Hold onto your hats, folks, because the Supreme Court is diving headfirst into the world of online censorship with the case of Missouri v. Biden. That’s right, the Biden Administration’s shady tactics of calling on social media platforms to silence posts are finally being brought to the forefront. But, like all things in politics, there’s a catch. The Court has also lifted an injunction that was keeping the federal government’s grubby paws off these tech giants, which means Biden and his team can continue their collusion to suppress free speech. Isn’t that just peachy?

Now, let’s get to the juicy details. Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, and Neal Gorsuch, bless their conservative hearts, dared to disagree with the decision to lift the injunction. In a scathing dissent, Justice Alito shredded the majority’s argument, pointing out that the U.S. Government failed to prove any “irreparable harm” would occur if the order was enforced. But who needs evidence, right? The majority prefers to turn a blind eye to the blatant First Amendment violations happening right under their noses.

To make matters worse, the district court judge who initially ruled on this case, Terry A. Doughty, didn’t mince words. He condemned the government’s actions, likening them to an Orwellian “Ministry of Truth.” Bravo, Judge Doughty, for seeing through the fog of the Biden Administration’s dystopian power grab. Naturally, his ruling was upheld by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, because even a blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes.
Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailed, a hero among men, pointed out the government’s broad pressure campaign to coerce social media companies into censoring content they disliked. Bravo, General Bailed, for standing up against these heavy-handed tactics. Unfortunately, the majority in the Supreme Court seems more interested in turning a blind eye to the factual findings of the lower courts and giving the government free rein to control the narrative on the dominant platform of news dissemination.
Now, don’t go holding your breath just yet. The Supreme Court won’t be hearing the case until the next term, but in the meantime, the restrictions imposed on the Biden White House by Judge Doughty’s order will be lifted. Talk about rolling out the red carpet for censorship! Justice Alito rightly expressed his fear that this decision will give the government a green light to continue their heavy-handed tactics and stifle opposing viewpoints. It’s enough to make a conservative’s blood boil.
The case was initially brought by none other than Senator Eric Schmitt, a true champion of free speech. He eagerly awaits the SCOTUS hearing, recognizing it as one of the most important free speech cases in a generation. And boy, is he right. Louisiana Solicitor General Liz Murrill also chimed in, hoping that this case will finally put a stop to the government using the “government-speech doctrine” as an excuse to silence those with dissenting opinions. We’ll be eagerly watching and hoping for a victory for free speech lovers everywhere.
But folks, let’s not kid ourselves. This is just another example of the Biden Administration’s tireless efforts to suppress any views they disagree with. It’s time for conservatives to rise up, stand against this censorship machine, and fight for our First Amendment rights. Keep your eyes peeled, patriots, because this battle is far from over.
