On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Ingraham Angle,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) reacted to reporting from The Intercept on federal agencies working with tech platforms to suppress online speech by stating that, for all the Biden administration’s talk about democracy, “they’re undermining the very basic principles of our constitutional republic” by censoring speech.

Paul said, “You know, for all the talk of democracy, it seems to me that they’re undermining the very basic principles of our constitutional republic. Freedom of speech was listed in the First Amendment because it was one of the most important rights that our founders thought should be protected. But having the government collude with big tech to censor speech is something that goes against every grain of everything that anyone has ever spoken about as far as freedom of speech.”
