This Democrat Senator Wants to Censor Social Media to Prevent Bank Runs

It’s all hands on deck in Washington, DC right now, following the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank last Friday. In a conference call between lawmakers the Treasury Department, the FDIC, and the Federal Reserve, one Senator, in particular, was interested in protecting the banks from the American people. Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) is asking the government to censor Americans on social media so that we cannot warn each other if a bank is about to collapse.

Kelly ran as a moderate in his 2022 reelection campaign, but he is turning out to be one of the most radical leftists in the US Senate. (Congrats, Arizona! You elected someone worse than Elizabeth Warren!) Kelly explicitly called for the government agencies to censor Americans on social media to prevent bank runs.

Most Americans are living paycheck to paycheck right now in the Biden economy. Kelly’s main concern on the call, according to Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), was ensuring that there’s not a bank run because we pesky little people are able to communicate with each other on social media.

Massie says that everyone basically ignored the Democrat Senator’s censorship request, which is the good news. But what does it say when a sitting US Senator’s first impulse is to crush the First Amendment in order to protect reckless banks from the American people?

The Democrat Party has moved so far to the left that it is unrecognizable to most Americans these days. Censoring people to prevent bank runs? That really lets you know what they think about Americans and freedom, doesn’t it?
