Communications Decency Act - Section 230 - legislation designed suppress free speech
Updated: May 16, 2021
May 16, 2021: Mark L. Wolf is a federal judge that was appointed by Ronald Reagan and he appears to be the first judge in 20 years willing to examine the obvious abuse of the section 230 of the CDA by the social networking platforms including Twitter and Facebook. Read the image above for a quick explanation of this legislation. CDA = Communications Decency Act
There have been many examples of abuse of section 230 but, so far only one person has been able to frame the argument in a way that has captured the interest of a federal judge. Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai, inventor of email, ran for US Senate in Massachusetts as a Republican and made allegations of proven voter fraud on twitter platform. His tweets were quickly deleted because the Massachusetts Secretary of State’s office instructed Twitter to do so. Dr. Ayyadurai alleged that his federal civil rights were violated when the government silenced his political speech in order to affect an election which is a big problem for Twitter. Twitter and the Massachusetts Secretary of State acted as co-conspirators in a bid to affect the outcome of an election.
Charles Johnson (Conservative Journalist), James O'Keefe (Project Veritas) and Jim Hoft (The Gateway Pundit) have all been banned from Twitter due to Twitters discriminatory policies against non-marxists. These are just a few examples but, tens thousands of less famous people have been removed from twitter simply for arguing against marxist-leninist views.
Legal experts believe that Judge Wolf has signaled that he is taking the proceedings very seriously because he quoted two legal cases that would appear to argue that twitter is not acting as a private company. EA will continue to follow and comment on this topic as it unfolds.
