The free press in America is dead.
Dead as a doornail. Deceased. It has assumed room temperature.
Call it the late, great First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States.
Anyone can be censored, canceled or suppressed by the official “mainstream media” and its masters ruling from atop Google, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter – even a sitting president, Donald J. Trump, can be silenced.
Each day brings the names of the latest victims of eradication, ex-communication and blacklisting.
The words are still legible in the Constitution, but they no longer adhere to current reality: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Our country is in big trouble.
The words above are excerpted from a recent article on WND promoting another potential competing platform to Big Tech.
As you well know, Big Tech are (in my opinion) racketeering and monopolizing most of today’s online “speech”.
Just look at the absolutely incredible number of people and organizations who have been de-platformed and silenced by the Big Tech evil empire. Those who tow the far-left narrative are allowed to stay. The rest are cast aside.
Well, the reason I’m writing this today, is to point out the massive “vacuum” that Big Tech has created within the online sphere. Conservatives and many, many others are looking for alternative platforms.
Although Big Tech is MASSIVE and RICH and POWERFUL, the fact is there are millions upon millions of Americans who know what’s really going on. That’s powerful too.
Eventually there will be alternatives that actually “stick” and begin to gain traction. Unless we go full-on Marxist here, there will be no stopping the logical outcome (it seems).
For example, look at what has happened with Newsmax. They have shot to the top among conservative news seekers. And it happened fast. Especially after FOX turned to the dark side.
I heard that Parler is back up today after having been de-platformed about a month ago. They had to build their own server farm instead (of renting). That’s what’s happening. People and organizations and alt-platforms are getting back up after having been bashed to the ground by the Goliath.
If leftists Big Business and Big Tech choose to cancel our businesses, our platforms, well, we will build our own. Separate from them if that’s what it takes.
