Some days ago, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter places a temporal ban on President TRUMP’S social media handles, claimed that Trump posts incited his followers to violence.
In fact Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced via his platform that Donald Trump will be blocked from using both Facebook and Instagram “for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.” Says the ban is extended “indefinitely,” at least until Biden takes over as president.
I noticed that some of us Nigerians are happy that the social media handles of a sitting president of the United States was restricted. Ómó don’t be too excited about this. I dey see danger looming.
Don’t get blinded by your hatred for Donald Trump that you no longer understand what’s happening around you. Yeah Trump talks and post too much, but that is not the issue on ground now. Besides, it is his constitutional rights to express himself. We all have same rights to do so.
It is absolutely wrong and terrifying for tech companies such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to censor a sitting President of the United States and get away with it. This simply means, they can do it with anyone else and nothing will happen. It means that the FGN social media bill will surely come to pass soon.
This agenda is going to affect we Nigerians the most. If the media doesn’t like you or agree with you, they shut you down and remove your right to free speech. The media controls what you hear, know, and ultimately, think. “So this is how liberty dies, with thunderous applause?”
The tech companies such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are slowly stripping people of their constitutional rights. Funny enough, some people are participating in their own destruction and loss of freedom unknowingly – it is pure ignorance!
We have no idea what is happening right before our eyes as our freedoms are slowly being taken away. One day, we will wake up and wonder how it all happened, but then it’s too late.
When they can take away the freedom of speech from the President of the United States, then who are you? Your loss of freedoms are not far behind. Let that sink in.
THINK ABOUT IT!
