New lawsuit alleges the internet is a conspiracy to enslave us
Connecticut is suing a company that claims it is being “influenced” by a conspiracy theory website run by a Florida man.
Lawyer David C. Czerniak filed a lawsuit in federal court Monday alleging that in late 2014 and early 2015, he received multiple death threats and harassment from a “person with a nationalistic and racist agenda” for the website www.fbi-linked-usa.org.
Czernak alleges that he is a former U.S. Marine and that he received death threats for his work with the FBI.
The lawsuit also alleges that the website is a propaganda outlet for the U.N. and for the so-called Islamic State.
The website, www.facebook.com/FBI-linked/, has been banned by Facebook for allegedly spreading fake news, conspiracy theories and “anti-semitic, racist and anti-Semitic content.”
In a statement released Monday, Facebook said it is aware of the lawsuit and has launched an investigation.CZERNAK’S LAWYER says he is suing Facebook for defamation because Facebook did not warn him about the site before it was shut down.
He says Facebook’s decision to remove the site, as well as the website’s use of his name, is “indefensible” and “not in the public interest.”
Czarniak says that he’s seeking $2.5 million in damages.
