I’m a fan of “southern rock”. Have been since my younger years when I was actually in a band which focused on this genre. Oh the memories…
Anyway, I read an article this morning that caused these lyrics to pop into my mind. From Lynyrd Skynyrd “Don’t Ask Me No Questions” (one of the many songs we played).
Not to disrespect Skynyrd, but today’s Leftist Demoncrat Cabal absolutely does not want us to ask any questions!! Oh boy oh boy… and if we do, and it in any way challenges them, watch out! You WILL be demonized, attacked, and persecuted / punished to the fullest extent.
Here’s a snip from that article which was written by J.B. Shurk over on American Thinker, titled “American Police State: No Questions Allowed”
Why should the 2020 election be viewed as legitimate if the outcome depended entirely upon the unprecedented use of mass mail-in balloting implemented, in some cases, against state law?
Why is Congress not interested in knowing how many mail-in ballots were counted in battleground states that were either received after legal deadlines or in violation of signature-matching requirements or other safeguards for authenticating voter identity?
Why is Congress so incurious about the reality that Donald Trump won nearly every bellwether county from coast to coast by double-digits on his way to losing the election?
Why is Congress so incurious about how an incumbent president could expand his support by over ten million new voters and increase his share of the minority vote, yet still come up short against an opponent with historically low levels of enthusiasm among his own base?
Why is Congress so incurious about the conspiracy between corporate news and social media to censor negative stories about Joe Biden during the campaign while aggressively deplatforming conservative commentary and online social networks of Trump-supporters for years before the 2020 election?
Why is Congress so incurious about a “secret cabal of wealthy and politically connected elites” who conspired “to manipulate the rules and laws of an election in order to win”?
Why does Congress deem such reasonable questions so threatening?
Why do lawmakers insist on threatening American citizens for thinking critically just because Congress itself abandoned critical thinking long ago?
All of these questions are now too dangerous or too inconvenient for the U.S. government to abide. They are too dangerous or too inconvenient for Google, Facebook, and Twitter to tolerate on their “free speech” platforms. They are too dangerous or inconvenient for our domestic intelligence services to permit a private citizen to say out loud. So spurious criminal charges are leveled at ordinary citizens just as they have been leveled at the president of the United States.
When it becomes natural for politicians to flex the muscles of government with the intent of intimidating citizens, and when governing institutions become more concerned with their own survival than with the security and protection of those for whom they were created, then free speech is always the first liberty summarily executed by those in power.
