Sacha Baron Cohen, who is known for mocking ordinary Americans’ toleration of his offensive behavior and deceiving celebrities, called for more Big Tech censorship to fight “anti-Semitism,” “hate” and “bigotry”. While receiving an award from the Anti-Defamation League, he recommended that every online post should be monitored. The ADL has partnered with Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Twitter and has influenced much of the existing censorship on these platforms.

Gad Saad, a Jewish-Canadian behavioral psychologist, pointed out that Sacha Baron Cohen’s definition of what should be censored was far too broad. He described himself as a free-speech absolutist and said it is wrong to attempt to correct falsehoods in a free society. For one thing, it is not always possible to know for sure what the falsehoods are. The only time social-media companies should intervene is for libel/defamation or direct incitement to violence. He says falsehoods can be defeated only by truth, not censorship. -GEG
