Arizona Senator Calls For Censoring Social Media To Prevent “Bank Runs”

Arizona Senator Mark Kelly has called for the censoring of social media companies to prevent bank runs. The senator asked about censoring social media during a meeting with the Federal Reserve, FDIC, Treasury Department, senators, and house members, on the bailout of Silicon Valley Bank

Kelly, a democrat from Arizona, asked during a meeting about the bailout of Silicon Valley Bank whether social media could be censored to prevent misinformation going out that could lead to a bank run, according to a report by Fox News.

Michael Shellenberger, an independent journalist who reports on the Twitter files and has contributed to Fox News, confirmed that Kelly asked the Federal Reserve, Treasury Department, and Federal Deposit and Insurance Corporation (FDIC) about censorship measures during the meeting on Sunday.

Other house (ruling class) members on the call confirmed Shellenberger’s publication, Public on Substack, that a senator asked about censoring social media companies, including Representative Thomas Massie, a republican from Kentucky, though Kelly’s name was not specifically noted.

“Just got off a Zoom meeting with Fed, Treasury, FDIC, House, and Senate,” Massie tweeted on Sunday. “A Democrat Senator essentially asked whether there was a program in place to censor information on social media that could lead to a run on the banks.”

After Shellenberger’s piece went out on Monday, Massie retweeted the story, saying, “His name.” –Fox News

Kelly’s propaganda team denied the claim that he asked to censor social media on Monday evening and said Kelly asked about foreign adversaries potentially trying to take advantage of the situation by spreading misinformation.

Nonetheless, even if Kelly wants censorship because of “foreign adversaries”, he still called for it. He wants what little is left of our liberty to speak our minds eroded further in the name of safety.
