Dems Target Conservative Networks for Deplatforming
Of course they are. This was inevitable, and probably not the first time radical leftists tried to shut us up at the source. They won’t stop, just get that in your head. And their best reason NOW is so-called ‘misinformation’.
Two House Democrats sent letters Monday to a dozen television broadcasters suggesting that they stop airing Fox News, Newsmax, and One America News Network, a move which a Republican commissioner on the FCC called a “chilling transgression” aimed at de-platforming the conservative networks. Read the rest here.
‘Fact’ checkers are glorified, conservatives vilified. Not that this hasn’t been going on for years, but now it’s so out loud and proud. Leftists now use the Capitol breach as their reason to keep conservatives from congregating online and in person. Why else is the wall in DC still up? I would bet that wall will be up until the ’24 election.
Democrat ‘lawmakers’ sent letters to AT&T, Verizon, Roku, Amazon, Apple, Comcast, Charter, Dish, Cox, Altice, Alphabet [Google] and Hulu: “The Democrats are sending a message that is as clear as it is troubling — these regulated entities will pay a price if the targeted newsrooms do not conform to Democrats’ preferred political narratives.”
Eshoo and McNerney sit on the House Committee on Energy & Commerce, which will hold a hearing on Wednesday entitled “Fanning the Flames: Disinformation and Extremism in the Media.” but did not count on the response from the FCC [below]. The Federal Communications Commission KNOW what suppression and censorship looks is, and this quacks like a duck.
Big Tech is looking a bit small and pathetic now. I would imagine their power and worth is very shaky when influencers and conservatives still have a voice and a platform. They also know their agenda won’t last past the next election cycle, if that. So time is not on their side.
Misinformation and Big Tech vs Vaccines
Funny thing, when I reposted this story on our facebook page, it magically disappeared. Well, according to this story, what the White House said is true: “The White House is asking Big Tech giants Facebook, Twitter and Alphabet Inc.’s Google to “clamp down on chatter that deviates from officially distributed COVID-19 information,” according to the New York Post and other news reports.”
Chatter. That so-called ‘chatter’ helps people make reasonable medical decisions. Think of how this has gone out of control, pretty much anyone can stick you with this toxic waste in a parking lot rather than a doctor or nurse in a proper medical office. THAT MAKES TOTAL SENSE. Because ‘pandemic’.
Big tech has become your doctor, your news source, your teacher, your parent, and your god. Social media isn’t a time waster anymore, now it is a ‘news’ source, manipulated and over-inflated, White House endorsed to keep us in submission. And we worried about nuclear war with China and Russia. Silly Americans.
Even so, the tone from the White House is telling people to get over it, take the vax, PERIOD. Why? Why force people to take any vax without extensive proper research? Why scare people to the point they will kill someone to get to it?
Fun fact: A New York waitress was fired from her job on Monday after she told her bosses at a tavern that she wanted to wait to get the vaccine until she could learn more about its side effects on women who are pregnant. And she is not anti-vax at all but wanted to research and wait. That’s all. Read the rest here.
“VACCINE HESITANCY is a huge obstacle to getting everyone vaccinated and there are no larger players in that than the social media platforms,” a White House source told Reuters……A spokesperson for Facebook told Reuters the company has reached out to the White House to offer any assistance they can provide and recently announced a new policy to remove COVID information the company deems false, along with pages, groups and accounts that repeatedly spread such material.”
That means ALL OF IT. Everything you post influences other people to question the vaccine. This is much like inauguration week when most of us was banned from commenting on ALL news articles [I use the term ‘news’ loosely]. Free speech? That ship sailed.
“While social media companies are private entities with rights to censor information they don’t like, the involvement of the government in censorship efforts implicates the First Amendment.” ~ Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Also note that Kennedy’s Children’s Health Defense’s Instagram account was deplatformed and Twitter is in “regular communication with the White House on a number of critical issues including COVID-19 misinformation.”
MISINFORMATION means your freedom of speech will be censored for the foreseeable future. By independent ‘fact’ checkers. It’s kind of like mean girls tattling on the mousy straight A girl that does her homework.
SO STOP SAYING BAD THINGS ABOUT THE VACCINE. Like how it was produced way too quickly, or inhumanely tested with aborted human cells and animals, or that it doesn’t really work, you know…stuff like that.

So how is this social media suppression going for you?
For us conservatives and prolifers, not so good. Suppression is pretty thick right now. On a recent post on one our Facebook pages:
Dear #Prolife Friends: Many conservative influencers are being kept from commenting on political posts, and on this media platform, includes prolife articles and events. MANY prolifers are not allowed to create groups and events OR comment on them OR share them. All of this at inauguration time. Our influence is being limited and shut down. And we have to wonder why our opinions are so important after the media chose their president. The election is over, right? So post and comment as much as you can WHILE you can. People need to know the truth.
Even so, regardless of what you think about the election, we are being shut down until AFTER the ‘inauguration’. Our media platforms are being erased as if we never existed. I get it. Influencing people is scary for a biased media.
Free thought, free speech, all being shut down in the public square. DC has put up 8′ metal walls with razor wire. Suddenly they’re okay with the police and walls. Got it.
How do you prepare for a social media blackout? Email services, alternative platforms, start a blog or two, podcasting [which we are working on] – but more importantly, as I mentioned above, comment on every political story on social media you can get your hands on. It has never been more important at this time to influence everyone you possibly can. We will not go away quietly.
Because a changed mind is a terrible thing to waste.
