FaceBook's "Supreme Court" Claims That Trump's Ban Was Righteous and Certainly Not Grounds for an Anti-Trust Lawsuit

These all-star blue-ribbon commissions exist for one reason only: to confirm the decisions of the company paying them for their "independent judgment" and to insulate them from legal consequences.

Remember what the Rathergate Blue-Ribbon Panel of Journalism Experts concluded? That they couldn't tell if the fake documents were in fact fake. Despite an appendix noting that the font they were typed in did not exist until decades later.

acebook on Wednesday kept its ban on former President Trump on the social media site.

The decision was made by Facebook's quasi-oversight board. Trump was banned from the site and from Facebook-owned Instagram following the Jan. 6 Capitol riot over concerns that his posts incited the rioters and that future ones could spark similar incidents.

Facebook's oversight board is made up of 20 members including former political leaders, human rights activists and journalists.

Let's see who FaceBook stacked its "oversight board" with:

One member of the board, Pamela Karlan, a law professor at Stanford, testified during Trump's first impeachment trial in the House in December 2019, arguing he should be impeached for "high crimes and misdemeanors" and in the process mocking Trump’s then-14-year-old son, Barron.

Karlan stepped down from the board in February to join the Biden administration. She was replaced by Suzanne Nossel, a veteran of the Obama administration.

Disingenuously, Jim Jordan tweeted "Break them up:"

But this is a con on conservative voters, because he distributed pro-Big-Tech/pro-monopoly talking points to his fellow "conservative" congressmen to help them help the Big Tech executives they were supposedly interrogating.

The GOP runs this con on conservatives every single fucking day: They could do something real about this at any time. There's even a majority of Democrats on the Antitrust Committee recommending these companies be broken up or legally limited.

But of course the GOP won't do that.

The GOP just wants to send Sternly-Worded Tweets.

The NeverTrumpers are all out in force. They all depend on the leftwing media to support them. They all therefore parrot the leftwing media's talking points:
