(AmericanProsperity.com) – The United States Supreme Court announced on October 20 it agreed to hear the case Murthy v. Missouri to determine whether the US federal government can legally collude with big tech companies to censor speech on their platforms. The case was previously named Missouri v Biden.
This announcement included a temporary halting of a court order that prevented the Biden administration from collaborating with some of the most powerful tech companies to encourage them to take down some specific content. Different reports revealed these were criticism of Hunter Biden’s business dealings, opposition to the COVID vaccines and quarantines, and questions about the integrity and credibility of the 2020 presidential elections.
The Supreme Court’s announcement means that President Joe Biden and the White House can keep working with these tech firms on censorship for months until the case is formally heard and has a final verdict. Victims of this censorship include The Gateway Pundit’s editor-in-chief Jim Hoft, Democratic presidential candidate Robert Kennedy Jr, and numerous health experts such as Jay Bhattacharya and Martin Kulldorff. Each one of them claimed their content was removed from social media after Biden officials allegedly flagged their posts.
The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals included the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency -also known as CISA- in a list of government agencies and entities that are prohibited from collaborating with big tech firms. Other entities and agencies include the FBI, the US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and even the White House.
Justices Neil Gorsuch, Samuel Alito, and Clarence Thomas disagreed with the stay approval, as they said this was “highly disturbing.” Even when court rulings revealed and confirmed a “coordinated campaign” between big tech firms and government officials, the Supreme Court allowed this scheme to continue.
In a statement, Justice Alito wrote that the government’s decision to censor private speech on social media was “antithetical” to the United States’ “democratic form of government.”
