As President, Donald Trump was able to overhaul the Supreme Court, giving conservatives quite the advantage on paper.
His appointment of three Supreme Court Justices in one term was a historic achievement.
And Donald Trump’s remake of the Supreme Court is still serving him well and making leftists scream.
A lawsuit regarding Donald Trump blocking critics on Twitter was recently dismissed, and conservative Justice Clarence Thomas wrote for the majority.
The majority ruled the case was moot because Trump is now out of office and has been banned from Twitter.
Justice Thomas has been an outspoken critic of Big Tech, and he said just as much in the majority opinion.
“Today’s digital platforms provide avenues for historically unprecedented amounts of speech, including speech by government actors. Also unprecedented, however, is control of so much speech in the hands of a few private parties,” Thomas said in his written comments. “We will soon have no choice but to address how our legal doctrines apply to highly concentrated, privately owned information infrastructure such as digital platforms.”
It is possible that Thomas could have just put a nail in the coffin of Big Tech censorship.
Justice Thomas wrote that social media companies are more like public accommodations, and they may not have the ability to regulate content on their platforms based on ideological viewpoints.
He went on to say that Big Tech’s Section 230, which provides immunity for website platforms from third-party content, may also be violating the First Amendment.
Justice Thomas, along with his fellow conservative Justices, has been looking for cases to rein in Big Tech for its censorship of conservative speech.
Companies such as Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube continue to remove content that doesn’t fall in line with the Democrat Party platform, and conservatives have been waiting for the court to step in.
Many hope that the court will finally tell these liberal Big Tech companies that they are not more powerful than the Bill of Rights.
It looks like Justice Thomas and the other conservative Justices just fired a warning shot at the Left, letting them know that day could be coming very soon.
