Morning Greatness: Big Tech Revs Up Censorship Engine Ahead of 2020 Election

Good Wednesday morning.

Here’s what is on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president announces the PREVENTS Task Force Roadmap

Big Tech revs up its censorship engine ahead of 2020 election

So the hot story yesterday was tabloid news organization NBC News complained to Google about The Federalist and got Google to threaten the website’s ability to use Google’s ad network. Ad networks are how the sites you read make money, so the threat was to the viability and existence of The Federalist. NBC proudly announced The Federalist had been punished by the tech behemoth but Google came out and said that they had merely warned The Federalist about some comments in their comment section. Does Google monitor all the comment sections in their ad network? Do they monitor the comment sections of their own company, YouTube? Because YouTube has the most toxic, vile comment section on the internet.

The truth is that NBC News was upset that The Federalist criticized their shitty reporting. Additionally, the corporate media has been gate keeping information from the public for decades. Did you every wonder why the media almost never showed us images of the planes crashing into the Twin Towers on 9/11? Why they write “anti-choice” instead of “pro-abortion” in their news stories? Why they don’t name the political party of corrupt public officials unless they are Republicans? Because they want to control where you direct your outrage. Which explains why they always, always talk about “far right wing groups” like the Bugaloo people or the Proud Boys but pretend they had never heard of the violent progressive, left wing, anarchist group Antifa until the president announced they were domestic terrorists. The corporate media doesn’t want the public to think there is a problem with left wing, Democrat aligned violence. And they certainly didn’t appreciate The Federalist’s WRONGTHINK about the Black Lives Matters protests.

Did we have a week of constant coverage of the Bernie Bro, Rachel Maddow fan that tried to assassinate Steve Scalise and other GOP elected officials? The black separatist that shot up a bunch of Dallas police officers? The San Bernardino massacre by Islamic terrorists? Nope. The corporate media wants to control the narrative and any outlet that doesn’t fall in line is a threat to their agenda of targeting your outrage at their preferred target. YOU. One easy example is the sudden move to pull any positive portrayal of police we see on television. The “Cops” reality show is gone, “LivePD” is gone because the left wing media and progressive movement don’t want people to like the police, they don’t want people to see them keeping people safe because then it would be harder to argue they disproportionately persecute their preferred political allies.

This is why NBC went to Google to break some knee caps at The Federalist and this is why Google punishes other media outlets who aren’t on board with the progressive kookburger politics at the under-regulated tech company.

What was I just talking about? Facebook removes hundreds more accounts as right-wing violence spreads

Fauci explains his lies about wearing virus masks

If you remember at the beginning of the pandemic, we were told not to wear a mask. We were told they weren’t effective and warned not to go and buy up the masks that were available in stores or online. Now, masks are everywhere, many states and businesses require people to wear masks when they are out in public or to enter an establishment. So what happened? Why do masks work now but did not work before?

Dr. Anthony Fauci says our public health overlords “were concerned the public health community, and many people were saying this, were concerned that it was at a time when personal protective equipment, including the N95 masks and the surgical masks, were in very short supply.”

“We wanted to make sure that the people, namely the health care workers, who were brave enough to put themselves in a harm way, to take care of people who you know were infected with the coronavirus and the danger of them getting infected,” Fauci concluded.

Makes you wonder what other misleading but useful information has been coming from these folks, doesn’t it?
