If there is one thing we have learned over the past few years it is that the truth and faith are anathema to the media, liberals, big tech, social media giants and little socialist darling politicians, and must be silenced at all costs.
On Friday, Donald Trump Jr. posted a meme on his Instagram account which showed two images: one showing the new Democrat Socialist NY congresswoman-elect, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, with the caption "Why are you so afraid of a socialist economy?" and another image of President Trump with the caption "Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them." Don Jr.'s note with the meme stated "It's funny cuz it's true."
Ms. Ocasio-Cortez was not amused and responded via Twitter with a threat, stating "I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up. Please, keep it coming Jr - it’s definitely a “very, very large brain” idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month. Have fun!"
Of course after it was pointed out to her that the "House Ethics Manual explicitly prohibits the kind of threat that @Ocasio2018 just issued against @DonaldJTrumpJr for his refusal to support her political agenda," she claimed her statement was not a "threat" because she doesn't have the power to issue subpoenas.
This is a perfect example of the liberal tactics being used to silence those telling the truth. Whether it is threatening them or censoring them or deplatforming them, the whole goal is to prevent the truth from being spread.
The next example deals with attempts at silencing the truth about socialism as well. Respected libertarian pundit, John Stossel, who is an author and television personality, known for his career on ABC News and Fox Business Channel, was informed by YouTube that a video he uploaded to the platform, titled "Socialism Leads to Violence," was put into restricted mode so it could not be viewed by young people.
Via Stossel from his article about this censorship over at TownHall:
My purpose in making the videos is to reach kids, to educate them about the benefits of free markets. It's why I started StosselInTheClassroom.org, a nonprofit that provides videos, plus teachers' guides, free to teachers.
If Google and Facebook decide adults should be "protected" from seeing those videos, too, then "Stossel TV" will go dark.
As Peterson says in the documentary, "Whatever the assumptions are that Google operates under are going to be the filters that determine how the world is simplified and presented."
We asked Google and Facebook to reply to accusations of censorship made by "The Creepy Line" and to explain why YouTube restricted my anti-socialism video but allows other videos that include violence. So far, they haven't replied to questions about bias, but right before this column's deadline, Google emailed us saying they will remove the age restriction on my video. Good.
The video itself shows reporter Gloira Alverez describing how socialism has wrecked economies and led to governments using force against their own citizenry. She interviews multiple people who escaped socialist nations, including a Cuban who explained her father was a political prisoner in Cuba for almost a decade, and the former mayor of a section of Venezuela's capital city, who had to flee to America after refusing to bow to his socialist leaders pressure "to use his police force to brutally suppress protests against the regime."
Firsthand accounts of the brutality of socialism, yet a truth YouTube attempted to silence. Had Strossel not had the respected name recognition that he does, chances are YouTube would not have overturned their decision.
Here is the video they wanted to prevent young people from seeing.
The push for socialism, to the point of silencing anyone that explains the harsh and brutal realities of socialism, is all part of a larger agenda, in where anything that does not match up with liberal ideology must be silenced. This includes the "war on Christmas," which in reality is the persecution of Christians and people of faith.
LIBERAL SOCIALIST AGENDA PERSECUTES CHRISTIANS TO PUSH LGBT IDEOLOGY
“My religious faith dictates that I am to love and respect everyone, whether I agree with them or not. Because we are all made in God’s image,” Vlaming said during Thursday’s public hearing. “I am also aware of, and agree with, speech limits that are placed on public-school teachers concerning matters of religious faith. I represent the state in my role as a public-school teacher and therefore speak with a certain authority. That authority is not to be used to promote any one specific worldview, and I don’t. However, we are here today because a specific worldview is being imposed upon me.”
Interestingly enough, the teacher did agree to use the students new name, he just refused to use any specific pronouns, such as his or her, in reference to the student, so the teacher was not fired for something he said, but he was fired for something he didn't say!
Throughout the educational system we are seeing attacks against religion and religious beliefs, especially during the Christmas season. The most recent examples shown below.
In that last case, Liberty Counsel stepped in and sent a demand letter to the superintendent of Elkhorn Public Schools, requesting the Christmas ban be lifted. Elkhorn Public Schools District administration investigated, found the principal's arbitrary banning of Christmas did not reflect district policy, and overturned her instructions, and the principal has been placed on administrative leave.
Many have referred to these constant attempts as a "war on Christmas," but in this too, I see it as being part of a larger liberal socialist agenda, which can be seen throughout the educational system, pushing the LGBT agenda as early as elementary school and all throughout a child's education, with one University now offering up "queer-themed" coloring books, persecuting Christians for their beliefs, and attacking whites, specifically white male Christians.
Of course they start in schools, they are trying to indoctrinate the next generation into becoming little, social justice warrior, liberal socialists.
The attacks on Christians don't end in the schools though, as can be seen in Facebook's latest warning about a photo that FB deemed to show "violent or graphic" content, so they covered the image, and added a note stating "This photo was automatically covered so you can decide if you want to see it."
One has to wonder which image Facebook algorithms have been taught to consider "violent" or "graphic." The representation of a baby Jesus, or the one of Santa kneeling and praying to Jesus?
Facebook and other big tech giants can deny their bias all day long, but their actions speak far louder than their words.
What ties everything together is liberal ideology, which frankly doesn't mesh with religion, therefore people of faith are under constant attack. Their big government ideology also doesn't mesh well with capitalism, therefore the threats, censorship, and attacks against anyone that highlights the very real fact that socialism almost always leads to violence and death, must be silenced.
The same goes for all the censorship of conservatives on Google, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, the reason they need to silence us, is because they cannot debate their own ideological positions. Their push for socialism cannot stand up to the failures of previous socialist nations. Their attacks against Christians and others of faith stems from their push of the LGBT agenda. Their violent tendencies during protests, are justified by them as "social justice," when in reality it is just another liberal tactic to silence any opinion they do not agree with.
