Big Tech Colludes With Biden Regime on Censorship

Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini said that fascism should be called corporatism, “as it is the merger of corporate and government power.” For example, we have recently learned that the Biden Regime has arranged regular meetings with Big Tech giants to discuss what to censor:

The new discoveries are the result of a “landmark lawsuit” filed by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry in May against top-ranking Biden administration officials for allegedly colluding with Big Tech companies to censor free speech on a number of critical topics, all under the pretense of stopping the spread of “misinformation.”

They wouldn’t want any Hunter Biden laptop bombshells to sneak through the Democrat Party’s Silicon Valley defenses.

We’ll know more if the Justice Department stops stalling and obeys a court’s orders to turn over communications between high-level federal apparatchiks and their Big Tech collaborators.

On Thursday, the two attorneys general filed a joint petition demanding that the DOJ produce those documents.

Maybe the DoJ should sic the FBI on itself. It might raid Merrick Garland’s lair I mean home like it did Mar-a-Lago.

Yet again we see that the reason the Biden people accuse their opposition of fascism if that they themselves are fascists.

Twitter Promises to Protect Dems From October Surprises

Democrats face some challenges in the elections this fall, including stratospheric inflation, appallingly incompetent leadership, widespread alarm at their banana republic tactics, and a general sense that American civilization is collapsing under their rule. But at least they don’t have to worry about October surprises. Big Tech has them covered:

Far-left Twitter has declared it will “protect” the midterm elections with a range of policies designed to suppress what the company considers “misinformation,” and deliver Twitter-curated news to users.

2020 was the first American election in which Big Tech companies like Twitter, Facebook, and Google had “election integrity” policies — and they resulted in one of the most consequential stories of that cycle, the New York Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s corrupt business dealings, being suppressed just weeks before the election.

The Hunter Biden laptop bombshell proved that Joe Biden has been in the pay of our communist Chinese enemies. Widespread knowledge of this revelation would have spared America the humiliating catastrophe of his handlers taking power. But this information was kept from the public by the liberal media establishment and Big Tech. Twitter was so ham-fisted as to lock the account of the New York Post for having made discoveries unflattering to Biden.

Until recently, Americans would never have tolerated such infringement on free speech. Maybe the country really has been fundamentally transformed.

Twitter enjoys legal protection as a neutral platform. It is anything but:

The emphasis throughout Twitter’s announcement is on the curation and filtering of information from the company down to users, as opposed to the old norm, which was users discovering information that was popular with other users, through trending hashtags and other mechanisms to surface popular content organically. Today, Twitter wants users to receive information from the top down, not the bottom up.

As the Democratic Party consolidates power, “misinformation” will be repressed by Big Tech with increasing aggressiveness.

Facebook Forbids Noticing Redefinition of “Recession”

As most know, the Biden Regime has attempted to redefine the word “recession” so as to avoid responsibility for having caused one with its insane and malevolent policies. Nonetheless, Facebook is suppressing this fact:

Regardless of the propaganda excreted by Fakebook’s partisan “fact-checkers,” two consecutive quarters of negative growth is the definition of recession everyone has been going by — including Brian Deese himself:

However, anything that undermines the Biden Regime is thoughtcrime per the Big Tech oligarchs who installed it in power.

NBC News Calls for More Pro-LGBT Censorship

The difference between an activist and a journalist is that activists shout their opinions at you, whereas journalists adopt a pose of objectivity while cherry-picking Experts to shout their opinions at you. An example is a recent NBC piece calling for even more draconian censorship on social media so as to silence resistance to the LGBT agenda:

For the second year in a row, the five largest social media platforms received failing grades on LGBTQ safety, according to a report from GLAAD, an LGBTQ media advocacy group.

“Safety” in this context means “compliance.”

GLAAD’s second annual Social Media Safety Index graded Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok and YouTube on LGBTQ safety, privacy and expression using 12 LGBTQ-specific standards. GLAAD found that all five of the platforms scored below 50%.

To score 100% would require every public communication to be devoted to obsequiously praising sexual perversion and the corruption of children.

“LGBTQ people are under attack right now,” Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of GLAAD, said in the report.

