It’s funny to think that just because Joe Biden won the presidency that Donald Trump would just disappear. Did Hillary Clinton disappear after Trump won in 2016? Absolutely not.
We need Donald Trump. We need more conservatives like him. Why? He’s willing to fight for our rights. He understands the struggles that we face and he’s willing to make a difference.
As a result, Donald Trump has announced that he’s going to file a lawsuit against Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg. Finally, we have someone who is willing to go after the social media executives.
The press conference that Trump gave on July 7 in New Jersey is what everyone wanted to hear. He started out by talking about the power and rights that we have for free speech. The founding fathers provided us with the right to free speech because they knew that it was critical to preserving our republic.
Yet, CEOs like Dorsey and Zuckerberg want to take those rights away by banning accounts and flagging posts.
Trump talks about the “prevention of horror.” George Washington (who won’t be canceled) talked heavily about how if the freedom of speech were to be taken away, then “dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”
It’s amazing how Washington was concerned about such a thing over 200 years ago. Now, we’re dealing with other forces that are trying to silence us. We cannot allow ourselves to be led dumb and silent to be slaughtered.
Although Washington never had to deal with being silenced over such platforms as Twitter and Facebook, he dealt with other forces.
We cannot allow Dorsey and Zuckerberg to determine what we can and cannot say. Social media is one of the easiest ways for us to express ourselves. It’s meant to be a social platform. No one is taking it seriously. It’s a place to converse, not to seek out the latest breaking news story.
If the CEOs continue to silence us in the fashion that they are, they’re taking away our First Amendment right. And Trump isn’t going to stand for it. Since the Democrats aren’t going to stand up to the social media executives, Trump will.
The former president has filed a class-action lawsuit that targets Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube due to their censoring of conservatives.
It’s only right that Trump leads the charge. After all, while he was a sitting president, the social media companies chose to suspend and even close his accounts. If the social media companies can do that to the highest elected official in the U.S., they are clearly on egomaniacal power trips that completely ignore the freedom of speech.
During Trump’s speech, he said that “We’re demanding an end to the shadowbanning, a stop to the silencing, and a stop to the blacklisting, banishing and canceling that you know so well.”
If there’s anyone who can fight the censorship of social media companies, it would be the team of Trump lawyers.
Legal experts around the country are already jumping on this to determine if there’s a chance of such a thing holding up in court.
The lawsuits allege that Facebook, Twitter, and Google-owned YouTube should not be seen as private companies but rather “state actors.” The lawsuits also demand to remove Section 230, an internet law that is decades old that allows tech companies to be protected from lawsuits that focus on content moderation.
This isn’t about money. This is about our rights. And since the Biden administration doesn’t care what social media does, we have to depend on Trump once more.
