Democratic Gov. Katie Hobbs of Arizona has found herself in hot water after demanding that Twitter censor users who criticized her anti-Trump posts. It seems that Hobbs has a long history of comparing Trump and his supporters to Nazis. Back in 2017, while serving in the Arizona state legislature, she attacked Trump’s supporters, likening them to neo-Nazis. This is just another example of Democrats resorting to inflammatory rhetoric instead of engaging in substantive debate.
Hobbs’ request for Twitter to take action against “alt-right” critics is deeply concerning. It is clear that she is trying to silence anyone who disagrees with her politically. This is a blatant violation of the First Amendment rights of these users. How can we trust a governor who uses her power to censor and manipulate Americans for her own benefit?
The revelation of Hobbs’ emails comes at a time when the federal government is already facing scrutiny for suppressing Americans’ First Amendment rights. It seems that Democrats are willing to do whatever it takes to silence conservative voices and control the narrative. It is alarming to think that our elected officials believe they have the authority to dictate what can and cannot be said on social media platforms.

This is not an isolated incident. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has also come under fire for working with big tech companies to censor posts that do not align with the Left’s agenda. This is a dangerous precedent that sets the stage for even more censorship in the future. Americans should be able to express their opinions freely without fear of retribution from their own government.
It is clear that the Democratic Party is more interested in silencing conservatives than engaging in open and honest debate. This is not how a democracy should function. We must stand up for our First Amendment rights and demand that our elected officials respect the freedom of speech for all Americans, regardless of their political beliefs.
