Constitutional scholar and conservative pundit Mark Levin said Wednesday that “fascistic” House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has destroyed one American institution, tried to destroy another – and now has her sights set on a third.
Levin listed Pelosi’s three targets in a Wednesday night tweet, declaring that “Fascistic Nancy” “Destroyed the House of Representatives,” “Sought to destroy the presidency,” and “Seeks to destroy tech neutrality.”
As evidence of Pelosi’s efforts to “destroy tech neutrality,” Levin embedded a Mediaite tweet titled: “‘A Disgrace’: Nancy Pelosi Slams Mark Zuckerberg,” which links to an article reporting Pelosi’s attack on the Facebook CEO for disagreeing with Twitter’s effort to refute one of President Donald Trump’s tweets:
“As far as the platforms are concerned, they want two things from the federal government, no regulation and no taxes,” Pelosi said in an interview on MSNBC. “So they cater to the Trump administration all the time. I think Mark Zuckerberg’s statement was a disgrace.”
Pelosi was responding to a Wednesday interview in which Zuckerberg said he disagreed with a decision by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to “fact check” one of President Donald Trump‘s tweets on vote-by-mail balloting. “We have a different policy than Twitter on this. I just believe strongly that Facebook shouldn’t be the arbiter of truth of everything that people say online,” Zuckerberg said. “I think in general, private companies probably shouldn’t be — especially these platform companies — shouldn’t be in the position of doing that.”
Mediaite notes that, while she did criticize Twitter, Pelosi’s only complaint was that Twitter doesn’t censor Pres. Trump enough:
“Twitter, they’re not taking off any accusations the president is making about Joe Scarborough,” Pelosi said. “They do a token thing and think it’s okay.”
