The word censorship is becoming more prevalent in everyday conversations.
It wasn’t long ago that most Americans heard the word censorship and thought of days gone by – evil dictators you learned about in history class that Americans defeated in hard-fought victories.
But now it appears that Americans actually are bowing to the Big Tech censorship gods, according to this recent poll.
You’ve probably seen the meme, “Make 1984 Fiction Again,” and you’ve likely chuckled.
That is until you realized just how accurate the statement is and how applicable it is to the country’s current state.
In the famous novel written by George Orwell, one of the most notable themes is censorship.
It is especially evident in the “Ministry of Truth,” where public archives and photographs were manipulated to erase certain people from history.
Starting to sound a little familiar?
Of course, this book was published in 1949, long before Orwell, or anyone for that matter, had even the slightest of ideas about what Big Tech was or how it would play a pivotal role in a very similar form of censorship.
Censorship has become a very real and very prevalent act over the last few years.
Now more than ever, people are seeing information erased, and history has almost wholly been done away with because the Left wants to keep you “safe” and foster an environment of “unity and inclusivity.”
In reality, the Left wants to brainwash everyone into believing its radical ideologies, and the easiest way to do that is by censoring anything that doesn’t fit the narrative.
Unfortunately, a new Pew Research Center poll shows that a growing number of Americans are okay with this tactic.
The recent poll showed that a whopping 48 percent of Americans want the government to restrict misinformation, compared to just 39 percent in 2018.
Pew Research Center asked respondents what they thought should be done about “false information online,” and the answers were shocking.
Those who believe the social media companies are responsible for stopping misinformation hasn’t changed much over the last few years, with 59 percent believing that today compared to 56 percent believing that three years ago.
But the support for government censorship has jumped 9 points in just three years.
That is a scary statistic and proof that Democrat-controlled Big Tech is winning the fight to take away your Constitutional rights.
In the grand scheme of things, this poll shows that about half of all people actually want the government to violate the First Amendment.
People actually believe the government has their best interest at heart and would never criminalize true information or censor criticism of its own actions.
If you’ve been paying any attention at all, you know that the government does not care about what is good for you and is actively criminalizing the truth, those who speak the truth, and anyone who criticizes the current administration.
But the Left continues to spin it as purely a “safety measure,” and, unfortunately, the American people are buying it.
Biden and the rest of the Democrat Party are working overtime to try and prove to people that there is no violation of the First Amendment and that they are just trying to help you.
Americans need to wake up and realize that very soon, the very freedoms they have come to love and that are endowed by their Creator will be stripped away from them all in the name of “safety.”
