Ever since Joe Biden took office Democrats and their allies in the corporate media elevated censoring conservative speech to their number one goal.
The top target was always Fox News.
And Joe Biden has one ace up his sleeve that could spell curtains for Fox News.
Joe Biden nominated far-left radical Gigi Sohn to serve on the Federal Communications Commission.
Sohn’s appointment to the FCC represents a direct threat to free speech in America.
In the past, Sohn’s expressed support for the government investigating Fox News.
Back in October of 2020 Sohn demanded Congress hold hearings on Fox News which Sohn falsely smeared as “state-sponsored propaganda.”
“For all my concerns about #Facebook, I believe that Fox News has had the most negative impact on our democracy. It’s state-sponsored propaganda, with few if any opposing viewpoints. Where’s the hearing about that?” Sohn posted on social media.
Of course, Sohn never called out CNN or MSNBC for banning any pro-Trump voice from appearing on their airwaves.
Sohn also called out Sinclair Broadcasting – the conservative media company – that owns a number of local affiliates across the country and demanded the government revoke their licenses unless Sinclair fell in line with the left’s narratives on their local newscasts that aired in markets around America.
“This, and its lack of candor during the failed merger with Tribune, calls into question Sinclair’s fitness to be a broadcast licensee. Will @FCCdo anything when Sinclair’s licenses are up for renewal?” Sohn also wrote on Twitter.
And to cap off the triple crown of supporting suppressing free speech, Sohn made it clear she supported further social media censorship of conservatives by attacking Facebook for supposedly “appeasing” Donald Trump.
“For years, @Twitter & @Facebook tried to appease @realDonaldTrump & other right-wing extremists on phony claims of conservative bias. It didn’t work. Great piece from @StevenLevy @WIRED,” Sohn wrote.
Appeasement in Sohn’s mind meant allowing Donald Trump to freely post on Facebook without the left-wing speech police that moderate the social media platform “fact-checking” Trump and censoring his posts.
In the FCC Sohn will have the ability to approve licenses and hand down regulations that affect social media and cable news.
By attempting to install an authoritarian who fully believes in the left’s new mission of silencing any viewpoint that runs afoul of the Democrat Party’s narratives, Joe Biden just launched a guided missile at the First Amendment.
CNN launched the first salvo in this new battle shortly after Biden took office.
The left-wing network’s so-called “media reporters” harassed cable providers demanding they drop Fox News entirely or move the channel down to a harder to find number.
CNN claimed cable providers needed to suppress or outright censor Fox News because some hosts questioned the outcome of the 2020 election.
If the Senate confirms Sohn to the FCC, CNN and other anti-free speech lunatics will now have an ally in place to make their wish of an America free from dissenting media views a reality.
