Ted Cruz was the guest of Maria Bartiromo on Sunday. As many of you know, Cruz is a lawyer and has argued cases before the Supreme Court, which he won.
During his visit, he made a shocking revelation. Cruz said that because of Facebook’s censorship of opinions that differed from Dr. Fauci’s, they have opened themselves to financial liability over the fact that they hid the truth and pushed the lies from Fauci.
We now know that for the past year, Fauci has either been wrong or lying about COVID-19.
Because President Trump recommended hydroxychloroquine, Fauci naturally had to claim it was not only not effective but that it was dangerous.
Hydroxychloroquine has now saved lives all over the world. It saved lives in the United States until Fauci and the CDC panned it rather than give Trump the credit he deserved.
Facebook acted as an extension of the government by censoring anything that disagreed with Fauci and the CDC. Cruz says this makes them open to legal liability.
Senator Ted Cruz: In the email dump that came out, it makes clear that this is not just being sloppy. It is systematic and it is systematically an effort to mislead the American people.
And as you noted he wasn’t doing it alone but was doing it with much of the US government behind him and with Facebook and Big Tech operating as an extension of the US government in order to silence any views that disagreed, not with the science, because he wasn’t looking for the science. He was suppressing the science. But rather trying to silence anything that disagreed with the political narrative that was convenient that he was pushing at that moment…
VIDEO OF THE DAYFacebook Finally Loses
…If you went out and posted the facts that led, a year ago, to the very strong likelihood that the coronavirus escaped from a Chinese government lab in Wuhan, China. If you posted that a year ago and they took it down, I think there is a very good argument you have a cause of action against Facebook.
And, Facebook would ordinarily say, “We’re a private company. We’re not liable.” Well, you know, when they act at the behest of the government. When they contact Fauci. When they say, “Should we censor this and Fauci says, “Yes.” And they censor it for the federal government. And then magically when the government changes its mind and says, “Oh, all those facts that were there a year ago, now you’re allowed to talk about it.” They stop censoring it with the flip of a switch. That lays a very strong argument that Facebook is operating as a state agency and that opens very seriously legal liability.
