His coffee in hand, Senator Ted Cruz walked down the halls at CPAC as I asked him if he would have a meeting with me to discuss Big Tech Censorship and election interference.
He made glancing eye contact, then Ted Cruz turned his back on me to give his attention to an onlooker — the fastest way he could avoid me without sprinting away like AOC did when I confronted her.
That’s what I’ve come to expect from “big” politicians who talk a huge game, but when it comes to taking action against Big Tech, they pretend this issue doesn’t exist.
Thankfully, there are other leaders who do listen.
They do care.
They do act.
One of those is Representative Jim Jordan who DIDN’T turn his back on me this past weekend.
Rep. Jordan and I had a good conversation for which I’m grateful.
And get this . . . when Rep. Jordan returned to Washington on Monday after speaking to me on Sunday, he drafted a letter to the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee to request a full committee hearing on Cancel Culture!
Here’s a few excerpts from the letter he wrote after our meeting:
“The wave of cancel culture spreading the nation is a serious threat to fundamental free speech rights in the United States.
“College campuses have canceled lectures . . . An editor for America’s newspaper of record was forced to resign . . . Amazon has refused to sell books reflecting certain political views, and Twitter and Facebook have censored and de-platformed prominent conservatives – including the sitting President of the United States.
“Cancel culture is a dangerous phenomenon whether you agree or disagree with the views being censored.”
Rep. Jordan is absolutely right!
And it will take all of us pushing this issue on a daily basis to enact change.
While we’ll have backs turned on us by the Ted Cruz’s of Washington, if we persist, we’ll get in front of a Jim Jordan who will join our fight.
If you haven’t already done so, help me stop Cancel Culture and continue to hold both Big Tech and Washington accountable.
Thanks again for all that you do.
