National Rifle Association (NRA) spokesperson Dana Loesch on Thursday suggested that the federal government should regulate Twitter because conservatives are allegedly being banned from the social media platform.
Loesch made the remarks during an appearance on Fox & Friends.
“This is ultimately the thing that separates Twitter and Facebook and these other platforms from being considered publishers,” Loesch explained. “And with that, having all of the liability that publishers have.”
Loesch argued that Twitter was injecting “political bias” into its business decisions.
“I have to say, these social media platforms — I’m a small government person, I don’t want the government to regulate things,” she continued. “However, they are not helping themselves at all with their behavior and the way that they’re answering some of the questions.”
Fox News host Steve Doocy noted that the federal government exempted social media from being treated as publishers “to help grow the Internet.”
“And now the Internet is gigantic and they’ve got to figure out how to regulate it,” he insisted.
“Yeah, exactly,” Loesch agreed.

‘Tempting fate and asking for trouble’: Dr. Fauci rips Ozark pool partiers for blowing off pandemic safety
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, slammed the large crowds that gathered for a now-infamous pool party in Missouri over the weekend for blowing off social distancing guidelines.
During an interview with CNN's Jim Sciutto, Fauci was asked what he made of the people who were captured on video partying without keeping any distance or wearing any face masks.
"When you have situations in which you see that type of crowding, with no masks and people interacting, that's not prudent and that's inviting a situation that could get out of control," Fauci said. "So I keep -- when I get an opportunity to plead with people, understanding you do want to gradually do this, but don't start leapfrogging over the recommendations and guidelines because that's tempting fate and asking for trouble."
Your election angst is real: Trump’s gonna cheat and it could be total hell
Even though it was a comedy sketch, that line has been thrown in Democrats' faces ever since as an example of their arrogant elitism and failure to understand Real America. Don't you know that the average voter wants a president they can have a beer with, not some egghead know-it-all?
