Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) is facing a lawsuit over his role in censoring anti-vaccine advocates.
The suit was filed on January 15, 2020, by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. They allege that Adam Schiff abused government power and infringed on their free speech.
The AAPS general counsel asked, “Who appointed Congressman Adam Schiff as Censor-in-Chief? No one did, and he should not be misusing his position to censor speech on the internet.”
The suite is tied to Schiff’s actions in working with major technology companies like Google and Facebook to de-platform what Schiff asserted to be inaccurate information on vaccines.
Whatever the facts are on vaccines, the precedent Schiff set was extremely troubling. Since when is it healthy in a democracy to limit the free speech of free citizens?
Government working with big tech companies to censor free and open discourse should be concerning for all Americans.