LGBT militants are at the top of the cultural Marxist hierarchy. They represent a tiny minority of the population, yet dictate terms of existence to the rest of society as they defile cherished institutions that have endured for millennia. Yet we are told they are put upon, on the grounds that “far-right pundits and even some Republican officials” refer to the LGBT groomers who have become so prevalent in our society as “groomers.”

NBC News describes attempts to protect children from groomers who sexualize, homosexualize, and transsexualize underage victims as “targeting transgender youth” — as if the children were depraved before the groomers got to them. As usual, decent, sane people who try to do good are cast as the villains.

To promote the corruption of children in particular and LGBT domination of American culture in general, social media platforms need to crack down harder on dissident thought — i.e., all criticism of the LGBT agenda. GLAAD provides NBC with shovelfuls of meaningless data on how oppressed crybullying LGBTers feel themselves to be as a result of reading things online that they don’t agree with.

Social media platforms will be happy to respond to this pressure with still more censorship. But Democrats will no doubt pass legislation making it mandatory anyway.

The piece adds balance at the end by quoting someone who believes in free speech and moral decency. Just kidding; that would get an activist I mean journalist fired at NBC News.

Twitter Okays Death Threats but Bans Jordan Peterson

Jordan Peterson has been banned from Twitter for refusing to delete the following:

Remember when Pride was a sin? And Ellen Page just had her breasts removed by a criminal physician.

The reference is to a mentally ill actress who had herself surgically mutilated by a scoundrel in the delusional belief this would transform her into a man.

Why was this tweet such a serious thought crime that Twitter would rather further discredit itself by banning a major intellectual figure than let it stand? Why would Peterson rather die than delete it? Read his explanation here or watch him explain below:

Meanwhile, as intellectual giants are banned for observing that women are not men, Twitter has no problem with calls to assassinate a Supreme Court justice for doing his job by defending the Constitution from politicization:

Shortly after Roe v. Wade was overturned, a Twitter user with the handle @redfrnn, who has since deleted his or her or xis account, tweeted: “i’m going to assassinate supreme court justice Clarence Thomas.” The same Twitter user had just before that tweeted a photo of a gun, saying: “im considering buying a mac mini.” Twitter, however, did not find this murderous psychopath to be in violation of their rules, despite the fact that those rules say, “You may not threaten violence against an individual or a group of people.”

Thomas is a conservative, so he doesn’t count as a person from the viewpoint of the radical leftists running Twitter. Neither does Donald Trump:

On New Year’s Day 2022, Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, tweeted, “Martyr Soleimani is an eternal reality that will live on forever. His assassins – including Trump & the like – will go down in history’s garbage bin, but of course after receiving retribution in this world for the crime they committed.” That “retribution in this world” bit was a clear threat, but Twitter did nothing to restrict Khamenei’s account.

Qasem Soleimani was a top terrorist taken out on Trump’s orders.

Nor did Twitter do anything to the account of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps when it tweeted nine days later, “The Islamic Republic of Iran considers vengeance against those responsible for the Baghdad crime to be the right of all believers; whether they are drops in the ocean or bits of sand in the desert they’ll seek vengeance next to the criminals’ homes.”

This was a call to all Muslims worldwide to assassinate a former US President — whom Twitter had permanently banned on a bogus charge of encouraging violence.

Imagine a ballgame where the referees are avid fans of one team, vehemently hate the other team, and don’t even pretend to be fair. That’s the situation we are in with liberals controlling the information infrastructure.

Google’s Doodle Tells Us to Revere Kiyoshi Kuromiya

Once again, Google rams moonbattery down the Internet’s throat with its doodle for the day:

As liberals systematically cancel our national heroes (Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, et al.), they are to be replaced by new ones, like Kiyoshi Kuromiya.

Who was he? Let’s let liberals describe his significance. From way-left Wikipedia:

[C]ivil rights, anti-war, gay liberation, and HIV/AIDS activist … Kiyoshi Kuromiya was born on May 9, 1943, in Wyoming at the Heart Mountain Concentration Camp…

Note the capitalization, as if FDR’s wartime internment camps literally called themselves concentration camps. The actual name of the place was the Heart Mountain Relocation Center. The purpose of this subtle lie is to equate America with Nazi Germany and the USSR, which had proper concentration camps where people tended not to survive for long. Kuromiya was destined for wokeness, born oppressed by America’s horrific iniquity…

Back to Wikipedia’s hagiography:

Kuromiya came out as gay to his parents when he was roughly 8 or 9 years old living in California and says that he was fairly sexually active.

