Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) had very harsh words on Wednesday for the Biden administration and its "insane" push for text surveillance of American citizens in an attempt to dispel alleged vaccine "misinformation."

Hawley called the Communist Chinese Party-esque move by the Biden administration "un-American" and "probably unconstitutional."

Haley said in an interview on Fox News Primetime:

"It sounds like something out of Beijing. I mean, we know that the Communist Chinese Party has built this surveillance state, and now it sounds like Joe Biden wants to bring that to the United States of America."

"I mean, what's going to happen next? Are they going to take away our phones? Are they going to tell Verizon or AT&T or whomever to shut down people's cell service if they text things that the government doesn't like?" asked Hawley.

Hawley went on to detail how the Biden administration is, in his opinion, "pressuring the phone companies, pressuring Verizon and AT&T and whomever else to voluntarily, quote-unquote, comply and tell them, tell the government, what we're texting, what we're, what we’re saying on our private messages."

"That's the real danger here. It's this big government, big corporation alliance. That's what we've got to be wary of. And we've got to say, come on, I mean, let's stand up for free speech in this country," Hawley added.
