As a civilian or elected official, facts don’t lie, and previous statements carry much weight when determining a position. In this case, President Joe Biden’s FCC nominee is making plenty of excuses for her earlier comments about wanting to censor conservative voices.
Gigi Sohn would be in charge of who gets to have a media voice and who doesn’t, but her previous tweets have disqualified her for the position.
In October 2020, less than a year and a half ago, Sohn tweeted:
If Sohn is confirmed, there’s no doubt that Fox News will have that hearing. A radical liberal who doesn’t believe in free speech should never be in a position of censorship.
Senator Dan Sullivan (R-AK) said in a hearing, “I don’t know where to begin,” and added, “We’re not nominating you for any normal assistant secretary. You’re going to be an FCC commissioner with enormous power, particularly as it relates to free speech, particularly as it relates to liberty in our country.”
Sullivan added, “I don’t see how you can be unbiased,” which is correct.
Using a position at the top of the FCC would allow the Democrat party to overthrow the entire media. Not only that but movies and television shows would be censored and canceled in the hands of the wrong person. Weaponizing a political position to destroy opposition is the very definition of an insurrection.
Sohn had also previously retweeted:
Sohn denied knowing the tweet.
To that, Sullivan said, “I think the average American, whether you’re Republican or Democrat, is tired of this. The number of Biden nominees who come out here and have tweeted about Republicans being white supremacists and racists seems like that’s how you get nominated in this administration. People are just tired of it.”
Sohn said that her previous tweets were “made in my role as a public interest advocate.”
Does Sohn want anyone to think that her opinion will change as soon as she’s confirmed? Sohn isn’t changing her views, and nobody should believe she will. Democrats are attempting to control the narrative and ensure that censorship in the United States is legislated to do whatever they want to before the 2022 midterm election. They know if they don’t, there’s nothing that will stop a complete conservative wave that will render Biden’s administration useless in the legislative branch of government.
