Prince Harry Calls For Social Media Reform In Response To Capitol Riots
Prince Harry waded into politics again when he gave an interview about the Capitol riots, calling them a "literal attack on democracy."
Prince Harry went full “woke” once again this week as he discussed what happened on the Capitol happened in the first week of January. He called for social media companies to be held accountable for the roles he claims they played in what went down.
Though there is a longstanding tradition that members of the British royal family stay politically neutral at all times, Harry sounded like a radically liberal Hollywood star as he bought into the leftwing narrative of what went down at the Capitol on January 6.

“We have seen time and again what happens when the real-world cost of misinformation is disregarded. There is no way to downplay this. There was a literal attack on democracy in the United States, organized on social media, which is an issue of violent extremism,” Harry told Fast Company.
Hmmm, is Harry thinking about applying for American citizenship?
Harry Attacks Social Media
Harry proceeded to effectively call for censorship on social media, undoubtedly hoping that Big Tech will make more moves to censor conservatives in the future.
“Dominant online platforms have contributed to and stoked the conditions for a crisis of hate, a crisis of health, and a crisis of truth,” Harry said.

“And I stand by that, along with millions of others who see and feel what this era has done at every level — we are losing loved ones to conspiracy theories, losing a sense of self because of the barrage of mistruths, and at the largest scale, losing our democracies.”
“The magnitude of this cannot be overstated, as noted even by the defectors who helped build these platforms. It takes courage to stand up, cite where things have gone wrong, and offer proposals and solutions,” he added.
“The need for that is greater than ever before. So I’m encouraged by and grateful for the groundswell of people who work — or have worked — inside these very platforms choosing to speak up against hate, violence, division, and confusion.”
Harry Plays The Victim
Unsurprisingly, Harry then shifted to playing the victim (a favorite pastime of his) by whining about the “well-documented online harassment” that he says he and his wife Meghan Markle have faced.
“I was really surprised to witness how my story had been told one way, my wife’s story had been told one way, and then our union sparked something that made the telling of that story very different,” he said.
“That false narrative became the mothership for all of the harassment you’re referring to. It wouldn’t have even begun had our story just been told truthfully.”
Oh cry me a river, Harry. You’ve effectively been given the ultimate free ride in life, so forgive us if we don’t feel too sorry for you if you’ve gotten a few mean comments thrown at you online.
Since stepping down as senior royals last year, Harry and Meghan have moved to Hollywood, where they are fitting right in by being as “woke” as can be.
We can’t imagine that the Queen, who has always stayed politically neutral, is too happy abut their antics.
