    Default Federal Court Smacks Down Social Media Platform Censorship

    It seems that the 1st Amendment DOES NOT include the right of large media platforms to censor based on viewpoint. The SELECTIVE BLOCKING OF NON-WOKE/CONSERVATIVE VIEWS IS NOT "OK" UNDER THE 1st AMENDMENT.

    America is slowly, but surely , righting its ship.






    Federal Court Hand Downs Major Ruling Against Facebook — Big Tech Has No ‘Freewheeling First Amendment Right to Censor’



    Censorship on social media may finally come to an end thanks to a law in Texas that was upheld by a federal appeals court.

    In Texas, Governor Greg Abbot signed a bill called HB 20 that stops social media platforms with more than 50 million monthly users from censoring or limiting users’ speech based on viewpoint expression.

    The new law includes Google, Facebook and Twitter. Predictably, left-wing big tech companies aren’t happy about this Texas law as they are fighting back.

    Federal Judge Andrew S. Oldham of the Fifth Circuit said the platforms argued for “a rather odd inversion of the First Amendment” that “buried somewhere in the person’s enumerated right to free speech lies a corporation’s unenumerated right to muzzle speech.”

    Republicans say this latest ruling is a major victory that may result in more free speech and the end of censorship on social media platforms. The ongoing legal battle could end up at the Supreme Court, which holds a conservative majority.

    I was reading that a different court of the same weight ruled the other way....we will see how the courts shake out but given that they fail me and the Constitution much/most of the time I dont have high hopes.
    That there will be no nation left by the time they are done is the feature, not a bug.

    Wake Up.

    Now, the Stalinist social media platforms cannot hide behind the 1st amendment to forward political views via censorship, like they did with the Hunter Biden Laptop story block...any data whatsoever disputing the COVID vac (etc.) and on and on.

    They do not get to "pick sides" for censorship anymore...

    So?
    You are against, free enterprise?
    Good to know.




    'What Is Free Enterprise?

    Free enterprise, or the free market, refers to an economy where the market determines prices, products, and services rather than the government. Businesses and services are free of government control. Alternatively, free enterprise could refer to an ideological or legal system whereby commercial activities are primarily regulated through private measures.'


    https://www.investopedia.com/terms/f...enterprise.asp


    It is none of the fucking, government's business to force a company to offer a customer a non-life threatening service if it does not want to.
    And I don't give a fuck if they have 50,000,000 million or 5 customers.

    If Facebook won't post what you want?
    Hello?
    Just go to a different site.
    DUH!!!


    BTW - I hate Facebook.

    And I despise both parties.
