Facebook censored a post by Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) where she said biological males should not compete in female sports. Facebook claimed the post violated its hate speech policies.
“Biological men have no place in women’s sports,” Blackburn wrote on her personal Facebook account, which has more than 150,000 followers.
In a statement to Fox News about the censorship, Blackburn said: “Big Tech and the Democrats are colluding to radically transform America. They want to silence and censor conservatives for speaking out against their woke agenda. It does not take a biologist to know the difference between a man and a woman, and I will not be silenced or threatened by Silicon Valley oligarchs. Biological men have no place in women’s sports.”
Blackburn has also been outspoken against all forms of censorship by Big Tech platforms. In a letter to the White House, she called out the Biden administration for colluding with social media platforms to censor COVID-19 misinformation, arguing it was a potential violation of the First Amendment.
