How obvious that the freedom of speech is what made the pushback possible, for if the First Amendment were completely dead, we would never have seen the commentary of the embarrassing hearings or the Mary Poppins video. This brazen attack on the first of our Bill of Rights would have just happened, probably by executive order.
Freedom of Speech
The only way to challenge and expose an ill-conceived idea is to break down and dispute that very idea with reasoning and then offer a superior alternative. It will be problematic to dissolve such ideas by pushing them into the midst of the dark web or online forums such as 4Chan or 8Chan. In other words, censorship will merely add more oxygen to these ideas, and they will continue to grow.
It’s one thing to lose your dignity as citizens, and another to just lose your country altogether, and that is the circle of hell that the Left has dragged everyone else into since even before Hillary Clinton booted the 2016 election. This tyrannical Maoist managerial mob, grown paradoxically rich beyond precedent, became a tool of the state itself working around the inconvenient first amendment to hog-tie public debate. Will the US government allow Mr. Musk to get away with liberating the new “public square?”
Facts Matter, Unless They’re Bad For Joe Biden: New Analysis By Big Tech Watchdog Exposes Mass Hypocrisy
Yet as bad as this analysis looks for Big Tech – and for our freedom of speech as a result – the picture looks even more bleak when we consider the context. MRC’s analysis only took into consideration the censorship of material relating to Joe Biden. What would those numbers look like if they included criticisms of Vice-President Kamala Harris? And House Speaker Nancy Pelosi? And Senate Leader Chuck Schumer?
High and increasing prices for food, gas, housing, and nearly everything else, massive illegal immigration that is only getting worse, vaccination and mask mandates, destruction of our military, support for the Taliban and Iran, and so many other destructive acts have turned even some of their strongest supporters against them. One is inclined to attribute it all to massive stupidity and incompetence, but what if it’s not?
Indeed, we the people can fight for ourselves by building communities from the bottom-up that demonstrate self-reliance and self-motivation. In many cases, the utilization of modern technology can also enhance productivity and efficiency, whether we’re running in-person or remote homeschooling programs or reaching out to and connecting with like-minded patriots.
If you disagree with them on social media, they’ll censor you, kick you off Twitter or Facebook, and accuse you of engaging in ‘misinformation.’ If you disagree with them in Congress, they’ll scream at you as you sit down for dinner in a restaurant. And now, if you even try to make your dissenting voice heard on public property by peaceably protesting their draconian measures, they’ll force laws and ordinances through their leftwing governments to make such protests unlawful.
Under Gov. Inslee’s proposed law, it would be a misdemeanor punishable by up to a $5,000 fine, 364 days in jail, and removal from office for any official to question the outcome of any election both local and statewide. Jay Inslee believes that by passing this law, events like what happened at Washington D.C. on January 6th, 2021, would be curtailed in Washington State. Which begs the question; why would Governor Inslee believe that something like January 6th would happen in Washington State?
When lobbed softballs on the subject of misinformation or disinformation (on election integrity and COVID, for example), Secretary Mayorkas said that addressing this was under the purview of the Department of Homeland Security. That they were working on it because “misinformation, uh, pointedly, disinformation have very serious and significant ramifications for homeland security. “
Hillary, and indeed most Democrats, don’t believe you are intelligent enough to process what you see and hear in the news. You’re not bright enough to make up your minds for yourselves. You need a gatekeeper to “help” you. You need some to provide “perspective” to make sure you come to the proper conclusions. You need an authoritarian to ensure your opinions align with Hillary’s opinions, because if you don’t, then you have the wrong opinion. And Hillary can’t have that.
Personally, my wife and I have been vaccinated. We chose to. I exercised my freedom to choose what I believe is best for me. That’s a far cry from Biden’s refusal to allow free choice in such a personal matter, especially given the efficacy of immune protection for those who have already experienced the virus. Not to mention the special medical conditions of some people such that it mitigates against their using the vaccine.
Is it the elected that are on a power trip during COVID? Or is it the judiciary who are not interpreting situations but legislating from the bench? It is probably best shared but watching various governments erode the rights of their citizens is painful. These rights were given by God and reinforced with the blood of brave men and women who sacrificed to preserve these rights.
It’s one thing for children to stick their fingers in their ears when they don’t want to hear unpleasant opinions and information, but it’s quite another for grown-up billionaires to force silence on those with whom they disagree.
