Internet Cartels Censor Your Freedom
Corporate America has been captured by far-left social activists as I’ve reported in regard to Florida teenager David Hogg who became a CNN darling as their voice for demanding gun control laws [never defined of course and that darn old Second Amendment stands in the way of those gun-grabbers].
Some idiotic retailers decided it was good business to raise the purchase age of a rifle to 21…that has hurt Walmart and other retailers. If the Democrats have their way [should they take enough seats] they hope to enact a law whereby Americans will be required to pass a background check and be 21 to purchase ammunition EACH time they make a purchase, putting a tremendous burden on retailers that don’t sell firearms and are not set up to call in background checks.
Some banks such as Citibank have colluded to declare people old enough to serve in the armed forces aren’t old enough to make such purchases by refusing payment processing to businesses that legally sell guns to adults age 18-20.
Hogg pressured major corporations to punish media personality Laura Ingraham of Fox news to pull advertising from her show after he complained that she called him a “whiner” and like sheep, some advertisers did!
Although Hogg is allowed to hurl profanity and insults against pro-Second Amendment advocates, those of us in the media are apparently banned from saying anything to him [his retorts to me failed as I told him to go serve a stint in the Army and then let me know how he felt].
As we all know the internet is becoming much less free due to powerful left-wing ‘gate-keepers’ such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube [which is pulling any video showing viewers how to make their own ammo for instance]. Other left-wing groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center [which deserves to be banned for its own brand of hate] and the Anti-Defamation League which produces a so-called “Online Hate Index,” document listing words strongly associated with hate speech including [stupidly so] such as ‘culture,’ ‘country,’ ‘nation,’ and ‘white.’ Sounds like these mental midgets need policing…I wonder who set them up as judge?
America used to embrace free speech until idiot anti-freedom groups such as these came along to act as internet police without any authority…best to ignore these morons and keep freedom of thought alive.
We could be headed to the Chinese model which is rolling out a model where every citizen will have a mandated social credit score. The score will be based largely on online behaviors. What you buy, what sites you visit, and the things you say on social media will determine your score [and as a consequence, if you’ll be allowed to ride public transportation, rent an apartment, attend school, etc.].
The Chinese is notorious for censoring the internet while in the United States we’re experiencing a growth of ‘soft’ censorship in the form of de-platforming and curating by a small handful of powerful corporations who have taken it upon themselves to control 90% of the internet [apparently buying off enough politicians in order to achieve what they want].
The Media Research Center has documented how and why this disgusting form of censorship is taking place in a new report titled: Censored! How Online Media Companies Are Suppressing Conservative Speech” - it takes a hard look at the pervasive and unethical censorship strategies of major tech firms such as Twitter, Facebook and Google.
