Some People Still Just Don't Get That Whole 1st Amendment Thing

Let me make a prediction here.
This will go absolutely nowhere.

Families of San Bernardino attack victims accuse Facebook, Google and Twitter of aiding terrorism in lawsuit

Relatives of the victims of the San Bernardino terrorist attack filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday against Twitter, Google and Facebook, accusing the tech giants of knowingly supporting Islamic State and its extremist agenda.

The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California contends the three companies have allowed Islamic State to build an outsize online presence and propagate its extremist beliefs, drawing recruits and promoting attacks such as the Dec. 2, 2015, shooting at the Inland Regional Center.

The attack by Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, left 14 people dead, including Sierra Clayborn, Tin Nguyen and Nicholas Thalasinos, whose family members filed the suit. Twenty-two others were injured in the shooting.

The family members say in their lawsuit that the social media companies’ platforms amounted to material support to Islamic State and that the online content posted there fueled the radicalization of Malik and Farook.

Fuck, if they want to go after someone for that enabling shit they should go straight to the top with it.

  1. They get the first amendment, they're just trying to take it down.

    It's one of the driving purposes of the left today.

  2. If they can show that Twitter FB et.al are allowing islamic and leftist violence to be advertised and espoused while conservative speech and ideals are censored then these companies won't be able to hide behind "freedom of speech". And I suspect a good lawyer can show this thus negating any First Amendment defense.
