Tell Me Again. Who's the Real Threat to Democracy??

State Media Laments Biden Government's Restricted
 Censorship Privileges on Free Speech

The State Media has been in meltdown again every since Judge Terry A. Doughty of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana issued an injunction Tuesday ruling the Biden administration and other federal agencies suppressed free speech and ordered to stop the government from colluding with social media (as the Twitter files clearly proved) by stripping Americans’ of their right to free speech.

Doughty ruled members of the Biden administration, including officials with the FBI, DOJ, Biden WH and Department of Health and Human Services could not communicate with social media companies for “the purpose of urging, encouraging, pressuring, or inducing in any manner the removal, deletion, suppression, or reduction of content containing protected free speech.”

In expected due course, the usual talking heads on CNN, MSNBC, CNBC and elsewhere who you would expect to defend free speech instead formed up for a media circle jerk and defend Biden and their government 'god of Big Brother', lamenting the ruling Wednesday by calling it "far reaching" and "Dramatic". 

Tulane University history Professor Walter Isaacson, CEO of the controversial 'Aspen Institute', said on MSNBC’s Squinty & Meat Puppet in the Morning, the decision “goes too far,” while also saying the “Twitter Files” showed the government and big tech companies did take it “a bit far.” Gee, ya think?

NBC’s Ryan Reilly argued the real problem is the FBI is NOT policing social media enough.

NBC's Ryan Nobles, speaking on a network known for pushing hoaxes and misinformation, questioning whether “elections could be undermined” without censorship of alleged disinformation.

Really Mr. Nobles?? On MSNBC no less?

The New York Times raised a similar argument, painting the ruling protecting free speech as one that hurts the government’s ability to protect Americans from alleged disinformation.

Like the incomparable Lieutenant Columbo, I have just one more question for these supposed constitutional experts. Just where in the constitution does the government hold the scepter of truth (a purveyor  of propaganda itself) have the right to suppress free speech, on the corner soap box or social media?

I think the First Amendment makes it clear. FJB
