Jaji amuonya Rais Trump kuhusu mitandao ya kijamii




Hakuna ubishi kuwa Rais wa Marekani, Donald Trump ni moja ya Marais maarufu zaidi kwenye mitandao ya kijamii kwani haipiti siku bila Rais huyo kuposti au kutweet.

Sasa habari mbaya kwake ni kwamba Jaji wa Jiji la New York, Naomi Reice Buchwald amesema kuwa Rais huyo anatakiwa kuwa mvumilivu na mnyenyekevu kwenye mitandao ya kijamii hasa pale anapokutana na watu wanaompinga, kumkejeli na kumtolea lugha za matusi kwani yeye ni kiongozi wa taifa na anawajibu wa kumsikiliza kila mtu.

Buchwald kwenye taarifa yake aliyoitoa juzi Mei 23, 2018 amesema Rais Trump hatakiwa kabisa kum-block mtu yeyote kwenye kurasa zake za mitandao ya kijamii, kwani kufanya hivyo ni kuvunja katiba ya nchi. Soma taarifa ya Jaji Buchwald hapa chini.
“No government official — including the President — is above the law, and all government officials are presumed to follow the law as has been declared.”

“We hold that portions of the @realDonaldTrump account — the ‘interactive space’ where Twitter users may directly engage with the content of the President’s tweets — are properly analyzed under the “‘public forum’ doctrines set forth by the Supreme Court, that such space is a designated public forum, and that the blocking of the plaintiffs based on their political speech constitutes viewpoint discrimination that violates the First Amendment.”
Mwaka jana Taasisi ya masuala ya kisheria ya The Knight iliyopo katika Chuo Kikuu cha Cornell kilichopo jiji New York kilipendekeza kufanyike mabadiliko madogo ya katiba kuhusu matumizi ya mitandao ya kijamii kwa viongozi wakubwa wa taifa hilo.

Taasisi hiyo imemuunga mkono Jaji huyo kwa kauli yake kwani mpaka sasa imeripotiwa zaidi ya akaunti 100 zimepigwa block na Rais Trump na wote waliopigwa tofali ni watu kutoka mlengo wa kushoto. Soma taarifa yao hapa chini

A federal judge ruled today that President Trump’s practice of blocking critics from his Twitter account violates the First Amendment. The decision by Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York comes in a case filed by the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University on behalf of people who were blocked from the @realDonaldTrump account after they criticized the president and his policies.

“We’re pleased with the court’s decision, which reflects a careful application of core First Amendment principles to government censorship on a new communications platform,” said Jameel Jaffer, the Knight Institute’s executive director. “The president’s practice of blocking critics on Twitter is pernicious and unconstitutional, and we hope this ruling will bring it to an end.”

The Knight Institute filed the lawsuit against President Trump and his aides last July on behalf of seven individuals whom President Trump blocked from the @realDonaldTrump account after they criticized him on the social media platform. Those blocked from the account are prevented from viewing the president’s tweets, replying directly to those tweets, and viewing the comment threads associated with those tweets while they are logged into their Twitter accounts. Profiles of the Knight Institute’s plaintiffs are here.

In her opinion, Judge Buchwald agrees with the Institute that the “interactive space” associated with the president’s Twitter account constitutes a “public forum” under the First Amendment and that the president is therefore barred from blocking speakers from his account on the basis of viewpoint.

Judge Buchwald also endorses the Knight Institute’s argument that the president’s actions violate the First Amendment by distorting the debate in the comment threads, and by depriving followers of the @realDonaldTrump account of speech that would have been expressed by those who have been blocked.

“The First Amendment prohibits government officials from suppressing speech on the basis of viewpoint,” said Katie Fallow, senior staff attorney at the Institute. “The court’s application of that principle here should guide all of the public officials who are communicating with their constituents through social media.”
