Laura Loomer’s Free Speech Case Against the Tech Giants Hits the Supreme Court on Friday

SCOTUS will determine whether or not to hear the case.

Published

The Supreme Court will consider a landmark free speech lawsuit filed by banished journalist Laura Loomer against the tech companies who unlawfully conspired to deprive her of her rights.

The case, which was launched by Laura Loomer and Freedom Watch, intends to hold Google, Apple, Facebook, and Twitter accountable for war against the 1st Amendment of the Constitution. The lawsuit also contends that these Big Tech monopolies violated the Sherman Antitrust Act and the District of Columbia Human Rights Act.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upheld the dismissal of the suit last year, but Loomer has since appealed it to the Supreme Court. She will have at least one judge who sympathizes with her legal argument as Justice Clarence Thomas has indicated major concerns with Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, a government-granted exemption from publisher liabilities allowing tech giants to enact Big Brother censorship.

“Extending §230 immunity beyond the natural reading of the text can have serious consequences,” Thomas wrote in a filing last year.

“Without the benefit of briefing on the merits, we need not decide today the correct interpretation of §230. But in an appropriate case, it behooves us to do so,” he concluded.

Big League Politics has reported about Loomer’s legal challenge against Big Tech hegemony since its inception:

Banished journalist and Congressional candidate Laura Loomer intends to take her landmark free speech lawsuit against the Silicon Valley monoliths all the way to the Supreme Court.

A three-judge panel ruled that Big Tech can steamroll the rights of Loomer and other individuals deemed guilty of wrong-think.

“Freedom Watch argues that we should infer an agreement primarily from the Platforms’ parallel behavior, as each company purportedly refused to provide certain services to Freedom Watch. But, as the district court explained, parallel conduct alone cannot support a claim under the Sherman Act,” the three-judge panel decided.

“In general, the First Amendment ‘prohibits only governmental abridgment of speech,’” the judges explained in their ruling, referencing the Manhattan Community Access Corp. vs. Halleck case.

Despite the fact that Big Tech entities receive special privileges from the federal government in order to operate, they were deemed non-state actors in this court ruling. They can discriminate, act as Big Brother, impose Orwellian sanctions, and even potentially influence elections with their monopoly power, according to the inexplicable court ruling.

Loomer believes that the decision is bogus and motivated by partisan politics. She and her legal counsel intend to take the case all the way up to the Supreme Court, hoping that the nation’s highest court will defend freedom of speech in America.

“My lawyer and I are confident of success going en banc to the full court. Today’s decision is clearly politically motivated, given the fact the DC Circuit’s ruling comes the same day President Trump said his justice department would take serious action against these same Big Tech giants I have sued for censoring conservatives. There’s no such thing as a coincidence. We are prepared to take this all the way to the Supreme Court,” she said on Wednesday.

Loomer continues to fight for digital freedom despite being targeted by the most powerful corporate giants in world history. The conservative justices on the SCOTUS can prove their worth beginning on Friday when her case is considered.

Amazon Updates App Icon After People Complain That It Reminded Them of Adolf Hitler

The left is obsessed with Nazis.

Published

Amazon has changed the logo of its smartphone app after people said that it reminded them of Adolf Hitler.

The original logo (on the left in the image above) depicted a piece of blue tape above the classic smile arrow. Amazon introduced it in January to replace the image of a shopping cart.

Some people—presumably leftists, because no one else is as obsessed with Nazis as them—claimed on Twitter that the combination of the smile and the tape looked too much like Hitler’s toothbrush mustache.

This is the second time in recent days that leftists have seen Nazi-related imagery where there is none. Over this past weekend Twitter blew up after some claimed that CPAC’s stage setup resembled the Odal rune. Aside from the ridiculousness of the idea that CPAC intentionally shaped it like the Odal rune, the rune is not a Nazi symbol per se. The Scandinavians of late antiquity and the early Middle Ages used runes as letters of their alphabet. The Odal rune only became a symbol after a couple of SS divisions appropriated it as such.

Back in June Big League Politics reported how Facebook cited “Nazi symbolism” as an excuse to justify removing Trump campaign ads that attacked Antifa:

Facebook has censored political advertisements from President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and the Trump campaign targeting the ANTIFA domestic terrorist group.

The social media giant is claiming that the ads were guilty of “violating our policy against organized hate.” They claim that the campaign was using symbols from Nazi Germany, which is not quite accurate.

“Our policy prohibits using a banned hate group’s symbol to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or discusses the symbol,” a spokesperson from Facebook wrote.

[…]

However, the Trump campaign pointed out in response to the censorship that the inverted red triangle symbol is “widely used by antifa.” A fact check confirms that the Trump campaign is telling the truth about the symbol’s use.

Leftists like to condemn conservatives who dabble in “conspiracy theories” yet at the same time claim to see Nazis and Nazism everywhere they look. Very deluded behavior.
