Pulse nightclub jihad massacre survivors sue tech giants over ‘material support’ to ISIS

“The expansion and success of ISIS is in large part due to its use of the defendants’ social media platforms to promote and carry out its terrorist activities,” the lawsuit reads. “But for ISIS’s postings using defendants’ social media platforms, Mateen would not have engaged in his Orlando attack.”

Yes, and the social media giants let ISIS have a platform, allowing them to “act with impunity.” Instead of closing terrorists’ accounts, the social media giants cracked down hard on conservatives’ account, choking off our platforms and denying us the right to air our views. This is a massive problem, perhaps the biggest problem the U.S. faces today. Without the freedom of speech, we are not a free society. And the social media giants, which are conforming to sharia blasphemy laws, have far too much control over the means of communication in this country today. They need to be broken up, before even more damage is done.

“Pulse survivors sue tech giants over ‘material support’ to ISIS,” by Lukas Mikelionis, New York Post, April 6, 2018 (thanks to Kenny):

Survivors of the Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando, Fla., perpetrated by a supporter of the Islamic State terror group, are suing Google, Facebook and Twitter, alleging that the tech firms allowed the group to proliferate and spread propaganda.

In a lawsuit filed Wednesday in Orlando’s federal courthouse, 16 victims of the June 12, 2016, shooting — the second-deadliest in American history — claim that the three tech giants were responsible for letting ISIS disseminate propaganda on their platforms, thus providing “material support” to the terror group, in violation of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act.

Such support, the suit alleges, let gunman Omar Mateen carry out his attack, which left 49 people dead and another 58 injured, the Orlando Sentinel reported. Mateen was killed in a shootout with responding police officers.

“By the time of the terror attacks in this case, ISIS had become one of the largest and most widely recognized and feared terrorist organizations in the world … due in large part to its use of the Defendants’ social media platforms to promote and carry out its terrorist activities,” wrote Ari Kresch and Keith Altman, the Michigan attorneys who filed the lawsuit.

“The expansion and success of ISIS is in large part due to its use of the defendants’ social media platforms to promote and carry out its terrorist activities,” the lawsuit reads. “But for ISIS’s postings using defendants’ social media platforms, Mateen would not have engaged in his Orlando attack.”

The survivors of the attack also argue that the tech giants profited from content created by ISIS and that the terror group may have received money from Google-owned YouTube in the form of ad revenue.

The suit requests a judge to declare that the three companies “have violated and are continuing to violate, the Anti-Terrorism Act” and force them to pay “compensatory damages in amounts to be determined at trial” in addition to covering legal costs and other relief….
