Famed philosopher John Locke wrote, “The end of law is not to abolish or restrain, but to preserve and enlarge freedom. For in all the states of created beings capable of law, where there is no law, there is no freedom”. The “American Dream” exists because of the constitutional framework upon which the nation rests.
With tech giants like Google handing over the reigns of the ‘hate-speech’ hunt to groups like the SPLC and ADL, what’s the likelihood that mainstream conservative websites won’t eventually be blacklisted? How long before they are all targeted for demonization or even denial of service because their views don’t conform to the far-left lunacy of the SPLC?
Defending Antifa’s actions at Charlottesville was deemed acceptable in the MSM echo-chamber because it fit their ‘right-wingers are Nazis and it’s okay to punch Nazis’ narrative. But, after Sunday’s brutal Berkeley beat down, any defense of Antifa simply makes the media look like an awful institution that is complicit in their political violence.
The VMA’s ratings are in the toilet because people are sick and tired of being preached at by a bunch of self-righteous social justice warriors with a political ax to grind.
“I’m going to try to save some lives,” said the man from Texas City. He didn’t say black lives, or white lives, young lives, or old lives, rich lives, or poor lives – He just said lives. In times of tragedy, differences in worldview, political affiliation, and skin color never seem to matter. Those things disappear in the face of our shared sense of sympathy for one another’s adversity. It seems people somehow always rediscover their humanity in the midst of disasters such as Hurricane Harvey. Amidst the violent turmoil of the storm, people made peace with one another.
Under these new restrictions, ‘controversial’ content will be subjected to digital exile. If YouTube deems a video ‘offensive’ or ‘extremist’ in nature, it will all but cease to exist on the platform. Flagged videos will be placed in a limited state where they cannot be shared, liked, commented upon, or monitized – shoved into a memory hole and forgotten.
The alt-left’s definition of ‘Nazi’ is purposefully broad and intentionally vague. Through constant accusations of racism and bigotry against their ideological opponents, they have created a fairy tale America in which bands of Nazis are marching through the land, cleverly disguised as Donald Trump supporters. The alt-left creates imaginary ‘Nazis’ to justify their own use of fascist tactics against anyone who opposes them.
