WARNING Facebook users

The US Supreme Court in Packingham v. North Carolina ruled that States cannot limit access to social media.

The US Supreme Court in 1939 “public forum doctrine” in Hague v. CIO ruled that the public square, even if privately owned, cannot restrict free speech.

Facebook claims to be a public forum. It is privately owned, just like the town square in the company town that the Supreme Court prohibited the owner from restricting free speech.

Facebook users now get this warning:

“We also can remove or restrict access to your content, services or information if we determine that doing so is reasonably necessary to avoid or mitigate adverse legal or regulatory impacts to Facebook.”

What does this mean to you?

Since Zuckerberg testified to Congress that Facebook does NOT systematically censor conservative content. We must assume that he does not want to be put in prison for perjury (like General Flynn or Roger Stone).

Facebook will severely restrict access, but not censor them.
