republicans strike again. Now they are taking first amendment rights from social media.

They are regulating the internet. And violating the first amendment to do it. They are also violating section 230 of the communications decency act.

What happened to their screaming that business owners have the right to decide who they serve or do business with? That was a lie too.

They are showing that their hate for regulations was all a lie. They love regulating business just not in a responsible way.

Their beliefs are of convenience not real beliefs.

That's a first amendment violation. It won't stand.

This will likely get struck down by the courts. Also, it’s a violation of association rights, business rights, and property rights, but that don’t matter to those that only pay lip service to those principles anyway.

Explain how this is a first amendment issue. Maybe a 5th Amendment issue, but I don't see this as a taking.

Now you fucking assholes want to bitch about regulation?

Great news!

Banning a sitting President was the height of arrogance.

Fear, however, that one state (or even a group of states) cannot successfully challenge Big Tech.

The law will eventually end up at the Supreme Court, whose 9 members will be shaking in their boots if they rule the law constitutional -- so they won't!

At least they will put out some guidance on the subject. Then, states can act accordingly to make big tech behave.

While I enjoy the predictable shrieks of outrage from the usual suspects when their sacred ox is gored, the government cannot legally compel nor prevent speech and this will fail. The same will happen to New York's attempt to both compel a photographer to post speech on her web site and prevent her from posting speech on her web site. Government simply must not be allowed to monkey with speech. This is an overreach.
