As we begin to truly settle into this new media order of the 21st century, there are some profound and powerful hurdles that we have yet to clear in 2018…many of which come to a crossroads with our own Constitution in a major way.
The most obvious concern that we have regarding our Bill of Rights in this new American century is the trampling of our First Amendment right to free speech…something so intrinsically important to America that it is literally the first thing that the Founding Fathers guaranteed to us when they risked it all for freedom.
So, now that global communication now occurs at the speed of light, all of the crooks and criminals who had been relying on the timing disparity of authority to commit their egregious acts are being forced to come up with new ways to obscure their horrific corruption. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms make it possible for Americans to upload evidence of wrongdoing to the entire world in a matter of seconds, creating a situation in which the battle of good versus evil can happen instantaneously and without a filter.
Well, that last part used to be true.
Now, thanks to the liberal left’s stranglehold on our communication tools, Twitter and others are taking a hard stance against right-wing ideologies, either burying this information pages and pages into their search algorithms, or employing internet myth busters at Snopes to promote their own ideological line.
Folks, this is nothing more than moving the goal posts of truth.
Can you imagine if every single phone call had a liberally-appointed fact checker to refute conservations, observations, and opinions? That is precisely what the gatekeepers of the internet are doing, and it is highly, undeniably unconstitutional.
Finally, someone in a position of power has recognized that.
A California judge has ruled that Twitter’s policy of banning users “at any time, for any reason or for no reason” may constitute an “unconscionable contract”, and that a lawsuit against the company brought by self-described “white advocate” Jared Taylor may proceed on that basis.
The judge rejected Twitter’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit from Taylor, who was banned by the platform in December last year.
In particular, Twitter’s argument that it has a first amendment right to ban whoever it likes from its platform, for whatever reason was rejected.
The judge ruled that Twitter’s belief that it had a right to ban users “at any time, for any reason, or no reason” could be a legally unconscionable policy on the company’s part.
Will this ruling reverse the incredibly immoral censorship of the Twitter, Google, Facebook cabal? Not likely, but it certainly will create an opportunity for Americans to discuss and research other historical instances of censorship and media corruption.
We just all need to pray that this revelation comes sooner rather than later. Remember, freedom is binary; you either have freedom or you don’t. There are no shades of liberty, and you are guaranteed freedom by the Constitution.
