Republicans Threaten Facebook Over Trump Ruling

This morning, Facebook’s independent Oversight Board ruled not to overturn former President Trump’s ban from the platform. The platform first banned the 45th president following the Jan. 6th Capitol riot but said it would revisit the ban later. Once Facebook issued its ruling Republicans were quick to criticize the overreach by the big tech platform and many called for Facebook to punished or broken up.

Empty threats. Any legislation would not pass out of Congress with the current makeup, and would face a sure veto if it did. And Comrade Zuckerberg knows it.

That is easy if they have the votes they could just declare those a public utility and then there would be some real consequences to the action they take.

I hope Facebook cancels half of its contributors and that the other half just quit and use an uncensored path sans excessive vulgarities.

you can’t really delete it. Just don’t go in there anymore. Maybe you can erase your name from it. I stay in touch with my friends and family. Other than that FB is quite boring.

If Republicans return to ascendancy AND if they develop c.o.j.o.n.e.s, they MUST take action against the ‘private’ corporate arbiters of speech who give free voice to radicals, anarchists and terrorists while silencing Americans they don’t like. No more woulda-could-shoulda: MUST. Get with the program or else. The days of reaching across the aisle to the radical Marxist Democrats are OVER.

Senator Josh Hawley commented on this when he was fist elected and is still beating the drum against it. He is really in to it. I think he has a bill written for the breaking up of Big Tech. Now what we need is a feisty Senator like Blackburn (?) who would probably bring TREASON cases against the likes of Pelosi Schiff Swallwell and the SQUAD, and, of course, Biden and Harris

Empty threats that’s all the Republicans know, it’s long past time for the Republicans to start using the Demo RAT Playbook against them! The Demo RATS love breaking every law every day and killing people and getting not even a slap on the wrist for it! Time for the Republicans to have their own Henchman to come help them out! Just get my classified military file from the CIA! I’m sure you will find me very capable of the mission needed to drop the Demo RATS to their knees trembling in fear! Sincerely Massive Dragon1, the CIA’s Green Reaper 1991! Kill ‘Em all and let GOD Sort ‘Em Out! Hooah!

in a way I see your point to start being like them, but we don’t want to bring ourselves down to their leve! we can do more by ignoring them, bc they are the insecure ones, meanwhile we are laughing behind their backs!! i want to throw rocks at them believe me, but pushing our way upwards is a better choice! hope you agree

Pretty simple every true American needs to ban Facebook also Twitter. You can still write a letter or pick up the phone and talk to your friends and family. That is how we did it in the 70’s and 80’s then the cell phones and computer shit happened. Put an end to all this by not purchasing the newest cell phone or computer. Cancel them.

Ah John, you do not know that the cell companies can leave you out of service for not wanting to up-grade the cell, didn’t you? A 3G cell won’t work anymore, minimum a 4G
is mandatory, according to Verizon, go figure!

The hard line still exist and if the phone company started to shut off the cells that might just be a blessing, think of all the car wrecks that would be avoided, the all we would have to worry about is drunks.

Facebook and others of their ilk might well find themselves out of work if they continue their snotty “do as I say” attitude! They seem to forget that there are other places continually growing that might well take over these that currently exist!

I’m pleased ot hear that the Republicans are threatening Facebook! It’s well past time that Facebook and others of their ilk are informed that their snotty attitude is not at all acceptable, and that, in fact, they are responsible to those to whom they send their messages! I have no desire to hear that Facebook dislikes President Trump or any other such statements! Whatever Facebooks role is, if it isn’t appropriate to most people, they will soon enough find themselves without any people to send their messages to!

Life is war! Those stealing our constitutional rights and to try turn us into a communist nation deserve nothing but to be declared Treasonous Traitors, our Enemy and sentenced to Death under the UCMJ! I meet all qualifications to do so and am far beyond willing to enact all of the Blood Work! The Universal Code of Military Justice does not play nice, it does not play fair it does not play at all it just kills period! Unlike civilian laws there is no way to escape its wrath for any reason!

I just read the “New York Times’ ” (NYT) version of this story and, tho’ they do the “it’s a shame, but” thing, they come down in favor of Facebook’s election to ban Trump because he “lies constantly” (direct quote). Speaking as a retired lawyer, who’s handled Constitutional cases, I find that interesting. Is the NYT saying EVERYTHING Trump says is a lie (thereby justifying a blanket ban)? And (barring the strictures of Sullivan v. NYT) does that assertion then become actionable (and/or do Facebook’s actions become challengeable) if 1% of his posts are not lies? 40%? 50%? 51%? What’s the cut-off and is it universally applied? And, conversely, does that “rule” imply that anything Facebook doesn’t ban is necessarily “true”? Or “true and accurate” (no, they are not precisely the same thing) or true to the specified quantum of truth applied to Trump’s posts? Does allowing Facebook to make these decisions mean that anything they do print/don’t ban has Facebook’s imprimatur? Does their endorsement constitute their adoption of those messages as their own? This is a very bold step (“bold”, in this case, meaning “dangerous and stupid”) for Facebook. At the very least it makes them vicariously responsible for defending anything they allow to be published and given the kind of trash that makes it onto Facebook every day, it shouldn’t be hard to find anti-Trump assertions made which are so outrageous that not even “Sullivan” can protect them (and the “Sullivan” holding is now up for review and who wants to bet that Brett Kavanaugh will not be the Justice writing the majority opinion?). Let’s face it, Facebook (and Twitter and, increasingly, YouTube) has stepped well outside the protections of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act and they may be vulnerable even if that section is not repealed or modified, which it will be. Let us hope that the media and Big Tech are on the eve of a much needed “comeuppance”. It should be a most interesting experience for all involved.

The best way to take FB down is to stop using it. Find a different platform for sharing your lives with others, and stop using FB. If you can’t find another one, find a hobby or something that you can devote all of that time you spend on FB to. I did. It’s amazing how much I can find to do without FB. The internet is CRAMMED with all kinds of other interesting and fun things to do. Cooking, Crafting, Decorating, Yard Decorations, Gardening, Fishing, Hunting, Birdwatching, the list is endless. And fun to navigate.

I say make the executives directly responsible for trafficking 14 year old girls and any other illegal act if they ban people for political reasons. Make them responsible for ALL illegal acts. If the company can track politics and ban automatically, they can easily track unlawful activities.

The Republicans are doing the right thing to threaten Facebook over a Trump ruling! Since when does Facebook have the right to sensor others? That isn’t what Facebook is supposed to be about and quite frankly, I find it extremely unacceptable behaviour! There are many who hate Trumpj and others and there are also many who consider him a worthwhile President. That isn’t what matters though! What matters is Facebook’s sensorship, which should never have happened! ‘

I quit Facebook about 6 months ago. For the last 6 months I have tried other social media sites and have found out that that there are Intelligent, courteous, free thinking people who are on these sites and I have learned a lot. Facebook and Twitter will eventually fail as Americans finally see the truth about them. Watch out the next three years will really be hard on them
