The New York Times just did one thing to ban conservatives online

Published

on

The once-respected New York Times has become nothing more than a rag where liberal elites rip on President Trump constantly.

No matter what Trump is doing to help America, they are firmly opposed to him.

And they just took things a step further by doing one thing to ban conservatives online.

Much of President Trump’s rise took place online.

While the entire mainstream media was working overtime to claim that President Trump is a joke candidate and a racist, independent online voices were spreading the truth about him.

So naturally, the mainstream media is now targeting these voices, trying to shut them up to regain the power they once had.

The New York Times did that over the weekend with a sensational front-page article titled “The Making of a YouTube Radical – How the Site’s Algorithms Played Into the Hands of the Far Right.”

The ominous-sounding article tells the story of a young man named Caleb Cain, who was introduced to “far-right” content through the video-sharing website YouTube.

They begin the article by stating, “Caleb Cain was a college dropout looking for direction. He turned to YouTube. … Soon, he was pulled into a far-right universe, watching thousands of videos filled with conspiracy theories, misogyny and racism.”

It went on, saying he was never actually “radicalized” towards racist content:

“Mr. Cain never bought into the far right’s most extreme views, like Holocaust denial or the need for a white ethnostate, he said. Still, far-right ideology bled into his daily life. He began referring to himself as a “tradcon” — a traditional conservative, committed to old-fashioned gender norms. He dated an evangelical Christian woman, and he fought with his liberal friends.”

Further down, the article states Cain eventually changed his views after watching left-wing videos.

So, in the end, he was never actually “radicalized.”

But the insidious nature of the New York Times’ article goes into who they claim “radicalized” Cain.

On the front cover of the newspaper, it features a number of conservative thinkers.

Among them is libertarian economist Milton Friedman, conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, and clinical psychologist and New York Times bestselling author Jordan Peterson.

The insinuation is that those voices, which represent a large segment of the American population’s views, are gateways to radicalization and need to be silenced.

Already, social media platforms are shutting down conservative thinkers left and right, and it is clear that The New York Times is trying to get more of those voices shut down, until conservative viewpoints aren’t allowed at all online.

Do you think conservatives should be allowed on social media platforms?

    The media outlets like the ny times are the true enemies of the people. They hide behind and abuse their 1st Amendment priviledge to spread their “Goebbels like” propaganda. For decades we all knew they were “left leaning” and were ok with that. Now they promulgate lies and encourage attacks against anyone who isn’t a left wing ideologue. We are already in a “cool” civil war, for the most part, but the left wing is starting to ramp it up with their rhetoric in an attempt to make it a “hot” one. They are just as dangerous and harmful as the invaders coming across our borders and the democrats that encourage our destruction, and abet it.

    Now you know how Hitler and Stalin gained so much power, if you are not allowed to speak against the the opposition, they win. Our First Amendment is supposed to protect us from censorship but the media both social and MSM are firmly in the communist camp so unless they are declared “public utilities ” and subject to the First Amendment this can only end in dictatorship or civil war.

    “The job of the academic,” Sayet says, “Is for someone who doesn’t do anything to lecture to children, who don’t do anything, about the people who do things and did things, and the things that they did and they do.”

    Why does the liberal flock to journalism? Because “the journalist doesn’t do anything.”

    “The job of the journalist,” Sayet says, “Is for someone who doesn’t do anything, to report to the people who do things, the things that the other people who do things were doing while they were out doing things.”

    Why does the liberal flock to government? As conservatives have rightly pointed out for decades, “the government doesn’t do anything.”

    “The job of people like Barack Obama, who have never done anything,” Sayet says, ” is to order the people who do everything to stop doing anything the way that they do those things. Ironically, if the people who do everything don’t listen to the people who have never done anything, then the people who have never done anything will put the people who do everything in jail where they won’t be able to do anything, but where they will meet another Democratic party constituency.”

    How are we allowing tech companies rob us of our first Amendment rights? They should not be allowed to censor in this fashion. They should abide by the same laws in place for television, radio, etc. Those outlets have laws barring content that is really dangerous while allowing for all sides of an argument to be heard. The problem with the left is that if people actually started reading and listening to people like Ben Shapiro and Candace Owens, they would realize that the left is insane.

