FEDERAL COURT FINDS IT VIOLATES FREE SPEECH FOR ELECTED OFFICIALS TO BLOCK PEOPLE FROM SEEING THEIR SOCIAL MEDIA

Like her new lover Mike Hernandez Jessica is determined to limit Free Speech.  Well today a federal judge found elected officials violate the First Amendment when they block people from accessing and commenting on their social media.


While this opinion applies to all elected officials, here is the essential simple ruling.

"The viewpoint-based exclusion of the individual plaintiffs from that designated public forum 1s proscribed by the First Amendment and cannot be justified by the President's personal First Amendment interests."

Okay Jessica and all other elected officials who block me, you have two weeks and then I will see you in federal court. Unblock everyone or pay the piper in federal court.

A blog is social media. I guess you will meet the standard you set for others and no longer block posts on your blog.

Idiot, the troll who cannot read. I am not an elected official. The First Amendment does not apply to me. Will trolls ever have the intelligence to participate in social media?

Since anyone but a troll can see that is not what it says, your comment is rejected. I will not be party to such filth.

Clarification needed: What if the elected official is in a non-paid position? I would imagine that this only applies to officials who accept a salary whereby it is implied that updates to a FB page/individual account may be an extension of that salaried services.

Good question which extends the conversation. The First Amendment applies to all elected officials - period. Paid or or unpaid.

There is a major flaw in the opinion. It sees to be overbroad in not allowing for proper moderation - such as false information or defamatory statements. The basic issue of being allowed to see the social media platform will hold up on appeal. But the command all comments must be allowed regardless of their falsity will fall. The appellate court will accept the need for moderation of comments. But this does not mean the elected official can delete any comments which seek to challenge their position.
