The Left doesn’t want Americans to know that their policies don’t work, so they must create a new reality in which they can control the narrative and gaslight the nation into thinking that their policies are not only great but morally correct as well.
Conservatism works every time it is tried. Deep down liberals know this to be true, so they must censor conservatives out of existence to ensure that people aren’t taught the truth. For them, the ultimate aim is power—power to control our lives and force us to submit to their dictates. Anything less won’t suffice for them.
That is what we witnessed this summer when the Leftist “racial justice” mob acted like fascists, forcing spineless people like Drew Brees to repent and bend the knee lest they be removed from polite society indefinitely.
This week’s move to ban conservatives from social media and from using other business services is reminiscent of censorship in Communist China. For example, if you were in China right now, and you typed in “Tiananmen Square Tank Man,” you wouldn’t find any reference to the famed photo of a Chinse citizen blocking tanks from suppressing a pro-democracy march in Beijing in 1989.
It is ironic that Google is also moving to ban free speech social media sites like Parler from their services. If we know one thing about Google, they have no qualms about suppressing free speech if it enlarges their wallets and protects their personal beliefs.
An apt comparison often made by conservatives is to equate what the Left is doing today with the classic George Orwell book 1984. It is an appropriate comparison given the actions of the Left. In the story, the main character, a man named Winston Smith, describes the actions of a fictional political party’s efforts to rewrite history and brainwash the people into believing what they want them to believe.
Our public universities have become Marxist training camps in which students are taught to loathe conservatism and to hate America. The New York Times’ 1619 Project has sought to “reframe” American history to portray the American founding as being solely a defense of slavery and not about the defense of God-given inalienable rights.
Nationwide, teacher unions overwhelmingly support Democratic campaigns. In the 2016 election cycle, the two largest teachers’ unions (NEA and AFT) gave almost all of their $46 million in donations to liberal candidates and causes.
Is it any wonder why the millennial generation supports liberal candidates?
They are being taught liberal propaganda in our public schools and on college campuses, and when they go out into the world, they simply don’t know any better.
The group Black Lives Matter, which is its own separate organization, is radical and dangerous. They are advancing Marxism and causing social upheaval right under our noses, and they are using our public schools and universities to push for their socialist utopia.
A watershed moment in the history of censorship came just weeks before the 2020 election when Twitter and Facebook censored a bombshell New York Post report about the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop, which contained incriminating information about the Biden Crime family and how they spent decades cultivating a business from selling access to Joe Biden when he was a senator and vice president.
They actively interfered in an election, and that censorship worked. Nearly 20% of Biden supporters that were informed about the contents of the story said that, if they had been aware of the story, they wouldn’t have cast their ballot for Biden.
Not only is the Left’s creation of a new reality scary, but it’s working.
Sites like FreedomWire have already faced shadow banning from Google and Facebook. It is likely only a matter of time until that ban becomes permanent.
What they just did to Parler will soon be to sites like ours that provide you with information and analysis that they don’t want Americans to read.
Now, more than ever, it is important to support sites like ours and other conservative sites so that the Left aren’t allowed to recreate reality. Otherwise, it is only a matter of time before there is only the narrative-approved “truth.”
Truth becomes what the Left says it is. Or, as Orwell would have put it: “2 + 2=5.”
