Harmeet Dhillon Appears on FBN’s ‘Lou Dobbs Tonight’ To Discuss Devin Nunes $250 Law Suit Against Twitter
According to Dhillon:
Well, it’s a lengthy lawsuit and I have not read the thing but it raises interesting arguments that I have been making as well over time, which is that the communications decency act that gives companies like Twitter, Facebook and Google protection from lawsuits for hosting defamatory content is really outdated and it gives unnecessary cover to the companies. I think what he’s trying to do is push the envelope and test this law and see if he can get around it and is also sued a commentator, a known commentator that is sort of a never Trump or constantly critical of him. And Devin Nunes also suits the fake accounts which repeatedly attacked him and impersonated his mother but Twitter did nothing until his mother stepped forward and asked them to be taken down. I think this is long overdue. A discussion is needed and corrections needed to be had with regard to policies regarding these companies.
When we were kids and on the playground and we did not like the outcome of the game, we would see if we could try to change the rules. It’s exactly what the Democrats are doing here. They are fresh out of ideas, nothing new to say, so they figure out that the only way they will be able to win is— changing the rules. I remember similar to this situation, which the President was constantly being voted down by the Supreme Court for his new deal legislation and finally, he figured out that he would just fix that by packing the court and really forcing them to retire. Basically, the proposal back then was if you are older than 70, the President could add a new Supreme Court justice—this is a failed idea. A lot of democratic senators have been quoted as being against this. Hopefully, reason will find the day and they will not do this stupid thing which would really be destructive of balance of power in our country. I think he’s doing the best and Devito is a very strong step here and the White House communications team has been tweeting great things about what’s happening. So I think I would love to see more presence on the border and we would love to see the wall being built more aggressively. But I think the president is doing what he can on this run.
