Banished journalist and Florida U.S. House candidate Laura Loomer’s lawsuit against Big Tech will be heard in the court of law following an order in the D.C. Circuit on Thursday.
Loomer is accusing tech giants such as Google, Apple, Facebook and Twitter of conspiring to suppress conservative voices on their platforms. The lawsuit is challenging these monolithic corporations for allegedly violating antitrust law as well as the 1st Amendment of the Constitution.
Her lawsuit had been previously tossed out by U.S. District Judge Trever N. McFadden, a Trump appointee to the bench, who stated that “while selective censorship of the kind alleged by the plaintiffs may be antithetical to the American tradition of freedom of speech, it is not actionable under the First Amendment unless perpetrated by a state actor.” However, Loomer was able to use a recent court ruling to resurrect her lawsuit despite the initial setback.
Loomer’s legal team, led by the right-wing political interest group Freedom Watch, used the precedent of Packingham v. North Carolina, a ruling which determined that it was unconstitutional to ban sex offenders from social media. The case essentially set the precedent that social media is a 1st Amendment right.
“Many of the principles set forth by the Supreme Court in Packingham lead to what appellants believe is the natural progression of the law to hold that social media companies are liable for First Amendment violations, given the progression of technology and its infiltration into the daily lives of nearly every single person,” Loomer’s team said in their final brief presented to the court.
Loomer points to Twitter banning her from the platform at the end of 2018 after she said that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) adheres to a religion in which “women are abused” and “forced to wear the hijab.” She was similarly banned from Instagram for her assertion that Islam is “a cancer on humanity,” and Facebook, which owns Instagram, quickly followed suit and banned her even though the offending post was not made on that platform.
Loomer still cannot get her accounts restored despite the fact that she is running for the U.S. House in Florida’s 21st Congressional District, which could be considered a form of electoral interference.
Through her legal fight against the tech giants, Loomer is forcing them to reveal that they are no longer neutral platforms:
The tech behemoth Facebook has admitted that it is a publisher while defending its arbitrary censorship of banished journalist Laura Loomer, according to court documents.
Facebook banned Loomer’s account from their platform during a purge of popular conservative voices that happened in May. Others targeted by the purge included Milo Yiannopoulos, Alex Jones and Paul Joseph Watson. Loomer is striking back with a lawsuit that is unearthing some interesting revelations about the social media monolith.
“Under well-established law, neither Facebook nor any other publisher can be liable for failing to publish someone else’s message,” Facebook’s attorneys wrote.
Facebook actually has the audacity to claim that their 1st Amendment rights are being violated by Loomer’s lawsuit, in a total contorting of reality. They have filed a motion to dismiss the case.
“She claims Facebook labeled her as a ‘dangerous’ person who promotes hate – yet, the First Amendment has long protected such statements because they are opinions that are not capable of being proven true or false,” Facebook’s attorneys claim in their dismissal motion.
Right now, Facebook is protected under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act from being held liable for the content published on their platform. This special exemption worked fine when the social network engaged in relative neutrality, but those days are no more as Big Tech is at war with conservative and pro-Trump voices.
Loomer hopes to have her ability to communicate fully restored and to make Big Tech pay for infringing on her basic rights.
Mailchimp Issues New Terms of Service Banning All ‘Misleading’ Content ‘in Their Sole Discretion’
More Orwellian censorship from Big Tech.
The popular email service, Mailchimp has released new terms of service that call for the banning of any “misleading” content “in their sole discretion,” particularly when it pertains to narratives not approved by the official media.
“We’ve updated our language to further clarify our Rules (Section 17 of STOU), which state that Mailchimp does not allow the distribution of Content that is, in our sole discretion, materially false, inaccurate, or misleading in a way that could deceive or confuse others about important events, topics, or circumstances,” the new terms of service read.
Podcaster and conservative activist Tracy Beanz drew attention to Mailchimp’s problematic change in their terms of service in a social media post:
Just received this from Mail Chimp. They won’t allow content that is misleading “in their sole discretion”. This is stasi like and isn’t going to stop. The NY Post would be banned from mass emails at this point. pic.twitter.com/EBiHGZelOj

This is occurring in response to the infamous laptop-from-hell leaks that show Hunter Biden in all kinds of compromising situations, as his years of being a crack-loving hooker fiend finally catch up with him. In an attempt to protect the fledgling presidential campaign of his father, Big Tech entities have conspired to censor the story but to no avail.
Big League Politics published a story showing how alternative news outlets are being targeted in this coordinated attack on free speech by these tech monopolies:
Twitter has exploded in an onslaught of dishonest left-wing censorship, targeting conservative-leaning media outlets for temporary bans and suspensions in the wake of a series of Hunter Biden corruption reports.
The New York Post- one of the largest newspapers in the entire country- has been locked down by Twitter since initially reporting the Hunter Biden laptop story earlier this month. The Post hasn’t tweeted since October 14th, having been silenced by the tech monopoly for almost two weeks in the heat of the presidential election.
The Gateway Pundit, one of the most viral and popular conservative news sites, was placed onto a 12-hour Twitter suspension for reporting on contents released from Hunter Biden’s laptop. GP reporter Cassandra Fairbanks confirmed that the site had been placed on a 12-hour suspension on Friday.
Big League Politics was placed on a 12-hour Twitter suspension on Saturday night, with the platform arbitrarily citing BLP’s #DetroitLeaks reporting. Remarkably, one of the tweets found to violate the Twitter rules was none other than an unedited video of a Michigan poll worker instructor speaking!
It violates the Twitter rules to record and play audio from a public elections official explaining processes and rules for poll workers, apparently.
Mainstream media “journalists” are instead frantically demanding more weak minded censorship on the part of Silicon Valley oligarchs.
Big Tech has demonstrated gross negligence by enacting the Orwellian nightmare in a desperate attempt to oust President Trump from office. Their electoral interference schemes are worse than anything the Russians could ever devise.
