Most people believe that there is no real way to fight against Facebook’s fascistic censoring of speech and opinion in its platform because Facebook aka Fascistbook is a private, corporate entity. Fortunately and surprisingly, this is NOT legally true and there is case law to back that up.
The US Supreme Court’s ruling in Marsh v. Alabama, 326 U.S. 501 (1946) that when a corporation is, in essence the public square and functions as such, it must abide by the same restrictions as the State insofar as Constitutional law is concerned. And that Facebook is, in fact, operating in that manner is the held opinion of the SCOTUS, as stated in Packingham v. North Carolina, 582 U.S. _ (2017).
Social media allows users to gain access to information and communicate with one another on any subject that might come to mind. With one broad stroke, North Carolina bars access to what for many are the principal sources for knowing current events, checking ads for employment, speaking and listening in the modern public square, and otherwise exploring the vast realms of human thought and knowledge. Foreclosing access to social media altogether thus prevents users from engaging in the legitimate exercise of First Amendment rights.
— Justice Anthony Kennedy
The Court’s ruling in Packingham v. North Carolina is of particular importance because it eliminates the potentially countering issues brought up in Cyber Promotions, Inc. v. American Online, Inc., 948 F. Supp. 436 (E.D. Pa. 1996), though Facebook’s de facto monopoly and ubiquitousness might well do that already.
So yes, I do believe that we, the People have to capacity to fight Fascistbook and the other dangerously biased and tyrannical social media corporations that have become entrenched in society to the point of it not being completely ridiculous to think of them as utilities.

Yep! Facebook Has Jailed Me Again
Yes, it’s true; a few days ago I was jailed by Facebook again – another 30 days during which I cannot post, share, comment, or even “like” someone’s post. Above is the “Hate Speech” I wrote in reply to someone’s post calling for Australia to ban calls from India due to all the scammers constantly calling people there.
The funny part iss that the majority of those Indian scammers are breaking Indian laws when they call other countries. Most, due to maximization of profits, use VOIP to do it and using for VOIP for international calling is actually illegal in India…they want the rupies from it.
Now, I being reasonably normal and sensible, rather than rant and rave, I simply requested a review by FB’s monitors / admins. I figured that I just got caught by some algorithm.
Yep Again! Facebook’s Employees Agree
But no! If, and it’s a nested series of if’s, Facebook actually does have people review alleged “Community Standards” violations and if those reviewers actually review the complaint instead of just pushing a button to agree with the algorithm, then those reviewers also believe that my comment constituted “Hate Speech” or that they could use the initial, computer-driven jailing as an excuse to silence me for 30 days.
OK, OK! Maybe it was just a particularly rabid Grammar Nazi. I did, after all, misspell “Rupees.”
Think about that. Read the comment I was jailed for again and think about what this means for people when operatives of the largest communication platform in the world can and do silence people at their whim and are utterly unaccountable for doing so. There is even an escalation process. Nor is their the capability for people to contact Facebook via any means other than their “support” portal.
What the MSM aka the Lamestream Media aka Fake News has done to their credibility with the American people can best and most aptly be called Self-Inflicted Integricide. The same Presstitutes who whored themselves out to the Obama Regime picked up their proverbial guns and shot themselves through their journalistic ethics in an attempt to keep their “johns,” the evermore-extreme, delusional Left.
Then, after of decade of being little to nothing more than whores for the Liberals, Progressives, any group of non-normative protected trait bearers, they’ve utterly alienated the American people who had for many decades respected them. By this point there’s really no realistic path back for them. The integricide was mortal and I doubt that even heroic measures can save them now.
I say that I see no realistic hope for cure for what’s left the “Free Press” because, both for them and for the People, it’s only going to get worse. The Left, these Liberals and Progressives as they call themselves, are utterly intolerant of heresy and are quick to rant and rave against the MSM whenever they have decided that their presstitutes have step out of the fold by not being hateful enough towards anyone and everyone who doesn’t sufficiently comport themselves to the Left’s ever-changing and ever-degenerating standards.

What makes this video equal parts hilarious and maddening is that it’s so close to the objective truth of what’s happening and what’s heinously wrong with American society in these latter, degenerate days. Sure, I doubt that any comic or speaker ever had to suffer through all of these attacks by the ever-offended SJW’s in so rapid of succession, but we’ve all seen them be assaulted in each of these ways repeatedly.
