“The War on Conservatism.”
It may sound heavy-handed or a bit melodramatic, but I can assure you, it’s not. It’s not an exaggeration; it’s just the way it is.
The war began years ago. The first salvo was fired and we didn’t even know it…
But it happened, right under the Right’s collective noses, and America will most likely never be the country it once was.
Some say it started with the birth of political correctness. Others say it began with the rise of social media as the premier communication tool on the internet.
But the truth is that it doesn’t matter when it started. Just know that it did and Conservatives were wholly unprepared.
Never in a million years did we ever think that we’d have to worry about a culture war in which the weapons of choice would be false accusations and character attacks—but it became more and more evident throughout Trump’s presidency that these were the tactics that the Left was going to use.
They’re pretty good at it, too. They’re always looking for some reason to be offended, even though many of them are guilty of what they’re accusing the Right of doing.
Of course, we were cool with this until they started moving away from the guerilla warfare tactics of shadow banning and suppression.
But as of late, they’ve started an all-out assault on anything Conservative based—and they’re saying it’s being done in name of “safety.”
Safety Or Liberty? Which Is More Important?
This is the REAL damage from the riot on Capitol Hill. The rioters gave the Left all the ammunition they needed in order to engage in this full-frontal assault.
Now, in response to the violence, the Left has been given carte blanche to ban or censor any person or group that disagrees with them or criticizes their ideas—and they’re taking full advantage of it.
For example, they’ve already banned Donald Trump, the sitting President of the United States, for telling people to “peacefully and patriotically” protest in DC.
They’re saying he “incited insurrection,” but there is actual video evidence of him saying the exact opposite during his speech. So, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, and all the other social media platforms have banned the president, claiming it was done because of his “calls for insurrection.”
Trump wasn’t and isn’t calling for insurrection. He’s calling for truth, and the fact that not ONE government agency has actually opened an investigation into election fraud is mind-boggling.
Until this false narrative is put to bed through the investigation process, I can almost understand (again, I said ALMOST) why the Left is wielding their power to silence the President.
If they’re TRULY afraid of political violence (doubtful, but you never know) then it makes sense for them to ban Trump. It seems like the “responsible” thing to do from their twisted perspective.
However, if that’s REALLY the case, and they’re TRULY afraid of violence, then why are they banning Libertarian and former presidential candidate Ron Paul too?
The Truth: They’re Trying To ERADICATE Conservatism From AMERICA
If this was anything OTHER than the silencing of an opposing political ideology, then they would have NO reason to ban Paul—and yet here he is, unable to post to his Facebook account.
He criticized Facebook, Twitter, and others for the idiotic ban against President Trump. Paul wrote and shared an article on social media, and a few hours later he was locked out of his account.
Luckily, Twitter still allowed him to post, so he let the world know what was going on in a tweet, saying, “With no explanation other than ‘repeatedly going against our community standards,’ Facebook has blocked me from managing my page. Never have we received notice of violating community standards in the past and nowhere is the offending post identified.”

Nor will it be…
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram—all of them get to do whatever they want with the content on their platforms. That means Paul will have to wonder about the reasons forever because odds are Facebook isn’t going to tell him.
But we know, don’t we?
We know it’s because he spoke badly about them…
What did he say to get banned?
Well, in the article criticizing social media for banning Trump, Paul said, “Last week’s massive social media purges – starting with President Trump’s permanent ban from Twitter and other outlets – was shocking and chilling, particularly to those of us who value free expression and the free exchange of ideas. The justifications given for the silencing of wide swaths of public opinion made no sense and the process was anything but transparent. Nowhere in President Trump’s two ‘offending’ Tweets, for example, was a call for violence expressed explicitly or implicitly. It was a classic example of sentence first, verdict later.”
And now, he’s a victim of it as well.
This is how the Left is going to act going forward.
They’re not going to pull any punches, nor are they going to even deny that they’re trying to eradicate conservatism from America.
It’s almost better this way.
At least we’ll see the attacks coming from here on out…