    All these Liberal magazines and papers along with most Social Media are really run by Communist in Liberal clothing. There way too many commie sympathizers here in the USA that are coming pretty clews to treasonous and might just be eligible for a long prison term as traitors.

    Yes we have an amendment that guaranties freedom of speech but as the liberal progressives get more and more power we will have to fight for it. Of course conservatives should have the same platform as the liberals

    The NY Times is unquestionably fake news in every way ! Now it is being proven ! When they really go to war physically as we as in the media with Gods chosen people Conservatives. I have decided the progressive’s, all liberals and Leftists are very much afraid and not at all sure themselve,s about their philophy, or their message! For that reason they fear Conservatives and our message of what our Fore Fathers layed out in the principals of Democracy and Capitalism! Since it is apparent the liberal / leftists, progressives do fear the message of the Conservative movement they will do anything to keep this message away from their followers since it wuld be very possible those in their group that can think for themselves or be able to reason a plan would most likely leave their group and go the the Conservative movement !

    I’m sure glad that I have never wasted my money on the NY Times. This is America and we do still have the first Amendment on our side.
    You should try reading the Bible, where Jesus told his disciples if they wanted to catch fish to go to the right side of the boat, and they caught plenty of fish. So you may need to find this story.

    As I am a racist, misogynist, black hating white New York Times reporter, now know that there are millions of dollars currently being used to shut down my New York Times paper. My editor has regular meetings stating that any reporter or columnist who reports positive news about America must be terminated and criminal charges filed against him or her. For gender neutrality, we can no longer use terms like he, she, him, her, his, hers, Mr. or Mrs. We must refer to each other as Comrade Bill or Comrade Shelly.

    All of our “news” outlets are constantly trying to control what we read, see or say. That is why they are the enemy of the people. This is what they do in communist countries. They also try to imprison their political opponents too…hmmm sounds familiar doesn’t it? They are working hand in hand with our democrat party. They think we are stupid. They think they are so much smarter than the average American. They are used to us not having a voice. Not having an advocate. Not having anyone who has our back. That is why they hate Trump. Their day will come. TERMS LIMITS!!!

    The left wants Communism, so they can have the money and control everything we eat, think and do. One thing I don’t get is why so many movie and tv stars are so far left, don’t they get it they won’t make the same kind of money under that kind of rule. How many moveis or music do you ever hear coming from Russia?

You won’t believe what The View wants to do to Tucker Carlson and Tulsi Gabbard

Published

on

The war in Ukraine has sparked a global crisis with many devastating consequences.

Worse yet, the war propaganda coming from the so-called “mainstream” media is appalling.

And you won’t believe what The View wants to do to Tucker Carlson and Tulsi Gabbard.

The Democrat Media Complex and the warmongers of both parties are itching for escalation in the war in Ukraine.

On the Left, Congressman Eric Swalwell floated the idea of expelling Russian students from the country.

Neoconservatives on the Right like Adam Kinzinger – whose Congressional district was gerrymandered out of existence by Illinois Democrats – wants a no-fly zone over Ukraine, and Senator Lindsey Graham called for someone in the Russian government to assassinate Vladimir Putin.

People who are calling for peace and don’t want to see brinkmanship with a nuclear power, and people who are pushing back against dangerous war propaganda have been labeled “collaborators,” and even “traitors.”

Such is the case with Fox News host Tucker Carlson and former Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard.

That’s why the harpies on The View want Carlson and Gabbard investigated and arrested by the Department of Justice.

So-called “Republican” Ana Navarro, who hasn’t espoused a real conservative opinion in a decade, argued, “I think DOJ (Department of Justice) in the same way it is setting up a task force to investigate oligarchs, should look into people who are Russian propagandists and shilling for Putin.”

The establishment is so hot for war, combating propaganda and resisting American involvement is somehow tantamount to “shilling for Putin.”

Whoopi Goldberg got in on the act and said, “They used to arrest people for doing stuff like this. If they thought you were colluding with a Russian agent. If they thought you were putting out information or taking information and handing over to Russia. They used to actually investigate stuff like this.”

Goldberg’s statement is mind-blowing considering she was highly critical of the Hollywood blacklist of the past.

