House Quietly Passes Bill Targeting "Russian Propaganda" Websites; why should we be concerned?

A few weeks ago, I released the article PropOrNot, Is It Propaganda Or Not? Fake news sources, "Russian propaganda" accusations, hypocrisy of such accusations, & is the establishment media getting desperate? #FakeNews #UnfollowFriday in light of the recent "fake news" and "Russian propaganda" craze.

I updated it to link to the article House Quietly Passes Bill Targeting "Russian Propaganda" Websites, but I did not really read it until the day before this article was released. Before you proceed, read that article.

Now I'm getting concerned. Now, there is a potential for the U.S. government to silence views that it dislikes and get away with it.

I hope that president Donald John Trump doesn't use it, and pays respect to the alternate media that helped him win and to our rights in general. But, considering how he isn't outspoken against the NDAA or Patriot act, does not talk about liberty, his ego and how much he flip-flops on positions, there is a chance that he may use it to suppress critics. 


But let's not overfocus on him: even though being president is a strong position of political power, we also must look out for congress and the senate enabling the president to do what he does.
A list of the people in congress who voted in support of H.R. 6393, Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 can be found right here.

That's it for now. I hope I do not get shut down for this.
