(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – A civil-rights organization has now filed a lawsuit against the federal government concerning its partnering with social media companies in order to “monitor and censor” online support groups for individuals who have suffered from injuries that were caused by COVID-19 vaccines. These kinds of groups obviously pose a problem for the government since they pushed the jab on everyone, making them responsible for the many deaths and side effects people suffered from taking the shot.
According to WND, there has been a huge multitude of complications caused by the mRNA vaccines, which include symptoms like fever, fatigue, muscle pain, chills, nausea, headache, and more serious problems like myocarditis and pericarditis.
The group that filed the lawsuit, the New Civil Liberties Alliance, stated that it has some deep concerns about how the federal government is working with social media companies and the Stanford Internet Observatory’s Virality Project.
“This sprawling censorship enterprise has combined the efforts of numerous federal agencies and government actors – including within the White House – to coerce and induce social media platforms to censor, suppress, and label as ‘misinformation’ speech expressed by those who have suffered vaccine-related injuries,” the organization went on to say.
“The case, Brianne Dressen, et al. v. Rob Flaherty, et al., urges a federal court in Texas to order a halt to ‘this government-sponsored censorship and declare this state action unlawful to prevent these defendants from further censoring such free speech and free association,’” WND reported.
Casey Norman, who is serving as litigation counsel, said, “The government claims that it suppresses so-called misinformation for the sake of public safety and welfare. It is the government’s view that Americans cannot be trusted with their own minds and must be shielded at all costs from mis-, dis-, and malinformation – which is whatever the government deems it to be. Fortunately, the First Amendment says otherwise: the government may neither censor our clients nor induce others to do so.”
The group is representing the following individuals: Brianne Dressen, Shaun Barcavage, Kristi Dobbs, Nikki Holland, Suzanna Newell, and Ernest Ramirez. The only one not to suffer vaccine injuries directly is Ramirez.
“To be clear, these plaintiffs are not anti-vaxxers. Ms. Dressen, for example, was injured by the AstraZeneca vaccine after she volunteered to participate in vaccine trials for that vaccine. Mr. Ramirez received a Moderna vaccine himself without incident but then lost his 16-year-old son to vaccine-induced cardiac arrest five days after Ernest, Jr. received the Pfizer vaccine. While such vaccine injuries may be rare, further research is necessary to establish the incidence of serious, even fatal, side effects for these still-new vaccines,” the NCLA remarked, “Meanwhile, the First Amendment forbids defendants from suppressing the speech and association rights of innocent victims who are just seeking to commiserate with other sufferers.”
Each of the plaintiffs have been censored on social media after sharing their own personal experiences with the jab, sharing advice with each other, medical research, and giving support to other individuals who were harmed by the vaccine.
“For posting about their personal experiences and trying to connect with others in the vaccine-injured community, plaintiffs’ speech has repeatedly been flagged as misinformation or removed entirely. Their social media accounts are at constant risk of being frozen or disabled just for engaging with other users in private support groups open only to vaccine-injured individuals and sharing perspectives the government deems misinformation,” the organization explained.
The NCLA then broke down how the First Amendment provides protection for conversations, “even if they were spreading false information.”
The team asserted that the private speech of those they represent or picking winners and losers in the marketplace of ideas is not a right afforded to the federal government. Amen to that!
“Nor may the government induce, encourage, or promote private persons to accomplish what it is constitutionally forbidden to accomplish – that is, censor truthful speech about vaccine injuries. But that is just what the federal government has been doing as it chips away at the First Amendment’s guarantee of free speech and replaces it with government-induced censorship,” the legal team continued.
“Americans injured by experimentally approved COVID vaccines are being deplatformed, silenced, suppressed, defamed and cancelled by their own government for reaching out to others simply to share and receive information critical to their physical and mental well-being. Government actors have bullied, threatened and coerced social media companies to strip these plaintiffs of their First Amendment rights of association and speech. Suppression of speech critical of the government by the very government actors mandating the vaccine is frightening. NCLA’s lawsuit seeks to restore these plaintiffs’ civil liberties and the free flow of information guaranteed by the First Amendment for all Americans. We must never again lose our constitutional bearings in a pandemic,” Peggy Little, a senior counsel for NCLA, eloquently noted.
The censorship of ideas is most definitely not the role of the government. Individuals are responsible for their own safety and health, and that includes checking and verifying the information they hear. Our government’s job is to basically keep itself out of our business so we can live our own lives and make our own decisions.
The elite in the federal government, which seems to be comprised mostly of progressives, wish to put the power in the hands of elites who want power, money, and control over the citizens of this country. That must not be allowed.
