great Again" (MAGA) Voters into silence through open harassment of those who support the President's agenda.
Stand and be counted as a "MAGA Voter" for the mid-terms
