Barack Obama may be out of office but he’s still pulling lots of strings.
He’ll do anything to save Democrats from total collapse under Biden.
But Barack Obama just let slip an insane new proposal to silence conservatives.
The Left is increasingly losing the control they once had on setting the narrative through their enforcers in Big Tech and the corporate-controlled media.
Social media allowed conservatives to bypass the gatekeepers set up by the Left to control the flow of information.
With Joe Biden’s regime collapsing, the Left is desperate to reestablish their dominance over social media.
Leftist elites just held a conference on the “Disinformation and Erosion of Democracy” put on by the liberal magazine The Atlantic.
Disinformation is of course the Left’s newspeak for anything that punches a hole in their narrative.
They’ve taken to calling anything conservatives say as “disinformation” to try to discredit it.
Barack Obama was brought in as the conference’s keynote speaker.
He’ll never turn down the opportunity to target conservatives.
The host asked Obama what social media companies should do “to make sure that they’re not privileging anger, privileging division and polarization through their algorithms.”
Obama put the time-honored American tradition of anonymous political speech in his crosshairs.
According to him, online anonymity is the cause of the problems on social media.
“In some circumstances, it’s important to preserve anonymity…so that there’s space in repressive societies to discuss issues but as we’ve all learned, it’s a lot harder to be rude, obnoxious, cruel, or lie when somebody knows you’re lying and knows who you are and I think that there may be modifications there that can be made,” Obama remarked.
This is a call to shut down the speech of conservatives online.
Anonymity gives conservatives the ability to speak freely.
The Left desperately wants to strip away the protection that being anonymous online offers.
If conservatives were forced to use their real names, the Left would be able to bring the full brunt of the Cancel Mob against them.
Leftists would happily harass conservatives offline to shut them up online.
This would ultimately let the Left have complete dominance over social media.
Many conservatives would have to hold back on what they say for fear of having a leftist mob targeting their employer or their family.
Anonymous political speech is a time-honored American tradition going back to the days of the Founding Fathers.
James Madison and Alexander Hamilton both wrote portions of The Federalist Papers using pen names.
Thomas Paine’s Common Sense, the Revolutionary War eras’ most influential call for Patriots to resist British tyranny, was published anonymously.
The Supreme Court has repeatedly affirmed the right to anonymous speech.
“Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority … to protect unpopular individuals from retaliation,” the Court said.
The Left in Europe has been going after anonymity and Obama wants to bring this European socialist scheme to America.
With Democrats exposed as total frauds under Biden, they’ll do anything to shut down their critics.
