Former President Donald Trump is expected to announce a class action lawsuit against Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Wednesday at his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey.
And he certainly did. Breitbart has even more about it here.
I don’t know if it will amount to anything (I am sorry I’m such a doomer) but I hope it does. My beef with Big Tech is this: if you’re going to have these rather draconian rules, they need to be applied to everyone. I don’t need to list any examples of left-wing Twitter users routinely breaking the rules and getting away with it. I also don’t even need to point out that, for example, the Christchurch shooter was livestreaming his attack on Facebook. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you know that a lot of leftist users of all the big platforms break the rules and get away with it, while on the other hand, right-wing users like me get banned for far less.
So all I really ever wanted out of these platforms is for them to be honest about their bias – that YouTube or Twitter or Facebook is for leftists only, and to apply their rules evenly.
But if any of them were to acknowledge their bias, they’d lose a lot of users, and they all depend on users to generate revenue. So this admission will likely never happen.
Trump’s banning (and I’ll go so far as to say Alex Jones’s total deplatforming applies as well) was monstrously unfair. He absolutely was NOT guilty of what they accused him of.
Such a lawsuit wouldn’t even be necessary if people just stopped using these platforms, but here we are. It should get interesting from here on out.
