Donald Trump, in a fiery speech, announced a free speech policy platform for his 2024 campaign that seeks to ‘dismantle and destroy’ left-wing censorship.
Trump is launching the effort in part due to recent revelations provided by Elon Musk’s ‘Twitter Files’ internal document drop.
As Musk himself stated, “The rules were enforced against the right, but not against the left.”
In a speech posted midday Thursday, Trump came out swinging.
“If we don’t have free speech, then we just don’t have a free country,” he said. “It’s as simple as that.”
He proceeded to explain that if the right to free speech is eradicated in America, all other rights will soon follow.
“If this most fundamental right is allowed to perish, then the rest of our rights and liberties will topple,” Trump explained. “Just like dominos, one by one.”

Trump Announces Free Speech Plan
Trump proceeded to lay out a series of platforms to “shatter the left-wing censorship regime” and to “reclaim the right to free speech for all Americans.”
And he says he will implement these policies within hours of his inauguration, should he win the presidency in 2024.
“I will sign an executive order banning any federal department or agency from colluding with any organization, business, or person, to censor, limit, categorize, or impede the lawful speech of American citizens,” he declared.
Wow! I absolutely love President Trump’s policy platform to restore free speech.

“I will then ban federal money from being used to label domestic speech as ‘mis-‘ or ‘dis-information,'” Trump added.
Such a move is key, as that is the loophole Democrats have used to quell facts they find inconvenient.
Democrats declare something to be misinformation, left-wing “fact checkers” nod in approval, the media reports it as fake news, and the social media giants censor it. Rinse and repeat.
This has applied to both the Hunter Biden scandal and COVID information. It likely went much deeper than that.
Without free speech, we don’t have a free country.
On day one, President Donald J. Trump will stop federal agencies from censoring, limiting, categorizing, or impeding the free speech of Americans

The Censorship Cartel Must Be Destroyed
Trump also went on to suggest he would ‘drain the swamp’ of government officials who are found to be collaborating with Big Tech to censor any Americans, no matter their level of involvement.
Trump asserted he “will begin the process of identifying and firing every federal bureaucrat who has engaged in domestic censorship — directly or indirectly.”
As a convenient reference, the Republican candidate’s son tweeted out a summary of the platforms Trump is running on.

Trump referenced the ‘Twitter Files’ saga, which he called “bombshell reports,” and accused a “sinister group of deep state bureaucrats, Silicon Valley tyrants, left-wing activists, and depraved corporate news media” of “conspiring to manipulate and silence the American people.”
Of that, there can be no doubt. Most people suspected these things were happening behind the scenes, but now it has been laid out right before our eyes.

“They have collaborated to suppress vital information on everything from elections to public health,” Trump remarked. “The censorship cartel must be dismantled and destroyed and it must happen immediately.”
Musk’s effort at transparency on his platform is a good start. But there is little doubt that what is being revealed as having taken place at Twitter is still – to this day – happening at places like Facebook, YouTube, Google, etc.
Who is going to step up and stop those companies from censoring conservatives before the 2024 election?
