Donald Trump (or whoever runs his Twitter account) threatens to veto the annual National Defense Authorization Act — a.k.a. the military budget — unless it includes a repeal of Section 230.

Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act protects social networks, forums, image boards, and websites from lawsuits related to the content that users post. This is the second time Trump’s Twitter account has called for it to be terminated in the past week.

Donald Trump and the GOP have criticized social media networks for years for what they tell their base is “big tech censorship.” If Section 230 is removed from law, social media companies will be forced to censor users to prevent being sued for content that could be disinformation, encouraging violence, copyrighted material, etc.

A week ago, we published an overview of Parler in which network analyst Dave Troy claims repealing Section 230 is the primary objective of the far-right propaganda social network.

According to network analyst and disinformation expert Dave Troy, Parler’s purpose is “expressly political and aimed at eroding U.S. social media firms” by challenging Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

Images and videos may be missing from posts. This is a temporary problem that should resolve itself in the next couple days. If it doesn’t, we will go through and re-add media to posts beginning next week.
