When information becomes a “threat”, even thinking the wrong thing can be dangerous. Over the past several weeks, I have heard the word “misinformation” uttered in the same sentence as “terror” or “terrorists” countless times. In the old days, the “extremists” and the “terrorists” were on the other side of the globe, but now we are being told that they live among us. So how can we identify them? Well, we are being told that “the bad guys” can be identified by what they believe. Those that do not embrace the propaganda that big tech and the corporate media are relentlessly pushing are being systematically “deplatformed”, “canceled” and pushed to the fringes of society. But apparently that is not nearly enough, because the New York Times is now asking for the Biden administration to appoint a “reality czar” that will be given authority to deal with “misinformation” and “extremism”.
So exactly what will be done to those that are guilty of committing “thought crimes” against the government?
Sadly, I think that we are eventually going to find out.
For decades, the elite have been telling us that we need to have a “tolerant” society. But now that they have almost total control, we are being told that in order to have that tolerant society they must be extremely intolerant of dissenting viewpoints.
They seem to have embraced a very radical form of the “paradox of tolerance”, and as a result our society is becoming more dystopian with each passing day.
For example, this week U.S. Representative Jackie Speier suggested that it is time to start referring to Republicans as “the terrorist right”.
That is close to half the country. Does she really want nearly half the nation to be considered “terrorists”?
Last month, I wrote about a new bill that has been introduced in Congress which is essentially the Patriot Act on steroids. But of course the Patriot Act was primarily focused on terror threats from overseas, while even Democrats are admitting that this new bill appears to be specifically targeting Americans that do not have the correct political views. If you doubt this, just consider what Tulsi Gabbard is saying about this new bill…
This is an issue that all Democrats, Republicans, independents, Libertarians should be extremely concerned about, especially because we don’t have to guess about where this goes or how this ends. What characteristics are we looking for as we are building this profile of a potential extremist, what are we talking about? Religious extremists, are we talking about Christians, evangelical Christians, what is a religious extremist? Is it somebody who is pro-life?
In the end, they don’t have to put millions of people in prison to chill free speech in America.
All they have to do is set a few examples and most others will willingly fall in line.
It is all about behavioral conditioning. They want to shape what we do, what we say and what we think by creating fear.
As Grace-Anne Kelly has aptly pointed out, this is something that they are doing to our children as well.
Remember, the Army could not confront Hasan’s radical Islamic leanings because… well, Islam. Even as radical Islamic domestic terrorism was on the rise under Obama, it was forbidden to use Islam as a focus for investigation. Because… Islam. Now, thought crimes are a real thing and what you think or say (as long as it isn’t leftist) can be reason for arrest and prosecution. Forget that while the Proud Boys have not conducted a single riot and BLM/ANTIFA are responsible for over $2 billion in damages just this summer, the focus is on anyone NOT on the left.
Yeah, I feel safer already.
Oh they would love the social credit score that China has.
