(Natural News) If Facebook continues to allow sex traffickers to use its platform to recruit victims, then members of the public are free to sue the tech giant, the Supreme Court of Texas has ruled.

Social media is not a “lawless no-man’s land,” the Court decided, siding with prosecutors that Facebook is being negligent by failing to do more to stop sex traffickers from using its platform to commit sex crimes.

“We do not understand Section 230 to ‘create a lawless no-man’s-land on the Internet’ in which states are powerless to impose liability on websites that knowingly or intentionally participate in the evil of online human trafficking,” the Court’s majority declared.

As we reported, Facebook is a hotbed of criminal activity for sex perverts, as is Twitter. In fact, the consortium of social media is a cesspool of pedophilia and other human rights violations.

For many years, Silicon Valley has argued that it has no obligation or legal right to police content – unless, of course, it supports conservative causes – because of the Communications Decency Act (CDA).

That is now being challenged, however, as the justice system is finally catching up to the machinations of Big Tech, which involves actively policing political content while sanctioning sex crimes against minors.

“Holding internet platforms accountable for words or actions of their users is one thing, and the federal precedent uniformly dictates that section 230 does not allow it,” the Texas Supreme Court further ruled.

“Holding internet platforms accountable for their own misdeeds is quite another thing. This is particularly the case for human trafficking.”

Facebook says it’s looking into “next steps” for how to proceed as a company now that sex trafficking victims can sue

Since sex trafficking represents a large segment of Facebook’s user base, the company has indicated that it will have to brainstorm “next steps” for how to proceed as a company.

“We’re reviewing the decision and considering potential next steps. Sex trafficking is abhorrent and not allowed on Facebook,” a Facebook spokesperson told Fox News.

“We will continue our fight against the spread of this content and the predators who engage in it.”

Facebook has long argued that Section 230 of the CDA protects it from all liability, no matter how it bends and manipulates the rules to bolster left-wing causes at the expense of right-wing free speech.

Conservatives have for years been censored on Facebook, and all the while sex perverts have been roaming free on the platform targeting children and other innocents.

Victims of sex trafficking can now move forward in suing Facebook for damages under the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code, which was approved back in 2009.

The 2020 Federal Human Trafficking Report – you can read it here – says that at least 59 percent of all human trafficking recruitment in 2020 took place on Facebook.

This makes Facebook “by far the most frequently referenced website or app in public sources connected with these prosecutions, which was also true in 2019,” the report explains.

“Facebook won’t allow President Trump to use its platform but sex traffickers can use it,” wrote one commenter at The Epoch Times about Facebook’s hypocrisy.

“Sue them into oblivion and charge them for abetting terrorism, rape, torture … crimes against humanity,” wrote another.

“Oh … suppression, falsification under oath, violation of the Communications Decency Act, and a violation of the [Section] 230 exemption. I have never used their site in 25 years. It has become a conduit for crime and denying the users of this utility of their privacy.”
