Yes, that's the standard excuse they take advantage of.
But if the bans are following instructions from the government to ban
stuff that the government disapproves of,-----then they are acting as
an arm of the government. It is a method for the government to
implement unconstitutional acts by saying 'We didn't do it - it's them
over there and they are allowed to do it.'
It is called Fascism - the merger of state and corporate power.
