Bomberger: 'Big tech' acting un-American by blocking truth

Internet concept (http)The latest censorship by online platforms has resulted in a call to action for the public to get involved.

Facebook recently temporarily banned LifeSiteNews staff member Madeleine Jacob from posting on its platform over an article by Ryan Bomberger of the Radiance Foundation. The piece criticized actor Mario Lopez for backtracking over a remark critical of transgendering children.

In an interview with OneNewsNow, Bomberger says it's another example of liberal platforms censoring Christian and conservative views.

"Big tech's determining what is acceptable – and it has nothing to do with the truth; and we have to be able to fight back," he begins. "This censorship is not American and it's a terrifying thing to be able to have these big tech companies and their big bias silence truthful speech, free speech. The First Amendment applies to all of us."

Conservative and Christian organizations have complained about "big tech" censorship, but Bomberger says it's time for individuals to take a stand.

"If we're not outraged enough over the censorship, if we're not outraged enough over the suppression, if we're not outraged enough by being branded as speakers … and writers of hate – then Facebook will keep doing what it's going to do," he warns. "They have to feel the sting."

Bomberger is encouraging people to contact Facebook and express their concerns and, if necessary, stop using the platform in protest against its censorship.
