The Biden Regime has filed a notice of appeal after a Trump-appointed federal judge ruled to ban certain government agencies and members of the Biden administration from working with Big Tech to silence Conservative voices on social media.
On Tuesday, Trump-appointed federal Judge Terry A. Doughty ruled to block members of the Biden administration from meeting and communicating with Big Tech companies after they were accused of colluding to control the COVID-19 narrative.
The specific parties named in the ruling that are to be banned from contact with social media companies regarding content that is posted to their platforms include the DHS, FBI, DOJ, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra, and Surgeon General Vivek Murthy.
The social media companies involved in the ruling include Google, Twitter, and Facebook.
In his ruling, Doughty called the Biden regime’s attempts to silence opposing viewpoints the “most massive attack against free speech in the United States’ history.” He added that the Biden administration has “blatantly ignored the First Amendment’s right to free speech” and that they “almost exclusively targeted conservative speech.”
After the federal judge limited the federal government’s ability to collude with Big Tech, a White House official spoke to the New York Post, insisting that the Biden administration “has promoted responsible actions to protect public health, safety, and security when confronted by challenges like a deadly pandemic and foreign attacks on our elections.”
“Our consistent view remains that social media platforms have a critical responsibility to take account of the effects their platforms are having on the American people, but make independent choices about the information they present,” the White House official added.
Now, the Biden regime is trying to appeal this ruling so that they are able to continue silencing Conservative voices, especially as the country approaches its 2024 presidential election.
On Wednesday, Biden and the other Defendants filed a notice of appeal.
If controlling the political narrative is not something that the federal government wanted to do, they wouldn’t need to appeal this ruling, especially given that there are exemptions from the communication ban, including national security threats, criminal activity, or voter suppression.
