Muh Norms are being restored left and right!
Kira Davis at RedState:
The Biden administration has failed spectacularly at their goal of getting 70% of the American population vaccinated for COVID by the beginning of July. It was unrealistic in the first place. Most Americans are not hard-wired for obedience, even if COVID lockdowns proved too many people seem to be…Now Biden’s team and surrogates are making plans to censor your private text messages the same way Big Tech censors your social media posts.
In addition to their KGB-for-dummies plan of knocking on your door to inquire about your personal medical decisions, the White House plans to activate left-wing groups and activists to put pressure on phone carriers to censor SMS text messages that may contain “misinformation” about COVID, the vaccines, and heaven knows what else they may consider to be wrong information.
Biden allied groups, including the Democratic National Committee, are also planning to engage fact-checkers more aggressively and work with SMS carriers to dispel misinformation about vaccines that is sent over social media and text messages. The goal is to ensure that people who may have difficulty getting a vaccination because of issues like transportation see those barriers lessened or removed entirely.”We are steadfastly committed to keeping politics out of the effort to get every American vaccinated so that we can save lives and help our economy further recover,” White House spokesperson Kevin Munoz said. “When we see deliberate efforts to spread misinformation, we view that as an impediment to the country’s public health and will not shy away from calling that out.”
Via Tim Pool, two thirds of Americans say they already censor themselves due to the conformist pressure to repeat the official corporate propaganda — but that’s not enough for the Ruling Class.
The poll of 1,462 people found 18 percent said they censored themselves “all the time” while 48 percent said they did so “sometimes.”Fifty-nine percent of those asked deemed current levels of censorship in the United States to be “out of control” and “unacceptable,” according to market research firm Invisibly, which is backed by Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund.
Most respondents, 91 percent, said they had a negative view of censorship.
Nobody can deny that there has been a massive amount of censorship taking place in the social media arena but what some have only suspected to be true is that the government is behind it. That is, until now. The Montana Daily Gazette, one of our sister publications, first reported that Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai publicized court documents that prove the U.S. Government entered into a formal agreement with Big Tech to censor speech they did not agree with.As Montana Daily Gazette reported, the combined federation of Big Tech companies is, effectually, a monopoly holding at least 90 percent of the current combined market share in social media. These would include such companies as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and other tech companies that make sharing viewpoints in the public square available to its users.
As reported by the Montana Gazette, the court documents focus on an invention called Twitter Trusted Partnership and Twitter Partner Support (PSP) Portal. This, according to the Gazette, “is the means and mechanism by which federal or state governments can issue a ‘censorship order’ to Twitter, which has agreed to comply with such orders, as the price of avoiding regulatory oversight.”
A few key points from the court filing are:
“White House spokesperson Kevin Munoz said. “When we see deliberate efforts to spread misinformation, we view that as an impediment to the country’s public health and will not shy away from calling that out.””
They need to start with the disinformation coming out of the idiot Biden’s stupid mouth and the mouths of almost every other lying Democrat about voter integrity laws. Idiot Biden’s statements today were not only lies but they were lies intended to divide and incite racial animus. For anyone in this administration to suggest they are worthy to police “misinformation” is like Greg’s CNN “fact check” the other day.
So, we could have vindictive, power-drunk Democrats reading our texts and deciding what THEY consider “misinformation”. Yeah, nothing could go wrong there. They’ve already destroyed whatever righteousness the FISA system had by abusing it to spy on US citizens that happen to be political opponents.
It is the party that accuses Republicans of being fascists that want to develop yet another avenue through which they can monitor and censor free speech and, inevitably, use such surveillance to arrest and imprison political dissidents.
