The lawsuits against liberal outlets that go against core USA values, is accelerating. The latest was filed today by Devin Nunes.


California GOP Rep. Devin Nunes filed a major lawsuit seeking $250 million in compensatory damages and $350,000 in punitive damages against Twitter and a handful of its users on Monday, accusing the social media site of "shadow-banning conservatives" including himself to influence the 2018 elections, systematically censoring opposing viewpoints and totally "ignoring" lawful complaints of repeated abusive behavior.

In a complaint filed in Virginia state court on Monday, obtained by Fox News, Nunes claimed Twitter wanted to derail his work on the House Intelligence Committee, which he chaired until 2019, as he looked into alleged and apparent surveillance abuses by the government.

Nunes said Twitter was guilty of "knowingly hosting and monetizing content that is clearly abusive, hateful and defamatory – providing both a voice and financial incentive to the defamers – thereby facilitating defamation on its platform."

If the $250 million (quarter of a Billion!) dollar lawsuits against the Washington Post and CNN by Nick Sandmann are successful, I think all conservatives and patriots can band together, and sue the most Anti-America media outlets totally out of existence here in the USA.

Free speech needs to be protected from these effective monopolies.

I kind of hope Nunes wins this. I Hope Twitter then becomes unable to acquire liability insurance and that will stop all the tweeting, Trump will just have to go find someone else to publish his opinions. Win Win for the American people.

My personal view is that Twitter, Facebook, ATS, are PRIVATELY OWNED. As such, they can do whatever they want. If enough people don't like it, they should go build their own platform. It's horrible being a slave to any person or media platform.

I said way back when Twitter turned off President Trump's twitter account for a few hours, that the White House can develop it's own platform to speak to America and the World.

I bet the servers that contain all of Twitter and Facebook combined, don't take up much space in a building.

They lose that right when they are a monopoly and they actively block competitors from forming.

The suit is probably more for "teaching a lesson". I'm not sure who will get the money though. It's not Nunes.

Oh definitely so, if they actively block competition. Does Facebook and Twitter block competitors from starting up somehow?

There is that inconvenient "free speech" issue. Devin is such a dork just trying to shore up his declining popularity.

The first amendment isn't a license to lie.

And a privately owned website is a public space.

At least the 21 century version of it, and can be sued the same.

Waste of time. They will operate the companies at a loss using black budget bucks.

Another "trust us they are private" article.

It just seems that as long everything is solvable by money, justice will never be served. Fake money, that their CIA assets can get them unlimited amounts of, is not a punishment.

Traditionally, libel was a tort governed by state law. State courts generally follow the common law of libel, which allows recovery of damages without proof of actual harm. Under the traditional rules of libel, injury is presumed from the fact of publication. However, the U.S. Supreme Court has held that the First Amendment's protection of freedom of expression limits a State's ability to award damages in actions for libel.

And yet Twitter was openly denying peoples free speech.

Nunes has a case, and he's more than likely to win it.

Nunes implies that he's going to talk more about this during a Hannity segment this evening, on FoxNews.

A lot of little AOC's in this thread spouting the same Communist nonsense she does. Don't like something? Get the government to fix it. Hur-dur.

How is Twitter responsible for anything?

Is Twitter supposed to be responsible for balanced opinions from users?

If Twitter banned anyone that showed a conservative POV and only allowed progressives opinions to remain... isnt that up to Twitter?

I thought Trump posted on Twitter just to troll entitled progressive leftist snowflakes. Nobody with hair on their chest posts there. Do they??
