Under the "Russian Operative" excuse.

It's coming, and it will encapsulate the Social Justice Revolution as part of American Canon, so to criticize it will be subject to censorship.

The public government campaign to pressure Big Tech platforms such as Twitter to crack down on supposed misinformation violates the U.S. Constitution, according to a new lawsuit.

U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy has repeatedly pressed Twitter and other platforms to suppress COVID-19 misinformation, while White House press secretary Jen Psaki has said President Joe Biden thinks it’s the responsibility of social media companies to “stop amplifying untrustworthy content, disinformation, and misinformation, especially related to COVID-19, vaccinations, and elections.”

Those and similar statements made clear the government was demanding action and was contemplating penalties against platforms that did not ramp up censorship, the 65-page suit asserts.

Murthy, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and other Biden administration officials “are not simply colluding with, but instrumentalizing Twitter and other technology companies to effectuate their goal of silencing opinions that diverge from the White House’s messaging on COVID-19,” it says, adding, “That commandeering transforms the Surgeon General’s initiative into government action.”

Alleging the government effort led directly to their suspension from Twitter, three critics of lockdowns and other harsh policies imposed in response to COVID-19 sued HHS, Murthy, and HHS Director Xavier Becerra.

Scientist Mark Changizi, attorney Michael Senger, and stay-at-home father Daniel Kotzin want a federal court in Ohio to declare that the effort violated the First Amendment of the Constitution...

Professor Carl Heneghan, who heads the University of Oxford’s Center for Evidence-Based Medicine, got locked out of his Twitter account that has over 100K followers last weekend for sharing a link to a Mail on Sunday story about an Oxford study into the Covid death toll in the UK.

The study found that the 164,000 number may be exaggerated, thanks to errors in the way fatal outcomes were recorded in hospitals and nursing homes.

American Commissars
Social media platforms are aggressively censoring all who challenge the dominant narrative on Ukraine, the ruling Democratic Party, the wars in the Middle East and the the corporate state.

Chris Hedges

The ruling class, made up of the traditional elites that run the Republican Party and the Democratic Party, is employing draconian forms of censorship on its right-wing and left-wing critics in a desperate effort to cling to power. The traditional elites were discredited for pushing through a series of corporate assaults on workers, from deindustrialization to trade deals. They were unable to stem rising inflation, the looming economic crisis and the ecological emergency. They were incapable of carrying out significant social and political reform to ameliorate widespread suffering and refused to accept responsibility for two decades of military fiascos in the Middle East. And now they have launched a new and sophisticated McCarthyism. Character assassination. Algorithms. Shadow banning. De-platforming.

Censorship is the last resort of desperate and unpopular regimes. It magically appears to make a crisis go away. It comforts the powerful with the narrative they want to hear, one fed back to them by courtiers in the media, government agencies, think tanks and academia. The problem of Donald Trump is solved by censoring Donald Trump. The problem of left-wing critics, such as myself, is solved by censoring us. The result is a world of make-believe.

Ok you lost me here. The “elites” caused all these things. Any conversation that does not acknowledge that the globalists did all this deliberately is misinformation.

the ecological emergency


And this is just plain fairytale. The only ecological emergency is pollution.

This is my irritation with Chris Hedges. He's kind of fucking stupid honestly, or he's very dishonest and pretends that our power structure is trying to solve any problems at all.

The Biden family is a criminal family. Just like the Clintons are, just like the Bushes are. They are criminals, they are a criminal syndicate, they work together. They do not work on behalf of the public. They start wars because it's profitable for them. They are complete, total, criminals.

Hedges ignores this. I don't think he's much worth listening to because he's either actually stupid, or he's criminally dishonest.

He's complaining about censorship NOW, but only because he's being censored. I think fuck him.

Yup. Hedges rubs me the wrong way. In 2014, he announced he was both vegan and abstinent (after having 4 kids), an aesthetic guilty liberal type.

EDIT: That's Ascetic, not Aesthetic. An Ascetic is a Hermit, Stylite who sits on a pillar in the desert, or self-denying Buddhist type who refuses to eat above the bare minimum. Aesthetic is appreciating beauty.

