Harmeet Dhillon Appears on FNC’s ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ To Discuss Antifa and Big Tech
According to Dhillon:
Well, Tucker, I’ve been a civil rights attorney for most of my career, over 25 years. And I saw a real gap in the Civil Rights establishment, which is that when it comes to increasingly First Amendment rights in general, but particularly the rights of anybody who’s anywhere on the right, or anybody who’s marginalised and not part of the popular woke movement, there’s no place for them in the civil rights community. And so I started this nonprofit last year. It was approved by the IRS for nonprofit status earlier this year. And we aim to fill the gaps that the civil rights community doesn’t feel like the ACLU no longer cares about first amendment issues, certainly not for people on my side of the spectrum. But this is not a partisan organisation. It’s simply there to help people who are ignored so Andy Ngo is the first client of Publius Lex, we are also hoping to help people who are being marginalised by big tech and oppressed by the government. And so, you know, I’ve sued city of San Jose and sued Google, we’re looking at legal action in Portland. And so all of these things are things that are dear to my heart, and hopefully, they’ll be many attorneys joining me to help take these cases.
I’m sure, I already am, you know, tweets that should have thousands of likes, have hundreds etc. I think this is a common issue, something that we talked about at the White House today actually.
It was very interesting. There were a lot of people from across the sort of Twitter verse, different walks of life and so forth. But what they had in common was a passion for free speech and making sure that their voices are heard. And so we had some great conversations privately, and also with the bigger group about what was happening and some great members of Congress. We talked about potential legislative analyses. Ultimately, I’m very skeptical, of anything that doesn’t really impact what they’re doing with respect to the immunity that they have from lawsuits under Communications Decency Act, Section 230. And so I think that to me, as an attorney, I think the first thing that needs to get done is to reign in those definitions and make sure that only the speech that was meant to be protected when the statute was passed, is what is protected. Now, it’s really gotten out of control, Tucker, the courthouse doors are virtually barred to anybody who wants to sue for their rights, even when it’s a breach of contract. Antitrust issues, anything like that, you know, big tech has got its finger on the scale, and they own a lot of politicians and all a lot of Think Tanks in DC. And so, it’s an epic struggle.
Thank you Tucker.
