“So, the committee wants to prosecute people for criticizing politicians? I kind of thought that’s where we were going. That should work out well.”
People like Diane Feinstein have wanted to curtail speech forever. She doesn’t want you to have a gun. She doesn’t want you to read any stories that challenge the official narrative coming from the approved media sources. Basically she’s against the first 2 amendments to the Constitution. She is a controller. She has contempt for The People. Yet she’s a “liberal” somehow.
Many social justice warriors would like to shut down speech to a large degree also. Some words must never be uttered. And even then watch out for “micro-aggressions”. “I don’t think I like your tone Mister! Hierarchy! Misogyny!”
Both the SJWs and the control freaks in government use political correctness to limit the range of discussion. And they will limit it as much as they possibly can. Feinstein and Adam Schiff even sent a letter to Twitter yesterday “requesting” that the company limit the use of the #releasethememo hashtag. Because, you know, Russians are manipulating it and brainwashing the herd or some such nonsense. That’s not an attempt at intimidation or anything. That isn’t just straight up crony nastiness right there. Oh no.
Feinstein, Schiff, and their fellow travelers just don’t want certain views circulating. People questioning the drone coming from CNN and the DNC need to be silenced you see.
This shouldn’t be happening in this country.
As we’ve said many times. FREE SPEECH! FREE SPEECH! One thousand times! FREE SPEECH!
“Twitter is sending out messages to people telling them that, for their own good, they are documenting that the user has either followed, cited or re-tweeted an account Twitter decided is linked to Russia & its propaganda efforts,” journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted over the weekend. “That’s not creepy at all.”
The thread to which Greenwald linked featured an example of such an email, which is connected to Twitter’s promise last fall to the U.S. Congress to cooperate “with congressional investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.” The company was caught up in the frenzy in Washington, D.C. to pin the country’s political turmoil not on angry Americans, but rather on Russia’s clumsy, low-rent news-spinning through social media.
“As previously announced,” Twitter notes on its blog, “we identified and suspended a number of accounts that were potentially connected to a propaganda effort by a Russian government-linked organization… Consistent with our commitment to transparency, we are emailing notifications to 677,775 people in the United States who followed one of these accounts or retweeted or liked a Tweet from these accounts during the election period.”
Ummm… Thanks for that, Twitter. I’d hate to think that I’m paying attention to the “wrong” people.
But maybe I’m also not paying attention to the right people—as decided by the powers-that-be.
