I am not a cowardly man but I readily admit I would stop and think about it three or four times before taking them on and even then I would do so with minimum confidence.
But that didn’t seem to bother Rep Hank Johnson, the man who was afraid that Guam would tip over and drown it’s occupants as if the island were a canoe. He decided to go toe to toe with Diamond and Silk and it ended up with their toes to his face. Fortunately, the congressman is too stupid to know they just ate his lunch.
It’s like the dyslexic baseball player who ran off the field cheering because he thought his team won when in reality they lost 23-1. Johnson probably thinks he won the battle which makes him a minority of one.
As reported by CBS News:
Vocal Trump supporters and social media personalities and sisters Diamond and Silk — whose real names are Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson — testified under oath before lawmakers on the House Judiciary Committee Thursday, in a hearing about the alleged filtering practices of social media platforms that quickly descended into impassioned and inconsistent statements.
“Facebook censored our free speech!” Diamond declared loudly at one point.
Throughout most of the hearing, Republicans prompted Diamond and Silk to explain how they believe Facebook censored and victimized them, while Democrats pointed out inconsistencies in their testimony and wondered why they were even holding the hearing in the first place.
“This is a stupid and ridiculous hearing,” Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., said, noting that the First Amendment is about protecting free speech against government intervention, not ensuring individual free speech from businesses.
“Whey are we having a hearing about regulating content?” Lieu said. “It’s unconstitutional to begin with.”
The focus of the hearing was supposed to be what metrics social media platforms use to filter content, while the social media stars accuse Facebook and others of censoring their content and diminishing its reach. The duo have previously claimed unfair censorship after Facebook reportedly deemed their content to be “unsafe to the community” and blocked their page.
