LOOMERED: Facebook Admits They Are a Publisher in New Explosive Court Documents

A lawsuit filed by banished journalist Laura Loomer has forced Facebook to admit they are a publisher.

Laura Loomer – Mark Zuckerberg

 

The tech behemoth Facebook has admitted that it is a publisher while defending its arbitrary censorship of banished journalist Laura Loomer, according to court documents.

 

Facebook banned Loomer’s account from their platform during a purge of popular conservative voices that happened in May. Others targeted by the purge included Milo Yiannopoulos, Alex Jones and Paul Joseph Watson. Loomer is striking back with a lawsuit that is unearthing some interesting revelations about the social media monolith.

 

“Under well-established law, neither Facebook nor any other publisher can be liable for failing to publish someone else’s message,” Facebook’s attorneys wrote.

 

Facebook actually has the audacity to claim that their 1st Amendment rights are being violated by Loomer’s lawsuit, in a total contorting of reality. They have filed a motion to dismiss the case.

 

“She claims Facebook labeled her as a ‘dangerous’ person who promotes hate – yet, the First Amendment has long protected such statements because they are opinions that are not capable of being proven true or false,” Facebook’s attorneys claim in their dismissal motion.

 

Right now, Facebook is protected under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act from being held liable for the content published on their platform. This special exemption worked fine when the social network engaged in relative neutrality, but those days are no more as Big Tech is at war with conservative and pro-Trump voices.

 

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has introduced legislation to reform Section 230 and make the special immunity privileges contingent on Facebook and other tech providers remaining non-biased in how they curate content on their platforms:

 

As it states right now, Section 230 states that “no provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.”

 

Howley’s bill, the Ending Support for Internet Censorship Act, would remove that exemption for Big Tech firms if they act like publishers instead of neutral platforms. Corporations would have to comply with external audits proving their algorithms and content moderation are not biased.

 

“With Section 230, tech companies get a sweetheart deal that no other industry enjoys: complete exemption from traditional publisher liability in exchange for providing a forum free of political censorship,” Hawley said in a statement. “Unfortunately, and unsurprisingly, big tech has failed to hold up its end of the bargain.”

 

“There’s a growing list of evidence that shows big tech companies making editorial decisions to censor viewpoints they disagree with,” Hawley added. “Even worse, the entire process is shrouded in secrecy because these companies refuse to make their protocols public. This legislation simply states that if the tech giants want to keep their government-granted immunity, they must bring transparency and accountability to their editorial processes and prove that they don’t discriminate.”

 

Facebook is being increasingly forced to admit damaging information about its business model due to various lawsuits filed against the embattled corporation.

 

“There is no invasion of privacy at all, because there is no privacy,” Facebook attorney Orin Snyder admitted in court back in June, while describing the social network as a “digital town square” of sorts.

 

Facebook is providing ammunition for its critics to build a case to change the regulations so they can no longer inflict the Orwellian nightmare upon conservatives.

About Big League Politics

 

Big League Politics is a fast-paced news site led by a team of top-level investigative reporters, filmmakers, and citizen journalists all over the country. We challenge powerful politicians in both the Republican and Democratic Parties. We are not conservative. We are not liberal. We are road warriors fighting the good fight for journalism. How did this happen? It happened because the mainstream media and corporate journalism outlets are bought off by shady interests and they don’t tell the truth. We got sick and tired of it. That’s why most of our writers are completely incapable of getting a job anywhere else.

 

The prevailing themes on Big League Politics form a new American political identity, one that emphasizes economic nationalism and bipartisan patriotism. America is a country with its own values and interests. The establishment will always try to rig the system in favor of globalism in the markets and U.S.-led wars overseas. We seek to forge a new path, bringing together conservatives, progressives, libertarians, independents and all those who believe that America should be put First.

 

Our Ethics

 

  1. All stories on Big League Politics are factually accurate.

 

  1. All stories on Big League Politics are in the public interest. We don’t suck up to politicians. We expose corruption and give people the best information on the politics of the day. If we’re reporting it, then it’s important.

 

  1. No target is too big or too small. If someone has broken the public trust, we will be there in his/her face with a video camera.

 

  1. We let our writers have a voice. It is not our job to agree with everything that our writers say. But free speech is under attack at most publications and we think that’s wrong. At Big League Politics, censorship is a dirty word.

 

  1. We report on all the political games of the week so that you can play along at home. We want you, the readers, to get involved in our projects and to send us videos and stories.

