Appearing on Sunday Morning futures, discussing the fallout from the storming of the U.S. Capitol, Florida Senator Marco Rubio said “the left has decided this is an opportunity to destroy the right. So, if you ever voted for Donald Trump, if you ever supported anything he did, you are just as guilty as the people who went into that Capitol.”
He continues “and this is also an opportunity for them to now go and put pressure on social media companies to literally not just erase the president, erase everybody. We’re now living in a country where four or five companies, unelected, unaccountable, have the power, a monopoly power to decide, we’re going to wipe people out, we’re going to just erase them from any sort of digital platform, whether it’s selling things and the like.”
“Even if you don’t like Donald Trump, that should be concerning that they have that power. It’s also very cynical, by the way, OK?” he added “Facebook, Twitter, these are not moral champions here. The reason why these guys are doing it is because the Democrats are about to take power, and they view this as a way to get on their good side to avoid any sort of restrictions or any sort of laws being passed that hurt them.”
“So, it’s unfortunate that, instead of unifying us right now, Biden and the Democrats have chosen to use this as an opportunity to talk about ridiculous things, like let’s impeach a president who isn’t going to be even in office in about nine days,” Rubio concluded.
