Judge Bars Biden Administration From Colluding With Big Tech To Censor Free Speech

A federal judge in Lousiana issued a preliminary injunction that bars the Biden regime from colluding with Big Tech to censor Americans exercising their First Amendment rights.

“If the allegations made by Plaintiffs are true, the present case arguably involves the most massive attack against free speech in United States’ history,” Judge Terry Doughty, chief judge of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana, noted in the ruling. “In their attempts to suppress alleged disinformation, the Federal Government, and particularly the Defendants named here, are alleged to have blatantly ignored the First Amendment’s right to free speech.”

In his 155-page memorandum ruling handed down on July 4, the Trump appointee specified that federal agencies such as the Department of Health and Human Services, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Census Bureau, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of State, the FBI, and the Department of Justice may no longer coordinate with or “coerce” platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Google to silence their political enemies.

The Biden White House has a history of bragging about leveraging relationships with Big Tech companies to suppress information the administration deems “problematic.” In addition to a plethora of federal agencies, the injunction also applies to defendants such as President Joe Biden himself, his press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, his director of digital strategy, and other members of the Executive Office of the President.

“Although this case is still relatively young, and at this stage the Court is only examining it in terms of Plaintiffs’ likelihood of success on the merits, the evidence produced thus far depicts an almost dystopian scenario,” Doughty wrote.

Doughty said he expects the case, brought by attorneys general Eric Schmitt of Missouri and Jeff Landry of Louisiana, to succeed “on the merits in establishing that the Government has used its power to silence the opposition” on topics like Covid-19, masking, lockdowns, vaccines, the 2020 election, Biden policies, and the veracity of the Hunter Biden laptop.

“All were suppressed,” Doughty wrote. “It is quite telling that each example or category of suppressed speech was conservative in nature. This targeted suppression of conservative ideas is a perfect example of viewpoint discrimination of political speech. American citizens have the right to engage in free debate about the significant issues affecting the country.”

Several corporate media outlets lamented Doughty’s decision.

The Washington Post complained that the “Trump-appointed judge’s move could upend years of efforts to enhance coordination between the government and social media companies.”

Since when did the Biden admin obey the law ?
This done because of the Covid emergency that Biden not long ago said, is over? Hide the truth, call it disinformation and lest we forget…”follow the science!”

I just hope the administration doesn't go judge shopping untill they find some crazy radical who gives him the green light to continue on with what they are doing.Then it will have to go all the way up to Supreme.

@DavidT8899 They are also trying to destroy the Supreme Court. Because if they can't cheat they can't win.

@4meAndyou True.Donald Trump did many good things while in office,but perhaps his greatest legacy was creating a strong SCOTUS.

just in case you wanted a legal argument instead of a political one. the way to proceed if you want to end censorship on big tech apps, such as twitter, fb etc. is to first prove that they are common carriers, i.e.[b] not publishers.[/b] whenever such claims are made, the usual defense that google will make is that it is a [b]publisher[/b]. therefore, [b]google[/b] can do whatever it wants to do. but you and i know that that is not true, and these apps/corps do not advertise themselves this way. another problem that you face with ending censorship is that on real freedom of speech services such as gab, they can never get any traction because people abandon the service when they see something that offends them. people dont use blocking because they aren't able to comprehend that they have to deal with seeing something that they dont like.
That's good news
If big tech listened and capitulated to Biden’s attempt at censorship , I wouldn’t see them as big tech. More liked owned by Biden and his cabal.
I'll agree with you on this one- freedom of speech is as important as the right to vote.
Sounds reasonable. I'd need a restraining order if powerful people wouldn't stop ordering me around.
