Trump to lead class-action censorship lawsuit against Facebook, Twitter, YouTube

Former President Donald Trump, a president who was the catalyst for a paradigm shift in how leaders side-stepped the mainstream media with regard to messaging their supporters, was understandably upset after Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube censored and banned him from the platforms following the Jan. 6 Capitol riots.

According to the Washington Examiner, Trump will soon make his case against what many believe was unfair censorship, as the former president announced he’ll lead a class-action lawsuit against the three Big Tech social media firms. 

The fact that First Amendment protections don’t apply — legally — to private organizations doesn’t seem to be stopping the president from, at the very least, sending a strong message to Big Tech that millions of Americans are sick and tired of the unfair censorship.

What’s going on?

The lawsuit, which also includes CEOs Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey, and Sundar Pichai, was filed by America First Policy Institute, “a nonprofit group focused on aiding Trump’s policies,” the Examiner noted.

At a recent press conference at his Bedminster, New Jersey golf club, the former president vowed to stand of for the First Amendment rights of all the conservatives and Republican leaders who’ve been unfairly targeted on various Big Tech platforms.

“We’re demanding an end to the shadow-banning, a stop to the silencing, and a stop to the blacklisting, banishing, and canceling that you know so well,” Trump said at the presser.

“Through this lawsuit, we are standing up for the freedom of speech of all Americans — Republicans, Democrats, independents, everyone,” the former president added.

What does Trump want?

Trump’s class-action lawsuit will aim to have the former president reinstated on the Big Tech platforms on which he was censored or banned.

Perhaps one of the more lofty asks of the lawsuit includes requesting that the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida overturn Section 230, a liability shield enjoyed by social media companies like Facebook and Twitter.

Notably, Trump reportedly said that even if he wins a lawsuit and the court forces the Big Tech social platforms to allow him back on, he might not even return at this point in time.

That’s likely because Trump, with such a massive and loyal base of support around the country — not to mention being one of the most popular figures covered by the media to this day — doesn’t have much of a problem in getting his statements out to the public.

While some believe that the class-action lawsuit will not end up in the victory column for the former president, it’s still vitally important that Big Tech, at the very least, finally be held accountable and forced to use time and resources to defend their extremely questionable censorship practices, especially actions taken against conservatives.
