Freedom Watch, Inc. and Laura Loomer
Petitioners
v.
Google, Inc., Facebook, Inc., Apple, Inc., and Twitter, Inc.
Respondents

STATEMENT OF THE CASE
Petitioners brought this suit against Respondents, all of whom are
major technology and social media corporations, in response to their
well-documented and publicized anti-competitive pattern and practice
of suppressing and censoring conservative content. The Amended
Complaint sets forth in extreme detail news publications which include
admissions from employees employed by Respondents that such
targeted suppression and censorship was, indeed, occurring. For
example, this includes admissions, inter alia, from employees of

Respondent Facebook that their conduct had a chilling anti-competitive
effect on conservative news.” App. 008.
As set forth below, Respondents’ conduct violates not only the
Constitution, but also numerous federal and state statutes.
Respondents’ status as large and influential technology corporations,
who can pay for and employ well-funded lobbyists to do their bidding,
simply cannot shield them from liability in this regard. They must be
held to the same level playing field as everyone else.
This Amended Complaint is centered upon Respondents’
“conspiracy to intentionally and willfully suppress politically
conservative content,” App. 004, and the resulting severe damages that
this conspiracy has had on Freedom Watch and Ms. Loomer, both of
whom are prominent conservative organizations/figures who rely on
social media platforms to “to inform the public about [their]
conservative advocacy and to raise the funds through donations to
further its public advocacy and mission.” App. 011. The aim of this
conspiracy to use anti-competitive means to suppress politically
conservative content was to “take down President Donald Trump and

his administration with the intent and purpose to have installed leftist
government in the nation’s capital and the 50 states.” App. 017.
The Amended Complaint sets forth in detail how Respondents
have acted anticompetitively to suppress and censor conservative
content.

The Dems will certainly try. The Repubs will hopefully filibuster. This is one reason why we're hearing "end the filibuster" bleatings from the left.

If there's any type of government intervention with regard to Big Tech, it will only work against the public.

As long as alternatives are allowed to exist, Big Tech can censor all they like. They haven't just been censoring for the last couple years, they've been doing it for 2 decades to varying degrees. When the Iraq War was being gunned up, Al Jazeera became inaccessible.

Basically, nobody should be demanding that a criminal group of fucks change their behavior. Just stop using their damned product.

Harry Reid killed the filibuster for SCOTUS nominees a while ago, remember? That is how Trump was able to get his picks through the Senate.

I think some items can still be filibustered, tho? Senate voted 298 times for "cloture" last year.
