Current Events: Restrict Act – Bill S. 686
Mar 28, 2023
This is NOT my video, this is courtesy of @sayheyjames (he is on Tiktok and Youtube). You need to educate yourselves VERY quickly on Bill S. 686 that is going into your Congress. It is called the Restrict Act (I’ve linked it below):
Essentially, this bill will allow the US government to prohibit and deal out fines/prison time for people who go behind the government’s back to access restricted content. This means there could be jail time for downloading a VPN to access Tiktok if it gets banned. This means granting the government access to your ring cameras, home security, phones, literally anything that uses the internet. This gives the government the right to investigate your social media connections, the games you play, the movies you watch, etc – anything that might be deemed a threat to American security (this goes beyond just Tiktok). It also gives them the right to halt your transactions if you are purchasing goods and services that are deemed prohibited by the government.
Penalties: A person who willfully commits, willfully attempts to commit, or willfully conspires to commit, or aids or abets in the commission of an unlawful act described in subsection (a) shall, upon conviction, be fined not more than $1,000,000, or if a natural person, may be imprisoned for not more than 20 years, or both.
This also gives them the right to take your phone, your car, your house – anything that has been used in the process of accessing whatever it is the government has restricted. This is not just about Tiktok though, the bill specifically highlights any use of social media platforms that reach over 1 million Americans – which is essentially all social media. They are going to try to use this as a means of controlling mass communication. What better way to control the people than to limit their ability to gather together and discuss things. The amount of government overreach that could happen if this bill gets pushed is unparalleled.
This is serious. ***You need to get in touch with your political representatives (Congressmen and Senators)*** before this goes to vote and tell them that you do not support this bill and you will not support them if they push this bill through. This was just introduced to Congress on March 7th, under the sponsorship of Senator Mark R. Warner from the Democratic party in Virginia.
