Petition demands disbarment of Facebook, Twitter lawyers over censorship — Video

On Monday, Christian filmmaker David Rosler discussed a unique tactic to combat the censorship and harassment by companies that make up what this writer now calls the “Silicon Valley Axis of Evil.”  Rosler says the best way to stop the censorship is to go after the lawyers and demand their disbarment for failing to “engage their legal obligations as lawyers to correct corporate wrongs…”

The petition, which can be seen here, states:

We, the undersigned, do hereby petition to all applicable agencies and courts with authority to investigate, hold accountable and disbar the lawyers at Twitter and Facebook for failure to engage their legal obligations as lawyers to correct corporate wrongs as demanded by the following

RCW 2.48.220:

Grounds of disbarment or suspension:

(3) Violation of his or her oath as an attorney, or of his or her duties as an attorney and counselor.

(6) For the commission of any act involving moral turpitude, dishonesty, or corruption.

(10) Gross incompetency in the practice of the profession.

(11) Violation of the ethics of the profession.

The law known as Sarbanes Oxley which demands that corporate lawyers do everything in their power to correct any wrongdoing in a corporation in which they are employed.

8 U.S. Code § 241. Conspiracy against rights which prohibits two or more people to conspire to deny anyone their first amendment rights, even if the act they conspire to do is, in itself, a legal act.

Anti-Trust Law in regard to a Justice Department statement issued last year regarding “a growing concern that these companies may be hurting competition and intentionally stifling the free exchange of ideas on their platforms,”

The bad behavior on the part of Facebook and Twitter lawyers regards failing to end the corporation’s obvious policies of conspiracy to censor political voices with the understanding that such censorship could do harm and with the obvious intent to do emotional and financial harm, allowing trolls to threaten Christians and conservatives and apparent religious bigotry against Christians.

Petitioning for the disbarment of lawyers is not unusual and remains part of our standard expression of free speech..This petition shall be sent to the California Bar, The California Supreme Court, The Attorney General of the United States, The Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission. We, the undersigned, are not lawyers, but by signing are merely expressing a deeply held First Amendment-protected personal opinion about a societal issue of which we are intensely concerned and in we regard one solution as being the disbarment of the lawyers at Twitter and Facebook. We regard this to be a reasonable solution to an extremely severe societal issue on several levels, not the least being an anticipated reversal of censorship on social media by the current legal teams at Facebook and Twitter to prove to the bar, the courts and the government that they are doing their jobs as demanded by the California Bar well as an anticipated chilling effect on other lawyers who do or might misbehave similarly and convince them that such behavior is not in their best interests.

Rosler says that for all intents and purposes, the censorship will stop as he believes lawyers will step up against it in order to protect themselves.

“Usually, a criminal prosecution results in disbarment, but, while rare, the process can go the other way and the sanctions from the bar will make the prosecutors curious,” he stated on his website.

He added:

David, his studio and his Associate Producer Kathleen Shell have been for years relentlessly censored on Facebook and Twitter. Twitter trolls, individuals engaged in plain criminal harassment, the massive evidence of which consisting of hundreds of screenshots which include death threats, was sent via certified mail to and was entirely ignored by Twitter Lead Council Vijaya Gadde (that’s her just behind Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey at last year’s hearings).

Rosler discussed the issue with Two Way Radio on Monday:

Lawmakers across the country have also taken steps against social media censorship by introducing the Stop Social Media Censorship Act of 2019, giving users a private right of action for political and religious censorship.
