I know you are probably shocked that the Constitution was upheld in a recent court case. I am too. It seems that these days that lawsuits are only decided based on what political party you belong to: Republican bad, Democrats good. Trump and his supporters bad, leftists good.
But in a surprising shock, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals decided on Friday to uphold a lower court decision that bars the federal government from working with social media companies to remove First Amendment-protected content. This was reported by Just the News and they said that the court decision read, “Defendants, and their employees and agents, shall take no actions, formal or informal, directly or indirectly, to coerce or significantly encourage social-media companies to remove, delete, suppress, or reduce, including through altering their algorithms, posted social-media content containing protected free speech.”
The decision went on to say, “That includes, but is not limited to, compelling the platforms to act, such as by intimating that some form of punishment will follow a failure to comply with any request, or supervising, directing, or otherwise meaningfully controlling the social-media companies’ decision- making process.”
The court case, Missouri v. Biden, stemmed from the tyrannical Biden leftists working with social media companies to censor us when they didn’t like what we said about the COVID-19 pandemic.
The New Civil Liberties Alliance fought against the Biden tyrants and said after the victory for their clients, “The Biden Administration’s years-long censorship campaign has suppressed perspectives contradicting government-approved views on hotly disputed topics like whether natural immunity to Covid-19 exists, Covid-19 vaccine concerns, the virus’s origins, and mask mandate efficacy. The vast, coordinated censorship campaign has silenced public voices including influential doctors and scientists. Drs. Bhattacharya, Kulldorff and Kheriaty, and Ms. Hines have all been blacklisted, shadow-banned, de-boosted, throttled, and censored on social media.”
They concluded in their statement, “Importantly, the Court recognized that the Plaintiffs did not challenge the social-media platforms’ content-moderation policies. Rather, Plaintiffs challenged the government’s unlawful efforts to influence enforcement of those policies. The government gravely harmed the ability of NCLA’s clients to convey their views to the public, and it deprived Americans of their right to hear opinions that differ from the government’s. Judge Doughty strikingly described the Administration’s conduct as ‘arguably the most massive attack against free speech in United States history’ and ‘akin to an Orwellian Ministry of Truth.’ Today’s order should stop that conduct.”
While this sounds all nice and good, we all know that the Biden administration will get around this – especially when they have social media “partners” who will VOLUNTEER to help them censor us.
