As we enter the days before the election, word is coming out that multiple conservatives are being targeted by big tech for censorship. Steve Crowder has had his YouTube channel shut down, and LibsofTikTok has also been banned from multiple platforms.

I don’t want to hear about how they are a private company and can do as they please. As long as they are immune from lawsuits because they are claiming to be a neutral platform that can’t be blamed for what people post, they must remain free of using the ban hammer to influence the conversation. Otherwise, they are just another arm of government censorship.

Trump was going to do something about this tech leviathan and that is why they stopped it by any means necessary.
Little Steal 2022 will be a noxious miasma swamp gas extravaganza.

    Excellent observation! I agree with that.

Well, like they say, why not just start your own “public square”? You can be immune to lawsuits for squashing libtard vermin.

There is little difference between this situation and your 5th A argument for the disparate treatment of gov’t workers vs. private workers. Some animals are just more equal than others.

    1 You can’t start your own “public square” because anyone who tries gets squashed by the large providers. There is an entire topic on that. That is why this server and the bloggers I host on it even exist. Remember when Apple, Google, and Amazon all removed Parler? That is why Parler hasn’t taken off to this day.

    2 It isn’t “my” argument. It was SCOTUS who declared that government workers can’t be denied due process. Take it up with them. The cases are Cleveland Board of Education v. Loudermill, Board of Regents v. Roth, and a few other cases that I can’t remember. These are cases that are taught in every employment law class.

It’s part of the telecom act of 1996. Either you are a “common carrier” like an old AT&T landline phone where they don’t monitor your conversations and can’t be held liable for you committing crimes over their network, or they aren’t a common carrier and they actively polices and moderates users. If they police/moderate, they can be held liable for crimes committed using their platform.

If Facebook was only engaged in removing illegal content (pirated videos, child porn, etc…) they’d be fine. They wouldn’t be subject to arbitrary lawsuits over content.

If they start censoring things like political speech, they aren’t a “common carrier” and the legal protections are removed.

    Except that the government is full of leftists who are all ideological buddies with these tech companies, so they aren’t exactly providing neutral oversight. So they get away with all but the most egregious censorship.

    Private companies who all have the same political bent working in parallel maybe not be doing so explicitly with a common goal, but certainly its enough that they have a major impact on conservatives.

      It should be possible to jurisdiction shop like the leftards do. These guys are international in scope. Find some friendly judge in Florida or somewhere else in the 2nd, and let it get kicked up to USSC.

      No it won’t happen before midterms, but I don’t see things getting any better before they go a whole lot worse and there’s no chance at the appellate level OR the USSC.

        One of the biggest things that Trump was able to accomplish, aside from his huge win on getting 3 SCOTUS picks, was that he was able to expose just how big the Bureaucracy had gotten. The shadow government is the tail that wags the dog.
