Religious Freedom

Clinton Meme Trial Could Chill Free Speech for All Americans, Attorney Says

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is being accused of using obscure conspiracy laws to target conservatives. For example, violations of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act ordinarily would bring a year in prison. But in the last year, a host of sidewalk counselors at abortion facilities have been charged with both FACE violations and Conspiracy to Violate Civil Rights for posting to Facebook about where they would gather.

Doughty of the Western District of Louisiana on Monday denied the Biden administration’s motion to dismiss a suit brought by Republican Attorneys General Erik Schmitt of Missouri and Jeff Landry of Louisiana. Schmitt now serves in the U.S. Senate.  Plaintiffs argued the Biden administration colluded with social media companies to censor debate on multiple issues, including the 2020 presidential election and the COVID-19 pandemic. “Plaintiffs have plausibly alleged joint action, entwinement, and/or that specific features of Defendants’ actions combined to create state action,” the judge wrote in his decision. “Plaintiffs have clearly and plausibly alleged that Defendants engaged in viewpoint discrimination and prior restraints. As discussed in great detail above, Plaintiffs allege a regime of censorship that targets specific viewpoints deemed mis-, dis-, or malinformation by federal officials,” Doughty added.  “Because Plaintiffs allege that Defendants are targeting particular views taken by speakers on a specific subject, they have alleged a clear violation of the First Amendment, i.e., viewpoint discrimination. Moreover, Plaintiffs allege that Defendants, by placing bans, shadow-bans, and other forms of restrictions on Plaintiffs’ social-media accounts, are engaged in de facto prior restraints, another clear violation of the First Amendment.” ‘NO AD’ subscription for CDM!  Sign up here and support real investigative journalism and help save the republic!‘   Hope MAGA: DeSantis Fails The Test The post Judge Rules Against The Biden Administration’s Motion To Dismiss In Censorship Case appeared first on CDMedia.
