It’s time to stand up and regain our God given rights to free speech
(The Olive) What is more important, reporting the truth of what happened in a given situation – that is what news is after all, or reporting – and I use that word loosely here, whatever complies with the Leftist narrative? I think we all know the answer to that question. Straight up news reporting is just that, reporting what happened, not spinning it for the Liberal narrative or refusing to report some of the facts because said facts do not jive with the narrative of the Left.
When we listen to the so-called news, we are listening to what – and only what the media wants us to know, in other words what befits the Leftist’s agenda.
Take the Parkland school shooting for instance. We heard all about the shooter, then the students that were fighting for gun control etc. Where I ask you was all the reporting on the four sheriff’s deputies that hid behind their cars while Cruz shot and killed people? Or the reporting on the fact that the FBI and the Broward County Sheriff’s department were warned repeatedly about Nicolas Cruz and did nothing?
These things were not widely reported because they did not fit the Leftist’s agenda, gun control – never waste a good crisis.
The mainstream media even with its relentless drive to misdirect and fabricate stories while choosing not to report other legitimate stories has some serious competition these days. This writer had not thought it possible to have to share the crowning jewels of the Leftist Progressive kings of fantasyland such as CNN, MSNBC’s Mika and what’s-his-name, among others with anyone else.
Wow was I ever wrong.
The shenanigans going on over at YouTube, Twitter, Google, and Facebook are every bit as bad as the mainstream media’s antics, quite possibly even worse.
Free speech rights in America are gone
In this day and age, social media is where the vast majority of people go for news, and not just news but commentary on the news and other events. If you cannot voice your opinion on the news and commentary on social media, or you cannot post the news as a writer, investigative reporter, or journalist – do we really have freedom of speech anymore? I submit that we do not.
Just this past week InfoWars YouTube channel was completely demonetized, why? Because they publish material YouTube finds offensive. Now I’m no fan of Info Wars, but if they can do this to Alex Jones – who has well over 2 million followers on YouTube, they can do it to any of us.
YouTube also completely deleted Mike Adams AKA the Health Ranger’s YouTube channel – over 1700 videos, gone. Even videos dealing with raising chickens, donkeys, and home gardening, gone. This is merely the tip of the proverbial iceberg, hundreds of conservative YouTube channels have been issued community strikes (3 strikes your channel is permanently deleted) had videos deleted, or had their entire channel deleted.
The Twit-Face-You Agenda
Why is YouTube suddenly on a wild censoring party? This writer can tell you it definitely has nothing to do with violating community guidelines as YouTube states. That is a bunch of hoggwash – same as David Hogg is a simple student, yup – and pigs fly (let me know if this happens so I can print a retraction). This is all about controlling the narrative, about silencing the dissenting voices, and about covering up the evidence that the Leftist mainstream media’s viewpoint’s and reporting has more holes in it than top notch Wisconsin Swiss cheese.
The so-med terrorist group Twitter has been repeatedly shadow-banning accounts that dare to disturb the peace by dissenting against the Leftist narrative of current events. Accounts are deleted, banned, mocked, ridiculed, threatened, and harassed – all because these people express a different opinion or facts that the Leftist Progressive media and social media giants want suppressed.
Facebook, another popular so-med terrorist group is doing the same thing. Huge pages and groups have been deleted for expressing their contrary views. People are routinely tossed into Facebook jail, items on people’s timelines disappear, and accounts are deleted with no explanation whatsoever. Right Wing News grew to be a huge conservative news website, but the owner shut it down, why? – because most of Right Wing News traffic was derived from Facebook, and Facebook began blocking their traffic (the site is still there but not actively updated). Why? I hate to sound like a broken record here, but it’s the same story throughout all of social media – Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Google must control the narrative. Anything and anyone who does not conform, who dares to question the official narrative as presented by the mainstream media, or who defies the edicts of the social media elites must be silenced at all costs.
If you dare to present facts not reported by the media, if you dare to question the media or social media on anything, if you dare to put in print or record on media anything that is out of compliance with the statements and facts as presented by the media or so-med terrorists – you are or soon will be a target for censoring and/or deletion.
First they came for Infowars, and I did not speak out—because I found them offensive.
Then they came for Geller and Spencer, and I did not speak out—because I found them obnoxious.
Then they came for Prager U, and I did not speak out—because I found them opinionated.
Then they came for a host of others, and I did not speak out—because I have my own life to live.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me. (source)
I wrote in a previous article, The Crucifixion of America on the Altar of Progressivism: How You Can Help Win the War Against The Left things that we can all do to fight back against the so-med terrorist agenda. Terrorists are exactly what these social media tyrants are; make no mistake about it. We are dictated to daily, what to say, what not to say, what information we areallowed to see, what to think, and how to act. If you value your freedom, and your freedom of expression – the time to fight back against social injustice and tyranny is now, today.
If we sit back and do nothing, we are inviting the punishment that we receive. It’s time to make it abundantly clear that the Twit-Face-You agenda will no longer be tolerated, that so-med terrorism will be actively fought against at all times, that the disgraceful lying mainstream media will no longer be tolerated.
Retweet articles that support the conservative viewpoint, share on Facebook, Twitter, and Google these same articles. Write your own articles. Comment on articles, this makes more of a difference than many understand. Use an alternative to YouTube such as D. Tube and BitChute. Coming soon is also Real.Video from Mike Adams, which uses p2p technology and not servers. Read Mike’s article on the new site here, and visit this up-and-coming video site here.
The Twit-Face-You agenda must be defeated. The mainstream media must be shown for the dirty underhanded conniving liars that they are. The Democrats and the RINO’s must be defeated now. If the every day American, the people who art discounted as nothings – do not step up and become somethings, then we will all lose the freedoms we cherish and some mistakenly think we still fully possess.
Mark my words: if this is not stopped now, I predict we will lose all freedom and rights to dissent against the Liberal Left, doing so will result in jail time and or confiscation of property etc. Look at what has happened to those refusing to provide a service to certain people because it violates their beliefs. The Left has already called for the regulation of news sites, as well as calling for the return of the “fairness doctrine” which would mean sites like mine, The Olive Branch Report would be rendered powerless and meaningless.
Google is evil, and evil’s henchmen – Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube must be stopped. The alternative is we the people will no longer have a voice, and the U.S. will become a socialist nation just like Nazi Germany did, you can bank on it. Don’t believe this can happen here? Venezuela was once the richest country in Latin America – now it is a dirt poor, crime ridden, corrupt, chaotic disaster area that people are leaving in droves if they can.
America can fail and fall just as Venezuela did – or we can regroup and heal, and succeed in being great again in all ways.
