Orlando nightclub victims' families sue Twitter, Google, Facebook

[Full Article]

By Brendan O'Brien
The families of three men killed at Orlando's Pulse gay nightclub have sued Twitter Inc, Alphabet Inc's Google and Facebook Inc in federal court, accusing the companies of providing "material support" to the self-radicalized gunman.

The gunman, 29-year-old Omar Mateen, who killed 49 people and wounded 53 in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, pledged allegiance to the Islamic State militant group before police fatally shot him after the June attack, officials said.

The suit alleges the "material support has been instrumental to the rise of ISIS and has enabled it to carry out or cause to be carried out, numerous terrorist attacks."

Facebook said on Tuesday there is no place on its service for groups that engage in or support terrorism, and that it takes swift action to remove that content when it is reported.

This is great! I support this 100%. It's commmon knowledge that all three companies have censored and even out right banned right-wing people like Milo (a Gay Journalist) while verifying and supporting terrorist groups like ISIS and Muslim Brotherhood.

Monday's lawsuit claims that the companies create unique content by combining ISIS postings with advertisements to target the viewer. It also says they share revenue with ISIS for its content and profit from ISIS postings through advertising revenue.

Of course the revenue is shared. All of this is sweet justice, because these same three companies are also pushing the "Fake News" narrative while actually themselves creating Fake News and censoring the real news. In reality, this is just another nail in the coffin of MSM social media platforms as people are slowly migrating to alternative free-speech media platforms like Gab.ai

Of course, I don't think that this law-suit will go anywhere as it will set a dangerous free-speech precident but none-the-less companies should not be giving voice to actual terrorist groups and organizations--doing so breaks the companies own terms of service. Perhaps, this case does have standing?
