Have to love that Fox News inserts the word "alleged" in their title. Hah. He is banned from some sites, how else is one defining censorship?


Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday is announcing that he will lead a lawsuit over alleged censorship against Twitter, Facebook and Google -- three tech companies that removed him from their platforms after the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol by a mob of his supporters.

The lawsuit will be a class-action, with Trump as the lead plaintiff, claiming that he's been censored by the companies, the Associated Press reported. He will speak about the legal action from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Twitter, YouTube and Facebook each barred Trump over his false claims that the presidential election was stolen, alleging that he contributed to the violence at the Capitol on Jan. 6. YouTube is owned by Google.

Thank God that Donald Trump is standing up for all of our first amendment rights. These companies are confiscating peoples right to free speech and if we let that happen, it's goodbye America.
The 1st Amendment does give Trump the right to lie, and he tries to take advantage of that. But, the 1st Amendment does not prohibit social media outlets from not helping him to spread his lies. Bigly!!!

Dumb Donald has never read nor does he comprehend COTUS.

The First Amendment does not prevent the private sector from censoring anyone; only, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances
."

If they are allowing others to arbitrarily spread lies while censoring him, he may have a case for discrimination.

It would be good to see the courts establish that companies cant set their own terms of service. Will trump have to prove that the election was stolen ?
That would be amazing.

Neither you, nor Donald Trump, have a coherent understanding of our First Amendment rights.

Trump is a bigly wealthy businessman. He has bookoos of money thanks to his brilliance and being a "very stable genius." So, why doesn't he form his own social network so that he can spread his lies without being censored by truth seekers?

Companies are able to set their own rules of service as long as they are not enforce arbitrarily and capriciously. In this case these media outlets have been selective about who they censor. That is discrimination and it is illegal.

You have no clue what the First Amendment is about.....here, let me help you:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Farakhan and the Iranian supreme leader can post any tweet that suggests harming others, or engages in conspiracies, and it's cool with the twits at twitter.

The president of the U.S is banned for doing what? Questioning the results? It was done by NY Mayor candidate this week, did twitter ban them?

It's a clear bias. Twitter has been whacked in India now and other countries are stifling their business freedom, many of them pointing to this censoring of Trump and suggesting they don't want a company with that much power to wield it in their nation.

These social media fools are like many on the alt-left, they fear debate, open discussion and anything that lies outside the "accepted doctrine". Most people don't fear debate and free speech, most people aren't Snowflakes with an abundance of power.

They were banning people for suggesting the Wuhan Virus might be a leak, now months later they entertain the theory. It's now "acceptable" as their masters said it can be.

That is not the approach America used to lead the globe. We need a strong, vibrant American democracy.
