Attorney General Ken Paxton, Texas https://twitter.com/kenpaxtontx?s=21&t=jSt5DR1iYSG6udNtmHXfvw

I just secured a MASSIVE VICTORY for the Constitution & Free Speech in fed court: #BigTech CANNOT censor the political voices of ANY Texan! The 5th Circuit “reject[s] the idea that corporations have a freewheeling First Amendment right to censor what people say.

And Ron Coleman https://twitter.com/roncoleman?s=21&t=jSt5DR1iYSG6udNtmHXfvw (For easy reading, here are the passages posted into the above tweet:)

  1. There’s no absolute First Amendment right to silence others

If the platforms were right, every email, phone call or commercial transaction would be amenable to “private” censorship.

This position is particularly obnoxious when paired with the platforms’ insistence that they can induce users to join their platforms, build them to market dominance and then censor them at will.

  1. “Today we reject the idea that corporations have a freewheeling First Amendment right to censor what people say.

Because the district court held otherwise, we reverse it’s injunction and remand for further proceedings”.

No wonder I haven’t been kicked off Facebook for another 30 days yet.