Mozart started composing at age 4 and performing publicly at age 6. Moonbats answer that with Kuromiya, allegedly active in sexual perversion at age 8.

Here I was thinking that LGBT children existed only in the fetid imaginations of leftists. Given the current emphasis on homosexualizing children, it is no wonder Google wants Kuromiya in the spotlight.

Kuromiya was even arrested precociously, confirming that he was born to be righteously oppressed:

He was arrested in a public park with a 16-year-old boy when he was only 9 or 10 for lewdness and was put in juvenile hall for three days as punishment.

Kuromiya got to attend an Ivy League school on a scholarship. This did not produce notable gratitude.

Kuromiya’s increased involvement in [leftist politics] during the early 1960s stemmed largely from his sexual orientation and his feeling that the University of Pennsylvania was very closeted.

Highlights of his résumé:

In 1965 Kuromiya and other activists took over Independence Hall in Philadelphia…

On October 20 and 21, 1967, Kuromiya joined a large demonstration organized by Abbie Hoffman that attempted to levitate the Pentagon building by joining hands around it in a performance art protest. When the levitation failed, Kiyoshi joined other protesters in taking police barricades to make bonfires all the way around the length of the Pentagon. …

Kuromiya co-founded the Gay Liberation Front (GLF) in 1969 following the Stonewall riots in 1969 with Basil O’Brien, who he met later while attending a Homophile Action League meeting in Philadelphia. … [T]he GLF was more radical than some of its peer organizations that formed after Stonewall. Under Kuromiya’s leadership, the GLF recruited a diverse array of people and stood in solidarity with groups such as the Black Panther Party…

After being diagnosed with AIDS himself in 1989, Kuromiya only intensified his advocacy work.

If you don’t want to live in a society where heroes have been replaced by moonbats like Kiyoshi Kuromiya, push back against Google, Wikipedia, and the rest of the liberal establishment with everything you have.

Dems Drive Out Elon Musk

Be easy on Elon Musk for having bought into the marketing campaign that the Party of Government was ever the “kindness party.” Most of us did at one point, which is unsurprising, considering that it runs the media. The important thing is that he is awake and smelling the coffee now, having been driven out of the Democratic Party by the divisiveness and intolerance that have become its most conspicuous characteristics.

The long knives are already out for Musk for bucking the liberal establishment by promising to allow free speech on Twitter. Biden has sicced the SEC on him. Meanwhile, Charles Gasparino shouts that Musk might go to jail if he doesn’t go through with the Twitter deal.

If the deal does go through, Musk will have a major housekeeping task ahead of him. The San Francisco company is infested with leftists. Twitter executive Alex Martinez demonstrated the kindness of moonbats by mocking him as “a loony toon” with “special needs” for having been diagnosed withy Asperger syndrome. He also reaffirmed that Twitter as currently staffed adamantly opposes free speech:

“The rest of us who have been here believe in something that’s good for the planet and not just to give people free speech,” Martinez insisted. He later added, “People don’t know how to make a rational decision if you don’t put out — correct things that are supposed to be out in the public, right?”

There is no point sharing opinions with each other in the town square of social media, because our Silicon Valley overlords will tell us what to think.

Facebook Cripples Back the Blue Golf Tournament

To learn what it means to let moonbats like Mark Zuckerberg control the flow of information, ask Boston real estate executive Dan DiMatteo, who has organized a “Back the Blue” golf tournament for June 13 — with no help from our Big Tech overlords:

He just wants to put on a friendly golf tournament to help promote police, first responders and those serving in the military. The goal is to raise $100,000 to “distribute evenly” to the tournament’s four sponsors.

Those sponsors are: State Police Association of Massachusetts Benevolent Fund, Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Foundation, Boston Police Foundation and Tunnel to Towers Foundation.

