r/worldnews – Iran said Tuesday that several state-linked news websites have been seized by the U.S. government under unclear circumstances

Imagine criticizing other governments for blocking your websites (which I agree is bad) and then forcibly blocking the websites of another country for the entire world.

Anyone who defends the American government imposing literal global censorship in this case because the Iranian government sucks is completely missing the point. If this precedent stands, and it probably will, they are going to use the precedent to censor more and more outlets. Our governments are citing the need to combat authoritarian rivals to become more authoritarian themselves.
