FCC Chairman Double Downs on Twitter "Discrimination" Censoring Pro-Life, Christian, Conservative Views: It's Not Fair or Right and Has to Change

"The company has a viewpoint and uses that viewpoint to discriminate." – Ajit Pai

Twitter strongly opposes Pai's plan to repeal the Obama-era "net neutrality" rules for a return to pre-2015 regulatory framework and has said it will fight the effort, a stance the FCC chair dubbed pretense.

"Now look," Pai said, "I love Twitter, and I use it all the time. But let's not kid ourselves; when it comes to an open Internet, Twitter is part of the problem."

"The company has a viewpoint," he added, "and uses that viewpoint to discriminate."

Pai offered an example of Twitter recently blocking a Senate campaign announcement ad for U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tennessee, "because it featured a pro-life message."

At a July event to protect net neutrality rules, Twitter had also warned users that a link to one company's statement on Internet regulation "may be unsafe," noted Pai.

"And, to say the least, the company appears to have a double standard when it comes to suspending or de-verifying conservative users' accounts as opposed to those of liberal users," Pai stated. "This conduct is many things, but it isn't fighting for an open Internet."

Pai made his comments at an Internet freedom symposium in Washington, DC, for free market think tank R Street Institute and the Lincoln Network tech freedom advocacy group.
