Merkel Says Big Tech Shouldn’t Have Power to Decide Who Has Free Speech

by A.P.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has criticized Twitter for banning President Trump, saying that social media networks shouldn’t have the power to decide who is allowed to exercise free speech.

Twitter banned Trump on Friday night after blaming him for inciting the storming of Capitol Hill by some of his supporters, despite Trump himself calling on those responsible to “go home.”

Facebook has also indefinitely suspended Trump, who has also been deplatformed by a number of other services.

The actions received widespread praise from leftists across the board, although Angela Merkel is now sounding the alarm.
