Twitter's censorship of conservatives violates First Amendment

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Breitbart's Allum Bokhari joined me to discuss Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey's congressional testimony. 

Despite repeatedly censoring conservatives, like banning Alex Jones, Dorsey claimed that Twitter still considers itself "a public square." Allum explained that if Twitter truly is a public square, then it has violated the First Amendment.

WATCH my interview with Allum to see how previous Supreme Court rulings may cause further complicate Twitter legal situation.

Nicholas Conklin then why do the companies never say that? They continue to deny deny deny.

Nicholas Conklin also once they selectively censor they become a publisher and not a platform, that changes laws as well.

Nicholas Conklin and if the NFL demands players stand for the anthem are you fine if they fire someone for not doing it.?

Nicholas Conklin publicly traded companies are subject to certain laws. And what the hell gives these companies the right to sell private info they said would be private? They broke the law , why no punishment?

Private companies are not bound by the first amendment. Facebook and Twitter can allow or not allow anyone they want simply on a whim. So can The Rebel.

If private businesses such as bakeries are held to the Constitution, then other businesses, such as Twitter, Facebook, etc., should be held to it too. That should mean they can’t legally flout the 1st Amendment.
