By suing Twitter, Facebook and Google, Donald Trump once again demonstrates his ignorance of the Constitution. During another of his sweaty, yelling and nasty speeches, Trump announced his lawsuit with the claim that banning these social media platforms violates his First Amendment rights. The jurists have explained how incorrect their interpretation of the law is and how this claim is unfounded and will be dismissed by the courts. Let’s call this movement for what it is: a political stunt.
Since Trump made the announcement this week that he is suing Facebook, Twitter and Google, legal experts have inundated the media with statements about the total lack of merit in the case. In a recent Bloomberg article in Bloomberg Opinion, writer Noah Bloomberg writes: “Former President Donald Trump litigation against Twitter, Google and Facebook for kicking him off their platforms are sure losers, legally speaking. The First Amendment protects individuals from state action, and technology companies are not state actors.Throughout his presidency it was clear that Trump had never read the Constitution and when the Amendments were explained to him, he did not understand the legal interpretations. These social media platforms
In January 2020, Facebook, Twitter and Google determined ex
The presence of President Donald Trump on their platforms represented a potential danger to the public. Despite widespread criticism for years, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg allowed Trump’s “false and inflammatory claims”. on his platform stating in an NBC report, “the journalistic value of the statements and Facebook’s commitment to defend freedom of expression” as the reason for allowing the former president to continue publishing. However, after the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, Zuckerberg, along with other Facebook executives, decided that Trump’s “blatant incitement to violence to reverse the election crossed the line.” The fact that a sitting president has been silenced, suspended from the use of the most popular public platforms for freedom of expression, is further proof of his dangerous and perverted abuse of his political power.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey joined in silencing Trump’s false and dangerous rhetoric on social media by suspending his Twitter account on January 8, 2020 following the January 6 uprising, citing incitement to the Trump camera violence. The Twitter statement reported by CNN Business regarding the decision to suspend Trump’s account was;
“After a close review of recent tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the surrounding context, we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement to violence,” Twitter said.
Trump’s latest tweets before he was permanently banned from Twitter included statements such as that Vice President Mike Pence did not dare to stop the certification of the stolen election and;
“These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide electoral victory is so brutally and unceremoniously stripped of the great patriots.. “Twitter determined that these post-insurrection comments fueled potential violence and FINALLY took away his dangerous voice from social media.
Since his doomed political reality show stunt to sue the platforms on flawed legal grounds, Trump has been trying to get more money from his financially struggling supporters. The Trump family, considered one of the richest families in America, simply cannot ask for donations. They are not ashamed. They asked for donations for Trump’s birthday, for the “big robbery lie” movement and their false judgments against BIG TECH that only serve two purposes; to get you publicity and money in your wallet. When did Republican voters get so dumb?
The scam of the Republican electorate is destroying the traditional Republican Party from pursuing its conservative agendas, which although this blog opposes, we recognize that those policies are not aimed at destroying democracy. We thank the executives at Twitter, Facebook and Google who did their part to silence Trump and his violent and undemocratic rhetoric and protect millions of Americans from being incited to hatred and violence.
