There's a bill being pushed by the Republican Party and backed by several people such as Ivanka Trump - the President's daughter - which on the outside looks like a great way to combat human and child-sex trafficking - something we all despise - but the FOSTA bill has a hidden measure - that puts websites - especially Conservative media - in danger for mass targeted censorship.

The idea of stopping human trafficking or child sex trafficking is a brilliant thought, and we fully support any measure that promises to do this.

However, deep inside the bill which is wrapped in the appearance of being a means to counter child-sex trafficking and human trafficking, is a measure which will target every website with user-generated content, even if it's unintentional.

Let's explain what this means:

For example, the new bill will make website owner’s both liable for what their users post and at risk to be shut down if they were to post something illegal.

Conservatives, and Trump Supporters: Would you support making firearms manufacturers liable for mass shooting crimes or murder when the person responsible is the one who pulled the trigger? Of course, you wouldn't.

It's about being accountable for your own actions. Blaming website owners for what users post is very dangerous as well.

Here's an example:

Let's say you're a Conservative news website, like The Goldwater, Daily Caller, Breitbart, The Gateway Pundit, or Fox News.

All of those sites have “comments” sections where users can post their opinions about your article.

Let's then say that a group of liberals despise you and want to ruin your website. All they would have to do is post something illegal in the “comments” section and screenshot it, then report your website. This could be anything such as links to buy illegal narcotics on the dark web, or if they spammed child pornography.

They'd simply resort to screenshotting that content and reporting the site they want to be shut down, and then the problem still exists but an innocent website suffers as a result.

<b>Do you see how that works? It makes no sense.</b>

<h2>Take a look at the bill:</h2>

It's a horrifying bill folks, plain and simple.

The EFF wrote the following about the bill before it passed the House of Representatives:

<blockquote>”The House of Representatives is about to vote on a bill that would force online platforms to censor their users. The Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA, H.R. 1865) might sound noble, but it would do nothing to stop sex traffickers. What it would do is force online platforms to police their users’ speech more forcefully than ever before, silencing legitimate voices in the process.”</blockquote>

The bill has since passed the House of Representatives, and the EFF has launched a website to contact your Representatives and Senators and tell them why you don't support this bill.

There’s a new bill in Congress that would threaten your right to free expression online. If that weren’t enough, it could also put small Internet businesses in danger of catastrophic litigation.

Don’t let its name fool you: the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act (SESTA) wouldn’t help punish sex traffickers. What it would do is expose the Internet content platforms that we all rely on every day to the risk of overwhelming criminal and civil liability for their customers’ actions.

All of these are tactics that are currently used to target websites such as imageboards like 4chan, for example, and they have to hire moderators to hunt down the spammers and delete their posts.

If you want to stop human trafficking and child-sex trafficking, start with the source of the problem, which are the people who are responsible for the trafficking to begin with.

Don't lump innocent people into the mix by attacking the internet for the actions which are occurring in the streets of America and the underground network of trafficking.

Imagine of this tactic was weaponized by the left to target Conservative news sites? We already know websites like Twitter, YouTube, Reddit, and Facebook are censoring Conservatives and Trump supporters. It could get much worse if this bill passes.

So I'm asking for the GOP, Trump Supporters, and all of Congress to re-examine this bill and remove this stipulations which threatens the wrong people.

I support President Trump and the First Family, but this bill has this measure hidden inside of it which is dangerous.

Let Ivanka Trump, and everyone pushing the bill know that you're not supporting a bill which casts blame at innocent people.

If someone posts something illegal, law enforcement agencies currently work alongside websites to track down that person and charge them. It should <b>never be the owner of the website</b> who is somehow made <b>liable for the actions of another person</b>, because this will be weaponized.

<i>Again, you wouldn't support making a gun manufacturer responsible for the murder committed by a gunman using their firearm, would you?</i>

At The Goldwater, one of our primary focuses in reporting the news has been heavy coverage of important news stories that the mainstream media won't cover.

Many of those stories are inclusive of topics similarly important to the intended goals of this bill, such as reporting on pedophile and child porn arrests, as well as reports of human trafficking and child sex trafficking.

So we 100% support putting an end to human trafficking and child-sex trafficking.

What we don't support is this hidden measure being hidden inside of the bill. It's dangerous, and it needs to be removed.

Please inform everyone you know about this potential measure which will be weaponized against innocent people.

<b>Thank you.</b>

Even this simple comment section would need to be disabled, if this law is put into place.

You can bet #DemLibs are way ahead on this with their plans

Very unlikely this simple comment section would need to be disabled.

Also there likely to be a court case against this bill.

Ivanka needs to stfu n take her ass out of the white house. All she's doing is the bidding of her kike friends. I'll fuck her brains out and probably impregnate her… But women need to stay the fuck out of politics seriously.
