Just over half of all Americans want free speech on social media, but a majority of Democrats want content offensive to “some people” to be censored, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll released Monday.
The survey found that 51% of American adults believe social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter should “allow free speech without interference,” down from 61% in 2018. More people believe social media companies should “regulate what is posted to make sure some people are not offended” than in 2018 at 23% versus 35%.
The poll of 1,000 American adults from Jan. 4-5, 2022, found that among Democrats, censorship more than doubled over four years. CNSNews reported that 25% of Democrats in Jan. 2018 expressed a desire for social media speech restrictions compared to 57% in Jan. 2022.
The wealthier a person is, the more likely he or she is to support censorship. Of people earning less than $30,000 annually, 27% support censorship, compared to 52% of people earning more than $200,000 a year, CNSNews stated.
Additionally, 44% of government employees state that they want to restrict speech online, making them more likely than respondents in other occupations to support censorship.
One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
