Breaking: Federal Judge Forbids the FBI, DOJ, DHS, etc. From Coordinating Censorship With Big Tech; Says Plaintiffs Have Made Overwhelming Case That Gov't Censored Conservatives

And he says the US government formed an Orwellian, dystopian "Ministry of Truth."

The case is still in early days, but this preliminary injunction is being issued before the actual trial -- the judge finds the evidence so overwhelming that he feels it is appropriate to issue this order now, to stop the government from further depriving people of their rights.


Senator Eric Schmitt
@SenEricSchmitt

NEW: In the case I filed when I was Missouri's Attorney General - Missouri v. Biden - the federal court just granted a preliminary injunction PREVENTING the federal government from colluding with social media companies to censor speech.

Happy 4th of July!

BREAKING: A Federal Judge in Missouri v. Biden just granted a preliminary injunction prohibiting the FBI, DOJ, DHS & other agencies from working with Big Tech to censor on social media

Big win for the First Amendment on this Independence Day

I'm proud to have led the fight.

The money quote:

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.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, a period perhaps best characterized by widespread doubt and uncertainty, the United States Government seems to have assumed a role similar to an Orwellian "Ministry of Truth."

Eric Schmitt @Eric_Schmitt

White House officials, CDC & others are stopped cold. We need to continue the fight to take down the Vast Censorship Enterprise.

Their view of "misinformation" isn't an excuse to censor. This is the most important free speech case in a generation.

Freedom is on the march


Via Hot Air, the Washington Post complains that this will hurt the efforts of the government to coordinate censorship with the media!

The injunction was a victory for the state attorneys general, who have accused the Biden administration of enabling a "sprawling federal 'Censorship Enterprise'" to encourage tech giants to remove politically unfavorable viewpoints and speakers, and for conservatives who've accused the government of suppressing their speech. In their filings, the attorneys general alleged the actions amount to "the most egregious violations of the First Amendment in the history of the United States of America."

The judge, Terry A. Doughty, has yet to make a final ruling in the case, but in the injunction, he wrote that the Republican attorneys general "have produced evidence of a massive effort by Defendants, from the White House to federal agencies, to suppress speech based on its content."

The ruling could have critical implications for tech companies, which regularly communicate with government officials, especially during elections and emergencies, such as the coronavirus pandemic.

Yes, assholes -- that's the point. What you're doing is illegal. It always was.
