They’re DONE…Facebook Can’t Do THIS Anymore

Free speech is part of what makes America great. There are nations and countries where speaking your mind results in death. Here, even an unpopular idea is allowed. However, the technology we live with overstepped its bounds and wriggled into the area of power. Companies such as Facebook, Google and Twitter started censoring those who ideas didn’t agree with that power. Free speech is necessary.

Abbott’s bill against Facebook

And others that do this was signed. HR 20 ends censoring or limiting speech based on the views a person expresses.

The bill applies to social media with over 50 million people using it. Federal Judge Andrew Oldham of the Fifth Circuit said the platforms pushed 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.”

Facebook needs to stay out

Of the power realm. Judge Oldham went on, “Today we reject the idea that corporations have a freewheeling First Amendment right to censor what people say.”

Naturally, the technology companies are fighting back. NetChoice, a non profit, is representing Facebook. They’re challenging the ruling and HR 20.

Big Tech headed for Supreme Court

Fox reported that, “We remain convinced that when the U.S. Supreme Court hears one of our cases, it will uphold the First Amendment rights of websites, platforms, and apps.” This ruling is a complete reversal of the one that happened through the US Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit in May. There was a similar social media in Florida that was struck down that violated the platforms’ free speech rights.

When there is a “split” like this, the Supreme Court is more likely to take the case. Republicans are happy for this ruling and bill. Facebook and other platforms need to stop censoring.