“It’s a charity golf tournament,” DiMatteo told the Herald, but Meta has suddenly cracked down on posting anything on their platforms.

He calls it “a black and white example of censoring.” What do you expect, when you promote such a controversial cause?

DiMatteo said he’s posted to Instagram and Facebook before and spends money on the sites for his real estate business.

But all the hoops he’s being made to jump through smacks of a left-wing, anti-police agenda playing out in the metaverse.

DiMatteo should host a looting tournament to raise money so that Black Lives Matter grifters can buy another mansion. Fakebook will grease the skids for him.

For more on creepy cyborg Mark Zuckerberg’s deleterious effect on American society, watch Dinesh D’Souza’s 2000 Mules. It suggests how some of the $419 million Zuckerberg pumped into the 2020 election was spent. Spoiler alert: someone had to pay scumbags to dump enough illicit ballots into drop boxes to tip a few swings states in favor of Biden.

Nina Jankowicz Wants to Edit Other People’s Tweets

What kind of power will Nina Jankowicz wield as head of Biden’s Ministry of Truth? How about editing other people’s tweets?

In a newly released video clip, Biden disinformation czar Nina Jankowicz demands that “trustworthy verified people” like her be given the power to edit other people’s tweets, making Twitter more like Wikipedia.

The idea for now is to “add context” that disputes tweets the Biden Regime doesn’t like, as an interim step toward a straightforward ban on anything that undermines the liberal narrative. She gives the example of tweets that refer to the election fraud that helped Biden and his handlers to power.

Twitter already slaps warning labels on such tweets, but now Jankowicz wants approved regime propagandists to be empowered to insert their narrative on an individual basis.

Nina doesn’t like it that some people who deviate from Democrat ideology have the blue check, but that shouldn’t be hard to fix.

Elon Musk cannot take over Twitter soon enough. At least then it won’t be on the same team as Jankowicz.

Our liberal rulers claim authority to dictate what is true and what is false. Meanwhile, they are so nuts that some of the moonbats conspiring with Jankowicz were wearing Covid muzzles for a Zoom call, as if the ChiCom virus could be spread over the Internet:

Liberal Twitter Meltdown Tells You All You Need to Know

Of all the media meltdowns over Twitter potentially allowing free speech under Elon Musk’s ownership, this clip of MSNBC host Ari Melber may be the most revealing:

Squawks Melber:

“If you own all of Twitter or Facebook or what have you, you don’t have to explain yourself. You don’t even have to be transparent. You could secretly ban one party’s candidate or all of its candidates, all of it nominees. Or you could just secretly turn down the reach of their stuff and turn up the reach of something else and the rest of us might not even find about it ’til after the election.”

This is exactly what liberals have exploited their control of social media to do. As Jason Rantz puts it, “He’s merely reciting what Twitter did to conservatives.” Twitter is infamous for shadow-banning. Its aggressive suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story, which implicated Joe Biden in treasonously taking payoffs from our communist Chinese enemies in exchange for influence, possibly cost America the 2020 election.

Mark Dice weighs in, and warns that the liberal establishment will now come after Musk with all its vindictive viciousness, with the intention of totally destroying him for disrupting the left-wing monopoly on control of the information highway:

No one seriously expects Musk to transform Twitter from a left-wing to a right-wing platform. The hope on the right and the fear on the left is that he will make good on his promise to make it a neutral platform that honors the fundamental American principle of free speech. That this sets liberals’ hair on fire tells you all you need to know about them.

Google Docs to Automatically Alert Users to Thoughtcrime

Excisions from the Newspeak Dictionary come so fast and furious that even the most devoutly obedient liberal runs the risk of cancelation by his own mob for using a previously innocuous but now forbidden word. To address this problem, Google will automatically present warnings when people stray from political correctness by using disfavored terms like “policeman” and “landlord”:

The warnings will alert users that what they have typed “may not be inclusive to all readers,” while suggesting users should “Consider using different words,” offering woke corrections like ‘police officer’ or ‘property owner’.

Other words regarded as offensive include “motherboard” and “mankind.”

This Google Docs feature is on by default for “enterprise-level users.” No doubt applications will be found for this technology on the Google search engine.

