Hochul Admits To Monitoring New Yorkers’ Social Media Accounts

New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced Monday that monitoring New Yorkers’ social media accounts in an effort to limit hate speech.

Stating that she was “very focused” on the data collected through surveillance and comments being shared on social media platforms, Hochul plans to use the information to “catch incitement to violence [and] direct threats to others.”

Many have called into question what the definition of hate speech is. Conservatives have been accused of hate speech due to their opposition of LGBT policies, such as allowing biological men to enter into women’s bathrooms, or children receiving puberty blockers to transition.

Hochul has been overly vocal in regards to hate. She tweeted that hate of any kind would not be tolerated.

Many X users were quick to call out the left-winger’s hypocrisy, with one user calling out her hatred for conservatives.

Hochul announced that she will increase the cost of funding for their efforts, with $50 million going to law enforcement and $25 million going to security grants, totaling up to $75 million.

“As I said, no one walking down the street or in a subway can feel they have to hide any indications of what their religious beliefs are,” she said. “We expect to see people celebrating their lives, walking out freely, and that is no longer the case because people are living in fear. They have a right to do whatever they want here in the state of New York.”

What is more concerning is how the Democratic governor turns a blind eye to the amount of crimes that occur in New York City alone, leaving the residents “living in fear.”

The city has seen a decrease in subway crime this year due to more law enforcement patrol. The crime may be down, but the amount of arrests have increased significantly, as well as the severity of the crimes.

Since the October 7 attack on Israel by Hamas, violence against Jews has increased by 214%, according to the NYPD.

The governor believes that monitoring New Yorkers’ social media accounts will prevent some of the antisemitism attacks seen in the state.

Hochul’s surveillance is an attack on the First Amendment’s protection of free speech. If it is anything like the left’s other policies, it is likely that liberals will still have a free pass to spew hate at anyone who opposes their agenda.
