KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) — Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni said Tuesday that his government has shut down social media ahead of a tense election on Thursday, accusing Facebook and unnamed outside groups of “arrogance” after the social network this week removed Ugandan accounts linked to his reelection campaign.

“That social channel you are talking about, if it is going to operate in Uganda, it should be used equitably by everybody who wants to use it,” Museveni said of Facebook in a national address. “If you want to take sides against the (ruling party), then that group will not operate in Uganda.”

    The Libertarian in me is Horrified. But, the pissed off American in me has a contented smile on his face. It didn’t take long for the rest of the world to recognize the threat to democracy that Big Tech represents. I expect we will see more of this. I can’t wait for a 1st world nation to have an election and see how they deal with Facistbook and Twatter now.
