Former President Donald Trump announced today the launch of a class action lawsuit against Twitter and its CEO Jack Dorsey, Facebook and its CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and Google LLC and its CEO Sundar Pichai. He made the announcement at his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey.

“We’re demanding an end to the shadowbanning, a stop to the silencing, and a stop to the blacklisting, banishing and canceling that you know so well,” Trump said.

The litigants will be represented by the America First Policy Institute, a group led by Brooke Rollins and Linda McMahon, and advised by Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.

“Protected by an outdated and misinterpreted Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, these elites and their firms ride roughshod over some of the most fundamental American rights: the right to speak, the right to be heard, and the right to democratic representation. This lawsuit is not the end of that fight: it is a beginning. It’s a fight AFPI is committed to seeing through. AFPI will continue to support everyday Americans’ efforts to hold Big Tech accountable,” the institute announced.

All Americans who have been censored by Big Tech are welcome to share their stories with the institute at  TakeOnBigTech.com.

“There’s not much precedent for an American President taking major-media corporations to court — nor is there much precedent for an American President engaging the judiciary to shape the landscape of American freedoms after his Presidency,” said Rollins in a statement. “President Trump often remarked that if Big Tech is out to get him, it’s because they’re out to get the American people — and he was just standing in the way. The actions of the Big Tech firms we’re taking to court illustrate the point perfectly. What they’ve done, what they’ve wrought in the past few years staggers the imagination.”

Rollins said all Americans need Trump to win the lawsuit, “not for what it will mean for him, but for what it will mean for every American man, woman, and child.”

“Things have changed over the past several years, and the First Amendment rights of all Americans are on the line in this case. The law and Constitution are on our side. America is the great country that it is because our Constitution protects our freedoms, including freedom from censorship – this lawsuit ensures that those rights are properly defended,” said Pam Bondi, who is serving as legal counsel for the organization.

In his announcement, broadcast by Right Side Media, Trump said he had heard from many people who had been blocked or censored by the Big Tech companies.

  1. Alex Jones was the Canary in this proverbial coal mine, and nobody cared:
    .
    First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.
    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
    .
    Funny how this stuff works. #project2030

    • …and there was no one left to speak for me.
      So finally you had to speak for yourself? Such a burden!
      I hope you found something more cogent to say than anything Alex Jones had. To his credit, when asked about the outrageous theories he espoused, he admitted they were made up.
      The results of the Reagan/Trump Eras are now in. Glib platitudes and fatuous theories triumph during the times we put third rate celebrities in the White House.

      • …….or, idiots, buffoons, America haters, and dead brains…. (Carter, Clinton, Obama, Biden).

      • So, in your world, complete and utter censorship/cancelation is fine, if the offender is deemed to have been lying?
        .
        I’d guess, you couldn’t give me 3 media sources (or politicians) you admire or trust who haven’t lied *on the record* within the past 5 years. Go for it, let’s play the cancelation game.

          • Under todays woke leftists, Martin Niemöller would have been canceled, and removed from any and and all public discord. Let’s see how long it takes them to locate the Holocaust memorial and try to destroy it. All because of his poem.

  2. IMHO, election fraud always has and and always will exist – there are fraud charges currently pending against one of our former legislators – but the more serious issue is social media’s coordination with the Left to thwart Republicans. Of course if we could just take away the guns everything would be rainbows and unicorns – in the Gulag.

  3. I wonder if the ADN will report when Trump visits Alaska to support Kelly T? Lisa’s dad, the feeble-minded Frankie, wasn’t too kind to John Binkley during the 2006 governor’s race……..asking Binkley about his “rather thin resume.” OUCH! The Murkowskis have some nerve.

  4. I think the social media tools people are using are dying. People are getting tired if they hadn’t already left social media. People will be communicating differently 6 years later, things like Facebook won’t be so widely used. Maybe people will start using more Podcasts for recieving “news” about people and events.

  5. I’m with Trump on this one, but one cannot deny that these totalitarian big tech monopolies would not exist if so many millions of stupid and complacent Americans did not use their platforms, and hand their freedom and privacy over to them. I myself have never used Google, Twitter, Facebook, and my life is all the richer as a result.

    • These “totalitarian big tech monopolies’ are private, capitalistic enterprises, not governmental agencies, that make the rules for participating on their private platforms. They are not required to put anything up they don’t want. That’s also the way FOX rolls. No one is telling them they are violating free speech when they don’t air certain points of view with which they disagree.
      Trump is whining because he can’t get his way. He was given several chances to clean up his act, but did he listen? Now he’s begging for money to support his lame lawsuit. Back to being the small minded grifter (bilking his followers so he doesn’t have to pay for anything himself), that he was before he became…gak…President.

      • The bigger you are the more you have to watch your step. Big tech has been stomping around carelessly and callously, freely using my demographic information, swaying the conversations they disagree with, and implementing a forced compliance. No longer do they support the ideals of American freedom and liberty.

      • Sorry Greg no entity can supercede the Constitution. Plus a great case can be made by just listing the items censored in the past year that reflected the policy of the goverment, which today are accepted and no longer censored. It indicates a relationship that makes them look like agents of the goverment. It’s overreach of 230, not the lewd behaviors they should be monitoring. May not get thru the first court but it has the legs to go to the supreme court.

      • Greg R – spoken like a true Fascist! Read up on Section 230 before you publicly show your ignorance.

      • Not sure, to be sure! But I have seen no evidence of Suzanne having infringed on my privacy or having sold any of my personal information, whereas the evidence for the totalitarian Big Tech monopolies doing so, and much more, and freely admitting it, is obvious and incontrovertible.

  6. The bad news for the political right. Trump lost to a mentally impaired clown.

    The good news for the political right. As a private citizen Trump is unrestrained by swamp politics and can act accordingly.

  7. Good, send a barrage of lawsuits to keep them scrambling. It would be nice to see these companies broken up. They have a monopoly on communication. With the exception of writing letters, we are limited as far as alternatives to these firms.

  8. Looking forward to the day when people highly value the US Constitution and each other’s liberties. This dark patch is for illustrative purposes only. Constitutional unalienable rights are given by God. Not government.

  9. Lawsuit going nowhere. Just another ploy to scam money from all-too-compliant sycophants. Trump lost—big time— whether you like it or not. The My Pillow guy is wrong. Trump will not be reinstated in August. Alaska Republicans should follow the advice I gave as a member of the Republican state central committee in 2016. Jettison the loser and move on. He can win the nomination, but he will lose the election…..again….by an even wider margin. Even Republicans don’t like insurrectionists.
