Liberal cancel culture is real and gaining strength.
Donald Trump and his allies got some bad news.
And that came when Joe Biden was presented with one plan to cancel Sean Hannity.
One of the consequences of Joe Biden becoming President is an emboldened left believing there were no more guardrails to prevent them from flexing unlimited power now that Democrats controlled the White House and both houses of Congress.
This “damn the torpedoes” mentality manifested itself in the Democrats looking to label all 75,000,000 Trump voters as domestic terrorists and the quest to restrict the First Amendment to shut down all political speech Democrats disagree with.
Journalists and elected Democrats often disguised their desire to muzzle conservatives as “fighting disinformation.”
The New York Times “misinformation” reporter Kevin Roose presented a blueprint for Joe Biden to create a “reality czar” whose job would consist of censoring news Democrats didn’t like and crafting an official government approved version of the news that social media platforms should amplify.
“This task force could also meet regularly with tech platforms, and push for structural changes that could help those companies tackle their own extremism and misinformation problems. (For example, it could formulate ‘safe harbor’ exemptions that would allow platforms to share data about QAnon and other conspiracy theory communities with researchers and government agencies without running afoul of privacy laws.) And it could become the tip of the spear for the federal government’s response to the reality crisis,” Roose reported.
The Orwellian language used by the left to justify government censorship of the news to allow Democrats to control the flow of information to the public reaches a new low every week.
CNN’s Brian Stelter said Americans should not look at government approved versions of the news or forcing Fox News off the air as “censorship.”
Instead, Stelter argued they should view silencing conservative media as a “harm reduction model.”
Similarly, Roose proposes a “reality czar” to marshal the powers of government to vet news sources and suppress outlets whose viewpoint government regulators disagree with while rewarding other outlets that produce Biden administration-friendly coverage with greater reach and bigger audiences.
In the 2020 election, the media successfully meddled in the election to affect the outcome of the race.
Big Tech and the mainstream media censored or suppressed negative news about Joe Biden such as Tara Reade’s credible allegations of sexual assault or the New York Post bombshell about the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop.
That success only emboldened the left to eliminate a free and fair press in America.
A “reality czar” with the power to restrict Americans from hearing news stories the government deems harmful would forever end the idea that America is an experiment in self-governance.
