(Natural News) With each passing day, the Marxist left, using whatever tools available to it, marches one or two steps closer to a complete takeover of our struggling, dying republic — and that includes the disgustingly corrupt ‘mainstream media.’
In the immediate aftermath of the foolish breach on the U.S. Capitol Building by some supporters of President Trump, the establishment press has already invented a fake narrative to justify the complete deplatforming and delisting of all of the president’s supporters, including the 99 percent who attended his “Stop the Steal” rally ahead of the assault.
Predictably, this entirely American disruption has blue-checkmarked commentariat shrieking about Vladimir Putin on social media. Just as predictably, it’s also got them calling for the censorship of social media.
The New York Times has published two new articles titled “The storming of Capitol Hill was organized on social media” and “Violence on Capitol Hill Is a Day of Reckoning for Social Media,” both arguing for more heavy-handed restrictions on speech from Silicon Valley tech giants.
Are you picking up on that? The liars in the mainstream media are allowed to post their fabricated narratives on the same left-wing social media platforms that often ban Trump supporters and conservatives who post things that are true.
Did you also pick up on the fact that this media outlet, which operates under the First Amendment’s speech protections and press guarantees, is calling for censorship?
In the first story, the Times’ Sheera Frenkel claims “the violence Wednesday was the result of online movements operating in closed social media networks where people believed the claims of voter fraud and of the election being stolen from Mr. Trump.”
Note to Frenkel: The election was stolen from the president — but Russia did not help him ‘steal the election’ from Hillary Clinton in 2016. What liars.
Anyway, Frenkel cited the ‘expert’ analysis of Renee DiResta, a think tank type who claimed once that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) was a ‘Russian asset’ when she was running for the Democratic presidential nomination last year.
“These people are acting because they are convinced an election was stolen,” DiResta said. “This is a demonstration of the very real-world impact of echo chambers.
“This has been a striking repudiation of the idea that there is an online and an offline world and that what is said online is in some way kept online,” she continued.
So, what’s the solution? Kick these right-wing conspiracy nuts offline!
Of course. Just like a ‘Democratic’ tyrant — and hypocritical too, as We Are Change points out:
This narrative which seeds the idea that unregulated communication on the internet will lead to violent uprisings is funny coming from Frankel, who, as a Twitter follower recently observed, wrote a piece in 2018 condemning the Iranian government for restricting protesters’ social media access during the demonstrations at that time.
“Social media and messaging apps have become crucial to antigovernment demonstrators around the world, as a means of both organizing and delivering messages to other citizens,” Frankel wrote. “Not surprisingly, restricting access to such technology has become as important to government crackdowns as the physical presence of the police.” (Related: Pence praises Capitol police after they shot unarmed woman dead during unarmed protest.)
Social media for Iranian freedom fighters and libertarians good; for American freedom fighters and libertarians, bad.
The Times’ second piece by Frankel, Mike Isaac and Kate Conger pushes for bans of Trump supporters online even less subtly.
“As pro-Trump protesters stormed the Capitol building on Wednesday and halted the certification of Electoral College votes, the role of social media companies such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube in spreading misinformation and being a megaphone for Mr. Trump came under renewed criticism,” they write.
“So when violence broke out in Washington on Wednesday, it was, in the minds of longtime critics, the day the chickens came home to roost for the social media companies.”
Translation: ‘You must deplatform all who disagree with us!’
Again, conservatives, listen up: Stop relying on these clowns and sycophants to ‘come to their senses’ and ‘be fair.’ They’re not going to be. So we have to develop our own parallel economy and ecosystems. Because sooner or later, the insane left will take all of theirs away and shut us out.