There were communists in the State Department, media, entertainment, and academia that were actually collaborating with the Soviet Union, and the Left believed the McCarthy Era was the worst thing that ever happened in America.

It’s impossible to oppose McCarthyism and call for Carlson and Gabbard to be investigated and arrested.

There is no way that the panelists of The View would have been on board with arresting people who opposed the Vietnam War.

Carlson, who has the top rated show in cable news, is probably the strongest anti-war voice on television.

And Gabbard, a former Army reserve officer, became persona non grata for her anti-war positions.

The ladies of The View and the Left more broadly are exposing themselves to be authoritarians.

One journalist’s lawsuit could end Big Tech censoring conservatives

Published

on

Social media companies suppressing conservative speech is getting out of hand.

Now someone is fighting back.

And one journalist’s lawsuit could end Big Tech censoring conservatives.

Twitter banned former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson for supposedly spreading “misinformation” about the coronavirus vaccine.

Berenson’s “crime” was posting that the COVID vaccine did not stop transmission of the virus.

In Berenson’s lawsuit, the former New York Times reporter argues that his comments were objectively true.

Berenson also cites California law, which defines common carriers as a platform that “offers to the public to carry persons, property, or messages.”

This argument could prove vital as Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas hinted in an April opinion that Big Tech companies fall under the definition of a common carrier like the phone or mail company, which would limit the ability of Big Tech to censor speech.

Berenson also argued that Twitter acted as an agent of the government to censor his speech, citing Twitter banning Berenson shortly after Joe Biden called on Big Tech companies to censor “misinformation” about the coronavirus.

“The extraordinarily close nexus between the July 2021 statements by senior executive branch officials—including President Biden himself—calling for censorship by such companies and Twitter’s corresponding immediate actions against Mr. Berenson,” the lawsuit added.

There is already established case law that the government cannot pressure private companies to carry out actions that would be unconstitutional if the government performed them.

That argument – as well as the common carrier contention – lays out two legal paths for Berenson to argue his case and potentially find a receptive audience at the Supreme Court.

Conservatives waited for years for a manner in which to secure legal recourse to Big Tech’s ideologically motivated censorship.

Thanks to Berenson’s lawsuit and Big Tech’s overreach, they may have finally found a silver bullet.

Big Tech is trying to censor one undeniable truth about the COVID vaccine

Published

on

Social media censorship is out of control.

Ever since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Big Tech began banning users for posting true information.

And now Big Tech is trying to censor one undeniable truth about the COVID vaccine.

According to a new policy implemented by Twitter, the social media platform can now impose penalties up to a permanent suspension for posting that a vaccinated individual can spread COVID.

“When Tweets include misleading information about Covid-19, we may place a label on those tweets that includes corrective information about that claim,” Twitter’s policy reads. “We may apply labels to Tweets that contain, for example . . . false or misleading claims that people who have received the vaccine can spread or shed the virus (or symptoms, or immunity) to unvaccinated people.”

At the start of the pandemic, social media platforms banned users for posting that the virus likely escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China.

Now Twitter is threatening to ban anyone for posting truthful information about vaccinated individuals still being able to spread COVID.

Twitter’s new policy runs contrary to Centers for Disease Control guidelines that state that “risk for SARS-CoV-2 infection in fully vaccinated people cannot be completely eliminated as long as there is continued community transmission of the virus.”

In addition, Nature.com reported on a study published in October, which showed that fully vaccinated individuals possessed a lower risk of spreading COVID, but that spread was still possible and the vaccine’s protection against spread waned over time.

“The authors found that although the vaccines did offer some protection against infection and onward transmission, Delta dampened that effect. A person who was fully vaccinated and then had a ‘breakthrough’ Delta infection was almost twice as likely to pass on the virus as someone who was infected with Alpha. And that was on top of the higher risk of having a breakthrough infection caused by Delta than one caused by Alpha,” Nature.com reported.

One reason so many people do not trust either the vaccines or the authorities promising the vaccines are safe and effective is because no one allows an honest discussion of the vaccines.

Any hint that the vaccines may not be 100% perfect is labeled as misinformation, a conspiracy theory or “anti-vaxx.”

But Twitter censoring people for posting an honest fact that vaccinated people – while at lower risk – can still spread the coronavirus leaves people with the impression that elite institutions have something to hide.
