Look, he is finally mad enough to try to do something about the problem after spending four years monitoring the situation while Mark Zuckerberg stroked his ego.
“Former President Donald Trump, who has complained about censorship by social media giants, filed class action lawsuits Wednesday against Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Google Sundar Pichai.
Why it matters: It’s the latest escalation in Trump’s yearslong battle with Twitter and Facebook over free speech and censorship. Trump is completely banned from Twitter and is banned from Facebook for another two years.
Details: Trump announced at an 11 a.m. press conference Wednesday that he is the lead class representative in a lawsuit being filed with the Southern District of Florida.
The filing, Trump said, seeks immediate injunctive relief to allow the prompt restoration his social media accounts. He also said he is asking the court to impose “punitive damages” on the three social media giants.
Trump’s legal effort is supported by the America First Policy Institute (AFPI), a non-profit focused on perpetuating Trump’s policies, through a new legal entity called the Constitutional Litigation Partnership.
AFPI’s president and CEO and board chair, former Trump officials Linda McMahon and Brooke Rollins, accompanied him during the announcement.
Class action lawsuits would enable Trump to sue the tech CEOs on behalf of a broader group of people that he argues have been censored by biased policies. …”
Well anyway, I hope he succeeds.
It is a class action lawsuit which would have broader implications. I don’t have much confidence in lawsuits though given that a federal judge recently struck down Florida’s crackdown on Big Tech which was signed into law by Gov. Ron DeSantis. David French has also warned that the conservative legal movement is on a collision course with the New Right over protecting CRT and Big Tech’s free speech rights. Censorship, CRT and Drag Queen Story Hour are “blessings of liberty.”
