Foreign Leaders Shocked at Twitter and Facebook Booting Trump

Germany and France voiced their objections (Bloomberg). And there were more (Red State). From the Wall Street Journal: Google, Facebook and Twitter should be treated as state actors under existing legal doctrines. Using a combination of statutory inducements and regulatory threats, Congress has co-opted Silicon Valley to do through the back door what government cannot directly accomplish under the Constitution. It is “axiomatic,” the Supreme Court held in Norwood v. Harrison (1973), that the government “may not induce, encourage or promote private persons to accomplish what it is constitutionally forbidden to accomplish.” That’s what Congress did by enacting Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act, which not only permits tech companies to censor constitutionally protected speech but immunizes them from liability if they do so (WSJ). Meanwhile, a Hill articled headline screams “Nearly 6,000 lawyers and law students call for disbarment proceedings against Cruz and Hawley” (The Hill). From Dinesh D’Souza: At first I thought “6,000 lawyers, whoa.” Then I read “and law students” and I began to laugh rather loudly (Twitter). The man who made a career being vile and disgusting, Sacha Baron Cohen, wants YouTube to ban Trump (Daily Wire). Matt Walsh looks at the intense hypocrisy of the left on this issue (Daily Wire).

Once again the Democrats, media and Big Tech are trying to overreach. They are following the Alinsky tactic of demonizing their opponents through repetition and hyperbole applied to accusations describing their self-same behavior.

Where's the ACLU? Has the Southern Poverty Law Center classified them as hate groups?
