The U.S. Appeals Court for the Second Circuit in New York in a rare decision has agreed to have the full 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals hear the case over Section 230 and whether it gives Big Tech the right to censor anyone’s opinion that they do not agree with.
This could be especially important since many of the stories they have flagged as misinformation have actually been true.
This case could be huge in that if the ruling goes for the plaintiff, Big Tech companies could then be sued for censorship of the truth. What truth? How about the origin of COVID-19 starting in the Wuhan lab.
Big Tech declared that it was nothing more than a conspiracy theory but today it is a consensus issue that points to the lab starting the virus.
Or how about the claim that voter fraud is also just a conspiracy theory? After revelations out of Maricopa County Arizona and Fulton County Georgia, the fact is that we have positive proof that voter fraud did occur and the only question is whether there was enough to swing the election. But, indications are that there was massive cheating.
You might be able to debate whether it was enough to swing the election, but they can no longer deny that shenanigans were involved in the counting of the votes.
Attorney Robert Tyler, general counsel for the California-based Advocates for Faith & Freedom said:
“This ruling puts Section 230 immunity in the crosshairs of judicial review. We suspect that the en banc court recognizes that Big Tech is not exempt from state and federal civil rights laws.”
“Section 230 was not intended to give Big Tech the right to exclude persons from their platform just because the customer is black, Muslim, white, Christian, homosexual or formerly homosexual. That is plain invidious discrimination.”
Pastor Jim Domen and the California-based Church United made the statement:
“I never thought I’d see the day that it would be legal in America to discriminate against my faith and the fact that I was previously engaged in the gay lifestyle. As a pastor and former homosexual, I’m encouraged by the rehearing of our sexual orientation and religious discrimination lawsuit.”