 

  1. We are a journalist-owned company. We believe in rewarding merit, and merit only. We do not take kindly to outside influences trying to buy up media outlets in ways that disadvantage journalists.

 

  1. We do not belong to the Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Green, or even Bull Moose parties. We are independent people telling independent stories and working on issues that we care about. Our only goal is to tell the truth.

Leftist Tech NGO Donates to Islamists

Have you heard of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation? If you live in California, you probably have heard of SVCF. Adding California and SVCF, it is not difficult to pigeon-hole a wide Leftist influence. Here are some excerpts from the SCVF About Us page:

 

Silicon Valley Community Foundation advances innovative philanthropic solutions to challenging problems.

 

Since SVCF formed in 2007, we’ve become the largest community foundation in the world, with more than $8 billion in assets under management.

 

We partner with families, individuals and corporations to manage and facilitate their philanthropy. We connect donors’ interests to the most pressing needs, whether in Silicon Valley or around the globe.  As a comprehensive center for philanthropy, SVCF shapes critical public policy issues, partners with nonprofit groups and institutions advancing the best ideas and directs resources swiftly and strategically toward unforeseen needs.

 

 

What We Do

 

We play an exciting role in addressing the social, economic, and environmental challenges of our communities. SVCF provides leadership, expertise and capital to help address social issues in our region. We also serve as a resource for nonprofit, civic, government and philanthropic organizations. There are four primary ways in which we contribute:

 

  • Commission research: We commission research to identify emerging issues, monitor trends and provide analysis. To read about research we have recently commissioned, visit the publications page.

 

  • Conduct public discussions: We bring people together to engage in discussion and problem solving. These events often stimulate new insights while encouraging diverse perspectives. Check our calendar for information on upcoming events and discussions.

 

  • Advocate: We take principled positions on critical issues and advocate policy outcomes. To learn more about policy, visit the publications page.

 

  • Create initiatives: We often launch initiatives and special projects, partnering with other foundations, corporations, nonprofits, donors and government agencies to work on specific topics or issues. Visit our Initiatives page for more information.

 

… You can READ THE REST

 

Notice the about page says nothing about a Left agenda, advanced by Left-darling Obama, to fundamentally transform America.

 

Transform” means change America’s traditional Christian moral stance, change American attitudes toward alternative lifestyles, change the Rule of Law from an Originalist Constitution to a Living Constitution, change American self-reliance to Big Government reliance, change the American Market Economy into a State Managed Economy AND probably more American changes I can’t think of off the top of my head.

 

I have learned via Change.org that SVCF has hopped on board of the Leftist agenda to promote counter-Christian religions to dilute and eventually eradicate Christianity’s traditional influence on America. In this case that religion is Islam.

 

As a part of the SVCF community enhancement, the foundation has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to American radical Islamic organizations that have been caught at least by association to have been supportive of Islamic terrorism abroad.

 

This is fundamentally WRONG to be an American and yet be supportive of religious entities that seek the destruction of the American way of life.

 

Unlike this petition that distinguishes between Islam & Islamism and according to my readings of the Quran, Hadith and Sunna; Islam is a theopolitical supremacist religion that stands against everything America stands. That is the reason I signed the petition.

 

I encourage you to sign the petition as well.

 

Below is the full text of the petition on Change.org. Perhaps if you have not been convinced to sign as yet, reading the petition will encourage you.

The Silicon Valley Community Foundation Must Stop Funding Islamist Hate Groups

 

 

Mark Zuckerberg & Siraj Wahhaj

 

Petition from Middle East Forum

United States

Change.org

 

In 2008-15, the Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF) provided eight donations totaling $330,524 to two extremist organizations. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) received five donations totaling $132,933. Islamic Relief received three donations totaling $197,591.

 

We differentiate between Islam and Islamism. American Muslims are an important part of our country; but Islamists pursue an extreme political ideology with no real mandate from ordinary Muslims.

 

Islamists such as those running CAIR and Islamic Relief encourage hatred against women, Jews, Christians, the LGBTQ community, and Muslims belonging to minority sects. Islamists radicalize Muslims in the United States and fund jihadi violence abroad.

 

CAIR and Islamic Relief duplicitously employ liberal rhetoric in their pursuit of illiberal ideas, sometimes successfully duping politicians, journalists, academics, and philanthropists.

