Lawsuit: Harmeet K. Dhillon and Ron Coleman Sue Twitter, Alleging They Became a State Actor When They Conspired with California to Fight "Election Disinformation"

Twitter and the Democrat-run government of California are facing a lawsuit alleging that they colluded to suppress the First Amendment rights of Rogan O’Handley, a popular pro-Trump activist who was banned from the platform earlier this year. The complaint includes emails showing California officials directing Twitter to remove political commentary about the 2020 election from its platform.

...

According to O’Handley's lawsuit, brought by Harmeet Dhillon's legal nonprofit, the Center for American Liberty, Twitter made its decision at the direction of California's Office of Elections Cybersecurity, a bureau which was set up in 2018 to "educate voters" with "valid information" on elections.

Via the Center for American Liberty:

In 2018, the state government of California created the Office of Elections Cybersecurity to "educate voters" with "valid information" on election laws and procedures. And as any sensible person could predict, this office quickly devolved into a political weapon for censorship by the far-left Secretary of State’s Office, more resembling a Harry Potter like "Ministry of Approved Election Information" than a constitutionally governed state agency.

Leading up to the 2020 election and in the months following it, Twitter, at the direction government employees at the California Office of Elections Cybersecurity, discriminately removed tweets posted by conservative social media influencers criticizing Joe Biden and questioning the legitimacy of the 2020 election. Their objective was simple--censor their political opponents.

Below, Robert Barnes discusses the suit with Viva Frei. Barnes says that Dhillon and Coleman have all the "receipts," including "highly incriminating" correspondence between Twitter and the state of California which makes it pretty clear that Twitter is a state actor.

You know, if a cop asks a private citizen to break into someone's house to gather information, that information is still barred from court as if the cop did it himself? Once the state makes someone their agent for a task, that agent is the state as far as the law and Constitution, and all limitations imposed by each, are concerned.

Barnes says this is the perfect set-up for the Supreme Court. He says the case will be highly precedential -- one way or the other. After the decision, we'll either know if free speech still exists, or if the Supreme Court has taken it upon themselves to turn America into an overt Corporate Oligarchy.

Only six minute clip. Worth your time.
