Sponsored This Heinous Bill…
HORRIFYING! Colorado Democrat Senator Plans To Fine Web Owners $5,000 PER DAY!
Leave it to a DEMOCRAT to introduce a Bill that would utterly shred our First Amendment rights. COLORADO DEMOCRAT Senator Kerry Donovan has introduced SB21-132 that will fine website owners $5,000 PER DAY if they do not register with the State so that the State can then investigate ALL OF A WEB OWNER’S CONTENT and (presumably) fine the web owners or jail them if “unapproved” content is shown on the website. WOW. Just wow.
Let’s see, I have 4 websites that question the fake news narrative, so if I lived in Colorado that would be $20,000 PER DAY if I refused to register with them so that they can vet every single message and post on my website that may be complained about.
You know, CA Democrat Senator Richard Pan tried to do something similar in 2018 with his SB-1424 “Online False Information” bill that fortunately was vetoed by the Governor (how did we dodge that bullet?).
These Democrats are SICK. SICK IN THE HEAD. Their souls are corrupted. They work for the Deep State, not We The People. Expect more and more attacks on anyone who dare questions the Democrats, their Deep State handlers and their disturbed agenda to force vaccinate and enslave every human on the planet. (And yes, RINOs are involved too, I know).
Pray Big and Fight Back.
BILL TEXT >>>
Digital Communications Regulation
Concerning the regulation of digital communications, and, in connection therewith, creating the digital communications division and the digital communications commission.
The bill creates the digital communications division (division) and the digital communications commission (commission) within the department of regulatory agencies. On an annual basis and for a reasonable fee determined by the commission, the division shall register digital communications platforms, which are certain communications-oriented online businesses, such as social media platforms or media-sharing platforms, that conduct business in Colorado or own or operate services that are offered to Colorado residents. A digital communications platform that fails to register with the division commits a class 2 misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $5,000 for each day that the violation continues.
The division shall investigate and the commission may hold hearings on claims filed with the division alleging that a digital communications platform has allowed a person to engage in one or more unfair or discriminatory digital communications practices on the platform, which practices:
• Include practices that promote hate speech; undermine election integrity; disseminate intentional disinformation, conspiracy theories, or fake news; or authorize, encourage, or carry out violations of users’ privacy; and
• May include business, political, or social practices that are conducted in a manner that a person aggrieved by the practices can demonstrate are unfair or discriminatory to the aggrieved person. Such practices, if done in an unfair or discriminatory manner, might include:
• Practices that target users for purposes of collecting and disseminating users’ personal data, including users’ sensitive data;
• Profiling users based on their personal data collected;
• Selling or authorizing others to use users’ personal data to provide location-based advertising or targeted advertising; or
• Using facial recognition software and other tracking technology.
If a person who files a complaint with the division exhausts all administrative remedies and proceedings, the person may file a civil action in district court alleging an unfair or discriminatory digital communications practice.