The Middle East Forum and its allies oppose all funding of Islamist organizations because this money both legitimizes Islamists as the voice of America’s Muslims and betrays those moderate Muslims working to free their faith from the grip of hatred and extremism.

 

SVCF is the largest community foundation in the United States. With over 8 billion dollars in assets under management, it is the go-to charitable organization for some of America’s wealthiest philanthropists. Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook, made a $500 million dollar donation to the foundation in 2013. America’s largest community foundation and its philanthropic partners should not support organizations that promulgate extremism both here and abroad.

We the undersigned call upon the SVCF to immediately stop all funding of extremist groups, including CAIR and Islamic Relief.

 

Appendix 1: What Are CAIR and Islamic Relief?

 

CAIR was named as an un-indicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial. The FBI has banned outreach with CAIR since 2008. In 2014, the United Arab Emirates, a pious Muslim country, designated CAIR a terrorist organization. The Anti-Defamation League accuses CAIR of promoting anti-Jewish sentiment. Six CAIR leaders have been arrested, convicted, or deported for terrorism-related crimes: Randall (“Ismail”) Royer, Ghassan ElashiBassem Khafagi, Rabih HaddadNabil Sadoun, and Muthanna Al-Hanooti.

 

Islamic Relief is the largest Islamic charity in America and the Western world, reporting an income of about $110 million in 2014. But it is a designated terrorist entity in Israel and the UAE. Banks such as UBS and HSBC have closed Islamic Relief bank accounts over concerns about terrorism financing.

 

Appendix 2: Examples of CAIR and Islamic Relief Hate Speakers

 

Siraj Wahhaj is a former member of CAIR’s advisory board and one of CAIR’s most regular speakers.

 

  • LGTBQ:“I don’t believe any of you are homosexual. This is a disease of this          society. … you know what the punishment is, if a man is found with another man? The Prophet Mohammad said the one who does it and the one to whom it is done to, kill them both.

 

  • Infidels“Woe to the Muslims who pick kafirs [a derogatory Arabic word meaning non-Muslims] for friends. … Take not into your intimacy those outside of your race. They will not fail to corrupt you. Don’t you know our children are surrounded by kafirs. I’m telling you, making the hearts of our children corrupt, dirty, foul.” 

 

Hussain Kamani is a Deobandi preacher who has spoken at multiple Islamic Relief events.

 

  • Sex slavery and adultery: Kamani explains that Muslim men may fulfill any sexual desires “with a female slave that belongs to him.” Those who commit adultery or have sex outside of marriage, he asserts, must be “stoned to death.” When Muslim husbands are learning to “train their wives,” beating them is allowed as a “last measure.”

 

Abdul Nasir Jangda, also from the Deobandi sect, has been promoted and given platforms by both Islamic Relief and CAIR.

 

  • Non-consensual sex: Detailed notes published by Jangda’s students indicate that he defends the use of female sex slaves and justifies marital rape: “The thing to understand is that the husband has his set of divinely given rights one of which is the right to have his physical desires satisfied.”

 

  • Death penalty:He advocates the killing of apostates and adulterers.

 

Omar Suleiman is one of the most frequent speakers at  CAIR and Islamic Relief events.

 

  • Honor killings: “Sisters … you know what happens with a really jealous Dad? He kills you and he kills the guy. You are offending Allah … whenever you make yourself promiscuous or you open yourself up to a relationship.”

 

  • Homosexuality:“When Allah describes homosexuality as a repugnant shameless sin and details his punishment of a people that practiced sodomy, how can anyone who believes in Allah not find it immoral?  If as Muslims we don’t take a clear stance on this, we will be forced to conform and watch this disease destroy our children.”

 

Muzammil Siddiqi is chairman of the Fiqh Council of North America and the religious director at the Islamic Society of Orange County. He works closely with CAIR and often speaks at its events.

 

  • HomosexualityHe publicly supports the death penalty for homosexuals.

 

Hassan Shibly is a CAIR staffer, the head of its Florida office.

 

  • Homosexuality: He expresses hatred for the LGBT community, as in this tweet where he says homosexuality is a quick way “to earn God’s wrath.”  

 

Jamal Badawi is a recent board member of CAIR’s Canada branch and a popular speaker at CAIR events in the United States.

 

 

 

This petition will be delivered to:

 

  • Silicon Valley Community Foundation

 

  • Emmett Carson

 

  • Samuel Johnson

 

  • Dan’l Lewin

 

  • David P. Lopez

 

  • Erik Dryburgh
