Murthy v. Missouri: Will Freedom of Speech Survive in America?

The Supreme Court will be hearing oral arguments on Monday in the major Covid-related case, Murthy v. Missouri. It will examine the various attempts by federal agencies and Joe Biden to shut down freedom of speech over the last several years.

The stakes are very high. If the justices allow the federal government to smother free speech, it will be a game changer for our country.

A good article at the Brownstone Institute discusses one particular weak link among the Supreme Court Justices considering this matter– i.e., Chief Justice John Roberts. His record is dicey, at best. Let’s pray he grows a backbone and rules correctly.

  1. This is an important case .

    This is what a stake, U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty, issued an injunction blocking multiple government agencies and administration officials. In his words, they are forbidden to meet with or contact social media companies for the purpose of “encouraging, pressuring, or inducing in any manner the removal, deletion, suppression, or reduction of content containing protected free speech.”

    The order also prohibits the agencies and officials from pressuring social media companies “in any manner” to try to suppress posts, raising questions about what officials could even say in public forums.

    Ths SCOTUS should affirm Judge Doughty’s decision.

  2. I agree, Fred. And I think that, if we took the time to look, the federal government also has its tentacles in other types of media– television news, major newspapers, wire services, etc. The pressure tactics are undoubtedly not limited to social media.
