Kari Lake Responds to Arizona Senator Inquiring For Social Media Censorship to Deter Bank Runs


Democrats love censorship and hate the free flow of information.

They have a never-ending battle against the 1st amendment.

The banking calamity caused by Silicon Valley Bank’s collapse provided another example of that.

On Sunday, Rep. Thomas Massie said a Democrat Senator asked if there was a program to censor information on social media that could lead to a run on the banks.

Journalist Michael Shellenberger reported that Senator Mark Kelly (D-AZ) was the individual who inquired about censoring Americans on social media.

The War On ‘Financial Misinformation’ Is Here

From Public:

During a conference call about the Silicon Valley Bank bailout yesterday, Senator Mark Kelly (D-AZ) asked representatives from the Federal Reserve, Treasury Department, and the Federal Deposit and Insurance Corporation (FDIC) if they had a way to censor information on social media to prevent a run on the banks, according to Republican members of the House of Representatives who were on the call.

The members said there were roughly 200 people on the Zoom call, including Senators, House members, and staff members from both parties. “On our conference call, led by [Senate President Chuck] Schumer, with Fed, FDIC, and Treasury, a democrat senator asked the three agencies if there was a program underway on social media to censor information that would lead to a bank run,” Rep. Thomas Massie told Public.

“I believe he couched it in a concern that foreign actors would be doing this,” said Massie, “but he didn’t suggest the censorship should be limited to foreigners or to things that were untrue. The people from the three agencies couldn’t answer him and just sort of took a pass on the question.”

Calls both to Sen. Mark Kelly’s Arizona and Washington D.C. offices were not answered.

Kari Lake responded and called out the Democrats' insatiable desire to strip away the inalienable rights of Americans.

"Let me get this straight," Lake began.

"The globalist elites in the banking industry dove head first off the fiscal cliff & @SenMarkKelly's solution was to censor people from talking about it?"

"Why is the Democrat answer to everything always stripping away our rights?" she asked.