Eventually, Google will devise an intracranial chip that automatically blocks and replaces incorrect thoughts. That is the ultimate objective of the liberal war on our vocabulary.

Elon Musk Has Already Won

It may never be known whether Elon Musk thought the liberal establishment would let him buy Twitter or if he has just been trolling it. Regardless, he has already done more to benefit Western Civilization than anyone since the days of Reagan, Thatcher, and John Paul II.

This is the Information Age; our rulers are the information gatekeepers. They are left-wing authoritarians who do not mean us well. Musk’s great service lies in making this so obvious that no one could fail to notice it.

Nice as it would be to see a conservative challenge the leftist monopoly on the information infrastructure, Musk coming forward as a neutral proponent of free speech is better still. This isn’t right versus left. It is freedom versus authoritarianism.

Even if the bad guys win by stopping him from buying Twitter, it will be a pyrrhic victory because now everyone knows they are the bad guys. By causing them to panic at the possibility of a free speech absolutist challenging their control of public discourse, potentially moving the Overton Window back toward the way normal people think, Musk has goaded our rulers into revealing their true faces.

Stammers MSNBC anchor Katy Tur:

“Elon Musk wants to buy it, but there are massive, life and globe-altering consequences for just letting people run wild on the thing.”

Journalists favored free speech. But they have been replaced by party apparatchiks like Tur. Free speech is literally the last thing they want.

Tur also expressed serious concern that Musk might allow former President Donald Trump back on Twitter after he was permanently banned in 2021.

Just a few years ago, who would have believed that it would one day be considered acceptable in America to ban a former POTUS from speaking publicly? We have entered tinpot dictatorship territory.

Paul Joseph Watson revels in the stupendous salt mine of bedwetters’ tears produced by Katie Tur and the rest of our information overlords:

Silicon Valley is grounded in the same left-wing authoritarianism as the “mainstream” media. Twitter would rather go up in smoke than let Musk turn it into a platform for the honest and open exchange of ideas. To stop him, it has resorted to the poison pill strategy:

The pro-censorship, leftist-run social media platform has adopted a Shareholder Rights Plan, a corporate tactic used to deter buyouts.

Colloquially known as a “poison pill,” the measure allows existing shareholders to buy more shares at a discounted price, diluting the stake of any shareholder seeking to acquire the whole company and theoretically raising the costs of doing so.

This desperate maneuver is expected to send the value of Twitter stock downward:

Cheer up, liberals. If Musk manages to beat all of you playing by the rules, you can just bring in Big Government to overrule the rules:

Friday on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” former Securities and Exchange Commission chairman Harvey Pitt warned of a possible effort by the government or Congress to prevent Tesla CEO Elon Musk from purchasing social media giant Twitter.

Pitt said the Biden administration “is pretty much guaranteed to oppose” Musk’s bid to buy the social media company.

No matter; Musk has already won this battle. Twitter allowing freedom of speech would be a dream come true, but it would not be enough by itself to overthrow the liberal ruling class and reinstate American values. It took the radical left decades to seize control of all the major institutions; liberating them won’t happen overnight. To win this long war, the public must be made aware that the progressives who control Twitter and the rest of the information establishment are a hostile occupying force opposed to our values and freedom — that they are our enemy. Musk has accomplished this.

Can Elon Musk Liberate Twitter?

Progressives have the overwhelming advantage that they have infiltrated, subverted, and taken control of every major institution, exactly as the communist Antonio Gramsci advised them to do. But they have an Achilles heel: their ideology stinks.

Pull on any of the many loose threads that dangle from it and the whole pile of lies comes unraveled. This is why Big Tech cannot permit open discussion of key liberal narratives like the global warming hoax.

Imagine if leftists did not control the information highway. Imagine if Twitter were a neutral platform rather than an arm of the Democratic Party that is run by an authoritarian openly hostile to free speech.

Thanks to Elon Musk becoming Twitter’s biggest stockholder, we can do more than imagine; we can hope. Twitter isn’t going to embrace free speech overnight, but change for the better is on the horizon:

No wonder the militant moonbats at Twitter who are used to getting their way are now freaking out.
