Congressional hearings on “extremist Internet content” mark a new stage in the McCarthyite witch hunt by Democrats, working with the intelligence agencies and MSM, to legitimize censorship.

Congressmen and senators goaded representatives of Google, Twitter and Facebook to admit that their platforms were used to sow “social divisions” and “extremist” political opinions. The claim is that social conflict within the United States arises not from the scale of social inequality in America, greater than in any other country in the developed world, but rather from the actions of “outside agitators” working in the service of the Kremlin.
