NY AG Letitia James pressures social media platforms to censor 'hate speech' about Israel, Hamas despite court orders against such conduct

October 23, 2023

New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) could find herself in hot water with her own state's courts if she doesn't back off from letters she sent to social media platforms pressuring them to censor anti-Muslim and anti-Jewish "hate speech."

The Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression demanded on behalf of Rumble, Google, Facebook owner Meta, Elon Musk's X, TikTok, and Reddit that James rescind her Oct. 12 letters to those platforms.

James was trying to enforce New York's "hateful conduct" law, which is currently being litigated in the courts.

George Washington University law professor John Banzhaf said that James' letters go beyond the "heckler's veto" to the "bully's veto."

An injunction against the law has been in place since February.

Injunctions only matter to James when she's asking for them, apparently. The only way to stop her is to use the very courts she typically tries to manipulate to her own advantage.
