First it was social media and big tech censoring conservatives, while claiming they weren't, until proven that they not only were, but they felt so empowered due to their monopolies that they could, and did, deplatform the President of the United States of America.
Tens of thousands of conservatives were then terminated or suspended from their platforms, all for questioning the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election after documented voting irregularities were established in multiple states.
These latest actions followed years of censoring and demonizing conservatives online, from Twitter to Facebook to YouTube and even Google searches.
As trust in the media continues to dwindle, we now see CNN "journalists" demanding that the largest of cable companies deny contracts to conservatives news outlets, like NewsMax TV and One American News (OAN).
"We are going to have to figure out the OAN and Newsmax problem. These companies have freedom of speech, but I'm not sure we need Verizon, AT&T, Comcast and such bringing them into tens of millions of homes," @alexstamos tells @brianstelter.
So, Oliver Darcy,was quoting a guest on Brian Stelters show, then Darcy continues to explain why CNN is pushing to have cable companies censor conservatives news, which would force all Americans to rely on leftist outlets like CNN.
Just a reminder that neither @Verizon, @ATT, nor @comcast have answered any questions about why they beam channels like OAN & Newsmax into millions of homes. Do they have any second thoughts about distributing these channels given their election denialism content? They won't say.
Election denialism.....hmmmmmm. Like questioning why GOP observers were disallowed from observing, despite judges ruling them must allow them. Like suitcases of ballots brought in under the cover of night. Like questioning the changing of votes, caught on camera no less.
So, basically questioning anything the MSM doesn't wants us to question, is a reason to prevent millions of people that make the choice to watch NewsMax and OAN, from doing so.
Sounds a little like they are scared of something, yes?
Social media and big tech have already censored Independent media. Whether by limiting their "reach" on Facebook if the message doesn't toe the liberal Zuckerberg line, shadow banning, banning, or suspending accounts on Twitter for daring to have an opinion other than Jack Dorsey's and his merry little band of communist workers.
Now they are going after conservatives or Independent news outlets on cable TV.
Once they have browbeat network cables providers into dropping NewsMax and OAN, the next step for them is very easy, since most cable providers are also internet providers, with the ability to mass block any URL or website they want to.
If those providers caved to the censoring of conservatives news cable outlets, how long before those same providers nail the rest of us by blocking our websites from their users.
In many places, there is only one choice for a provider, which would leave independent media, nor their own users, with no recourse.
TIME TO BE TRULY INDEPENDENT
While most of us simply do not have pockets deep enough to create an entire conservative network online, including but not limited to; Internet and cable news providers to be a counterbalance to Verison, AT&T, Comcast, etc, Online hosting services, video channels....there are many conservatives, watching how fast Independent and conservatives voices are being wiped out all across the Internet.
Some have already begun. Brighteon and/or Rumble have created their own video platform, used now by many that were banned, or censored on YouTube.
DuckDuckGom or other search engines bypassing the liberally skewed results found on Google and others.
Gab as a free speech alternative to Twitter and even Facebook.
Parler was growing by leaps and bounds, millions were flocking there to get away from Twitter and Facebook and wham, big tech went after them, Amazon terminated their hosting services, and it is an open question whether they will be able to get back online.
The difference between Gab and Parler, is that when Gab first began, they attacked them as well. Hosting providers cut them off, just as they did with Parler, but GAB created their own network, hosting their own website, bypassing the ability of others to cut them off.
As I pointed out just days ago, we need services geared for free speech, free flow of information and a way to to keep the speech Nazis from controlling everything Americans see and hear.
After Twitter banned President Trump from their platform, he took to his @Potus account to inform his followers that his team has been "negotiating with other site," and looking into "building out" a separate platform to counter the liberal control and monopoly of social media, so open communications without fear of censorship.
BOTTOM LINE - A CALL TO ACTION
President Trump cannot do this all himself, we need a network of others to join with him, to create an entire portion of the internet into a complete free speech zone, without thought or fear of anyone being able to silence the truth or even opinions that don't match with their world view.
Make no mistake, any conservative and independent network will draw the attention and ire of the liberal speech and thought police, so of course they will rush right over to find something to whine about, but, when they discover that they can speak freely, but cannot silence conservatives, heads will be exploding all over the place.
We need to cancel the cancel culture.
In the first video below, we see a clip of the speech Nazis over at CNN discussing why Americans should not be allowed to see conservative news on their cable outlets.