Former Intelligence Officials, Citing Russia, Say Big Tech Monopoly Power is Vital to National Security
When the U.S. security state announces that Big Tech's centralized censorship power must be preserved, we should ask what this reveals about whom this regime serves.

A group of former intelligence and national security officials on Monday issued a jointly signed letter warning that pending legislative attempts to restrict or break up the power of Big Tech monopolies — Facebook, Google, and Amazon — would jeopardize national security because, they argue, their centralized censorship power is crucial to advancing U.S. foreign policy. The majority of this letter is devoted to repeatedly invoking the grave threat allegedly posed to the U.S. by Russia as illustrated by the invasion of Ukraine, and it repeatedly points to the dangers of Putin and the Kremlin to justify the need to preserve Big Tech's power in its maximalist form. Any attempts to restrict Big Tech's monopolistic power would therefore undermine the U.S. fight against Moscow.

From the end of the article:

It should go without saying that these life-long security state operatives do not care in the slightest about the dangers of "disinformation.” Indeed — as evidenced by the fact that most of them generated one Russiagate fraud after the next during


This biggest national security threat we have, is the intelligence community at this point. That's the irony.

When George W. Bush said "they h8 us 4 R Freedumb" he wasn't talking about Islamic terrorist groups, he was talking about the oligarchs that run the United States.

Lol, that's true. The oligarchs particularly hate our free speech, because even one person calling out their bullshit greatly encourages others to do the same:


Enormous efforts were spent to silence “misinformation”. Why? Because Solomon Asch found out that any expression of disagreement — lack of consensus — immediately kills compliance...

the disinformation governance board would be the american "ministry of truth"
and that cannot be countenanced. make orwell fiction again

wow. the US federal government is A LOT more worried about losing control of the informational narrative than i realized.

this is some desperate, scary stuff.

the department of homeland security is creating a new division and, i kid you not, it’s called the “disinformation governance board.”

“boy did i call it or what?”
-george orwell

this terrifying new foray into fascist informational suppression claims a narrow mandate, but are any truly fool enough to fall for such an implausible tale, especially right in front of the american mid-terms and right after jen psaki got done telling us about how we need the federal government to be more active in suppressing medical misinformation and russia narratives?

the cure for bad speech is more speech

the best way to marginalize hateful people is to let them reveal themselves

and censorship is always the greater evil.

It was 1946 and this lost educational film on despotism was required curriculum at every high school in America.

The associated test, 11 pages quizzed students on the concepts.

By 1967, this film was removed from all libraries.

The term despotism has since become unfashionable

It's romantic to think at we once didn't have despotism, but you want another take on it?

I think when the US is actually threatened with an external threat which is regarded as a real actual danger, that's the only time that our establishment decides they need the actual help and real support of the citizenry and so, they actually give them their rights.

"Death by a thousand cuts" is a mechanism to destabilize, the opposite of myth.

Constant and endless criticism any time an institution failed or a wild mob did something foolish, for which the entire culture gets the blame. Then they use repetition and shotgunning along with shouting "myth" "White Male" etc. at any attempt to tell the traditional story (or myth, if you prefer).

This is why Western Civ is depreciated and often optional (not even one class) in Colleges, but Deconstructionism and Foucaultian narratives are required.

I understand the danger of realistic and reasonable criticism of myths. I know it can completely demonize anybody, but making myths is problematic too.

Villains aren't like in the movies. We should understand what a true villain is. Villains aren't entirely villains..

It's all about the Narrative.

"Salem Witch Trials were about evil Whites and Religious Superstition"
or the truth
"Salem Witch Trials were initiated by young girls against mostly landless older women and widows and known competitors/engaged women to/for attractive potential partners (a pattern repeated in Africa and Asia, to free up both nearby land AND high value potential spouses), and, when the Statewide Courts met, new standards of evidence were introduced banning Prophecy and Dreams as evidence. By leadership consisting of deeply pious Radical Reformationists, all White and all Male, in fact all Anglo-Saxon. Progress towards justice was made."

OR
"The Puritans soon went to war with the Indians who helped them."
versus
"The Puritans and Indians signed an alliance, as the latter wanted aid against extermination by other bands of Indians. The Alliance and Peace lasted almost a century, which compared to even inter-Indian or inter-European alliances, was actually surprisingly very long."
