I am pretty sure no one ever thought the government censoring speech was legal in the first place; the government was just doing it and there was no one to stop them.
So what does a court ruling saying “this obviously illegal thing you are doing is illegal” mean? Basically nothing.
It’s interesting, but that’s all.
Whatever you think of Elon Musk – and I personally think he’s a fat retard who is bad at video games and censors well-meaning people for no good reason – it was the release of the Twitter Files that allowed this to happen.
That was really the only way the government was ever going to get caught – for a billionaire to offer a deal that the board couldn’t refuse to buy Twitter and take it private, and then to publicly dump the company’s emails with the FBI. If that wouldn’t have happened, this would have just gone on forever and ever and ever.
Sadly, it is still going to go on forever. The government is no doubt still telling Facebook what to do and they don’t even have to tell Google – Google censors because they like it.
Meanwhile, the government is working to bring down or otherwise neutralize Elon Musk. They’ve now brought in the – *checks notes* – the Prime Minister of Israel to help with that project. And to play the “good cop,” no less! Who would have thought! Bibi is the good cop!
Netanyahu did an interview with Musk and pumped him up as a great hero, then asked him to censor anti-Semitism “within the confines of the First Amendment.”

No one has any idea what that means. It’s like asking someone to float up into the sky “within the confines of gravity.” The First Amendment allows hate speech. Period. End of story. There is no ambiguity there.
Bibi should have an interpol red notice for attempting to undermine the US Constitution through espionage and sabotage.
Anyway, whether Musk is destroyed or he cracks is almost irrelevant, because Andrew Anglin and Nick Fuentes are already banned from Twitter. We’re the only two famous political commentators that matter at all, because we are the only two people who tell the whole truth, and nothing but.
We’re like Double Dragon (I’m Billy).
If the Lee Brothers didn’t exist, no one would have stopped the Black Dragons. The Black Dragons (Jews, in this analogy) would have had their way with the city, and no one would have saved Marian (Kathy Zhu, in this story, which me and Nick will have to fight over after we defeat the Black Dragon/Jews).
The game is already lost, because me and Nick are not allowed on.
This ruling means nothing.
The libs remain un-owned, while Elon contemplates suicide.
The media is focusing on the fact that it was illegal to censor information about the virus (hoax) and vaccine (hoax), but the censorship program, as we all know, was much bigger.
A federal court of appeals ruled earlier this month that the White House, surgeon general, CDC and FBI “likely violated the First Amendment” by exerting a pressure campaign on social media companies to censor COVID-19 skeptics — including Stanford epidemiologist Dr. Jay Bhattacharya.
“I think this ruling is akin to the second Enlightenment,” Bhattacharya told The Post. “It’s a ruling that says there’s a democracy of ideas. The issue is not whether the ideas are wrong or right. The question is who gets to control what ideas are expressed in the public square?”
The court ordered that the Biden administration and other federal agencies “shall take no actions, formal or informal, directly or indirectly” to coerce social media companies “to remove, delete, suppress or reduce” free speech.
“We were just acting as scientists, but almost immediately we were censored,” said Bhattacharya, director of Stanford’s Center for Demography and Economics of Health and Aging. “Google de-boosted us. Our Facebook page was removed. It was just a crazy time.
“The kinds of things that the federal government was telling social media companies to censor included us — along with millions of other posts from countless other people who were criticizing government COVID policy,” he added.
A New Orleans-based three-judge panel found that the federal government “likely coerced or significantly encouraged social-media platforms to moderate content” by vaguely threatening adverse regulatory consequences if social media companies did not suppress certain viewpoints on the pandemic.
Subsequent reporting from Elon Musk’s so-called Twitter Files — internal documents and communications released by Musk, after he bought the platform, to expose Twitter’s inner workings — revealed that Bhattachrya’s profile was being suppressed on the platform.
People should be in prison for this. This isn’t some minor infraction. Joe Biden should be impeached and then charged with sedition.
There is zero chance that this was also not happening before – in particular, against me. How did I get kicked off a domain in Rwanda (.rw), for example? Think about it. The only possible way that happened is that the State Department threatened or bribed them.
Go back and look at the history of me being censored, starting in 2017. The idea that all of these companies, which had never censored before, decided that because I made a joke about a fat woman who died, I was beyond the pale, and the entire structure of the internet had to change to punish me. This was clearly coming from the government.
Here’s the fat joke, by the way: Heather Heyer: Woman Killed in Road Rage Incident was a Fat, Childless 32-Year-Old Slut
You can go read that and see if you think it was game-changingly evil.
It obviously was not.
Obviously, I was a threat, because I was insanely popular, reaching tens or hundreds of millions of people with a very funny and very popular message, and the government decided that they could not contend with me being allowed to spread my message with impunity.
This was during the Trump Administration, by the way. So who was responsible? Who was making these calls?
Why is there no investigation?
Those are all rhetorical questions.
The government gets caught doing illegal stuff all the time. So far, nothing has ever happened as a result. They have never stopped doing illegal things because they were caught.
Remember Edward Snowden? Bulk data collection from American citizens with no warrant by the NSA? Something which everyone admitted was totally illegal?
No one went to jail and they’re still doing it to this day.
So what is even the point?
In a democracy, the government has an absolute ability to do whatever they want to you, and you have no ability to petition grievances. They just tell you to vote, knowing full well that by voting, you are giving written, legal consent for the government to do whatever they want to you. It’s a Mephistopheles type situation.
When you vote, you are entering into a blood contract with a demon, giving it authority over you.
Leaders should be ordained by God, not by mobs.
This situation is completely hopeless. Our only hope is that the US empire collapses.
We are not going to get free speech, we are not going to vote our way into a better situation.
We are very, very doomed.
Someone should have done something about this a long time ago.
