News That Will Drive You To Drink

Happy Hour News

Guys, you know how Wingnuttia is always going on about how they and they alone are being censored and demanding that the gubmint do sumpin’ about it (despite the gubmint cannot do anything about it because of that pesky First Amendment)?

Well, enter the Gret Stet of Texas America’s Lab for Bad Policy:

A Texas law aimed at punishing social media companies if they “censor” users will go into effect for now, a three-person panel of federal appeals court judges ruled on Wednesday.

The law allows users to sue a social media company if they are blocked from posting or have their posts removed, which civil liberties experts and tech advocates argue would force companies to let problematic speech such as hate and misinformation stay up on their platforms, Protocol reports.

Wednesday’s decision was supported by two unnamed judges who did not immediately provide the court’s reasoning.

  1. Given the current state of the Federal Judiciary, I and not at all sanguine about this being knocked down. Top to bottom the R’s seem to be all-in on fascism, and have no doubt this is absolutely a fascist move.

    PoliticsGirl always rocks. As BDR said above the party of small government has transmogrified (sans the humor or magic) into the party of fascism. Not sure why they had to go there, but with the majority of American voters enraged about the loss of Roe v wade maybe 2022 is when we boot them out of our government…

    Yeah. I’m an asshole, but burning the flag is the only proper way to dispose of it, as a throw away line it loses constantly. Why keep using it?

    Nothing to see here. We are simply witnessing Constitutional republicans testing the waters to see how far they get this time around.
